DC’s Network Diaries – ECW TV Episode 4 – Growing Pains

While I am not a parent, I do have an appreciation for watching someone grow up. As an educator, I see it all the time, and it does warm my heart, even if it can be painful at times as well. That’s where we’re at with this week’s episode of ECW – They’re making small changes to improve things, taking their baby steps, but it can still be VERY cringeworthy.

Either way, onward!

In case you’re a relative neophyte to the DDTWrestling experience, let’s take a minute for some education. Doc Manson and DC Matthews began their online careers as writers, going back and forth in Google Docs. If you can imagine a written version of our podcast, that was essentially it, only without any song parodies or food discussion.

As the podcast grew, the writing dwindled, to the point where I can’t even remember the last time I put fingers to keyboard, as it were. This is a strange feeling – I’m not even sure I remember how to log into ddtpod.com! This could be a disaster…

Regardless, while I didn’t sit down and scribe out resolutions for 2017, I did have a couple of goals in mind. One of them was to dive back into the WWE Network archives. Since the brand split, I haven’t had the time or the energy to watch anything other than the current WWE / NXT / 205 Live product. On the most recent episode of Doc Talk, my partner in crime was effusive in praising my wrestle-nerd-dom, citing my perusal of “The Vault” as his prime example. So, really, I have no choice in the matter.

RAW Response – It’s Time to Move On From Wrestlemania

On the day after Wrestlemania, I spent hours sitting in front of my computer sifting through the myriad complains of the NAIborhood, and, if I’m being honest, offering many of my own.

Why did Brock Lesnar so handily defeat Dean Ambrose?

Why did WWE build up the Shane McMahon story only to have Undertaker win?

Why did The Rock put Bray Wyatt over verbally, but not necessarily physically?

Basically, the world wanted to know What in the blue hell is going on?
