We're firmly in the 90's now as we take our first look at Joshi, and what a first look! Check this one out as Jordan gives his thoughts on this all action Dream Rush rager!

A bit of a departure for this week's episode (not from the Body Dump unfortunately, we're back again), but we're deviating from our GOAT list just because I wanted Jordan to watch a couple of my favorites.  And what are those? Stan Hansen vs Terry Funk 84 and the Rock N Roll Express vs the Midnights from Wrestlewar 90! This is a cool episode, first of all because these matches rock but also because I think for the first time I'm able to get a sense of what Jordan is attracted to in a match.

We're back at the Body Dump for this episode as we jump the tracks to check out All Japan for the first time (spoiler alert: it won't be the last!) and Jordan gets a look at the more straight-laced, sports-based type wrestling than what we've seen so far.  We also get the long-awaited origin story of the name Body Dump!

Drew and Jordan head towards the 90s as they watch this heavy hitter from the NWA.  They get our first look at Ric Flair, and of course Jordan thinks its cool that Steamboat comes out with his wife and Little Dragon. They also tell a famous story from hardcore's past as well as mourn the loss of a Nazi-stomping legend.

Our first venture into the World Wrestling Federation is a good one.  Hear what Jordan thinks about this Wrestlemania classic, and comments on the production, presentation, familiarity etc of the WWF.  We also get into some Beanie Baby discussion, and Jordan lets us know his thoughts on Saint Vitus! Another fun show.

No dilly dally for this one, we get right into this legendary match from the Showboat! Listen as Jordan navigates through a different style than we've seen before, with a largely ground-based affair between Hennig and Bock.  Again, it's really cool to hear what he picks up on and how he interprets things. Check it out!

Our best episode yet! The boys are back in Drew's living room for this stone cold classic I Quit cage match Magnum vs Tully baby! A musical challenge is presented to Jordan in the form of Born Too Late by Saint Vitus. As far as the match itself, it's a very fascinating listen to hear Jordan's responses and curiosity as to the brutality in the ring and has some truly eye-opening insights.  Also, Jordan gets distracted by Boogie Woogie Man Jimmy Valiant!

On this episode, there's a change of scenery as the boys leave the comfort of home to the spooky corridors of the Body Dump! Don't worry, there's plenty of mechanical sounds and machine noises to distract from the truly epic and famous New Japan 10-man Gauntlet match! Listen to Jordan's fascination with Yatsu and hear him try to figure out the rules in a very fun episode!
