    STR. JAS is the DudLine

    News on the death of Antonio Inoki broke as we went to air, so even though he might not be in our wheelhouse, we do have a nice discussion. After that we talk ticket sales and signings, then the LAZY RIVER OF WRESTLING CRITICISM, a lot of talk on Jericho, the Saraya promo and all that was wrong about it, crowd shaming when its the company not doing its job, the body language of Yuta, the awesomeness of Bandido, and MORE! Plus, Jeff does the unthinkable and criticizes Aunt Pam.

    STR. Homecoming

    STR. Homecoming

    Nov is traveling, filling in is the creator of Shake Them Ropes, Rob McCarron (@RobFromIndiana). We talk the end of NXT 2.0, his feelings on the state of play in the business, and just meander a bit on the LAZY RIVER OF WRESTLING CRITICISM. Rob also has the first question someone in that scrum should have asked Tony Khan that nobody has asked (not a bit, this is a legit great question).

    STR. The Punk Scene

    STR. The Punk Scene

    This week, the guys start with a new sponsor before going into the "Fall Out from All Out" and we go into Punk, Page, Tony, The Bucks, Kenny, the locker room and Larry the Dog. The LAZY RIVER OF WRESTLING CRITICISM sort of pales in comparison, but there was a lot of good wrestling, where we praise Sheamus and Gunther, Meiko and Roxanne, Carmelo and Ricochet. Plus, Jeff's Kiana James theory.

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.
