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 343: Don’t You Dare Be Sour

So, we started recording this episode in the midst of a desert thunderstorm, so you can definitely hear that in the background, but it clears up pretty quickly and the power never goes out! Chalk that up as a win. Anyway…

Awwwwwwwww… The Steel Cage Universe! Don’t you dare be sour! Clap for your one again #1 Tag Team Championship contenders! It’s The New Day, yes it is! As it only really could have been… These guys keep tweaking their approach and keep killing it in the ring, so this is well deserved.

Overall, this week in WWE is similar to previous weeks – 2% of RAW being worthwhile, and 98% of SmackDown Live being worthwhile. So it goes.

Featuring: ‘Super Jew’ Jared (@SuperJew75), ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman), Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag), and our very own ‘Captain Boomerang’ Greig Tansley (@greigT13).

Podcast Episode 342: Do It With Flair

Brock is back with a vengeance, isn’t he? As long as he gets to reign supreme and beat people up, he just doesn’t seem to care about anything else. That may be his downfall…

Over on the blue brand, we had another return with Charlotte coming in to rain on Becky Lynch’s parade. As crappy as it feels, Becky getting a solid W over both the champ and Ms. Flair could be just the thing to make her SummerSlam moment that much bigger.

We’ll see if either of those things happen in just a couple of weeks…

Also, we of course talk about the week’s news, from unfortunate passings to likely election results. Oh, and last (but not least) we went to NXT Live in Phoenix and have some things to say about the yellow brand’s roster, both good and bad. Tune in!

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

Podcast Episode 341: Walk With Elias

Ladies and Gentlemen: Elias. LOL JK. It’s a Murder City Shakedown!

So yeah. I’m glad we have Elias’ debut album, the first episode of Miz and Mrs., and the announcement of WWE Evolution to talk about this week. It sure beats the alternative: SummerSlam’s awful main event. We’re weeks away and hype has already hit rock bottom. Where do we go from here?

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

Podcast Episode 340: Extreme Rules 2018 Results

Extreme Rules wasn’t exactly extreme (don’t tell that to KO or the ladies of RAW) but it was a pretty solid show overall. My cautious optimism about Bobby Lashley panned out well (for now), two titles changed hands, and we were treated to some new and fun takes on wrestling.

Despite Kurt Angle’s lack of testicular anything, we’re moving on to SummerSlam, and as a result – MMA is becoming more prominently featured. Kinda makes you wonder what sort of deals got worked out between UFC and WWE behind closed doors.

Lastly, did you see Kofi fling pancakes from the ring to the upper deck?! Why am I the only one impressed by this???

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