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.
We’re wrapping up the month-long odyssey through WCW’s Halloween Havocs with 1998, The Nitro Girls, Rick Steiner’s amazing Monopoly pieces, and a match considered one of the worst of all time.
Carrying on the all-October-long journey through a random assortment of WCW’s Halloween Havocs has brought us to 1993, which features a wheel, a deal and the greatest three minutes in wrestling history.
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.
In this episode we get into the genesis and future of Olde Wrestling as a promotion, Justin’s history as a backyard wrestling kid and I have the utmost pleasure to introduce Justin to the wonder that is WCW’s Arachnaman.
It’s a great show this week, as I delve into one of professional wrestling’s most overlooked and underappreciated aspects, photography, with indie wrestling shutterbug Zia Hilty!
Over the course of the episode we chat about the New Generation of WWE, the best and worst of WCW, Marty Jannetty’s hair, Rick Rude punching a bear and what it’s like to be on the receiving end of Tursas’ rage!
We’re settling back into our regular, tried and true format this week, as I’m joined by the artist of Copernicus Jones: Robot Detective, Kevin Warren!
This one’s a long time coming, because after thirty-four weeks of podcasting, we finally get around to talking about e-feds! Plus, we get into the appeal of “cool-guy-heels”, the Monday Night Wars, and Kevin’s reactions to his first CHIKARA ever show.
