I’m joined by cartoonist extraordinaire, John S. Troutman to talk all about the Royal Rumble, his blasphemous comic that he’s going to hell for, and what it was like to begin watching wrestling in the heart of the WCW Invasion.

Episode 45: Halloween Havoc 1991

While our attempt to chronicle Halloween Havoc 1989 was lost to the ages, Chris Sims, Chris Haley and myself are back with our tales from watching Havoc ’91 for you all to enjoy.

While it doesn’t reveal how far Sims is willing to go with Batman, it does have the Chamber of Horrors, the Halloween Phantom and some darn good rapping.

We’re back from our hiatus a week early to bring you this extra special chat with Justin Nottke (AKA “The Handlebar Haberdasher” Marion Fontaine) ahead of the next big Olde Wrestling show on August 1st.

Over the past month, myself and comics artist extraordinaire Kyle Starks have dedicated ourselves to one goal: Discovering how Scott Steiner went from Michigan born good ol’ boy to The Big Bad Booty Daddy.

Today, we recorded an hour and half long, special edition of Have A Nice Day and now you can all bear witness to our findings.

Episode 26: Taylor Meyers

Man, what a week it’s been in wrestling, eh?! After everything that’s gone down, I needed someone who thinks about wrestling more intelligently than I do to bounce off of, so it was a delight to be joined by my friend, Taylor Meyers, who was in New Orleans this weekend, to help me through this strange week.

(Quick note: This episode was recorded before The Ultimate Warrior’s passing, so don’t expect it to come up, sorry.)
