WCW Thunder #9 (3.5.98) review

WCW Thunder #9   March 5 1998   We’re in Columbus, Ohio and we are live, still. The early days of WCW Thunder, when the company still cared about it, are a special time. Harvard Lampoon named Randy Savage “Man of the Year” apparently. Hosts are Tony Schiavone, Bobby Heenan and “Stagger” Lee Marshall.  … Continue Reading

Defiant Loaded #7   January 20 2019   We’re in Newcastle, England. Hosts are Dave Bradshaw and James R Kennedy.   We kick off backstage where Prince Ameen is still looking for El Phantasmo’s glasses.

AAA Conquista Total Gira 2019 (1.19.19) review

AAA Conquista Total Gira 2019   January 19 2019   We’re in Juarez, Mexico at the Pepsi Center WTC. Nothing says “welcome to AAA” more than ring girls carrying banners of the dead promoter while his ashes are placed on the guardrail at ringside. Just to let you know what you’re getting yourself into here!… Continue Reading

Bar Wrestling 27 (12.31.18/1.1.19) review

Bar Wrestling 27: In the Midnight Hour   December 31 2018     We’re in Baldwin Park, California at American Legion Hall #241. I drop in and out of Bar Wrestling but I do love it.
