Podcast Episode 208: Mr. McMahon Goes to Jail


When something looks good on paper, you should probably at least do a dry run before going live in front of millions of people on TV… Don’t you think? That was what was going through my mind during the entire opening sequence of Raw this week. Don’t get me wrong, it was cool to see the likes of Drew Gulak in a police officer’s uniform… But the whole series of events – the acting – the yelling – the smirking – it was all just so bad. Suspend my disbelief? As if.

In addition to running through a lackluster episode of Raw, we also take a few moments to look at the year in WWE and dish out our own awards… Get excited!

Hosted by: ‘A Bomb’ Adam Hess (@ahess49) and ‘Hot Podcast Garbage’ Sprung (@jasprung).

Featuring: Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag), ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman), and ‘Super Jew’ Jared (@SuperJew75).

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!
