67: Meet Big Dave

The 'boys may be down Esai as he is off in Parts Unknown this week, but don't worry y'all, because Big Dave Bautista, aka Batista, is back baby (oh, and so is Rey Mysterio)!

In celebration of the reuniting of Evolution, Matt and Zack teach Derek about the history of the group and what makes them so significant. Zack recaps the amazing PROGRESS Chapter 76: Hello, Wembley! show. The 'boys feel bitter about WWE focus and lack-thereof on two different upcoming shows. And of course, they break down the week in wrestling.

Including: Yet another largely forgettable episode of Raw, with Ronda Rousey's garbage promo that belongs in the toilet, Drew McIntyre's Claymore murder of Braun Strowman, and not much else. The very good 100th episode of SmackDown, with the reunion of Evolution (even though they were never originally on SmackDown), Batista calling out HHH, The Bar beating The New Day for the tag titles, and Rey Mysterio's full-time return to the WWE and his match against Shinsuke Nakamura. Yet another good episode of 205 Live we all largely forgot to watch. The great co-main events of NXT, with Bobby Fish's return to save The Undisputed Era, and Nikki Cross and Bianca Belair interrupted by a fairly peeved Aleister Black. The debut of NXT UK and our initial impressions of this new show. Finally, this week's heartbreaking episode of The Mae Young Classic, with the explosion of Tegan Nox's knee.
