Chris Jericho announced on RAW that he would face the mysterious ballroom dancer Fandango at WrestleMania 29 after Jericho and Fandango had an altercation earlier in the show. Jericho attacked Fandango before he was scheduled to debut (again) which then led to Fandango attacked Jericho after his match with Dolph Ziggler. The name-obsessed dancer once again showed a viscous side and demonstrated his unique repertoire and impressive top-rope leg drop.

Elsewhere, we finally got confirmation that The Big Show will team with Randy Orton and Sheamus to take on The Shield. We already expected this, but with it confirmed it can finally be added to the expanding card. The Shield got beat down on RAW courtesy of this new-formed trio but not before they exacted a beat down of their own on The Great Khali. 

WrestleMania 29 is just 12 days away. There are two SmackDown shows and one RAW show left before the big one. 

WrestleTalk TV debuting tonight; features Chris Jericho.

Wrestling chat show WrestleTalk TV is debuting tonight in the UK on Challenge at 11pm; straight after TNA’s Impact Wrestling broadcast.

WrestleTalk TV is hosted by Joel Ross and the Daily Star’s Patrick Lennon and features the latest wrestling news, previews and feature interviews with some of wrestling’s biggest stars.

Joel Ross told me that ‘WrestleTalk TV started out as a bit of a laugh online after doing an audio version of the show since 2004 on iTunes’. The first episode of WrestleTalk TV debuted on YouTube 11 months ago and currently (as of 26/08/12) has garnered 5,571 views.

Check out Episode 1 of WrestleTalk TV below:

Y2J himself Chris Jericho is the guest on the Challenge debut episode, while former guests include CM Punk’s buddy Colt Cabana, Hardcore Legend Mick Foley, Ring Of Honor legend Nigel McGuinness and current Impact Wrestling star Douglas Williams.

Ross said: ‘we had some really decent feedback and pitched it to many European TV channels. The first channel to pick it up was Challenge in the UK as wrestling is their highest rated show.’

Speaking on the debut and the future for WrestleTalk TV, Ross told me ‘it goes out every other Sunday night and hopefully in a few months we can expand it to weekly. Also, we have plans to have special “live” shows before huge events. Myself and the company have the attitude of “let’s just see where it goes”.

‘Both WWE and TNA have been very supportive over the past few months and it’s exciting to integrate British wrestling into the show.’

As of 26/08/12, WrestleTalkTV has over 364,000 views on it’s YouTube page, which bodes well for the television debut.

Joel Ross is one half of the radio duet JK and Joel and Patrick Lennon is the Fightin’ Talk editor at The Daily Star.
