As The Heel Turns – episode 7
A special later-in-the-week edition of As The Heel Turns, which means minimal RAW talk this time around. If that’s not reason enough to celebrate, the crew talks Divas, Tough Enough, wrestling finishers, and a smattering of other issues. Always tackling the difficult questions!

Episode 7 breakdown
The boys finally getting around to talking about the Divas division. What’s working, what’s not working, how to fix things, and how to talk about these talented female performers with respect and class. We contemplate what the NXT division could bring to the main roster and look back on what made wrestlers like Trish Stratus and Lita so compelling. And we broach the always controversial topic of the superficial nature of professional wrestling.
Tough Enough returns! Connor gives us his review of the first episode and overall thoughts so far. Is Tanner Saraceno the one to beat?
We go off on a tangent about the relevance of wrestling finishing moves in today’s scene. Alex proposes a world where finishers don’t even exist while somehow referencing Jose Bautista, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, and Taylor Swift. We bring it back to Tough Enough by going over what happened to some of the previous winners of the reality show competition.
A smorgasbord of WWE-related topics: Dolph Ziggler’s potential departure, the WWE injury bug, the ongoing Adam Rose dilemma, Rusev withdrawal, the bilingual Owens/Cena confrontation, and…former Toronto Blue Jays all-star Ricky Romero?
