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 335: Money in the Bank 2018 Preview

Well, this is nice. It’s been over a month since the last WWE Network live event, and our bodies are ready! Compare that to three shows within a single month timeframe, and it’s quite refreshing. Money in the Bank has had a solid build with a lot of hype around the two MITB ladder matches, WWE Championship, and women’s title matches.

Join us this week as we break down the card and give our predictions. We’ll also talk about NXT TakeOver (if anything, this card seems underwhelming), New Japan’s big-time Dominion show last weekend, and the ongoing rivalry between The Elite and The New Day.

Featuring: ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman), and Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag), ‘Hot Podcast Garbage’ Sprung (@jasprung), and ‘Super Jew’ Jared (@SuperJew75).

Podcast Episode 334: We Want Tacos

It’s become a tradition in many cities across the country: your team gets a certain number of runs / strikeouts / three-pointers / etc., everybody in the stadium gets free tacos from Jack in the Box / Taco Bell / other. Curt Hawkins saw an opportunity to make the end of his losing streak an even bigger deal. Instead, we got a match between Kevin Owens and Finn Balor. Not a bad consolation prize…

Meanwhile, on SmackDown, The Miz got a bit overzealous with The New Day’s pancakes. Lots of food-related hijinks in WWE. How will it all impact Money in the Bank?

Podcast Episode 333: Shinsuke Counts to Ten

The title of this episode is not made in jest. For real. If Shinsuke Nakamura is counting to ten, you are in trouble. On the other hand, if Dana Brooke was counting to ten, you should probably place a bet on Jinder Mahal winning the WWE Championship. Oh, what? That was a thing? Well, wrestling sure is weird, isn’t it?

Podcast Episode 332: It’s Lana Day!

SmackDown is back on top. RAW is hit or miss (mostly miss). Total Bellas is back on the air and Daniel Bryan is the reason to watch. All is right with the world. If you can deal with the RAW stuff. Hell, just skip RAW and listen to us talk about it instead. We’ll keep that part short, I promise.
