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.


307/WCW Saturday Night 10-24-92

Sunday, October 29th, 2017

Can a show with multiple Paul E. Dangerously promos, Bill Watts as the booker and a non-mustachioed Rick Rude be good and have zero race baiting?

Let's find out!


289 / WCW Halloween Havoc 1989

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Some technical delays may have temporarily stopped us but nothing can keep us down for the count.

We're back to discuss WCW's Halloween Havoc 1989!

YouTube link for 9:45'ish to join us in the Andy Reid Punt, Pass + Kick segment

Talking random decisions, awkward finishes and oddities that abound in this week's look at the spooky foray from World Championship Wrestling!


Episode 263/WCW Starrcade 1993

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

You can feel the sickness in the air (it's that time of year) as Ed is infected with the positivity virus (and also a cold) and Neil's just a bit of a downer.  How could you not love Shockmaster vs one or both Kongs?  It's Starrcade time and we're back to 1993 for Flair/Vader and a whole bunch of other wrestling.


Episode 258/WCW Souled Out 1998

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

A show that is better than the last year's attempt. But, that is really feint praise. Join us in reflections on another edition of Souled Out that can't be as horridly terrible, no good and very bad as that atrocious 1997 show.


245 / WCW Starrcade 86

Monday, July 18th, 2016

Let's have a show in multiple cities! WCW's repetition of the foibles of WrestleMania II comes forward with Starrcade '86: The Night of the Skywalkers.

Fantastic hair, frantic rebooking and lots of spare change abound in this episode...and Ed says WHAT about Wahoo, Rick Rude and strap matches?!


Episode 242/WCW Monday Nitro Sept. 11, 1995

Sunday, June 26th, 2016

A discussion about spoiler culture, a connection between Grandpa Simpson and Lex Luger and more abound as one year later, we come back to review the second episode of Nitro. And yes, it was #2.


Episode 230/WCW Fall Brawl 1993

Monday, March 28th, 2016

Much like Fall Brawl 93, large portions of this show should have been left forgotten to the ravages of time. Lengthy sidetracks include more Chris Champion, politics & race in WCW, the NFL & WCW, WCW's medical plan, rebooking a poorly planned Wargames and much much more. A meandering tale the likes of which we haven't put out in quite a long while. And it all builds to WRESTLEMANIA WEEK!

Episode 224/Clash of the Champions 7

Sunday, January 24th, 2016
Look, Fort Bragg, I know it's Flag Day 1989 but we've got to talk security. Ranger Ross, that makes sense. Sting, sure, why not. THE TERRORIST?  Oh that won't do at all.
