Welcome to the back-off-track-schedule-wise 7,004th (approximately) episode of Like a House Afire, a
frequent video-cast that runs down some hot topics in the world of pro wrestling with opinion and analysis from yours truly.
The fallout from Roman Reigns winning the 2015 Royal Rumble and WWE's response to it has driven the pro wrestling discussion. Triple H's kayfabe obliterating chat with Steve Austin only amplified that. I dive into that mess and probably confuse things even further with my thoughts on the 'Reality' Era and how to create good stories in it.
Chime in with your thoughts on Reigns, how WWE has handled him before and after the Rumble, Hunter's weaving from on-screen bad guy to backstage good guy, Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn and how WWE is adapting their product to the realities of 'Reality'.
Here's some background on the buzz that drove this episode:
