The Return of Matt “Tarzan Taylor” Spectro (and Julian Starr) – Episode 161

 

Ring Of Honor Wrestling’s “The Brawler” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett welcome back one of our most popular guests, the one and only Matt “Tarzan Taylor” Spectro and he’s joined by another notable New England wrestling name, Julian Starr – and they’ve got an announcement to make! But before that, we clear the air after Brian’s recent tirade upon hearing (some of) an appearance Tarzan made on the “Let The Chaos Begin” podcast. We’ll also talk to Julian about his TWO exits from wrestling and why he’s back now as a commentator. Plus, how do they feel about the booming indy wrestling industry and do they think they bowed out too early? And yeah, that announcement… that will make New England pro wrestling fans very happy! Also this week, a magical Promo About Nothing, The Brawler assaults a little person, and the survey is still live and we need YOUR opinions about the WPAN! tinyurl.com/WPANsurvey

Best Wrestling Documentaries & Travel Day From Hell – Episode 160

 

Ring Of Honor Wrestling’s “The Brawler” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett take you to the movies this week – not to Endgame, because Crockett went over the weekend – but we’re gonna do the Siskel & Ebert gimmick with wrestling documentaries! There’s some great stuff out there right now, and we’ll break that down too, but we are looking back at the all-time greatest docs out there: WWE produced stuff, independently produced features, even mainstream commercial pictures. Which WWE doc might have been the first and is probably the best? What little-known film about a comedian is a stellar wrestling doc pick? Who is the Vince McMahon of backyard wrestling? And finally, which wrestling documentaries are Mike & Brian’s number one picks? Also, Brian The Brawler shares his travel story as he tried to get to Grand Rapids for Ring Of Honor in one piece! Plus, a totally bogus Promo About Nothing, we talk Tommaso & Dijak(ovic) injuries, we celebrate THREE YEARS of podcasting, and we ask you to take our friggin’ survey! tinyurl.com/WPANsurvey

Then, we’ve both had the opportunity to book angles for Chaotic Wrestling and we reveal the worst stuff we ever booked! And finally, we admit, they haven’t all been winners – the worst matches we’ve ever been involved in!

Truckin’ Thru The Territories: Big Time Wrestling (1978) – Episode 158

 

Ring Of Honor Wrestling’s “The Brawler” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett are back on “the road”, watching territorial wrestling television shows from every region ’til we see them all! “Truckin’ Thru The Territories” brings us back to the States and Detroit’s Big Time Wrestling from 1978! This show will answer the questions, “What does a lock-up tell you about a match?” and “Can a noogie get over in the late 70s?” Plus, we’ll get into the unaswered questions of, “Were the Funks born 40 years old?”, “What’s Phillip Seymour Hoffman doing at Detroit TV?”, “What the hell is collegiate wrestling doing on a pro wrestling show?” and “Why in God’s name are your Big Time announcers INSIDE A STEEL CAGE?!?” Also in this episode, this Promo About Nothing hits a sour note, a shout-out to a talent recently signed to a contract, and IT’S SURVEY TIME! Take the survey and let us know your thoughts on the podcast: tinyurl.com/WPANsurvey
