Back to talk the week of wrestling that was, it can feel like the drama outside the ring can out do the drama inside it. That is, unless you missed the end of Smackdown Live this week. Rich and I talk about Randy Orton's disgusting act, and all the rest of the news from the TNA Impact Wrestling hemorrhaging talent to Fastlane predictions. Plus, we got to be right about a prediction from last week!

Topics:

  • TNA Impact losing it's biggest talents.
  • Congrats to Beth Phoenix for the Hall of Fame!
  • Congrats to us for calling it!
  • Jack Swagger, good luck in your future endeavors.
  • NXT Tag teams get ready for Orlando.
  • The NXT Women's division problem.
  • Main event resurgence in NXT?
  • Talking me into Miz/Maryse vs. John/Nikki.
  • That closing segment tho.
  • Fastlane predictions.

The NBA Trade deadline has come and gone and left me underwhelmed. We brought back Mike to break down the sleepy trade deadline, Ole Miss going full Ole Miss and more. Plus, we update our over/under predictions from episode 6, and celebrate cool collective nouns.

The Road to Wrestlemania rolls on as Rich and I say goodbye to some legends, but celebrate another reaching the pinnacle of the business. Dusty Rhodes said the only things real in wrestling are your first world title, and the Hall of Fame, and there aren't many more deserving than Diamond Dallas Page. We celebrate this deserving superstar, and  catch up with the week's WWE action as we head to the big show in Orlando.

Topics:

  • RIP George Steele and Ivan Koloff.
  • Congrats to DDP for the Hall of Fame!
  • New Day Host?
  • Kevin Owens. International treasure.
  • Raw Women's division getting interesting.
  • Braun Strowman is a monster.
  • Naomi relinquishes the belt.
  • Someone save American Alpha.
  • Battle Royal - Seeding Mania.
  • A brief spot of fantasy booking.

This is my fault. Wrestlemania is around the corner, and I realized that there wasn't going to be a lot of space on the main podcast to talk wrestling, so now you're getting a bonus WWE focused podcast for the Road to Wrestlemania. Fortunately, I was able to rope in Rich Fann from PWTorch's East Coast Cast to break down the week that was in pro wrestling.

Topics:

  • Rollins looking to be cleared for Mania.
  • Congrats to Teddy Long!
  • Kurt Angle potentially working matches.
  • Elimination Chamber recap.
  • Naomi's surprising win.
  • Lackluster SDL tag division.
  • God bless long term booking.
  • Joe: The Destroyer.
  • Directionless New Day.
  • Bayley getting her first title win.
  • Return of Kevin Owens.

Despite my best efforts, the events of February 5th remain in the news, so I hope you're all happy. Fortunately, Mo from Bleacher Report is an Eagles fan, with years of experience hating the Patriots. We talk his rapid ascent in the world of sports media, the travesty that is Terrell Owens not making the Hall of Fame, the coaching exodus in Atlanta post-Super Bowl, the life and times of Steve Sarkisian, Jabari Parker's knee, and LSU recruiting exploits. Oh, and we also celebrate the Falcons' short lived time as most dysfunctional franchise in sports because we talk ALL THINGS KNICKERBOCKER.

Emergency podcast to discuss the events of February 5th, 2017, and how the hell we got here. Want a stream of consciousness show where one man tries to make sense of the senseless? Then this is the episode for you! Hold on tight as this solo show takes a lap through either a historic meltdown, or a comeback for the ages.

  • Oh shut up.

So, this was originally scheduled to be a solo podcast, a chance for me to hype up myself for the Falcons big win Sunday*, but when you see Kriss banging on people over sports, you make room for him on the podcast. We talk a great number of things prior to breaking down the game, but make no mistake: this is a Super Bowl preview complete with predictions from friends of the show. Welcome to the John Lewis Bowl. Go Falcons.

*card subject to change

Topics:

  • Check me out dropping knowledge on the Five Questions Super Bowl roundtable.
  • Saying goodbye to an announcing legend Brent Musburger, while he announces his formal entry into public gambling.
  • Is Ronda done taking Instagram video length knock outs?
  • Serena da gawd.
  • National Signing Day. A little weird, right?
  • Baylor. Again. It gets worse and worse in Waco, and Betty DeVos wants to strip Title IX protections.
  • LeBron has had enough of Chuck's bullshit and so has Kriss.
  • Fuck Tom Brady.
  • Come lose money casually via prop bets! Including my favorite prop bet every year.
  • Over/Under and final score predictions from a host of friends of the show!

UDPod is back with a very special episode, where we sit down with the author of GQ's The Concussion Diaries, Reid Forgrave. We talk about his writing style, how he found Zac Easter's story in the first place, the remarkable unremarkableness of Zac's story, reactions to the piece, and what the hell to do next. Listen as we grapple with our mutual love for the sport and the creeping knowledge of what it does to the human body.

Deciding to bring in back up to cover the 30 man battle that is the Royal Rumble, we're joined by both Rich Fann of Pro Wrestling Torch and Sam Franco from 960 The Ref to take on ALL the sports entertainment news that's fit to print. We talk NJPW, AAA, NXT, WWE and everything in between. Lapsed fan? Casual fan? Hardcore smark? Wherever you fall, there's something for you in this show. Remember the Rumble? How could we forget?

Full disclosure: I was NOT ready for this podcast. I never considered in the planning that I could live in a world where not only are the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl, but that the Packers would get mollywopped along the way. Thankfully, I've got my dad back on to help me get through all these new and unfamiliar emotions. We also talk baseball HOF voting, college football players continuing to be screwed over, blowing up the Clippers and moving the Raiders.
