"Well I have I have two answers and one of them is kind claimed cheating. The biggest superstar is the rock. But that's because he went on inmate movies not necessarily because of his career assure. Okay sure because he became the biggest movie star in the world and like everybody knows who the rockies. So if you want to Kinda cheat and look at it from that perspective. It's for sure the Iraq now if you look at just in pro wrestling I think the answer is Hulk Hogan I mean he's he's he's just the most famous professional national wrestler. He wasn't Steve. Austin it is peak drew more money and you know you could even argue like Vince McMahon. Because I think really everybody knows who gets band is is but you know he was. He was barely a wrestler. I mean he was a wrestler but it was just more of a gimmick thing but I I think the answer is Cogan. He you know. If you're in the northeast maybe you would say Bruno San Martino If you're looking at like the whole history of wrestling from from beginning to the end I mean it probably would beecham. Lawn does who was just absolutely incredibly gigantic. Two degrees people. Don't understand but nobody knows about him so I think that my response would be hoke. Yeah and just going back. 'cause I remember growing up in New Jersey I would go to the meadowlands to see wrestling. And if Hogan was on the card do you get a sold out show if he was not on the card. You get four thousand people and I don't think a lot of fans realize it and listen and we. We know this throughout the decades. Obviously that his name has gotten tarnished whether it's like the perception of what he did in WCW and now with the sex tape and everything else like people perceive him in a different way. But I'm being completely honest I would be at the metal and I was not a Hogan Fan I was I was not a quote quote Unquote Hogan Guy but that arena would shake when I tiger would play and he will be coming down the entrance ramp and then I would go the next month and he's not on a card and there before thousand people when it comes to Stone Cold Steve Austin they do that period of the WWF sold doubt no matter where was on the card and where they were. So I I kinda gauge it by well I mean the thing you got to look at too. Is the the thing with with Steve. Austin Steve Austin Lit. WF On fire so yes he rose everything like he may eight wwe popular which in turn led to everybody going to wf shows so he himself on the card. I mean if if he were on a card you know I mean usually soon but if he's not on the cards you sell out anyway and and that's the thing it's exactly like you said it was hoping it was the same the thing in the Awa. If he was on the card come there were thousands and thousands and thousands of people that ticket just to see him and if he wasn't then on the card they didn't buy a ticket and I think that like you know there's a lot of fans younger fancied that have zero concept of the draw in professional wrestling because because it doesn't exist anymore now it's totally all about the brand if wwe is hot. They sell a lot of tickets if WBZ's cold they don't sell a lot of tickets and you gonNa have set the ball and screaming rains. You know John Cena numbers a little bit but not like whole Oh Johnson and maybe run from you know you do. Fifty five hundred ended with items you seven thousand with them or something like that but nothing like what they did and and John Cena hasn't done that for use so there's no today the Desert Hulk Hogan and did and then there's been nobody did withhold Kokin Dibs for whoever Ryan. I'm wondering based on on the the readers at the wrestling observer and in your inbox does seem punk resonate Like he did when he was with the. WWe used by the way his wife April Ha Lee were on television. They showed a glimpse has been at the bears cowboys game so there at soldier field last night the punk resonate with viewers and listeners. There is as he did one when he rustled. No I mean it was really weird. Everybody is set the exact same thing. which was you know I never thought I? I never thought that punk would return to you. Know they call it w we show talk show and there's been a boy have I got it over for that one but I mean that's what it is. It's faulk show to think that he would come back in twenty nineteen and his big debut was in the last minute of show. Show that aired after midnight. And you know that was his return and the first big show he did one hundred and eighty thousand thousand viewers. And I mean it's just it's really amazing how little people care but he actually came back versus how much three four weeks ago. They acted like they would have cared if he came back and granted you know if he would have debuted in Chicago for survivor series and came back as a wrestler. We'd be having a totally different conversation but that's not what happened. Came back to. WWe backstage and it was like it wasn't even that big. I mean you know. punked it the video where he goes. I'm not just going to break social media to break the world and it's like he didn't break the world even bring social media. I mean people talked about it and they were over it and they've moved on. I mean I I I figure next on the show is GonNa do a good number but you know you're talking a good number of a a great number one hundred thousand viewers so it's just amazing the that's his big return to this world. It's pretty crazy Brian Man. I'm sorry we kind of bogarted all your time this morning. I mean honestly we could talk to you for hours and we really have you know because you've avoided us for ten years for ten years you've avoided this show. Oh so then is I lived on the West Coast with very serious eight hours. Okay got it wrong and and we appreciate that Dave meltzer forgetting ghost. I mean the guy you know endeavor. It doesn't even call me back whatever. But that's I digress. I'm glad that you came on and honest honest to God. I loved the book. The book again is one hundred things. WWe Fans should know and do before they die. It's the perfect gift for wrestling fan. Make sure you get it. I'm sure it's available everywhere. Amazon DOT COM but Brian Truly truly appreciate the time.

"I don't remember you call in Morrow I remember even tweet was it was just like to me. It was an Oculus tweet. Steer -tated so I tweeted that and then next thing you know there's there's ten thousand likes eight million comments. I never heard another thing for corey graves and you know he. He never took the offending tweet down. I was I mean he. He apologized to frank shamrock. MMA fighter and manager but he didn't apologize tomorrow which which I thought was pretty cowardly like even apologize to the guy that can you know pummel you but not the guy that you actually really badly put in a bad state and you know I think to Corrie was all about man. I'm the victim here. Look what happened to me I mean I had. I had all these things and people were doing. Vince and people were saying this is what about what you said tomorrow. That's the bottom line. What about what you said tomorrow and there was there was I? I don't know what the status of it is now Maros it was back in but it was just a very very bad situation. I thought he handled very badly. And that was it now. I know he he Publicly apologized corey graves And we talked about bullying. I talked about this at length on the show and and listen yes and I think we all agree. That Moore was phenomenal on commentary. Moro somebody that you know probably isn't suited for three man booth on a show because you know he's so you know listen you know you didn't need To many commentators with the Joey styles like he's he's so good at what he does that probably you we know Nigel. McGuinness and Beth Phoenix probably. Don't get a lot of airtime during the broadcast because that star of more or NAO shine shines so bright so I'm not saying that everything that Corey said listen. Maybe he made some good points. Maybe he's like. Hey you know what maybe you can tone down though. I don't think I think that would suit him but I don't. I just don't understand why you would choose to go to social media to make those remarks like if if you if you really felt that way. Then maybe you might want to say that to somebody within your organization that you all work with and say you know what may be a three-man booths not suited needed for more or something but to go to social media knowing they had publicly said that you know he has problems with anxiety and problem with dealing think things with things especially publicly. I just don't scratch my head wondering why. He made that decision to go. Well I mean there's social media more to it than that because you've got to remember that whole thing with Mara Renaldo and Cheapie L.. I mean Corey. Graves was on the show that day. It's not like Corey graves. Doesn't know that Mario Oh can be set off like this and then when Corrie tweeted me he was like what you don't understand how this world works like your for a little while I was like what are you talking talking about and then I figured it out that what he was saying was well. I'm just I'm just working field pro wrestling thing like you can be a total a total jerk work and if somebody calls you want it you just say it's working brother. That's what he was saying and to me. It was even more irritating. Because if you're working okay if you're trying to do. You would annex t versus raw smackdown few because of survivor series week. Because that's what he's claiming he's doing. Why don't you bury Nigel? And Beth Phoenix. Like if you WANNA go on social media and do some sort of goofy storyline what you do. Is You bury the whole announced team. Just say we're going to show the annex t announced him how it's done it survivor series. Something like that. But he didn't do that. He you targeted one guy targeted morrow. He put over bath. He put over Nigel. So once you do that to me. I mean this is not the survivor series. He's weakened view. This is going after one guy in social media and if you really have a problem with the guy if you actually have a problem with how much he talks then you go to them in private get over survivor series weekend. When you know you're GONNA be the same place you say model you know what? Sometimes it goes a little bit crazy. Maybe you should look Nice. Chocolate can't do it on social social media. No absolutely and when I first saw the tweets and I'm just going to say what I've said on the air about it. Yes moral could give a little bit more to Nigel and Beth because they do have something to offer. You don't have to call every single move. No you don't have to do that but Marles still the best having said that. And you're talking in about three person booth well you know. Moral has done this and M. A. and boxing it's not like he's not used to it and if you listen to those broadcasts moral is actually giving more to the analysts. So what Cory. The premise of what Corey said. It's true. Yeah I would love to hear more from Nigel because I think he's one of the best if not the best color man. The business and Beth is is really coming along strong. She does a really good job. But here's the thing Brian this so funny about this. If you're going to send that tweet out you say oh I'm just working well are is this will be a Wrestlemania. Aluminium match between moral and graves. Is that a match that we're GONNA be seeing some time soon if you if you if you are trying to say well. I'm just doing it tongue in cheek. Then and you. We know the issues with moral. Then why would you do. It clearly was on purpose. Is something we should win face to face. Yeah he did not affect and by the way when it comes to the the apology apology. He said on his podcast after the bell that he apologizes but never apologize tomorrow. Here's the interesting. The these two moral in graves will not see each other more than likely until Tappin Wrestlemainia. What's that going to be like when you have a million announced tables around the ring as they do in the wwe? The annexed table's going to be their moral and corey going to have to see each other at some point. What is GONNA happen? There I is this all started by graves. It was totally unnecessary. Or if or if moral Laura may not be comfortable and maybe has problems with anxiety and stuff leading into that where he may not want to do the broadcast. You know to find mind. I I don't know how it's GONNA end up. Let's get back to the book because because Brian I I did read this book. I loved the book I think this would make a perfect tall day gift for a WWe Fan for pro wrestling fan. Because I love the fact that you get into and this is not I have to say this is not typical. WWE Book. And when. I say that I don't mean that in a negative way meaning that you do talk about things that probably a lot of. WWe Me Publications. Wouldn't do for example. Chris Benoit you bring up Chris Benoit's And I know a and you said this publicly you had a relationship with Chris Crispin Wa. I'm sure that must have been a tough part of the book for you to do. Yep I knew him pretty well actually actually and when he killed his family you know I was doing the figure four weekly newsletter every week and and so I had to write I write about it and we didn't happen. I sat down one day and I just started typing and I wrote up the entire tire newsletter with all of the Info about you know what I known about him and anyway when I was done I published and then I never read it back not one time I never proof read it I just I just I couldn't and so I moved on on and I always had people saying Oh man that that issue figure four was so great Blah Blah Blah. I learned so much but I never looked at it and so when I had to write this chapter I mean I remember a lot about that period but there was also stuff that I didn't remember because because I totally blocked it out of my mind so I had to go back. I had to read that newsletter. For the first time I had to go back and find a letter that he sent me after. Eddie Guerrero passed away and read that. I put the letter in the books for some ever published anywhere. I had to go back and relive all of that stuff and it was was brutal to remember all of that and as as you know we talked about a little bit earlier. I I do another show where we review Ron nitro from the Monday night. Wars and I've been watching all of these Chris Benoit matches and it was it was I was able to separate what it was watching being on. TV from what really happened. Just trying to watch it and just watch the matches and not really think about it too much but you know things were different. After I reread everything thing and wrote that Chapter I mean it's it's much more difficult to watch. Ben Woz matches today than it was before When I had blocked a lot of stuff out of my mind ended and was able to separate it so very very hard chapter two right but you know they asked me when when we were talking about doing the book they he said? You know. It's just GONNA be a book for kids or it's GONNA be a book for everybody like are we gonNA talk about Fokin sex tape. Are we not going to and Dan. I said listen. I'M GONNA write this book the best I can for everybody. So like if you're eleven and you WanNa read this for a book report like you can. But it's GonNa talk about everything and I won't be. I won't be explicit about you. Know Hokkien sex tape or anything like that. I won't be explicit or anything but you know what this book to be for everybody. If you're a fan who's been watching for fifty years books for you if you're a kid who's eleven knows nothing about anything you'll learn something about me the and the books for you but yeah we cover everything Brian. When you know you get this often whether it's on the phone lines or an email about bin Wa? The hall of fame was what is usually a reaction to have been won the hall of fame. Well I mean the thing with Ben won the hall of fame. Is Dave meltzer The Observer. He set up a very specific set of rules and it's modeled. After the Baseball Hall of fame. You talked to a lot of people and basically basically what it is is. There's a list of names and all of the readers vote and if somebody gets sixty percent they go in and it has nothing to do with with what Dave was has nothing to do with it I want I mean there's people that Dave things should be in that. Aren't there people. I think she'd be in that aren't there are people that we think should be in that. shouldn't be in that are are I mean it's it's it's just. This is the readers. It's up to the readers to vote so Ben Wild Win it and then I think it was two. You were three years later. Maybe I forget the year that he went in but then he killed his family and so you know everybody was clamoring. He's gotTa be removed. He's gotTa be removed. He's gotta gotta be so so. Dave talked to people who do real Halston Hall of fame and question was if this happened in baseball for example you know how would it be handled and the answer was well. There's another vote and sixty percent vote to remove. Then you remove him and if they don't then he's in and it's over and so dave that's what they did for the observer and he explained what was going on. He explained the rules. There was no question about what was happening. And everybody voted and I don't remember the number but it was under sixty percent and so because it was under sixty percent sent he's in and so that's just the way that it worked and you know people get mad. They get mad about the holiday every year. They get mad about observer voting. I can't believe David. Dave gave Kenny Omega this or that like even anybody anything he doesn't put anyone in or out of the hall of fame. This is all in the hands of the readers. The readers put Benoi and the readers voted not to remove him and so he's in and Dave just felt. That was the first way to do it. You know going back to the book and and I love how you broke down on the book. 'cause you give BIOS stories of of all the special characters and personalities and wrestlers that. WWe Fans that may be of a younger generation would not know but should know and then you get into like activities and events that wwe fans should go to as well. Obviously you know Wrestlemainia Ania And it got me thinking -cause I'm looking at and this has been a big argument in the ten years that we've been on the air and everybody has a different opinion and you could tell a the difference of opinion from generation to generation. So I'll ask you Brian. Who is the biggest superstar in the history? Yeah the WWe.

"No car required Ryan. How are you man? What's going on first of all? I can't believe this show has been on for over ten years and this is the first time that you've been on busted open. It's it's astonishing but there's a first time for everything so today's the day all right this week man loves first time ever and this is the first time ever Bryant here. Brian tell us just before. Talk about your book. Can you tell us what irks you more in. Twenty one thousand nine. Is it wrestling fans or rustling creative. Oh man it depends on the a day if it's if it's during raw it's wrestling creative if it's Let's see what it'd be I. I guess it's Thursday afternoon when we get the W. Annex t ratings Thursday afternoon in about One Thirty Pacific. It's by far for for sure wrestling fans so it all depends on the T.. In the situation you know and and it's it's funny Brian. 'cause you know and you tweet it out before that you're coming on the show today and we tweeted out that you're going to be a part of the show you would have thought it was a it w versus annex t you. 'cause a lot of controversy wherever you go go people love that you're coming on people. Hey you coming out like when you look at two thousand. Nineteen Jonathan just said with wrestling fans like When I was growing up when Jonathan was growing up you know we watched everything now? There are probably shows and organizations you preferred more or than others. NWEA guy but I still watch AWA and WWF. Does it surprise you. That like fans are taking sides like does it surprise you that there's all this. Hey especially Brian for like over a decade all fans wanted was is another option. They get it but yet there seems to be this blind loyalty going on. It surprises me a little bit. Because it's exactly like you said that's what everybody wanted. Forever was an alternative and we finally have an alternative. It's on national television. It's on TNT. Hinchey it's on a strong network and and there's a strong group of fans who just wanted to to fail and you know you mentioned you mentioned when you were a kid and watching everything I think. One of the differences today is if you watching. I realized like the Saturday night six. Oh five show was two hours but there were a lot of shows When a lot of us were younger the we're only our like when the Monday night were started raw and Nitro? We're only hours so you can watch both of those shows and we're spending two hours of your week watching wrestling and then the following Monday you watch two hours again and we're now at this point where you know it just a follow raw. You're watching three hours. And if you WANNA follow Ron smackdown. You're watching five hours if if you want to add at x t to that watching seven hours and then of course. There's the pay per views on top of that which used to be. You know two hours and forty-five minutes now we're talking the three and a half hours school out five hours. Count the pre show. I mean there's so much wrestling that you have to watch follow wwe. I think some some fans it's like that's their wrestling is debit me and there's now an aws two hours and you just most people can't watch all of that wrestling and so I think that there's some fans of just decided they're gonNa Watch. WWe They don't WanNa hear about New Japan they don't WanNa hear about a w they don't Wanna a here about anything they don't want to hear that it's better. They don't WanNa hear that people like it to them. They're wrestling debit me and they just don't WanNa hear that there's something else out Brian when you host your show Adveniente Craig when you go back and look at the raw and Nitro from nineteen twenty years ago. I always wonder about what if what if social media was around during that time. Now I mean what do you think it would have been like. It would twitter and social media having a divide in this between the Monday night like wars would raw and Nitro. I mean I think it would be exactly what you see today. It just depend on. How big how big the social media would've been back then? I mean obviously now you know look at all the people that have their on some form of social media whether it's facebook twitter. Whatever I mean? It's complete insanity and there was a lot of insanity in the nineties but it was different. Because you know if you wanted your voice heard you had to write letter somewhere. You had to call in to a radio show somewhere you have to write alerted observer. You know it was hard to get an individual's than it is today and so I think it would've been just as insane back then as it is now but it's hard to say because the wrestling landscape was also different. It was the nineties. You know the fans one thing about today is the fans are are there. They're horrible on social media. I mean I hear every day from people in wrestling the toxic fan. That's the word I hear. Every eight toxic twitter's toxic but the reality is when you go meet people like if I went to star cast like when when I went to star cast every single person that came up to me was so nice like everybody attempted star cast just the nicest group of fans and everybody was polite patiently waiting in line. If you remember like the fans in the nineties I mean think about what they used to chant shows they would throw do things that the ring I mean they were they were. They were much more fans quite frankly in real life in the nineties then they are here today. Now it's like a a friendly group of fans that just a lot of them happen to have social media and there's no filter on it and there's no consequences to what they say or do so they just go crazy. Yeah and I agree with you that if there was social media back in the nineties during the Monday night war we we getting something very very similar. Who knows maybe maybe even worse because people were taken sides like that and and listen and Jonathan? We've talked about this like I know like when I tuned into TBS on July fourteenth. Eighteenth Nineteen eighty-four. And so of Vince. McMahon's face instead of Gordon solely like that would give you a reason to hate the wwe but like now here in two thousand and nineteen. You know you I mean I think it's possible to say you know what I loved. I wish people would praise more. What's good about all pro wrestling right now? Then point out what's bad about pro wrestling or or maybe begin. O'Brien that doesn't make for good Good conversation it doesn't but it's just like instincts else in the world. It's it's much easier to complain about something than to. I shouldn't say people have more of a tendency to point out things that are wrong. Talk about things that are great and you know. There's a lot of people that they don't listen into the they don't listen to myself. They don't lead newsletters. They hear a blurb. You're an internet. Also all I was saying okay. Whenever does he just hates everything? And Yeah giving. You may see a clip that you make somebody talking about something that I hate it but really this stuff that I love about. Let's especially awesome. What status it's funny that people go so crazy about out? Brian biased towards Awa in Brian's being paid by W does no one listened to my reviews of Annex. T I love it. I absolutely love Annex T I love W I love the main roster things are good but unfortunately I think a lot of the time things are things are not good but not. Everything's perfect Brian. Bochum book one hundred things. WWE W. E. Fans should know and do before they die. I'm interested in trying to find out from you. What were your your thought process of putting this together? What will you was going through? Your mind has your writing this. Well done the death of WCW and the death of WCW has been in print for like fifteen years. And and it's still the audible book and here back in hardcover and kindle. I mean they'll still be in the Amazon top ten in wrestling Regularly so it was a very very successful book it was about something that you know was the boom period everybody knew about. WWW in the war so but it was very hard to write it was. It was very very difficult and we ended up doing the Updated edition which was not as hard art but still very very hard. And so when I finished death of W W I had no intention of ever writing another book again and people ask me to do a TNA book. And I was like. I'm I'm not doing it to you in a book and you know just different various ideas and I when I was approached about this one the hundred things book I basically saw it as kind of an opportunity to write a book about everything. WWe related. I'd already written a book about everything. WCW related and and. I figured at the time that well you know everybody. Everybody knows me so you know I can write a book. I can kinda right about everything everything I can. I can study it. I grew up W S I mean when I was a kid. That's what was on television around here. I I I got an n w a little bit later. 'cause then I found that but you know I I started watching. WWF and I've watched WF without any breaks exceptions or anything since like nineteen eighty. Six nineteen eighty-seven so this was my chance to write about it. And I I figured you know I'm GonNa do one more book. I'm GonNa do this one here here and so that's why chose to do it. You know it's funny Brian. It's a wwe book that's not a wwe book which means that like you know it's not published by the wwe which we normally see. was there any pushback with you. Releasing this book I heard nothing ethic and when the publisher approached me I mean when they drew up the cover. I mean if you look at the cover of the death of WCW re the issue. I mean it's like a gold stamped with the words death of w there's no photos there's noth- so when they approached me with the cover it's like Becky Lynch is on the cover were issued right front and center in the cover and I think Roman reigns and some others and I was thinking man. You know I'm I'm not sure can even do this cover. But they said we can and do the cover we can do the cover and so they did it and I never heard anything. I'd never heard any blowback about the book. I mean I felt that I was fair. I mean as far as the content of the book. I did everything I could to try to write the most fair book that I could so no. I never heard never any negativity anything like that about publishing a an unauthorized me book Brian. What is Corey Graves problem? What's his issue? What's his malfunction function? Which is why I don't? I don't understand why he's attacking you and Dave on twitter. I mean he could pick up the telephone if he has an issue about what you guys are. Writing are saying what's his pilot that's a that's a very good question. I mean he he did a tweet bearing Marlin although for his job that he did at takeover and you know morrow had a breakdown over it and I was upset about tape was upset about it. A lot of fans were upset about it and you know Mara was was offensive. I think that that's the thing about the story that was that was irritating. Rotating to me. was how defensive was. It wasn't like you know what I made a mistake. I'm sorry it was one of the double down. and he came after Dave and and then I made a comment on the the whole comment was exactly what you said like you so met Dave. Meltzer is not calling me. Dave Meltzer is not calling all accurate. Dave Meltzer is not calling me and all it was tweet out. You've got a phone..

"Favorite. Don't you WANNA see a company like a w succeed. Believe me they're not gonNA put the wwe out of business. They're not going to be canceling any any of the wwe shows but it's good for pro wrestling that there's other companies out there that are healthy so you would think. Hey you know what. Maybe I'm I'm I'm the biggest. WWe Fan in the world. But you know I'm going to root for eighty w because as we always say competition is what's best for any company and finally the WWE has another company out there that may not be a threat but at least will make them think about what they're doing and they're not gonNa mail it in each and every week okay. Let's talk about this historical context. You've heard this phrase before but we might be educating people with this when we had Florida wrestling when we had had the chic in Detroit when we had a the von Ericsson world-class in Dallas when we had Don Owen and Portland when we had Wrestling in Georgia. Obviously in mid South the one thing that would always be said by someone in those offices is house New York doing house New York doing meaning the wwe because it was known known as New York ago. The New York office. So but here's the phrase that pays the phrase would be house New York doing because what happens. In New York will trickle down onto our success as a wrestling company. And we're talking about the territory's now talking about in the seventies and eighties but everything kind of was centered around. What's New York doing? If New York's doing boxoffice if New York's doing well would pay per views if New York is doing well as far as butts in seats at the garden or in that territory at the time. Now there's a trickle Michael Down because now the success of New York was in the magazines back then people will talk about the WWF whether you are a fan or not but now because of the interest especially in the early times. When Vince took over for his dad now other companies were able to eat other companies? Were able to do well. The success of the WWe is why aws doing so well because the success of the wwe with their tent pole events you know they'll wrestlemainia and and royal rumble and survivor series their tent pole all of events that when they are selling those buildings and when there are people that are watching that show that affects a w words like okay well. I don't like what I'm seeing here here or I think it's okay but if there's a wrestling event in my area as an Awa person I'm GonNa go see it tempting. MSW same thing with with impact and all the other companies when New York does well. Everyone does well and so I think that's still holds true today in twenty nine thousand nine hundred whatever you think of the. WWE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO A. W because they say well rustling hustling is cool again or it's interesting Lemme see wrestling in my area and so the success of a w you again. Aws doing fine for themselves for the the WWe thumbs up or thumbs down is getting people to watch a W if you don't know Sirius Xm than listen up commercial free music plus sports comedy talk and news. They have it all a lot of people think you need a car to enjoy Sirius. Xm But you don't. You can listen outside the car right now you can get your first three months of Sirius..

"XM APP hats off to the NWEA. Hey Stu Bennett. By the way on the microphone. That'll be an interesting thing with him. Doing color now yeah. I'm looking forward to that man and I'm looking forward to storm against allders for the NWEA championship the question. Mark is now my favorite wrestler in two thousand and nine thousand nine Karachay. I love you. Want how Georgia championship wrestling is a question. Mark on honestly like he comes in and I could just see a Gordon solely and a question mark has moving out now and here. He comes in right through the curtain. You GotTa love a question Mark Because that is old schools old school. Nobody knows who the question mark is. And that's you know what that's the essence of wrestling. We're not supposed to be able to go online and find out who the question. Mark is just. Enjoy the question. Artful who he is first of all Jonathan Hood let me praise you on your Gordon solely impersonation and I love the fact he just said I appreciate the question mark for who he is right. Whoever you are whoever he is appreciate the man and I'm glad you said appreciation because we need to appreciate pro? I'm I can't believe I'm actually avenue conversation like I can't believe that you and I like if if if you and I knew. Were doing a show a year ago. We thought we'd be talking about the history of world class championship wrestling or the history of mid South Wrestling Sling. Or maybe we would have booked an interview with B Brian Blair like I. That's what I thought you and I would be doing on a day like this but you know what I this is a conversation. We do need to have seriously because I kind of want to get to the bottom of it. I WANNA understand why fans are taking sides and and and you know Jonathan. I don't know if you get it but like if I'm on the air and I pray W I get I. Alex was S- created photocalls. Last yes on yesterday. Show where somebody was like. I'm S- I'm sucking. Aws Ass. Who is the line that a caller caller us because I praised the show from Wednesday night? And then if I praise and say that I'm a wwe bark. And I'm on Vince McMahon's McMahon's payroll like it's ridiculous. That's why yesterday I just said you know. What my favorite show is Nwea so now now nobody can point the finger of blame name when it comes to anything and W as my favorite show? And it's you know and that kind of puts the end to this whole silly w annex t the argument you made the big reveal yesterday. That surprised me when I was driving the car like all Dave said it there it is he put out there already knew the answer. Because of our phone conversations conversations people have to know by the way this is just a just kind of an extension of me in Dave's foams conversations about wrestling is just now spilled over here on busted open but now you made the big reveal and nobody can mess with you which is great and Jonathan. Come on man. We we wanted this. I mean and listen. This isn't taking anything away from the WWE WWE's a monster but people wanted options and annex t is a third brand for the wwe. That I love. I prefer annex t over smackdown or Monday night raw. I think most of our fans would agree with it. And maybe you're the biggest exte- fan on the face of earth. You love you sleep. Eat and breathe that day. Well what's wrong with then. DVR ING E W and watching. It ended at ten o'clock or watching the next day. I don't understand why everybody has to pick aside because if you remember when we were younger Jonathan like we had to go up against all these people that hated pro wrestling said. Why would you watch that? It's fake what's wrong with you grow up now that we don't have that because pro wrestling is part of pop culture you know. ESPN talks about pro wrestling. So you really don't have that group of people that do it so instead it's like wrestling fans have to fight so now we're gonNA fight amongst each other doesn't make any sense it doesn't. It does not because we you should be able to enjoy a pro wrestling for for what it is. He reminds you when you had all these options back in the day. You you watch everything. It may not have been your cup of tea but you didn't hate read it remember. I'm I'm from Chicago. I come from Virg- TV in the AWA. You know the AWA. The the home of ten thousand squash matches five thousand grade. promos is at one angle a year that this this is where I'm from here watching the Awa you know so you know. I'm I'm watching that on a regular basis and Bob looses wrestling that was on with bruiser and crusher back in the day. Those are the things I'm watching. I'm watching that and other wrestling and enjoying it. Because at least we have that as wrestling fans imagine if there's just one company and and for years just recently with just one company to watch now it gets one of the things to watch us really fun as a wrestling fan and like with A. W you're you're getting also Jim Ross or getting Tony Chevanton. You have Chris Jericho you have Jon. Moxley cities are faces. You're familiar with and if you're and and if if you're an eighty w loyalists and you know you've got tired of the wwe way and the way wwe does stings. And how it's gotten stale will you can't say that about annex not so like maybe you're not happy with raw or smackdown but annexed completely different animal. You know so I again. I don't understand the hey well look at it from this point from Annex T. I understand why someone would be an annex t fan because it looks and smells and breeds. He's like pro wrestling. Because triple h hands are on it I I love an xt and really enjoy watching. Because if they pro wrestling show no frills. I know silliness. No bad writing is just professional wrestling. Same Awa W has has got a lot of elements of old all school wrestling in it. In which you have longer matches which I have no problem with I have no problem with longer matches especially when you have a thin roster but what we're seeing here is we're seeing in quality rustler's like Moxley and pock and cody and Jericho and by the way. Just just between you and I the real money is is in Ray Phoenix as a singles there. There's a guy that is exciting to watch the real money of Jericho against Phoenix. So so on both sides. When you have AWA champion the only spear infant valor and Keith Lee and and Finn Baylor again? Both rosters are filled with quality. And we haven't even talked about Ron smackdown smackdown because we don't have to on Wednesday nights we've got quality and it's great. Yeah and again if you don't like raw smackdown that's fine. It's funny to people who hate on at the MOS. Those are the people who still watch it every Monday and Friday. But you know if that's not your if that's not your thing and you know you're not a wwe Wfan then enjoy what you do watch but don't hate on the people who do enjoy watching. WWE and at the end of the day. It's all pro wrestling US fans hands and you and I are fans at the end of the day. I mean I know I know we're media members but we're fans at the end of the day like we need to band together we we're we're all in this together so let's celebrate pro wrestling and like that sixty six year old man that took forever to get his point across. You know fairly and I mean many times running out on the guy for God's sakes you got other things to do get your free can point across and move on but God that you made the phone call like this is probably the best era of pro wrestling so you know what celebrate it. Enjoy it because five years ago..

"I'm the one of the best tag team wrestlers in the history and I'd say Nope nope it's bobby okay. Are you like a-. Are you like an innovator of anything like can I say I call. Tommy innovator of violence is there anything like that. I could say no. You could just say daybreak records friend Jonathan. That's fine. That works all right. So David Greco his friend the one and only Jonathon Hood Man. Well how our the job with them. It's good to hear from you buddy. No I'm doing great and boy I tell you as as you and I as wrestling fans from way back going back to the territory Tori Day to where we are right now. I remember the call of the called in yesterday at a busted open. He was sixty six years old and he talked about how you watch wrestling during the time of Bruno San Martino and watched him as a kid to where we are right now he says is a great time to be a wrestling fan and it is a great time to be a wrestling fan. So I'm just I. I'm just happy that in two thousand nine hundred and we have so many other things besides the wwe. We have so many other things to talk about because when he was just one company it it became a little bit stagnant but now we could appear all the rest and companies across the country and around the world and as wrestling fan. I'm thrilled to be able to do that. And Jonathan. That's a really good point by you because you've referenced. The call from our show yesterday gentlemen like you said that was sixty six sane and of all the decades and all the years that he's watching pro wrestling wrestling. This is the best time to be a wrestling fan. And I kind of agree you know probably I would maybe go back to you know when we first started watching in the early eighties but if you look at what's going on right now with the wwe with a e w with new Japan pro wrestling and ring Avante are in impact wrestling. This is an amazing exciting time. And the and the resurgence of the NWS. What a wonderful time to be a wrestling fan? But honestly you wouldn't know it by reading social media and you wouldn't know it by some of the phone calls we get here on busted open. I'll know as as as a bus no open the nation member. I listened all the time so I know exactly what you're talking about. But here's the thing for me as a wrestling fan. I'm just concerned about what what I see on my screen. What I see on my tablet when I'm watching wrestling social media is not is not necessarily something? I'm looking at until after the shows those are done if I'm watching the NWEA in which. I'm watching every Tuesday. I'm enjoying that show for the hour. If I'm watching AL W I'm watching that show on sports for the hour and enjoying what I'm seeing see. Here's the thing that will never happen for me as a fan. That's been watching wrestling since. Nineteen seventy eight. One thing that I for sure outside influences Lawrence's will not make me think otherwise of a show that I'm watching they. You could read whatever you want but for me. I'm GonNa always have my feeling people. People can say whatever you want to social media. I will enjoy what I enjoy what wrestling the thing is. What's Today's wrestling fans for? Whatever reason Dave is that they're so oh focused on what wrestling writers are saying? So focused on what other fans are saying to try to kind of twist and turn their opinion. Know your opinions your opinion. You don't worry about what someone else's thinking you're about what you enjoy the wrestling fan. But here's the thing. Jonathan you just said you've been watching wrestling since the late seventies so I think you're added to in your love and your passion for pro. Wrestling is very very different than somebody. Who may be in their twenties or maybe watching wrestling for for the first time Bryan Alvarez who has a new book called a hundred things? WWe Fans should know and do before they die And he's he's obviously works with Dave Meltzer. He is a part of wrestling observer. They have dave kind of changed the culture on how people watch pro wrestling. Maybe in a way you can talk about you know. Busted Open has changed the culture on how people watch pro wrestling. I think when you look at that right now until like when we were growing up it's people watch it in a completely different way. Our information on wrestling was the wrestling magazines. And you know those magazines were not shoot see. There's a difference right there right when you're coming up we're going to the magazine stands and we're looking at rustling I I or giving those Those after Max back in the day we were entertained by the posters in the information that was in there even though a lot of it was not not real but it was just entertaining now so many wrestling fans are concerned about the business of the wrestling business and to me. It's really about. Hey here's what's going on the ring winging. Here's the presentation of the match. Here's a presentation of the show. Do I like it. Thumbs up brick dumbs down. We get so concerned about ratings now and listen. That's one to talk about but we can't be consumed about it as a wrestling fan that well since this show didn't win this Wednesday night. That means that I should watch this show or this show sucks. Well No oh no you enjoy what you would enjoy. We can't get caught up in newsletters and and what is being said online to shape or opinion as wrestling fans. I think that yes. It is a different era but I think at the same time we should be able to just enjoy what we see in the ring and enjoy the shows shows now Jonathan for people who don't know you're also a sports talk host. Do you work also a little bit with. NBA Radio here on Sirius. Xm You host host on ESPN Chicago. We'll talk about all sports. As a matter of fact you are covering the bears cowboys game last night. So you know this better than anybody. Is this just with when it comes to progressing or is this sports. Talk in general because it seems like even when it's whether it's the NBA whether it's an NFL or Major League baseball a lot of times people are more concerned about what's going on off the field than what's actually going on on the field. Well put it this way. I've never taken a phone call already here in the NBA season about how the ratings are down in the NBA because ratings are down to the NBA. So I haven't taken a call about at that but we do take calls on wrestling content about ratings and we talk about attendance and the thing that pisses you off like pisses me off. Is that you go to a time line and you see someone taking a picture of empty seats in a raw pas. The shit out of me that does that does nothing for me as a wrestling fan and by the way a a lot more times than not those pictures of empty seats is some of those. Sections are cordoned off about for television. And so they want to be able to embarrass Erice an organization by saying look at all these empty seats. This is not so you shouldn't be interested in it. And that we talked about shaping the way rustling fans look at things they look at that that pitcher and say well. Maybe that's not interesting so look at look at the the ratings for the NFL the ratings for the NBA Major League Baseball and in the issues is there as far as attendance in ratings in the regular season fans on talk about that. I've never taken a call about that. People don't tweet me about that but at wrestling here in the sport that we love and wrestling. That's always a conversation. It's not just the in ring is not just how show can get better. It's about numbers and again that's the multiplication multiplication of the wrestling twenty nineteen. All right so let's get to the bottom of it because I think this is an interesting conversation because like you said it when it came to a head yesterday with bullying with some of the phone calls there seems to be like wwe loyalists that only care about the wwe and hate on a w and then our fans ends at our age w loyalists and you know what they hate everything that's wwe. How did this start? How did this culture start now? I can't can't really blame it on one person because you like you said the The Day MELTZER and Dave Meltzer. And you know what he's been doing. He's been doing that for decades you you know. He's been D- newsletter is been around for a very very long time so what is the justification. What is the foundation? How did this start and one I? I just think it's the social media aspect right like okay. So when we were wrestling fans in the in the late seventies you and I in the in the early eighties watching wrestling thing it. Alex asked the question if there was twitter. Would we be talking. We have talked about this on social media back then probably so but maybe not as what what is much vitriol. But here's the difference back then. We respected the sport for what it was watching it because it was entertaining and it wasn't like friends of mine at least not in my circle. Were saying well the WWF sucks. And I like the way no everyone because you know why because if you remember back in the day they had all these rustling blocks WWF NWEA AWA and you'd see wrestling for like six or seven hours hours on a on a syndicated television show so it wasn't like it sucked you just like you do is different and it was entertaining but but no one was saying out loud. This vis absolutely sucks. I'm not GonNa Watch you know I. I don't know if social media was back then that I'd be saying that on social media in the eighties if he was around why. Yeah but here's the thing Jonathan doing busted open for over ten years so fertile longest time. WWe dominated I know there was TNA TNA Kinda Anna. You Know Pete a little bit of a dent in pro wrestling and they did their rating and they they had some good live attendance and some good shows than any other. Hey by the way they have their numbers were TNA is what you see on smackdown now from a number stay. Yeah if you if you look at it. Bully talks about that a lot they they they nee- ear two million when they when they were on Spike TV and I know that was a different era and things have really changed in the way fans consume pro wrestling has definitely changed change but but but people wanted something different from the wwe. They were kind of tired of the same old same old and now they're getting it and they seem to be unhappy like like I'm not telling people to turn off the wwe. I'm not I'm not on people to stop watching the wwe but what's wrong with watching coaching. MSW OR A E W or new Japan or are away. It's like I don't understand why everybody has to pick aside and has. Did this start with the Monday night. Wars with the Monday night wars. I guess there was the WWe fans against a WCW fences and everybody wanted that. War again is that what's now been created in two thousand and nineteen so you just you just hit it right there my friend you hit it right there because of money like wars made you choose you. Just sit right there because you had a choice of you can back in the day you could vis a VCR tape one and watch the other. You maybe didn't can watch both at the same time but you hit it right there the Monday night wars made you choose. WCW or the WWF. At the time you had to choose one or the other because think about that before that before that you just watch casually which you want it. But Vince McMahon as well as Eric Bischoff in that battle told you that hey you may like wrestling as long as a whole but you got to choose one of the other shoes us because we are the band of of of crazy performers and for WCW W. W. WWF was like. Hey you know what were the attitude era. We have changed so I think that right there. The line was drawn in the sand with that those Monday night. Awards of course EC W part of that as well now. We can't forget about them that even though it is about Monday night wars is also about e C. W as well a choose US look for your on syndicated television. TNN Back then choose us because we got some spot for your Friday nights. Michael you're hearing catch busted open.

There was too dangerous things in the match. One of them was the end. When medium took the bump off the ladder through the ladder bridge outside and Tude swatch her land and like her? She's got a lands on like one of the edges of the ladder. That doesn't give it all. It looks like she got snapped into and she's just dad but like she was fine afterwards. I mean it wasn't as bad as it looked but the drop kick for the latter to the face was so weird to me because sometimes in wrestling something clearly goes wrong. Two people plan to bump off something through a table but they missed the table. Okay something went wrong this person here and tends to give this guy brain buster here be lands on the wrong thing or whatever I mean. It's obvious when things go wrong. Okay and actually the brain buster on the ramp. That's what her Johnny Gargano this. An example of what I'm talking about like when you watch the drop kick to the face. I mean something went wrong but like nothing. Overtly went wrong. That was the spot. You try to do a springboard dropkick. We're not just talking.

"And I threw three super kicks and I thought they just slipped right off the guy well. If you go to my twitter at Bryan Alvarez I have I have posted a gallery of photos that were taken at the event and in the gallery of photos you can very very very clearly see that that I kicked Nick Gage right in the face three times. There was no slippage. I mean you could see my foot going into his gye is skin like I mean I kick that guy three times Jose could and it didn't work so the failure is on me and the reality is I is noted on twitter have to moves. I have a shop and I have a super kick and one of them does not appear to work anymore so I don't know what's next I don't know I don't know if I'm ever going to wrestle again. I have to seriously reevaluate everything. I took a a very vicious beating on Sunday. I've got another child on the way I'm forty four years old. Like what am I doing. I'm saying what am I doing so clearly not using your Jujitsu during matches. I got a great job here. I get to talk which are over the airwaves stall of you wonderful people out there. I get to do podcasts. Let's get to spend time with my child and relax and go to the gym. Do I need to be out there. Doing this probably not so. I'll think about it but that's the story I failed. I failed profoundly this weekend in a way that I've never failed before and yes if if you want to see it it's up at independent wrestling DOT TV American-run in nineteen videos upright now I there's there's footage of the finish. That's almost seventy thousand views right now for the footage of this finish. I don't know what's wrong with this world. Everyone just reveling in my failure in my pain but it's up there right now. If you want to go there and check it out as a bad day have you have you seen some of the critiques of your of Your match. I don't WanNa hear him. I I don't need listen to critiques right now. I know what went wrong. I don't need to hear a bunch of geeks telling me what we're I know I was in there. I know we'll win wrong. I don't want to hear about it. Go to the phones. You're on the air. What's up? Hey I have got enough failures this weekend what's going on. I'm sorry Ryan <hes> first of all. I hope you're having a great day. I hope you've got a massage and I hope you gotTA. Chiropractic looks like he's a grady bat on to- slam I the the swelling has gone down enough to go to the chiropractor or the <hes> masseuse but that will becoming and the witchdoctor I mean hey if I saw a a quick anecdote. I think it'd be Marseilles. Rocket <hes> one-sided independent show so I know what it's like to go through pain not like this you don't but I appreciate the I appreciate. The thoughts have been at hurt dude. I got stuff pile driven onto my head by just fought Nick Gage you kill kill fence or the other doing but their point there point <hes>. I just want to talk about this period that that I hear that after you and Dave and multiple talking about <hes>. I'm just curious as to why W._W._e.. Just doesn't go to their typical big angles <hes> as they've done in the past and when you look at has has boom periods <hes> you'll get like Johnson and edge see 'em Pumpkin and John Cena you know and it's just like one big inglewood's colleague a slow bills and it just collapses or not collapse but climaxes and a big you know just <hes> championship win where everybody's invested into the story Oreo alleged on that well I mean dude. I I WANNA thank you very much for the call lightening the mood a little bit but I mean you WanNa know why I mean that's exactly what I talked about. Ten minutes ago Vince showed up today and he asked for the entire top to bottom smackdown show to be rewritten like how do you build up anything when a guy comes in on a Tuesday and he wants the entire show rewritten from top to bottom. Do you know when they start working on. All of these shows like they're in the office. They start working on stuff on Thursday and you know they're they're doing stuff. Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday work in these crazy hours hours a coming on Tuesday. Dude goes rewrite everything I mean. That's why this is not the same Vince McMahon I listen. I'm not there where I don't know what's going on with Vince McMahon but I talked to people who were there. I talked to people who have been there and you can go online and read interviews with people who've I've been there and former writers and this is just not the same guy anymore. There's there's almost no long-term planning whatsoever inevitably and when you can't do long term planning you can't have these kinds of moments that's it. That's the story and I I don't know until he's gone forever going. They have things like that again. What what could we have? What can we have like? What what is the big angle that they could shoot? What dream match do do they have left? I can't think of anything I mean literally for Summer Slam. They're going back to the exact same match that they did for Wrestlemainia Linnea and I'm not even talking about last year's Wrestlemainia or two years ago or four years ago Summer Slam. They're doing the exact same thing that they did for Wrestlemainia the same two guys the same two angles leading to the exact same match. What do we have for Wrestlemainia this year anybody listener and stroman again <hes> listener in in in <hes> dramatic? What do we have for Wrestlemainia? That's like the big thing. I don't think there's going to be a boom period. I'm not expecting a boom period coming out of w we go into Fox. I could be wrong but I see I. I see I'm talking. Zero signs that we've got a boom period coming none. It'll it'll be interesting to see what they do do in who they bring back and they bring up around that time it really will do you bring up Shane Baseler do they. You know this Ronda Brock Lesser GonNa figure into the mix okay yes if he does you have that extra layer where again you can put some people in there with brock listener but you know is really is really really gonNa work as anybody really going to believe it. You know with Seth Ron's. There was some belief with Roman reigns. Maybe there's some belief but with anybody else like who is that monster so yeah you know and and the thing thing to bids one of the things I've learned is it's not like Vince was ever great with a lot of long term planning and stories and things he's like that anyway he'd get a wild hair up is ready changed things but he was also a lot more tuned in with certain particular characters that he had a we lost four and would be able to you know he would take great care of them even if it didn't work well all the time like a Roman reigns or something like that and that seems to be slipping way too because he's so distracted and we've got so many moving parts now and things like this changing and ideas changing. It's just it's very frustrating for a lot of the people there and and it's been frustrating as a viewer for the most part two. I didn't hate last night's raw as much as a lot of people did in fact I was actually I didn't intent quite contented with with a lot of it but I was surprised to see some of the reaction be so bad now a lot of that may have centered around the you know how much you enjoy the twenty four seven stuff and how much you enjoy seeing brock listener and seth rollins again you know because that seems to be weighing people down you know more but still was I mean it. Was this a Paul Heyman show. Is this what it's going to be you know I don't know it's just we'll have to kind of take one foot in front of the other one. When it comes to the shows does but like you said I don't see what's so great on the horizon without bringing people in from the outside and again Daniel go for breakfast outside and they've done nothing with any of them? I mean that's all that's not true. Bring me but they did do with Rhonda Rousey they did they do a great job there. They did a great job there and I wonder if again she chooses not to have a child and she decides to come back in the fall and you do something bringing down the line to help build up wrestlemainia because I mean if she's coming back. I you know if you can get her before the royal rumble. I don't think they wanNA wait that long. I think they're going to need federal back run rows. Would we give for WRESTLEMAINIA RUN VERSUS BECKY RUN CHARLOTTE Ron Ron Becky one on one run to Charlotte one on one that here's the thing with Rhonda Rhonda's not damaged goods damage. I mean it's like one thing you're right right. But do you know what stay as plants I don't know but he turned things around Dang accord but again no but I mean as far as dragging him in they do something with brock down the line or something when carrying about that maybe they will. They wouldn't care all ask anyone care about Daniel cormie verse Brock Listener Yeah but you're why would they be did the care about it the other way like I think a lot of people would love to see like Brooklyn or go to U._F._C. and face Daniel Korea for the U._F._C. title but like does anyone care about Daniel Cormie cormier coming to me for a match with Brock in mania. I don't think anybody listening to this show. Maybe not but I think the general public again. I think there's a way you can sell that. Absolutely Louis.

"Beams. Yes. And significantly better. The Bryan Alvarez's prompt significantly. I mean, there was a point. And maybe, you know, we're all prone to hyperbole. But like there was a moment in. I was like all this kind of feels like fucking that all that late night. Austin promo easy, w it was just fucking. I don't know, dude. I thought it was really good. It's so interesting because. I don't know if he ever said it publicly, but you know, they Cody and Dustin wanted to do that match. For years. And they they definitely did, you know? What they were tagging together as the star does gold us thing. Yup. And then they broke them up. And then maybe they did like my memory is fuzzy, but I seem to remember them doing like fell like hatha match, unlike raw. Yeah. And then that was this sounds, right. And you know, this is some that Vince McMahon is like nobody wants to see that match. And it's strange. That we finally do get to see that match. But there's thank God for the Cody promo because it's it's basically that match was cold that it's it's an he addresses that in so much of saying, oh, brother versus brother, the dream versus the nightmare. The the nightmares is the natural. It's very marketable. But then Cody puts it into context of I am looking to end the attitude era. Yeah. Now now now, I'm hooked, you know, so did you watch Dustin promo? No. So dozens promo came out last week the week before and it so then I went back and watched that that one while good and also, you know, providing some context like the Cody one was for Nath minutes, and it I I was like, oh, it's done. Like there was no part of me those like wait where we add here. Like how how much longer is? This does had a little head a little fat on it. But it's still very good. If. Had just pulled out there things that you just repeated where it was like why are you saying that twice? But but still very good. And also because that's the thing. It's like no one wants Vince says no one wants to see that match. It's like well isn't your job to make people wanna see that match? But did you? I mean, I just wanted to from your perspective m I like, am I giving it too much credit or was that a great promo? That was a great promo thought. It was a great promo. I loved the you know responding to the piss ants. Comment. I also appreciated. Maybe it was melted. Take on it that which which I completely agreed with and it was something that I felt in the early days of Lucia undergrounds, and then that show kinda shit the bed. But that it makes. The Cody promo the production of it the content of it makes WWE look so definitely past. Right. You know, that the way that it start even like did you did you watch? And this is you know. I'd be surprised if he did. But did you happen to watch Tessa Blanchard? Invades Gail Kim's husbands restaurant. No what I've seen that. Where you can find that on YouTube. This was to build whatever their impact pay per view match. But again, this was something that I think Meltzer hyped up and was like, you know, it felt like mid south eve. No, no, he said it felt like world class at the height of their creativity. Nineteen eighty-four. Okay. I was like, well, I'll take it again. I'll take take a Pete. And I you know, it was good. It was entertaining. I didn't think it was. Yeah. You know? Yeah. That fucking amazing. Right. But it was certainly different. It's definitely something. You don't see on WWE anymore. And is definitely something that when we get to see wrestlers outside of just the ring or the backstage of the same old fucking shit. Yeah. And it doesn't like, you know. It doesn't always need to be a fucking, home, invasion, or somebody's stalking. Somebody's wife or kids or they're setting the house on fire..

"But for the personalities that were were peripherally associated with professional wrestling, the podcasters, the writers, the analysts, the the video montage botch Amenia makers that they had an opportunity to, you know, interact with fans, and you know what more times than not. I've never had a conversation with mardi girl, but at that a lot of conversations with Dave Meltzer and or Bryan Alvarez or Wade Keller, or we teeing or someone else, you know that I have this opportunity to go to them and say, hey, let me talk to you about that subject there. And so I think it's really exciting that you know we were in a place where not only did we. A chance for wrestlers to be kind of given given an opportunity to to Lod what they do and put ten thousand people that all enjoy the same hobby together, which kind of makes you feel like you're less alone in this world. But also the fact that you know people then were really getting into the fact that they could meet and talk and gather together. And whenever you have a conflict of really smart and interesting people in a place, they're gonna tell really smart interesting stories, and they're at the same time also going to come up with new ideas about how to look at things. And so for me, it was like a whole weekend of just business meetings because the whole time I was talking to a creative people that were spurring the on. And when you're when you're a podcast, you talk into a microphone in your bedroom and you're never really sure is anyone out there listening. And when you can actually meet a person, shake their hand and talk to them about what they thought about a subject. It inspires an invigorates you. And so I feel that even the the energy that the wrestlers felt, I feel like other people that are in the wrestling industry on the peripheral edges like I am. It's exciting for us and..
