RATINGS TALK. Not a lot, really. Aunt Pam and Sasha continue to carry WWE. If an underdog doesn't overcome is he more popular than before? Is someone going to lose an eye? Bad friends don't call but it makes them cool babyfaces, right? All of this and more on our traversing the week in professional wrestling.

Overall the wrestling was pretty good, but WWE makes some moves that step in it a bit with R-Truth, Mandy Rose and the Drake Maverick angle. We liked a lot in WWE, AEW and NXT. All hail Aunt Pam. Also we preview NXT Takeover: In Your House Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/shake-them-ropes-pro-wrestling-podcast-wwe-nxt-njpw/donations Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands

Chris and Jeff are a little heavy into the critique of comedy wrestling. Drew Gulak re-signs, FTR debuts, and the Hockey Glass era of WWE begins. Also, is Chris taking being a cat dad too far.

Chris and Jeff discuss the untimely deaths of Larry Csonka of 411Wrestling and Shad Gaspard of Cryme Tyme. In less important stuff we discuss Drew Gulak leaving WWE, if Charlotte needs to be on all three shows, how Aunt Pam has grown in the empty arena era, the last stand of Drake Maverick and our feeling of "eh" going into Double Or Nothing.

Chris and Jeff celebrate the career of Becky Lynch. The parallels to Daniel Bryan are amazing. Also amazing were some of the storytelling decisions: Asuka during the Becky promo, Otis as Gollum and killing his babyface aura in a two show (he's not Dusty), Charlotte's one week heel turn, etc. An extended show for your weekend.

The Money in the Bank matches will now be happening simultaneously. Jerry Lawler gives a horrible excuse for making inappropriate jokes. What is the logic of the Sheamus build. Oh and Jeff is old.

Brought to you this week by Roman (http://getroman.com/vow for a free consult and free 2 day shipping) and ZipRecruiter (http://ziprecruiter.com/vow), this week more came out about how nasty this XFL bankruptcy was. Drake Maverick is being used as story fodder, but the vignettes on both Wednesday night show were pretty darn good. The arenas are still empty, but maybe they're realizing this is a television show.

The news from Friday to Friday kept getting worse or dumber depending on your point of view. Talent cuts, taping changes, and a company absolutely obtuse to the image they're projecting. Plus, the death of the voice of WWF, Howard Finkel and of course, no one knows how to give people a proper tribute.

Chris Novembrino and Jeff Hawkins (with mic on) review the Firefly Funhouse. Chris gives his thoughts on the Boneyard Match. Was Night 1 or Night 2 better? Was it a success? Should the show have gone on? And of course, AUNT PAM. Plus ridiculous arcane references like The Tick, The Cell, and Herman's Head.

AEW goes open air empty arena, NXT goes clip show. On the main roster, Gronk and Austin don't rise to the occasion. But there were some gems: Otis, Daniel Bryan's vanity promotion, and of course Asuka being the best member of the commentary team. Plus we start with way too much Kenny Rogers talk.

*EXPLICIT LANGUAGE* Back in June of 2019, on the somewhat dormant Patreon, Chris and Jeff recorded a look back at Beyond the Mat, which is now back on Netflix. Jeff went to a Universal employee screening when it first came out, and he and Chris go through what opinions have changed, what aged well, what didn't. Also a few odd sidebars here and there. If you're holed up, give it a watch and then give us a listen. Support th...
