Rabblecast Ep. 386 - CM Punk Joins UFC, Impact Wrestling Update

By now everyone has talked about, reported on, and formed their own opinion on the whole CM Punk/WWE story. Some think WWE screwed up and ignored one of their best talents. Others feel betrayed by CM Punk for leaving at the height of his popularity. Then, there are those that still believe that this is all a big elaborate story being told by the WWE and CM Punk will make a triumphant return.

All of this gets turned upside down with the announcement of CM Punk signing with the UFC! Does he have what it takes to battle in the Octagon? Opinions and theories are already running rampant. But we will have to wait and see when CM Punk debuts in the UFC in 2015.

Where has the show gone? Will it be on iTunes? Why won't you call me?

Ok, I made up that last one. Hello Rabblecast listeners, Hernandez here. If you're reading this before listening to this episode/announcement, realize it is not an actual episode. I wanted to take some time and address why there was no show last week and why the show has been "suspended".

We are working to get things straightened out before going forward with anymore episodes. We are taking this very seriously and hope to have things back on track very soon.

We want to thank our listeners for their support during all of this and we will update everyone soon. Listen to our State of The Rabble Address for more details.

Rabblecast Ep. 381 - TNA Bound For Glory Card Rundown,  WWE Network Renewals

One of the most important PPV's in TNA history is almost upon us in the form of, Bound for Glory 2014! The guys do a rundown of the card and give their thoughts on what seems to be an unexpected show roster. Keep in mind this is a TNA/Wrestle-1 joint show and talent from Wrestle-1 will also be showcased on the PPV. Will this be mark in the "Win" column for TNA? Or will they miss the mark on one of their most ambitious shows to date?

WWE Network subscribers, be warned, if you have let your subscription lapse. WWE is pulling out all the stops to try and get you to renew. Even to the point of hyping a PPV that doesn't have any matches listed for it yet. Has the WWE Network lived up to the fans expectations? Will WWE have good news when it comes time to report their quarterly results?
