AEW debuts on TNT on Wednesday, October 2. And a peek into the wrestling bubble that many hardcore wrestling fans find themselves in... we included!
Vaughn Johnson (@VaughnMJohnson) and Nick Piccone (@nickpiccone) discuss the bubble that hardcore wrestling fans often find themselves in. After RAW Reunion, is it possible that reaching to the casual audience is actually more important than reaching to the hardcore base? Has the hardcore base already turned on WWE completely? We talk about a phenomenon known as "The Wrestling Bubble" and whether it's good to pop that bubble sometimes to get a view of the bigger picture.
Before that discussion, we touch on AEW officially announcing, via press release, that they'll debut on TNT on Wednesday, October 2. Should be a big week of pro wrestling news, as SmackDown is set to move to FOX on Friday, October 4. We'll talk about expectations for AEW and how much, if any, other programming that runs against it will affect its first night numbers.
