The No Spots Podcast Season 2 Ep. 81: Time to Clash Once Again!
We are coming up upon the next PPV offering from the WWE: Clash of the Champions "Gold Rush."  Of course, we're going to preview this show and give our predictions and preliminary grades for the one night of the year where EVERY champion is being defended (and in this case, it's true).   After our Clash preview, we'll give you our takeaways from this week in wrestling and one of the consensus opinions will be that Raw was NOT good!  We'll also talk about another solid Impact, a super-sized edition of Dark, a special Late Night Dynamite, as well as the regular Wednesday Dynamite, NXT, and whether Smackdown was able to keep people interested in the PPV. But before we begin the podcast, we pay tribute to the legendary Hall of Famer Road Warrior Animal, who sadly passed away on September 23 at the age of 60.  We talk about our fond memories of the Road Warriors tag team as they have been reunited in the afterlife.  #RIPAnimal #OhWhatARush Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NoSpotsPod Follow us on Twitter: @TruNoSpotsPod Leave us questions/comments here: https://anchor.fm/no-spots-podcast/message
