Episode 296/EVOLVE 56

July 30, 2017

The Best Wrestler of the UWS year checklist marches on as Chris Hero steals the show again but not without some stiff competition at EVOLVE 56.  Talking Backlash, NXT and the show of the week we look back as Zack Sabre Jr. was just starting his best in the world trial series and the Premiere Athlete Brand looked to reclaim their tag dominance.

Episode 295/ECW Fancam 11/18/1999

July 23, 2017

It's time for show(ish) that Ed's had his eye of on a long(ish) time.  It's an ECW house show and going into this show we had no idea what that meant.  Coming out I'm not sure we're any clearer but with Spike Dudley getting a title shot in the main event anything was possible.

Episode 294/AAW Jim Lynam Memorial 2016 Night 1

July 17, 2017

This show was taped before we knew Kurt Angle's secret.  Now we know and nothing will ever be the same again.  Blood, guts, big dudes clubbing each other in the face and so much more from the pre-Angle-Jordan world.

Episode 293/CMLL 4/12/1991

July 9, 2017

We're giving lucha another go but how will it look in this post-Mid South world?  Scuttlebutts are discussed, tomfoolery explored and so much more on this dense bite of wrestling goodness.

Episode 292/Mid South 7/21/1986

July 2, 2017

You'd think by now we'd have learned. You'd think as soon as "short show" and "interesting main event" came to mind we'd immediately pick something else to watch.  Then we don't and have to deal with Terry Taylor beating Buzz Sawyer twice in the span of 35 seconds so I don't even know what to think anymore. Join us as we watch another episode of the "best episodic wrestling TV in history!"

Episode 291/WWF Wrestlefest 1988

June 26, 2017

It's a festival of wrestling.  That's basically a mania but in a cage!  Can a good main event and a fun Demolition match save the show?  No.  No it can't.  But there were definitely some moments that were...snake-ily great.

288 / Chikara Sordid Perils of Everyday Existence

June 6, 2017

Apologies for the delay - Ed had taken ill which delayed recording.

Chikara's 2007 show that sparked a huge season long storyline is this week's show.

Ed and Neil talk good wrestling and the ridiculous absurdity that appeared on the show...and no, it isn't what you're probably thinking given that it is Chikara.

All this and more on this week's broadcast!

 

Are we sounding better with the audio changes we've made? Let us know!

Episode 287/AAW Cero Miedo

May 29, 2017

In the aftermath of his betrayal, let's remember the positive T. Ciampa back when he did if for himself and the kids.  AAW returns to the Berwyn Eagles Club and we return with a whole lot of digressions and musings as we run down AAW's Cero Miedo.
