Is this hell? No, it’s Iowa. Hey, they can’t all be winners, folks. Raw this week was a bit of a struggle, but we’ll try and pick apart a segment or two that didn’t make us want to change the channel over to a non-existent Nitro. PLUS: Hear what DDP himself, Diamond Dallas Page, had to say to Sprung about getting in shape. It’s summer time folks, time to get in shape.. to sit on the couch.. and watch more wrestling.

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!
