Welcome to another episode of Rudo Radio with Nick Bond and Marc Normandin (hey, that’s me!) This week, we take a look at RAW and SmackDown and admit that the blue brand might have done a “regular” episode better than Monday’s show, even if RAW got the big reveal right a week ago. We also talk up NXT’s changing landscape post-draft, and how it seems to be working just fine as a developmental space even with recent main roster poaching.
As a reminder, we changed the format so that we’re focusing heavily on a few of our favorite (and least favorite) things from both RAW and SmackDown, rather than going blow-by-blow with the entire episode, then opening things up to something of a topic of the week. We hope you like what we think is a tighter, more listenable format in this new era — excuse me, New Era — of WWE programming.
You can rate, review, and subscribe to us on iTunes — in fact, we’d really appreciate it. You can also leave us questions to answer in next week’s episode in the comments here at Cageside Seats, or by tweeting at either Nick Bond (@THEN1CKSTER) or myself (@Marc_Normandin).
