Like a House Afire (ep. 27): The WrestleMania 31 match I'm most excited for is...

New, 16 comments

Welcome to another episode of Like a House Afire, a weekly-ish video-cast that runs down some hot topics in the world of pro wrestling with opinion and analysis from yours truly.

With most of the wrestling world focused on whether or not Brock Lesnar is staying, Roman Reigns is ready or if the Intercontinental title feud is lazy booking, I've been catching a WrestleMania buzz from the decidedly old school United States championship program. Give me a few minutes of your time to explain why its (admitted) problems aren't that bad or unique to John Cena, how much of a slobberknocker it might be and why I'm optimistic about what comes next for Rusev and the Face that Runs the Place, even if LOLCENAWINS.

Here's some background on the buzz that drove this episode:

A counter-point, and overall excellent breakdown of one of my frequent gripes, WWE's character motivations

Rumors about the future of all three WWE titles post-Mania

Cena's Steve Rogers-esque sitdown with Michael Cole
