Podcast Episode 75: Payback Preview

We are just days away from Payback, where every championship will be on the line in front of a raucous crowd in Chicago. With the way the card is shaping up, it’s possible that the building won’t be burned to the ground if CM Punk is a no show. Ah, who am I kidding? I hope Jared can figure out how to produce the show in my absence.

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!
