That Wrestling Podcast Episode 38

This episode is about Sunday’s Royal Rumble. We discuss what was good and what was bad about the show. That means covering Batista’s victory, Sheamus’s return, Bray Wyatt’s attack on John Cena, the WWE championship match, and, of course, the treatment of Daniel Bryan. But which category, good stuff and bad stuff, will these things fall into.

Since the Rumble CM Punk has apparently left WWE. I wouldn’t acknowledge that here (yet) but we discuss him during this podcast too. We both agreed he would wrestle Kane at Elimination Chamber. Technically, technically, that could still happen. Both men are under contract and physically capable of wrestling but, well, it’s not likely.

Batista's going to WrestleMania. And he's going there in his invisible car
Basically grin and bear any bits with CM Punk. There’s as much interest to be found in them as there is in anything else in any of these podcasts, and it may become relevant again.

Also discussed are WWE’s long term plans for Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania. We covers the matches and storylines we expect to see on both as well as what we see as the rights and wrongs of pushing the likes of Batista, Randy Orton, Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns. We even briefly discuss Ryback v Goldberg.

For a more extensive report on what actually happened at the Rumble and on the following night’s RAW you can read my reviews here and here.
