ROH State of the Art Texas and NXT Takeover Chicago Reviews (Episode 141)
Running Wild Podcast’s Rich and Runz bring you another episode of wrestling discussion, sharing their thoughts on all the latest in the world of professional wrestling.
On this special Father’s Day/Rich’s birthday episode of Running Wild Podcast, Rich and Runz share their thoughts on ROH State of the Art San Antonio and Dallas shows, as well as NXT Takeover and share their predictions on Money in the Bank.
The two go in-depth on every match from the set of Ring of Honor shows this weekend and discuss wrestlers who stepped up because of injuries and travel issues, including Matt Taven, Vinny Marseglia, TK O’Ryan, Jonathan Gresham and more. They discuss the possibilities for Punishment Martinez’s ROH TV title run and what went right this weekend. Rich gets overly excited about CMLL talent in ROH, as usual.
They also discuss the horrible actions of Tommaso Ciampa and where the fued may go from there before giving predictions for Money in the Bank and how the company moves forward from here heading into Summerslam at the Barclay’s Center this summer.
