PWW 052: Pushing The Envelope

Tony Schiavone and Beau Le Blanc were back for another video edition of Pro-Wrestling Wednesday on facebook LIVE. The usual show open chatter lead to Beau asking Tony the last time his wife had attended a Wrestling show and Tony told a great story about his wife sitting on his lap while Mike Tenay, Bobby Heenan and himself being held up at an arena by fans banging on their van. The WWE quickly wrote off the Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar match for Rumble, is this more of the "New Era" where WWE will scrap plans in an effort to put out a better product? Once again Beau was surprised by the new #1 Contender, but Tony wasn't because he's a Pro-Wrestling professional. Both the Alexa Bliss and Mandy Rose segments from Raw and Smackdown seemed like attitude era throwbacks, is WWE venturing into "pushing the envelope" territory once again? Beau and Tony try to settle these questions and more, this week on Pro-Wrestling Wednesday.

Also, check out their interview with Ring of Honor's Television Champion, Jeff Cobb. Relatively recent newcomer to ROH who won the TV Title in his first match. Tony and Beau talk to the Hawaiian Hulk about the opportunities available to him with some of ROH's top stars moving on to AEW and whether he'd go the same NXT route former TV Champion Punishment Martinez and his old Tag Team partner Matt Riddle have.
