This year’s Clash of Champions proved to be a passable, if not decent, show. Plenty of good matches, but a couple of finishes that left many scratching their heads. The next big show for the #TeamRed is Hell in a Cell – will we get to see Cesaro and Sheamus take center stage?

Also, there has been a lot of talk lately about TNA’s desperate financial situation. Folks are even starting to talk about WWE purchasing them outright to own their library of content, which would be a great move. But would any of the talent survive such a move?

Lastly, a running thread in this episode – we take a look at what WWE has done with NXT call-ups, the new batch of Cruiserweights, and the RAW Women’s division. There is a lot that has gone wrong in this area, despite a ton of talent. Storylines and character development are getting the shaft in exchange for ‘more wrestling’…

Featuring: ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman), Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag), ‘Dirty Jesus’ Billi Bhatti (@DirtyJesusBrand), and Nick (@Nick_fromNY).

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!
