WWE SmackDown full show review, results, highlights, and livestream post show with JDfromNY.

Coming out of WrestleMania I, we had Saturday Night's Main Event debuting on NBC in May of 1985! These shows were always structured weird, and this one was the first one to do so. The "main event" was actually the second match on the show, with Hulk Hogan defending the WWF Title against "Cowboy" Bob "Ace" Orton. Wendi Richter also puts her WWF Ladies Wrestling Title on the line against the legendary Fabulous Moolah while Cyndi Lauper cheers her on. The show also takes place on Mother's Day, so we get a lot of special stuff going on to celebrate mothers (oddly enough, Mr. T doesn't talk about his mama). In the news, we also talk for almost an hour about the state of the territories in the United States as well as wrestling abroad in Japan and in Mexico. There's a lot going on, not all of it is great, but all of it is entertaining as hell.ALL PODCAST, SOCIAL MEDIA, & MERCHANDISE LINKS: linktr.ee/MainEventMarksCHECK OUT OUR MERCHANDISE: MainEventMarks.redbubble.com & bonfire.com/store/maineventmarksGET FUELED WITH SHOCKED ENERGY: https://shockedenergy.com/collections/all?sca_ref=1814354.mOXH7RrwKh&sca_source=MainEventMarks (promo code: MainEvent for 10% off)GET AWESOME SPORTS T-SHIRTS: intheclutch.com/MAINEVENT (use code "MAINEVENT" for 10% off)ORDER FROM SWIFT LIFESTYLES: SwiftLifestyles.com, use PROMO CODE: MainEventMarks at checkout for 15% offLISTEN EVERY WEDNESDAY AT 9PM EST: tikilive.com/channel/BURNS

AEW Dynamite 5/18/22 full show review, results, highlights, and livestream post show with JDfromNY. AEW has a major problem that I have kind of ignored, and defend them on for a while but it can not happen anymore. Adam Cole vs Jeff Hardy were in the Main event for the Owen Hart Cup Semi-Final match, and the match was given 4 minutes of TV time due to a bloated show. That is inexcusable. Either Tony Khan, and AEW format their shows better OR TNT gives AEW a 5 minute over run. Also, John Morrison makes his AEW debut, and Wardlow laughs off MJF's 10 lashes before their match at Double Or Nothing. AEW Dynamite May 18th, 2022:

Sasha Banks, and Naomi walked OUT of WWE during Monday Night Raw last night, and the REAL reason has now been revealed, and it's every bit as ridiculous as we thought it was last night. As previously reported, the planned main event was a Six-Pack Challenge match featuring Sasha Banks vs. Naomi vs. Asuka vs. Becky Lynch vs. Doudrop vs. Nikki A.S.H. and the winner would have become the number 1 contender for the Raw Women's Championship. Sasha Banks, and Naomi walked out of Monday Night Raw, and the main event was changed to Becky Lynch vs Asuka instead.
