Andy no-shows this week's episode, but that doesn't stop Blake & Erik from recapping Payback and the Friends Cup results. Raw is also a hot topic, for various reasons, one of which involved Hornswoggle in an afro! Nobody cares about TNA anymore, so the two Friends go over some Indy & ROH news and respond to some messages from the mailbag!
The second half features more fun discussion with some long-overdue topics. One features "Moonlight Wrestling", an old idea for a running segment featuring wrestlers who had day jobs. Names like IRS, Big Boss Man, Undertaker & the Goon are mentioned, among others, as they discuss the validity of men supplementing their income with some good old-fashioned fighting. This bleeds into a discussion (hardway) into Wrestling with Tropes, as Blake & Erik discuss some fun recurring gimmicks that have nothing to do with the men in the ring, but everything to do with the psychology they use.
