Podcast Episode 345: SummerSlam 2018 Results and Aftermath

Well, at least we can all move on now. Lesnar is done for the foreseeable future, and Braun Strowman begins his pursuit of the Universal Championship. The SHIELD is back, but they pulled a bitch move on Monday. What’s next for The Hounds of (In)Justice?

Meanwhile, Becky Lynch got shafted at SummerSlam, took out her frustration, and WWE seems to think we shouldn’t support her. Charlotte can be a deserving champion, but she jumped in last minute, took an opportunity, and ultimately won the title from Carmella on Sunday. Again, kind of a bitch move. I, for one, and I know I’m not alone – thoroughly look forward to Becky whooping her ass in the near future!

Oh, and how could I forget about NXT TakeOver? The yellow brand delivered another solid show on Saturday.

We break it ALL down on this week’s show. Let’s do THIS!

Podcast Episode 344: SummerSlam 2018 Preview

FINALLY, after weeks (months?), RAW puts out a decent episode as we head into this weekend’s SummerSlam. Multiple surprises, a fresh voice on commentary (Renee deserves a ‘please come back’ chant), and plenty of filler that didn’t come across as a labor to get through. Dig it.

SmackDown, meanwhile, sort of treaded water, but it was fun enough.

This weekend is jam packed with big time matches, from NXT to the main card. We got together again with our pals from Mat Mania Podcast to break it all down…

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), and NeoEcks (@theneoecks)!

Podcast Episode 336: Money in the Bank 2018 Results

Chicago, you were a lovely crowd. From an underwhelming card at NXT TakeOver that went above and beyond the call of duty (Their prediction? PAIN!!!) to a Money in the Bank show that was longer than it needed to be, but delivered when it counted… these crowds were lively and fun, and so were we as we watched the show from Jared’s pool.

If you haven’t taken in a pro wrestling show while sipping beer in a pool, you’re not living, folks…

Braun Strowman is Mr. Money (Monster) in the Bank. Alexa Bliss was the MITB winner, but quickly snatched up the RAW Women’s Championship. Ronda went off the deep end. And last but not least, Dolph Ziggler hit a high note on his return to relevance as he won the Intercontinental Championship for a sixth time. Crazy! Meanwhile on SmackDown, Asuka made it clear she isn’t done chasing Carmella, while Daniel Bryan was thwarted en route to a title shot – but never fear, we got to enjoy the GREATEST Rusev Day!

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

Podcast Episode 335: Money in the Bank 2018 Preview

Well, this is nice. It’s been over a month since the last WWE Network live event, and our bodies are ready! Compare that to three shows within a single month timeframe, and it’s quite refreshing. Money in the Bank has had a solid build with a lot of hype around the two MITB ladder matches, WWE Championship, and women’s title matches.

Join us this week as we break down the card and give our predictions. We’ll also talk about NXT TakeOver (if anything, this card seems underwhelming), New Japan’s big-time Dominion show last weekend, and the ongoing rivalry between The Elite and The New Day.

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

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).
