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!

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!

Podcast Episode 369.5: All Elite Wrestling’s Double or Nothing Press Conference

We took a road trip up to Las Vegas to cover AEW’s event hyping May’s Double or Nothing event at the MGM Grand. We covered the event on social media, partook in the post-event press conference, and even were on the scene for radio interviews the next day. We learned a lot, and are trying to remain cautiously optimistic about the whole thing. I say it that way because it’s easy to get caught up in the hype and feel the energy of those guys and the fans – there’s a ton of potential with All Elite Wrestling – and it could be a good thing for WWE and the entire landscape of pro wrestling + sports entertainment.

Podcast Episode 369: Royal Rumble 2019 Results and Fallout

Royal Rumble weekend wrecked us. So much so that we couldn’t even get together last week to talk about it. Before we went down with various cold and flu symptoms, we had a blast, though. From the Ramble to late nights at Cobra Barcade… Something to Wrestle (…………..with Bruce Prichard) to all of WWE’s live events at Chase Field and TSR Arena.. it was a great time with friends old and new. WWE overall delivered a hell of a slate of shows. Becky Lynch shined bright. Daniel Bryan does what he does best. And the rest of the roster played their roles to an amazing level. If they can keep this up, WrestleMania is going to be a phenomenal show this year.
