What does this mean for the other major players in the WWE main event picture? Changes to WWE Smackdown are also discussed as a new voice for the brand is hired just in time for the big move to the USA Network. Changes at TNA are also on the horizon as the company is on the verge of also crowning a new World Champion to coincide with their move to PopTV.

The PWA Show: Choosing Sides…..

EPISODE 46

Episode 46 finds Chad & Keila examining the confusing state of WWE storylines leading into this Sunday’s TLC PPV. Why are The Wyatt Family, a heel faction, picking a fight with The League of Nations, another heel stable? Why is the babyface WWE Divas Champion, Charlotte, suddenly displaying heelish tactics in her feud against Paige who had made this rivalry very personal with some of her previous comments? Why do The New Day continue to be playful, lovable, entertaining babyfaces even though they are heels? Pick a side people! It’s no wonder ratings for RAW are the lowest since the mid-90s era of cartoonish gimmicks which saw clowns, plumbers, and garbage men compete inside a WWE ring. The PWA Mailbag is once again opened and some listener mail is read. These questions cover several interesting topics including forgotten and under appreciated factions, which wrestling personality would make a great podcast host, and what old school booking tools have been eliminated from the arsenal of today’s wrestling presentations.
