Pro wrestler “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett bring back their old boss, former Chaotic Wrestling owner and co-host of For The Pops Podcast Jamie Jamitkowski (@JamieJUCW) to talk about the health of the wrestling business in 2018. Why does Jamie site the movie “Little Giants” when discussing the phenomenal success of Cody & The Young Bucks’ venture known as All In? Where does Brian think the leverage lies when it comes to independent talent negotiating with WWE? Also, in-depth discussion of the impending FOX deal for WWE Smackdown, what Jamie did with his WWE stock, what happens with the brand split, RAW’s place in all this, the importance (or lack thereof) of pay-per-view going forward, Jamie’s bold prediction on the McMahons’ next move, The Kingpin’s bold prediction on WrestleMania’s future and a ton more in this fantastic conversation! Plus, an unpredictably predictable Promo About Nothing, and response from Mike Mills and others on last week’s controversial Smoky Mountain Wrestling review!
Pro wrestler “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett are taking a look at wrestling on the local level this week. First, it’s the return of the popular new game “Making Towns or Made Up Clowns”, where we read weird and whacky results from independent shows and you decide whether these are real wrestlers or just made up? From there, we review an episode of Jim Cornette’s Smoky Mountain Wrestling TV, one of the last territory-style promotions on record. Hear our thoughts on the production, on smooth-foreheaded New Jack, on TV Titles with no titles, on wrestler/murderers, on Chris Jericho’s dick-based offense, on the copious promo segments with one person in particular getting the bulk of the interview time, and more! Plus, a fishy Promos About Nothing (WHAT?), Milonas meets Scoop Corgan in Chi-Town, All In sells out, and very little about John Cena and Nikki Bella!
Pro wrestler “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas is basking in the afterglow of his match at War Of The Worlds in Lowell, Massachusetts, where his team opposed Tetsuya Naito & Los Ingobernables De Japon, and referee Mike Crockett is asking him all about his recent success in Ring Of Honor Wrestling. But it’s not just Brian – we’ve been around a ton of hard-working talent that has achieved the dream. Listen in as we give you the inside skinny on the rise of New England talent like Tommaso Ciampa, Oney “Biff Busick” Lorcan, Mike “Bennett” Kanellis, Kofi Kingston, Sasha Banks and more! Plus, this Promo About Nothing is the shits, feedback on our “Work Or Shoot” segment, and for crying out loud, is The Kingpin ALL IN?
IT’S A PILOT! Mike Crockett is experimenting with a different kind of podcast, as he interviews other pro wrestling podcasters in the Putting Over Podcasts Facebook Group. In this episode, he talks with Joe Marotta, host/producer of Our Vantage Point – The Retro Wrestling Podcast about his inspiration to start, his chemistry with co-host Michael Quinn, the podcast’s format, breaking it up into seasons, Scott Keith, Sean Mooney, networks, Patreon, and more.
Pro wrestler “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett are joined by permanent guest host, most frequent guest and owner of the New England Pro Wrestling Academy & Chaotic Wrestling, Brian Fury, to discuss his most despised period in pro wrestling, the WWF’s Attitude Era! Despite Fury’s claims, there’s positives as well as negatives, so we break down the Good, the Bad and the Nothing of the most successful run in the company’s history. Hear our grades for getting the “F” out, the TV format shift, Medusa trashing the Women’s Title, hardcore wrestling, bad wrestling, Steve Austin, Steve Blackman, competition, cat fights, catchphrases, and so much more!
