We’re nearly there, Maniamaniacs, and the sign is getting so big, we have to remove seats in the arena! In the buildup to the Showcase of the Immortals, the nUsos take the SD Tag Team belts, Shane-o-mac makes bad decisions, Raw becomes a rudderless ship, and the guys ask the important questions, like: who DID win the first Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal? (It was Cesaro.)
The Fastlane to the on-ramp to Wrestlemania has come and gone, and both Steve and Jason feel less than whelmed. Will the cruiserweights continue their momentum from their tremendous showing? Can Bayley up her game heading into Wrestlemania? Wouldn’t it be better for EVERYONE to have a spear, since it’s such a devastating move? Why does Bill Goldberg sweat so much doing so little? The answers to these questions, plus: No one will be cheering Roman at Mania, the refs need to learn how to drive a forklift, and Emma debuts soon!
Randy Orton took some initiative and decided to burn down the whole Wyatt compound, which might actually be a shed? Nikki Bella was a best part of a promo between Cena and The Miz? SmackDown was better than Raw? Fastlane is here again? So many surprising twists and turns on this, the Fastlane to Wrestlemania seasontime!
The time is upon us! Once again, a weekend has come that brings us both a WWE event and an NXT TakeOver … takeover. After Goldberg nearly cost the WWE their Wrestlemania plans because he wanted to really sell that promo with a little hardway blood, where will he place in the Rumble match? Will Shaq be in the match? Will Curt Hawkins be in the match? Will the women stand out at all? Is Tye Dillinger the best story going in NXT right now? Answers to those questions and so much more in this super-sized episode that is appropriately bigger in Texas.
The road to the Royal Rumble continues, with not a Roadblock in sight! RAW was pretty terrible this week, so the guys instead focus on Smackdown, NXT, and even NJPW to find the good in the grappling. They wrestle with the following questions: Who will win the 2017 Royal Rumble? Is it possible that entrance themes play magically upon proximity to an entry way? Did Carmella fight an old lady? Will Tozawa save us from a lackluster 205 Live product? Is an Intergalactic Championship on the way?
Welcome to 2017, Grapplers! It seems that not much has changed, but the machine keeps rolling on. We have some Roadblock thoughts and reflections to mix in with our talk about the recent RAW and Smackdown Live goings on, including the HOT FIRE return of the King of the Cruiserweights, Neville, and why Sami Zayn is the most compelling story being told on the RAW roster right now. Also, how many entrance themes include self-voiced intros? Our report!
Steve is concerned with the massive sex problem facing Japan and he wants to discuss it with Jason. He also brings robots into the mix, which, given the geographic setting, isn’t out of the question. Proving that Steve is making great choices, he also regails us with his tales of blood, sweat, and tears, and what his son’s reaction was to seeing them all in person.
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the most historic Survivor Series in history! Who will win ownership of the cruiserweights? Which team will emerge victorious? Will Steve continue to rely on CBS Sports for his pro wrestling news? Will Bill Goldberg survive the night? Who will piss off the Undertaker? We have no answers, but listen as we ponder the possibilities!
The world is in danger, and Bo Dallas is our destructor! Will the cruiserweights save us? Or must we wait for Broken Matt Hardy to leave his current post at TNA and return home to the WWE, brokenness and all? Amidst the chaos and devastation, you’ll also find our rundown of the Clash of Champions card.
It’s real to us, dammit! Hear Steve’s reaction to one of the oldest (and best) wrestling memes, as well as why he tuned out to the Divas awesomeness on RAW. Jason also reports in from the first two episodes of SWERVED, including a message for Zack Ryder. In the second segment, we run down the Battleground card, Randy Orton: King of the Taunt, and how we think Rollins/Orton could truly go any which way.
