E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness Recap w/ Bobby Fish – Tommaso Ciampa’s Injury, Teaming with O’Reilly, Forming Undisputed Era, More!
Edge and Christian open today’s show by discussing the passing of King Kong Bundy. Edge says he can still remember Bundy facing Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 2, and his mother trying to tell him that Hogan was okay after Bundy beat him down. When he saw Bundy debut he couldn’t believe his eyes because he didn’t know a person could get that big.
Edge points out that Samoa Joe finally won a main roster Title this past week. Edge thought that was great, noting that Joe is very deserving of that Title. Christian says he still thinks Joe can be a credible threat to Brock Lesnar, and after being on the main roster for a couple of years now, this might be the first step in building Joe up for a big run.
Edge says he really enjoyed the recent NXT match between Drew Gulak and Matt Riddle. He says that Gulak has always impressed him, and Riddle is now finding a real groove in NXT. Christian adds that Riddle has that unmistakable trait, similar to someone like Jeff Hardy, that makes fans gravitate to him.
Edge and Christian congratulate Torrie Wilson on her WWE Hall of Fame induction. They note that she brought a lot of skills to the table in a time when women weren’t booked very well in WWE. Edge says that Molly Holly is another very deserving woman who should be inducted at some point, because she was a tremendous worker and is a great person.
