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. 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. 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. 13 – New Day Rocks

The-New-Day-WWE-665x385The Kings of Cast are back with a new wrasslin’ show to discuss a massive weekend of delightful playfighting. Ivan nearly cries over Sasha Banks vs. Bayley at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn, Matt tears into the Bella Twins, and Dave luckily doesn’t mention the possibility of Fandango: future world champion. Also, per the title, everyone swoons over how The New Day has gone from an unfortunate situation for three talented guys into the most entertaining part of any show. It’s a typically long show, with a ton to talk about, so dive right in!

 

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. 9 – Before the Reigns Come

brock-lesnar-wwe-champion-paul-heymanBrock is sticking around, having turned down UFC for three more years in the WWE.  Reigns says he can, and he will, but the biggest question is whether or not he should.  Ivan and Dave spend some time talking about NXT and the current state of WWE before diving headlong into Wrestlemania predictions.  Excitement is…tempered, but still there.  Wrestlemania is this Sunday, people.  Let’s get good and disappointed!
