This week, Danielle and Lindsey are joined by Emily Pratt She’s a wrestling writer and reporter for Uproxx.

There’s a lot of things to be really excited about right now, including the G1 Climax! The tournament kicks off next month and the card is STACKED! There are plenty of big returns advertised and incredibly talented performers facing throughout. Whether it’s KENTA vs. Ibushi or Okada vs. Archer, expect a lot of geeking out.

On the WWE side, there’s also the prospect of Samoa Joe taking on Kofi Kingston that we’re really into. Plus Drew Gulak finally capturing the Cruiserweight title. But there’s also a lot that we’re unsure about. Why is Shane McMahon involved in so many stories? And how much faith do we have that WWE is going to tastefully portray Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch’s relationship?

This week, Hal and Danielle are joined by David F. Walker and Brett Weldele. They are the writer and artist (respectively) behind the new comic series "One Fall."

The book is all about a third-generation wrestler who fights for survival and profit in a world of supernatural creatures who all want the honor of killing him in the ring… again. They’ll tell us all about their project, how they became wrestling fans and the finer points of the best bars to watch wrestling at.

The Beatdown: Rey Mysterio vs. Eddie Guerrero (2005)

Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero were both credited for helping popularize a lucha libre in the U.S. like few, if any, ever could have. They were best friends and frequent partners. And in their final series of matches, the stakes got more personal than most rivalries in WWE ever do. It was a contest that featured beat downs, betrayals, great promos and the custody of children. Hal and Danielle will look into what made one of Eddie’s last major storylines work so well… and why it wouldn’t have worked if they both weren’t so good.

The Three Count

Danielle put over Effy’s Twink Gauntlet and Stokely Hathaway’s quest to regain his CD player.
