Inside The Locker: Shakespearean SummerSlam

21 Submitted by on Thu, 22 August 2013, 13:33

Prepare yourselves for the most epic Inside the Locker to date.

For our main topic, as promised, we bring you the audio from our WWE Summerslam commentary. It’s a hefty three hours long! But wouldn’t you know it, the recording crapped out just before the final match. All is lost, right? Oh, so wrong. The gents of ITL decided to reenact the final match between John Cena and Daniel Bryan, but with a classical Shakespearean twist. It may be the weirdest thing you hear…at least this week.

We also bring you up to speed on the latest scores and stories, choose our possible cyborg candidate for the week, and answer some of your tweeted questions.

Hold on tight, sports nerds, this one goes off the rails.
