On the latest episode of PTW, we’re talking the biggest news of the week in the world of pro wrestling, which is of course the official announcement of All Elite Wrestling, a new promotion spearheaded by Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks, and financially backed by the Khan family, billionaires who own the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars and the Premier Leagu’s Fulham FC soccer team. The announcement came with the surprise appearances by PAC (f/k/a Neville) and Chris Jericho, who have signed to the promotion as well.
From there we go over results from NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 13, a show that largely lived up to our lofty expectations, featuring probably the final NJPW matches for the Young Bucks, Cody and Kenny Omega in light of the AEW news.
After that, it’s back to our regularly scheduled WWE talk, including our thoughts on the first true week of the company’s “fresh start” (spoiler: SmackDown was great, Raw not so much…so, nothing’s really changed), and we look forward to a Royal Rumble card that is really shaping up to be something special.
Poor Taste Wrestling is hosted by JJ “Job Van Dam” Travers, Mike “The Wolverine” Pursell, and “HCK” Patrick Ross.
