Powell’s POV: Join me for live coverage as the show airs at 7CT/8ET on AXS TV. It is slotted for four-and-a-half hours on AXS. The previous show ran long so set your DVR’s accordingly if you’re not watching live. AXS will also broadcast a “Bullet Club Is Fine” special with Cody and the Young Bucks hosting a marathon of NJPW on AXS television shows starting this morning at 11CT/12ET and running up to the live broadcast. Jim Ross and Josh Barnett will be on the call for the live show. Dot Net Members will hear my audio review of the event.
