Podcast Episode 299: No Mercy 2017 Results

Though the RAW tag team division may be a bit shallow, tag team wrestling in WWE right now is on FIRE! The Usos and New Day set the bar, but The Bar may have just elevated it in a gutsy performance on Sunday with Ambrose and Rollins. Man alive.

No Mercy provided a good amount of fun action with some dissatisfactory results mixed in, but everything ultimately worked out all right with a solid RAW follow up the next night.

SmackDown was indeed in our hometown this week, as well, but nobody from the show made it out to Glendale. Doesn’t sound like we missed much, though…

All that said, yes… we do address the elephant in the room. If you’re here to hear our side of the whole thing that went down with a former contributor to The Steel Cage this past weekend, you’ve come to the right place. If you don’t give a shit, skip the first half hour or so. Either way, it’s time to move on, and we can all do so now with a smile.

Why? Because wrestling… is… fun!

Featuring: Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag) and ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman).

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!
