This week had a little bit more adult-oriented content on WWE TV, which made for some entertaining shows. But can WWE rely on doing these things week in and week out in 2019 to gain popularity?
Vaughn Johnson (@VaughnMJohnson) and Nick Piccone (@nickpiccone) discuss the Braun Strowman/Bobby Lashley angle from RAW, the Kofi Kingston/Samoa Joe promo from SmackDown and a few more tidbits about this week's WWE programming providing a tonal shift than we've seen in, well, years.
The guys also discuss whether or not WWE can continue with adult-oriented themes in 2019, even if they don't go as far as the Attitude Era in the late 90s did. Will they gain fans by shifting the storylines like they did in the 90s? Will lapsed fans come back? The guys discuss their thoughts on it all.
And at the end, the guys run down the blocks for the NJPW G1 Climax and give their prediction on who'll walk away the victor of pro wrestling's most grueling tournament.
