Raising the Briefcase No. 24 – Let Loose the Games of War

While this episode will be too late for NXT Takeover War Games, the Kings of Cast take the opportunity to discuss the match as concept and whether older wrestling is any good (Matt says no, which is why we don’t like him).  We also perform a post-mortem of the first-ever Jinder Mahal title reign and break down what, if anything, worked. Additionally, praise is given to Johnny Gargano and Andrade Almas, Shane McMahon is shown to be the villain he is, and we spend a little time figuring out which teams of five will strive to survive.

Note: Due to some technical issues, this episode contains no musical intro or outro. Furthermore, Ivan’s mic apparently cut out

Enjoy!

Raising the Briefcase No. 23 – Indian Summer

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!

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!
