The absence of guys like John Cena and Randy Orton has some WWE fans calling for main events, featuring the stars of yesterday. But that’d be a huge mistake; a missed opportunity at building new stars in favor of recycled nostalgia.
Here’s a card that makes the most of the roster, highlights fresh faces, and invests in the future of the WWE. […]
The two dumbest people you know are back with the best wrestling podcast in the world. And, this time, we’ve brought a friend: yet another Rich. This isn’t a JT Kasin, our pal from NYWC, but a beloved friend who happened to be in the room while we were recording.

And to start everything off, we’ll look at where it all — meaning, all of literature as we currently understand it — with the Epic of Gilgamesh. […]
It’s the Final Day of #BatistaWeek, the 19th installment of our (patent-pending) Juice Make Sugar Wrestler of the Week series. As always, we’ll finish everything off with a Difference of Opinion, where JMS devolves into a Batista Bomb-fueled civil war. […]
