The Raw brand is back in pay per view form with the annual Hell in a Cell event. It’s set for Sunday and features an unprecedented three HIAC matches. Kevin Owens defends the WWE Universal championship against Seth Rollins, Rusev attempts to regain the U.S. championship from Roman Reigns and Sasha Banks clashes with Charlotte for the Raw Women’s title. That match is the first time the ladies have wrestled in a cell.
Chad and I break down the event as it stands so far. Who should main event? Are three cell matches necessary? Will Sheamus and Cesaro end the New Day’s 400+ tag team title reign?
Through the years I’ve made a lot of friends in the world of professional wrestling. Shane Rich and I met in 2011 during the All American Pro Wrestling days. Shane is that company’s former heavyweight champion.
He’s also a veteran, which is the inspiration behind the new promotion he’s starting; Warrior’s Code Wrestling. The first show is Saturday, June 11 at Christopher (IL) First Baptist Church. Bell time is 7 p.m. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Disabled American Veterans.
In this episode I also talk more about the passing of Muhammad Ali and the impact he had on wrestling and why I think he’s induction into the WWE Hall of Fame is long overdue.
Ten years ago Chad and I attended our first WrestleMania. We made a road trip to Chicago for a weekend of wrestling that included a Ring of Honor show, the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony and WrestleMania 22.
For me, it was a dream come true. I was content with that one trip. But I also knew if the opportunity came up again I wanted to go. Luckily for me, it came up again and again and again. Chad and I have have been to eight of the last ten WrestleManias. We’re heading to Texas next month for our 11th.
In this episode of the show we talk about our favorite memories and moments. It’s not just about the ‘Mania. It’s the fun in getting to each destination, the other events we attend and of course the WrestleMania atomsphere.
