The PWA Show: Choosing Sides…..


Episode 46 finds Chad & Keila examining the confusing state of WWE storylines leading into this Sunday’s TLC PPV. Why are The Wyatt Family, a heel faction, picking a fight with The League of Nations, another heel stable? Why is the babyface WWE Divas Champion, Charlotte, suddenly displaying heelish tactics in her feud against Paige who had made this rivalry very personal with some of her previous comments? Why do The New Day continue to be playful, lovable, entertaining babyfaces even though they are heels? Pick a side people! It’s no wonder ratings for RAW are the lowest since the mid-90s era of cartoonish gimmicks which saw clowns, plumbers, and garbage men compete inside a WWE ring. The PWA Mailbag is once again opened and some listener mail is read. These questions cover several interesting topics including forgotten and under appreciated factions, which wrestling personality would make a great podcast host, and what old school booking tools have been eliminated from the arsenal of today’s wrestling presentations. Chad and Keila also make a huge announcement about an exciting opportunity coming their way very soon. Don’t miss this thrill packed edition of The PWA Show, YOUR pro wrestling authority.

The Mental Ward: Independently Evolving…..


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.”

Glam Slam: NXT (4-29-15) & WWE Smackdown (4-30-15)


Hi guys! Welcome to this week’s edition of The Glam Slam! Let’s check out all the action from NXT and WWE Smackdown from last week!

NXT (4/29/15)

Kevin Owens comes down and gets a handful of boos. Out comes William Regal, who tells Kevin he doesn’t get to use NXT as a platform to further his own agenda. Owens says he didn’t call out Mr. Regal so he doesn’t really care what he has to say. Eventually Sami Zayn comes out, but Regal stops him and says tonight won’t turn into a circus like last week. He says this is the easiest decision he’s ever had to make, and books Kevin Owens –vs- Sami Zayn for the NXT Championship at NXT Takeover on May 20th. Owens has a problem with it being a title match. Zayn gets on the mic and says everything Kevin has done throughout his career, and anything he ever will do has an asterisk next to it with the name “Sami Zayn” on it.

Jax takes listeners on a journey throughout his career from his humble beginnings in the rural Tennessee farm town of Bakewell, to his early tag team success with current ROH superstar Raymond Rowe, his partnership with “Ironman” Rob Conway, what its like touring Japan, making history recently by unifying two of the NWA’s most prestigious titles, and his future goal of becoming the NWA World Heavyweight Champion.

Kashin In: The Olé! Olé! Olé! Edition (5-4-2015)


Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Ka$hin In with Keila Ca$h. Tonight’s episode of Raw emanated from the Belle Centre in Montreal, Quebec. Whenever WWE travels to Canada, things tend to get crazy. The crowd is usually hot and very opinionated. Heels become faces for a night and vice versa. It’s quite the spectacle that will not bore me to tears. Or did it? The answer to that question can be found throughout this blog. Without further ado, let’s dissect tonight’s episode of Raw in no particular order.

Enzo Amore & Collin Cassidy Defeated Sawyer Fulton & Angelo Dawkins. As always these guys brought the energy and fun to NXT. Although not a very good match there’s no better way to kick off NXT than with these guys!
