SlamBros: Summerslam 2016 – Back to Brooklyn (PODCAST)
What a wild week for wrestling fans, the WWE is heading back to Brooklyn for Summerslam and NXT Takeover! Wellness violations be damned! The Slambros, Illa YC and Boman12L , have plenty of wrestling to cover for the 9th 5th episode. Another week another health update for a wrestler, this time Shelton Benjamin. How long could this new injury keep him away from returning to the WWE? Also the Slambros examine Stephanie McMahon’s plan to introduce new more diverse content into their programing. Given the WWE’s past, can Vince and company be trusted with LGBT characters?
Outside of the dirt sheets, Summerslam weekend is packed! NXT is returning to Brooklyn for another stacked Takeover card. The roster is almost entirely new, but Triple H’s little promotion could once again steal the whole weekend with must see in ring debuts and matches like Asuka vs. Bayley and Samoa Joe vs. Shinsuke Nakamura. That’s only a taste to the main event, Summerslam, on Sunday. John Cena vs AJ Styles II, Brock Lesnar vs Randy Orton, Finn Balor vs Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose vs Ziggler, one or multiple of these could be a match of the year contender. The Slambros have all this and more covered. Plus, this isn’t even their final form!
