"Maybe she needs to cut it out. Yeah. Okay, here we go. We'll get down to the bottom of the 9th here, guys. Yeah, let's track this because this is going to be a big finish. Earth thinks he's longer. Michael in trouble. It's on dream straight. There you go. The returning hero. Steps up. Bottom of the 9th. Just a walk off home. Big moment, hunters back. We have our main event for WrestleMania set, or at least mostly in place. We know that somebody is going to give hunter a shot. I say somebody because they're still that no way out pay per view to get to along the way. And that's what we're going to see the NWO come back. But we won't be talking about that next week instead, we'll be talking about what I believe to be the best single year performer that we ever saw and maybe there's some debate about that, but certainly my favorite Shawn Michaels in 97 98, and of course he's going to miss a little bit of time here and there. But his swagger was off the charts, his promos were phenomenal. Everything was believable. But I know he was a burr in your saddle. He was a thorn in your side, but I can't wait to talk about it. We're going to talk about winning the Royal Rumble while he's sick in his hometown in a dome. We're going to talk about losing a smile the next month and dropping the title. We're going to talk about whether or not his knee injury was legit. We'll talk about the backstage brawls with Bret harte. We'll talk about becoming the top heel and having some pretty controversial promos. We'll talk about the hell in the sale, the very first one. Of course, the Montreal screwjob, the very brief promo or program rather with Owen, and then of course hurting his back at the Royal Rumble and that casket match that changed the course of his career and the WWF for several years, and then of course the now infamous WrestleMania 14 moment with Stone Cold Steve Austin. It's quite a story, and I can't wait to talk about it next week, Jim. Yeah, it's gonna be a good. A lot of she likes to use that term deep dive. Yep, there's a lot of digging in this one. And people know that they know my stance. You know, because I love Sean. And I love the man that he's become. And we'll talk about that because it wasn't always looking like that would happen. So I'm interested to talk about this, because it's really a story of a win. Weathering the storm, improving yourself, getting straight in all those things, but that didn't happen overnight. So we'll talk all about that next week. And hopefully, in the meantime, some of you folks will check out JR's BBQ dot com and get you a little bit of sauce or seasoning or chipotle ketchup. That makes me that reminds me. I think I'm going to make a meatloaf next day or two. And that's all about the seasoning and the chipotle ketchup. Well, you know where you can pick all that up.

"To get to. Before he punches his ticket to the main event at WrestleMania. Austin came in at number 19. He was in longer than anybody else, 26 minutes and 46 seconds. Hunter is going to have the second longest run at 23 minutes and 14 seconds. Awesome, it's not done. Now he's got a chair and he takes it to angle's head and perfect head. That's a little assist row hunter. It was often chair shots or legendary, and just to make sure a hundred doesn't feel left out. He gets one, too. It's funny he looked at the fans to ringside with her wearing and what t-shirts are hot and so forth. I was always curious about that. But also these in good hands. He leaves in a good stead. He did not win the Royal Rumble. But he sure as hell made an impact on it. And he left three of the biggest guys biggest stars in a wrestling business laying on their ass as a result of chair shots. It's interesting to look back at this and think about how much wrestling has changed. And you were talking about saying what the fans were wearing, I see a kid there in the front row, wearing a Michael Vick Jersey. Of course, we're in Atlanta. It's got vix number 7 Jersey on, who had just been a big draft pick for them. But yeah, a young version of me is there in the lower level somewhere. Which we could find you. Oh man, look at there. Mister perfect is out. Or is he? He's hanging on. He's back in. He was a master at that. Was he not? Yeah, man. He was just had great balance, coordination. Curve just a phenomenal athlete. He was, you know, perform a perpetuated by his vignettes, they did. He's looking for classic stuff in now. People wanted to see that mister perfect neckbreaker and that fisherman's suplex or the perfect plaques. Oh. Nice hit. He wasn't paying attention though, and hunter got him out of there, so we're down to our final two. Somebody's going to WrestleMania. Again, everybody probably thought it would be Austin. And in hunter, maybe they thought we'll save that for another day. Somebody's gonna get a nice 6 figure payday. As a result of this match and what it will allow to happen at WrestleMania. I like the fact that these guys are smart enough to not rush things. They're letting things soak in and the tension build. And Triple H just got that next gear and who better to be in their Kurt Angle? He's going to sell great. He's going to take big bumps. He's going to respect the match. He's going to respect it, being in this spot. Just love Kurt's work ethic. His team work, because let's face it, Kirk of meeting anybody in a roster. Yeah. I mean, is this real? Yeah. But the real don't sell money. So tickets. In our world, right. Somebody's going to disagree with that all it does. Okay. Whatever you want to say, Islamic you're watching it. I thought that I saw sunny at ringside. Could that have happened? No, that wasn't her, that was a lookalike. Okay. Well, nice trage. I thought she's going to have some issues lately. I hope she gets out of that shit. Oh, I think everybody's pulling for. She's got to make better decisions than her men folk. My grandmom might say. Yeah, maybe she needs to cut it out. Yeah. Okay, here we go. We'll get down to the bottom of the 9th here, guys. Yeah, let's track this because this is going to be a big finish. Earth thinks.

"Right here. Let's take a listen. They are. Are you ready for this? He's got the jets. Waller low the hoes. Well, they're popular. Yeah. Yeah. They're a good accompaniment for The Godfather. They came out with four, and he went back for more. Here's four more. There's a total of 8 ladies out there now. He's pulling out all the stops here in Atlanta, but I don't think he's done. Charles were right. Bure in Vegas go check, go check him out. Why don't we have the club he works at. He runs. But he's he's built a great life for himself and his wife, his family there in Vegas. I should know that I've been in a strip bar many times, but I can't remember the name of. Well, if you run into him, he's probably going to have some recommendations if you're trying to join his train, but smoke train. Because I'm sure he's tickled to be living in Nevada. It's totally legal out there now. You know what we do? When we see each other, Conrad, Charles Wright, godfather and I enjoy some chocolate cake. Well, that happens. We play dominoes. Oh, there you go. We play dominoes. And I absolutely love it. He's a dominant old school soul. And we partner up and play dominoes and some of his guys and also play dominoes. And I think they're too fucking afraid to lose. That's the thing they got to do. Godfather JR's gone over. Godfather can't get enough. He's got to go dance a little more with all 12 of the ladies. This love this. This love dancing. In music and sexy women and all that, they're playing their role. I'm just trying to say there's any women there that I might recognize. I love they're showing you. Oh, by the way, while we were watching the hose, DDP was eliminated because we weren't showing that. We're not showing the guys who are actually trying to win a strip WrestleMania. We're showing the girls in the goddamn, and already it's time for our next entrance. But godfather as a gimmick got a little bit of criticism. Let's say what you want. Did you see that crowd when they heard The Godfather's music? They were ready for it, man. He was over. They loved it. Yeah. Here comes one of the head coaches there to performance center. Prince Albert, Matt bloom, still doing his thing. The vision one offensive lineman. His dad played the NFL. I got to be a great friend with him too over the years. And Matt is just a natural born coach and a great job for the performance center. I guess he's still there. I don't keep up with all the comings and goings as much as I probably should. But he just, he was just a big mobile. I remember meeting him. He was going to be George the animal still junior. Which I was never for any juniors. You know, I'm not just didn't work for me. I wanted to talk a little bit about hunter's pop. You know, he gets this big hero celebration when he comes back, Kurt Angle, who's still performing as a heel in this era. He cuts him off and we know for sure that he's headed to the Royal Rumble. And I guess that presents a bit of a challenge because he was on quite a heel tear when he left, and it seems like, okay, well that's what he's going to come back at. But fans are going to cheer him because he's a star. Right. And they knew that. So they skillfully played into that with all of these music videos and built the big hype and the big return. And oh, godfather's eliminated here. Hunter probably preferred playing a heel to a baby face, but if you know they're gonna cheer, you just gotta lean into it, right? Those guys do. Being a heel is more fun, but hunter was a team guy, really, I'm not going to make some people roll their eyes, but he was just a very sadder, we also forget about Perry, came in with the milenko Benoit and Eddie. And it was kind of an underrated guy. I always thought I thought Perry was a very skilled, totally agree. Loved his stuff. Yeah. And she were way deep in this damn Royal Rumble in the quality of what we're seeing in The Rain. It hasn't dissipated. There's got still working hard. They're laying their shit in. They're telling a nice story. And they're getting some premium television minutes. I'm not so sure that Christian knew he was going down the double double. Leg takedown. Yeah, up next we're going to have one of the biggest stars there ever was coming out, and we're going to make sure we want to track that. It's going to be Stone Cold Steve Austin. And then we've still got a couple more surprises in here. And when it comes down to it, the final four is going to include mister perfect, and one stone cold banks is way in. I want to talk about that and how he became part of the company, because as the legend goes, he was actually under contract, whatever that means, to the X W and you guys had to navigate that. So we want to talk about that and how he became one of the final four and then ultimately it didn't last forever, and we know why. That dreaded plain ride from hail that would happen, I don't know, four or 5 months after this, and that was the end of this run. Which is unfortunate, but you can tell the company wanted chuck to get over. Oh, absolutely. They had high hopes. Listen to.

"Let's see who it is. So Matt made it through, we think one run sequence here. How about a little help here? His brother Jeff now flying into the ring. They had a handicap match on raw, and now it's going to be a handicap match here at the Royal Rumble. Yeah, nice episodic booking, I think. Yes, totally. Yeah. But Jeff, Jeff had so much charisma and he was so beloved, just really broke my heart to deal with some of the issues. And that's why I sincerely hope that he gets healthy or foremost and that he gets back in the ring. Preferably for AW. I can imagine the matches that Matt and Jeff would have those tag team guys we have in AEW. Oh, man. Y'all's tag team division is just loaded, you know, the Young Bucks, FTR. Excuse me for interrupting, but I also see online on my timeline. There's a lot to unpack here. Why is this? That there's a lot of talk with about the hardy someday. I guess the risk goes. Our FTR versus the Briscoe's. And not referring to Jack and Jerry, God bless him. But the ROH Briscoe. So I really like. I love them. I think they're phenomenal individual talents, but I love them collectively. I think they come off as real. Their work is good. And they have their character stuff down pat, you know? And I just think it's an opportunity for both AEW and the briskets and look there goes Jeff Hardy. Nice spot. Really nice spot to eliminate Jeff. So taker was very generous. In the his performance here in this Royal Rumble Match, so many people still standing. Holding out hope that navy just maybe. Jeff can get it done. I thought leader had a lot of sex appeal. Because she wasn't a blond. The redhead she stood out. Cool. She really did stand out. And she was so athletic. All that training she got in Mexico, that's where I met her. She said between orange jobs. And now with the hardys eliminated, who's.

"Line. And here we go. We're getting things started. Rikishi's out first. The rikishi, by the way, had been on quite a tear. I mean, when you think about the beginnings of this guy, even just going back a few years, the sultan was not exactly box office. The district thing, man. He wound up in some pretty prime time spots, including the whole angle with Austin and The Rock. I did it for The Rock and hitting Austin with the car. And then that silly big bump in Armageddon in Birmingham, onto the flatbed with sawdust, but that's prime time spots for what had primarily not really been main event before that. Yeah, he junior for two had a still does. A real good mind for the business. So he took it matters to his own hands and contributed greatly to his character building. Not unlike gold dust. He took him very controversial almost a gorgeous George esque type presentation and made it his own. And you can look back at successes in WWE or anywhere else. The guys that do the best Conrad are the guys that take ownership of their TV persona. So both these guys went above and beyond the Call of Duty and making sure that happened. They reinvented themselves. They found themselves in some bunch of main events. Pretty cool. And he's back here as the classic gold dust, of course, gold us had a few different iterations and just the evolution of the character and then he wound up in WCW, but this is his return. He's not been part of the company, and the Royal Rumble is always famous for a couple of surprises. And man, having gold us back, godfather back, valve Venus back, mister perfect back. There's a lot of surprises here, but the biggest surprise is still yet to come. And I like the presentation here. We went back to the letterbox, we went back to the gold filters. This feels like 1995, 1996 gold dust. And it's nostalgia. I mean, even if it is just 5 or 6 years old at that point. Yeah, I agree. And it's good nostalgia. Yes. Cause both these guys really, they liked each other, they respected each other. Speaking of gold dust and fought two, and their gimmicks had gotten over. Fans were loving it. And these two guys go out there and start this proceedings, aggressively and effectively. I want to mention Sean Michaels talked about Ric Flair and Vince McMahon. They had a street fight that went nearly 15 minutes that even got flare's daughter Megan and his son Reed involved, and they did the fun little spot with bloody flare and bloody Rick and Megan's camera. And that was such a fun spot, especially when you know what would become of it, where I think both Vince and Rick had those fame photos and their offices for years, which is kind of fun. A nice little way to commemorate the chairman and the goat. Having a 14 or 15 minute match here where there's both guys bleeding and they had that iconic shot events peering up with the evil look on his face and covered in blood. Great work by the WWE production crew and Vince himself here. Yeah, McMahon, what the extra mile shows you how great a heal he was. Great performer. And for God, his age at that point in time to the risk of bodily injury across nations nations had one style. H is not going to advance we talked about Austin while ago. Give me more Austin. Yeah. Well, player's not going to compromise this game. So here comes a big boss man. Just returned as you mentioned earlier. Sure had a lot of respect for rights writer. I, of course, Mike, some of my great memories of ray traitor were in, when he was with general scandar.

"To 64,000. That's raw to 64,000. Text Ross to 64,000. Paint your life, celebrate the moments that matter most. In terms of plot available a painter life dot com which slash terms, one more time, text Rawls to 64,000. All right, well, I mentioned triple-A and how they're being promoted and putting on shows and things like that. Do you know who is primarily working on that relationship? Is that a Bruce prichard thing or is that someone else that's working with triple-A? You know, I think Bruce had a whole hell of a lot to do with that. He liked it, and he knew those guys. It worked around him. So, you know, I didn't see any reason why if this guy used correctly and we used the best house they had available for us. Why wouldn't work if they're not overexposed? And the goal was not to overexpose them. Yeah. And I think you mentioned, too, at this point, it's a talent play. You're just looking for new fresh talent to bring into the company. Yeah, they had some matches scheduled for the Alamo dome, not for the main show, but there was going to be some matches there as well. But the rumble itself is announced with 25 guys from the World Wrestling Federation and the rumor is Terry funk. The funker is going to be at the rumble. How did that deal come together? Do you remember Terry being talked about or talked to and being a part of this rumble at all, Jim? Of course. You know, Terry was work. He wanted to be booked. You wanted to say mister everybody else, saying go, Paul, payday. That's right. Certainly not that complex is not really covert about it. It's just the fact that, you know, we were looking to try new things, freshen up the brand, creates a new opportunity for some different talents with different skill sets, and that's how this amalgamation of styles and talents all came together. Well, and two, I think it's pretty cool to have him back in Texas. I mean, it's in San Antonio for God's sake. So having a guy like Terry funk come home, if you will at the Royal Rumble's got to be pretty cool too. Yeah, anytime you get Terry funk on a car, you're winning. How could it be anything else but that? So interior is always welcome in our company. Everybody loved Terry, still do. And so anytime there was an opportunity came out that Terry skills and he had abandoned some of them. We took a we took a run at it, because we all enjoyed working on Terry. Well, JR around this time, Hector Garza leaves EML for triple-A and also for the chance to be in the WWF. He is a match against Jeff Hardy at the TV tapings in Tampa, and he impressed WWF officials. What was it if you remember about Garza that impressed you and some of the other WWF officials at this time? He had a lot of talent, he had a real clean look, was talented young man. And he had a great outing with Jeff Hardy, which is not hard to have. He was really talented and still is always been a big fan of chef hardies. Look forward to the day that he's back on TV on a regular basis for somebody. Absolutely. So that's kind of where we were at that. Garza was an impressive young man that had a good body talented and he was new. He was new. It had a real good look. Always good to have fresh faces. Speaking of fresh faces at a superstars taping around this time, I think a lot of our listeners will find this to be interesting. It's a taping in Daytona Beach and Aldo Montoya who would be the future just incredible defeated Mike awesome. That's right. Mike awesome. What was it about Mike awesome back then? I mean, he's a big guy, which WWF often looks for. What didn't click? I mean, you would think he would be that mold for the WWF. Only would have been Paul if he had. Managed his own business and not take not deviated off the road with the extracurricular bullshit. There's no reason he would have been good. Just imagine what are you going to be walking straight and narrow and he has some issues there doing that at that point in time, unfortunately for him. So again, you're looking for guys to get over. It might be able to get a lucky of somebody. So I think that's where we were with that. It's just trying to get somebody over new and some of it worked and some of it didn't. It's so unfortunate. That guy, I mean, he had some of the most brutal matches in ECW, but he was a big guy that had athletic skill. Could do stuff off the top rope. It's an impressive performer and it's a sad that he's no longer with us. Speaking of Dustin, who you touched on earlier from battle Lebel. Here he is. He's defeating the executioner and Paul bearer with Terry bam bam Gordy. He hits Gordy with the urn after the match and it's Terry Gordy's last appearance for the company. It just didn't work for him at this point, did it, Jim. It was over. We did a favor for Michael Hayes to get Terry to work. A lot of us have worked around Terry for many years prior. He was another guy that was lovable.

"Into the Royal Rumble. So I think that was sort of all that was quite frankly. And also, guys, with limited skills, don't really have a problem working in the realm of Gus. It's basically about a royal where you're going to we all know. And you can take a bump over the top. You could you're in, so to speak, you don't have to have a great work or anymore. You have to be a personality, and somebody that, you know, is somebody that's willing to take over the top rope. Yeah, that people remember. Yeah, that people remember a little bit too. Yeah. Well, JR the next week on raw, mask versus introduced as the greatest wrestler out of Mexico, and you interview him, do you have any fond memories or memories at all of mill? Well, just know he was a very unique guy very protective of his personal, you know, he stood on his gimmick. You know, he was very loyal to in other words, I never assignment mask. Ever. He protected his gimmick as they say, right, strongly. So he's a good he's a good service to the business of the business. He had been around for a long time, he was going to protect his gimmick, and he did. So I never had any issues with Neil. Some guys did that we're working with him because they felt like he wasn't giving enough. It was so whether he was or he wasn't. I didn't work with him. So in my role, I had no issues with Bill masters. So all the locker bullshit about while he was hard to do business with. They didn't like people over. You hear that about 30 guys. So what? That's what I say. Yeah. JR, this is also around the time where there's some type of deal made with triple-A. We have pure off junior and forgive me if I butcher some of the pronunciations of these names and cybernetic go, and they debut against the new rockers. It's not great. But with the Royal Rumble approaching, where you all expecting these high flyers, you know, to come in, similar to a WCW Cruiserweight division. Is that kind of the goal or the play here with the relationship with triple-A at this time? I think the goat will just get some new talent that diverse skill set. And these guys are high flyers and they're fresh for our audience. They're fresh for IRT. So I don't think it's even more than that quite frankly. Well, from the observer, there were allowed NWO chance every time razor and diesel were in the ring. Obviously, we're right in the middle of the whole NWO night, again, January 97. This thing just isn't working according to Dave Meltzer. From the commentary, I get the impression they realize it isn't with Rick bognar, but are trying to salvage something out of Glen Jacobs because he has the size and everyone likes how hard he's trained and has attempted to improve, but even so he's still never shown any spark yet. Was this how everyone was taking a look at razor and diesel at this point? Was that the lens you were looking at him kind of, hey, will we have something eventually with these guys? If the, you know, with these gimmicks, don't work out. Well, we knew we're going to have something to gland because Glenn's too reliable is too solid. And it was too good a human being not to take a chance on, so to speak, but we knew something would come along for Glen. But this deal or not, this deal was more to service the anti Turner sentiment. Right. No more no less. And he needed to look something like big daddy cool. Yeah. And he did, you know. So that's kind of where we were with that ball. It was just, it wasn't for any baldner or for Glenn. It wasn't created for them is a character for them. But we didn't know how long it was going to last and many of us thought it was short term, start with. And my how well it did turn out for Glenn Jacobs eventually assuming the role of Kane. So around this time frame too, it's been in talks for months now at this point that ECW is going to run a pay per view. Did the WWF have anything to do with it in terms of helping at this point? I don't know what you're really mean. Were you guys were Paul Heyman, had he started reaching out around this time in 1997 to say, hey, we're looking to put on our first pay per view, and we'd like to reach out to you and your organization to see if there's anything you can do to help us out or I would think that was probably a Paul of Vince deal. Okay. Just to get it all organized and we knew that all those ECW guys are very loyal. You know, if you listen to busted open, which I do pretty much every day, you know, above always works in ECW reference. And so there was an audience for it. And it was a fresh idea and a lot of the guys that were infamous in ECW were still working. And so they were very motivated to.

But i think the president are still down in florida and they like sharing apartment whereas ali's not because he's he's been main roster anyway. Yeah so yeah be guessing yeah parody. It was just ripped out. Didn't take us. Moscow wasn't allowed near eighty one going to rumble debut staying test back any suit and now you can just hear that phone We have a problem. You just come and push debut breeze little bit forest get out. How does team how no team. How never unit which was great and literally speaking of unions edge. Obviously back is huge. Never thought i'd see edge again. Christian is back. Oh my god edgy christian in the same ring like i never thought i would see that like other than interview. Spot tremendous tremendous and apparently christians fighting. So he's gonna be fighting against a engine. See weapons opinion have never been high on christian. I wasn't until you went to me. I fell in love with the dana. But i once he came back from back. Wwe i just couldn't get into it of it like that stuff and that was great. It's just. I'm pete so it was beautiful to see him at edgbaston and a fortune to be the new. You want edge that hurt. yeah kind of. Yeah and it was never going to be to be christian. But yeah so. We got the final. Obviously messiah seth. Rollins is back returned to twenty-nine yes good to see sas back. And i'm glad yeah. I'm glad it's still messiah very very glad. But it still desire. I worry about him being on smackdown with vermin such good hail and the messiah character in such a good. he'll ways the face on smackdown face. That's why i think edge is gonna over who other than wnyc. I think. They're going to daniel bryan seth at wrestlemania. That's why i think now. Brian hasn't won the rumble. Which is why. I think edge will gopher think you. Yeah i can. I can handle it. But that's why i think because they haven't got any other faces other than reading you both rumble winners going for smackdown. Titles i think role will get as out of limitation chamber alive. That's what i think. Probably gonna think. I think shameless.

Wuhan coronavirus cases spike again as outbreak shows no signs of slowing
"A few thought men. This corona virus is probably just GonNa Peter out and go away like I did. That was misguided thinking king and I am glad that I'm never going to be trained to be a doctor because I would be a shitty doctor so you just you just. Don't listen to a word I say on this podcast. Don't listen I thought so. You were over blowing. This turns out you weren't on Wednesday alone. China reported thirty seven hundred new cases of the Corona Virus and seventy three new new deaths bringing the overall infection. Totals to over twenty eight thousand cases reported while in mainland China and the death toll to almost six hundred in May not mainland Amen China so far. That's only a few weeks in. If you got some of the dams I got for being the krona virus. Guy You wouldn't be able to sleep at night. Well I do want to say one thing. You would be shitty doctor but you'd be a real fun doctor because you'd be one of those doctors that doesn't judge you know what goes until you're dead. You buy power only live once. Dm from someone on that. Got A notification from Chinese national that worked at a crematorium and said that fifteen busloads of dead bodies time all sorts of fucking only only used to busloads those those rumors okay. There's tons of those tons of 'em this I'm saying what's reported by the Chinese government to the media. It's all right so Almost four thousand of those twenty eight thousand active cases in China of the Corona virus are considered critical so the death toll is going to continue to climb the official shaw the unofficial whatever. It doesn't matter a lot of people it's a bad situation. The US has twelve known cases. Total nine people have been detained at our borders. I do too the new travel ban of trying to keep people with the krona virus out in hundreds of Americans who were evacuated from Wuhan. That's the epicenter are being held in quarantine AH and military bases in California until they can be certified for reentry so the. US is doing a pretty good job trying to keep it out of our borders only twelve cases in the country country. Not so bad hell. Yeah we are why we built the wall man those practice. That's right yeah. The walls walls really paying off now. Hong Kong is also doing a fourteen day. Quarantine is they have twenty. One cases confirmed in the city and they do not want any more same with Taiwan. Basically China is aware they need to isolate themselves and contain heinous bread as much as they possibly can because they need to contain it even within their own country And they Chinese experts expected it may take about six weeks to stop the spread from continuing to grow and then of course after that six week period. If you can stop it from continuing to grow then you can deal with all of the thousands and thousands and thousands of people who are infected stuff. Tell you what's scary. Suffer people in China. They be able to do that in four weeks. They've just everyone not sit got on the other side of their wall which is is pretty impressive. One if I know my history correctly I don't know if that I don't know if that checks out see what I'm saying. Oh I don't I don't think it's already have the wall. Think about it with right but they I only have it on like between them in one country. I it's leading to nightmare situations like the diamond princess cruise ship. That's being held off the coast of Japan and Quarantine. This is thirty seven hundred people on a cruise ship who got held because ten people tested positive for corona virus. They can't go back to Japan now. Twenty are sick with. They're going overboard if I'm on being held four thousand people on a fucking cruise ship. Just continually getting corona virus. And they don't know what to do with him. That's insane shift from. I know what you do your royal rumble. Them it's over the top rope for those events are connected and

Survivor 39 Preview: 7 Things You Need to Know About Island of the Idols
"The heck is is going on with season thirty nine of survivor. I am Rob Sister Nino and hello welcome to the survivor preseason we back and we are ready to go and I have a tag team. Duo of men who went out to Fiji to learn learn about everything that's going on. You can imagine giant paper towel heads of them right here. In the studio. Please please welcome Josh Wig Ler and Mr Mixmaster Mike Bloomer Rob. I'm so happy you put in the money to get get all that paper. Cover my nose on your giant bust of me. Is that really means a lot that you would go the extra mile just for that. I just can't believe that you couldn't pony pony up for the wombat replica for me and because it's just my giant head you couldn't even get mustard colored parachute short yes from rumble from the EPA uh-huh okay. I know you say you said tag team and it just made me sorely unhappy that Josh and I were ships in the night when it came to the royal rumble which is maybe maybe at the at the time that people are talking. That's another podcast. That's another podcast. That's from last week's Robin. Akiva need a podcast yeah. This is survivor lost to right. You're right. We most recently all recorded together on the brand steel simulation of of the season one of lost. Look put all that nonsense aside because this is. This is the main event we are. We are back talking about real. Will you say survivor coming up here. In just a matter of weeks. Jussia perhaps the most truncated preseason of all town certainly since I've been covering survivor as a reporter this is by far and away the shortest preseason and we're GONNA do the people in my mentions. Stop asking me about it. I told you once I'll tell you again. Donut me. Ah The decisions that are far above my pay grade but we're here. It's happening. It's real and I'm so delighted for for this this one for a number of reasons but primarily the primary reason has really nothing to do with survivor the season itself but the fact that I had a very exciting exceptional special co-pilot along the ride with me for this preseason and that was mixmaster. Mike himself making making his survivor preseason debut out there for Parade magazine and I am a proud papa bear of this order becoming a man at thirty nine. Yes yes Oh my God Mike. I'm just so thrilled to finally be able to talk about our adventure venture together. Yes so I mentioned this briefly. When we doted on survivor allender the idols at the end of edge of extinction when there was that thirty second promo during the reunion that made people who were saying what the heck is going on. Maybe add an exclamation point to the end of that question mark based on what was shown and Josh and I were able to go out there to Fiji to cover the pre season of survivor thirty nine my very first time going out there and and I mean I will say with no ounce of Sardonic mean whatsoever that it might have been one of the best experiences of my life. We're going to touch upon you know all the stuff that we got to do there. Were some really opportune moments. I think we've got to take advantage of over the course of this season in particular that makes it a bit different different from other seasons that Josh has been out of you know in the past but I mean I also couldn't have done it without this guy. We have many for gene honeymoon photos together uncomfortable get posted now that the embargo lifted but it has the embargo lifted on the secret texts that must have been exchanged between our respective lives who were serious with US reporting it up in Fiji especially as Angelo was very close to bringing asher bloom into the universe yeah. It's it's been such a long offseason at least in my pain especially sitting on misinformation for nearing six months of this point. I mean maybe it's because my son was born two weeks before edge of extinction and did but I don't know it seems like the past several months and not just because because of the truncated preseason but it's felt very long to me. I don't know if you guys feel the same way. Is that a real that your wife's text is. There is a little bit of correspondent. There was some while there's a different time schedule. I think we were trying to you know remain as much out of the Doghouse as the war your dog houses possibly be about dog house yeah but for the fact of the matter is you know we were across the world doing some pretty ridiculous things in Fiji Asia able to you know talk about it and talk about the fact that we were doing absolutely silly things together. We're going to be talking about over the we were cast roommates. We shared a room. We slumbered into Hot Fijian nights together. We had we had lots of lots of toxin and planning sessions and strategy sessions just great bonding moments that occurred between Mike Bloom before lost down. The hatch was even a twinkle in our collective active. I at that point Mike but you can we we've been on a great journey together this year and much of it blossomed and began here. You're on the island of the idols so it is it is our great pleasure to finally open the doors to this secret place and finally talk about it a little bit so let's set up what we're going to do here today. So Josh Mike have been out to Fiji. They were on location. They learned everything I myself. This is how I operate. I put my head in the sand. I try to learn as little as possible about future survivor seasons where wherever I can could help it because for me then it keeps it fresh as we go through it in the real time and so what we've done here today is. I'm in the blackout route. I have not followed anything survivor this morning and so I am going to learn and react to whatever Josh and my don't lie to me. Don't tell me like fake things. That aren't true. It's alive with you know don't do for that but I then I will get to react to the things that you were going to tell me and the listeners about this new season of survivor. I like okay. That sounds really fun and there's certainly a lot as well. Josh and I have come up together. it's a lot yeah seven things that we learned while going on set set for survivor island of the idol of it deals with the titular island itself some with Boston. Robin Sandra some with the cast Cetera so there's a lot to experience over the course of that week we we are in Fiji together and I'm happy to finally get into it as Joshua's alluded to yeah. Here's what I know. We have rob and Sandra are going to be there. I've been seen commercials for that and they're going to be coaches of players. That's that's from what I understand. That's the that's all I've got island. I think we you can start there and elaborate. I think is going to be easy enough to do and I will just begin by being a shameless and I will come out and say T- CHR DOT com slash survivor to plug my stuff and Mike. Where can people find your beautiful articles that you're writing about this season season parade dot com slash tag slash survivor and I'm also trying to come up with a hug page I think for everything island of the idols related because as we're GONNA be talking about near the end of this podcast? There's GonNa be a lot of coverage coming out from both our ways over the course of the these two plus weeks Saturday night articles really as as close for Mike Sake. That is pretty darn. Close the truth away from the number. You know I might give you the closest without going over here. You're you're you're still young and spry enough to to put out a volume that I will never be able to approach again. I can't wait to read it. I'm very loud so that volume does make sense okay all right. So what is number one. What is the number one on the list of the seven things. WE'RE GONNA learn here today. In this podcast well well. Let's start with as you guys mentioned what I think the survivor audience conventionally new or found out about island of the idols as of the end of May Boston Boston Rob Sandra twine are back sort of they're not playing the game and I cannot say this enough right Boston. Austin Robbins Sandra will not enter the game. They will not become players. This is not a big brother. Fourteen situation says it they're going to be serving as advisers for the entirety of the season living out there on the titular island of the idols and we'll get into you know what what exactly they're going to do in a little bit but I also want to mention that as well you know. Josh put up a great interview with Robin Sandra that we had the opportunity to go visit the idols yeah. which was I mean Josh? You can talk to your first reaction to this but this was a biggles shocker for me at least when we found out this was happening. Oh yeah no hugely really surprised you know one of the things that I was going to do when I got out there was I was gonNA. I was GONNA come to Jeff. PROBST and Matt Van wagged in with like a list of suggestions like all right. You guys need themes. I got themes the themes he wants themes AB- slinging themes at a discount and a free free of charge charge just ideas take them have them get away with extinction and start coming up with some things that you can do if you need ideas and I'm nowhere even in the realm of the vicinity of the closest approximation of the center of the list that I have anything resembling Boston Robin Sandra Diaz twine and their gigantic fricken head statues were secretly inhabiting an island that everybody would be going out to visit visit so when when I learned this information I did a lot of like the wand off caliber laughter directly Jeff Jeff probst space as I was. I was finding out this information for the first time because I was just I was astonished. I was shocked I was tickled by it and it was presented to me as basically like a sentient ghost island right like ghost island hinged on this this library of artifacts this like a haunted museum museum a spooky playground. If you will that is out there that's populated by all these different relics from survivor seasons past. There's really not a ton of that. Personality popped on the screen. I think and I think that the idea behind I o is making I have affectionately come to call it though type doubt it looks like a lower case. Ll which may also be appropriate literally getting high it was described to me sort of as a sentient ghost island ghost island with actual people representing that personality and they're being this really whimsical bent to it and having Robin Sandra out there living it up ah talking the talk walk the walk and a lot of Boston rob. Ghost in evolution strategy also yet to be net seriously really. Do we have any we've ever had goes to Sandra. We did not we did not have Sanchez goes. We did have Boston Rob's ghost. We had Boston Guide as well if I call and both of these things have kind of come true he did. This less predicted it. This is another action. That's like the simpsons wins. Did it of audio because if you record for three hundred hours you're bound to today. I want to circle back to what you said about Robin Sandra AH coaches they will not be players because and you you sound adamant about this which puts me at ease because that's my biggest concern going into this this because I remember big brother fourteen very well we just revisited with Dalton Ross's oral history of dance funeral. Josh doesn't know what any of this this is. Josh back in big brother fourteen what happened was there were coaches in big brother fourteen and it was.
Nia Jax Opened The Door For Intergender Wrestling In WWE At 2019 Royal Rumble
"Is weird. What did you think of our her coming in and being a part of this? And the men basically like like, we're not treating you any differently Arcadio super kick on this. I was a little surprised that they had them do moves on her. You know, the their finishing moves on her thought, maybe she would come in. She would. Throws couple of guys around is. She gets thrown out. And that would be it. Right. I'm surprised they as far as they did. Because of the time we live in and they've they've gone to the point where they're completely separating men and women. Well, I shouldn't say that they're they're allowing women to beat up on the men, but the men cannot like it's like hands off don't even know. Talk about the antiquated whatever like we're all raised not too. Yeah. Hit women, and that's a good policy. Like, we it doesn't mean that we view them as lesser human beings or anything like that. You're not supposed to we're all raised that way and stuff. So I thought initially her coming out was pretty cool. Again, another wrestler that I don't have an attachment to. So it lacked a little bit of the star power. But certainly it was cool to see that. But then when she starts getting manhandled by Randy Orton, and others just like is a weird kind of thing going on here. But I thought overall it was a cool idea. The the single fight that I was looking forward to turned out to be one of the lamest. I thought was Finn. Ballard and Brock listener. I thought that one I thought that was going to be this epic back and forth. And it was like no fin hit a couple of great moves. And then Brock was like, I'm done with you. And now is it. Mean the Becky Lynch fight with. Osco at the beginning took like forty five minutes. Yeah. Is it forever? And then Brock listener imbalance of like, three minutes. Part of the whole Oscar thing is they're building Oscar backup to what she was in the development of an is they kinda they kinda knocked her down and said, you're beatable you're now they're building your backup to be legit champion. So that they can have her on smackdown. Becky, Lynch and all them, we're gonna move over to raw. Oh, yeah. I see boiler, right? Yeah. I just I wanted to see seena. I wanted his injury to be fake. It was there. Yeah. You just couldn't see right? Well done. I can't I can't top that. So I'm just gonna go ahead. And and let it ride thanks to Brent Brigham and Sam farnsworth's for joining us. We got a lot more planned
"royal rumble" Discussed on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast
"Now, he's not in it today. Triple h did immediate call where people asked him about LARs Sullivan and his status and triple h seem to pretty much blow it off and say everything's fine. With LARs we're continuing business as usual with LARs Salvin. And and yeah, they're the anytime you've got somebody like this. You're going to have one hundred stories about him. And maybe you don't need to believe all of them. So I don't know exactly what's going on. But it would appear that they're they're building up a reason for either Johnson and did not be in the Royal rumble. Or for his appearance to be brief for him to certainly not win the Royal rumble. So who knows what Johnson is going to do it wrestlemainia? You've got to imagine that he'll be there. Maybe. They'll do a John CENA undertaker rematch where they actually do it for real this time because we never really got an explanation as to why John CENA got demolished the way that he did maybe we will get the lar- Sullivan Johnson and match. Maybe there's another match we're gonna get who knows. But it it would there is a chance that we will not actually see John CENA in the Royal rumble. So essentially covered so much of this with Dan soda in the interview segment, I wanna move onto story number four story. Number four has to do with a tweet that I sent out. So I'm watching raw, and I'm watching Seth Rollins versus drew McIntyre, the matches amazing the fans are chanting. This is awesome. This is awesome. This is awesome. I'm sitting at home on my couch in my head. I'm thinking, this is awesome. This is awesome. This is awesome. And then I go man, we have matches like this more often than not on raw, you know. Even a raw that that is not the greatest ROY in the world, usually has at least one great match on it. We're getting these these these great matches on raw. Every week now because that's what WWE TV looks like. And I told you I was talking about it with soda. I talked about it before soda. I spent a good chunk of time this weekend. Watching WWF superstars for nine hundred ninety two and watching I've probably watched four or five episodes. You know, incense it's been posted. And like, I said, I love this stuff. It's my childhood. It's so nostalgic for me, I it's so much fun to watch in the storytelling in the in the big characters. I mean, it was so character rich, but it was really interesting because they were advertising for the wrestlemainia eight VHS tape and they were advertising for the behind the scenes footage. That was on these tapes. And it was the the stuff that WWE was doing in the Indianapolis area surrounding wrestlemainia eight it was like the predecessor to WWE access. Now, you go to an event like the Royal rumble. They've got Royal rumble access. They've got an x t takeover fried. Day night. We've got not Sam wrestling live, which by the way, for those you paying attention to the state of wrestling on tell you right now, you'll be the first to know it's looking like we're gonna have a Rene young appearance at not Sam wrestling live in Phoenix. If you're going to be in Phoenix, it's looking like, we're gonna have a Rene young appearance..
"royal rumble" Discussed on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast
"But whether you're in Phoenix, whether you're at home thrown Romo parties, I mean, I know guys that don't even watch WWE they watch once a year for the Royal rumble, and they they do the Royal rumble pools, and they do their their their themed. What? Ever. I just it's just a fun. It's the funniest show of the year to me, the Royal rumble is the funniest show of the year for fans and other they do to rumble matches it just bad ass. You know, I'm really looking forward to seeing what they do. We'll talk even more about it. We talked about it with soda. We'll talk even more about it. Coming up in state of wrestling big nude, lots of stuff happening on Ron smackdown. This week looks like a little tease that the major brothers are coming back together on Monday night, raw, you know. I thought curt Hawkins did a very good job as a referee kind of felt like he was auditioning. Just in case. This wrestling stuff drives up before too long lending, people know, hey, I can do this too. Which is you know, not the dumbest idea if you're Hawkins. But because you know, here's the thing. And I said it on Twitter. But when Zack Ryder is the one that's coming in to make the save. You know, you're in trouble. Right. Like all my God. Who who can I when tugboat was getting his ass kicked hall? Cogan would come in and make the save. And the bad guys would go. Oh my God. We thought we could handle tugboat. There's no way hall Cogan. He's like ten times better. When Zack Ryder is your hulk HOGAN, we're in a whole world trouble. But it'll be interesting to see where the major brothers go. I did I was listening to the major brothers figure podcast and people are so tired of this beef by now. And I'll tell you what people are tired of this beef. They don't even know what it's about nobody understands what the bees about because the major they just kind of. I think they just like, especially Zack Ryder he just likes to have tension with people. He likes to be fighting with people on his podcast. I mean, he thinks that that's what makes a podcast. And so for some reason he just comes up with new things to be upset about every week. Like, he's acting like you know, this week. It was a surprise that. I work in radio like what you think I work at ShopRite. We think I've been interviewing people for all this time. Not that. There's anything wrong with working. Shoprite. But clearly this is what I do. Let's not. Let's not pretend we don't know. But yeah, I I don't know. There was like there was a challenge of face to face challenge was laid out on the major brothers podcast this week. But I don't think anybody heard the face to face challenge because in order to hear the face to face challenge. You would have had to sit through an hour and a half of Demet brothers trying to convince their listeners to send them figures in exchange for autographs eight by tens I swear to God. And I would never use the Lord's name in vain. But they literally started their show with forty five minutes of thanking listeners for sending them stuff. Like, don't don't. They're not even hiding it. You know, let let's not try to confuse what's going on if they're mentioning people by name on the podcasts where they're Instagram people or Twitter people or whatever it's because they cut him a deal on a figure traitor, whatever, you know, Zach riders asking for every figure that's ever come out. Because apparently he doesn't have any. He either got rid of them or you never bought him in the first place, and and they spent forty five minutes of their show. I guess they ran out of insults to say about me. So instead they had to fill the time by just either thanking people for sending them free stuff or trying to convince people to send them free stuff for leftover merchandise that shockingly didn't sell but the challenge. Was laid down you know, that that they would like to meet face to face. I would be more than happy. You know? I'm here. I'm in New York. My my local haunt is Caroline's on Broadway. I have a great relationship with those people and we've done lots of great live shows at Caroline's on Broadway..
