WWE SummerSlam preview with Sports Illustrated's Justin Barrasso - 8/16/18

On Thursday's podcast, Sports Illustrated pro wrestling insider Justin Barrasso joined me to preview WWE SummerSlam, which is this Sunday night in Brooklyn (17:50). We opened the show with some thoughts on the late Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart, and Justin discussed his experience in Japan earlier in the week, covering New Japan Pro Wrestling's G1 Climax tournament. To which, I asked the question: Is the combination of "New Japan Pro Wrestling" and "Ring of Honor" a real threat to the WWE? Also, we shared some thoughts on AJ Styles, Smackdown moving to Friday nights on FOX, All In, CM Punk, and more.
