WCW Fall Brawl 1994

WAR GAMES! We don't actually get to hear William Regal say those iconic words on this event, but we do get him in a powdered wig so...that's something? In addition to that, we have a hilariously exhausting promo/phone call between Hulk Hogan and Ric Flai...

WWF Unforgiven 2001

You read the title, and you probably thought "Hmm, I guess this is the show where Kurt Angle won the title, but what else happened?". Admittedly, I had the same thought before watching this show, but there turned out to be a TON of noteworthy stuff that ...

WWF Summerslam 2001

The "Invasion" is firmly underway, and we're starting to see some of ridiculousness that this storyline brought to the audience. It's becoming progressively more clear that we're not getting Goldberg, or Hogan, or Flair, or anyone that really embodies wh...

WWF Summerslam 1994

This episode is so hot, it’s scary!!! The year of 1994 is widely perceived as a down year for wrestling; and by many metrics, it is. However, the Summer of 94 sees so many impactful seeds being planted: Hogan debuting in WCW, Shane Douglas dropping the N...

WWE Hell in a Cell 2020 Review

Best Hell in a Cell PPV of all time. So much to dig into. Three Cell matches, but each with their own identity; and that's what made this show such a success. We of course go over all the matches but I expand into topics I haven't audio-ly discussed yet ...

WCW Slamboree 1994

WCW in 1994, what a spectacle. And not in a good way. But definitely in a car-crash entertaining way. We got Sting vs Vader for the International World Title that Rick Rude had to vacate due to injury, another insane street fight involving Cactus Jack an...
