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 375: No Chance in Hell

Kofi-Mania is running wild! I mean, he did technically lose to Daniel Bryan to close out SmackDown, but c’mon.. We know this match is going to happen at this point. It’s too hot not to!

Oh, and hey. By the way, a couple of us went to Ring of Honor’s 17th Anniversary show this past weekend in Las Vegas. Our buddy Mega Ran performed… at least until Bully Ray interfered. That was weak, but we got to hang out backstage and we have *some* stories about that to share. We also have some we can’t / won’t share either. #protecthebusiness and we’re not #newz #dirtsheets

Anyway, WrestleMania feels like it should be here. But we’ve got a couple weeks still. Hang tight, y’all.

Podcast Episode 374: Fastlane 2019 Results

This week, the guys break down a whole lot of wrestling. Fastlane, RAW, and SmackDown all pretty much delivered. Last week’s NXT was different… in a good way. Ring of Honor is having their big anniversary show this weekend – and we’ll be there for it!

Tune in to find out our takes on Kofi-Mania, Becky / Ronda / Charlotte, and hear why I’m apparently a horrible person.

Podcast Episode 372: I Don’t Care What the Script Says

So much good stuff going on in the world of WWE these days, folks! Roman Reigns’ leukemia is in recession and he has returned to raucous support. The meta-storyline of WWE is in full swing with Vince undermining the decisions of his children (and son-in-law) right and left. It’s not that they’re horrible decisions, but they’re not exactly “best for business” if you know what I mean. To that end, Kevin Owens is back and learning a thing or two from Stone Cold. Batista returned as well, and beat up a 70-year-old man in the process – and it’s my favorite thing among all the things to happen this week.

Meanwhile, NXT keeps setting the bar higher, Becky and Ronda are breaking all the rules on Twitter, Tommy Wiseau is trying to get in on WrestleMania, and R-Truth has become a bona fide champion. What could go wrong?

Podcast Episode 371: Elimination Chamber 2019 Results

Well, it’s been quite a week, hasn’t it?

Elimination Chamber happened. We saw a handful of new champions, followed by a handful of main roster debuts (dare we call them call-ups, or no?)… AEW’s presence continues to be felt months before their first official event…. And Kofi Kingston is grabbing ahold of that brass ring, daddeh!

Podcast Episode 370: Elimination Chamber 2019 Preview

The Man was faced with a difficult decision, and when it came down to it – Becky Lynch apologized. But was it enough? Was it enough for all of the McMahon family?

AEW threw down the gauntlet last week with its focus on tag team wrestling. Would WWE rise up to the challenge? Just ask The Revival. They put on a clinic and are set to change the direction of RAW’s tag division.

…and then there’s Kofi Kingston. If you haven’t seen it, find a way to watch the second half of this week’s SmackDown.

Elimination Chamber has a lot of interesting plots and subplots. We’ll see how it all shakes out this Sunday on WWE Network!
