Josh and Jarret are here to discuss RAW, NXT, Dynamite, IMPACT, and Smackdown for the week of May 3rd. Eva Marie returned to RAW; vignette style. Dynamite had a couple of great promos, and then they discuss Blood and Guts. Kenny Omega – is he disrespecting the IMPACT World Title? Is Miro destined to become TNT Champion? Over on NXT, they crowned new Women’s Tag Team Champions – and now The Way hold multiple titles! The main event scene is still killing it over on Smackdown, week-in and week-out. The Bloodline is here, and Jarret couldn’t be happier.
