I’m joined by cartoonist extraordinaire, John S. Troutman to talk all about the Royal Rumble, his blasphemous comic that he’s going to hell for, and what it was like to begin watching wrestling in the heart of the WCW Invasion.
It’s the first episode of 2015 and we’re kicking it off with Christopher Bird talking all about the longest running wrestling awards on the internet, The Theszies!
[NOTE: There are some audio issues that couldn’t be fixed in this episode. I explain it more before the episode starts, but basically I didn’t want to waste Christopher’s time by not uploading the episode and it’s not the biggest problem once you get used to it.]
Resident NXT expert Brandon Stroud returns to review the NXT roster on the eve of NXT Takeover, but what revelations about Stu Hart and Bull Dempsey await us?
Also, hear the most emotional anyone has ever been over Wesley Blake, and the one thing NXT could do to break our hearts irreparably.
Over at WhatCulture, I’ve written up ten of the best WWE divas whoa aren’t talked about as much as they probably should be.
Aubrey Sitterson is graciously back again to help fill out the rest of the list and make sure no stone goes unturned when it comes to these letter grades.
Well, actually, quite a few stones go unturned, because we’re both busy men with things to do, so sorry Zack Ryder fans, BUT we do cover some of the hottest and biggest names in WWE, and give out the most unexpected A- you ever did see.
An episode so big, we only made it half way through! Aubrey Sitterson returns to the show to run down the entire WWE roster and grade their year so far.
There’s a disagreements, compromise and controversy as we make our way through the names. Some of the results shocked even us! Also, we chat about the return of Aubrey’s rocking webcomic, King Maul!
Don’t ever say I don’t give the people what they want.
After I joked about doing an episode where I explain Kane to a wrestling novice on Twitter, the idea seemed to be quite popular, so I roped in my good buddy Vass to sit down for over an hour while I went through as much of Kane’s career as I could, in as much detail as I could.
The scary thing is, I still missed some stuff.
We’re back from our hiatus a week early to bring you this extra special chat with Justin Nottke (AKA “The Handlebar Haberdasher” Marion Fontaine) ahead of the next big Olde Wrestling show on August 1st.
In this episode we get into the genesis and future of Olde Wrestling as a promotion, Justin’s history as a backyard wrestling kid and I have the utmost pleasure to introduce Justin to the wonder that is WCW’s Arachnaman.
I’m joined this week by new friend and awesome writer dude Andrew Johnson to talk about the importance of VHS cover art and the impact it can have on a child’s brain, and the crushing guilt that came from a private chat with one of his (and my) personal heroes
This episode also contains one of the scummiest stories about an ECW original, and make sure you listen to the end, because… I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news.
We’re settling back into our regular, tried and true format this week, as I’m joined by the artist of Copernicus Jones: Robot Detective, Kevin Warren!
This one’s a long time coming, because after thirty-four weeks of podcasting, we finally get around to talking about e-feds! Plus, we get into the appeal of “cool-guy-heels”, the Monday Night Wars, and Kevin’s reactions to his first CHIKARA ever show.
