Ring Of Honor Wrestling’s “The Brawler” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett are long-time veterans of the podcasting mat wars. That’s why in this episode, we’re showcasing some killer content from the BDA Radio days that we’re betting you haven’t heard before. First, take a listen as we recall the Weirdest Venues we’ve ever seen independent wrestling performed in. Some LITERAL outlaw mudshow stuff. Then, we take you step by step through A Day In The Life Of A WWE Extra, back when they were herded in like cattle and treated like dirt. If you’re one of the many that missed the BDA bonus days, this is new to you! Plus, a CLASSIC Promo About Nothing with guests Scotty Slade and Julian Starr, the two Brians may or may not have things to be off celebrating, and stay tuned ’til the end for info on how YOU can participate in next week’s WPAN!
Ring Of Honor Wrestling’s “The Brawler” Brian Milonas’ situation is addressed this week, and referee Mike Crockett and Brian Fury (@xbrianxfuryx) have a MAJOR, MONUMENTAL, EARTH-SHATTERING ANNOUNCEMENT! You gotta hear this to believe it. Once that is over with, in the aftermath or wrestling returning to TNT (and we give our initial thoughts on All Elite Wrestling’s Dynamite), we look back at WCW Monday Nitro – The Good, The Bad & The Nothing! From the big things like the New World Order and Sting, to the obscure crap like the fake Tonight Show and bizzaro Hulk Hogan, we talk about stuff we loved, stuff we hated, and stuff that just didn’t amount to anything when it comes to World Championship Wrestling in the mid to late 90s! Plus, this Promo About Nothing is not Dragon, we get side-tracked by Jimmy Dean sausage, and Kizarny gets called out (WHAT?)!
Ring Of Honor Wrestling’s “The Brawler” Brian Milonas was bleeding buckets this past weekend, and referee Mike Crockett and Brian Fury (@xbrianxfuryx) are talking about it! Milonas made a (red) splash in his pay-per-view debut at ROH’s Death Before Dishonor – his face a crimson mask as he battled in a Barroom Brawl alongside his Bouncers partner the Beer City Bruiser against Vinny Marseglia & Silas Young. Find out why this was a most surprising turn of events for our old outspoken pal! We also discuss the end of Matt Taven’s much-maligned title reign and why some rejected it. From there, we review the new wrestling calendar and the New Era of Televised Wrestling we are entering this week. We’ll analyze each day of the week and what you can expect from RAW on USA, Smackdown on FOX, Impact Wrestling on AXS, AEW Dynamite on TNT, NXT on USA, Beyond Wrestling’s Uncharted Territory on IndependentWrestling.TV, plus MLW, New Japan, WOW and more! Also this week, this Promo About Nothing is sheety, an update on Crockett’s blast from the past, and A MAJOR, MONUMENTAL, EARTH-SHATTERING ANNOUNCEMENT comes next week!
Ring Of Honor Wrestling’s “The Brawler” Brian Milonas has his name here for no reason really, as referee Mike Crockett and Brian Fury (@xbrianxfuryx) harken back to the olden days of the WPAN and Episode 048, The Name Droppers! In that episode, we talked about interesting run-ins we’ve had with the well-known stars of pro wrestling. Now, some two-and-a-half years later, Fury is sharing some of his tales of rubbing elbows with the legends – and contributing as well is a podcaster in his own right (just not currently) and the former Chaotic Wrestling owner Jamie Jamitkowski (@JamieJUCW)! Hear about how Greg Valentine prepares for a match, which wrestler roams around middle school classrooms naked, more toe talk with Tony Atlas, why Jamie was keeping tabs on Sunny, what everyone wants (that Fury doesn’t), what caused John Cena to walk out of a Chaotic show after one match, how Ricky Morton feels about Jerry Lynn’s spots, why Big Show lectured a guy at baggage claim and so much more! Many names are dropped and you’ll love every minute of it! Plus, this Promo About Nothing is hung over, Crockett’s past comes back to haunt him, and everyone’s career is over in Woburn, MA!
Ring Of Honor Wrestling’s “The Brawler” Brian Milonas is anywhere but here, so referee Mike Crockett and Brian Fury (@xbrianxfuryx) do the damn thing and sit down at the New England Pro Wrestling Academy with one of its standout students – “Top Talent” in Chaotic Wrestling, Beyond Wrestling, Limitless Wrestling and more – Christian Casanova (@Kill4nova)! We chat with the former “Thriller Of New England” about the Michael Jackson gimmick he started with and why it took him so long to shed it, how Crockett’s amazing idea for Christian went south, repping that Killanova Culture, working with REY MYSTERIO, getting spots on ROH and EVOLVE shows in the span of a week, and so much more! Plus, this Promo About Nothing leaves a bad impression, Ivar has a cold one, and guess who’s gonna show up on pay-per-view before showing up to do a podcast?
Ring Of Honor Wrestling’s “The Brawler” Brian Milonas doesn’t show up anymore, so it’s referee Mike Crockett and Brian Fury (@xbrianxfuryx) being joined by our oldest pal, one of the hosts of the podcast “Truth, Justice & The New England Pro Wrestling Way” (@prowrestlingway) Matt “Tarzan Taylor” Spectro! It’s been over a year since we’ve reviewed a pay-per-view with Tarzan, and with the King Of The Ring being revived in 2019, we figure why not take a peek back at one of the most reviled KOTR shows from 1995! We get more Savio Vega then anybody could ever handle, a heaping helping of Hendrix, just enough Mr. Backlund, Mabel as a luchador, a vomiting King Lawler and a main event that makes us want to puke! Also this week, this Promo About Nothing eats your ass, Brian & Matt’s poor mid-90s fashion choices, and will Milonas EVER be back?
Ring Of Honor Wrestling’s “The Brawler” Brian Milonas is again missing in action, so referee Mike Crockett is joined by permanent guest host Brian Fury (@xbrianxfuryx), owner of Chaotic Wrestling, and we welcome special first-time guest The Ray from the For The Pops podcast (sometimes) to the show! After we introduce our long time friend and get the pleasantries out of the way, we tackle a fun topic – the biggest HOLY S#!T moments in wrestling history! Does one come immediately to mind? We think we know which one, so we toss that moment off the Cell in the first couple minutes. We dig deep for some of these. From WWF to TNA, from the 80s to the 2000s – what’s an obscure moment that made YOU say HOLY BLEEP? Plus, don’t go messin’ with this Promo About Nothing, Ray likes tits, and BrawlDaddy is a top guy!
Ring Of Honor Wrestling’s “The Brawler” Brian Milonas is out gallivanting with the Beer City Bruiser, so referee Mike Crockett called on Brian Fury (@xbrianxfuryx) of the New England Pro Wrestling Academy to give special insight on pro wrestling training. In fact, this Saturday, August 31st is one of the Academy’s Fantasy Camps (email firstname.lastname@example.org for info), where you can start your wrestling journey, or just try it out for the day with no strings attached. Fury takes us through the entire day – what is expected of participants, what is taught by the trainers – it’s basically a crash course in sports entertainment. If you’ve ever wanted to step in the ring just once, or wanted to give a go at something more, this is the episode for you! Plus, this Promo About Nothing is UNACCEPTABLE, we talk AEW vs. NXT, and Sonny takes a piss!
Ring Of Honor Wrestling’s “The Brawler” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett have seen the Twitterverse hype. We’re on the verge of the next great wrestling war on television between WWE and AEW! So I guess it’s time to talk about it! Not only that, but we have our ears to the ground with independent wrestling and have seen back and forth battles between promotions at the local level then and now. Our guests this week have observed it, and been in the thick of it too – Chaotic Wrestling’s Brian Fury (@xbrianxfuryx) and the New England Pro Wrestling Hall Of Fame’s Sonny Goodspeed! We review some of the tactics that unscrupulous promoters will use when “invading” enemy territory. Plus, we get into the local feud that caused some waves last week, we recall usurpers coming to town and challenging our home promotion, Sonny opening a school in his old trainer’s backyard, and a whole lot more! Also in this episode, a crushing Promo About Nothing, Milonas causes some real damage in ROH, and Sarge’s Tall Tales returns with another whopper!
Ring Of Honor Wrestling’s “The Brawler” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett have done so much podcasting that we’re sure you haven’t heard all of it. That’s why this week, we’re sharing some of our absolute best stuff from when we were doing two shows a week for BDA Radio. First, it’s our Favorite Enhancement Talent – yes, the “jobbers” as some call them. We grew up on those Saturday morning squashes, so this one holds a special place in our heart. Then, we break down the Best and Worst Entrance Themes in pro wrestling history! So much fun doing these segments back in the day – if you haven’t heard these gems, they’re new to you! Plus, an all-time CLASSIC Promo About Nothing, we got voicemail and Brian hopes “Romeo” Roma skips this one!
