Basketball and wrestling, that’s what Dave Schilling does! Mike and Dave talk about why Dave left The Masked Man Show and what being a Bleacher Report writer-at-large means (4:29), what he expects from LeBron and the Lakers this season (12:04), how Dave would book SummerSlam (25:25), and finish up with a very Sasha Banks-heavy Fun Five (44:48).
It’s one of my favorite events of the year: WWE’s SummerSlam. To get prepped, I dialed up Rob Wolkenbrod to chat some wrestling. Rob runs the Daily DDT website for FanSided, Time Inc’s division of fan-generated content. We discussed what it’s like to run a site with 30+ contributors, how to stand out in a crowded WWE market, and made our SummerSlam predictions.
Excuse the stuffy nose. I was getting over a cold, but after Finn Balor won the Universal Championship with a separated shoulder at last year’s SummerSlam, I wasn’t taking the episode off.
It’s my favorite podcast out there and I was so stoked to tape this one. Stat Guy Greg from Grantland’s “Cheap Heat” comes on the show to talk about how he got the gig and what it’s like behind the scenes. We preview the SummerSlam and NXT cards, and he answers whether he’d rather spend WrestleMania weekend with only Rosenberg or only Shoemaker.
