This week on W2M, we headline with a WWE Survivor Series 2015 Preview along with all the other stuff we usually cover on the podcast.
We start things off with the news in Quick Hits by discussing WWE signing La Sombra of CMLL and NJPW fame and the possibility of Austin Aries coming to NXT. There’s also the TV deals signed by ROH and TNA. Are these a step up or a step down from what they had previously? Is MVP right in his criticism of TNA? Are you, the fan, going to be able to find these channels on your television? We have all that for you, plus we give our thoughts on the greatness of the late Nick Bockwinkel and the newest inductees into the Texas bound Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame as well.
We move on to answer our questions about WWE RAW and we also reflect on this week’s NXT episode too.
We round out the WWE discussion by doing our WWE Survivor Series 2015 Preview, where we give our thoughts and predictions on each of the matches, plus we address the big rumor that Dean Ambrose could walk out WWE Champion on Sunday.
We finish things out by looking at this week’s ROH TV and TNA Impact Wrestling, which was focused on the continuing World Title Series. We also have our W2M Power Rankings as well.

Sean Garmer: studied Journalism at the University of North Texas. Sean 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, two years ago when he and Gary started the Wrestling 2 the MAX Podcast.
Gary Vaughan: 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 Leazar: is a recent college graduate from the University of North Texas with an immense amount of time on his hands because nobody wants to hire the idiot with the History degree. 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 sporadically for various websites, and co-host the Wrestling 2 The Max podcast.
