Another five day “weekend” of WWE wrestling is in the books, and while Royal Rumble was largely very predictable (yours truly correctly predicted every match except one), that’s a very good thing. This week on Poor Taste Wrestling we’re breaking down the entire card — all six hours of it — and what it means for WrestleMania.
We couldn’t forget about NXT TakeOver: Phoenix either, since as usual, NXT upstaged the main roster with another excellent supercard. Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa hold both singles titles in NXT — now what?
Lastly, unfortunately, we talk about the news that Dean Ambrose is leaving WWE in April after his contract is up, and Hideo Itami has been granted his release. The presence of AEW seems to already be affecting the landscape of WWE in ways not seen since the heyday of WCW.
Poor Taste Wrestling is hosted by JJ “Job Van Dam” Travers, Mike “The Wolverine” Pursell, and “HCK” Patrick Ross.
