Also, will WWE just go too far with post-producing now that they have that freedom since the matches aren't live? Also, their reaction to the idea of fans being put on the screen to react to in-ring action as WWE is considering doing. Then they march through the entire announced line-up for WrestleMania and talk about what is likely to happen and the pros and cons of various finishes and approaches including Brock Lesnar vs. Drew McIntyre.

Armchair “Experts”

Listened to this for a while but just got sick of these so called “expert” journalists attempting to tell the actual professionals how their show should be run and how storyline’s should be presented. Sometimes I wish these shows didn’t exist so kayfabe could wasn’t completely dead. I’m glad you guys aren’t considered for a position on the WWE creative team, it would just be boring and predictable

Phenomenal

If you want a light hearted yet fiercely knowledgeable product covering all things wwe
This is a must subscribe. Wade and his co hosts constantly push each other to get the best out of the content at hand, the podcast is so great and I always lament the weekend while waiting for more content ! Alas he needs a life too...I guess
