S5E2: Buddy Rogers vs Pat O'Connor w/Maffew Gregg

Screen Shot 2018-08-16 at 2.26.32 PM.png

It's the match of the century, folks, and they're hanging from the rafters here in Comiskey park! The fans purchased their entire seat, but with drama like this they'll only need the edge. It's 'Nature Boy' Buddy Rogers vs NWA World Heavyweight Champion Pat O'Connor in a two-out-of-three falls contest.

From all the way back in 1961, you'll be shocked at how modern this bout feels - even if the high spots are a botched dropkick and a wicked twisting arm bar.

Running in all the way from across the pond to help your boys break down this mat classic is creator of Botchamania and all-around good wrestle guy Maffew Gregg! (@Maffewgregg)

S5E1: Velveteen Dream vs Aleister Black w/Ren Harris

Say my name. No, not Heisenberg. Velveteen Dream. 

For the first episode of season 5, the gang has gathered together once again, this time to break down Velveteen Dream vs Aleister Black from NXT TakeOver: WarGames (see how many times you can spot the second ring).

There are no titles on the line and there will be no rematches. This is simply the story of one tall Coachella attendee with washboard abs in a fight to gain the attention and perhaps even the respect of a baby-faced vampire man.

Joining your boys to kick of this season's informal research project with zero methodology is actress & writer Ren Harris! (@renharris_)

On this off-season episode, Joaquin, Chuck, Producer Tom and Joaquin's dog Artoo discuss potential wrestling trades and answer some hard questions, like: Which wrestlers would benefit from a change of scenery and who could you swap them with for equivalent value? Could Roman hang in New Japan? What has CM Punk been up to these last few years? Who is Christopher Daniels?

Then, Producer Tom grabs his elegant skinny microphone and challenges Joaquin and Chuck to face off head-to-head in the very first Everybody's Got a Price Ha Ha E-bay Game!
