Our scholars look at the news we’ve missed in our absence, and take the temperature on AEW as an organization one year in.
To be an ally in the fight against racial intolerance in our country, we ask that you please consider donating to the funds below, and register to vote:
Andrew and Tyler address the state of the world at large, how the pro wrestling community has responded, and what you can do to be an ally in this time. (00:40)
Then, it’s time for the scholars to go through some of the hot wrestling news that took place While They Were Sleeping- Including Becky Lynch’s announcement, WWE shutting down production due to COVID, NXT In Your House and AEW Double or Nothing, and their thoughts on Edge and Randy Orton’s “Greatest Match of All Time.” (13:30)
For the first time we hear from our AEW Correspondent Sarah Knarzer, who runs down all things AEW from the emerge of Blood Orange Cassidy, to the roster’s lack of POC, what FTR can bring to the table, and who has the worst spray tan. (47:20)
And lastly, the scholars take an AEW Temperature Check now that they’ve been in existence for a whole year. How did they do at delivering on their initial promises? What is the identity of AEW and its fan? Where is the roster lacking? And how can AEW continue to evolve in a positive way in the next year? (54:00)
