Welcome to the 39th episode of the SharpShooter Cast.  After a week in which we discussed the life and times of The Ultimate Warrior, things are back to normal for us on the Podcast.  This week, we focus on the latest Raw, who we thought stood out, and our opinions on how Extreme Rules is shaping up.  Here's a bit of a spoiler: we're really looking forward to the "Special Event".  That's what they're called now, didn't you know?

Just by looking around the internet, it's easy to see that many fans we're let down by last night's Raw.  Combined with last week's show, it seems the WWE has definitely entered its post-Mania lull.  We, though, decided to give this week's Raw a bit of a pass.  The most exciting development heading into Raw was Daniel Bryan - our beloved champion - making his return.  Unfortunately, things didn't go as planned.

Daniel Bryan's father - Bud Danielson - sadly passed away several days ago.  Bryan was made aware of his passing after returning from his honeymoon.  Although he worked Raw, clearly he was booked in a way that would allow him to take additional time off, allowing him to grieve with his family.  In this way, WWE did the best it could given the circumstances.  

We offer our deepest condolences to Daniel Bryan and his family.
