Jerome and Brian kick off Superman month by discussing one of the most controversial Superman films of all-time. Richard Donner was fired off the project, and the Christopher Reeve version of this franchise would never be the same. This film is an amalgamation of two different visions, yet it's much more cohesive than you might think. Is it cohesive enough to become the second Superman movie put into the pantheon?

Chris, Rich, and Dylan have a lot of heavy topics this week. The trio talk about the biggest story going on in pro wrestling this week which is the ties of WWE with Saudi Arabia and how social responsibility should trickle down into indie wrestling.
