This is one of the biggest weeks for professional wrestling in years with many important “firsts” from the WWE’s launching of SmackDown on Fox, the start of All Elite Wrestling’s weekly program on TNT, and NXT’s counter with a loaded show on the USA Network.
This coincides with changes to our weekly schedule at POST Wrestling to provide the best coverage we can for the new fall lineup. Beginning this week, Wai Ting and I are launching a new free show on Wednesday nights, which will cover AEW Dynamite and go over notes from this week’s NXT episode. Meanwhile, Braden Herrington and Davie Portman will continue to produce their weekly upNXT show with a big review of NXT each week.
Another change is to the Café Hangout on Thursdays at 3 pm Eastern with Wai Ting and I. Prior to this week, the live component was restricted to Double Double, Iced Capp, and Espresso members of the POST Wrestling Café. This week, ALL members of the Café can tune in each week at 3 pm to watch the show and call into the program with their questions. Because of the interactive nature of this show, we wanted to open it up to all Café members and this is a permanent change for the weekly Hangout.
On Fridays, we will be making Rewind-A-SmackDown a Café exclusive show to offset the elimination of The Double Shot. We greatly value all our listeners and made this decision after careful debate regarding which shows would be free (Rewind-A-Raw, Wednesday’s AEW review, the audio version of the Café Hangout, and our monthly pay-per-view reviews) and which would be Café exclusives. While we understand those that will not agree with this decision, we always strive to provide as much free content while also providing value for those that help us with the ability to dedicate our full-time positions to this site. It is because of the Café supporters that we can produce a wide variety of shows on a weekly basis at a certain level of quality we hold ourselves to. We welcome any and all positive/constructive feedback.
Finally, this weekend is a loaded one following SmackDown’s debut with a UFC 243 pay-per-view and the WWE’s Hell in a Cell card. I will be joined by Phil Chertok on Saturday for the UFC 243 POST Show and Wai & I will be back later that night for the Hell in a Cell POST Show. The live streams of the PPV POST Shows will still be accessible at the Double Double, Iced Capp & Espresso levels of the Café.
