Podcast Episode 160: Royal Rumble 2015 Aftermath

Death from above!!!
Death from above!!!

Well. Here we are. The dust has settled (more or less) from the Royal Rumble, and the snow has moved in. Lucky for WWE, at that! They didn’t have to deal with further backlash after the catastrophe that was the Royal Rumble main event. Blizzardgeddon 2015 was truly a blessing in disguise.

That said, there are a lot of question marks in the WWE right now. What will WrestleMania look like? Will they proceed as planned? Will they be forced to call an audible? Where do guys like Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, Bray Wyatt, and Dean Ambrose fit? Is Roman Reigns really the future of the WWE?

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

Featuring: ‘The Beast from the Middle East’ Darrell Johnson (@zazzumplop), Derek (@cap_kaveman), and ‘Dirtee Jesus’ Hashtag Billi (@DirteeJesus).

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!
