I enjoy the Tuesday Livecast more than the other daily Livecasts primarily because of the timeliness of the subject matter. The hosts do a great job covering multiple subjects. Wade and Jason have a great rapport that comes through in their conversations. This week’s show focused a lot on how to fix the current product with the NFL season looming and dealing with Night of Champions booking. The knowledge level of the hosts is second to none. If you are interested in a weekly show that helps to catch the listener up on current events in professional wrestling, this show is for you.
