Over the course of the episode Sam and Al try to stop this from happening while encountering a crazed Terry Funk who's wife tries to make the moves on Sam. OH BOY!

Talk’n WCW #19: Raven

What about us? What about Talk'n WCW?! In this edition, Jenny, Tim and Greg turn their attention to a WCW star who burned bright but burned out soon after: from the Bowery, it's RAVEN! The gang takes a look at the ECW stalwart's brilliant 1998, a year that saw him capture the United States championship and engage in memorable feuds with a variety of fellow rising talents. We see a violent grudge match against a fierce Canadian foe, a wild championship brawl against one of WCW's most popular wrestlers, and a blow off match that illustrates Scott Levy's wrestling brilliance. So it is written. So it shall come to pass.
 
 
 
 

Pro Wrestling Love is back for more on the Place To Be Nation featuring Marty Sleeze (Superstar Sleeze on PWO & Twitter) and Mike (DaWho5 on PWO) breaking down the Top 25 Best Japanese Matches to take place between 2000-2009. This is the midway point of the list looking at #20-#16. The boys use Kensuke Sasaki vs Toshiaki Kawada, New Japan vs All Japan dream match as a case study in pro wrestling pride, Kawada as a chameleon, the difference between “how” vs “why” in wrestling and the very famous Kobashi vs Sasaki Dome match that didn’t make either of our lists, but was worthy of discussion. Wikipedia says Hiro Saito invented the Senton, but this seems off to Mike & Marty. So Pro Wrestling Lovers who invented the Senton? Let us know! FUJITA JR HAYATO Makes his Pro Wrestling Love debut in all his reigning glory! Marty tells his story or how he met Stan Hansen. Pro Wrestling Love ends on a high note of the raucous mayhem of Nagata vs Murakami! If you have not seen this match, drop what you are doing and watch it now! Click think, download and enjoy…let us know what you think! We love to hear!

ChRAWnology #7

On this episode of ChRAWnology the Wrestlemania 9 build heats up as Bret Hart defends the title against "a Headshrinker," Rob Bartlett impersonates Elvis, and Dave learns who PJ Walker is. Only one of those things has anything to do with Wrestlemania 9 but we're kind of grasping at straws here.

In episode 17 of The Special Relations Calum McDougall, Rory McNamara and Ben Locke are back with the usual mix of seriousness and nonsense.

In this episode the boys discuss all things Wrestlemania including why this years edition is not grabbing their attention as well as the diminishing returns of previous modern Manias.  They also discuss the wrestling rumour mill and use the Andrade/Charlotte situation to help make sense of things.

In the 2nd part of the show we carry on our interview series where we review Chris Jerichos interview with Stephanie McMahon talking about what worked and theorizing about what didnt and why it stopped after 2 editions, we then go back 3 years and watch one of her best matches featuring Steph, HHH, Kurt Angle and Rhonda Rousey.  We finish with another round of Talk Your Way Out Of This One.

 

Come for the concept but stay for the tough semi, it's the Special Relations.

THE POWERR IS BACK! Scott & the Doctor are excited to recap the first new episode of Powerr in over a year on the newest episode of the SS. They discuss Velvet Sky, Strictly Business, a new #1 contender for the TV Title and dissension in the Tag Team Champions. So sit back with your kettle and enjoy the newest episode of the Saturday Special!
