Raising the Briefcase No. 20 – Brand Split Personalities

the-miz-and-maryse-28934343-620x400First of all, apologies for the long delay between podcasts.

Second of all, sorry for the technical issues. You may notice a rapid beeping during certain parts of the show, and while we tried to eliminate them, it was to no avail. We hope to have them sorted out by the next time we come to you.

Anyway, we talk about TNA for way longer than we ever have, break down the brand split, make some No Mercy predictions that will be old by the time you listen to this, talk lovingly about The Miz and the glory of Smackdown, and listen to Dave tell us a horrible story about a sandwich.

Come and be entertained as we discuss the many, many, many belts of WWE.

 

Raising the Briefcase No. 18 – Wrestakeovermania Dallas Podtacular

Sasha-Banks-Charlotte-Becky-Lynch

It’s here, whether you want it or not. The podcast, naturally, you want, but Wrestlemania 32 is here, preceded by its scrappy younger sibling, NXT Takeover: Dallas. Will it be like this past summer, when the success of Takeover: Brooklyn overshadowed the larger Summerslam, or does the grandaddy of them all have a few more tricks up its wily sleeve?

The Kings of Cast break down both cards in agonizing detail, and, hopefully, entertain you along the way in another one of their marathon jaw-jacking sessions.

Raising the Briefcase No. 17 – Everything is Terrible Forever

Daniel Bryan Retirement Image
Oh Captain, My Captain.

Well, maybe not forever. Still, things look grim as the boys talk about the retirement of Daniel Bryan and express his importance in their wrestling lives, the re-rise of Roman Reigns, the return of the Mac, why Undertaker would want to kill Shane-O in the first place, and how NXT Takeover: Dallas is almost certainly going to be better than Wrestlemania. Also, Ivan goes on a bit of a rant about how awesome Lucha Underground is.

Note: Lucha Underground is now available on iTunes if you’d like to watch it and don’t get El Rey Network. Support this incredible wrestling product!

Raising the Briefcase No. 15 – (Hardly Any) Teams of Five Strive to Survive!

Reigns and Ambrose

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!

Raising the Briefcase No. 14 – The Next John Cena

Bayley and Izzy

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!

Raising the Briefcase No. 11 – OWENSWINSLOL

After several months MIA, the Kings of Cast (well, two of them) return to discuss the incredible changes that have taken place since Summerslam. Kevin Owens cleanly defeats the face of the company? The New Day is must-watch television? Damien Sandow is being horrifically wasted again? What is this world?! Plus, Dean Ambrose, potential Money in the Bank winners, madness on Lucha Underground and the potential demise of TNA. It’s quite a show, and we do it out of love. Or out of Matt’s kitchen.

Raising the Briefcase No. 10 – Briefcase of the Immortals

seth rollinsAfter what turned out to be quite a Wrestlemania, Ivan, Dave, and Matt sat down and talked for an exhaustive amount of time about the show and the implications thereof.  The best part of the podcast is how Ivan starts out by saying that this won’t be a typical long podcast, and it turns out to be super, super long.  Still, there’s a lot of entertainment here, and if you’re looking for funny and insightful wrestling discussion, you’ve come to the right place.

Raising the Briefcase No. 6 – Coming Off the Mountain

Roman Reigns’s injury is Dean Ambrose’s gain, Dolph Ziggler attempts to ascend the babyface ladder, Brock Lesnar is still on muscular viking sabbatical, and WWE apparently only has five main guys capable of being in the main event.  Join the Kings of Cast for more in-depth discussion of our beloved fake sport.

Raising the Briefcase No. 4 – Meet the New Champ, Same as the Old Champ

Cena shrugs in victory!
“What, me change or evolve?”

John Cena is champion again, shocking no one…but Chris Jericho is back!  But Daniel Bryan is still horribly injured…but AJ Lee is back!  Bad News Barrett got some bad news…but the Miz is back!  Can the returns of beloved (or in the Miz’s case, beloved only by Matt) superstars make up for the disappointments all around us?  Tune in to find out.

Recorded on July 5, 2014.

Raising the Briefcase No. 3 – Releases and the Hounds

JTG
Never forget.

Wow, this episode ended up being pretty long.  Still, there’s not much downtime in this shockingly full show.  The guys discuss the eleven released WWE employees (NOT JTG!), Stardust, the break-up of The Shield, potential Money in the Bank winners, and debuting Matt’s new favorite segment, The Rusev Report!
