Podcast Episode 462: Kayfabe Is Dead, But You Don’t Have to Piss On It

Say Goodbye to the Bad Guy

We’re in that in-between space from AEW Revolution to WWE WrestleMania. AEW put on a heck of a show. WWE’s gonna do what they do. Overall, we’re still having fun, especially watching the likes of CM Punk, Bryan Danielson/Mox/Regal, Thunder Rosa, and Kevin Owens as they do their things.

But with the fun, comes the real stuff too. We had to say goodbye to a childhood favorite in Scott Hall. And we saw a tragic accident occur with the beloved Big E (Langston.. we still put some respect on the name!).

Join us as we find ourselves on the Road to WrestleMania (watch party, not the actual thing). RIP WrestleMania Road Trip. Long live the WrestleMania Road Trip!

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!
