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?

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!

And of course, we can’t get away without talking Montreal! Plus, The Kingpin talks “Work Or Shoot” in his own career, and America’s Game rears its head once again – it’s the Dirt Sheet Shuffle and Milonas has a chance to have a .500 record!
