Debuting as the Ring Master, but soon becoming Stone Cold, Steve Austin fought his way to the top of WWE.

 
We'll explore how he was able to overcome some less than desirable early gimmicks, and how Bret "Hitman" Hart played a huge role in the rise of the rattlesnake.
 
Injuries would be a frequent theme of Austin's career, and perhaps the most notorious occurred at Summerslam 1997. We talk about the match, the injury, and how, somehow, Austin was able to find a golden lining in being unable to wrestle...and therefore spending more time on the microphone.

Randy Orton brings the pain to Jeff Hardy--we talk about how "PG" shouldn't be used as a crutch. 

 
Plus we talk about the WWE Title scene as SummerSlam approaches. Who will AJ Styles face, and will he walk out of the event as champion?
 
All that plus we put over Bobby Lashley, and speculate that he's passed a certain test from Vince McMahon.

The WWE has reinstated Hulk Hogan into the Hall of Fame, and to say that decision has produced polarizing reaction would be the understatement of the year. We give our thoughts on Hogan's reinstatement and discuss some other polarizing figures that remain in the Hall of Fame.

 
We also share our thoughts on Extreme Rules, or as its come to be known, ClockGate.
 
PLUS, is Bobby Lashley going to be the man who finally dethrones Brock Lesnar?
 
We are thrilled to be on the Alberta Podcast Network, and we welcome you to our latest offering of Audio Sports Entertainment.

Their careers would eventually become very intertwined, but in this episode of Best Wrestling Podcast (Powered by ATB Financial), we take a deep dive into some interesting, individual sagas that both promo powerhouses went through.

 
With Heyman, we discuss his unparalleled creativity, and try to elevate what we feel is his criminally low position on the greatest WWE commentators list. As you'll find out, him and Good Ol' JR had more chemistry than a Breaking Bad marathon being watched in a high school lab.
 
With the unique hindsight that his legal battles with WWE doctors provides, we re-analyze the CM Punk podcast, and make the case that his (many) complaints were, for the most part, pretty valid.

Brock Lesnar made his impact felt when he entered the octagon following DC’s UFC 226 victory.

While Lesnar is making waves in the ultimate fighting world, he continues to be silent when it comes to defending the Raw World title.

We question Brock’s future with WWE and if he will still be a wrestling champion when he challenges for the UFC championship.

It’s our first show for the Alberta podcast network and we are thrilled to have you along for the ride!

We kick things off with Matt talking about the oft-forgot, but totally awesome Vince McMahon segment that kicked off the WWF version of the NWO.

From there, we reminisce about the Invasion pay per view and all the WCW superstars that would eventually be a part of WWE...after the Invasion Angle had ended.

Plus we talk candidly, (or "shoot hard" as the cool kids say) about why it's time to pull the trigger on making Braun Strowman the top guy on Raw.

All this AND a huge, surprise announcement!
