Podcast Episode 218: Roadblock 2016 Preview

From ROH to NXT to WrestleMania? Be still, my heart.
From ROH to NXT to WrestleMania? Be still, my heart.

Kevin Owens vs Neville. The New Day vs Y2AJ. Dean Ambrose vs Bray Wyatt. Three SOLID matches (and at least one MOTY contender) on one episode of Raw. Wow. Who’s ready for WrestleMania? I mean, Roadblock.

In addition to the in ring action, we got Shane McMahon acting like a badass, Sami Zayn reigniting his feud with Owens, and Chris Jericho resuming his rightful role of spiteful heel. Lots of good stuff is happening, and we’re still not sure how half of it plays into Mania – but that’s alright, isn’t it?

Seriously, though. Roadblock looks pretty solid, with some interesting potential. Will it really be interesting, though? Will it shake anything up heading into WrestleMania, so late in the game? Tune in Saturday to find out, I guess.

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!
