Tyler and Andrew talk briefly about how much has changed in Wrestling since our Christmas break, and recap the standout matches, and breakout stars from New Japan’s WrestleKingdom 13. (01:20)

Then it’s time to focus on the brand-new wrestling promotion ALL ELITE WRESTLING! First we rundown the facts that we know about the roster, look at the rare occurrence of a new major promotion coming into existence, and what AEW can learn from WCW about going head-to-head with WWE. (16:50)

Next, we rundown all the rumors floating around about the new promotion, including potential TV networks, how their storytelling could circumvent good guys and bad guys, and we break it to new fans that WRESTLERS DON’T HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE. (37:15)

Finally, we put on our scouting hats, and try to assess the field of potential free agents. We look at disgruntled WWE employees jumping ship, perfectly happy WWE employees using AEW as a bargaining chip, and Tyler reveals an ill-advised bet he made. (1:06:20)
