Podcast Episode 161: Triple H Interview and Course Correction

No wonder Triple H didn't hesitate to stick it to Kevin Dunn during the Steve Austin interview.

Oh, what a difference a week makes. Not only do we get something interesting happening with the Roman Reigns situation, but we get an immediate explanation from the man behind the curtain, Triple H. Though you could tell he was choosing his words carefully, he came across as earnest and straight forward about how WWE is booked in the modern era – the “Reality Era” as it has been dubbed. He confirmed some of our fears, but also left us feeling quite optimistic about the outlook of the company and where he’ll take it. I just hope Vince was listening, and I hope he gets it.

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!
