The Only Place to Be in Your Pop Culture World
Join us for all-day discussion plus commentary for RAW tonight. Some audio highlights from our feeds:
What’s on deck for Raw tonight?
Triple threat match with Joe, Reigns, and Strowman.
Nice, probably Strowman wins to tease him as the winner for SS? I only say that because I assume Reigns or Joe is winning in Brooklyn.
Also a Miz TV with Jason Jordan probably setting up a Summerslam IC Title Match with them.
Addison Reed to the Red Sox for 3 prospects.
I have a 2-4pm meeting where I won’t really be able to check my phone, worst possible day for it. Hoping Gray gets traded before that.
Ah another of my fantasy closers ($1), who will most likely be paid to close elsewhere next year, but now have little value for the rest of ’17
O/U when he needs season-ending surgery? My guess is August 15th.
It’s time to feel the heat of SummerSlam! This coming Sunday night (August 6) we will have a live watch in our Daily Discussion Thread on the website. You get to decide what show we watch.

Would like some thoughts on the newest Jeff Learns Wrestling from those that have checked it out!
Viewing for July 30th:
5/27/17 Chikara – MISSILE. ASSAULT. MAN. vs. Oleg the Usurper
Chikara works the best when it combines the in-ring components (MAM working on points for championship, Oleg’s evolving relationship with Kobald) with its massive overarching angles. In this case, The Whisper comes out to meet with MAM after the match, and those reading the message boards know that they have a past with Titor Conglomerate. Surprisingly hard-hitting match.
Steve what is your Chikara show of the year so far?
I’m assuming it will be the JKI.
Bad Wolf overall was the best show, terrible management of the crowd notwithstanding. I also enjoyed “Blink,” the show that Glenn attended. It had a lot of quirky goings on that made it stand apart.
I’m biased toward The Empty Child since I was there. Otherwise, it might still be National Pro Wrestling Day, but I’ll be catching up on the JKI sometime this week and that has a ton of potential.
The anniversary show was really good top to bottom
That’s the one I’m working through. They should continue bringing in one or two old regulars for these shows to fill them out.
I liked Ashley Vox’s fire at this show.
I just watched the Kojima/Okada match from 7/27 – went ***3/4, it’s quite fun with Okada in full heel mode against the old NJ guys.
It didn’t grip me as much as I wanted, perhaps due to either knowing the result going in, although i also thought some of the late match layout could have been even more dramatic (like the super cutter wasn’t a believable fall for me where it was placed. i am a dork).
I have fallen so hopelessly behind. I’m pretty sure that Chad went into a coma around day 6.
Chad is going strong, we’re just sparring the side chat the messages. PWO recaps are happening.
Ioan is a machine.
sparing* ; we’re not fighting each other in a sparring contest.
I already know I’m going to dislike Elgin/Omega so i’m frantically avoiding it and finding anything to do – even real work!
(note – dislike still means probably like 3.5 stars , but none of this MOTY 5 star nonsense. And I like Kenny, but i hate excess Kenny matches (not all are))
I don’t like the New Japan style.
Congrats on winning the AL East.
They didnt even have to make a trade to do that.
This is true.
Dustin Fowler is a part of the package headed to Oakland
Jorge Mateo, James Kaprielian and Dustin Fowler
Yanks got bonus pool money too
Love this trade, way better than I expected
Sounds like he’s getting the bump tomorrow night. CC, Tanaka and Serevino will be pushed backed a day
Severino is pitching tonight, right?
My bad, make that CC, Tanaka and Garcia
Darvish to LA
Pitching in that park will help.
Astros traded for Francisco Liriano
All the contenders are making moves. LAD got Cingrani too.
Indians got Joe Smith.
HBK says the Bx Bombers will be having lots of Sunny days ahead!
Dodgers may have just won the NL.
Was Brock advertised for tonight?
I’m not sure.
Brock going back to UFC?
Sounds like it’s possible…why announce the stipulation if he wasn’t?
Hey Todd Frazier, way to check in!
Nice win by the Hardys
I can’t decide if I really didn’t need to hear Michael Cole say the words “obsolete mule,” or if that’s all I’ve needed him to say in my life.
Graves worked in a “I have a premonition…”
Like that Matt is still doing the Broken gestures despite the gimmick being in indefinite limbo.
Just recorded a Kevin Nash pod blast with Greg… fun chat and an interesting case for sure given his relatively short run.
I like how 205 live tries to get as many people over as possible.
Love that damn show
I’m enjoying the Jason Jordan storyline.
Not a fan of his new music though.
Yeah he has taken well to it and Angle has been great. They should just go all in at SS and let him win the belt.
Oh I agree. I kindof hope he turns into how Ric Flair was protecting David Flair in wcw.
Just getting caught up but I’m looking forward to Ambrose and rollins vs cesaro and Sheamus at summerslam not sure what the rest of the tag division is going to do maybe a number 1 contenders multi team match.
That’s the vibe I am getting. The revival kept saying on commentary that they should be number one contenders.
Came here to post this haha. It’s hilarious
I wish we weren’t past Father’s Day
they could have done a video like they did with Titus O’Neil last year and have Kurt playing with Jason talking about how it takes a real man to be a father.
I cannot wait until the fatal 4 way at summerslam.
Gonna be the hoss fest of our dreams.
I think it’s shaping up to be a very solid show and I’m excited for it but I feel like it doesn’t have a lot of buzz maybe I’m wrong and we still have 3 weeks of build.
Who does everyone think walks out of summerslam as the universal champ? I’m
Going with Joe.
Joe or Reigns… welp, Reigns wins here so maybe not. Yeah Joe.
I’m also going Joe but here is a follow up question who does a feud with coming out of summerslam Braun reigns or someone else?
I think Reigns is going to win it at some point so he can fight Cena at Mania, so maybe Reigns beats him at Survivor Series?
I wonder if Brock negotiated an early release and that is why they are burning off his dates.
I thought Brock was just going to do another one off fight like last year against Hunt and then come back to wwe for mania. I’m prob wrong like you said they could be getting all his dates in so he can leave after summerslam
Yeah that may be the deal, one last match at Mania maybe?
Hopefully it’s vs Braun! I want to see that.
I’d love that as well
Brock vs reigns again they can both say they are the only guys to defeat taker at mania roman can talk about the fact that taker came back after losing to Brock after reigns beat him taker is never coming back.
I really think we are getting Reigns/Cena. They have to do it before Cena is done.
Yeah don’t want another Cena vs taker where they never end up doing it at mania
Warwick Saupold is a hell of a baseball name.
To me he looks like Morton downy to me. I may be way off, but that’s all I see when I look at him.
Looks like no more Sampson for Elias.
Wonder if more releases are to come like in 2013 when Langston and Antonio were both let go.
Nia looked liked she killed Bayley right there.
Big spot for Enzo

So fire up this action-packed episode and join Scott, Justin & Kelly as it’s time for another edition of the PTB Podcast!
Pretty good RAW tonight. Interesting they dropped the hint of Brock possibly leaving if he loses at Summerslam. Makes me wonder if that’s it for him instead of next year if he doesn’t stick around. Either way im pretty excited for the 4 way in a couple of weeks.
The first two hours of RAW were okay but that third hour was rough. And Jason Jordan doesn’t have the chops to pull off this role. The crowd doesn’t care.
