Colton kicks off the show with “The Breakdown” presented by O’Neills by talking about the latest duo of Raptors to make the move to the MLR, San Diego Legion’s new home, and all of the rugby you can watch this weekend (0:00-8:40). Following “The Breakdown”, Colton talks with American Raptors wing Jarrod Cann about his playing football in Germany, making the move to rugby, and potentially making the transition to professional wrestling (8:42-34:09). Following the interview with Jarrod, Colton skips “Required Reading” and closes the show with “The Loop” (34:10-35:29).

After his college days, Cann played for the Marburg Mercenaries of the German Football League.
