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 357: Survivor Series & NXT WarGames Preview

What a crazy couple of days in WWE!

Becky Lynch becomes an ICON. Then she’s out of the match at Survivor Series. That may end up catapulting her to main event status at the grandest stage of them all. Crazy, huh?

Then Daniel Bryan wins the WWE Championship. Except, he does it in nefarious fashion. Are we okay with this? We barely have time to process it prior to the big match against Brock Lesnar.

WarGames and Survivor Series look like they’re going to be a LOT of fun, and we have a LOT of fun discussing it.

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

…and the Mat Mania Podcast (@MatManiaPodcast) Crew: Teek Hall (@Teek_Hall), Roknowledge (@Roknowledge), NeoEcks (@theneoecks), and Mega Ran (@MegaRan)!

Podcast Episode 356: Bro.

We’re living in a different world, folks. WWE puts out a minimum of 8 hours each week of original in-ring wrestling content. When special events like the Mae Young Classic or Mixed Match Challenge are going on, that goes up a couple. When there’s a PPV, we’re pushing 20 hours that week. It’s INSANE.

But it’s not a bad thing. It just means a lot of us have to change the way we consume the product. And frankly, not watching all of it is okay. We delve into that a bit this week, and we talk a LOT about NXT (sorry not sorry, Sprung). If you just want to catch our feelings on RAW / SD / Survivor Series, you could probably skip the first hour – but I’d really recommend you catch up on the yellow brand and give the whole thing a listen.

And then, let us know what kind of a viewer you are. We’re curious what our fellow fans are doing as we continue to move into this new era of WWE everything.

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

Podcast Episode 351: Super Show-Down (Under) Preview

October 2018. A month where WWE doesn’t have a “normal” monthly PPV. We have this big Australian show coming up this weekend, and we have a women’s show at the end of the month, but combined with (another) Saudi Arabian show at the beginning of November – that’s it until Survivor Series. Kinda crazy.

That said, we break down the way this show was booked, but we also take a bit of an aside to talk NXT, 205, and more!

Featuring: ‘Captain Boomerang’ Greig Tansley (@greigT13), ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman), and Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag).

Podcast Episode 350: RIP, TruthTV

Derek’s off living the dream, hanging out with pro baseball players and Daniel Bryan, like it’s no big deal.

On this week’s episode, you KNOW we talk about that, but we also dive into R-Truth’s resurgence as a comedic performer, Stone Cold Becky Lynch, the ridiculousness of Randy Orton, and of course – the now infamous injury that Liv Morgan faced in her match involving Brie Bella.

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