Podcast Episode 153: Tables Ladders Chairs… and Stairs Preview

Dean knows drama.
Dean knows drama.

Consider this week’s show a bit of a follow up to last week’s utter disappointment in WWE. We talk about what the problems ultimately are, propose several viable solutions, and then circle back around to the realization that the machine will keep moving in the direction they want it to. Money trumps the artform, unfortunately, when you’re playing on the big stage.

We’ll be back to our usual format next week (hopefully) to talk about NXT, TLC, and more.

Featuring: Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag), ‘A Bomb’ Adam Hess (@ahess49), Derek (@cap_kaveman), and ‘Dirtee Jesus’ Hashtag Billi (@DirteeJesus).

Joshua Schlag

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!
