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 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!

Podcast Episode 376: Fresh Afternoon

It’s taken weeks of strife, but finally.. KofiMania is official! Xavier Woods and Big E stepped up to the plate and proved to Vince McMahon that Kofi’s got a chance after all..

In other news, the Japanese wrestling experiment seems to have hit rock bottom – as Asuka’s big moment from WrestleMania has been effectively negated with Charlotte cruising past her to win the SD Women’s Championship in a surprise defense this past week.

You win some, you lose some… One more week til Mania hits New York!

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.
