Podcast Episode 113: Chicago

Yes! I mean, no! I mean.. I don't know...
Yes! I mean, no! I mean.. I don’t know…

Oh, so many feelings. I’m in a glass case of emotion!

Yes, Raw started off hot and didn’t let up. From Heyman to The Usos, to The Wyatt Family vs The Shield.. There was a lot to love. And then there was Daniel Bryan. Our beaten down hero still thinks he wants Triple H at WrestleMania, having lost sight of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Instead, he faces a familiar scene – beat down at the hands of Triple H and his cohorts. I don’t even know what to think anymore.

And that CM Punk guy that everyone thought would ride to the rescue like Gandalf the White? Forget about it.

That said, there’s a mix of good and bad, but we top it all off with a game… getting back to our roots! Hope you enjoy it.

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!
