Episode 147: The Roman Reigns Murder Train
We went through a lot of effort to bring you this episode. The Wyandotte Street Fair took away all of our parking at the studio. It was hectic, it was a hassle. But we are professionals, god damn it. We make things happen. We are the standard bearers of this industry.
Uh, sorry about the weird pro wrestling promo I just cut in the blog description. This episode is absolutely jam-packed, so here’s a quick break down.
Kaz hates Aleister Black. Well, hate is a strong word. Hell, he doesn’t actually dislike him. We get to the bottom of what NXT needs to do to fix Aleister Black and make him something other than “the guy that sits cross-legged and kicks the shit out of people.”
Speaking of NXT, there’s a lot of moving parts in NXT. But for whatever reason, the product seems to be stale and uninspired. The singles division seems oversaturated with talent, but there’s no discernible midcard division, the women’s division is in trouble when Asuka leaves, and the tag division is basically two teams. What can be done to make NXT fun again?
ROMAN’S AN ASSHAT
Roman Reigns lost an Ambulance Match to Braun Strowman by essentially throwing himself into the ambulance. Instead of taking the loss and just moving on to Summerslam, Roman decided to be a sore loser and attempt to murder Braun for being smarter than him. Roman explained the situation away by saying “The Attitude Era made me do it” and he was somehow absolved of any wrong doing. This sort of thing makes the on-screen figure heads look like total dweebs. How can James Ellsworth get suspended for interfering in a no-DQ match and Roman Reigns get a f*cking after attempted murder?! None of that makes any sense. It makes such little sense to the point that it’s actually hard to turn my brain off to how nonsensical it is.
Enjoy the episode and always remember to tuck your chin,
