BREAKING: Cesaro to be an unlockable character in the next Marvel vs Capcom game.

Well, it’s official. Daniel Bryan has been unceremoniously removed from the WWE Championship picture. Having rightful claim to a match versus Randy Orton without intervention, he has been pushed down into a new feud alongside CM Punk versus The Wyatt Family. Meanwhile, Big Show has assumed the role of “YES” man as he chases WWE gold, much to Triple H’s chagrin. Welcome to the new normal.

Stay tuned after the show for a very special musical interlude from Billi… I mean, Randy Orton.

Hosted By: Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag)

Featuring: ‘The Beast From the Middle East’ Darrell Johnson (@zazzumplop), Hashtag Billi (@DirteeJesus), and ‘A-Bomb’ Adam Hess (@ahess49).

For most of the last 30+ 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!
