Join BWP as we get you ready for WWE Elimination Chamber. The NETWORK SPECIAL will no doubt shape Wrestlemania, and should feature some tremendous wrestling.

We give the most thorough preview of the Men’s Chamber you’re going to find in the podcast world. We make our picks for the wrestler who will win the match and go on to face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title. We also predict the order of eliminations.

From there, we discuss how the results for each competitor tonight will influence and shape their road to Wrestlemania. Hear what we think the show of shows has in store for Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, John Cena, Finn Balor, Elias, Braun Strowman, and the Miz.

Plus, hear what we think will go down when Ronda Rousey signs her WWE contract, and who we think will take the first ever Women’s Elimination Chamber!

Raw is GAUNTLET

GAUNTLET MANIA is running wild! We break down the historic, longest-ever WWE match, which beyond breaking records also had some big-time implications as it pertains to the current state of affairs on RAW.

Seth Frickin’ Rollins! He was the babiest baby face to ever baby face last night. He made ‘94 Bret Hart and ‘96 Shawn Michaels look like tweeners by comparison. We talk his huge, star-making night, and what his future might hold.

On the flip side, we discuss how John Cena had a night of...HEELING, Loyalty, Respect?!

Finn Balor, Elias, and Braun Stroman. The Balor Club kinda bored us. Matt will walk to the ends of the earth with Elias. And BRAAAUUUUUNNNNN was kinda PREDIIIICCCCTABLLLE.

All this and much more on BWP! We’ve only just begun.

It's Valentine's Day--what better day for hosts Matt Fitzgerald and Johnathan McDonald to talk about something of the things they love in the world of wrestling, both past and present, and both in WWE and WCW.

 
Matt tells us which classic series of WWF vignettes he looved, and it's hard to argue against his choice, chico.
 
Johnathan tells us which commentary team he loooved, and maybe a little surprisingly, it's not JR and the King.
 
Matt gives a self-high five and tells us which WCW WRASSLER he looooved, while Johnathan absolutely loooooves a certain pay-per-view opener above all the others.
 
Share in the love, and join us for Best Wrestling Podcast!
