WWE Network Original Reviews: Table for Three 5×07 – Ladies Luncheon

by Chris Cummings


I’ve been a fan of Table for Three since it began a few years back. It’s a super-fun concept, and allows three wrestling personalities to sit down and chit-chat for twenty-five minutes about their relationship to each other and their careers. I mean, it’s a pretty short program, so it never really gets going in terms of in-depth conversation of incredible revelations, but it’s entertaining none-the-less, and so I thought I’d start talking a bit about the episodes as they land, sadly… the episode that just landed is perhaps one of the least interesting in a while.

That’s not to say the new episode of Table for Three is unwatchable or bad, because it isn’t. It just isn’t particularly interesting, either. The Ladies Luncheon episode features Mandy-Rose, Carmella and former WWE Diva (remember those?) and 2019 WWE Hall of Famer, Torrie Wilson. I’m not quite sure what links these women, aside from them being… well, women, who also happen to be blonde. I like Carmella, and Mandy Rose has shown improvement since she debuted, and Torrie, though not someone I think of as a talented worker, seems like a positive person with a kind manner. The three of them have a chat about wrestling, about how Torrie’s era of WWE differs from today’s product, and they share a few stories about their careers, how they got into wrestling, and how they feel about the way women’s wrestling has changed.

I think if these three women had been given an hour or two to talk about women’s wrestling and their specific parts in it, then this could have been an interesting and insightful show, but that isn’t how Table for Three works, and so we got just over twenty minutes of casual chatter about WWE. This show really does have potential to be much more. This could, in all honesty, be a WWE Network video podcast, of sorts, with three people talking for an hour or two about their careers in the way we’ve seen with Chris Jericho, Mick Foley and Steve Austin on the Network in the past, only with a difference. The runtime just isn’t long enough.

Still, if you’re a fan of this program then this is another episode to sit and enjoy for a quick few minutes. It’s not the most enthralling conversation, but part of that is down to the awfully short space of time these folks have to cover the bases.

Table for Three Seasons 1 – 5 are available to stream now on WWE Network
