All these questions and more are answered this week. Chad also discusses his experience last weekend at the third annual Superstars of Wrestling Fanfest in Rome, GA hanging with WWE Hall of Famers Scott Hall, “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff, Ron Simmons, and other greats of the squared circle.

The Mental Ward: Welcome to the Boys Club…..

DIVAS

I first discovered pro wrestling in the mid-1980s. “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes doing battle with “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton inside a steel cage is one of my earliest wrestling memories. However, when I saw “Nature Boy” Ric Flair and Sting go 60 minutes at the first Clash of the Champions, I was hooked for life. THAT was storytelling. THAT was drama. THAT was pro wrestling. In my youth Hulkamania ran wild. In my high school and college years, The Attitude Era redefined the industry. In my adult years, things just haven’t been the same. A spark is missing. The sport I loved has morphed into something almost unrecognizable at times. Yet, I still watch. I cling to hope that pro wrestling will one day again return to past glory. Webster defines insanity as doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result. Ladies and gentlemen, come on in. We’re all friends here. Welcome back to, “The Mental Ward.”

The PWA Show: Bellabrating and Contemplating…..

NOC 2

Episode 35 comes to you this week with a Bellabration in progress! Chad & Keila discuss Nikki Bella becoming the longest reigning WWE Divas Champion in history. The duo also look at the very lackluster go home edition of Monday Night Raw that was supposed to whet our appetites for this weekend’s Night of Champions Pay Per View. How did WWE do in making us want to watch their big event Sunday? Jeff Jarrett’s deal with TNA is also examined as it becomes clear why Double J recently again entered into a working agreement with the struggling brand that he helped establish over a decade ago. The focus quickly turns again to talk of the upcoming Night of Champions. The PWA Drinking Game returns as Chad & Keila both give their thoughts, analysis, and predictions for the big event. Who do they believe will walk out of Houston wearing gold? Who will Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns recruit to help them battle the Wyatt Family? Will Nikki Bella’s diva dominance continue? All this and much more is contemplated during this festive edition of our show. So pour a glass of bubbly, put on your party hats, and let’s Bellabrate this week on The PWA Show, YOUR pro wrestling authority!

Kashin In: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the FedEx Forum Edition (9-14-2015)

RAW

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Ka$hin In with Keila Ca$h. Tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw emanated from the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee. It’s the season premiere of Raw. It’s a new season for new feuds, storylines, and compelling matchups. Insert sarcasm. Normally, WWE takes this time to pack their bags to say they have Gone Fishing until January. The company tends to wave the white flag as they surrender to ESPN’s Monday Night Football. It’s three months filled with boredom and laziness from the creative team for the most part. They might be inspired to conjure up something exciting for a week or two, but the hype won’t be sustained for long. Will things be different this year? That is a loaded question that will be answered in due time.

Kashin In: The Cheers to The Hot Rod Edition (8-3-2015)

RAW

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Ka$hin In with Keila Ca$h. Tonight’s episode of Raw emanated from The SAP Center in San Jose, California. Summerslam is a little under three weeks away and WWE is firing on all cylinders when it comes to their marquee matches featuring Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker and John Cena vs. Seth Rollins with the latter match being tentative due to Cena’s broken nose. The company is trying their best to market Summerslam on par with WrestleMania and I think that’s a very smart strategy because it gives fans a reason to look forward to the PPV if WWE is actually putting in the time and effort to make it feel like a must-see event.

Keila also shares her weekly words of wisdom with some sage advice for the WWE’s Divas division while Chad takes a few moments to remember  the late great “Nature Boy” Buddy Landel to close out the show. This is a short, sweet, and fun filled edition of The PWA Show, YOUR pro wrestling authority!

This week one half of the legendary Fantastics, Bobby Fulton, is the guest on “The PWA Hotseat”. He discusses his career, family, and faith. Bobby pulls no punches as he discusses his early days in the sport of pro wrestling, teaming with Eric Embry and Terry Taylor before finally being paired with Tommy Rogers in Mid-South Wrestling, memorable battles against the bloodthirsty Sheepherders and The Midnight Express, the state of the pro wrestling industry today, plus very candid thoughts on Vince McMahon and why he feels ripped off by the WWE Chairman.
