January 23rd, 2020

This week is the rest of our look back at 2019

ps. We recorded this episode before he won the Progress title! But we knew he was going to be big anyway!

SATL Watch Along - Hollywood Hogan v The Rock

October 24th, 2019

This week Rob and Ethan watch the infamous Hollywood Hogan v The Rock at WrestleMania 18 

 

Surprising we've only seen bits of this match before so it was great to watch it all the way through. 

The crowd reaction to this match is amazing and is one of the great examples of an organic double turn. Hogan went into this match the heel but left a hero. So much so legend has it he flew from Toronto to Florida and back to pick up his famous Red and Yellow ring gear for the night after on Raw, all on Vince McMahons dime!

Episode 29 - G1/Fight For The Fallen/Extreme Rules

July 18th, 2019

This week all three of us are back! 

 

Tom talks us through the NJPW G1 Climax so far. 

 

We look back at Fight for the Fallen and talk about what a pleasant surprise Extreme Rules was. 

 

Plus we run Ethan through the minefield that is mid 90's early 2000's films that may or not have starred Christina Aguilera!! 

 

And how far is too far when it comes to giving wrestlers stick while at shows and do you deserve a clip for stepping out of line?!
