Podcast Episode 149: Ryback’s Big Adventure

Someone's having a little too much fun..
Someone’s having a little too much fun..

I have to give credit where it’s due… WWE is succeeding in building up Survivor Series – where two teams that have been semi-randomly put together actually comes across as compelling. Bravo!

This week’s episode of Raw pretty much nailed down the teams: for #TheAuthority, we’ll have Seth Rollins, Kane, Mark Henry, Rusev, and Luke Harper… and for #TeamCena, we’ll see John Cena, Big Show, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, and (seemingly) Ryback. Can’t say each and every one of those guys makes me excited, but the story on a high level has got my attention. There’s just one Monday night left between us and turducken!

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!
