WWE was in an interesting time period in June 2005, as the parameters of the original brand extension were being stretched beyond the “normal” sanctions we became used to in 2002. On this year, it was the first time WWE held a draft that spanned one month, so both the WWE Champion and World Heavyweight Champion were defending their respective titles on the same show for the first time on a brand-exclusive pay-per-view.
A classic Hell in a Cell match, a second classic between two Hall of Famers, an appearance from The Godfather in 2005, and much more. But first, we talk about the latest WWE releases. They include:
• Braun Strowman
