    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

    R.I.P. Dynamite Kid

    I loved the Bulldogs as a kid. I always had beagles around the house, so when Matilda was dognapped I was one horrified 5 and 1/2 year old. Now my most prominent memory is the unintentional humor of Capt Lou and Ozzy Osbourne running around the ring with the tag titles at WM 2 as Dynamite crawled on the mat and tried to put himself together again after taking a flat back bump off the turnbuckles and to the cement floor - which the cameras mostly missed.

    Wrasslin' Back in the Day

    http://culturecrossfire.com/wrestling/from-the-wwe-network-the-lost-awa-team-challenge-series-pilot/ I attempted to watch the hot mess that was the AWA Team Challenge Series pilot and add some humorous commentary to the whole debacle! - Who knew DX could claim to be partially to blame for this!?! - I debate if Paul Diamond or his doppelganger in the music world have fallen further since this taping. - Sgt. Slaughter's physical fitness may not stop his ambitions to sell out a stadium - Botched promos, bad production values, Verne's dog, Bischoff's coif...so much to digest! - Casual racism from the music department - Diamond foreshadows his space man gimmick years before he used it - 3 future world champs were involved in this mess!

    Wrasslin' Back in the Day

    http://culturecrossfire.com/wrestling/from-the-wwe-network-brutus-the-barber-beefcake/ WOOF!! Brutus Beefcake is highlighted in a stinker of a tape as we see Beefcake in epic matches with Dino Bravo, Jimmy Jack Funk, Johnny Valiant, Danny Davis and the Honky Tonk Man. Ted Dibiase and Greg Valentine try to drag something watchable out of Brother Bruti. The surprise gem on the tape turns out to be Beefcake battling Hulk Hogan, not due to their catch as catch can classic grappling, but because of an insanely electric crowd!
