In part two of this week's two-part episode of The Fix with PWTorch VIP analyst Todd Martin and host PWTorch editor Wade Keller, they answer mailbag questions on these topics: - Is Wade unfairly soft on WWE and hard on AEW in his analysis? - Is MJF acting like Kirk Cousins? - Would Jim Cornette have helped AEW if he worked with Tony Khan and would he have lasted? - Would Tony Khan trade MJF to WWE in exchange for another wrestler, if so who, and would it be legal? - Is it good business for Tony to give MJF a raise over the next 18 months given what's happened in the last few weeks? - Is MJF a “Cody Rhodes Guy” and could Cody be actively recruiting wrestlers from AEW? - Should Malikai Black have stayed solo and would he be in a better position? - Why do we hear copyrighted music in the background on sporting events but pro wrestling can't do that? - Who should do play-by-play on the Forbidden Door event? - Is the MJF promo approach actually low risk/high reward given that AEW has an established viewership floor, but so much room to grow from creating a buzz? - When do you believe the MJF situation turned from a shoot to a work? - Did MJF include too many truths in his rant if his genuine goal was to get heel heat? - Does Chris Jericho's political affiliations change how you evaluate and enjoy his work in pro wrestling? How do you get past that when watching other wrestlers? - After the vague Hangman Page promo about facing C.M. Punk last week setting up a potential AEW Originals vs. Ex-WWE guys storyline, could MJF disappear for a little bit and then make a surprise return on the pro-AEW side of that whole deal, presumably as a babyface?

SHOW SUMMARY: Justin Joynt of the “Top Rope Nation Podcast” debuts on Pro Wrestling Then and Now to look back at WCW WrestleWar '92. They start by discussing the hire of Bill Watts, which took place five days before this event, referencing multiple excerpts from Torch newsletters, and talk about his undoing, which ironically came from a portion of the Torch Talk done with Wade Keller back in 1991. They then run down the entire card, which featured Flyin' Brian for the Light Heavyweight Championship, Steiner Brothers vs. Takayuki Iizuka & Tatsumi Fujinami for the #1 contendership for the IWGP Tag Team Championship, and Sting's Squadron vs. the Dangerous Alliance in a WarGames match. Highlight topics are the lack of good undercard matches, announcing, the stiffness of the Steiners' style, and the great storytelling of the WarGames match vs. WarGames matches of today.Warning: Some language on this show may be NSFW.

SHOW SUMMARY: In part two of this week's two-part episode of The Fix with PWTorch VIP analyst Todd Martin and host PWTorch editor Wade Keller, they answer mailbag questions on these topics: What would Vince McMahon do if he became U.S. President? Rebooking WrestleMania 38 with an AEW wrestler put in place of one of the WWE wrestlers for every match. What would Roman Reigns need to accomplish to crack the list of WWE's Mt. Rushmore and who would he likely bump off for both the WrestleMania years and also all-time WWWF/WWE? Is Britt Baker stale? At what point will Wade be chanting “Finals!” during the Timberwolves game on Friday? Should AEW book Jade Cargill to win the AEW Women's Title in addition to the TBS Title? Does Todd think Wade gets too critical of AEW? Why are WWE announcers pretending Ezekiel isn't just Elias with a shaved face? Does Randy Orton deserve any consideration for the Greatest of All Time list? What top star would you recommend Tony Khan sacrifice to a top NJPW wrestler at Forbidden Door? What top star should NJPW sacrifice to a top AEW star? Could Todd slip a made-up name into his NXT TV review without Wade noticing? Should AEW bring back the World Cup of Wrestling tournament that WCW did in 1995 but do a better job? What does Todd think of Wade being okay with Pete Dunne turning into Butch?
