So set sail at Full Sail for some top tier analysis and complete nonsense because We Are PTB...NXT!

Wrestling’s Chicken Salad #4

In this episode the boys travel back 21 years to WCW Fall Brawl 99! In this episode we try and make some sense of what was going on behind of scenes which contributed to some of the worst wrestling you will ever see. We also wonder what the ICP had done to earn a spot on this show, wonder what Shawn had been drinking when he watched the cruiserweight title match, a bad night for the Revolution stable, where do Harlem Heat rank in the all time tag team list and do we trust Hulk Hogan, Sting or Lex Luger. There may also be a surprise appearance or two! All this and so much more in episode 4 of Wrestling's Chicken Salad!

With the debut episode of Primetime Live coming this Tuesday, Scott & the Doctor preview the show by discussing what the United Wrestling Network is, some of their stars, and the card for this Tuesday's debut episode. They talk Aldis vs. Bennett, Kamille and what looks like the best of the California Indy scene. So sit back and be prepared for a new era of PPV with this week's episode of the SS!

Row 1, Seat 1 #52: Derek Neal

Ben welcomes Southeastern independent wrestling veteran Derek Neal to the podcast this week! @DerekNeal91 discusses what it's like to be a veteran of the independent scene for over 15 years, including working Kentucky and Tennessee, the Nashville scene, and finally his current run in @NewSouthPW, where he is the current holder of the largest belt in professional wrestling. A fun show so check it out!

In this episode of the Place to Be Podcast, Justin, Scott and Tim Slomka are drinking some green beer and partying it up by digging into the 3/15/91 Madison Square Garden house show!

The crew discuss the always wonderful Herb Kunze Tidbits of the Week, the WCW/New Japan Supershow, a hot opener with a great finish, a fun hoss battle between British Bulldog and Warlord, the arrival of Paul Bearer, a sneaky fun Tag Team Title match, Virgil continuing to harass Ted DiBiase, Hulk Hogan and Sgt. Slaughter rolling to WrestleMania and more, including end of show awards!

So fire up this action-packed episode and join Scott, Justin & Tim as it’s time for another edition of the PTB Podcast!

Rory McNamara is back to root around the attic for the very best (and today, almost certainly the very worst!) the Home Video Classics section of the WWE Network has to offer. Rory has the pick again today and he is graciously sharing his air miles with Calum McDougall for a look at 'World Tour 89/90'! They might not get much of a suntan, but they do get treated to TWO Jimy Snuka matches...and in turn they treat you to a surfeit of Z-List British celebrities! How many have YOU been unfortunate enough to have heard of?...

So dust off your VCR, pop in the tape, reset the timer to 0000 and - best you can - enjoy! (And apologies for some mic choppiness at around the 20 minute mark!)
