A bit of a different one this week. Aidan Sullivan came up to Manchester to spend Halloween with myself and Helena Hart, so the next morning we recorded a podcast on my crappy laptop mic about being a wrestling newbie and having over-eager boyfriends.
Wil is a huge wrestling fan, and an action movie guru, so you can bet we talk at length about They Live, No Holds Barred, the continued success of The Rock and what the future holds for Batista. Also, why the Brodus Clay film is the best WWE Studios production you haven’t seen.
This week, I’m joined by a very special guest! One of my favourite people on the internet, ComicsAlliance’s Chris Sims joins me for an extra-special, ninety minute(!) edition of the podcast, and we go all over the place, talking about Sting, Daniel Bryan, Jushin “Thunder” Liger, Bo Dallas, the difference between the Stunner and the Diamond Cutter, Goldust, and the book where Torrie Wilson and Batista are wrestlers by night, international spies by later that night.
This week, we’re talking about what it was like to come into wrestling just after the Attitude Era, the prevelance of formulaic matches in modern mainstream wrestling, and it wouldn’t be a chat between myself and Gibbo without some sort of bet or challenge being agreed upon by the end.
