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!

Podcast Episode 389: Extreme Rules, Fight for the Fallen, Evolve 131 Preview

You guys. There’s a LOT happening right now in pro wrestling. RAW and SmackDown are going through changes. Their voices are cracking. Hair is showing up in places they didn’t know hair would grow. We have stories about cuckolding. We have Kevin Owens running around like a mad man on the mic, even using the Stone Cold Stunner.

And this weekend we have SO MUCH wrestling to watch. And that ain’t bad. From AEW’s Fight for the Fallen and Evolve 131 (10th Anniversary) going head to head, Extreme Rules 2019, and the opening weekend of New Japan’s G1… let’s get into it!

Podcast Episode 387: Stomping Grounds 2019 Preview

After a much needed week off, Derek and Josh get together to talk about the current state of WWE. Like Katy Perry said, “You’re hot then you’re cold” – and that’s exactly the way WWE has felt lately. Luckily, this week they were hot – just in time for Stomping Ground. We’ll break down RAW and SmackDown and preview this Sunday’s show.

Podcast Episode 386: NXT TakeOver XXV

Adam Cole, BAY-BAY! Need we say anything else?

But really, during a week in which WWE is promoting their Saudi Arabia show and going extra light on the in-ring action, there’s little need to pay attention to any of that. If you aren’t caught up on NXT, now is the time to do so. Still hungry for wrestling? New Japan’s Best of the Super Juniors Final took place this week as well, and though we recorded before it went down – it’s sure to be an exciting one as Jon Moxley makes his first in-ring appearance since WWE.

Podcast Episode 383: Money in the Bank 2019 Preview

Lots to talk about this week: from the Money in the Bank show to AEW officially having a basic cable deal with TNT, there’s a lot to dig into. WWE’s championship picture has a ton of potential, but will it be tapped into properly? Don’t sleep on AJ Styles, and don’t you dare sleep on Bayley!

Podcast Episode 381: Yowie Wowie!

Well hello kids, and welcome to disappointment! RAW and SD had one of “those” weeks, I guess you could say. No matter – we had plenty of other entertainment to keep our attention – from Avengers to Game of Thrones to even Taylor Swift… Heck, it’s always easy to put NXT up on a pedestal – but hey, they’ve earned it. We’ll dive into some rumors this week – from Dean Ambrose / Jon Moxley to Luke Harper, Sasha Banks, and beyond… Lots to speculate about, at least!
