    CM Punk returns in a mask?

    Derek St Holmes is a good vet hand here in Wisconsin, so I absolve him of being the problem.

    Wrasslin' Back in the Day

    http://culturecrossfire.com/wrestling/wwf-the-boston-garden-8-3-1985/ - A former world champ has perhaps the worst match on the card. - We learn that the Honky Tonk Man is probably broke, if the commission rules are accurate - Roddy Piper and Mr. Wonderful get a little hardcore - Terry Funk gives Rick McGraw a chance to shine - Ricky Steamboat and the JYD dispense some retribution to the dastardly villains, Mr. Fuji and Don Muraco. - We test the theory that smaller wrestlers mean better workrate. - A former football player teases his potential as a wrestler.

    What are you watching?

    Pretty neat drop this week with a Leroy McGuirk studio wrasslin' show from 1978. - McGuirk is dull and needs his announcing partner to feed him names and such as they discuss angles. Bill Watts comes in a few minutes later to replace McGuirk and covers for his bland and uninspired promoting by saying something like "Men of Leroy's generation were masters of hiding their emotions". I thought it was a great spin. - Paul Orndorff works a rookie Bill Irwin. Irwin is the exact type of semi-star that gets my juices flowing. The men shake hands to start, but Irwin gets a cheap forearm in on a rope break to establish a heelish persona. - Ray Candy works next, far less fat than I am accustomed to. He and Orndorff both used takedowns and grappling on the mat, as if this is some sort of sport or something. I Dotel'd by this point. - We get a fine assortment of geeks and freaks as THE MONGOL, The CHALLENGER and The BRUTE eat up TV time. Plus Jose Lothario!

    83 Weeks with Eric Bischoff

    I can't hate on the guys for ads, but the robotic woman delivering clearly prerecorded answers to Eric and Conrad's questions was funny/sad to kick off the Bischoff/Russo Nitro reboot ep. --- BTW... I met Bischoff in Milwaukee this weekend. I made him laugh with the prerequisite "Where's the Blue Chew samples?" at the meet and greet. Then he had an hour long talk/Q and A focused on WCW's video games (It was a gamer's convention). He was a very entertaining guest speaker.

    All Elite Wrestling

    https://www.sescoops.com/aew-plans-to-use-3-man-commentary-booth/ “I’m not a big fan of three-man booths,” Ross says. “I’m even less of a fan of three-man booths when it’s with people I’ve never worked with.” “So how do you fix that? If the company wants a three-man booth, we’ll give them a three-man booth,” says Ross. “But we’ve got to prepare for it.”

    What Happened When with Tony Schiavone

    This week's Clash ep is worth it for around the 55 min mark where Conrad tells of how he and Bruce had recently been to a Colorado show where their ride was a former indy geek who was a "dick dancer". The driver got drunk later on and proceeded to tell them about how he sexual dominated an old man after the dude offered him enough money. /Wrasslin!

    What Happened When with Tony Schiavone

    I have a log jam of these on the backburner, this lead to an amusing little moment recently. In the Starrcade 92 ep, Tony complains that he doesn't have sponsors like Bish and Brother Love. FFWD to a ep from a the Fall of 2018 and Conrad has him do a Blue Chew plug. Tony won't play along with Conrad and tell a sex story like the one's Eric makes up. The next episode...no Blue Chew ad....

    Pork Chop Cash

    When I was a young lad, I read about Cash being picked out of the crowd for a match with John Tolos, earning an upset victory and the title in his "debut". It blew my mind and the image from that PWI history piece is burned into my head. I suppose the only frame of reference I would have had was Quake's debut.

    Is TNA the worst wrestling promotion in history?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAmbK135FVw TNA uploaded their first ever PPV. Worth it alone just to watch them open with 3 of their biggest stars (Jarrett, Hall and Shamrock) all come out 1 by 1 and bury the main event battle royal for the NWA World title as a stupid way to crown a champ. - NASCAR drivers get a big pop as the scary black heel confronts them. - Toby Keith sings about putting boots in terrorist asses a year after 9/11 as the crowd goes nuts - AJ Styled jobs to Jimmy Wang Yang dressed as Elvis - Midget hardcore wrestling - Ed Ferrara grew out a full long dreadlocks!?! - Mickie James in the underwear battle royal - The Infamous Wrestling Penises
