Marrero and Jarrett discussed the emotional tribute “Remembering Pulse Nightclub, 1 Year Later,” held at The Impact Zone last week.

Host Ryan Rider asked Jeff Jarrett to talk about the working agreements and talent exchanges with Lucha Libre AAA, Pro Wrestling NOAH, and other promotions. Jarrett also provided an update on GFW Champion Alberto El Patron, indefinitely suspended following domestic abuse allegations and the legal issue over ownership of the “Broken Hardy’s” intellectual property.

In the second half of the show, Ryan looked back at WWE’s Great Balls of Fire featuring Brock Lesnar vs Samoa Joe, the release of Austin Aries, and Dixie Carter appearing on the WWE Network.
