Could you please try again, using more than four words? I think you may have confused "toeing the company line" with "kayfabe." There was plenty of non-kayfabe stuff - not necessarily worth devoting a post to, but nonetheless mildly interesting. (Kinda like #RAW, which is probably why we don't have THAT thread either.)

John Cena is the very embodiment of #humblebrag.

The podcast was fine on its own. Lot of light-hearted banter, and overall it was enjoyable. But it suffered tremendously because it was being promoted as "if you liked Stone Cold's hard-hitting podcast, then you're gonna love this one." Compared to Austin's, this was boring. I think there were high expectations, and it fell a little short. But Jericho seemed to really like it. So, it was the "Jericho/RVD at KOTR 2002" of podcasts.

I think the most important takeaway is that Chris Jericho and I have have same taste in scarves.

I'm sure that scarf would look better on you. It's got to look better than it looked on him. I was fairly certain this wasn't something I should spend an hour watching all along, but I was out as soon as I saw that scarf.

SCSA's were avails the next Monday.

Cena made a massive mistake not picking Tajiri, Ultimo, Funaki, and the strongest Basham for his most recent Survivor Series team.

They would not have tolerated being left for dead by Cena while the Authority attacked them.

I just want to take the time to note that John Cena does a pretty awesome Michael Hayes impersonation.

The big takeaway I got here was that the early 2000s OVW was sure stacked and it had me thinking that the current NXT class is right up there with them. Are Zayn, Neville, Owens, and Balor going to be every bit as good as Cena, Orton, Lesnar, and Batista? They certainly have the potential, just as long as the creative team doesn't let them down. And...now I'm sad.

Also, John Cena saying the whole "Face of the WWE" idea is out the window because of fan reactions is one of the most disingenuous things I've ever heard him say. Hearing Cena go on about how fans won't back guys like Reigns while conveniently ignoring the discarded fan reactions for guys like Bryan, Ryder, and Cesaro. The whole thing just hit a sour note with me.

Yeah, a lot of this could have been replaced with Cena reading a press release. There was very little "real" stuff in this interview, outside of a couple of mildly entertaining road stories. This was fluff, plain and simple. Fun enough, but nobody's missing anything.

It's a shame that you left early. You missed out on Jericho fawning over young Cena's vascularity. Also, Jericho told a hilarious story about the one time he and John were getting their drink on in a hotel bar in Alaska. It was so funny because during their drinking time, they overheard a couple arguing. Things weren't going too well, remember John? Remember the couple? And then John went over and took them both to a separate room for counseling. It was so funny! Unless "counseling" is a euphemism for "intercourse", that was one of the worst drinking stories I've heard.

It's still strange to me to hear phrases like "going over" and "turning heel" on a WWE produced program. Especially one that airs right after RAW, where kayfabe is kept.

That said, I'd watch more of these.

Jericho says no, Jericho Live! is a different product separate from Talk Is Jericho (I'm guessing that is probably the Austin/Vince issue).

I think part of this may be due to Jericho isn't hurting for content for his twice weekly Podcast to the extent that Austin does. TIJ is usually good for a good guest for each show, where Austin's seems to need to go the route of taking listener questions, and using filler with his wife and friend to churn out episodes.

Austin was on a roll for awhile with "good" guests until all the filler episodes started pouring in. I wonder how many downloads those get btw. I guess he has a lot of fans who are happy to listen to him talk about rats on his ranch (the rodent kind, not the ring kind), Hersey the WonderDog, and L.A. Traffic, but I imagine that would get old after awhile. As with all other podcasts, I only listen to the ones with guests I'm interested in and I usually FFWD through all the rambling at the beginning.

I also wonder why Steve has such a hard time finding guests, especially considering 90% of his interviews are done over the phone.

It did for me and is why I stopped listening.

These funny little slices of life started becoming the main focus of the show.

For no other reason than this comment made me wistful for the days of some great Jim Cornette booking of some tremendous talent I poked around the old Slash Wrestling archives to view a few of my old recaps of OVW from around that era with "The Prototype" (John Cena), "Leviathan" (Batista) and Brock Lesnar as part of an incredible tag team with Shelton Benjamin (The Minnesota Stretching Crew). That was truly the best wrestling show on at that time, much like NXT is these days. Hopefully the new blood that's been coming from there will make similar impacts to the ones a lot of those OVW guys from that era did then (and still do today). Still have about 4yrs of OVW on VHS tapes I should probably convert them to DVD since I have no idea if these would ever show up on the WWE Network...
