•The April 30, 2011 episode features a discussion with Bruce Mitchell: Is the changing mass media landscape opening doors for an emergence of nationally distributed indy groups with sustainable profits and wrestler pay?

•The May 1, 2011 episode features a rant on this week’s Smackdown, a show with enough violations of the basic fundamentals of what has always worked at drawing money in pro wrestling that you have to wonder if SD lead writer Michael Hayes has forgotten what he once did to draw money during his peak years. The announcing is once again the low point of this show, with the spineless Josh Mathews and the inexplicable mindless randomness of Booker T’s stands and statement.

•The May 2, 2011 episode features a look at Rock’s Birthday Celebration and the entire episode of Raw which also included a John Cena vs. The Miz rematch, Mason Ryan standing up to Kane and Big Show, Kharma debuting with a surprise target, and more.
