PWW 051: New Year, New Era, New Wrestling Company

Tony Schiavone and Beau Le Blanc did their first new episode in the New Year to talk about the passing of "Mean" Gene Okerlund and their memories of the legendary Wrestling broadcaster. Beau gave a brief re-cap of his trip to Center-Stage for the NXT show with EC3, Lacey Evans and others wrapping up their final dates before moving to the main WWE Roster. Of course Tony didn't understand Conrad Thompson's text and did not "join the revolution" in Jacksonville for the debut of All Elite Wrestling, the new promotion spearheaded by Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks along with Shad and Tony Khan. A discussion of their "Double or Nothing" Event and what it will take for the upstart promotion to succeed was discussed. Then as usual, attention turned to Vincent K McMahon's wrestling company, the WWE. For a "New Era" it sure seemed like we were still getting some of the matches we've been seeing, albeit with much more character development in the likes of the "New" Daniel Bryan and Mandy Rose to name a few. As always, keep up with PWW @PWW929 on twitter and facebook and you can watch the facebook live version below.
