Holy heck, a new podcast! And it’s only been four months.
In this intrepid installment, the Kings of Cast discuss the unlikely ascension of Jinder Mahal, Smackdown’s diminishing of great stars, and the importance of characters worth watching in wrestling. Finally, we run through the cards for NXT: Takeover Brooklyn III and Summerslam, both taking place in our very backyard of New York City!
Matt was right. We should have gone right into the card instead of talking about what other nonsense was on our minds.
The Kings of Cast break down every match for Takeover: Orlando and Wrestlemania 33 in excruciating detail, while also taking a little time to discuss Lucha Underground, racism in wrestling, and how Sunday night is the most important night in Bray Wyatt’s career.
It’s January, so you know what that means! The Royal Rumble is upon us, and even though we’ve been crushingly disappointed the last few years, that doesn’t mean that we’ll feel the same way this year, right? Right? Someone please tell us that it will all be okay.
Anyway, the guys talk a bit about the best and worst of 2016, the WWE UK Championship Tournament, and what in the wide wide world of sports is going to happen in the most unpredictable rumble in ages.
While we may be celebrating 25 years of the Undertaker, it certainly doesn’t feel that way. The Deadman feels like a bit of an afterthought this year, while the new WWE World Heavyweight Championship tournament has taken center stage. As it comes to a head tonight, the Kings of Cast discuss the injury of Seth Rollins, predict the winner of Survivor Series (it’s Roman Reigns, silly!), wonder about the future of Tyler Breeze, and make a failed reference to Schrodinger’s Cat. Enjoy and tell your friends!
A few hours before Hell in a Cell begins, listen to the Kings of Cast break down the card! They also gush about Takeover: Respect, wonder if they’ve we’ve witnessed Sting’s final match, create the Wyatt Family Jugband Jamboree, and decide who the next John Cena is. The answer, of course, is his Latino cousin, Juan Cena.
Alternatively, listen to the show AFTER Hell in a Cell, and see how wrong we were. The choice is yours! People Power!
