Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Yeah it was weird irreverent little show an answer. I could watch manser all day long. I love he's. He's him in M._G.. Afra- pry my two favorite independent wrestlers right now I love him to death and they're so different reaches but I love him now. There's a lot of fun indy wrestling how like the the U._S._D._A. Shows. I'm a I'm a big fan of <hes> mega championship wrestling there. They've got their one show coming up. <hes> which is a benefit for the Murray Reach Center Yeah Greg Yarn is a is a is a big part of that and it's fun because that's the one that gets back to the community and they come out and supported as well because I think that's that's an important thing you know. Any wrestling is a reflection of the community in which comes from it's kind of like <hes> <hes> if you've never been if you've ever been new neighborhood where you don't hear birds you're just like Oh. I don't WanNa live here. You know what I mean like. It's it's those little things that you kind of notice but don't notice what a little bit like being new to Cleveland area. What I notice is that Cleveland sports fans in Cleveland wrestling fans? I love the passion they like. I married into a browns and a browns cavaliers and Indians family and like the patch nothing you could do could disappoint them. More the three things the bars but again like I was I was at Mary Arts and Lakewood when the cavs won that title and the tears my wife and my brother-in-law the tears when Johnny Gargano gave his farewell speech at Hey I w and then the adulation like we came back the next year and not like Cleveland. Has This love like if you are from Cleveland. It doesn't matter what you do. If you go out there and you try your hardest Cleveland will love you and they will hold you up now. I love absolutely love that about this town and even with the mixed martial arts steep yo chick and a friend of mine just evil eye like there when especially her like. I knew her in school like I met her in fifth grade when I when I failed and just like that like I knew her back then like seeing what she's doing now. I'm so proud of her likely just recently announced lay. She gets a flyweight title shot awesome. This is something that she's been like working hard on and like but she wanted them to open up that way class so she could compete <hes> evenly <unk>. I'm not I'm not going to classes at all. They take them out we say when he comes a U._F._c. like. I don't know who you are not rooting for you because I it's it's like being in wrestling like having some sort of vested interests all their fights are Swazi like big events. It's like well like okay. You're a new fighter question. I like you <hes>. That's what I get from professional wrestling so knowing like fighters at come from here like okay you're from Cleveland. Even I like you yup jess donor since fifth grade okay. I'm really vested in you so when you do something good. I think it's awesome when you're fight when you sign my U._F._C. Like it's just awesome and that is the thing eleven thing is too I think we if even if you leave certain people we will still love you. <hes> Kenny Lofton knowing his just a local sports legend and I mean in in everyone a championship but you know he could show up at progressive field at the next game in people go crazy because it's Kenny lofton that hero Jim Thome ailing the way that my brother-in-law's talk about Jim. Tommy is like the God they love that man remember when our fell ran over those trick or treaters and we were on Albert Bell side I I don't I'm a board. That was the thing I remember when we through batteries at Albert Bell Master to Sandy Almar like sitting at first base like the pop he gets every time it may announce him like I. That's why I fell in love with this town is is because they know loves Cleveland. More than Cleveland People like I saw this article like you Cleveland Only towery see people wearing Cleveland shirts in Cleveland and that's not true but like I I have acquired like ten Cleveland Shirts and I've been here since twenty any fifty like my wife has about ten times more than that and I love that in like with w w fans are awesome. I do love how how much they love everyone who goes in that ring and like they boo the right people the right people that they booed cheer like an edgy crowd is never flanked unless it's been like the eight hour eight hour mark on his show. They're never flat. I appreciate absolution ten. I remember watching the D._v._d.. Of that that's a Oh oh you it. It's the experience at the show because it was very hot. Yes yes hot. Those Mount Carmel Shows got toasty. Sometimes in the summer they got toasty. Got Yankee not not nearly as bad as that APSO ten because there was another A._C.. Wasn't working or whatever but <hes> the fact that I remember a lot of people would get so stuffy mill after intermission like came back in. I guess that was worry worse because you have to go back into it in <unk> Turner's or is that a colonel neither that was at I forget the venues a special venue that was out with the big ten man tag main event see like the first time I ever saw okay w was the was the the little clip of Alexander Stuttered Alexander giving Kenneth low-rate a backer. What was that APSO Dan and like dot as soon as I saw that like Whitney that's Cleveland? I'm I'm going to Cleveland and you. I need you see this. That was a Tuesday. That's one of my favorite moments of wrestling's the way that she bounced off his knees. Insane that that show is just fun by that was like a great moment like I said the ten man tag match which had Ed Samoa Joe Easy Three Row Josh Prohibition Matt Cross T._J.. Z. I the only name that is is the irrelevancies Alex Daniels everybody else either Cleveland Levin. Oh Young Bucks. How could I fucking forget? The young bucks match. I don't think missing anybody but it's just that it was a star desert that is made of what do you think about. D._J.'s evening signed to annex t this week. I think it's a good fit it. I think <hes> being one of those free agents that if you start thinking of any wrestlers as regions of like always GonNa go <hes> I mean did you have enough shine ago a w maybe leaving Reno but I think I think it's a good fit especially you know with mania coming up in them. You know they're gonNA come through and rate annexed tea and scoop up some talent so he's a good one plug in and fill what he does with it a year here to see algae lot so I'm for the fun thing with him is <hes> I kind of got a heads up but I wasn't told where I was talking to arrest or. I'm not going to say who at the last show in he kinda let it slip about. He signed somewhere he was going to sign somewhere that each edgy was and I'll like where he's like. I must say on my okay like you like you gave me a little bit but you didn't. There's still some surprise so my even my head on my e w w what's Navistar impacting like he's not like re-sign offering ages just re-signed with them now okay. What's this going to be so but it's amazing like I'm super pumper this A._W._o._l.? Like they just start putting pictures of Leica the giant banner on the M._G._M.. In Vegas <unk> advertising the show and that started circulating around the Internet and I'm just like man. This is really cool. This is like you know I'm still young enough like when the Monday night wars like so like went W._c._w.. Like I hit like all that advertisement of happy by right but to see something similar to that to be able to advertise and be almost a legit middle finger to events and all of that and say we're the new kids in town actually have some legs to stand on is really Kinda cool to see like I wish it all the success like I wanted to succeed with the amount of talent they've signed <hes> as progressive as they're being with that talent that they sign <hes>. It's really engaging. I think it's really intriguing <hes> but I mean you know is going to be enough to to be able to keep a foothold or is it going to kind of be the new Monday night wars as it or dispense even carries. He just screwed up got X._F._l.. You know I mean I would think the smart thing to do is which I think this this is what really lacked with the Monday night wars and why team I never did anything. It's don't try to be to be your own thing agreed like so you're saying that recently about how teen as like they've always been good when they carved their own niche and I think like that that's when they were trying to be deputy. That's why they were failing but as soon as they like they were the first ones that do the hardy stuff love that I'm there that should not have worked yeah. It should not have worked at all like two dudes wrestling in their backyard and there's no fans. There's nothing yeah and I think the one place that doesn't get the credit for I'm not a fan of it but I will tip my hat to them underground underground absolutely because they were the ones going while we're going to do our own spin like I always thought like the the six sided ring. It's like that's too hokey to work but with Louisiana governor like we're going to be different but we're going to still have the same bring him everything workmanship at differently and we're going to take different approaches with stuff. It's not listen we're going to be in like doing it in season like they put their own stamp on. It and I think like where Awa does like that could be a big thing. I think I just heard someone say the state. That's a really good idea. Maybe the thing that A._W._S. should do try to do more streaming than anything because that's like. That's the future not like if you just get into that kind of market instead of like Oh. WE'RE GONNA BE ON T._v.. Channel which every pretty much if you're not w e that's kind of thing I have high spots. I don't know where exactly you would go but I mean like the conference. He's got enough money that they could must watch their own thing but they could partner with someone but yeah I mean like like the impact now. What does the twitch stuff and like twitches real big renowned so like it's a smart play really also the way that it's set up on like so I get the channel they're on now couldn't tell you what it is? I get it for some reason. It's like segmented half hour blocks so I can't d._V._R.. It catching up either on twitch or on Youtube but like right now like I love the stuff impacts doing like the weird stuff with Rosemary and alley yeah. They like like they're doing it different. There's abuse I I mean they have like this whole like they're trying to get her soul back from hell and then you should Rosemary's talk to Satan next week they would never do W._B._Z.. But I'm super excited to see where it goes I would I would say this is being the elite like if you took that off the table label. Do you think that all in or nothing would have been as big as it is probably not yeah and I mean that's really it's all these buddies getting together shooting the Shit and being as Goofy as they are and it's it's this weird world of that streaming against this personable side of developing your character a you know. That's what I think. People want more of it. I just heard a radio host. Say this guy listen every week or every day. I should say a <hes> explain like the how how great podcast art because the used to be radio directors out there program directors that would be like well. Don't do this because people don't WanNa hear that and now you get to the point where people are downloading those type like pious making well. This podcast is big like why are we doing this kind of material..
