X-Pac opens today’s show speaking about the main event match from RAW between Braun Strowman and Big Show. He says that the first match between these two men was terrific, so it didn’t surprise him that they delivered again. The match would have been more than fine without the big spot at the end, but having the ring collapse really put an exclamation point on this match in his opinion.
He comments on the possibility of ever seeing Shane McMahon compete in a mixed martial arts promotion such as UFC. He says that Shane works out like a mad man and he can take a real beating. He can recall really laying some offence into McMahon when they worked together back in the day, and Shane never hesitated to come back for more. If Shane’s opponent is comparable in age and skill-set, it wouldn’t surprise X-Pac to see him compete in an MMA bout.
X-Pac was sad to hear that The Revival’s Dash Wilder broke his jaw at a live event over the weekend. He’s going to be out for a while as he tends to the injury. X-Pac says that’s a terrible injury because you can’t really eat, and this results in a significant loss of weight. He hopes Wilder recovers soon so we can see him back in action on RAW.
X-Pac mentions that The Rock’s new movie, The Fate of the Furious. broke records with its opening at the box office this past weekend. He believes the entire ‘feud’ between The Rock and Vin Diesel was a wrestling angle which was set up to promote the movie. He says he’s so sure that this was an angle, that he’d nearly bet his life on it. In any event, the angle obviously worked.
