With The People’s Champion nowhere to be seen, two of the best and hardest working guys on the wrestler put on a show for the #1 Contender spot. With CM Punk now out of the picture, we officially have Twice in a Lifetime to look forward to. To add to Rematchamania, it looks as if Brock / Triple H is pretty much a lock – no complaints there, though, after their showing on Raw. Besides that, a whole bunch of filler as Raw hit a bit of a pothole in a sold out Dallas arena. Bumps in the road, or not, we truck on towards New York!

In addition to the usual banter, we also play a wrestler themed version of Doug Benson’s favorite “The Leonard Maltin Game”.

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!
