Pro wrestler “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas is BACK, baby, but referee Mike Crockett is preoccupied with other duties (doodies?), leaving Brian to call backup in the form of Joe Marotta & Michael Quinn from Our Vantage Point, the Retro Wrestling Podcast (@ovppodcast)! For two weeks straight, we’ve looked at the WORST of wrestling, so the Summer of Negativity continues as we review three of the worst matches in WWE, TNA and WCW history. Hear us gag over Chris Nowinski & Jackie Gayda vs. Bradshaw & Trish Stratus! Listen in horror as we break down Sharmell vs. Jenna Morasca (who?)! Get dizzy as we attempt to make sense of the Mega Powers vs. EVERYONE in the Doomsday Triple Cage Match! Plus, a Promo About Nothing with not-so-honest Abe, Brian’s first thoughts on Ring Of Honor in Madison Square Garden, and Hey Hey, it’s Brian’s second favorite podcast duo!
With pro wrestler “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas again away on wrestling business, referee Mike Crockett has recruited as co-host this week the guy behind Booking The Territory, the UNprofessional Wrestling Podcast (@BTT_Podcast), Mike Mills – and it’s the perfect topic for an old school wrestling fan like him. He’s salivating to run down the Worst Gimmicks of the 1980s with a list of WWF gimmicks a mile long – but don’t worry, we spread the love around. From African Dreams in the Northeast, to time traveling teams in the territories down South, this list has it all! What’s your pick for the most awful character of wrestling’s golden era? Also in this episode, a flocking great Promo About Nothing, Mike Mills weighs in on recent Ring Of Honor happenings, and you MUST hear the worst idea HE’S ever heard from his time in wrestling!
Pro wrestler “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas is out on assignment, so referee Mike Crockett has again enlisted the services of the permanent guest host of the WPAN, owner of both Chaotic Wrestling and the New England Pro Wrestling Academy, Brian Fury (@xbrianxfuryx)! We reflect on some of the WORST ideas we’ve ever heard – booking plans, characters, production ideas and much more, including the humble beginnings of an NXT favorite! But before that, it’s the return of a new bit to the podcast, Making Towns or Made Up Clowns, where you have to decide whether these strange, stupid or outlandish independent wrestling results are real or fake! Plus, a Promo About Nothing with a dull Razor, checking in on RAW, and Ring Of Honor confirmed for Madison Square Garden!
Pro wrestler “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett have the EXCLUSIVE first interview with the latest wrestler to go viral, Brian’s old tag team partner Ace Romero (@The AceyBaby)! If you’ve been anywhere near wrestling Twitter in the past week, you’ve seen the big guy launching an unfortunate soul from the ring into the seventeenth row with a mighty pounce – that’s Acey Baby, a guy who met Milonas on day one of his training! We talk about the genesis of the spot, did it go as planned, who did his opponent land on and is either of them still living, plus the reaction to it from fans to indy workers to people in WWE! Listen in as we discuss the role of social media in today’s business from an independent wrestler who is benefitting from it in a big way. And also this week, a laugh-riot of a Promo About Nothing, Dijak in NXT and chat me up about bad audio!
Pro wrestler “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett dive into the world of the Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling by recapping season 1 of GLOW on Netflix, just a couple days after the new season is released. Helping us with this GLOW Primer is our next door neighbor, the host of the Greetings From Allentown podcast (@GFAllentownPod), Peter Winson! PW is not only a fan of the new series, but reviewed the pilot episode of the original GLOW series from 1985 on his show last week, so he’s got an insight that few do. Actually, that statement is true whether he watched that weird-ass TV show or not. Hear us talk about the origins of the series, Back To The Future, Marc Maron as Marc Maron, craft beer, 80s-style nudity, 80s-style moonsaults, Mad Men, Alex Riley boning, racism in wrestling then and now, Cousin Oliver, incest, Man On The Moon, and everything else you need to know before you start binging GLOW season 2! Plus, an intimidating Promo About Nothing, Kingpin’s vague thoughts on his match this weekend for Ring Of Honor Wrestling, and the era of MEGA MILONAS begins??
