Big Bad Harmon has the week off so Jonny goes at it solo this week. He's hyping local shows, giving shout outs to friends of the podcast and giving his thoughts on the WWE Extreme Rules PPV and the after math that took place as we begin the descent into SummerSlam.
What a weekend! Harmon and Jonny recap their wild weekend of wrestling which consisted of Let's Wrestle, Wrestlers' Lab and WWE. The guys discuss the trip to Orono to do commentary fo Let's Wrestle and they break down the card while their at it. Jonny shares how he took his son to experience his first live WWE house show in Augusta. Pro wrestling is a amazing style of performance art and the guys experienced a wonderful amount of it.
We cap off our Wrestlers' Laboratory Labnormal Series with the champ! The Wrestlers's Lab champion The Hitman for Hire Mr. Grim comes on the show. Thankfully no one ended up in a body bag. Instead, we talked about his childhood, gowing up playing football and wrestling. Also, transitioning into pro wrestling and where he went to train to learn the business. And finally he has some choice words for Joey Janella, his Lanbormal opponent on July 8th. Joey Janella might be a Bad Bad Boy but Mr. Grimmis a Bad Bad Man. A Hitman. This championship match is going to be insane!

Labnormal is almost here so we bring in Chris and Mike, the guys behind Wrestlers' Laboratory, to talk shop. We chat about the creation of the Lab, how they got into wrestling, the stacked lineup for Labnormal and the trials and tribulations of preparing for their first ever stand alone show. They're two hard working guys trying to do something positive in the wrestling business and so far they are heading in the right direction. Experimental pro wrestling at its best.

This week, Jonny and Harmon do something they haven't in a long while. Talk WWE. They touch on results from NXT Takeover and Money in the Bank. They give their thoughts on some superstars and some things going on in the current programming such as Ronda Rousey rapid progression, Rusev getting a push finally, Seth Rollins losing the IC belt, Braun being Braun and the release of Big Cass. They also discuss the unfortunate passing of Big Van Vader and share some heartfelt memories of the mastadon who will go down as one of the great big men of all time.
As we get closer to July 8th, we continue our Wrestler's Labratory: Labnormal Series with The Adrenaline Addict himself Chris "The Hype" Henry. He's an innovative move specialist who has his eyes on the Nucleus Championship but he's gotta throw 18 other competitors over the top rope to get it. The Nucleus 19 is going to be crazy with a pool of different sizes, styles and genders. It might just take an adrenaline addict to become the new Nucleus Champion.
