By god almighty! The Prodigal Son returns!
Back with a greater comeback than even Shawn Michaels in 2002, Matt is fresh off his move to Bizarre-o-land, The Centre of the Universe, the 6ix, T-Dot, TO, Toronto, Ontario...Canada, and ready to deliver some excting BWP Action. Speaking of Shawn Michaels--surely he wouldn't spoil a legendary comeback for a one-off tag match in Saudi Arabia would he? Wellllll (TM Road Warrior Hawk), Johnathan has some thoughts on that if you check out:https://www.sportskeeda.com/wwe/shawn-michaels-should-not-spoil-his-storybook-retirement. But back to Matt Fitzgerald Version 1.0--never one to shy away from sharing his true thoughts, Matt dishes on (or SHOOTS HARD as the cool kids say) on the recent Hell in a Cell pay per view, the upcoming international super shows, and the comings and goings of Raw and SmackDown Live. -- Follow us!

Raw and SmackDown Have Great Hell in a Cell Go-Home Episodes
This podcast is loaded with, as the New Day would call it, the "Power of Positivity". Kevin Owens provided some sound reasoning for his actions on Raw, while elsewhere the Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns feud led to FactionMania running wild (brother...brother...dude, brother, brother.) Meanwhile on Smackdown Live, AJ and Samoa Joe seethe the fury of a thousand fires. I'll explain why I've been enjoying their feud with one small exception, and I'll tell you who needs to win the match, as well as who needs to win the Hell in a Cell match between Randy Orton and Jeff Hardy. -- Follow us...maaaaaannn Twitter: @realbwpodcastInstagram: @bestwrestlingpodcast Best Wrestling Podcast is available wherever you get your audio sports entertainment, including iTunes, Spotify, Podbean, and Stitcher.

Stone Cold Steve Austin in WWE - Part 1
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. -- Best Wrestling Podcast is proud to be on the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB Financial.

The Ballad of Paul Heyman and CM Punk
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.
