The Late Shift with Steven Bell - Recapping and Grading SmackDown 4/18/17 (Why You Should Be (Cautiously) Optimistic About Jinder Mahal, Women's Division Heats Up, Much More!)

Coming your way LIVE after both Raw and Smackdown, The Late Shift with Steven Bell provides an immediate, opinionated recap and occasionally controversial grade of the show. Your host, Steven Bell, is a Lords of Pain Columns Hall of Famer with over 15 years of experience as an LOP contributor as well as 30+ years of fandom and isn't at all shy about saying exactly what he thinks.

Divided into three segments, The Late Shift provides more than a simple recap and grade. We kick off with The HeatSeeker, where we take a look at one of the hottest topics in pro wrestling today, followed by a full, LIVE recap of and immediate reaction towards the just finished show and ultimately an overall grade, all within a tight 90 minute package. Most of all though, The Late Shift features unrepentant fandom. This isn't a show for "experts" or so-called "insiders" or anything of that sort. This is a show for those who aren't only "smart" but also intelligent pro wrestling fans. Provided BY a fan, FOR fans, this isn't a show where you'll be told what to think. It is, however, a show where you'll be encouraged to think for yourself, even if that means disagreeing with any and everything that your host has to say. Sometimes that's the best part.

Follow Steven on Twitter @StevenFnBell to interact LIVE or to simply express your opinions and start a dialogue about any or everything that he's got to say. You may be addressed on the air or even inspire an entire HeatSeeker segment. It's all about the fans' perspective here on The LateShift with Steven Bell.

The Late Shift with Steven Bell is presented live and uncensored and contains adult language and content. The views, opinions and verbiage expressed DO NOT reflect those of Lords of Pain, Lords of Pain Radio, BlogTalk Radio or any of their respective advertisers. Listener discretion is advised.
