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 331: Paychecks and Championships

To paraphrase a conversation between Corey Graves and Booker T this week on RAW, wrestlers are motivated by two things: paychecks and championships. Why is it, then, that some wrestlers seem to be wandering aimlessly, neither really entertaining the crowd (putting their jobs in jeopardy) nor going after championships (making them a footnote on every show).

Wait, is that what this podcast is about this week? Maybe. Probably not. Why don’t you find out the hard way?

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

Podcast Episode 328: Greatest Royal Rumble Preview

We weren’t going to do a show this week, but then the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia backed a truck full of money into my driveway… So here we are.

It may be too early to reach a final verdict, but man… It seems like RAW is totally skippable and SmackDown is totally unmissable again. The rosters seem to work out that way, and so far… the story telling does as well.

3 hours of RAW < 2 hours of SmackDown + 1 hour of NXT. Three does not equal three. Math is power. Featuring: 'Super Jew' Jared (@SuperJew75), Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag) and ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman).
