On this Wrestling 2 the MAX episode, Sean Garmer (@W2MSean) Gary Vaughan (@W2mgary) and Paul Leazar (@hailtothechimp7) talk everything going on in the world of wrestling. It’s a long night of highs and lows, so let’s dive in!
First up, they cover some wrestling news in Quick Hits. New Japan Pro-Wrestling released a ton of information during their NJPW Power Struggle show. Big stuff such as: Chris Jericho facing Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12. The World Tag League blocks, and their return to the United States in 2018. Plus, tons of other topics from WWE and Impact Wrestling possibly paying people to go to their TV tapings.
Then, Sean and Paul review New Japan’s Power Struggle show. Terrific wrestling, great debuts, and frankly, some stuff we wish didn’t happen are all covered as we talk about the last big show from New Japan for the year.
Then, Gary and Paul review Impact Wrestling’s Bound for Glory. We give our thoughts on what honestly might be one of the worst wrestling shows we’ve seen all year.
Finally, Gary and Paul review the latest episode of Ring of Honor television. War Machine gets a shot at the World Tag Team Titles held by the Motor City Machine Guns. Plus, Cody defends the World Title once again.

Sean studied Journalism at the University of North Texas. He loves pro-wrestling so much that he even trained to be a wrestler at the age of 17. Though he eventually had to quit wrestling to go to college, he still returned to do play-by-play commentary, help write storylines, and most of all, to watch matches. Sean started his love of pro-wrestling at the age of five after watching a Hulk Hogan match. Due to his family hating sports-entertainment, there were many years he missed. However, he returned full-time to being a fan in the late 1990’s. Since then, Sean has gone on to write for various wrestling websites in a number of capacities, but he discovered his true passion, Podcasting, four years ago when he and Gary started the Wrestling 2 the MAX Podcast.
Gary is a native North Texan with a Bachelor’s degree from the University of North Texas. His time in college actually rekindled his love of pro wrestling he had lost somewhere along the way. Gary’s enjoyment of the sport began around 1996. As a fan, he has become a student of the wrestling business and gains knowledge through many platforms. WCW is dear to his heart because of it being his introduction to the scene. Now, Gary is a proud podcast host, as well as a writer for wrestling columns.
Paul has a history degree from the University of North Texas, but right now works at a Comic Book store. He was born an’ raised in the great state of Texas, and began his love affair with pro wrestling at the tender age of five after watching WWF’s Summerslam 1993 pay-per-view. The relationship turned serious with the growth of independent wrestling and the internet in the early 2000’s, which has seen the love affair turn into a full blown addiction that led him to write about it for various websites, host his own podcast “The Wrestling Time Machine” and co-host the Wrestling 2 The MAX podcast.
