Ryan & Drew return with a review of the 1997 WWF PPV In Your House: D-Generation-X! We look back at the WWF in the direct aftermath of the Montreal Screwjob, the build of the Kane-Undertaker feud, the rise of The Rock & Steve Austin, and whole load of terribly booked matches and finishes. Check it out!
Back this week with more news and notes from the worlds of professional wrestling and MMA; a bit of a run down of some matches from NXT Takeover: In Your House from this past Sunday; and we have the first match-up in our SummerSlam Greatest Match of All Time (G.M.O.T.) tournament and our predictions for Backlash.
Drew & Ryan return with another special “PoliTalks” episode to discuss the latest in current political events, with a major focus on the global protests relating to the Black Lives Matter movement. Plus a look at the 2020 election and how everything going on right now could play into the campaign. #BlackLivesMatter
PS – While we try not to espouse our personal political beliefs too much, the ongoing events in the US & elsewhere require an honest and frank approach. We here at Against The Mat wholeheartedly support and commend the BLM movement and what it stands for. There is no room for racism in today’s society and needs to be addressed at the systemic & cultural level. Therefore, we encourage you to check out the BLM website & contribute if you’re able. Every little bit helps, and this is a cause that cannot be ignored.
Drew & Ryan return for another Web Exclusive PPV retro review podcast – this time revisiting the summer of 2001 and the Invasion! The most financially successful non-big 4 PPV is highlighted by a Jeff Hardy/RVD hardcore match, the “Inaugural Brawl” between Team WWF & The Alliance, and a bunch of other wacky stuff. Check it out!
We are back to our usual weekly episode, our last episode of “Season 9”, with some news & notes, the rundown of AEW’s Double or Nothing event, and we learn who will be our our second ATM GOAT finalist in the second hour.
