Episode 86: Be So Jealous

Danielle Matheson, the blog's co-newest writer and the master of the Best and Worst of Impact over at With Leather, makes her podcast debut this week. We get right into dealing with some of the reaction to her article last week on why The Rock made her feel bad and why he continues to make her feel bad. We get into some of the reasoning behind why her blowback was so bad compared to the backlash I got. We then get into talking about the Rumble and how it's not really as exciting this year because it's a foregone conclusion that John Cena is probably going to win. Danielle has her fantasy booking with Miz winning it, and I posit realities where Antonio Cesaro, Dolph Ziggler, and yes, THE RYBACK end up victorious. She also gets into Miz as leader of The Shield, which I corroborate with a story about how the Awesome Truth was supposed to be the original version of that angle. We get into how disappointing the treatment of women in WWE is as well. It's not all corporate and depressing, as we get into previewing National Pro Wrestling Day and how it's going to be awesome. We're both especially jazzed for the Devastation Corporation against the Latvian Proud Oak and Estonian Thunder Frog for reasons other than match quality. Finally, we end with a PSA of sorts in that you should always be proud of your wrestling fandom.
