Everything was rolling until Dr Julian story ground it to a halt. All the hopefuls reacting to the Austin 3:16 promo, "Flex" working on his skills and  using his mom's "it doesn't matter was gold

Flex Kavana time!  That was always a fun section of Dwayne's life: even if it was brief.  Great seeing Brian "Too Sexy" Christopher as well and seeing Dwayne learn the art of working the mic.  This episode really highlighted the spot-on casting of Uli Katukefu because he not only looks similar, but just as the same kind of energy on camera that really captures as Young Dwayne.

Everyone's reactions to the Austin 3:16 promo were great.  Still interesting that it almost didn't happen had certain behind the scenes drama not came about (from what I remember/heard, Triple H was initially slated to win King of the Ring that year, but he got punished for breaking character, so they had Steve win it instead.)

Liked seeing the clips of the real wresters and their promos.  The likes of Dusty Rhodes and especially Ric Flair knew how to work an audience!

Will wait till the next episode to see how this stuff with Julian plays out.
