Transformation. Matt Hardy did it to Bray Wyatt and created The Fiend. Now The Fiend has seemed to make it his mission to change his opponents – just look at his gloves – HURT and HEAL. He’s hurt the likes of Finn Balor and Seth Rollins, while he’s arguably healed Daniel Bryan.

We’re hitting a milestone ourselves with Episode #400 as we wrap up 2019 and prepare for 2020. With that, we’ve come to accept our own transformation as wrestling fans. No longer do we glue ourselves to appointment television with 5+ hours of new and live content each week. We’re free to pick and choose what we want, when we want. Beyond the weekly action, there are now talk shows, podcasts, and various other forms of media to ingest.

If you’ve listened to us over the years, you know that with change comes some protest – but I think we’re ultimately headed in a good direction as wrestling content has never been so available and diversified. Don’t care for Corey Graves? Don’t listen to his podcast, and give The New Day’s weekly show a try instead. Hating on the Rusev love triangle storyline? Get three hours of your week back by skipping RAW – you can still keep up with the storylines by watching monthly PPVs or even “This Week in WWE” on WWE Network. None of the above your speed or flavor? Now there’s a solid alternative with AEW, along with the resurging TNA and NJPW offerings.

Here’s to transformation!

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!
