Extreme Rules wasn’t exactly extreme (don’t tell that to KO or the ladies of RAW) but it was a pretty solid show overall. My cautious optimism about Bobby Lashley panned out well (for now), two titles changed hands, and we were treated to some new and fun takes on wrestling.

Despite Kurt Angle’s lack of testicular anything, we’re moving on to SummerSlam, and as a result – MMA is becoming more prominently featured. Kinda makes you wonder what sort of deals got worked out between UFC and WWE behind closed doors.

Lastly, did you see Kofi fling pancakes from the ring to the upper deck?! Why am I the only one impressed by this???

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!
