Another slow news week, thanks to the holiday weekend.  But Bill and Drew still, somehow, have things to talk about.  There’s a lot of buzz surrounding TNA and The Final Deletion, featuring Matt and Jeff Hardy.  Is there something to that style of storytelling?  Can this work on a regular basis, or did they just strike gold?

Plus, WWE Raw has dipped below 2.0 for the first time in about 20 years.  With the holiday, it’s to be expected we’ll see low ratings.  But was it avoidable?

And, Bill and Drew brainstorm some things that could be a good way to differentiate Raw and Smackdown after the brand split.

Thanks to @mvpmusto21 for his Favorite Thing in Wrestling (this week)!
