    STR 457. (Slap)Jackin' in the Wind

    No sponsors, but a show that goes a lot into narrative storytelling. A terrible RAW that did no favor to anyone. The Roman/Uso angle has actual layers, and the narrative issues once AEW Blood and Guts got to the "Match Beyond" where they went for the big ending vs. end of the story. Plus, Lanza and Nov are besties now.

Is AEW falling into a narrative vs. feud trap? Are Rhea or Bianca getting that "toe in the water" semi-push as champs? Also, Jeff explains the audio issues from last week.

The yearly week after Wrestlemania purge happened: out with the old, in with....nobody yet. Backlash is now Wrestlemania...Backlash. How were the follow-ups? Baffling, especially on Smackdown with the Street Profits. Why is Jack Starz the only pure babyface in the WWE expanded universe? Also why a song in a Sami Zayn video is nightmare fuel for Jeff, and Chris explains Bucks-itis.

    WrestleMania was mostly a fun watch over two nights, being helped by good in-ring performances, it being two nights, and having a crowd. Perhaps the best Mania since STR began. Was it perfect? No. Do we have jokes? Yes. But overall the product was inspired even if we how got there wasn't. Jeff and Chris go over both nights.

Mostly analysis of the week of both nights of NXT Takeover: Stand and Deliver and a palate cleanser in between reviewing NXT UK: Prelude. Chris rants about Baron Corbin and Jeff apologizes for his arcane references to the point we have a new bit now when Jeff goes totally 80's.

NerdReality ,

Wonderful

This is the only podcast I keep up with every week. The dynamic between Rob and Jeff is hilarious. Most wrestling podcasts have become overwhelming negative but STR has a good balance. I usually save it for a commute and it does not disappoint.

Edited in 2021: it’s ok. They have bad takes though. I kid.

Dr. Nov to the rescue!

Jeff, thank you for the phenomenal upgrade in co-hosts! You two are the only reasons to waste a second on RAW.
