Major results from the multiple pro wrestling shows last week in the Chicago area where NXT stole the spotlight in a big way and a great new podcast for veteran fans of the pro mat game are among our major topics this week In This Corner.

After finally edging AEW in a Wednesday night ratings battle, NXT offered a spectacular War Games Takeover show that included a dramatic finish to the eight-man double-ring event when Tomasso Ciampa hauled Adam Cole onto his back at the top of the cage and dropped himself and his opponent with the Kryptonite Krunch to the ring below through a table to earn a pinfall victory and conclude a bout that was filled with spectacular spots and hard-hitting, well-timed action. An earlier women’s War Games match was also very solidly worked and had plenty of its own fireworks with Candace LaRae landing a Super Reverse Frankensteiner off the top for a two-count at one point and Io Shirai doing a moonsault off the top onto Belair and LeRae.
