It’s a tale of two WWE shows…

You’ve got Smackdown which has set up a lot of stars, including Jinder Mahal, The Singh brothers and Breezango, for the spotlight that’s eluded them in their careers. But is that push coming too fast and too soon? We’ll take a look.

On the other hand, you’ve got RAW, which is treading water going into the first post-Wrestlemania Pay Per View “Payback.” But there were still a few things worth noting this week, including the much-hyped Dumpster Match between Kalisto and Braun Strowman.

My Special Wrestler

Chris Cubas is a stand-up comedian who had previously lapsed as a wrestling fan for a number of years. But who finally brought back the excitement for him? None other than the hardcore legend, Mick Foley.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Screenjunkies’s coverage of the upcoming Vince McMahon biopic

Mike put over Table for three starring Shawn Michaels, Kevin Nash and AJ Styles..

Hal put over JBL on Talking Smack.

The Superstar shake-up has led to some new developments that we all expected and ones that we absolutely couldn’t have seen coming.

Jinder Mahal has officially become the Number 1 contender for the WWE Title! He’s got the Bollywood Boyz as his new heaters and it looks like him and his veins are set for the big time. We’ll tell you how we feel about his major push.

Plus, Alexa Bliss and Charlotte have set their sights on their respective brand's major titles. Is it the right move to get them in the spotlight so soon? Probably! We’ll explain.

Plus, more geeking out about Braun Strowman, a look at the U.S. Title competition and a lot more.

Fashion Corner

As WWE has tried to move away from the standard objectification of its female athletes, the fashion of the women has changed. But that doesn’t mean that the sexiness factor has been completely eliminated. Does WWE need to completely eliminate that if they want things to be on a truly equal level? We’ll take a look.

The Three Count:

Hal put over Edge and Christian’s Pod of Awesomeness.

Danielle put over Referee John Cone and his great bump from the exploding ring.

Mike put over 3-Minute warning in honor of Rosey Ano’ai’s recent passing.

HOW SHOOK ARE YOU?!

Thanks to the Superstar Shake-up, let’s say very!

So many wrestlers have switched shows, including guys who elevated themselves in the last year like The Miz, Kevin Owens, Alexa Bliss, Charlotte and more.

But was this the best thing to do, especially when the brand split is less than a year old? We’ll take a look.

Plus, Braun Strowman flipped over a freakin’ ambulance! With Roman Reigns (supposedly) inside! We’ll talk about that and explain why we’re going to miss Mauro Renallo so much on Smackdown.

Hosted by Danielle Radford, Mike Eagle and Lindsey Kelk.

If you loved hearing Lindsey, go read her books! And check out her videos on YouTube where she asks today’s biggest wrestlers questions from our Facebook group!

The Three Count:

Danielle put over The Webcomic Botched Spot

Lindsey put over Kevin Owens on Talking Smack.

Mike put over Seth Rollins’s promo on RAW.

Wrestlemania is the longest, most exciting and most exhausting WWE event every single year. The 33rd edition of the show was no different.

In fact, between Mania, the Hall of Fame, RAW, Smackdown, TakeOver: Orlando and the pre and post-shows for those events, there were over 24 hours (!!!!!) of WWE content on TV in the past seven days.

New champions were crowned, new stars debuted, old stars retired, and a lot more.

It’s can all be overwhelming, but luckily the Nation of Conversation is here to break down all of the things that happened… or at least the stuff that we cared about.

Happy Max Fun Drive finale week! And HAPPY WRESTLEMANIA!

We’re gonna take a look at some of the biggest matches on the card. We’ve got the RAW Women’s match between Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair, Bayley and Nia Jax which is now an elimination match! The RAW Tag Title match which is now ladder match! The Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal… which is also happening!

Main Event:

Hal and Danielle are going to break down some of the biggest points of contention as we move towards the WWE’s biggest event of the year.

Then, Mike Eagle joins the show to discuss one of the under-discussed points of professional wrestling: The fashion.

Wow, a bunch of things happened on WWE TV this week!

There have been THREE Champions crowned since Sunday: Bray Wyatt finally captured the WWE Championship at Elimination Chamber; Naomi beat Alexa Bliss for the Smackdown Women’s Championship, and Bayley defeated Charlotte for the RAW Women’s Championship.

Which one are we most excited for? We’ll explain.

And was Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens’ Festival of Friendship the best RAW segment ever? Right now it’s kind of hard to think otherwise. We’ll gush about it and speculate about what could come next.

Plus, in a new segment, Danielle breaks down the past and present of misogyny and misandry in wrestling.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Bella Brains on YouTube.

Mike put over The return of Gillberg.

Hal put over Alexa Bliss’ continued promo perfection on Talking Smack.

Even in a quiet week of wrestling, the WWE machine keeps on moving.

Samoa Joe made his big debut against a Samoan Joe (who you may know better as Roman Reigns). We’ll talk about what we thought of Joe’s first RAW main event.

Plus, Smackdown’s got a Pay Per View this Sunday: Elimination Chamber. This year’s participants are AJ Styles, The Miz, John Cena, Bray Wyatt and Baron Corbin and Dean Ambrose. Who’s looking strong? And who should win the WWE Title to take on Randy Orton at Wrestlemania?

My Special Wrestler:

Jarrett Williams is the comics artist behind the Super Pro KO series. He’s here to tell you about one of the most loved… and hated superstars in WWE history: Triple H.

Williams just released the third installment in the Super Pro KO series. It’s entitled Gold for Glory.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Sami Zayn’s recent article using his work to erase the stigma on Muslims AND the new WWE Champions mobile game.

Mike put over The Rock and Roll express being put in the WWE Hall of Fame.

Hal put over Tye Dillinger’s recent promo after entering into the Royal Rumble.

For the last two years, the Royal Rumble has been a controversial affair. The previous winners have led to many accusations that the WWE doesn’t understand its audience anymore. Was this year any different? Well… kinda.

We’re breaking down everything we cared about from the Rumble… including what was probably the biggest troll job the company has ever done: Roman Reigns at Number 30.

Plus, a Big Four Pay Per View on Sunday means that we also get a new NXT TakeOver on Saturday. And while there was noticeably less stay power on this week’s show than usual, most people on the card raised their stock on the developmental brand.

We’ll break down all the biggest happenings from both shows, including the debut of Samoa Joe… and the injury of Seth Rollins.
