Podcast Episode 132: Battleground Preview

For America! For Freedom! For bipartisan politics! We the people!

For America! For Freedom! For bipartisan politics! We the people!

The lines in the sand have been drawn as we head to Battleground. It should be a fun one, with a stacked card seeing the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, WWE Tag Team Championship, Divas Championship, and Intercontinental Championship all on the line throughout the night. The midcard isn’t so “mid”, either, with big time bouts between Ambrose / Rollins and Jericho / Wyatt… not to mention the suddenly mega-hot Jack Swagger who looks to defend America against Rusev. Don’t count on many of those feuds to be decided, though – but look for business to pick up as they take us to Los Angeles in August for Summerslam!

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

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

Podcast Episode 131: Roman Is Raw

Cool like the other side of the pillow.

Cool like the other side of the pillow.

This week’s installment came to us from Montreal, and the fans there sure wouldn’t let us forget it. With the backing of a hot crowd, Roman Reigns bookended the show as the man set for success. Beyond that, we had a pretty good amount of solid wrestling action, and we had real progress in Divas storylines. What is going on here? Wrestling is awesome.

Podcast Episode 130: Jericho Returns, AJ Lee Wins Gold

You can't see me. My time is now.

You can’t see me. My time is now.

Are the Monday Night Wars back on? That’s sure what this week’s installment of Raw felt like! Multiple returns, crazy swerves, fun action, and even a title change! It’s going to be a challenge to narrow down the top highlights – from Chris Jericho to Jack Swagger to AJ Lee to Seth Rollins… and more! Crazy. Crazy crazy.

I need a cigarette.

Podcast Episode 129.5: Money in the Bank Results

I didn't want this to ever end. Now it doesn't have to.

I didn’t want this to ever end. Now it doesn’t have to.

After an action packed night from Boston, the tag team and Divas divisions remain more or less unchanged… a new contender has been firmly established in Seth Rollins… and a “new” WWE World Heavyweight Champion has been determined – John Cena wins again!

Featuring: Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag), Bryan ‘Pipe Bomb’ Gregston (@guitarsalad), and Adam Lucidi (@adamlucidi).
