On this week’s edition of The Rack, host Lindsey Ward and her producer Sir Rockin gave their opinions on all the big stories of the week in Pro Wrestling! If you missed the show, here are your highlights:
This evening, we had TWO very special interviews tonight, completely free to our listeners! Our first interview was with Senior Developer for WWE 13, Bryan Williams, who gave all the latest details on the upcoming release of WWE 13, which comes out this Tuesday. In a nearly 40 minute interview, he discussed why this edition was centered around the Attitude Era, how long it takes to produce a game like this and when it was started, what his favorite move on the game was, using wrestlers like Sanjay Dutt and Jay Lethal as motion capture actors, the major difference between last year and this year’s game, the return of the “Big Blue” cage, if he and the designers freaked out when Taker shaved his head, what he’d like to see done in future editions, if there was a “Madden Curse” for WWE cover selections, the Downloadable content sets, who his favorite character to play as, and so more!
You can follow Brian personally through Twitter (@TruBWill) or though the official WWE Games Twitter page (@WWEGames) for all the latest WWE 13 gaming information, including DLC release dates and information. Also, make sure to keep an eye out at your local gaming retailer this Tuesday for the official release of WWE 13 for all major gaming consols!
Our second interview was with NWA Heavyweight Champion “Scrap Iron” Adam Pearce. In a nearly 25 minute interview he talked about the ‘Seven Levels of Hate’finishing up this weekend with a steel cage match against Colt Cabana in Melbourne, Why Australia was the destination for his final match, his lengthy feud with Colt Cabana, what his plans are in Australia aside from the last Stage of Hate, what his favorite level has been so far, the lack of lengthy feuds in wrestling today, what it means to him to hold the prestigious NWA World Heavyweight Title and be linked with guys like Harley Race and Ric Flair, if the NWA Title has lost some of his luster, the stipulation if he doesn’t win the ‘Seven Levels’ he’ll leave the NWA and much more.

As with every week, The Rack is your weekly home for immediate Impact Wrestling recaps and commentary. We talked about it being “Championship Thursday”, the new announce team… for hour one, the Championship contender decision to face Hardy in the main event, Jeff Hardy’s dual belts on display and eerie voice-over segment, Bully and Devon verbally squaring off and leading to a challenge next week, RVD defending the X Division title and was followed with a Matt Morgan attack, the WTTCOTW (they are still champions in our hearts here) and unleashed an EPIC promo upon the Tag Team Champions and started a petition for their rematch, the major production FAIL, an Aces& 8’s beatdown of a TNA Superstar and other craziness!
We also had a brief recap of Monday Night RAW, an explanation about what why she won’t be watching ‘Hell in a Cell’, a Lindsey Rant about the illogical nature that AJ Lee’s resignation showcased, plus Rack Staples: Tweet of the Week, Spoiler-free Smackdown Preview, Weekly Vent, and the question of the night: “What will be the moment to remember from the Hell in a Cell main event this Sunday?” Check it all out on this week’s edition of The Rack, brought to you partially by PWMania.com and TweakedAudio.com!
