Podcast Episode 105: Old School Raw

You've come a long way, baby.
You’ve come a long way, baby.

WWE is off to a hot start in 2014, giving us surprises and keeping us talking after Raw went off the air. This week, we saw the triumphant return of Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts as he helped with the attack on The Shield. Jake has come a long way in rehab and fixing his life with the help of DDP alongside Scott Hall and others. If seeing the look of joy on his face didn’t bring a tear to your eye, there’s something wrong with your heart.

In addition, we got to see the intriguing continuation of Daniel Bryan’s involvement with The Wyatt Family, Rowdy Roddy Piper threw down a verbal assault on The Shield, Brock Lesnar snapped Mark Henry’s arm, and much more!

Join us as we discuss all of this, and we also put a bow on 2013 with our final thoughts on ‘best of’ awards.

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!
