Grizzly Redwood

With very special guest Grizzly Redwood gracing the presence of the good people at RRR, the boys were warmed by the littlest lumberjacks amazing story of struggle to success.

Question on Everybody's Mind: Did Ring Rust Radio actually do a professional interview?

The Ring of Honor star and Indy wrestling phenom truly has one of the best stories about being born premature and struggling to survive to being one of the better young wrestlers in the business.

Ring Rust Radio’s Take

Redwood was an absolute blast to talk with and was as down to earth as they come. We get into a serious conversation about his career and what it takes to not only break into the business, but stay there.

Elimination Chamber

After a lackluster amount of buildup, the haphazardly planned PPV was an utter disappointment. With that said, we knew that’s what was going to happen.

Question on Everybody's Mind: When’s WrestleMania?

From a poor ending to the CM Punk/WWE Title match to a lackluster main event, the Elimination Chamber was WWE’s way of saying they are ready for WrestleMania.

Ring Rust Radio’s Take

While the fans got what they wanted in a Cena win and Daniel Bryan and Punk retaining, the show fell flat on its face. It was very obvious that WWE shifted into neutral for this show in order to save the big guns for WrestleMania. Can’t blame them.

After a mediocre night of Elimination Chamber, Monday’s edition of Raw was a great episode that really got the ball rolling into WrestleMania.

Question on Everybody's Mind: Why not put this much effort into PPVs?

Raw was truly fun with Cena destroying Eve and The Rock, Undertaker and Triple H confirming what we already knew and Chris Jericho doing the same. There is no reason that the WWE should be having the Raw that follows their big Sunday events being of a higher quality.

Ring Rust Radio’s Take

While we can all agree that the WWE put on a good show this Monday, this sparks the conversation about Wade Barrett’s arm and The Rock’s return. Let’s just say that things get heated when one panelist calls The Rock a sellout.

WWE’s week was wilder than usual with Wade Barrett dislocating his elbow, CM Punk tearing Chris Brown apart on Twitter and on video and as much anarchy as the WWE could squeeze in under the current PG rating.

Question on Everybody's Mind: Will the fun continue?

CM Punk will always be a wild animal so you can just consider him crazy and leave it at that. That’s why we love him. As for the rest of the WWE, the build to WrestleMania is usually always epic so we will give them the benefit of the doubt…for now.

Ring Rust Radio’s Take

With the show running a bit long this week, the boys put together awesome debates on Wade Barrett’s future, CM Punk and Chris Brown and all the hottest stories of the week before sending the fans home with a burial.
