Podcast Episode 321: Elimination Chamber 2018 Results

Brock Lesnar has gone missing. But never fear, Roman Reigns is here to stand up for professional wrestling! That’s pretty much the next month or so of WWE programming, as it revolves around the big Universal Championship match at WrestleMania. Meanwhile, the true MVPs of the show seem to be headed towards a three-way clash as The Miz will likely be defending his Intercontinental Championship against both Seth Rollins and Finn Balor.

Beyond that, Alexa reigns supreme with Asuka hot on her heels and Ronda Rousey has made quite the splash en route to a likely mixed tag match with Triple H and Stephanie. All that and more on this week’s podcast!

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

Podcast Episode 320: Elimination Chamber 2018 Preview

We like surprises. Monday’s episode of RAW was a heck of a pleasant surprise. They tried something different, and it worked. Seth Rollins went from “kinda stale” / “don’t care” to a wrestling god in a matter of 65 minutes, and general excitement for Sunday’s main event rose significantly. Is the general consensus of Roman Reigns winning and going on to face Brock Lesnar still going to happen? We talk about that and some possible alternatives that might work quite nicely…

Meanwhile, SmackDown continues to struggle as a television show. We had some fun watching it in person, but we honestly had a lot more fun during the dark match main event where KO / SZ / Roode / Nakamura all showed sides of themselves we don’t get to see much of on TV.

In addition, the Mixed Match Challenge and 205 Live’s Cruiserweight Championship Tournament both completed their first round this week in Phoenix. Plenty to discuss as we head into Sunday. The road to New Orleans continues..

Podcast Episode 319: Get These Hands

RAW? Good (BRAUUUUNNNN!!!!).

Mixed Match Challenge? Good (Lana is the best… Lana number one! *clap clap*).

205 Live? Good (We knew you had it in you, Drew Gulak!).

SmackDown? …not so much. From being THE show to being an afterthought without direction, characters to attach to, or anything resembling a well thought out television show… the blue brand has been a disappointment as of late. It all sort of hinges on what they’re doing with Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan. Does it come to a conclusion at Mania?

Meanwhile, 205 Live has gotten that CWC tournament mojo back! Drake Maverick is a better GM than Kurt Angle could ever wish to be.

Podcast Episode 318: Happy Rusev Day!

It would be a happier Rusev Day if he had won the United States Championship this week, but alas… we must wait for a greater Rusev Day to come.

Another solid episode of RAW and another sort of awkward episode of SmackDown have passed as we head towards Elimination Chamber. And by “we”, I don’t mean Jason Jordan. Get well soon, Kurt Jr.!
