Podcast Episode 132: Battleground Preview

For America! For Freedom! For bipartisan politics! We the people!
For America! For Freedom! For bipartisan politics! We the people!

The lines in the sand have been drawn as we head to Battleground. It should be a fun one, with a stacked card seeing the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, WWE Tag Team Championship, Divas Championship, and Intercontinental Championship all on the line throughout the night. The midcard isn’t so “mid”, either, with big time bouts between Ambrose / Rollins and Jericho / Wyatt… not to mention the suddenly mega-hot Jack Swagger who looks to defend America against Rusev. Don’t count on many of those feuds to be decided, though – but look for business to pick up as they take us to Los Angeles in August for Summerslam!

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!
