Talking Smack brought us many great moments during its original incarnation, including an amazing promo on Daniel Bryan by The Miz that basically turned Miz's entire career around, but the all-time greatest segment was the time Young and Bryan accosted AJ Styles for his Flat Eartherism.
"I do not think the world is flat," said Styles after Bryan accused him of subscribing to the popular conspiracy theory that the Earth is actually flat. "I'm just saying there's some stuff about it, that's all."
"The Earth is a sphere," Bryan later explained to Styles, who responded, "Okay."
"It moves on an axis," added Young.
"Okay," Styles responded again. "I'm not a flat-Earther. I'm just saying, there's some things about it that make sense."
It will be tough to top that, but Styles is still with WWE and on SmackDown, so maybe Braxton and Woods should have him on and have a go at him for some of his other crazy beliefs. Talking Smack returns tomorrow on the WWE Network.
