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 310: Clash of Champions 2017 Preview

Podcast Episode 309: The Woken Podcast

Jason Jordan, rising star. Matt Hardy, crazed genius. Samoa Joe, badass prize fighter. Yes, yes, and yes. Add an intriguing women’s faction and a roster of talent on 205 Live who are looking to make an even bigger presence felt in 2018 – and you’ve got a great recipe for good wrestling product on RAW.

Over on the SmackDown side of things, KO and Sami Zayn are carrying the blue brand as we get closer to seeing Daniel Bryan make some moves…

Podcast Episode 307: Survivor Series 2017 Results

So, Houston was pretty much inundated with pro wrestling of the WWE variety this past weekend. NXT Takeover, Survivor Series, RAW, and SmackDown all came to us from the Toyota Center… and pretty much all of it was a fun watch!

From War Games to Braun unleashing his power on Triple H, Paige making her return to a wealth of NXT women making their move to the main roster, and even a Roman Reigns victory that was hard to not hate… one can only hope that next year’s Survivor Series can live up to this sort of hype.

Featuring: Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag), ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman), and David (@DarthCinema).

Podcast Episode 306: Survivor Series 2017 Preview

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Slurvivor Series is upon us! We here at The Steel Cage will be gathering to eat turducken, drink whiskey, and watch some wrestling this Sunday. It’s going to be a disaster.

Before that, though – we have a solid NXT TakeOver card to catch on Saturday.

The past month of WWE programming has been pretty fun, and we’re expecting more of the same.
*raises glass to Braun Strowman* TO BRAUN STROWMAN!!!

Featuring: Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag), ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman), and Mike.
