Good Will Wrestling: Greatest Wrestler Ever Series

Recommended Posts

Here are three podcasts I recorded for the GWE project. I had a 4th recorded with El Boricua but it may not be salvageable because Canadians.

 

Anyway, here are the three that survived...

 

#1. Will is joining in the GWE fun with a series interviewing guys who aren’t always featured on P2B podcasts with some interesting ballots, a true Island of Misfit Toys. On the first episode, Will is joined by his buddies Elliott & Brian Hammons (Mando>Eddie) to run down their ballots and defend their picks. Bobby Heenan? Ian Rotten? New Jack? Kamala? B-Boy? Why are these guys considered some of the greatest wrestlers ever? We also hear spirited cases on why 2 Cold Scorpio and El Satanico should be at the top of your list!

#2. You may have heard Dylan Hales on the Reaction Shows, Wrestling Culture and many other podcasts since he is a podcast whore. You will not hear him on GWW! Instead, we have his two younger brothers, Devon and Dustin, to discuss their ballots for the Greatest Wrestler Ever! Ace Rockwell? Kyle Matthews? Tank? Shaun Tempers? Why do the Hales boys consider these guys all time greats? Plus, we hear exactly why Terry Funk means so much to the Hales family!

#3. It’s a DVDVR Reunion as Will talks to Phil Schneider (Digging in the Crates), Phil Rippa and DEAN~! Rasmussen to discuss their Greatest Wrestler Ever lists. These guys haven’t talked to each other at the same time since 2008. Tons of wrestlers are name-dropped on this show including Jose Lothario, Judy Martin, Rufus R. Jones, Terry Rudge, Necro Butcher, LA Park, and William Regal!!!! The DVDVR guys have been giving wrestling opinions on the internet for more than 20 years and have forgotten more wrestling than you have ever seen!

You would be happier if I didn't fuck up the 4th show

 

This is a true statement, but we lost two as well, so I won't point fingers.

Edit

 

It took me a while to find my footing here since I haven't had an in-depth conversation about wrestling literally in 15 years. But by the end I was like "FUCK we could have gone wrestler by wrestler this is awesome!"

 

Brian's list is really unique but he justifies everything so well and is an absolute podcast natural. You'll definitely get to hear some great arguments about some dudes you haven't heard talked about much or enough in this project.

 

And I was not stoned at all during the making of this podcast despite some wild allegations. I didn't inhale. And it depends on what the definition of the word "is" is.

When you want people to listen to a show, you don't apologize and tell people you were stoned doing it. Christ.

I wish Johnny apologized a little more.

I apologized for the Titans we did while I drank a gallon of margaritas. Otherwise, I regret nothing. Including going against my utter disdain for this whole project and doing the recording for two of these shows. Cause despite that, a friend needed a solid. And I'm nothing if not a good friend. And a fucking hero. 👍😘

Sorrow is a scholar and a gentleman. He is a 2 thumbs up blast. And I really want to listen to that Titans episode.

 

But he probably needs a helper llama.

I believe it was made into two episodes, Titans 30 and 31. 31 is all about the Cobra Clutch Challenge and by the end Johnny submitted to the Magarita Challenge

Powered through all three shows because any Will featured content usually goes to the top of my list. Loved hearing the different opinions, Elliott and Brian did great on their episode, the Hales brothers offered some other cool insight, and the Playaz were great to hear altogether. DEAN's list is kingly.

No, this series is about my family and Will burying me and Dustin rating Randy Fucking Orton

This is exactly what this is about!!!!! Listen to the Hales brothers! Gonna try and do a Hales brothers episode of the reaction show soon.

If I can figure out how to post spoiler tags, I'll post the lists discussed so people can follow along with the shows easier.

Listened to part 1 and I have to give huge props to Will. He handles even the outlandish sounding picks so well and even encourages the guys to stand by their picks.

Thanks for these, Will and crew. Listened to the first pod yesterday, saving the last two for treatment later this week.

Badass. Going to try and reschedule the Boricua pod so you have another show to pass the time away.

Thanks JP!!! Seriously... if these guys love a wrestler so much they would include them in the Top 100, who am I to argue? I just want to know why they are in the Top 100.
