Last weekend, we collectively watched probably 1000+ hours of wrestling. Not really, but it sure felt like it. And overall? Pretty good stuff. NXT was all killer / no filler (as per usual) with TakeOver New York. WrestleMania was the marathon of wrestling events, but mostly delivered the goods. New Japan Pro Wrestling brought their A-game, as well, despite Ring of Honor’s misguided efforts to be edgy or interesting or whatever.

Don’t worry – we won’t break down all the cards. That’d take forever and frankly – you wouldn’t want to hear it. But we do hit the highlights (and lowlights) of the weekend and its aftermath. Next week, things are about to shake up!

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!
