About Joshua Schlag

For most of the last 20+ 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!

Podcast Episode 433: Royal Rumble 2021 Preview

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! That’s right, everyone’s favorite PPV – the Royal Rumble – is back, bay bay! It’ll feel a bit different without the usual crowd, but the 30-competitor matches themselves tend to rarely if ever disappoint. So we’ve got that (despite Goldberg being on the card).

This week, Derek and Beek are joined by Josh, who has no idea what’s going on. So they do the work of catching him up while getting hyped for this Sunday. They also talk about the WWE move to Peacock, and how there’s absolutely no downside to it. None. Stop complaining. You’re being stupid.

Featuring: ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman), ‘Uncle Beek’ Jeremey (@jaimsvanderbeek), & Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag)

Podcast Episode 431: TLC Recap + 2020 Year in Review

Don’t go chasing waterfalls… or Randy Orton, for that matter. He’ll light your ass on fire. Or at least a pile of pillows that somewhat resembles you.

This week, we get the gang together to talk TLC for a bit… and then we dive into the year that was 2020. From Edge to empty arenas, layoffs, and the rise of heel Roman Reigns – there’s a ton to go through, and we pull no punches doing it.

Podcast Episode 430: WAR GAMES!!!

It’s that time of year again. The time of year where we get to hear William Regal say “WAR GAMES!” in the most menacing Blackpool accent possible. From that event to the whole AEW x Impact crossover with Kenny Omega, to the reemergence of Sting on TNT – there’s plenty to talk about, and we’re here for it.

Podcast Episode 425: Clash of Champions Results

Tribal Chief

Hail to the Tribal Chief! The biggest takeaway from 2020’s Clash of Champions is the evolution of Roman Reigns into the dark and brooding force that he is. It’s really about the closest to what he was when he was simply “The Muscle” of The SHIELD – but it’s so much more than that.

We break that down, as well as our favorite matches from this past Sunday, the ridiculousness of Retribution, COVID infections, and so much more.

Podcast Episode 420: Dude Love Boat

Uncle Beek

It’s our favorite Uncle Beek’s 40th birthday, and by amazing coincidence – it’s also episode 420 of our podcast! What better way to celebrate this milestone than a good ol’ fashioned clusterfuck of a podcast? Join us as we talk Extreme Rules Horror Show, AEW, and lots more…

Featuring: ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman), ‘Uncle Beek’ Jeremey (@jaimsvanderbeek), ‘The NeoEcks’ David Valencia (@theneoecks), ‘Hot Podcast Garbage’ Sprung (@jasprung), Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag), ‘Pipe Bomb’ Bryan Gregston (@guitarsalad), and ‘SuperJew’ Jared (@superjew75)
