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!

Raising the Briefcase No. 22 – Wrestle-meh-nia

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.

Raising the Briefcase No. 21 – The Year That Was and the Year That Is

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.

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. 16 – Do Not Panic

Cena Shoulder surgery

Everything’s just fine. Sure, John Cena is injured. Randy Orton is injured. Seth Rollins is injured. And yes, Cesaro, Sting, Tyson Kidd, and others are hurt, and maybe Daniel Bryan will never wrestle for WWE again, but everything’s fine! What else do you need when you have Roman Reigns and his buddy Dean Ambrose to cheer for?

The Kings of Cast also discuss the rumored signing of a bunch of New Japan’s finest, two different views on Bayley vs. Nia Jax, who will win the Royal Rumble, and what racist gimmick Shinsuke Nakamura will receive.

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. 12 – The Passing of Giants

Rowdy Roddy Piper 4The Kings of Cast are back to discuss their memories of Dusty Rhodes and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, as well as perhaps the final fall of Hulk Hogan. They also take the time to discuss the rise of Cesaro, the awesomeness of The New Day, the Divas Revolution, and a whole lot more in one of their epic 2 1/2 Hour Podcast Spectaculars! Listen in, Briefcase Nation!

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. 8 – The Agony and the Ecstasy

Roman wins...LOL?
Roman wins…LOL?

First off, apologies for the audio issues, as well as for the moments where Dave is hard to hear.  This was recorded en route to the Royal Rumble and on the return trip, as we attend the show live and chat about the show itself, the backlash facing one Roman Reigns, Lucha Underground, and the awesomeness that is Seth Rollins.
