In this episode, we open with talk about a Raw that could have really used Daniel Bryan. The reformation of Evolution, The Shield facing every mid card heel, John Cena’s terrible promo and Bray Wyatt trying to save it, and more.
Then, it’s TNA talk, particularly about Eric Young winning the TNA World Title and the damage it’s done to Magnus, and the comparisons to WrestleMania and Daniel Bryan. We also talk about Davey Richards’s horrible haircut.
After a break, it’s WrestleMania III! 95 different matches, the Z-Man, one of the greatest matches in WrestleMania history in Ricky Steamboat vs. Randy Savage… and well, everything else on the show.
We name our MVP and LVP, and then reveal which show we’re discussing next week, No Mercy 2002!

We had so much news this week, we’re pushing WrestleMania 3 back to next week!
We touch on the weekend in non-WWE, but really kick things off with the news of the passing of The Ultimate Warrior, and talk about the last weekend of his life, balancing the character and the real man, and more.
Then, it’s talk about WrestleMania. Daniel Bryan and his rise to glory, Triple H busting out a Tiger Suplex, Bray Wyatt and his amazing entrance, the Undertaker’s streak being broken by Brock Lesnar, and more.
We name our MVP and LVP, and then, in a rare move, take a break before coming back to Raw.
Cesaro being a Paul Heyman guy, John Cena’s feud with Wyatt and the next step it takes, Paige’s great debut and if it will help the Divas and AJ Lee going forward, The Shield vs. Evolution, and more.
As mentioned earlier, next week, finally, will see our take on WrestleMania III.
In this episode, we start with talk about Raw. Whether Daniel Bryan missing the show was a good thing in his feud with Triple H, John Cena and his match with Luke Harper, along with the awesome visual via Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt Family, and Brock Lesnar being awesome at bumping for The Undertaker. We also talk about profanity, when it’s been practically eliminated from WWE TV, can be almost shocking when used sparingly. Then we talk TNA, and largely focus on Lei’D Tapa. Was writing off her character a week into her turn a waste of the months they used building it? We finish it off with some talk about a recent WWE tryout, and if Roderick Strong or Kevin Steen would have interest in a TNA deal if WWE passes them by.
After the break, it’s Sting, Robocop, Brian Pillman being awesome, The Road Warriors being less so, sex toys and more, as it’s Capital Combat: The Return of Robocop!
We name our MVPs and LVPs, and then reveal our next show we’ll be talking about, WrestleMania III!
First of all, we have a pair of T-Shirts now available at Pro Wrestling Tees. If you’d like to support the show, and wear a great looking tee, pick one up.
We kick the episode off, after a little schilling, with the HHH debate promised the week prior. We segue that into Raw talk and his attack on Daniel Bryan, as well as John Cena coming through when it matters in his feud with Bray Wyatt, Mike admitting he was wrong, and, as always, Cesaro adoration.
We then talk TNA ridiculousness, Christy Hemme mannequins, and the future of Bad Influence.
After a break, it’s time for SummerSlam 1995. We both get so bored by a match we get basic details confused, we talk about The Undertaker and Kama getting sixteen minutes, and debate if the Shawn Michaels-Razor Ramon ladder match is better than the first, before, clearly, the greatest main event of modern times, Diesel vs. King Mabel.
We name our MVPs and LVPs and reveal which show we’re talking about next week, Capital Combat: The Return of Robocop! We then close the show, per Rex’s request, with a little hip hop.
