The Doc Says…These Wrestlers Changed the Narratives of Their WWE Careers

These WWE Superstars maintained a certain stigma that plagued the perception of their careers, until they did something to change their narratives.


This week, The Doc has the NBA Finals on the brain. One thing to remember about him is that wrestling is never too far in the distance. As such, wrestling frequently works its way into whatever mental dialogue Doc has had going about something else.

Last month, Doc had a conversation with his cohort from live WrestleMania 29 viewing about times in NBA lore when a player altered the way that we thought about his career. Shortly after, Doc began thinking about wrestlers who had done the same in WWE history. He thought about The Miz, for instance, and how his on-going renaissance begun in 2016 has vaulted him up the all-time rankings and created a deeper layer of respect for him from the fans.

What other WWE wrestlers have been able to change the narratives regarding their careers, for better or worse? Doc discusses the topic at length through the entirety of today’s podcast.

Raw Reaction WWE New

Join Harry Broadhurst, Tony Acero and Liz Pugliese (who takes over for the hiatus having Andrew Balaz) as they present the Raw Reaction tonight at 11:30 PM (Eastern) here on the Chairshot Radio Network. Extreme Rules has come and gone. As is tradition, we open with a Final Reaction for the PPV itself. Also this weekend, WWE Network aired EVOLVE’s 10th anniversary show and AEW had Fight for the Fallen. We will discuss both of those shows as well but not as thoroughly as the PPV or Raw. The road to the biggest spectacle of the Summer begins tonight and surely people will be jockeying to find their path. We break down all the happenings from Raw and where it puts us on the path to SummerSlam along with so much more when you catch out the Raw Reaction, a presentation of the Chairshot Radio Network (online at thechairshot.com).

The Doc Says…G1 Climax, Top 20 NJPW Matches of 2019, Styles-Ricochet

New Japan Pro Wrestling’s G1 Climax and their Top 20 matches of 2019 through June

The Doc Says Dean Ambrose

AEW is awesome, but New Japan still offers arguably the best pro wrestling product in the world


This week, The Doc focuses on New Japan Pro Wrestling.  Late last year, his WWE fandom waning but his pro wrestling love unwavering, he turned to NJPW.  It was a rejuvenating experience.

Rarely has New Japan been given a proper spotlight on The Doc Says, however.  All Elite Wrestling has captured his imagination and dominated post-WrestleMania Season attention.  NJPW shall no longer take a backseat.  The G1 Climax has begun!  What an amazing tournament it has already been and promises to be.  Doc runs down his thoughts from the early-going.

Of course, NJPW has had yet another banner year, so today also offers a half-way through 2019 account of New Japan’s Top 20 matches, pre-G1.  Did your favorite make the cut?  Or perhaps you may be looking for a viewer’s guide?

Before signing off, Doc heaps praise on the recent heel turn by AJ Styles in WWE ahead of his United States Title bout with Ricochet at Extreme Rules.
