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 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.

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

Podcast Episode 418: Everything is EVIL

Everything is EVIL

Oh, Japan. You guys were responsible and you get to have in-person wrestling events. How we in the States envy you. That said, New Japan is doing some kind of amazing things with a limited roster. Believe it or not, Bullet Club is BACK! I mean, they never went anywhere, but let’s face it – they’ve been effectively neutered over the years as top industry stars came and went from the faction and New Japan as a whole. But now, it’s EVIL – and it’s working. Boo these men!

From the New Japan Cup 2020 to Dominion to Sengoku Lord – we’ve got a lot to discuss!

Podcast Episode 415: Naito!!!

First ever New Japan double champion!
Back in January, New Japan Pro Wrestling kicked off the year in their usual fashion – with a banger of a card on January 4 at the Tokyo Dome. Little did we know back then, though, that they’d have just a few more shows before shutting down for the majority of the first half of 2020.

It’s now June, and NJPW is back, baby! The New Japan Cup 2020 bracket has been released, and we are here for it.

Josh and Neo spent the last week or so (re)watching Wrestle Kingdom and catching (back) up on the storylines, rivalries, and top contenders as we head into the second half of the year. They break down some of the matches from the January show and share their hype over what’s to come.

If you’re looking for alternatives to WWE, or even just have a general curiosity about New Japan – we’d be glad to take you along on this journey with us!

In the meantime, add these to your watch list:
