Anthony Missionary Thomas and Joey Numbas open up Wrestling Soup talking about plastic surgery in WWE women and the fickle nature of memory as they get older.
They delve into discussing equality and disparities in pay after a Forbes article on the highest paid WWE talent prompts outrage among social media criticizing the gap between the highest paid male and female wrestlers. They discuss how and why the disparity exists and why they don’t agree with the feminist viewpoint on this nomenclature.
Joe and Mish then proceed to examine why they think match rating systems are impossibly subjective, also why “creative’s job is to be creative” and where the responsibility tends to fall when having something for a wrestler ends up failing the company and the employee.
Mish covers the special guests advertised for Raw 25, who’s missing, and who else could have been in their place.
Mish goes on to admit to watching an episode of Total Divas and finding an episode with actual human emotion on it instead of the usual “reality television” antics and tropes that are relied upon. He goes on to describe why this past weeks episode may be one of the very best that WWE and E! have produced in quite some time.
Joe and Mish then continue the show making predictions on the surprise entrants to fill the remaining slots for the upcoming Women’s Royal Rumble. With so many slots still left open past the active WWE Women’s roster, they discuss the variables on which some people may be called to return for the big event.
