Another WWE PPV means that it is time for another episode of the Main Event, which covers Money In The Bank 2017, a truly historic night in WWE, and for the Broken Clock Podcasts. The whole team sits down to give their predictions on the show which features the 1st ever Women's Money in the Bank Match. In our discussion of that match, Joe also made a prediction so awful, there was no way it could possibly come true......or could it? This show features both the pre, and post shows, so make sure to stick around as we unpack the show at end, and find out who walked out champ, and who walked away with the second ever Broken Clock Podcasts Money In The Bank briefcase.

We go through all of the conference, and pick our favorites games that we saw, as well as our thoughts and opinions on other notable topics from the week. With a ton of titles revealed, and others showing a first look at gameplay, there is a lot to be excited about, but also a lot to be desired.
With a Monday show date, this weeks episode recording falls right before all of the best bits from E3, but that doesnt mean we dont have anything to talk about.

Adam and Joe also give their hopes for this year's E3, which will stand as documentation about how much they may or may not be right about. This week's what they are playing are also polar opposites, with Joe finally playing the 2 year old Bloodborne, while Adam was all in on the beta for Windjammers. The guys touch on hackers ransoming games, the teaser trailer for Super Nintendo World theme park, and the world famous "Lighting Round/Not Lighting."
