As The Heel Turns – episode 19

It’s back to a two-man crew for the first ATHT of 2016, with Pop and Big Al talking pretty much non-stop about the latest happenings in the WWE!

Episode 19 breakdown

Somewhat of a sprawling episode this week, so instead of the usual segment-by-segment breakdown, here’s an overview of what was talked about:

  • our thoughts on the Royal Rumble and the result of our Rumble Pool (spoiler: Pop won)
  • why Triple H becoming world champion again was a reasonable booking decision
  • our excitement over A.J. Styles finally getting a run with the WWE…especially his Tom Cruise circa-“Mission: Impossible II” hair
  • when “looseness” in a match can be a good thing
  • the state of the aging and/or injury-riddled main event scene
  • speculation for Wrestlemania 32, including what to do with The Rock, Brock Lesnar, and the main event
  • the Rock’s appearance on RAW last Monday, in particular his masterful crowd management and controversial “shaming” segment with Lana
  • are Kevin Owens’ many gifts too subtle for him to be appreciated by the mainstream?
  • Smash Wrestling’s packed upcoming schedule sees them touring all around Ontario
  • most importantly, our thoughts and prayers go out to wrestling legend Bret Hart and his battle with prostate cancer
