It was an incredibly eventful week for WWE, but not entirely for the reasons that the company wanted it to be.

Enzo Amore has been fired following the revelations that he has been accused and is under investigation for rape and kept the situation from his employers. In this era of #MeToo, this sort of thing can’t stand in wrestling. But how scared are we that this could be just the start of WWE stars, past and present, being called out for similar heinous actions? 

And in much lighter news, WWE celebrated the 25th anniversary of RAW! Unfortunately, people watching it from the Manhattan Center, it wasn’t nearly as entertaining. But between all of the legends and Miz winning back the Intercontinental Title, which of the hosts had fun, and who hated it?

Plus, Sami Zayn picked up a major win against AJ Styles in the main event of Smackdown. Is this the signature win he needed as a heel or is this undone by taking a big loss on Sunday?

All that, and we continue to be excited about the Royal Rumble and feel like the Mixed Match Challenge is still providing a ton of things to love.

Main Event

Every time there’s a major anniversary or occasion in WWE, it’s a safe bet that we’re going to be treated to a wealth of nostalgia. And while a little bit of that is fun, when does it cross the line? And how big of a problem is it when a young team like the Revival is destroyed by a group of older wrestlers for the purposes of a nostalgia pop?

The Three Count

Danielle put over Becky Lynch and Sami Zayn in the Mixed Match Challenge.

Mike put over Mike Parrow's interviews on his experience as a gay wrestler.

Hal put over the post-match promo in the MMC from the Miz and Asuka

Hosted by Hal LublinDanielle Radford and Mike Eagle. 

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

Noted wrestling fan, video-game aficionado and rapper Mega Ran officially joins the Nation of Conversation.

And we’re going to continue to talk all about his experience with Wrestle Kingdom 12 since he saw it LIVE in the Tokyo Dome!

Plus, we’ll take a look at how much fun it was to see Braun Strowman tear up the ($12 million) production trucks, why AJ Styles is delivering some of the worst promos of his career and why the Revival is set to take a hit from every single legend next week on RAW.

And we’ll keep looking ahead to the Royal Rumble, including who would be a great winner for the first ever Woman’s edition of the event.

Main Event

Seth Rollins’s signature finishing move has at last returned! After a brief stint with the Pedigree and (ugh) King’s Landing, the Curb Stomp is back with a vengeance. What makes it such an effective finisher? And who could stand to get a new finisher in the next few weeks?

The Three Count

Mike put over Bruce Prichard's stories on the latest episode The Masked Man podcast.

Mega Ran put over Rusev's encouragement to Lana for the MMC.

Hal put over Kurt Angle's awful acting.

Hosted by Hal LublinMike Eagle and Mega Ran.
