Happy New Year! We have a lot to do on this week's episode of "Jobbing Out," as our pal Brandon Linton joined us in studio while also simultaneously kicking the ever-loving-shit out of cancer. We discuss our trip to the Smackdown house show in Baltimore (the show was amazing) and then we transitioned to the sad news of "Mean Gene" Okerlund passing away. Do you remember what significant moment Mean Gene was part of in Baltimore? Is he the most significant sports interviewer in history? In Segment 2 (32:01), the guys shift the conversation to RAW & Smackdown this week. AJ has a new way for us to measure best matches-who had it this week? Should Rey Mysterio have been the #1 contender at Royal Rumble instead of AJ Styles? Are we definitely headed towards Cena/Bryan and Brock/Rollins at WrestleMania? Oh and also, how amazing were Cena and Becky this week? In Segment 3 (1:05:30), former WWE broadcaster Sean Mooney joins us to tell us his own stories about what Mean Gene meant to him and the business in general. It's a special conversation about a very special man. Then the guys discuss this week's big news regarding All Elite Wrestling (and the upcoming "Double Or Nothing" event), this weekend's Wrestle Kingdom event, what's happening on 205 Live and NXT and much more.
