Kris & David are back with another Patronr-requested episode of BTS this week, as we discuss the week that was June 15-21, 2005.

  • We start off with Ring of Honor, where the "Summer of Punk" began with CM Punk shockingly winning the ROH World Heavyweight Title from Austin Aries in what was thought to be his last match before reporting to WWE developmental. Instead, it was the beginning of one of the biggest angles in ROH history. We also go over the rest of the show from Morristown, New Jersey, which also featured the returns of Christopher Daniels, A.J. Styles, & Petey Williams for the first time since TNA pulled their talent a year earlier, and lots more.
  • Speaking of TNA, we then head over there to talk about Slammiversary, plus drama regarding Dusty Rhodes & Jeff Jarrett, not to mention the company negotiating potential TV deals with networks like WGN. As usual, this was quite the entertaining TNA section.
  • Next, we go International, talking a busy week in Japan, especially New Japan, as the Best of the Super Juniors tour came to an end, plus Intocable being seriously injured at an AAA show in Mexico, and a major show at Arena Mexico which saw someone lose their hair after a big multi-man cage match.
  • We go back to the U.S. for a packed indie section, with lots of shows in the Philly area and a major scare at an AWS show in Southern California, plus Jim Cornette returns to Ohio Valley Wrestling from his WWE-imposed suspension…but not for long.
  • We then close with the WWE for a wild week of television featuring Edge & Lita's wedding on Monday Night Raw and so much more wackiness, including THE ANGELIC DIABLO and Melina making Heidenreich sad.

2000s shows are always packed, and this one is no different, so listen now and enjoy!!!!
