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 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!

Podcast Episode 380: The Shakeup Continues!

It’s still painfully clear that RAW is booked to go from PPV (Network Event) to PPV (Network Event), while SmackDown has already hit the ground running post-Mania with compelling storylines. Overall, entertaining enough, but they seem to be treading a bit of water in the midst of the shakeup and before going all in on MITB setup.

Podcast Episode 379: Superstar Shakeup 2019

The post-Mania shows have come and gone, and this week – WWE has left us all shooketh. Or at least, they’d hope. Honestly, it was kinda meh – at least in presentation – but the moves made between RAW, SmackDown, NXT, and even 205 Live – they will indeed have repercussions that will be felt throughout the summer and beyond. We break down all the break-ups, later moves, promotions, and demotions in this week’s show!

Podcast Episode 378: WrestleMania 35 Results

Last weekend, we collectively watched probably 1000+ hours of wrestling. Not really, but it sure felt like it. And overall? Pretty good stuff. NXT was all killer / no filler (as per usual) with TakeOver New York. WrestleMania was the marathon of wrestling events, but mostly delivered the goods. New Japan Pro Wrestling brought their A-game, as well, despite Ring of Honor’s misguided efforts to be edgy or interesting or whatever.

Don’t worry – we won’t break down all the cards. That’d take forever and frankly – you wouldn’t want to hear it. But we do hit the highlights (and lowlights) of the weekend and its aftermath. Next week, things are about to shake up!
