Published by Chris Cox on


So Backlash has lashed back, and the greatest living wrestler (sorry, Roman Reigns) is now WWE champ. It’s no holds barred and no rest-holds as Gene and Richard discuss what’s wrong and right in the Owens/Styles era, the joy of the cruiserweight classic, what might have been with Will Ospreay, why Women of Honor is so long overdue, and why Delete or Decay could be the future of wrestling.

Chris Cox

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
