The Mental Ward: I Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore…..

MW

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.”

Lordy Lordy Look Who’s 40…..

Kashin In: The Shield is Reunited (Temporarily) And it Feels So Good Edition (10-19-2015)

raw

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Ka$hin In with Keila Ca$h. Tonight’s episode of Raw emanated from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. It’s the go-home for Hell in a Cell. WWE is in desperation mode as ratings have hit record lows over the past month. The product has been stagnate. When times get tough, they call in the reinforcements. Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, and Ric Flair have been tasked to save the day by putting a little hot sauce on The Undertaker-Brock Lesnar rivalry which culminates inside Hell in a Cell is this Sunday. Did they give fans a reason to care about this match without droning on and on via a lame back and forth roundtable discussion? 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.

The PWA Show: Old School Is Cool…..

Horsemen

Chad & Keila come to you with this week with the final episode of their 30s focusing heavily on the current state of the WWE. The duo discuss the recent NXT special and the future stars working on that brand. They also cover in great detail this past week’s RAW. John Cena turns in another solid performance defending the United States Title in front of a Chicago crowd that’s more worried about chanting something snarky than actually enjoying the show. Chad approves of the way Braun Strownman has been presented thus far while Keila gets a little upset at the Chi-town crowd for their chants toward Bray Wyatt. The continued misuse of WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins, is a topic yet again this week as he suffered another non-title loss on Monday. WWE’s search for their next big Latino star is also examined. Are they only looking to appeal to the large Hispanic population in response to the lowest TV ratings in almost 20 years? The lackluster build to what should be an important PPV in Hell In A Cell also leaves them scratching their proverbial heads. WWE has loaded up the go home edition of RAW next week so all hope is not quite lost just yet. The PWA Mailbag returns as listener questions are answered. Topics include the debacle that has become the Lana/Rusev/Summer Rae/Dolph Ziggler storyline with Lana announcing via Instagram that her and Rusev are officially engaged. Talk then turns to proper use of social media with Chad praising Kevin Owens for his use of Twitter to further his on screen persona rather than joining his modern counterparts and dancing on the grave of kayfabe. Which legend doesn’t get enough credit as one of the all-time greats? Apparently royalty doesn’t ensure immortality in the world of professional wrestling. Old school territories are also covered as Chad fields a question concerning which regional promotions were the most financially successful back in the day. The 29 year anniversary of the near fatal car crash that ended the career of Magnum TA is also discussed as it relates to a great article found at thepwashow.com this week. It’s a little bit of something old with a helping of something new this week on Episode 39 of The PWA Show, YOUR pro wrestling authority!

The PWA Show: Good Guys Wear White…..

Rollins

Episode 36 of our podcast finds Chad & Keila with plenty of thoughts about WWE Night of Champions as well as this past Monday’s edition of RAW. What did the duo like about the pay per view? What drove them nuts? What creative direction do they see things heading for the future? Chad talks at length about the way WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins, has been booked during his title reign. The difference between being a beatable heel and a week excuse for a champion is a fine line that WWE has crossed at times with Rollins always seemingly losing non-title matches particularly to John Cena as of late. Is there a method to this madness or is WWE Creative killing the golden goose? Keila rejoices at Paige’s apparent heel turn, Natalya’s homecoming, as well as the crowning of new WWE Divas Champion, Charlotte, and what all those things may mean for the future of the Divas division. Brocktober is covered as WWE is making everything about the Beast Incarnate next month on the road to Hell in a Cell and a third clash with The Undertaker. Is this a desperate attempt to spike sagging ratings or just smart business? The sudden lovefest from WWE directed at one Eric Bischoff is discussed as well with possible motives for this surprising development examined. The renewal of Lucha Underground is also discussed and what it may mean for free agent talents in the near future. Our roving reporter, Halfpint, also checks in with some great coverage of last weekend’s NWA Southern All-Star Wrestling event from Cookeville, TN. He managed to catch up with several key players in that event including NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Jax Dane, “The Ironman” Rob Conway, Southern Tag Team Champions Hammerjack and Jernigan AKA Monsters of Mayhem, and more! This episode truly has something for every wrestling fan so get comfy, push play, and enjoy The PWA Show, YOUR pro wrestling authority!

Kashin In: The Sting Babysits Seth Rollins’ Statue Edition (9-7-2015)

RAW

Hello everyone and welcome to the Labor Day Edition of Ka$hin In with Keila Ca$h. Tonight’s episode of Raw emanated from the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland. As we bid farewell to the summer, it’s time that we focus on the fall season. It’s a time for new beginnings. A time for new rivalries to emerge. It’s WWE’s chance not to rest on their laurels as they wait for 2015 to end and 2016 to begin to kick off WrestleMania season. That has been their M.O. for the past few years and one can only hope that history doesn’t repeat itself this.
