A highlight from The WWF Steroid Trial
"A great time and speaking of which we're having a great time in Europe on the fozzy, save the world tour. I had a killer show at the legendary cavern club in Liverpool, a few nights ago, go listen to the cavern club episode from last Friday. So many amazing stories about the club and the birth of The Beatles, all the other stuff that happened at this crazy place. It was such a great show. Speaking of amazing stories, we're taking a deep dive into the pretty dark story of WWE history, the steroid trials in the early 90s. Dark Side of the Ring covered it. And the new season with WWE lawyer Jerry mcdivitt, who represented Vince McMahon and the WWE during that trial. So today I got two guys to cover the trial from a media perspective. I'm talking about Dave Meltzer from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Multiple guests here on to August Jericho. And for the first time, wade Keller makes his debut, the editor of pro wrestling torch, long-term arresting newsletter, both were in the courtroom for the trial and wade was there to see the verdict red. Dave and wade remember the trial, the witnesses the crazy stories in the courtroom Hulk Hogan's involvement and the aftermath. They share their thoughts and opinions about what happened then versus how it's remembered today. And what a guilty verdict may have meant for the WWF at the time. They break down Hogan's controversial appearance on the Arsenio Hall show where he made it to doing steroids only three times. And how that impacted the WWE and Vince personally. It's an incredible story and it's starting now on talk is Jericho. So this season of Dark Side of the Ring, there's a lot of really interesting topics. And most of them I know things about but the one that really got me because I didn't really know much about it was the WWF steroid trials from the early 90s and Dave Meltzer who has been

We knew we had another son. Smart, smart name. Twinkle sprinkle. All right. Awesome. I don't know what that is, but all right, that sounds pretty hot. It doesn't matter. That's right. You're in. That's like their neo. Yeah. And I'm all about it. Yeah. Sunny Roberts or Sony Roberts? I don't know. Sunny. Yeah, I guess. 'cause there's sunny kiss, but her name's spelled the same way.

That's true. Big shout out to everyone who does a year sub. They are entrusting us with their entertainment for a year. Or they're entrusting WWE will continue to suck. That's true. More importantly, that. Both very likely. I think our show will still flourish even if WWE was good to be a nice change of pace. We won't have to be like, well, Ross sucked again. Right. Sucky is a bunch of sucks, stupid. I mean, we can almost eliminate that whole bottom row. Yeah. Maybe we'll never hear this again. Stay away to suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked. Yeah.

A highlight from Sean McCorkle and Greg Wilson | MMA Roasted #688
"Greg omera Wilson. Waiting for Sean mccorkle to come. Who knows what he's up to? It was funny. This is the Howard Stern today. People are like, don't like Howard ever since it became a super liberal. Howard Stern is still one of my favorite entertainers. It's a great show. I'll listen to it all day long. You know, I could not agree with someone's everything about someone's politics and still like them and love them. I mean, that's just fucking a person. Yeah. I like love Howard. And I agree most with pops anyway. But he was saying how they were talking about people getting kicked off airplanes for not wearing masks. And they were saying, anyone doesn't worry who refuses to wear a mask in public as an asshole. Like baron asshole before you help think of a cortical. Yeah. But not because the mask just really said that person was an asshole. Exactly. Y'all there. You need me too, buddy. But the thing is, is that think about showing though is that you're like the opposite of an asshole. Like, everyone that meets you. What? He's the nicest person. And in person, you won't meet a nicer person. I'm not gonna say he's a nice, but he's kind of the definition of an asshole. I don't know where you're kind of this, you know? I mean, what do you think makor? Depends on if you cross me or not. Exactly. Everyone has the ability to be an asshole. Yeah, but the thing about like, sorry, I came to my wedding and my dad was like, that McCourt, what a nice guy. Everyone that my wife loves them, like, friends that know them. He'll go out of his way to be nice to people. Like, if I was like, Sean, man, I need to ride some Mexico tomorrow. I need to ride. I feel like someone will come over and give me a lift of Mexico. He's one of those fucking dudes. He'll like be there for you. I just think that social media is not your friend. Certain people are just not good at social media. It might be just want to take out some of my hidden aggression also. You know, like I usually like to find a target like it was Jason Reinhart for a while. It was waltzers named guida's brother. Jason guida seems like a lot of people named Jason. But now then Brendan chop, I don't know, I got to get a target. I need an arch nemesis. Your honor, I rest my case. Okay. No longer need an arch nemesis. By the way, how is your Thanksgiving song? What do you do? I was waiting for my brother's house man. It was really there's really good one of my favorite ones a long time. Mostly because not very many people came. So I didn't have to pretend like I was there like, oh, hi, uncle, bob, it's great to see you. You know, like, I don't know. Mister stories and stuff, but that went different than I planned on luckily none of them listened to this. But. I was able to network with some of my family and get them fake COVID vaccination cards, so that works out. There you go. There you go. I'm just joking. I would never have access to such a thing. Sure. Greg, I feel like you got a lock box. And grant, what about you? It was, you know, it was a very Hollywood Thanksgiving for the wife and I we went over to. We have these friends, your musicians. You have this, you know, but very successful. They produce a lot of hints for a lot of pop artists and they have a big house over in the mount Washington area. And so we went over there, although it's a lot of musicians. And so, you know, I grew up in Texas. And, you know, in here, there were at least I would say a dozen vegetarian vegan options. Oh God. In Texas, the closest thing we got to a vegetarian option was the white meat. I mean, so it's not the food selection that I really accustomed to.

"Have fun was Christmas as a kid. I mean, that's even an expression, right? Happier than a kid on Christmas or whatever. But man, once you become an adult, those responsibilities just start piling up. You got to start worrying about time off and how much time you're gonna work and when the kids are in school and when they're out of school and how we're traveling here and what hotel we're staying at and do we need to fly and it gets expensive and then you've got all the extra added stress of, oh, I gotta hang this light and I gotta put up this tree and then we gotta wrap the presents, but most importantly, the financial stress of, we gotta buy all of these presents. Don't put Christmas on a credit card, hurry to save with Conrad calm. We want to make sure that you hit 2022 the way you planned on ahead of the game. Don't go over spend and kick the can down the road and make it one of your new year's resolutions next year. Say, well, I guess this year, I'm gonna try to get out of debt and save money. Do it right now. All the experts are predicting that interest rates are going to rise next year. Don't take my word for it, throw it in your Google machine, but here's what's happened in the last two years. All of a sudden your house is probably worth more than ever. Why not use some of your new found equity to get the best interest rate you've ever had while we've still got them, get rid of your PMI? That in and of itself might save you two or 300 bucks.

I earned that. The you sucks, I earned. I definitely earned them. How did that all start? Fans are chanting angle to my music and edge decided, hey Kurt, you know what the fan should say? They shouldn't say angle. They should say, you suck. And that's how it started. You suck. You suck. You know how hard that is to my ego, hearing that all the time. That's your legacy here. So much to talk about, but something that actually thought about you a lot this summer while I was in the shower. No, I'm joking. I watched the Olympics, the Summer Olympics. And my son ash is now started wrestling. And

I'm Andrew pizano along with my brother Joe pizano and Eric slam Hamilton. Happy holidays, everybody. Yeah. That's right, it's Christmas time. Oh, Jesus, one of these guys. The week of Thanksgiving, hey, by July 4th, we're all going to be celebrating Christmas in a couple of years. Yeah, probably. Where this is all going. But Thanksgiving, come on, football, and all you can eat food. It's not bad. I've already got you guys your Christmas eggs. For your gifts. Okay. Yeah. But someone stole them. Yeah. You know what? It was supposed to be the I mean someone stole them. Oh, man. Who done it? Just some jobber guy. Yeah, right. Yeah, that makes sense. The worst reveal. No, no. It's not the worst reveal. But it's up there. A few years ago on NXT, we had the who done it, you know, who attacked Aleister Black. It was Johnny Gargano, the whole thing was a lot of fun. Now to try to increase ratings, I'm sure it didn't work. They did a who stole my fake real egg that's not worth a $100 million. Correct. The movie. To reveal who done it. And everyone's looking for it crazily. If someone stole it, they're in Mexico by now. And yeah, I know The Rock's rich, but he can afford a $100 million egg. What is that like a 50 of his fortune? Yeah, yeah. He just spends a 5th of his fortune on an egg and then gives it to Vince. That's how rich The Rock is. Yeah. Holy shit. He's quite the gift. Maybe probably is. A gift. I mean, also certain price threshold wouldn't like, I don't know, the FBI get involved. This isn't something you can call your local cops about. Like someone stole my one. Not even that. Cops. Yeah. Not even that, he got Adam Pearson's Sony DeVille. Wow. Right. Well, it is only a third of the rocks network. There you go. And so I owe you everything. Here's a $100 million egg. Yeah.

On our other podcast, Hollywood hogwash. It's a fun crazy movie. It is. We also just put on there, ghostbusters afterlife. Yes, yes. That was a fun, that was a fun movie. Yes. Nice sequel from ghostbusters two. It has nothing to do with the female reboot the 2016 one. Thank goodness. I can't believe that was 5 years ago. The female one, it seems like it was just a couple of years ago. I was shitting all over that. Everyone did. And it had such a good cast. I mean, it didn't make any sense, but the storyline was trash. You know, they were like, who needs story when you have Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon in the same movie? No, you still need still need a lot of story. It's just shitty Hollywood. It's like, well, what if the ghostbusters were female? How would that be different? It's not, it's not. The only difference is the movie sucked, but like, what does that matter? Well, the second one was pretty bad, so. Then they did an Ocean's Eleven with females. It's just lazy. Yeah. It's just lazy. But yeah, go check out Hollywood hogwash available anywhere podcasts are heard, including the app you're listening to us on right now.

All right, before we get to raw, we're going to skip SmackDown because that was before Survivor Series and it would just feel awkward to do it now. It would also nothing happened on SnapChat really happened. Roman crushed Xavier Woods plastic crown. So that was about it. Yeah. And I'm gonna steal my best comment from SmackDown and I'll reveal that later. Okay. Fair enough. I mean, you know, you don't have to follow the rules or anything, whatever. The rules. The rules of podcast rules of awards. You broke the awards rules. That's a penalty. Yeah. Well, you keep breaking the rule of not wearing one of our shirts at live events. So boom. That's one wrestling. What is this shirt? What is this shirt? I don't know, it's got a fish on it. You know what? He's wearing a super bad shirt. Fair game. Kip sabian shirt. I'm super into kids.

Everyone. Oh, I guess there's only 12 now. And knowing what we know now with Paul Heyman kind of joking that him and Roman stole it, that makes no sense. Exactly. He's like, what do you mean? I don't probably want him New Yorkers. A so Vince tells Pearson to Bill, if I don't get my head back tonight, you too are going to be let go. You know those two words, right? Budget cuts. It

"Hunter. The fuck is that guy? What's up, people? Welcome to AMA roasted podcast. I'm back with my favorite comedian in the world. Greg Romero will. I think you are. I'm real. You're my favorite. You're one of the few people that I imagine your name and I smile. So I was in thank you. I appreciate that. Brief, man. You missed this. So last week, I tried doing like a third podcast, 'cause I was at my hotel. And I didn't know if you're gonna do any podcast this week, so I wanted to load him up. And because of Thanksgiving, so smart, man, listen. You do things. I would never do. So I had Nate to train on, and nice. Well, no, it wasn't that nice, because he didn't know how to put his sound on on the Zoom. So I could see him. But I couldn't so I just interviewing myself. I ended up like as if I was naked to train and he was like, was this going yes, or no? So if you want to laugh, and also, yeah, that's on. The comments were like great interview. This is why I think one of your best. Oh, what are your best interviews ever? So anyway, I was in El Paso, by the way, which is I saw that. One of my hometowns. Yeah. I know, I love El Paso. I love that club. You know, they've redone a little bit, right? Like in terms of the green room and stuff like that? I mean, I heard they had given it a bit of an upgrade. So I look what I'm doing New Year's Eve there. I'll be there for New Year's Eve and so I've heard they've done some good things. It's great. And it's one of those clubs where the crowd comes to laugh. People are there. Oh for sure. For sure, I mean, people don't think, you know, oh, L pat. But honestly, it's one of the longest running clubs in America. And it's all consistently the audience are there to have fun. They're great audio. I always have tremendous shows there, and I've obviously got a good audience there because graduated high school there and I played their million dogs and I love the odor and the Reed family of I love them. They're very good people. 100%. But when I was single, it was I used to go there and it was a lot more fun. I get a lot more work done now that I'm. Gonna tell you that's true for everyone in all of life. You get married? Somebody come right. I actually am writing a bit about that. My fantasy football joke. You know? 'cause all of a sudden you're like, well, I'm not gonna chase puss. We're gonna be doing a little work on my shit. You know? A 100%. Like, I used to look at it. I'm like, I've written so many jokes because I've been married. And I'm like, a lot of that is because I'm not on Tinder, fucking swiping all day long. Exactly, you're not exactly brain power available to do other stuff all of a sudden. I would set my locations for where I was going to be. So if I was going to get El Paso next week, I would start swiping a week early or two. It's just smart. Listen. And can I tell you something? That is my greatest regret. Is it regretting? I just one of the things that drives me crazy about life is that I was single for so long. And then that fucking device finally does, which is what the one thing I wanted to do, which was fine because and I was already, you know, with my engaged and, you know, down that road, so I never got to try any of that. I dropped out at Craigslist. Well, as the level that I, but also about Tinder and bumble, you're a lot more like excess expendable, basically. People are just like, oh, next, next, next. And it's more about matching for a lot of people than actually going on the date. And it becomes a fucking video game. If people try to score a match. So it's a huge time sock a lot of times. Crack can you hear me? Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. But anyway, there was one time though, I went to a strip club at El Paso and this was like the worst strip club. It was like, you like brought your own chairs, kind of a thing. They were so and this girl came up to me, this like cute Mexican girl, and she's like, hey, I'll have sex with you for $200 in your car. And I was like, how about 40? She's like, fine.

A highlight from Episode 135: Survivor Series 2001
"Listening to grilling JR with the voice of wrestling, mister Jim Ross, Jim, how are you, man? I'm good, Connie. I'm good, good to see your jovial cheeks. You're a handsome face. I'm glad to get back home and Jacksonville now. Move around a lot, you know? Yes, sir. A transience. That's rationing people. We relocate, but anyway, I'm a Jacksonville and I was saying before I went on the air, you know, heck, I got Monday morning. We were recording this on Monday morning. This transparent. It's a nice way to be. It's not always that way in rattle kids and being honest and it's not always that what kids, so I was looking at my. Device what does this thing called? iPhone, a tablet? Tablet. I'm looking at my tablet. And I see a notice that I have a flight upcoming flight information. And I look as it went with it. As tomorrow, I fly to Norfolk, Virginia tomorrow. Can that be? So anyway, the show never stops, and we keep going rolling and be honest with you. There's no place I'd rather be. Than on the road to an AW wrestling. That's my sanctuary. That's my safe place, as you will. I'm not supposed to. I'm trying to be cool and trendy. And I'll try not to call you Tom Conrad. Are Brian Danielson. Daniel Ryan. Oh, God. Nobody cares. Listen, man. Shake that shit off. What a great job you had, you know, calling an incredible pay per view, putting incredible lyrics to some incredible music, if you will, this past week. I think people are going to be talking about full gear for a long, long time. And, as everyone is listening to this, we had the follow-up effort last night on dynamite, rampage, of course, this Friday night, but man, hangman Adam page, A Star Is Born. You got a new champ. Yeah, Adam had the 9th and he needed. Yeah. Yeah, the performance more specifically that he needed. And give a lot of credit to Kenny Omega. You know, omega's bodies battered. He's got bad shoulders. He's got he's got to take some time. I don't know what he's going to do if I or him and I'm sure Tony Kahn still somewhat the same way you got to get the guys some rest. He's got a heel a little bit. And quite frankly, that's not a bad thing. 'cause he lost the title. Now he can not not go invisible, but he can be less prominent on the shows as a wrestler and more as a personality until he's healthier and but Kenny Omega deserves a hell of a lot of credit for making that match with Adam as good as it was. And here's the other thing about that Connie. Wrestlers were all the same crazy as bitters. We're all paranoid, we're all insecure, all that stuff. That's all true. But I think that, you know, I think, I think Kenny just he elevated. He made sure that the transition from himself to hangman page was fought on. And it was. So I really enjoyed that they're outing. But I was going to say this. That was full gear was a hell of a show. And I'm not going to be monsoon it here to pat myself on the back of record my arm, but I think it was generally considered a hell of a show. Yes. Some matches were better than others. People were perception. And that's always going to be that way. Everything's not a tie. Everything's not four stars on the money or 5 stars or whatever. But I think that to follow everything on the card. Where some of the best workers in the world leading in to your match. What do you do to make your mass different? What do you do to tell a better story? What do you do to execute better? It's all there. So in front of you, that's a hell of a challenge for two guys. Because they knew when they were out there, I mean, this is like being in baseball or being a quarterback in football and you got a two minute drill here. You got to deliver. It's not an option. Well, we should deliver here. No, we have to deliver here. And those guys really roast the occasion. So I think page is going to make a great champion. People are already talking about Brian Danielson. I got it right. And as the number one contender, so and that match will be one of the great experiences of hangman page's career. Danielson is a Maestro. I say it right there by Brian. He's unbelievable. I think he's arguably not only the best wrestler in the world, but one of the best wrestlers of all time, and he's finally getting the show, what he can do, and I'm excited for what's next, and people are going to be talking about this paper review for a long, long time, and we hope you guys enjoyed dynamite last night with good old JR, and probably catch him again next week, man. You're back on the road. And next week, I think, is the Chicago Thanksgiving tradition, you guys are doing it again, right? Yeah, it's sold out. You know, it's just amazing. That city if that's not the home, the home home base type thing of the hotspot for AEW, I don't know where it is, because look at all the stuff we've done in Chicago this year. And successfully, not just that was okay how. This is the big building. I think downtown. Which I like because hotels are close by. And you get to fly out O'Hare on Thanksgiving morning. That's always a joy. So yeah, I think that we're just on a real good role and there's more pieces coming. And how Tony youth Tony Kahn uses him as certainly his prerogative. I'll say this, and I should say this and I know it's going to come off and ask kissing. But it's not. You know, Tony brook to hell a show. Let's give the Devils do so to speak. He booked a hell of a car. And one of the reasons he did it because he always willing to receive the input of the talent. And I remember Bill Watson that time and time again, because I would be sitting on the cowboys main event guys when I was very, very young taking notes.
A highlight from Grant Dawson and Chris Camozzi | MMA Roasted #685
"With roasted podcast. I got my buddy Chris camosi. I'm watching your fight right now with emiliano sortie actually. I'm actually watching it right now. Holy shit, man, I mean, you might be the toughest person in the history of the world. That first round, he had that rear naked locked. I mean, they said you were going out and you were just like, no, right? Yeah, I mean, it wasn't close. I've been working a bunch of defending submissions. I guess I got to work on just not getting in them, actually would probably be better. I mean, 'cause they were like, I think it was Kenny's, like, oh, this fight's over. This fight is done. And no. And then you came back and beat the show from the second round. Yeah. Almost won the third. I mean, it's very, very close fight. Yeah, it was a wild one, man. I think it was like a slip and slide in there too. I don't know if you could tell just falling all over the place and it was crazy. It was a good one though. That was a great fight. Your last fight was good too against Cory Hendrix. He was a tough tough dude. I mean, do you think that that went perfect for you? Is that how exactly was it going to go? It was actually a lot like I thought it would go. I wouldn't say perfect 'cause perfectly, I would have finished him in the first round and not had to fight three rounds, but it's pretty crazy. Like all the positions that we ended up in on the ground was everything that I trained for. Literally in the back warming up. I wish I had video warming up in the back. It was the same thing like he took my back, how I got out how to reverse it. We had been rehearsing that stuff 'cause we knew that he's good at taking the back. We knew his ground was pretty good. And then striking wise, I would say it went exactly to plan. It was a perfect case scenario, literally, I wish I had all the training videos because everything that we trained happened. Yeah, no, Corey's good. I've watched Corey find a bunch. I've been following forever. He's a tough duck dude underrated guy. I mean, you won. I don't understand how you make the playoffs, because you be Cory, you pretty much, I mean, sorry, if I was an amazing and the fight before that, you want, I mean, you beat a guy I really like a guy that people didn't think you were gonna beat. He's a Ferrera. Like why are you gonna make the playoffs? Your guess is as good as my man. The point system I think what PFL is doing is really cool and it's unique and I love the idea of it. I think they got to tweak the point system a little bit because I beat Cesar Ferreira, Cory Hendricks beat I forget his name the Norwegian guy. Yeah, yeah. We beat both of those guys in the something like that. We'd be both of those guys in the same night and they both moved on to fight each other in the playoffs and Corey and I fought each other in the undercard outside of the playoffs. So it's a little weird. It was like two guys got hyped to fight each other in the playoffs that both just lost their previous fights. Did you buy something? Or something? Was it like, did you hook up with one of the matchmakers? Why? I know that back in the day you were kind of, you know, you were mosey. I do I do all right myself. We got Dustin Jacoby here too. We're heading up pheasant on right now. Austin, how's it going? Man, congrats on your freaking three fight winning streak, murdering everybody, four or 5 7 four 5 8 fight, but in the back of the UFC four on one, yeah, man. Oh my God. Dude, you're murdering people. That last guy was like, that guy was like the terminator. He just kept going forward. You just kept punching him, punching him punching. He was tough, man. He said, the first job I threw bust out is two front teeth. So imagine fighting for, you know, ten, 12, 15 more minutes, whatever it is with your teeth, jacked up. Dude, nobody wants any piece of you, man. He finally learned how to wrestle and tell me about it. I've been through it to get to it. That's what I tell everybody. I've been through it to get to it. And, you know, the experience is everything when you can you had the skill and everything else that goes in there as well. So you got Bill dogs, by the way, very funny comic. He's with us. I'm talking about Chris kamosi and Dustin Jacoby. They're going on a hunting trip. They're not manly enough. People up in the octagon. They are glory kickboxing champion. What are you hunting for, though? I mean, that's telling. Are you going for Elk or what are you going for? Right now we're going phenomenon. So we got this guy right here to find him. That was nice. What are you doing? Do you actually eat it or now? Oh yeah. Okay. You Kelly, you gotta eat it. What does it taste like? It's always chicken. Pheasant is not that great. It has to be cooked right. You know, a pheasant stew's good. You can make some jalapeno poppers, throw them on the tray or wrap them in bacon. But if it's not cooked, right? It's not good, man. You gotta really marinate it. It's kind of gamey, but they're fun to shoot. We do. We clean up and we eat them. We eat everything we kill, so come over here. You come out here, we'll take you. Well, Dick Cheney here. So where are you right now? Are you in Texas? We're heading to Kansas.

Now that he's trying to be a character, you find out, oh, this guy's terrible at anything. Like how they were like, you know, we're not gonna have any evil heel authority anymore. Now we have two again peers. Both heels. The original story was that Sony was gonna take his job, but now they're both heels and they both hate random wrestlers for no reason. Zero reason. And they're still on both shows. I just assume they're both racist. Sony is racist against Naomi. Yeah. And pierce's racist against ray and Dominic. Hispanics. Makes sense, man. Makes sense. I think that's how you get the most tea is be racist. Yeah, sure. Easy here. Easy heat. Fucking racist. It's like naming a city. It's just cheesy. Yeah, SmackDown wasn't any better.

Yeah, honestly. That show the whole movie. Yeah. I'll just, I assume I'll be busting many nuts. A word diaper, so you see? Yeah. All right, so SmackDown opens with Sony DeVille in the ring along with shotzi, Natalia, Shayna Baszler, and Aaliyah, who are all on team SmackDown for the women's Survivor Series match. For now. Sonya says this Sunday, we will be one week away from Survivor Series. That's great. Okay. And she's like, this Sunday will be one week away. There's only one week. So get ready for this Sunday when we'll be one week away. Yeah, I mean, we'll see you next Friday. Right. But next Sunday. I think maybe maybe she meant to say next Sunday will be Survivor Series. But she started with this so then she was like, oh, I better change it up. Right. So then Sony introduces the team captain. Oh, we have those? For the yeah. Does it even matter? How is she the team captain? What does she do as the team captain? What are her responsibilities? Right. Her roles, she responsible for training. We're trading Aaliyah had a wrestle? Yeah. Making sure everyone has their SmackDown shirt. Make sure the mid riff is cut out. They're wearing it the entire match. Yeah. So Sasha Banks gets in the ring and immediately tries to go after shotzi, not being a good captain. No. But everyone holds her and shotzi back. Then Naomi comes out to confront Sonia and Shayna and then everyone starts brawling. So of course, Eric? Did you feel it? The glow? When she came out and no. Yeah. That's the glow. I used to who are you? So of course, the brawl with even number of people leads to a tag team match. Yeah. So we got Sasha Naomi and Aaliyah versus shotzi Shayna and Italia Natalia. Thankfully it was three heels and three baby faces. Like a real who? Are you like who should be on which team? Yeah. Like, for once, just fucking mix it up a little bit. What does it matter that all faces and all heels are on the same, the same fucking side. Survivor Series, we're having heel heel matches, baby face baby face matches. So who cares? Yeah. Anyways, an Italia put Aaliyah in the sharpshooter and grab the rope. But Naomi pulled Natalia's neck down on the rope, and then alea got her first win on SmackDown with a weird roll up, yeah.
A highlight from Don Frye, Sean McCorkle, and Greg Wilson | MMA Roasted #684
"Hunter. The fuck is that guy? Hey everybody welcome to AMA's de podcast. We're back people. I was on a ship for a week, working. We have so much to catch up on Greg Wilson. It was his 50th birthday.

He couldn't make it, because he's working on a show. But he wrote a joke for him like so, it's like I wrote these jokes for comments that aren't here, which I knew when I put the party on Friday that most of my comedy Friends would be able to make it, you know? I mean, most of them we work on Fridays. So but that was my actual birthday and so I wanted to do it this would happen. So we got to talk about you went to the fights. You went to the big fights. Yes. You saw Kobe versus usman, could we ever talk about that? Because I know, I know and I was like, I know incredible too, man. It's so much fun.

You're doing comedy, you're seeing your family, or seeing my family. I was supposed to do some shows earlier in the week, but I ended up getting booked on a TV show, and so I was shooting that till Thursday and then I basically finished shooting and went to the airport and got on a plane and took the red eye out to New York.

Was he like, oh, Brad, who's McGregor on the show, you know? And he was like, no, I didn't luckily, I knew the director, I've worked with him on other shows for CBS and ABC. And so it was just he just, you know, he's a great guy. We love working with each other. You know, so I slotted right in and spent three days working with Pete. So that was a lot of fun. Now I was in where I was. I was in the Dominican Republic. I was like, actually, just like, I just got off the boat. I was relaxing and I got a text from you saying, could we do a podcast anyway? I got to tell the story about the fight. And I was like, yeah, of course. You can do it on your own, bucket, like you could have done MA roasted. We couldn't figure out like Don couldn't do it and Don. It was a cortical couldn't do it. So it would just be and die. And I was like, yeah, you know, we'll just wait till Adam gets to get the refuse to wear a mask at the airport. So I throw Florida. Yeah. Fuck it. I'm not going. But I think fry just just came on.

A highlight from Episode 134: Chris Jericho 2001
"Mister Jim Ross, God damn it. It's play fighting. Hello and welcome to grilling JR. This is Paul bromwell and I'm joined by the voice of wrestling. Mister Jim Ross, JR, how are you this week? I'm good. I'm good, Paul. Thanks for sitting in for the big boy. He's taking care of business, you know? He's ubiquitous. He's everywhere, and he's quite the entrepreneur. So Conrad, whatever you're doing, open successful and I'll rejoin each other soon. He's a busy big boy. You can say that again, my friend. Come on. You're busy as well, Jim all over the place between dynamite, full gear, lots going on in the AEW world. Lots going on in wrestling. Yeah, yeah, for good. Good news for some folks and not so good for others. You're referring I give assuming to the WWE layoffs. I am. I have to ask you, I wanted to talk to you about this before we get into this week is Chris Jericho 2001. But I wanted to talk to you specifically about some of this that's been going on, especially the last year. You sat in the chair, talent relations have had lots of difficult decisions over the years, but we have never seen anything like we have in wrestling in terms of releases like we have over the last 12 to 16 months. Well, you know, you've become a public company. It changes the ground rules. Throughout that, that whatever is the said company. And, you know, even though they had a huge profit, which is congratulations to them, but it was bad timing, I thought to come off the heels of a big announcement that announced great profitability in the third quarter, and now on the heels of minutes after you're finding out a lot of Dallas all of them are good soldiers. Their name came up, and you know what the criteria is? Is it creative? Is it issues that we're not aware of? Is it simply budgetary? Some people overstay their welcome. You know, I don't have a clue. I know that for all of them that got let go, they should not perceive this as the end of the world. Because it sure as hell isn't. There's just no way that you could frame that and say, well, you know, that's why we're going to do now honey. Christmas is here. We don't have any if you run your budget that close. Or you've got no, you know, a little stash of cash. Yeah. And after being after working full-time, you're not spending it on a lot of travel and P and a, T and E or TNA. Any other value in there, but you're able to save somebody and you're not working 5 days a week. So you should be able to save some money on your trance that wasn't picked up by the company. And I just don't believe that any of those talents should be thinking that I guess my run in wrestling is over. It's only going to be over if that is your choice. If your choice is that, well, you know, I don't know. Then you maybe you may have your own answers. Maybe it's not that important anymore, and you're willing to go do something else and explore other opportunities. I don't know that. But I know that one of the questions I used to ask tell us all the time is what is your plan B? And if they had no plan B and they gave me the old line about I love wrestling and this is all I've ever wanted to do and I'm living my dream. If I get to get a contract with you JR, blah, blah, blah. I used to question them on that. Because here's what happens. You get it to the process to this person that has one gold, and that is to be on WWE television. And if things don't work out, sometimes people take make stupid mistakes to try to rectify it or they become less of a team player. They're disappointed in the system. They're disappointed in what has happened. So the bottom line is, it's just all those individuals. Some of them could take time to work on their bodies. Some of them could take time to heal. God forbid they may want to spend more time with their family. And there is this little thing called the holidays coming up in December. So I feel badly for them. I sound like I might not, but I've been in this position. And I always never went into the next day saying what are we going to do? I always prepared for those rainy days. I'm a businessman. So and I think that's how they need to for my feedback. That's what I would look at. Take this time to better yourself. You know, get bigger stronger faster, rest, clear your head, be with your family. Common sense things. But I can tell you this, getting cut from the WWE or AEW or any other company, including companies called the National Football League. You get cut doesn't mean it's over. And I hope that they can bottom they listen and they know a lot dude. You know, I feel for you. But don't put yourself in a rabbit hole and say, I just go, I want to just get away from everything. I need time. Okay, if you need to, take time. But don't get up the next morning thinking, I just don't know what I'm going to do. This is horrible. Yes, it's horrible. But get over it. Get over it and move forward and prove yourself and try to regroup because there's a lot of folks doing wrestling right now. And if you're ready and willing and able and you're good, you're good locker room person and all that stuff. You know what the hell? That is shot. Something else is going to come around. So like I said, that's the main message I would give them. I don't know why all those people were cut. I like some better than others, just like anybody

A highlight from THE REAL KEVIN OWENS - WWE Raw 11/8/21 & SmackDown 11/5/21 Recap
"One self sison. He has the chance to get very acquainted with the Damian and me. Hey everyone, welcome to another episode of. What's wrong with wrestling? I'm Andrew pizano, along with my brother Joe pisano and Eric slammed Hamilton. Survivor Series. The one time of year where you can see raw and SmackDown go head to head. I mean, where else would you see like Kevin Owens versus Sami Zayn? Yeah. Or Kevin Owens versus Baron Corbin. Right. Or ray Mysterio versus Sami Zayn, you could have never guessed you'd see something like that. Becky Lynch versus Charlotte Flair. Get out of town. Thank God for Survivor Series. One time a year, bottom right? Yeah. Who are you? Yeah. Right. It's so silly that they're even still paying for you where each brand puts up their best fighters to earn bragging rights and they do their best to represent the show, even if they were on the other show. Three weeks ago, now we're team raw. And why does pierce care so much if raw wins or if SmackDown wins? He's running both shows. He's running both shows. Yeah. 100%. I mean, I've said it before. Have whatever brand wins have that brand main event WrestleMania. Anything. We've mentioned so many ideas and like anything, just anything. There's been so many times where back when Stephanie was on TV, she's like, you know, if you guys fuck this up, then someone's getting fired. And then they fucked it up and no one got fired. Yeah. Guys, what's my favorite part about professional wrestling? Royal Rumble. Well, like, when what? Just overall, when people build stable. Stables. Okay. And when I was a kid, these were like all surprise stables. Stables that were put together for like a month just for this one show. WrestleMania of the biggest match of the year. Royal Rumble, best match of the year. Right. SummerSlam is kind of fun, right? Survivor Series was a big deal because you're seeing teams you would never see before. Right. Oh Hogan versus Andre, you put together your team. I'll put together my team. You know these bullshit backstage segments that we have to suffer through? We get to go see Kevin Owens try to beg Big E after he screwed him over to be on his team. Yeah. Things like that. Alliances you would never see. It was so much fun. Right. Oh, there was a surprise. They surprised everyone when they revealed the Survivor Series teams on social media, randomly, a few days ago. Yeah. Friday morning or Saturday morning? Yeah, I think it was like Saturday. Yeah. Why? And in the past they had like themes too. Jerry, the king Lawler had a team of his kingsmen. Right. You know? Of course. Well, no, now it's just blue versus red. Or how about your favorite color? Your favorite color out of these two? Why not just say like drew? You're the captain of this team. Assemble your team. And him go around and do it. And then he goes to the ring goes, he did this a few years ago. I've assembled my team. Yeah. First up, a three time champion. I'm just points and then whoever comes out. You know what I mean? Right, right. Show that he did it. And as they come out, you're like, oh, cool. Oh, boo, we're great. You know what I mean? Yeah. None of that, it's just here's some guys here's some guys or have qualifying matches, but they did. Anything they did nothing. Nothing. This year. So lazy, it's just lazy writing. Like you have a big four pay per view. It should be 30 days leading up to what we're going to see on this show. I think Saturday morning, someone in WWE is like, oh, fuck. Survivor Series is like in two weeks. How are they? You don't have teams yet? I'm sure everyone's dying to know. We were focused on the Saudi mania pay per view. It's the only, you know, we're gonna make money with that. We don't make shit with Survivor Series. So if you got like Seth and Owens who were on like every team, really Balor two. Didn't throw in an old like guy like ray and for a moment his son. Dominic, okay, whatever. Then you've got over here, okay, drew, big time wrestler hardy, okay? Diet, it's been like he's been there forever, Sammy's been on every team. Corbin's been on every team. Right. And okay, king Woods, great pick, right? 'cause he's new he's the king. So it's just like, am I excited about this? What do I care? It's like there's always a former like a formula to these. There was like the regulars, the old guy and the new up and comer. You don't even have to be an up and comer, you're just like a newer guy. Yeah. I think the last time we cared was probably when it was like if team Cena wins, the authority leaves. Sure. Something was at stake. Sure. And then this thing came out and then the authority was gone for a month. And they Ziggler ended up winning that one. Ziegler, ziegler short. Yeah. Right. What really sucks is maybe like a couple months ago. You could actually imagine if they threw NXT in the mix because you could have Becky versus Charlotte versus Raquel Gonzalez. That'd be a great match, you know? No, the one year NXT was involved. They won the whole thing. Right, yeah. And then they were like, well, fuck that. They're like, oh, we don't want anyone thinking this is a possibility. Let's give Mandy the title. It's like Charlotte versus Becky versus Mandy. Right. You know? Right. Look at this freaking team. You got Sasha. You got Shayna. All right, who's been buried? And then welcome back. Shot. Shotzi. Natalia, still around. I didn't even know you were still alive. And then who are you? She makes the team. The top 5? Right. She's like, well, this is all we got. This is the only 5. Haven't they always done like qualifiers? Like who's gonna make it on the team? That's what they usually do. Of course. Something like that. Yeah. Right. Last year, Chelsea green was on the Survivor Series team, but then she got into it. She got injured first match and then future endeavor. Never saw her again. Goodbye. She's gone. So yeah, it's a very serious is next week. Next Sunday. To not this upcoming Sunday the following. Yeah, this week it's full gear. Yeah. And then the following week at Survivor Series. One of those pay per views will probably be good. Yeah. Can you guess which one? Can you guess? I think they're doing a full gear in some movie theaters. Oh yeah, they always do that for AW paper. Maybe. Well, were they going to let me bring in my laptop? Yes. I don't see why not? Probably Andrew, but I don't want to pay $50 for food. Right. You have to get up, especially when we have Eric to do that. Yeah, right. It's like you can pay 20 for food at home in 50 to watch it at home or 20 to watch it in a theater in 50 for food in a theater. I know. That's true. That's true. You're still going to pay to watch it there, though. Yeah. And it's like 20, what is it 20 bucks each person? I think it's really probably. It's more than a regular movie. There's profit to be made, Joe. You know, I get that, but what is it? Four hours, just sitting in there and the movie theater. Yikes. Yeah, pretty much. All right, before we get to SmackDown, and raw, let's thank some of our new patrons, so thank you to Lars. The buttons gone, but thank you. Thank you, Lars. We got ridge Smith. Probably. Yeah, he's a big fan of us and Sheamus. Yeah. We got Johnny Cisco. And roll up connoisseur got a year sub. No. So thank you, roll up connoisseur. He only pervades the finest roll ups. That's right.

A highlight from Aldo Juliano, Steve Mowry, and Sean McCorkle | MMA Roasted #683
"Hunter. The fuck is that guy? What's up, people? Welcome to a brand new roasted podcast. Me, Adam hunter. So I'm recording this on Friday. And it's going to come out on Monday. So the fights are tomorrow, obviously, but I'm working on a cruise ship. So I'm giving you a podcast, but we're not talking the fights because they already happened. So we don't know what. So just so you know, if you're watching this video, why are you guys mentioning the fights? It's because we haven't seen them yet. I'm here with my man. Sean mccorkle, who is one of the former UFC heavyweight badass beat Mark hunt and my buddy Aldo. I'll do you here? Yes, sir. Can you hear me? Yeah, yeah, yeah. For some reason you're like frozen on me. And me and Aldo coach wrestling together. He's one of my best Friends in the whole world. I don't him for years. Sean are you with me? Yeah, do you hear me? I'm actually two things, while I'm in Florida, missing the blue angel show that's how committed I am to this podcast. I just got Florida straight up all night driving. I've been up for like 40 hours. But also what we could do is I just give you all my bets for what's gonna happen this weekend and then we'll know that the results are opposite. They did happen because I guarantee you I'm wrong on every single pick. I want a streak unlike anything you've ever seen in your life all the wrong picks. We're going to talk about that. We only have Aldo for like ten minutes. So because we're good for a half hour. Oh good. So Sean. So basically, I started coaching wrestling because on Craigslist, they were like looking for a wrestling coach, right? I was feeling like 15 years ago I'm like, I can do that. So normally when you answer looking for a wrestling partner ad on Craigslist, it doesn't turn out in the middle. So I already thought it was. So I drive down there and the guy was like, what do you know about the adult wrestling league? And I was like, I don't know what that is. He's like, all right, you're hired. So basically, the guy before me who got the job, it was like the adult transgender wrestling league, right? And they were having naked. They wanted to use the math to have naked wrestling in the school. Can you guys hear me? So they wanted to have naked wrestling in the school. For like, the guy was like actual wrestler, but I don't know, basically like you're hired. I'm like, okay, great. So but I was leaving for Africa to do a comedy show and Africa for the military. So a week after I started coaching, the kids didn't know anything. The walls weren't pad. The kids are running right into the walls. They were like, almost, you know, getting concussions. I'm like, first of all, we got to get the walls. I'm not going to coach here. So I hire my buddy Dixon, who's to told me he wrestle. I didn't realize he didn't WWE wrestling, Shaun, right? Oh, okay. So I come back and the kids have a match. We lose 64 to like three, and the kids are all trying like DDTs and fucking like piledrivers and I'm like, I thought you said, I didn't teach this. I'm like, dude, come on, man. I thought you wrestled. So anyway, I need another code. I'm like, dude, this is not good. To me and although he's like, I used to wrestle. I'm like, what? He's like, yeah, I wrestled back in high school. I was part of the whole Mark Schultz, back at the. What's the name of that sketcher? So I was like, all right, so Aldo comes. And he's great. Although like, but he's an old school coach, Sean. Like you specify what that means. So he's old school and the Joe Paterno. See, that's why I wanted my brand. Not that way. I mean, old school was like, middle school kids like, hey coach, my knees. He's like, crap in a pussy. I'm like, although you can't call kids pussies now. Anyway, so although also this is like, this guy is one of the most interesting guys, I know. He drives a Harley. He's a comedian, but he used to be a chippendale dancer. I mean, a real chippendale because like three documentary is on him. Back in the day. And he also has he also has a scar from here to here. And how did you get that scar all though? I got jumped by like 12 Puerto Ricans and a black dude back in Philly cutting through an alley coming home from one of the shows. And had makeup on that night. You know, we did a shoot, so I didn't take it off. It just made me look better. I was picking up my girl. So I'm like, hooking down. I used to take the train back to center city. I used to cut down this alley. Did it every night? It was actually a gay neighborhood that could hear guys. You, hey, baby. Fuck you. But that night, I heard a guy running up behind me, and I had my bag laced on my shoulder. And I didn't look back. I heard him, but I didn't look back, I was just tired. I'm just walking, and when he ran by, he grabbed my bag and I had my head on it so I pulled it and I had my leg came up and hit his knee. It just. And flying this way. He threw a punch and I grabbed his elbow tossed him in my head and I should have just rad. It would have been a great story. He was like, fuck, that's cool. But like an asshole, I stay there, like, I was kicking the guy's leg, and I'm kicking the other guy. Come on, there's two. Before I know I looked up there all around me.
