We give a post-mortem on the Covid era, Chris hated NXT Takeover: In Your House as we give ice cold takes, and after a few things we liked and disliked on the shows of the week go into a Hell in A Cell preview. Plus, why did Jeff buy 250 dollars worth of bacon.

    Sponsored by MyBookie and Manscaped this week (Use Code ROPES on either). Chris turns 35 so as a present, and is in full grumpy old man mode. We talk morale behind the scenes at corporate WWE, amidst criticism of the main roster we delve into Rey Mysterio Theatre, find an oasis of happiness in NXT UK, and preview NXT Takeover: In Your House. If you're a Fugazi fan, Chris is here for you.

    Budget cuts and reckless speculation on acquisitions and where those who were let go will end up. Was that Adam Cole/Karrion Kross exchange good for either guy? We end with ice cold takes on Double Or Nothing.

    Chris' weekend dance cards are starting to fill up so we had to record before the week was up. We get to the revolving door of WWE play by play, John Cena's accidental entry into world affairs, and we give predictions of AEW's Double or Nothing

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.
