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
"royal rumble" Discussed on Busted Open
"All right. So let's look at the rest of the card outside the rumble. Obviously the title batch that Everyone's talking about the fevers Daniel Bryan we saw last night. A Bray Wyatt bleeding his own blood. You made me bleed my own blood Bray Wyatt Hi. It's signing the contract in blood it adding that extra sort of danger element and as you said mark to start to show adding an old school element to its fans will remember and kind of just very simple but very effective Pro Wrestling match itself. Really I mean listen. There's only really two schools of thought here right. It's the chase does Daniel Bryan's chase end in twenty four hours at Royal Rumble and then have a continuation into mania as then the fiend takes on a different role actually chasing Daniel Bryan or does chase continue into mania mark. Where were the fien stays champion and someone presumably Daniel Bryan will have to? They don't try a little bit harder and a few months bro. We we can sit here and flip the coin on whatever option I I'll rather see Daniel Bryan but I'd also like to see Randy Winn Rumble. And and we get we get Daniel Brand New York like I know it might not be the most It might not be the most climactic match but that just like my favorite wrestlers guys just because of the storytelling. I'm well I'm I'm still very old school in the sense that I wanna see the best story be told and we both know that both can wrestle. You know what I'm saying. And that's that's what I would like about it mark and I get very excited but the idea of a Randy Orton. Daniel Bryan match for me for someone who listened all due. Respect to Randy Orton. I think he is one of the best of his generation. But I also do think that Orton has found himself. The last few years different points kind of like what seen a was in like ten or eleven where it was very formulaic. In his match delivery I had seen that match before I had seen the move set before. He's so good that it's easy for him right. I I feel like Daniel Bryan would test him in ways and listen. I don't think we get a five star match. Necessarily out of those are well. That's the thing though. They have the capability and randy. Oh man the to see him tested in that way and as you said Mark I'd Tatum do I believe in I think there are fans out out there. Who Don't believe Randy Orton is capable of putting on a five star batch and has the same Roman reigns can do it examined race can get it done? It's just a matter of what the situation you put them in and I man I read without getting into it With you about what I think about. What the The common fan thinks about Roman reigns Shoot mark is not randy. Orton is not Roman reigns when it comes asked to Whether he'll be a good guy or bad guy he can do whatever the hell he wants to. He's the Viper Roman reigns is almost pigeonholed. Engine hold into being a baby face so you kind of know what you're GONNA get. Randy is a surprise and a point grey point to is two different different things. Well you just threw something. They're a curve ball little. Maybe now you're out there thinking nation right rainy or Daniel Bryan is that something I wanna WanNa see. Maybe not but now I'm thinking about and you know what maybe I do. Maybe from the reasons we just said. Let's test Randy Orton. Let's get him in there. Truly one of the best of a generation against what are the best generation Asian and Daniel Bryan and that would be a very unique story to be told and I can't say it would be particularly predictable right like mark. You pointed out. Maybe something would happen but I think it's one one of those things that would throw people for a swerve. So maybe that's something we should keep our eye on a mark knows this stuff. Mark knows aside and he's backstage you never know was not gonNa go away. I'm not I if if I thought are heard something. I'M NOT GONNA say it on the Air I'm not gonNA know. I might spoiler alert for bad boys. But I'm not gonNA spoiler order for us. Well that's good and I and someone who doesn't read the dirt sheets and really likes to remain as In the in the closet in the dark as you can and possibly imagine I'm definitely cut from that cloth. I I hate mark I truly do I I it just. It doesn't yeah. I don't even keep up with injuries that much because I like to be surprised. When the wrestlers come back I tried to watch pro wrestling through as much of a child's view as you possibly can so Yeah the from that standpoint. There's a a lot of exciting possibilities coming out of this weekend and obviously not just the rumble but the title matches. We're talking about the fiend and Brian. But there's two other great title matches every actually more more but For the for the to be specific to this conversation. We've got Oscar and Becky we've Got Bailey and Lacey. These are true. Great Women's title matches Mark. Which one are you more excited it for God man?.

"Lineup for our fans today. First of all mark and I get into Daniel Bryan and the feed. And that's I mean. That's understandable. Understandable is the main event of last night smackdown. It is also the title match heading into Sunday. Excitement is high would say I cannot wait to watch this match On Royal Rumble. Because the fiend signed the contract with blood. Guys there's a lot of terrifying it's terrifying. It's real it's well as Edmark says and you'll find out in this podcast. It's a bit of an old school approach to pro wrestling which we always love here on busted. Open speaking of things. Mark at has thoughts on Lacey Evans pro last night. Gaby first of all Everyone on this show loved it. The problem I think with Lacey Evans isn't so much lacy racy it's more piggly this continuing narrative of her heel character. Bailey a I should say gabby. I'M NOT BUYING IT I. I'm pretty sure you're not Buying and I guess we'll have to wait and marcus thinking. Yeah Yeah I mean Lacey Evans. Promo last night. I was almost in tears. It was emotional. She's a beautiful baby face. She's limitless as mark mark set but Bailey not buying so much we gotta see what's going to happen between these two. We gotTa Start Start Calling. Stop calling other limitless when we know damn well there's only one person who's limitless in the WWe universe and that is the one and only Keith lead from annex t he world rumble winner not really sure but we do know one thing annexed. He is on fire liar and as always here on Saturday. So we're going to give you guys our weekly winner Gabby you heard from mark. But I'm very curious. We'll do it right now. In this little podcasts preview. What was your weekly winner? From this week I weekly winner was the same as yours guys which was don Don Don an xt reasons as to why you guys both pick. That ought to listen right now here. I'M NOT GONNA get away call. That's what we call it. Tease at speaking of teases. You're going to get all of that in this next hour including a royal rumble full preview. Because well it's royal rumble weekend and that's what we do right here on busted open radio. Let's get it going. Brian Getting stabbed in the hand and inciting contract in blood bark. We were talking a little bit before the show. We both agreed. That was our favorite moment from smackdown last night. And what I really liked about and this is something you really hit on it. I think you're spot on it. It had that old school feel it had that I know it had. I don't WanNA use the word fun because obviously it wasn't fun for Daniel Bryan but it just feels like one of those moments and that's when I'll say this is what I really enjoy about seeing bunk on backstage he. He's very critical but he also has talked about at different points. It's how moments like this. You have to suspend disbelief and you have to Kinda almost. What would this be like if you were eleven years old again watching pro wrestling? This is what I feel like. Those seminal Oh moments mark that that fans will look back on for years to come and be I remember that was real that that's what it took my interest level up in even other notch for this Daniel Brian this fiend Showdown yeah I'm excited man. It's been a while since Those are old school match that the had like that old school type of field to it and I think that like the stabbing the hand. Yeah and sign on and blood is like nineteen eighty eight. I mean it was. It made you go. Why can't way to see how this is going to play out you know? And it's hard to get that feeling now. What also feels like something the fiend would do right? I mean we're talking about a psychopath and we're we're we've been talking about. I mean this started in the summer mark is has been a thing. This thing has been going on now for months and months and months. It feels like that was the next logical step like he's been a menace. He has been a terrifying force of nature right. He's withstanding dozen kirbs Thompson. He's become you know the champion and he's doing incredible things. There's no question right but that that that that horror story sort of I dunno side piece to it all the the next step up in serious next to the next level the blood and guts of it all. We need to kind of get there and I feel you'll like that was one of those moments where you like all right. You really paid attention to it and as you said it had that old school field but it but it was good to see that that danger level kicked up a notch. Yeah I wanted to see that I don't I don't want this to be I don't want the theme to become a normal occurrence. Hopefully elite at the way that this ends the fien kind of disappears Because I won't. I WanNa really really good saga but I want to see. I don't want it to be trivialized and I think that if you get too much of the fien We'll start to get bored with it and want to see him. I'm have typical normal matches and this strap match is not typical or normal There's so many things that could be done done. Because of the fact that they're linked together and is as for lack of a better term. Oh you WANNA get real will last night it got real. Yeah did obviously. We're talking about the blood on the contract but also the the whips from the strap like that was if you say that was real and it just I felt like it took this rivalry to another level. I mean on some in some instance right but I still don't. I still don't know no how Sunday is going to go. Mark because on one hand adding to the the calming thought is that the fiend is going to rain until until Wrestlemainia like. That's the moment where you would have. The fien be conquered the biggest stage Miami. Everyone's watching it's this continuation or this this this closing of the story that it is run for months and months and months on end but you know as well as I do. Mark is something's predictable. That's all the more reason for Vince and the WWe to throw us a little bit. Of A swerved served to throw us a little bit of a curve ball so I could also see on some of Daniel Bryan going out and being the foil that the fiend found sound right or the the the thing is that sort of attitude that sort of you know strap me down. There's nothing that you can do. I've taken it all. I've seen it all. I'm generational wrestler. I'm going to show you you were dangerous. I'm GONNA show you. What violence is? I'm going to take it from the BINGO halls. I'M GONNA take it from you know the American dragging I'm GonNa show you what pro wrestling can be. I just and that's what's exciting. I don't know where Sunday is going to go now. I actually think Ryan that you watch a horror movie and in a horror movie. There's no oh real affinity for the monster. You WanNa see the moss to do what chase you wanna Wanna see the monster hunt and as it gets wrestlemainia. Don't you think it would be better to see a monster hunting rather than and standing with the title. It just doesn't make sense so you know when you start saying okay. Let's break this down and make this a story that we can really think our teeth into Dan you. Brian has to win. And he's the guy at Wrestlemainia Nia that not only fain is honey but brock listeners hunting or whoever wins the royal rumble. or I mean me there. There's such a multitude of things that could happen With that happening and I think that that's what will happen. I think that Dan Brian will find a way a really sick and creative way of not allowing the team to. He's already said there's no mind games he said you match. I told you before you match crazy with crazy. And what does he done. He has went completely unorthodox in his delivery and he's attacking the theme. He's going after the fan. He's he wants to be in a strap match tied to the theme. Come on man like that's that's that's what was needed and that's where we're going to get. Well I as we're sitting here talking about the fiend and Daniel Bryan. I guess my question would be mark is that about. I don't know I think it was two weeks ago. rambler rabbit gave a a teaser in one of the packages that we're doing in the firefly funhouse house route like Daniel Daniel. The fiend does have a weakness. And I'm going to tell you about it and obviously rambling ramic gets done away with before he can get the the words out but I guess mark on life support right right but the teas there is that there is a weakness to the fiend. There is a way to beat the fiend. There is the secret out there. They're the only Bray Wyatt in the fiend and the people in the firefly funhouse. No we haven't figured out what that what that weakness is so common logic at least is to me. Mark would suggest that we kind of got to know what that weakness is before the fiend has conquered. You know what I'm saying like that's going to be the key to conquering the fien now. Maybe Daniel Bryan finds that out through the of course this match. That's entirely possible I just I don't know man I feel like I feel like defend is going to retain for that reason. I think we need to find out what that weaknesses I. I think. It's the element of surprise. You take away the fiend and Daniel Bryan. I think is figured it out. Like if you have the fien able to appear in disappear. That's an unbelievable weapon and it Kinda invokes votes A nervous feeling The Mind Games if you will To perform that he's facing Dan was gonna be tied to him. Six feet away. He can't disappear. He can't go nowhere and I think like with that now Daniel. There's there's no surprising Daniel whatever happens. The Daniel is going to happen to him if they jump off if they they climb and and Go Up to the top of the tron and jump off..
"royal rumble" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"Nineteen ninety-five holy cow. Did we get a lot of feedback feedback about this through it up on twitter and said Hey if you've got a question about the royal rumble. Ninety five ask it here and man we got blown up. People are fired up about this. They are good reason to be because it was one of the best rumbles of all time. Well nobody oh Bob. Hey you know what I again I think if anything holds up over time watching it back the story holds up. The it's all about story in the story held up. Well listen. I can't argue any of that. I do want to apologize last week. We had every intention of letting you guys ask some questions here. And that was our intention for Royal Rumble Nineteen Ninety. We got a little bit of a curve ball last week right in the middle. I love recording We learned the passing of Rocky Johnson. And say that that changed the tone and tenor of our show would be a massive massive understatement But we've got lots of questions about nineteen ninety so I thought before we got going into nineteen ninety-five circle back a little bit and let people pick your brain for nineteen eighteen ninety. What say you I say go for man? I'm ready by the way if you haven't already check it out in the archives Royal Rumble Nineteen Ninety such a fun join show. I mean so much made on the bone ear mayhem would write a comment on Rick Martel. Spray can't gimmick whose idea was it. What exactly was he spraying arrogance the lovely scent of arrogance capable? Well it was. It was a take off on you. Know in the fifties. He's Gorgeous George. The original Gorgeous George George Wagner had valet the king of the ring and before George getting into the ring the Valet would go round the ring with this autumn iser and he would spray perfume so that the ring smelled appropriate before George Enter and it was a take off on that and and instead of doing the the Oughta miser like George did thought of it would be better just more visual To do it's like the old yellow cells. Oh commercials of the pesticides and they would use that. That's what the used you would fill. Fill that up with pesticide and spray for roaches in Shit around your house back in the olden days and it was a just a little different presentation. Different approach evidence James Stewart had a variation of question that we got a lot Was Vince really over tanned from the Orlando beaches. And that's why Tony Honi did pay a play by play. Easy for me to say Shivani has said on the podcasts before that He was not supposed to do commentary on this show about convince arrived at the building. He said Hey Tuxedo and he said yes sir he said Okay Cool. You're on the call tonight. And he thinks that maybe that was because has the The beat had to kind to Vince. Let's say you say that we might as well get some use out of Tony. Steve Fraser writes. What's the giant book that I had this lamp? What are okay okay? y'All way too fucking and observe. I wasn't looking at the thing. He had a giant book in his lap. I have no idea Did this is from Eric. Did Butch Reed invent the royal rumble. No that's one thing that Bush did not not invent he invented the rumble. Royale completely different concept. A lot of people get confused about that so I I'm sorry okay but not the royal rumble. It was the rumble. Royale lots of variations of this question to from joss weekly. He rides and some years to the wrestlers not have their the theme music at some years. They did it was experimental and it was. It was something later on when we did the music for everybody. I think that that added to it because instantly. Even if you didn't see them you reacted and early on. You had to wait until until early cleared until Ed the entire Rena Psalm. And we didn't have the big tron stages at that time so I think that adding the music as time time went on really helped lots of variations of this. You know we understand Hashtag Hogan must pose but given where we were headed would it have made sense in hindsight for the ultimate warrior to have won the match. Here fuck no well okay. Because again warriors going to go over Wrestlemainia six in Toronto Rondo and this kind of a swansong for at the time I think that shelvin him down their throat too much a time with where we were in the bill of the lawyer. I don't think it would've made sense. Tony Parker writes in. Wow was the Tito Santana slash rick. Martel few never settled OUGHTA major pay-per-view great question mile away. Well it's not everything settled on pay per view that was set in live events it's in arenas across the country main event anywhere in the world. Foss bucket writes in. When was the decision made have Debussy Interests Number One and was it a callback to eighty nine when he bought the number thirty is fine? Well it was because it was what's worse spot that you can have in. That was number one one so going from playing off last year yes. That's exactly what it was. An Teddy was someone that we felt could also last a while and you think Oh my God. He's he's GonNa last this thing then bump dump him on his ass. Lots of questions about recruit coming out prematurely. It comes out on. There's like ten seconds left intentional steak. Anybody notice or care well again. Notice geared is probably a timeline gene issue. And somebody just send him maybe me I don't know let me just say mark from Tampa really gets Andre. Never had insurance music music. Hypothetically if he did what should have sounded like I forget my Andre Shit and Andre Agassi baugh through pooh-pooh else terrible. I was terrible. I you know I forget my old shit. Sometimes and we've seen smack now. Drew Smith writes. Can you explain the purpose of Hogan and warrior going Criss Cross on the ropes. What does this actually do? It's been borrow fathering me for thirty years. Literally every fifth question is about the fucking crisscross. Damn it's it's it's a move. You're trying to gain the advantage in your opponent. You're trying to catch him for a tackle trying to catch it. Just be a step off. It's like a challenge. Okay you hit the ropes and hit the robes. And let's see you know waiting for somebody to make that first move. dropdown tackle get it again. Boom grab a headlock. Let's go simple shit man. Why does that bother you? Ask that question lots of people. Okay lots lots of people. Why does that bother you? Joy It. It's action action running the ropes action. It is actually Jonathan Atta wants to do you recall your job duties for this show in particular. And what did those duties entail. Foresee means besides being on camera God that show I probably. SHES worried about my own camera. Stuff at that point. Yeah I was running guerrilla on sending guys at this point probably. Jj Dylan what would. What would bruce numbers but vince have been doing during the show? Where would he scituate? Then it's probably would have been all over the place just gotTa make sure they're everything was lined up and everywhere else. It was a lot different than first of all. You didn't have all of the Rif communication where you can have. Everybody can have a headset water. All over the building to be in contact. You know we didn't have that it was if you needed to communicate with someone you had to go find him and talk to him face to face. We had radios but Shit Shit. Give the whole wrestler agents and they get lost within the first two weeks and cost so it. It's you've gotta run around and actually do the word versus having ten million assistance and different people. Doing running for you. Mark from Tampa is really on his shit. He's breaking down the film here. It's the fucking JFK video and he spots after Hogan Eliminates Hukou at two hours. Forty one minutes and thirty four seconds. What he believes is to be a w official sitting ringside giving the Hugh for Tito to be eliminated? How're eliminations done was there a guy sitting ringside? We've heard before or that you know they would look to the ring announcer and if he was waving his tire had a pencil. Mark you would be incorrect. So what was the hugh here. Wasn't oh cute guys. Do the match knew when they went out. There's no way down. They're giving them cues. No we have lots of questions nations about this. I know what you're GONNA say. I feel like I don't ask I'm going to get hit with more questions about it. Can we please talk about the yellow. Intercontinental Bell appeared rod around and this time it was only used until wrestlemania six while the color changes for the belts for warrior only and whatever happened to the yellow AC- after Wrestlemainia. Six color changes were for warrior. Because he was colorful character and we just wanted change it up a little bit. I think we had purple and yellow and just some different colors. I don't think that any of them other than the yellow actually got out. We had the purple WWF championship for Warrior Time. But the idea was to do some some different colors for him because he was a color of character and what became of it is or your held his private collection and eventually sold. I think it's a private collector in Boston. But worry before he passed away would try to sell other belts as the actual yellow intercontinental. Just rip off. Fans pretends thousands of dollars. Put the real one. I believe to be somewhere in the Boston area. lots of interesting questions About some guys that we've already talked about Ad Nauseam You can catch most of these answers in in the archives without further ado. Let's get to the topic at hand today. Royal Rumble Nine Thousand Nine hundred ninety five and we're covering him and just a couple of days after the twenty five year anniversary went down at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa Florida on January twenty second. I can't believe this is real but We drew ten thousand fans less than royal rumble. Ninety four which was fourteen thousand five hundred but more than what you draw in. Nineteen Ninety six with ninety six hundred ten thousand fans attending royal rumble. We're a long way from that. Now are we not. Yeah Bosch it three or four times. Easily it's unbelievable how much the business has grown since but here it feels like man. We are at the bottom of the barrel with Nineteen ninety-five i. This is the first time you've seen this on a long Tom. But you know..

"royal rumble" Discussed on The Jim Ross Report
"Both bland like hogs. They beat the shit out of each other with inanimate objects that you can't work irk with very well. They hurt each other. The push the limits. What else could they leave out? What would they have added? I I gotTA. Let's say nothing so they were given full rein creativity and that's good. That's why I believe. This is why this Debbie brand because we don't have riders leaders in the towns are obligated to come up the law their own stuff. You Jerk. Oh wait so somebody give him the marching orders. What he's going to do with Jon Moxley or vice versa? With moxy Jerko. No that's them being able to be creative and live that created dream so to speak because they you know what they could do better than anybody else and do it. Well so no I think Nobody said anything about that. Conrad because we trusted Mick not to go crazy and that may have been a mistake quite frankly because the mic always took it to the very edge man and the Causey love what he was doing as so much and sometimes talk again could be the blessed or it could be a curse. The original creative for Wrestlemainia. You know with with Austin been involved would have been different. What would he have done at Royal? Rumble if you think he was He was a Gamer here. He was available. WHO's that NAB? So if Austin was in this royal raw God mind how would the show of indifferently think. Well he would have been probably WANNA rumble. Yeah you can't bring a guide back from catastrophic injury and not have success at their face for sure and that that would have stopped the rocks growth. Yep Stop maybe the too strong it will slow down for sure. Yeah absolutely so. But you don't bring you don't bring Mickey Mantle back until lineup him not hit fourth. He's a cleanup hitter. That's Austin so but because she didn't have him you had another guy that pretty good power clear the basis and do his thing about in fourth in the lineup. And that's the great one so we were very lucky we have both. Those guys is there and I think it's stellar moments in talent relations that you know. Can you imagine not having anybody ready or not. Having talents recruited signed line trained and in place in case somebody went down. What if we had not had the rock? What if a series as a major your question and one on very happy that we don't have to answer well lots of what ifs about next week show and as much as I enjoyed royal rumble? Two thousand I think kind joy the the garnish around royal rumble. Two thousand five even better. That's what we're doing next week right here and went down on January thirtieth two thousand some five. So we're right at the fifteen year anniversary and next week we'll be back at you on the exact fifteen year anniversary of that show from Fresno California. You may remember this is is the royal rumble where we had all of the WB superstars do a little commercial as if it was west side story which is just tremendous. This is also the show where we would edged Shawn Michaels in a singles match unbelievably the undertaker's wrestling Heidenreich here in a casket match triple threat with JBL. Big Show and Kurt Angle for the debut title. Triple H and Randy Orton for the world heavyweight championship but the main event is all about thirty man royal rumble match and and things.

"Xm App we have twenty two entrance into the rumble right now. So far. We got listener Dr at one. We have rollins Owens Joe Rains. Corbin's Ziegler Nakimora Stroman Rowen. Aj Styles or Elias Ramos. therio ricochet drew McIntyre Otis Talker Rousseff Lashley and then somehow they're going to eliminate themselves Alastair Alastair Black Buddy Murphy. I mean that's twenty twenty two entrance for the rumble doesn't leave a lot of room for surprises. This is and by the way bully like we always talk about like. We can't call and exceeded developmental brand anymore. Annex T is on par with raw raw smackdown. Are they I mean as of right. Now there's twenty two entrance to rumble. Not One of them are from annexed. Say so I don't buy into that. Annexed is on on par with raw or smackdown went to me the second biggest pay per view of the year the Royal Rumble. There is no annex t presence at all at this royal rumble. I don't think the guy should be surprises. But they have worked in the past that surprises. Remember when Adam Cole surprise yeah that kind of worked but again that's that's when was perceived as a developmental brand to are you. Do you really perceive it as something different when they have no entrance in the royal rumble. So far and there's twenty wanting to entrance out of thirty. Maybe maybe this Wednesday night somebody will get announced. Maybe they're saving the announcement for Wednesday. Maybe I mean would not make logical. Oh sense well here we are. We're at twenty to thirty right now. We that gives us plenty of room for a couple of next guys. Maybe a returning veteran and a couple of really cool surprises. I guess I mean we're probably GONNA get more wrestlers announce that smackdown for the rumble. Two I don't know if it's GONNA leave us a lot of vacancies for this year's royal rumble. Think about this. We have twenty two entrance for the Ben's royal rumble. As of right now we have four for the women. The women ever you know are going to have thirty entrance just like the men and as of right now we're less than a week away from the rumble. They've announced four entrants funds for the women's Royal Rumble. Pretty I'm sure you'll see everybody on the raw and smackdown roster for the women maybe an annex t woman or so so maybe Maybe e o Shirai maybe I mean and and would that mean that. She's still going to be a part of Annex T or they moving her and you know what I'm GonNa say it and I don't give a shit if people get angry does that mean they're going to move. EEOC ride to the main roster because raw and smackdown is the main roster annexed is is not the main roster. It's not it's not. You got twenty two entrants in a rumble. Not One one wrestler from annexed. And there's the annex t worlds collide pay Per v I mean worlds collide on pay per view the takeover. That's going to happen This weekend it's the same. It's the same formula that we saw from exte- exte- more and more as we we go through this whole thing putting annex t on USA was just a offense of move by the the WWe defensive offense whatever you WANNA call it against the e w the extent is not part of the main roster. It's it's not now when you have the royal rumble and there's no annex t presence and they still have a takeover that weekend it's not a main roster program. I'm sorry I love Venzke. I love St more than raw and smackdown it's in the eyes of the wwe. I'm sorry it's it's not part of main roster. Am I wrong year. When you talk about the perception of the main roster I understand your point of view because we all because for years the main roster it has been raw and smackdown? Yes I get it. So it's GonNa take a while for people to be on board with calling annex t the main roster despite the fact that guys like me and you enjoy Wednesday nights and exceed more than raw or smackdown. Most of the time. Do you really let me ask you I. Will you be happy tomorrow night if you get one or two dice from announcing that they're entering the rumble. Yeah and or the era or maybe even an exte- match on the Royal Rumble. Show why do you need that. Well I mean because what you're getting this weekend is the world's collide. It's a combination of annexed annex. T U K. I mean why not have some matches for if you're part of the main roster. Why not have some annex t matches on on the royal rumble pay per view? What match do you WanNa see on the royal role of pay per view? How about how about a match for the next championship because as of right now that's not on on? That's not a part of a world collide so maybe have an annex t match up for the championship on on the Royal Rumble show. Don't you think that this went should happen on Thursday and not today because they might make up for it tomorrow and you know what if what bully and if they do then you know what then this is thrown out the window. I'm just reacting to the fact as of right now there's twenty two entrance to the royal rumble and not one of them are from annexed. T- let me issue this truly from annex t who do you want to see in the rumble. Because I only WANNA see one guy who keithly.

"Was removed from power after losing a five on five survivor series. Elimination match. Seen as the only person who can bring them back. TLC CENA would face rollins and a tables match Where he would win and retain his number one contender status and later in the event wasn't it was an ask that CENA would face brock listener for the world title at Royal Rumble on the final episode of Raw in two thousand? Fourteen rollins would attack Ed's which we've talked about and of course He acquiesces so the Authority is back and on January fifth rollins gets added to the triple a threat match as a reward from triple h helping bring the authority back Let's fast forward here. It's a three way dance. It's twenty two minutes. It's it's forty two seconds. It's a really good match as much as good as a of a three way. I think you'll see. I think this is a mass that probably flies under the radar. If there's one match on this car that I'm GonNA recommend you go see this. One method would agree. He gives a four and three quarter stars. Rock listener retains Quite the performance leshner here. meltzer would remark is enormous and he says the crowd was totally in the listener. It came out German soup flexing heated the two German suplexes on Sina and he did a double back suplex on Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury. There's lots of creative action here They're going to get to the outside. Spanish announce tables monitors are pulling out all the stops. Would you think of this when you watched it this week. for for the first time on TV probably ever. What did you think what an effort? What a collaboration Let me just say that. I'm not a big fan and people that know me know this. I'm not a big fan of prostituting. Your finish because throughout history. What made this business make sense? And what made it relatively took say easy but more manageable when you're trying to tell the story of a match it's real simple. This is my finish. I'm going to do everything thing I can possibly do to get my finish on you because when I do matches over and my opponent is going to do the exact same thing and and if they hit me with their finish matches over. So I've never been a big fan of prostituting your finish just for a hotshot deal but if if it ever fit in a match this would be the one that it made some sense because number one lessner is a monster stirred not was not could be in the future. He is a monster and everyone understands that and the way they structured this match coach. Those guys I would have hated woke up in any of their bodies probably including listeners because the aggression the violence the high spots. Would Seth coming off the top and putting a breakthrough that table. I mean everything was just at a heightened level level and the audience being in Philly which is a rough blue collar town they love violence and they love love it in large quantities and boarded they get boarded. They get it. You know that particular night so if you're waiting on something negative negative become out of my mouth is not going to happen. Those guys put on A. I don't know how many stars whatever the maximum would be but added another couple all and that's what they had that particular night gaudy way to watch it. It is a Below the radar three way because it's in the modern era. I don't think it gets maybe the credit it deserves deserves twenty years from now people talking about this like a barn burner. Be Ahead of the curve. Go check it out. I think you'll be glad you did We should mention rollins. Going for the curbstone. Curbstone listener gets up ducks cases him with the F.. Five and MELTZER would describe it in three words absolutely fantastic match when it came time Tom for the readers of the wrestling observer to vote in the poll it was unanimous one hundred percent of the votes for the best match. Poll was this so this is something you don't WanNa miss especially if you haven't seen it before I go out of your way to check it out and you know what while you're at it go out of your way.

"But before we do stock about the bill on our way here on January fifth episode of Raw we would cease Azzaro enticing kit attack Kofi Kingston Savior Woods which let Adam Rose News Defeat biggie and then on January nineteenth episode we would see Biggie and Kofi defeats Azzaro and Tyson Kidd and later in the night and it was announced that new day they would face his ro Kia and Adam rose six man elimination match on the Royal Rumble. Kickoff show on January twenty fifth. It's changed to tag team. Match with Sirocco and kid accompanied by rose to he on Biggie and Kingston with roads now being unable or woods rather being unable to compete compete so our first mash on the show stuyvesant kid and says ro getting a win over Kofi Kingston and the new day. They go ten minutes fifty five off seconds. MELTZER gives a two and three quarter stars. There's a lot to unpack here. This is before. We're roughly a year into the new day Ronn but we're still not quite as big as the new day is going to be. We know they've still got greater heights to climb to. Unfortunately we're not that far away from Tyson kids entering career coming to an end after a horrible accident mashed Joe and that would be the end of his in ring career and of course Kozara talked about a little bit here on the show. Not One of the unsung heroes of that roster and certainly Internet darling before he. He joined the company but the other member of the club. Here is something we haven't talked about. And that's Adam rose and the Rosebud Buds Act this comes to us from Annex T. It feels like it's going to be a triple h project In winds up including a lot of people we would say even Sammy. Amy Gora for me W. as one of the Rosebud. I think once upon a time becky Lynch was Braun strowman was It was almost a WHO's who at different times uh-huh whoever's in developmental or whoever's in that town that day an interesting gimmick maybe maybe not the best gimmick But Adam rose I had a few gimmicks before he was sort of shown the door and I will hear much about him anymore these days what can you tell about Adam. Rose and the rose buds before we get to their. Let me just double back. Because we haven't talked about this for just a second. I just WanNa say what. What an incredible tag-team sorrow and TJ? Were absolutely I got to see them in those live events and and I got to sit down with them and see them you know putting their team works stuff together you know and compare notes and doing all this stuff and going out and tearing it up. The Dow was one of the bigger tragedies of this company experienced cost. TJ As incredible incredible talent. Incredible Person He's a smart guy. He's a good friend. He's a good employee. He's all those good things and natty will tell you. He's a great husband husband and I think we had horrible loss. The probably didn't get the airtime it should have as far as what we had lost And just a show a little more appreciation for that talented guy and him and says are were great team And as WANNA make sure everybody understands you know what could have been anyway moving forward to Adam rose and his crew. I think the idea for entity you know was great. I think now we're at you know and this is prior to I think. NHTSA going on the road and having all the house shows that they have weren't they just doing tv at this time mostly. I'm not sure if they were working the quote unquote coconut loop. CBS They do these days. I'm not sure well that would have been drives if it was it would have been you know and I'm look I'm porn. I'm trying to make as you want it to look like television. Which means you're going to need? Twelve fifteen rose buds. Every so. So we're always cutting costs. We're always saying we need to save money. You know you're cutting regular talent off of the roster who are losing their jobs but you're GONNA make sure you've got fifteen rose buds at probably three to five hundred bucks. I would just just estimate this three to five hundred dollars per person to be at television to be without them who I got nothing but time for Adam rose. He was nothing but a gentleman gentleman. Good worker grim Khloe. Nope no problem without him. But why would you invest that kind of money. And a gimmick that was going to be in the first match her and then you have the the issue of okay. How do I get those same fifteen people to the house? Show without paying for plane tickets or rent a cars her hotel rooms and all that mess. Doing that. Math with me as we're talking here Conrad that's could could be a little expensive so tells me about idea. Well then you strip him down he doesn't have the Rosebud you just got. Adam rose there in the live event sporty forty felucca screwed so it was like a no win situation. Either way you went if you just had underneath in your mind that you were going to use him. If you're sitting there you're writing shows down and you go. Let's never going to be anything but first match but it's you know it's it's a way. Let the audience up and just have some fun and dotted out about. Oh what about the expense. You've you've always heard Vincent in Lake Tag Teams Wa. Because he didn't like the Double Trans Right. How's IT GONNA light put ten Rosebud or twelve or fifteen Rosebud ads? where the plane ticket and their hand probably not going to get over so well? That's the big draw about you know drawback that I assault with it talked about the match. there's lots of interesting tag team move here If for whatever reason you weren't watching wrestling during the Sarah I'm going to cosign on what orange said. The toxin kids are team man. What could have been because they were committed to working a lot of double team and and collaborative moves chiefs together and the result is some really cool stuff? You've probably never seen before The finish comes when we see I think we've mentioned Tyson. Kids are the win but says ro nails Kingston from the outside of the ring with a forearm uppercut and kid. I WANNA get a pin after the spinning fisherman buster and they're pushing as a result of this win Akins as Ara are now in line for a title match so this this is a great way to start the show. Obviously we know that The new day are going to go on to great heights but it is an interesting what could have been look at Tyson. Kids pins are all we know this is all really hit. His stride and tag-team shame us but I would even argue that it was a more fun pairing him and Tyson Kidd. It would have been more exciting because Tyson's whole style was totally different from you. Know shameless was a bruiser that that's what he is. He's he's a steamroller Tyson. Talking about the flip flop and fly of today talking about an acrobatic athletic fun to watch performer. That's Am and and they integrated some of that strongman stuff that says Aro does you. You know they'll be scratching their head how he pulls us off one hundred years from now but it was just an incredible bland and they just and I know the new day A and I know their attitudes and they would have done everything. Humanly possible to have catered to all those assets that the other team had and made data great match because that's who they are as well so it was just a good booking was good booking. Now let's keep it going. Let's talk about the next x match on the way here. Though the number twenty ninth episode of Raw we would see the ascension come up from an x t and make their W W debut and over the next a few weeks. They're getting an easy win. Over enhancement performers in different markets and a lot of people are drawing comparisons to the road warriors. Based on the. Look in that it's black and red face paint and crazy hair and then on the January nineteenth episode of raw the ascension is confronted and attacked by the end of Yo the APA and the new age outlaws after the ascension sort of broke up the interview reunion segment. which you can hear about on yesterday's Eric? Eric Bischoff eighty three weeks podcasts. Anyway later in the night S. announced the ascension is going to face the new age outlaws. And this is going to happen at the Royal Rumble This feels like a fever. Dream the new age outlaws are a longtime removed from being an active competition But now they're back up and running here in this era and they're going to be taking on the ascension here the ascension get the win and five minutes and twenty seconds. MELTZER would say road. Dog Did a great job on the Mike before the match there was even a you still got a Chan- nothing much to the match To do the gimmick the essential does like the Road Warriors Gimmick. You need need big powerhouses. The problem is the outlaws particularly billy. Gunn are deceptively tall so the ascension though physically stand out anyway they were kind of killed all the TV and then gun missed the famous fear. Connor snapped his neck on the top rope and the ascension do their fall of man ongoing not much eat for the match but the crowd did like the the Nostalgia Act of the outlaws star and a quarter. A man there's The old cliche ashamed talking to them into the seats. When road came out with a Mike and his hand he was talking them out of their seats? They were on their feet. They love this entrance. Backup posit right there and I will agree with you. Yes they did Dog got a great job with that. And you're talking about Audience Participation. That was. There's if you look at that and the dictionary there's a picture of those guys But you back up. Didn't own this build. When they're in all the essential were getting some enhancement? Wins over teams and stuff. Didn't own their PROMOS. They mentioned mentioned the road warriors. There wasn't you're just go down with a couple of flaming arrows and just shoot them in heart. Right there goes their dad. Why would you be talking about an iconic team that you had no chance of there being a rebuttal Roll from your shooting an angle with iconic guys from the past that were special and will be remembered forever road warriors? No matter what you think doc have some kid today. Say who was the call coolest tag team there ever was and they're going to probably say road warriors right.

Alex accents saints row. Wait is this John John Joe. It's Jay I was close enough John and North Carolina did you think of the power rankings this week a lot. Better other than what I have been hearing from The other person so I think we're good man. I mean it's just the other person. Oh Wow that's it. Did you have a question. I John I did I actually got a question is could you ever see the fien affecting another character after leaving. Bray Wyatt like incomplete. And if so who would that other character and I really think that'd be interesting storyline in going after the Kind of recreated and we're actually just kill that character all altogether. What do you think I don't know I don't think I wanna see the scene killed offer or bray white and killed off? I liked what they're there when I get a little confused sometimes mark.

There's no wrong that's being done. I as I I don't get it. This is about maybe the second or third time that somebody had said that they weren't into the scene That they thought it was. You know to movie likes to television like television down payment admit to be entertaining. I don't get it Daniel out in Rockford Illinois what did you think about the power rankings. This week brother. Oh I thought they were pretty good just pretty pretty good Now I think They were a definite upgraded from before Lot more credible. I guess you could say my my trying to you is did you get a chance to watch. NFL AWS Magnani Rod. As we I watch eighty he w I watch I used to watch Ron smackdown but it just I just lost lost Attention or I guess why why why I just always get frustrated with certain characters like ruined too and and I always expect more I guess if they are I would think things are gonNA happen and Sunday. We're having where you just want to see him as much or you'll see them start Losing more than I know I always wonder started happening. More and more artists got aws to mouth table to. It's hard to be able to say what you thought was good if you didn't watch so let's if you call it in. I hope you watch because you know we'll ask you the question. John Out New York. What did you think about the power rankings? This week I think he did a fantastic job. I probably put drew at number one. I think that was a hell of a win. And the triple threat I'm a big drew fan. actually Book in the Royal Rumble. I'd love to see now. We have Brockett number one. I mean what if like you know tonight on Raw Orton goes up to brock's face and says yeah you know Oh you think you're such a tough guy being number one in the rumble. You know. Why don't you put that title on the line? Then you could see if we brought really has balls and then you know maybe orden could eliminate listener in the rumble and you set up a match without the title right there and I'd love to see Goldberg. Come in at number two. Because there's there's a history between Lesbian Goldberg that the also to see thanks John Mark Goldberg and Brock facing off again Goldberg as a surprise prized. Entrant you digging it. I don't know about second. I mean if you had Goldberg come in Around like eleven in Fourteen somewhere in there and get caught up in the mix then. Yeah but who's ever the first guy in the ring that starts arts and the the third person that comes to the ring man though those spots are going to be real important. They're going to be very important. I'll tell you what mark I was fortunate enough in the two thousand fifteen royal rumble to be the first surprise. So the first guys in the ring were Ron the truth killings things and the MS and I was the first countdown and like that outside of the box surprised and I love that spot because the people there are just so ready for that first. I countdown man. Came out there and it was. It was an incredible reaction. So if you're in the right spot for that surprise is I would eat. I want to be the first surprise where I want to be the last surprise in the royal rumble. I think I want to be the first surprise right and and and I'm not shocked that I would want to be the first surprise because I love going on I. I'm not a guy that needs to be on last. I'm just a guy that needs needs to be talked about when you're going home and mark you've stole so many shows on your own then. I think you know what I'm talking about if you don't know Sirius.

Things you wanted to give an honorable mention to somebody so the floor is yours. My friend why I I'll say happy birthday happy. Belated birthday yesterday. They was birthday are truth. Should be an honorable mention for what he did with brock listener. Monday head Brag. Lessen the walking all over the ring laughing his ass. He just couldn't at one point. He had to lean against the ropes. Paul Heyman was like wh what are you talking about and truth is my dad. Like he was so good he popped me like two or three different times. I laughed and when when you start talking about reactionary things that you do in the ring. Nothing exemplifies pro wrestling like that segment with truth Heyman and Brock so honorable mention goes out to archer now mark. Let's pull back the curtain a little bit okay. Because obviously the business of that segment was to entertain on TV but you know damn well back stage. The business of that segment was wants to get brought to crack. Yes you know and from what. I'm understanding Brogden. Even know that that was going to happen no way yeah. It was completely K.. Paid that's what I'm getting. And that made me like Reli- reliable sources reliable sources I because if that how great is that it's really not somebody else is. Yelling is area you you like with the thing with him and brock. It wasn't really a real boom brock. It it was it was it was designed for Brock not to me mentally prepared to block it and it worked because I never seen Rog. Laugh that much. Since I've known him he was laughing. His ass off it was beautiful and it babyfaced feeling about Brag that I never got in the ring I get it in the bag because you know we go into you know. He got his private addressing room with a little private catering. And I still all snacks. But in the rain he's all about business ernest. And y'all got the C.. Brock Listener. Go back and look at Monday night raw. You get to see Brag Lesnie in a place that you never ever ever seen it. It was beautiful Mark Archer there about three people allowed in Brock's dressing room and I think me and you a two out of the three three. I'm sure that if Brock saw truth before they out there I almost positive brock said truth. Don't you dare don't don't you try to do it. Listen here I said last week and backed me up on this or feel free to shoot me down. Brock respects a guy like truth because truth been around forever and truth was around when Brock at first started so brock looks at truth as a veteran of the business. So he's not going it'll be mad at him or look down upon him for trying to get him to laugh while they're out there especially when brock knows what the end of the segment is going to be he he he he knows at the end of the segment is GonNa be and I mean I'm I'm pretty sure that it was brought. It was given to him as he was in ring. Because I don't think that he knew when troops music hit and came out he didn't even know truth is coming out like it was it was just to that degree. Wait a minute timeout timeout. You just you just shocked me when you told me that what we said in the ring was shot. What would brock didn't know? But now you're telling me that Brockton and even know that truth was coming out. I thank this is purely Hayman in in truth. That's hysterical this that Yon to listen when I heard it. I was like right now and I was like the more that I saw.

"No this is is not bully. Ray this is the producer of the show. Alex mets and I am here with. WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry and mark and bully ray hosted the show today What we're going to hear on the podcast is a lot of discussion about the royal rumble? This week it is rumble week. And you guys talk about some shockers some surprises. There's some predictions for who could potentially get into the mix and the royal rumble and try to slay the beast brock listener. WHO's coming in at number one? Where you definitely have so many options from Bobby Lashley to keep Lee who I really think the? WWE will miss the boat if they don't create an unbelievable believable moment. There's so many things that's going on. That would surprises in people that you got to the podcast. Speaking of rock listener. You guys with kind of a surprising statement. Not Something we planned. We talked a little bit about Or Truth on the PODCAST. Today he was one of your honorable mentions for the power rankings through the listeners will also here today are truth and Brock. Maybe this was a little more off the cuff on raw this past week than we may have thought I think not only was it off the cuff. I think that it might have been even a secret. Even to brock at the Braga handled it in a way that a seasoned veteran would handle blitz. And you get to hear US talk about what went on As I mentioned the pro wrestling power rankings. This Week David Greco gotten a lot of trouble trouble last week for his power rankings Being that he is not here today. You win bully. Ray took the reins and I think the fans were really happy. If what you guys came up with bless his heart we had to go in and do our best We as both said we did a legitimate serious serious lists and personal feelings involved in personal feelings involved and there were people that got left tall but it was really really tight and like I say we even had honorable mentions. But you know didn't make I think a really good edition of the pro wrestling power rankings this week and finally smackdown announcer corey graves has been making waves in recent weeks with his new podcast. Asked This past week. He talked about Monday night raw specifically what he doesn't like about the show having to do with them. Maybe trying trying to recreate the magic of the attitude era with this. Lana Lashley Rue seven. Live Morgan's segments so mark you guys get into it and in court comment specifically on why he thinks they should maybe be going in a different direction. Creatively on Monday night raw yet. Core grazes dimply one. We we should make sure that you listen to. Because he makes the point that is not always what I look at it as VM Palatable Communists. And we'll talk about that on the pocket all of that right now bully ray and Mark Henry to wwe be hall of famers on the same podcast. That's right it's the busted. Open podcast coming up right now. Do you think conor McGregor could be a successful in the wwe. And do you think that there's any chance in hell. He's a surprise entrant in the rumble as a businessman. I do think that that he could and I will not let my personal feelings for him affect business. That's just the way I've been taught in his his business Do I think that he will be an entrant in about a raw no Too much ego he would WANNA win. I just know him I just feel that he would want to win. And that will be more important to him. Then coming in and making a splash and everybody the ring stopping turn to him and walking slowly toward him and then just rushing him throwing him out which would be just as good as winning in pro wrestling but he's stupid I think to realize what doing good businesses But anyway I digress and speaking of good business while you were just talking made me think of this the big show and Floyd Mayweather. They didn't do good business. The stated phenomenal business together. Would you agrees they say and go ahead. Make your point so not appoint a question. You get a phone phone call from Vince tomorrow. and Vince. Says you're the perfect die for an angle with Conor McGregor mark. Henry you doing it or not I am. I'm doing it. You can do business with them. Yes am only gone. Slap him once. I would only slap your own. Oh I'm sorry just one shot going to slip. I want shot pinch to show you when you're in church and you act and you might grabs a hold of that skin under your arm goes. Oh Stop Up. Mom giving one of those benches. It's like that little that little meaty spot on the back tricep. No matter how hard you work you can't get muscle in that area. Just the little meetings on dreamer it just flaps in the wing the bottom of trekkies the dreamer ravens on his when dreamer raises his arm his triceps drops like six inches of Turkey neck. Swinging in the wing. All right we were talking about the royal rumble. We got the rumble coming up in a week lots of speculations regulate about. Who's going to be in it? Obviously we know a lot of the main roster guys are GonNa be on it we have. We have names. Here's here's what we have. So far mark we got less Kamov lessner rains Corbin Ziglar Nakimora Stroman Rowen. Aj Styles Orton. Elias Mistero Ricochet drew McIntyre my favorite guiding the whole WWe Otis Tucker Roussev Lashley Alison alliston black and Buddy Murphy. That's I believe. Nineteen out of the thirty entrance into the men's battle. Royal Royal Royal Rumble Mark. Do you think we should have any surprise entrance. This year like the feel-good entrance in two thousand fifteen I was a feel-good oh good entrance into the royal rumble. In philly I lasted about five minutes. Then ask thrown out by do you think the wwe should utilize those spots for current talent. Maybe annex t talent or do we bring in a legend for that spot. Just for the feel you'll get pop. I you know my personal opinion is I love the old guys on. I'm one of them But I really do think that the way businesses is evolving that they should use the annex. T guys there over people know who they are and they want to listen. I I said last week It will be great to see Keith. Lee Come in our Adam Cole. Come in and and some of the old issues that they've had fin ballor like like. Let the guys come back in and have them you know. Pick up where they left off the angles that they had but at some point brock brock should be land people out and as soon as you know the cameras on blogs phase you see keithly rise up behind him like he does on INEX- tea and brock turns around and face to face with Keith. Lee Oh you get the Rommel's camel's you'll get it and and and you create these moments in that bout a role as a relates to. What would make exciting? TV for everybody. Body and I I would hope that. That's what they do rather than just bring it and you know what if you bring in surprise guy great great. I'm all for but I. I Still WanNa see more guys me and you are on the exact same page when it comes to keithly deeply last week with me and Greco talking. I said that they should utilize the royal rumble to get keithly over. And I you said you have that moment. When keithly and brock listener are face to face but was you just did was? You made that spot even better because Keith Asli has been doing that kind of Hannibal Lecter. Moment where he's been popping up behind people that horror movie effect where Oh my God. The killer is rising so could you imagine if brock listener was just standing there. And as you said as we've seen keithly doing on TV in the past couple of weeks wrong is up. I'm getting goosebumps. I do because I can see the camera shot. You could just see it and imagine the look on Brock's rock's face when he can just feel Keith leaving behind him and then turn it around slow and Brock and Keith flee locking eyes and the look on Hayman's face knows Heyman knows that there are not many people who can stand nere across from Brock Leser but here comes young up and comer Keith Lee who can trade punches kicks and just about anything else with brock. And that's tell you make a star right Mar Martin how you make them in advance in the business of making people I I know that you know he. He will eventually get get there but I just think that sometimes you know the best way to do is listen to bust it open and take somebody see. That is because I don't see a lot of the stuff that mean you talk about when we're on when we put the hand the peon our hand. We give each other goosebumps just talking. Imagine if we actually see our work come to fruition. I I'm I'm not applying for a job. I'm not asking for job. I'm just saying us what we come on now market. There's guys that are listening to us. They listened bars yes they do. They're a couple of wrestling companies. Who who I know for a fact? Listen to this show who have used exactly what we've talked about the TV show. I've seen it happen sometimes. We're joking after Monday night raw or even last week after e w that they have to listen to the show. Oh and and listen. I have no problem with that. Good use the angles used the stories. It works for everybody. People are entertained but man. You're right we're we're not politiken taken for creative but boy do we come up with some interesting scenarios and I love it like when I don't think for one second that I don't listen.

"royal rumble" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"Richard. Bruce what's going on man. How are you? I'm excited. I'm cited. How the hell are you? I'm excited to and I know why you're excited. This is a show that you and I have been looking forward Ford to for a long time. It's rare that you and I actually agree on something but that's actually going to happen today. Our subject today royal rumble. Nineteen nineteen ninety one of our very favorite shows for different reasons man. This was when I'm at the peak of fandom as a kid a mate years old watching housing this and it is the greatest thing I've ever seen in your front and center on the show both behind the scenes and in front of the camera royal rumble. Nineteen Ninety with special and I can't encourage all of our listeners enough to go out of their way to watch this episode You and I how far this up on the W network watched it for the first time in a long time really a special show. Yeah it absolutely is and for some reason in my head because next week we're doing ninety five so my head. I'm all prepared for ninety five. There's a lot like all around ninety five. Just not necessarily even the shows much so I'm sitting there and I'm thinking I have the. WW Network played in my office. Twenty four seven. Because it's Vega twenty four seven in our fired up though Royal Rumble nineteen ninety and found myself just watching it Goya Royal Holy Shit What a fucking show excellent? I loved it man. It's at the peak of my Phantom as Kidon headon man so much. Good stuff around this. If you haven't already we're going to encourage you to watch this show. January twenty first nineteen ninety it went down in Orlando Sixteen thousand folks of course sell out a gay of one hundred and seventy thousand bucks are on our way to Wrestlemainia six and everything has has really started to come together by the end of the night here at the Royal Rumble. Speaking of that they've meltzer would report. The biggest news of the week is that as a virtual tool lock that the main event of Wrestlemania six which will be April first in the Sky Dome in Toronto. We'll be Hulk Hogan versus the Anabolic Warrior. I suspect they smell smart. That's coming from a little midget so jacked up on. Naturally it's pathetic. Well that's an allegation. Let's keep him well. No that is not what he he does. I didn't say an allegation of allegation him of anything. I'm just saying that for someone to make those accusations. I it's just it's just bullshit. Oh Shit Fuck you start off fuck in. I thought we were going to be in a good man today. I'm in a great mood today. Meltzer says I suspect a small angle shot rumble on the twenty-first if not the first angle air on the following Saturday nights main event. It started in the Saturday. Night's main event taped main event on January third in Chattanooga as warrior in Hogan. Were headlining against Mr Perfect. And the genius stage. One of the breakup occurred. After the finish of the match with Hogan pinning genius with the leg drop up the only reports I've heard third hand and sketchy but apparently Hogan was outside the ring while the heels or doubling warrior order made his own comeback was closed lining all all the heels all over the place bumping around like ping pong balls and it's Hogan Claw back into the ring. War was coming off the ropes and closed him quote unquote by accident the two goslar shoving one another and before blows are thrown to make up. Shake hands impose together unless this is a red herring. It seems that this will be phase. One one of the major angle with the Keefe as to air on the NBC special on February twenty third. So you guys are are clearly setting the stage here for warrior. Oh you're weaving see glimpses of that in the main event here of royal rumble. Nineteen Ninety when did you know wrestlemainia six. We're going with warrior. Yeah probably around survivor series. Maybe you know maybe even I even summer slam but deadlock in kind of locked in this world. We're going around survivor Chris Series because that was the biggest thing warrior was on fire and probably you know savage look. Savage had a hell of a run is the champion and Randy was the talk guy for a long time when Hogan was gone but even randy had been there for a while Oh and hadn't caught on the way ultimate warrior. Did this time where it was. Just electric in people wanted him. They wanted more for. Let's talk about the other possibilities. You know it's been reported a lot in the observer back then and even the torch they were sort of free styling that loose could have been an opponent for Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania and given the success of the movie and and the hype around the pay per view and obviously the success of Summer Slam. Maybe that could have been a thought you would also think that a rematch from Wrestlemania. Five which had all kinds of records. Maybe that could work while DVD. If it's it's not broke don't fix it but then also wonder. Was it ever considered since the Macho man was a very well established. He'll and he had drawn great money against Hogan at Wrestlemania. So many five. If everybody's really Gung Ho on the warrior was it ever considered that maybe it should be a baby. Face Warrior against a he'll macho man wrestlemania so many five or at that point. Did you just feel like hulk. Hogan Wrestlemainia were synonymous Cogan wrestlemainia definitely synonymous in the Kazushi saying that that was out the window as soon as we tried to get Zeus to step walk up the steps to get into the ring and all bets. It's were off there but other than casual conversation of all you know. What if this was never a serious contender? Vince wasn't big on on rematches. So is you you look at attractions. And that's how you have to look at it for an event like resume. You gotta look. What's the attraction? Not what what's GonNa be eighteen star match or bullshit like that you look at. WHAT DO PEOPLE WANNA see and also pick them? If you can't pick it that to me makes really good attraction as well where you go. They can't do this but then again they can't do that. And then you start running all these different scenarios issue your head and to me. That's the ideal attraction Walton. We know you guys are going to pull the trigger on it. You can find out more about WRESTLEMAINIA. Six in the archives. avs If you haven't already go subscribe on Youtube because they lost the little clips there from that show or the actual long show Does look up on Youtube but I do want to ask ask you know the two baby face a baby. Face Champ versus baby-faced Champ. It's a bit of an experiment one that doesn't feel like Vince has a lot of confidence Oakland San because he doesn't go right back to it. Do you think that maybe in hindsight wasn't the right call. I think at the time it was definitely the right call In by the way I was against it at the time because there was doubt from those within the industry that had been around warrior that just in Lichen didn't like his attitude and didn't care for him too much because people that felt that he didn't have respect for the business business and he was just in it for the money. And what have you now business wise. You WanNa look at. Who's going to draw the most money in who out of of your roster is going to make the most impact and when you do it that way and you have to look at it? Objectively Warrior was the guy in warrior. was everything that he was. Manning was getting up there he was popular and the audience. fucking wanted hurt him. So the baby face Baby Face Sling. That's something that I don't think we've done. You know really cents per se but nothing to this level in it had never been done especially with Hogan one of the things I've wanted to know. Oh you know specifically wouldn't you think about these. Two pieces of talent. was any other version considered in terms of baby face. He'll Dave would even in speculate. It's most likely that the end result of all this would be warrior he'll turn WBF booking is generally predictable pattern and the seems to be following the same pattern of the terms of the turns. Paul orndorff Andre the giant Randy savage all of which drew millions of dollars at the box office. But I've got this voice in the back back in my head wondering about all this. Forget the Hogan retirement rumors. Because I don't buy them but of Hogan wants out or to cut back on schedule the greatest thing Hogan could ever do for the WWF would be to put warrior over clean before he disappears from the scene and new create a successor as close to him would be possible but even though that will probably never happen we're is different. Apart from savage Andrei and orndorff Warrior is the first one who they've turned on Hogan that actually rivals Hogan popularity while Hogan is not in Warriors League the drawing card. He's actually more popular with kids. which is Titans Prime Audience Walla? Turn what work in this master's going to draw more money than any event in history. It's it's entirely best interests to keep warrior as a superman face in the long run. So the idea is the classic Wrestlemainia the main event and for that matter just wrestling storytelling for as long as we remember is good guys versus bad guys and it feels like way out of the realm of possibility that you would take all the momentum and goodwill Hulk Hogan is built over the last five or six years and just turn it on career and make him. He'll here. Was it disgust preliminarily. We're turning heel or Hogan turning it will it was discussed but dismissed pretty quickly too because you couldn't turn the original thing is well turn warrior on Hulk and and Hulk Hulk campy he oh my God but then that same argument applied to Royer ye couldn't have warrior be a heel and that was the norm. So let's do something different. Let's have hall. who was looking to take time off and get away eight from the business a little bit and this was his opportunity to take some time off? Take that summer off. Do your thing and we'll have someone else new in there. That can step right into those shoes. But what's better is if you know the whole sprinkles halt dust on him in annoyed sin so that was the feeling behind it that warrior defeating hall. That made him. That hadn't been done so that was the thought behind I did. It was discussed with very briefly. How much convincing that it take for for Hogan to buy in on this this just a casual conversation or is this something that you guys really have to work towards? Because you don't want to sort of kill the golden goose here. Well you know all those conversations took place tweet Vincent Hulk and I think that in the beginning that hulk was hulk real help knew what had to happen help knew that he needed to drop the championship in order for him to go away for awhile and halt wanted somebody set up into that place. You know probably more for anything to to come back and slay that dragon. You don't get that win back but I think that hulk was the jury is still out on whether or not warrior was the guy to do that and everybody had an opinion it probably took a little bit of convincing to get halt fully on board for it to be warrior but it wouldn't you pose a question to him if not warrior than who come back and go well. What's it's warrior? Yeah when you look at that roster Not just but this company but across other companies you really are sort of scratching their head like sorta slim pickens. But you know I have sort of free styled you know the what if of staying man that that could have looked a lot different. We'll talk about that more another time. I'm sure Manson would report. Lots of things going on at the start of the new year the most interesting seems to involve Titan sports in its battle with the pay per view indicators request TV and viewer's there's choice while the gist of the story has been gone into here in the past the plot thickens. Do the antics of the pay per view event this past Wednesday night and again over the past weekend on Syndication Titan is acknowledging their problems on the pay per view. Show during Hogan's interview. Gino Carolyn read a telegram stated that several cable companies won't be hearing the Royal Rumble and Todd Wrestlemainia into the package as well several times during the pay per view match and also throughout the weekend syndicated shows the announcers kept urging being fans to call and ride your cable company because quote a few of the companies will be hearing royal rumble. And if they don't they won't be hearing wrestlemainia either are they even went so far as to have Jesse Ventura talk about how he fought to defend the country and how it's un-american for the cable companies to not allow people the freedom to buy the paper view of their choice or words to that effect. Anyway here's how things stand to the best of my knowledge for the Royal Rumble around thirteen million homes with pay per view capacity. Right now of those only five point. Five million serve by companies in which the US either viewers choice or request TV or those companies owned a percentage Senate and therefore they will not be carrying the royal rumble. According to sources about four million homes have cleared which means that about three and a half million homes are served companies that are on the fence. The fact that they haven't been cleared yet means that they would be behind advertising the event which means probably no one will be carrying it a few thoughts. What's on this issue beyond the hypocrisy of Titan using the term unconstitutional? And then he goes on soapbox rent..
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
"You know, we've heard talking about it before he's not here to just be a welcome at for the new annex t athletes. He's not here to just be approving ground. So that the new annex t athletes can go on and do the next thing. I mean cast his own oh is a competitor in his own right, Cassius. Zona wants to be at the top of that mountain and. Yeah. I think that the bro is going to have to feel it this this this Saturday at an takeover. It's going to be a good show. It's going to be a good show and really like. You know, I I've never. I've seen I've seen going into takeovers like I I can't go in with low expectations anymore because I've seen cards where I go in. And I look at the the matches, and I go I don't know about this card like is this really pay per view worthy. And then the show blows my mind right now velveteen dream is not on the show. That's a big deal. Velveteen dream tweeted out that he was that he was not going to be appearing on any shows until somebody recognized his value. So we talked about whether or not you might show up at the Royal rumble. Who knows I think it would be cool if he did. But he's not going to be at at takeover this time, which is a B which is the first time in a while that he doesn't have a match. I mean, the annexed. He roster is really really loaded right now. And when you have five match shows. You've only got room for the Kremlin LA creme. On these shows. And that's what they've got here. So I can't wait to see it..
"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..
"royal rumble" Discussed on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast
"But they did like the two quirky finishes two years in a row. They've tried that in the past like for me, the two thousand Royal rumble, pay per view, Madison Square Garden is one of my favorites. But it's more because I like the Dudley Boyz Hardie Boys table match. I love the cactus, Jack, triple triple h streetfight with tax and everything amazing. What if triple h comes in wins, the world IB thing that was awesome? I love triple h do. I'd be like good for you hunter. Hey, boss. You are. Yeah. The back you go. The boys are happy. What if the taker went? I mean, stranger things have taken his comes in or Kane. Kane would suck. Yeah. That wouldn't be as good go. Go great. Great. Would Would it it be? be mayor if taker was take her wins, and you're like, oh, my God rematch wrestlemainia taker Brock, and then take her goes won't you Daniel, Bryan, you're like really why? The smaller guy that didn't end your streak. I mean, I guess some there for it. But we don't come in. We've done best case scenarios. What's worst case scenario winning this year like both men and women's? You think Charlotte winning the women's and then coming in taking on Rhonda? If it's just that. Because even if Charlotte one, and even if she challenges, Rhonda, you're still holding out hope that somehow their lease gonna throw it back in and make it a triple threat, right? It's better than nothing. Right. But we all know what we really want one on one. Rhonda, abandon machi- the man the most dangerous woman in the world, literally. You know, Becky Lynch being unconscious on her feet and bleeding is the best ending that Ross had all year. I mean, the fact that he's still want that paid off from survivor series. The broken nose might have made wrestlemainia much better this year because I was so excited for survivor series. Probably you know, worst case. I mean, you know, weird stuff could happen. Like what if nyah Jack's wins and his like Becky troop? I'm coming for you. I'm going to because they have set up case scenario. What do you think pisses? Wrestling fans off the most ivory ivory ivory coveted, Tori. Kick back. Yeah. I think. The talk coming into winning it. I know I think even if natty one that would be kind of this like cool good for you like NAT. We really do. I really like daddy. What if it was like? I'm forgetting her name Mandy rose. Yeah. I don't love Mandy rose. I mean, that's yeah. Yeah. It's not my that's my best case scenario. I don't know. Worst case scenario would be see it's not like we're not. In this period of time where there's this anti hero. Well, there was rolling much right? Like, we're not we're not which made last year rumble. Great because you're like fuck give. Right. And then they didn't. And you're like this great. Thank you. See? That's that's why it's the this is the ultimate benefit of having all benefit of having to champions is that even if they want Roman to main event wrestlemainia or they'll or the Roman type person, you're like, look, we're doing what we want wrestlemainia, and you have to understand this..
"royal rumble" Discussed on Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard
"Shop shit little local place got had big slabs of of Cowan there that he cut up. And bought a side of cattle. How much is that big huckabee's? Okay. Now, we're gonna punch on it for a while. So after after vent speeded up does he tell Howard Finkel throw it in this man, or what happened damn chop it up gender? Is it? Actually think that I think that is what happened. I think they did by and that the guy then cut it all up. Took home through in the freezer. God damn load up my car. Did you produce it? I did not. I did not know that was Vince and Shane production. It's amazing. So let's talk about the end of this show the corporate Royal rumble. The winner gets to be the thirtieth entrant into the Royal rumble match on paper view and the side features all of its male members while corporation includes shamrock boss Bosman came test and vitually Vince the size to himself a surprise entrant. And it looks like Vince wins when he don't AAA shin boss man, as they fight the ropes, but Jonah becomes the final surprising try and she throws McMahon out as he was distracted by Austin and unbelievable now, but China is the thirtieth Interent into the Royal rumble. I know you may gave Russo shit. This is pretty fun Jonah in the Royal rumble has she accidentally wins number thirty. What did you think? When you first heard the idea was anybody for it was anybody inst- it when it was brought up what the boys think about it. Well, it was fun and China was a hell of an attraction at the time. So for her to be in it that was a pretty damn cool thing. It was the first Benz loved I by God. So her in there now there were. I think there were talent. And I who I don't remember who specifically guys. I don't wanna girl throwing me out. But it wasn't a girl. It was China. And it was got damn get over it. But it was just it was a nice little addition. When you just when you think Vince is got this all tied up. She comes in screws everything up. But the, you know, the the bump bents took over was an indication where it was absolutely brutal damn near killed himself. But it was one of those things where it's like vents. You got you've got to you gotta train. You've gotta learn how to do all this shit, which he was. But there were some things that Vince would just throw himself into and go out and do sometimes of the very first time on live television out and out in the ring. He's he's just crazy and. This was one of them. And we're lucky that they didn't break his neck in. We have them anymore. Yeah. It could have been nasty, and it was a nasty Bob and raw wins for whatever. It's worth surprise as a five point five nine. Sure gets three point..
