325/Non Finals Tourney Matches

Monday, March 19th, 2018

We're back with another milestone episode. This time, we watch matches from iconic moments with lots of imitators, lots of tag matches and a recent excellent match from the world of wrestling!

And, sadly, no O'Days v. Miracle Violence Connection in this although it is an eternal honorable mention for that backdrop driver.


324/WCW Fall Brawl 1996

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

Ed and Neil are back talking about lucha wrestling in WCW, odd choices for random matches given the main event's ramifications and...our take on the genesis of one of the biggest storylines in WCW history.


Episode 300b/We Love the 90s (1995-1999)

Sunday, September 3rd, 2017

Our wander through the 90s concludes with lucha, brawls and more as we reflect on the change from the dark days of 1995 through the bright days in the late-mids to the colorful days of the end of the decade that was.


Episode 214/WWF Mind Games

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

As September comes to an end it's time to place some games.  Some MIND GAMES.  GET IT?

Episode 208-WCW Nitro July 29th, 1996

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

The nWo is here and they're running wild with bats.  Call the police and bar the doors but DON'T tell the fans in the arena.  They'll prefer the mystery of nothing happening for 35 minutes.  Probably.

Episode 200b- Misawa vs. Kawada

Monday, June 8th, 2015

We're talking the legends today.  The big guns.  The head drops.  The elbows.  The friendships?


Episode 138/New Japan Skydiving J 1996

Sunday, February 23rd, 2014

When every match is a title match does it even really matter what titles are being defended?  Plunging through sickness we're back just in time for the Elimination Chamber with a show where we might still be riding the fumes from the cold medicine.  Our last show in a WWE Network-less world, it's episode 138!

Thanks for listening!

Episode 117/WCW Uncensored 1996

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

It had to come eventually.  A show so legendarily bad that you'd imagine it can't possibly live up to the hype.  But it does.  Oh goodness does it.  A show with so much awfulness that you couldn't fit it all into a three story cage, WCW Uncensored 1996 really does need to be experienced (vicariously, don't watch it yourself!) to be believed.

Episode 98/WWF King of the Ring 1996

Monday, April 29th, 2013

Apologies for the delay but Ed & Neil are back with a new show (allegedly) talking WWF's King of the Ring 1996.  In reality this show goes off the rails early and never quite recovers as Ed can't remember anyone's name and Neil is disturbed by throwing soup bones.  Not entirely coherent but mostly entertaining.  Probably.  Especially if you love the TurboGrafx 16.

Episode 78/WWF In Your House Buried Alive

Sunday, December 2nd, 2012

Ed & Neil are back talking news and In Your House (yes, your house) Buried Alive.  Steve Austin vs. HHH.  Undertaker vs. Mankind.  Billy Gunn sans mustache.  Vader being inappropriate with Sid.  So much to talk about.
