Podcast Episode 157: John Cena Appreciation Night

Stephanie's mom dance is the winner of the night.

Stephanie’s mom dance is the winner of the night.

If revenge is a dish best served cold, then John Cena will be eating out of his refrigerator all week long. Maybe even his freezer. Throughout The Authority’s return episode of Raw, they systematically destroyed the men who aided in their dismissal back in November. And at the end – they all lost their jobs – as celebratory music played and confetti fell from the ceiling in honor of John Cena.

To add to that, Cena has effectively lost his third shot at a one on one match with champion Brock Lesnar – Seth Rollins has been added to the mix. I’m still not sure what to make of it, but I feel like it isn’t for the best. Part of me was looking forward to the penultimate match up… I don’t know. We’ll see, I guess…

Anyway, we also spend some time this week talking about New Japan’s Wrestle Kingdom 9. Then we review the year that was 2014 and we make predictions for 2015. All of which will be wrong.

About Joshua Schlag

For most of the last 20+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years. Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us. It's still real to me, dammit!
