On episode 21 of The Special Relations join Calum McDougal, Rory McNamara and Ben Locke as they return from an enforced summer break to talk for a couple of hours with some occasional wrestling chat thrown in.
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...!
On episode 20 of the Special Relations join Calum McDougall, Rory McNamara and Ben Locke as they battle through technical and British Internet Problems to bring you another fine show for your listening entertainment.
On the show we catch up on our personal lives and then have a discussion about the European Championship tournament that is currently taking place. When we get round to talking about wrestling we finally have a conversation about Charlotte Flair(just for a change!) as well as talking about the return of fans and some of the rumoured events that are making a return.
In the second part of the show we carry on with our interview/review series by talking about the recent interview between Renee Paquette and Tommy End/Aleister Black. We then watch a match from 2018 that is one of Black's best. We wrap up with talk your way out of this one which contains a threat to one of Scotland's finest music exports.
All this and so much more whilst the lads are trying to watch the France-Portugal game only on the Special Relations!
On episode n-n-n-n-nineteen of The Special Relations join Calum McDougall, Rory McNamara and Ben Locke as they try to combine buffoonery with the odd serious comment. On this episode the boys each bring a topic to the table to discuss. This includes the current storyline direction for Roman Reigns and The Usos, nationalism in wrestling and how that relates to one Cody Rhodes and talking about our favoUrite bad matches! In the second part we carry on our interview series by reviewing Legends with JBL with Jimmy Hart, an interview that was a lot better than you would think. The boys (well 2 of them) then go back to 2004 and watch JBL's bloody war with Eddie Guerrero.
Come for some lively debate but stay for the pre Euro 2020 tournament smack talk, it's the Special Relations!"
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.
