This week, we’re talking about what it was like to come into wrestling just after the Attitude Era, the prevelance of formulaic matches in modern mainstream wrestling, and it wouldn’t be a chat between myself and Gibbo without some sort of bet or challenge being agreed upon by the end.
Five weeks of this already, just look how the time flies. I say it every time, but this week I am joined by one of my very best friends. He’s a man I have enjoyed countless wrestling shows with, both live and sat in a basement at 1am, surrounded by like-minded fellows, the one and only, Matthew Beswick. We talk about the greatness of Chris Jericho, the underappreciated Attitude Era mid-card, and I detail my plans to save the career of Curtis Axel. Yes, I am that mad.
It’s a great episode, and Sam’s a super fun guy to chat to. He’s also very opinionated, so have a listen to this week’s episode to hear his controversial thoughts on all sorts, including which era-Undertaker is the only one he likes.
This week I’m chatting to The Outhouse’s Niam Suggitt as someone who was never really that into wrestling as a child, and we’ll talk about what it means to come to wrestling as an adult, as well as the connection between the world of comic books and of professional wrestling (and other stuff, obviously)
Welcome back to Have A Nice Day, or if this is your first episode, welcome to the show!
This week, I’m chatting to my good friend Alex Palmer about his personal history with wrestling, from his earliest memories of Doink The Clown, through to travelling all the way to New Jersey for WrestleMania XXIX, and just what it is about CM Punk that captivates so many wayward fans.
Welcome to the most must-listen podcast on the internet, welcome to Ha– Actually no, wait, that’s a terrible way to start this. Welcome to Have a Nice Day, my name is Kieran Shiach and the only thing I like more than professional wrestling is talking about professional wrestling. So I went and started a podcast to indulge myself. I’m lucky to have joining me for the very first episode of Have a Nice Day is the editor of The Atomic Elbow Fanzine, and all around swell dude, Mr. Robert Newsome.
For our inaugural episode, we discuss Robert’s personal history with wrestling, starting at weekends with his dad, through to the Monday Night Wars, and on to today. We also talk at length about The Atomic Elbow, what it is, how it came to be, and how you can get it.
