Podcast Episode 231: Teddy Long Returns

We're going to make this a TAG TEAM match, playas!
We’re going to make this a TAG TEAM match, playas!

You know it’s the Mack militant, coming to get it on! Yeah, you know what that means, playa! Teddy Long is back, presumably to fill the void left by Shane McMahon’s absence this week. It was kinda funny, right?

This week’s show focused primarily on building up the feud between participants in the Money in the Bank match, as well as the tag team championship match coming up at MITB in Las Vegas. But it also did some good work to progress the AJ / Cena feud. It’s legitimately feeling like NJPW’s AJ Styles vs the version of John Cena we great to hate over the years. Not sure I like having to go back to those old Cena feelings, but this is working for the feud at least…

That said, tune in for the UFC talk, and stay for the NXT talk!

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!
