Welcome to the 26th episode of The SharpShooter Cast.  We are TJRWrestling's only weekly podcast, and boy do we have a doozy for you this week.

A lot has happened since last Tuesday, most notably the announcement of the impending launch of the WWE Network.  If you've followed our podcasts and writings before, you know that we're BIG supporters of a WWE Network, and last Wednesday's announcement was truly exciting.  In this episode we discuss that announcement, as well as analyze all the details regarding the Network itself.

Also in this episode, we review last night's Raw, which was the most eventful in weeks if not months!  You'll learn our thoughts on all of the developments concerning Daniel Bryan, CM Punk and the Outlaws, and Batista's upcoming return.

And of course, we talk about the WWE's decision to induct the Ultimate Warrior into their hall of fame.

This is a big, fun, and polished episode.  So get in that car, jump on that treadmill, put in your ear-buds, and enjoy!

  • Why we love the Royal Rumble.
