Please speak into the microphone.

Each year, the Royal Rumble promises an hour or so of countdowns, surprises, ridiculousness, and excitement. The 2016 incarnation delivered in spades! From AJ Styles coming in at #3 to Sami Zayn facing off with Kevin Owens, to the early dismissal of Brock Lesnar – they had us on the edge of our seats. Kofi Kingston did his thing, and R-Truth had me laughing so hard I was wiping away tears. The ending maybe wasn’t the greatest, but hey – it could have been worse!

Then The Rock returned on RAW with probably his best segment since the Attitude Era, and I still don’t think I’ve recovered. Amazing couple of days of wrestling in WWE. The Road to WrestleMania 32 is off to a solid start.

BONUS: ‘Big Dick Johnson’ Chris DeJoseph (@ChrisDeJoseph) joins us on the eve of Lucha Underground’s season premiere to talk about the trailblazing they did in season one and what we can expect this year.

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

Featuring: ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman), ‘Hot Podcast Garbage’ Sprung (@jasprung), ‘Super Jew’ Jared (@SuperJew75), and ‘The Beast from the Middle East’ Darrell Johnson (@zazzumplop).

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!
