Classy Ring Attire 304 - The Good Old Days of 2011

What is up with wrestling? Did WWE just forget how to exist without a PPV every other week? Are they tripping over themselves trying to outthink the entire world of indy wrestling? Its a strange, strange world out there wrestling wise right now. 

Classy Ring Attire 303 - The Avengers of the WWE

It's a long and convoluted journey, but we manage to turn hype for the new Avengers trailer into something that's relevant to the WWE right now.

Classy Ring Attire 297 - TLC on a Technicality

Well it happened again. Just hours after recording, we are faced with the WWE changing everything around and rendering the majority of this episode inaccurate making us look like a pair of mooks. Still, for posterity's sake, here's a discussion on what the card for TLC could have been had the whole think not been ravaged by disease.

We're here to recap a PPV with not one, but two major main events that by their powers combined manage to undo the enjoyment of the entire rest of the show.

Classy Ring Attire 292 - The Not Quite as Way Too Early WrestleMania Predictions

Every year, the day after WrestleMania, before Raw goes live that night, we both make a wrestling card of what we think will be the WrestleMania card of the next year.

So join us as we talk about predictions that were made several months ago and see how many of our matches already can't happen.

Classy Ring Attire - 291 A Week Late (But We're Still Here)

Due to technical issues, this isn't podcast isn't about this week's wrestling but rather last week's wrestling. So journey with us, back to the olden days of Slightly earlier in September of 2017 as we look back on what a crazy time it was. Cena was feuding with Roman. Can you believe it?

Classy Ring Attire 287: WWE Was So Boring That Joel Left*

*on vacation.

Joel picked a great time to take a week off. Neil fills in once again as he and Chris desperately try to have an original thought about wrestling. Are they successful? Do they rehash points made months and years ago? Does Chris use this opportunity to lobby for his own sports podcast? Only one way to find out!

Friday, August 4, 2017

Classy Ring Attire 286 - Hot Take Here: CM Punk Was Perfect and We All Miss Him

Somehow with all that's going on, we still managed to find a way to lament the fact that CM Punk isn't on the show any longer, and talk about how much better everything would be if they would all just listen to him.
It's been three years. Get over it guys.

Sunday, July 30, 2017

Classy Ring Attire - 285 Four Heads are Better Than Two?

Fortunately for all of us, it seems like WWE is on their way to fixing the SummerSlam main event, or at the very least finding one that won't bum us all out while we wait for the inevitable outcome we're all dreading.

Sunday, July 2, 2017

Classy Ring Attire 281 - You Can't Say That On Television

With no pay-per-view to review and no upcoming on to focus on, Raw makes up for it this week by having a good old fashion scandal to focus on. We break down what happened, what was the goal, and where it all went wrong. 

Monday, June 26, 2017

Classy Ring Attire 280 - Joel Plays Catch Up

He was only gone for a week, but it was a busy week. Not only do we have to cram in all of the events Joel missed out on by being absent last week, we also have Money in the Bank, and the fallout from all of that to go through as well.

Classy Ring Attire 275 - An Upbeat Week if it Kills Us

After the major downer of the previous week, we're going to be positive no matter what. Which may be a challenge since this is the week we're running down the Backlash card. 

Sunday, May 14, 2017

Classy Ring Attire 274 - Time For Another Doom and Gloom Episode

It seems like every few episodes or so, we get one where we just have to get all of the "nothing works, everything sucks, the end of wrestling as we know it is nigh" out of our system. 
This week is one of those episodes as our heroes continue their never ending quest to discover what is fundamentally broken at the very core of wrestling as a whole. 

Sunday, May 7, 2017

Classy Ring Attire 273 - Payback Pulls it Off

Despite an alarmingly lackluster buildup, the actual event that was Payback actually managed to be pretty impressive.

Where it went right, where it went wrong, and why the wrong bits were just so wrong.

Sunday, April 30, 2017

It's finally here. After months of waiting WrestleMania is this weekend. We've got what may be the biggest event card every in the history of the show (depending on what metric you use to measure that) and a whole additional card from NXT the night before, so there's not a lot of time to do much but jump straight to the card on this one.

Monday, March 27, 2017

Classy Ring Attire 267 - And the World Goes Insane

Just over a week left before WrestleMania, and the big event is hardly even mentioned this episode.

Its a lot guys.

Monday, March 13, 2017

Monday, February 27, 2017

Classy Ring Attire 263 - The Post Raw Phone Call

It's been a whole week since the greatest friendship ever broke up and we still don't know why!
But on the bright side, just enough CM Punk things happened after Raw went off the air that we can spend a huge chunk of the show on wild CM Punk related speculation.

Sunday, February 19, 2017

Classy Ring Attire 262 - Elimination of Your Best Friend

We've got something big from every show this week. A Festival of Friendship and a championship match on Raw. A triple threat main event on Smackdown. And obviously an elimination chamber match for a champion at Elimination Chamber.

We breakdown the card for both The Royal Rumble and NXT the night before, including our long thought out discussion as to who will with the Rumble this year.

Thursday, January 19, 2017

Classy Ring Attire 258 - The WWE's Gap Week

It's too late in the year to have any more "Best of 2016" conversations, but still to early to do our predictions for the Royal Rumble. WWE seems to be in a holding pattern as far as forward momentum goes on any of there shows, so join us for what is apparently going to be the first of two different weeks of go home shows from all four of WWE's main shows.
Plus talk about NJPW's possible future.

Sunday, January 15, 2017

Classy Ring Attire 257 - Match of the Year Has Been Taken Care Of

With only a few weeks into the new year, we already have not only a contender for match of the year, but a match that will more than likely go on to win the whole thing. Wrestle Kingdom 11 ends with a match that not only has us talking abut match of the year already, but one that forces us to address the five star rating system for matches as a whole.
Also the Undertaker came back, so we talk about that a little bit.

Sunday, January 8, 2017
