On this, the fourth episode of season five, your boys are checking out yet another new promotion! This time, we're heading down the street to Boyle Heights, where we hear there is some kind of underground fighting ring organized by a villainous rich guy with an affinity for violence and big keys. 

It's Aztec Warfare 1 from the ninth episode of the first season of Lucha Underground. Come for the lucha, stay for Joaquin's extended appetizer sampler metaphor. 

And joining us in the lab once again is long-time friend of the podcast Ana Espinoza! (@Espinoza_Ana)

S5E3: Kurt Angle vs Shane McMahon w/Olly Moss

When you think about car-crash matches that happened during the King of the Ring, the first that comes to mind is probably the classic Hell in a Cell match from 1998. But there is another, almost equally cringe-inducing brawl that took place during the tournament-focused pay-per-view. And wouldn't you know it, it features a gold medalist fighting the boss' son. 

This week we're talking Kurt Angle versus Shane McMahon in a outrageous street fight. Yes, it's the match with the glass. There will be blood.

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)
