PWW -- 039 RIP Nikolai Volkoff & Brian Christopher

hosted by Tony Schiavone and Beau Le Blanc

PWW: Pro Wrestling Wednesday
August 01, 2018 - 2:18 pm

After a lovely beach vacation Beau Le Blanc returned to the 92-9 The Game Podcast Studio for another exciting edition of Pro-Wrestling Wednesday! Tony and Beau started off with the biggest, yet most depressing story in Pro-Wrestling, the passing of the legendary Nikolai Volkoff and former WWF Tag Team Champion and son of Jerry Lawler, Brian Christopher. 

They then moved on to the WWE's big announcement about its upcoming "Revolution" event which will be the first all-female card ever put on by Vince McMahon's company. Beau speculated that this may be the perfect time to unveil Women's Tag Team Championships and Tony gave an old-school opinion on having heels and faces hanging out on the ramp in unison for the big announcement. 

As usual they broke down this week's editions of Raw and Smackdown. After they both were emphatic on the last episode that we wouldn't see Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns at SummerSlam, they were of course proven wrong. Beau contends that Lesnar's attack on Paul Heyman was meant to further enhance his heel credentials whilst Tony fantasy-booked a Roman/Heyman alliance. On the Smackdown side, both hosts praised the tremendous segment with Randy Orton stripping all the gimmicks off of Jeff Hardy and looked forward to the Miz facing Daniel Bryan at SummerSlam in 3 weeks. All this, and more, on this week's episode of PWW!
