On episode 24 of The Special Relations join Calum McDougall, Ben Locke and Rory McNamara as they celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the podcast!
On the show Ben gets a few things off his chest about current day WWE and how it relates to him as a fan, this allows Calum and Rory to do the same. The ten minute rule returns where Calum tries to make this year's Survivor Series a bit more interesting (spoiler: it nearly works).
In the second part of the show we review the interview that took place between Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels for the greatest rivalries set. As well as talking all things Montreal, Rory puts forward a theory that Shawn knew a lot more about the 95-97 period than he was letting on. We wrap things up by going back to March 1991 and watching a hidden gem from the Hart Foundation and The Rockers whilst reminiscing about the two years of the show!
Come for the concept but stay for the rants and (for one month only) mostly serious debate, it's the Special Relations!

In the second part of the show we deal with some breaking newz~! as the story about ROH suspending activities in 2022 breaks whilst we are on the air. We then go into our interview review which deals with the episode of Dark Side Of The Ring focusing on the Owen Hart tragedy. As well as giving our thoughts on the programme, we reminisce about Owen as well as watching one of his classic matches from 1997.
Come for the concept but stay for some serious Bronte sister chatter, it's The Special Relations.

After catching up on our personal lives as well as some sporting highlights of the summer, the boys reminisce about some of the wrestling snows they were 'lucky' enough to have attended. They then talk all about the weekend that just took place including the return of CM Punk (spoiler: even Rory liked it), an all-too-long-and-save-a-couple of-returns-fairly-forgettable Summerslam and WALTER v Dragunov from Takeover.
In the 2nd part of the show the Interview Review returns and we get to talk all about everyone's favourite wine raconteur Kevin Nash and his recent appearance on the Smoking Skull Sessions. We then live watch a match that may be the most important wrestling match in the last 25 years.
All this and so much more (including plenty of C-Bombs early on!) with The Special Relations!
**The Special Relations Trio will return with a brand new episode in August!"
On Sunday March 29th 2020 Calum, Ben and Rory broadcast a special live edition of the Special Relations to all four corners of the globe. If you weren't at one of those corners, or you just want to relive it all over again(and why wouldn't you?) join the chaps as they live watch the 22nd September 1997 edition of Monday Night RAW, spend far too long talking about King Of The Ring 1995, and maybe get visited by one or two guests...!
