As The Heel Turns – episode 17

As the school year comes to a close, the As The Heel Turns Crew of “Gorgeous” Connor Dorion, Dario “Pop” Passarelli, and “Big Al” Alexander K Lee go for one last (?) round of Raw talk, WWE predictions, Lucha Underground appreciation, and a smorgasbord of other topics.

Remember: Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end…

Episode 17 breakdown

Segment 1:
How has the landscape of wrestling changed over the last year? Is it somehow less popular and yet more mainstream at the same time? And week three of Alex’s life without Monday Night Raw.

Segment 2:
Connor and Pop shelve the Lucha Underground conversation so they can highlight some of the positives of Raw. Topics of the day include Cesaro, Alberto Del Rio, kip-ups/nip-ups/hip-ups, Dr. Who, Roman Reigns, the Royal Rumble, and the continued brilliance of The New Day.

All that plus Pop ‘ships Paige/Seth Rollins.

Segment 3:
Who could have their first WWE World Championship reign in 2016? Roman? Bray Wyatt? Tyler Breeze?!?

Why can’t a member of The New Day win the big belt?

Segment 4:
The Lucha Underground discussion starts with Big Al confessing his disdain for Mini wrestling, which is only made worse by Pop bringing up Hornswoggle. Then we delve into the unique appeal of Mil Muertes and heap praise on the triple threat encounter between Fenix, Drago, and Pentagon Jr. The upstart promotion’s unique blend of high flying, traditional North American style wrestling, and innovative filming techniques continue to impress.

Segment 5:
We reminisce.
