Swiss cake roll uppercut!
Swiss cake roll uppercut!

Raw was feeling pretty lackluster, but then Lesnar attacked a car with an axe. It was glorious. And then it became mostly lackluster again. And then Cena faced Cesaro in a rematch from last week. This time, Kevin Owens minded his own business – presumably to ensure his position in a one on one match at Battleground. We are sure glad he did! The two men put on a masterpiece.

BONUS: We talk a bit about New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Dominion show that took place the day after WWE’s Tokyo event. Spoiler alert – it might be their show of the year!

Featuring: Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag), Derek (@cap_kaveman), and ‘Dirtee Jesus’ Billi Bhatti (@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!
