Becky Lynch is pregnant! We found out on Monday night’s edition of Raw that “The Man” is going to become “The Mom”! Our congratulations to both Lynch and Seth Rollins on the exciting announcement.
While Lynch is preparing for motherhood, WWE decided to give Asuka the Raw Women’s Championship, as the Money in the Bank briefcase she won on Sunday night was actually the championship itself. The segment at the beginning of Raw was heartwarming.
From there, we discuss Mike Tyson’s involvement with All Elite Wrestling. While he’s not headlining a main event pay-per-view as a special guest enforcer, he’ll be awarding the TNT Championship to either Cody Rhodes or Lance Archer at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view on Saturday, May 23. But is that all he’ll be doing? Nick and Vaughn disagree as to how AEW should utilize Tyson, and what might come of his involvement with this angle. Is it just a one-off? Will it turn into something more? Should it turn into something more?
May 14 is the 25-year-anniversary of the very first In Your House pay-per-view. And, while we don’t live commentate the entire event, we begin watching Bret Hart vs. Jerry Lawler, the WWF awarding a family from Nevada a house in Orlando (with full audio), and the main event of Diesel defending the WWF Championship against Sid to round out the episode.
