Podcast Episode 139: John Cena, Still Number One Contender

Maybe the most exciting part of Raw this week.
Maybe the most exciting part of Raw this week.

Raw kicked off with six men in a ring, all with claims to be number one contender. Six men who actually seemed to WANT a shot at Lesnar. How ludicrous is that? But let’s ignore that plot hole (and several others)… What’s the best way to settle things? Book a six man tag to determine who is truly worthy. Makes sense. No wait, it doesn’t. Not in the slightest. What is this? What are we watching? Why are we watching it?

Talk about a holding pattern, folks… It can’t get worse next week, right? We’ll be watching one way or another, like the suckers we are…

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!
