Wrasslin Podcasts

There's a ton of them, it's basically how I got back into Wrestling. Thought I'd share a few and people could throw in their own suggestions.

1- Attitude Era Podcast: Three dudes from the UK review every PPV from the Attitude era. Two have seen them before, one hasn't. Pretty fun, and an interesting perspective. The main host guy loves his own voice and might turn some people off, but I think it's great.

2- Cheap Heat: Grantland's David Shoemaker aka The Masked Man and Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg mostly talk about RAW and the WWE. Shoemaker is awesome, and Rosenberg is well connected.

3- Straight Shoot: Also a youtube show. Aubrey Sitterson, a former WWE.com staffer and Marvel Comics editor with a terrifying amount of enthusiasm and his guests recap RAW. Aubrey is pretty much a mark, but a super smart one who does a great job of seeing the bigger picture in a lot of the booking.

4- Have A Nice Day: Mumbling English guy talks to his friends and internet comics people about wrestling, mostly their experience watching as a kid. I don't have much time for the host, but some of the guests are interesting.

Yours?

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

Colt Cabana has a good show depending on the guest.

We Watch Wrestling. Two long time fans(one former WWE writer) and their friend who started watching 'Mania last year. They are not WWE heavy and talk about current indy stuff, old Japan stuff

Wrestling Compadres on the Nerdist Network. I've only listened to one of them so far but it was good. They have some connection to Booker T.

The WWE Road to Wrestlemania. Hosted by Renee Young has been fun and usually clocks in under an hour.

As for the above mentioned, Cheap Heat is really good, as is Austin, Jericho and JR.

Edit-The Jericho 2 part episode with Chavo was incredible.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

I tapped out on the Wrestlemania podcast during the Goldie/Cody episode. Renee would not stop talking/asking about Dusty when Dustin and Cody did everything but scream "**** DUSTY!!!!" I turned it off when Renee started to call Dusty and haven't listened since. It was downright cringe inducing.

I enjoy Jim Cornette's podcast in addition to all the top level names. The only annoying thing about subscribing via iTunes is that they put it in a package with a bunch of other shows no one cares about.

This was easily the low point in the 8 episodes so far and it happened in episode 2.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

Review-a-wai off the fight network is a really good wrestling podcast featuring John Pollock and Wai Ting. They recap the current product every week (Raw + TNA with a side of SD on occasion) and then throw in random old event reviews (both good and hilariously terrible) and interviews. The two of them do a pretty good job of being level headed about how the product is. It's not something where they just love everything or **** on it all.

The archive of some old events can be found here: http://lawradio.proboards.com/thread...ew-wai-archive

The archive of Review-a-Raw's can be found here:
http://lawradio.proboards.com/thread...ew-raw-archive


It's the only wrestling podcast I listen to.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

Everything from MLW Radio is pretty good and if you are really into Wrestling podcasts, the 15$ per year for additional content is a pretty good bargain. Konnan is co-hosting together with one (and sometimes two) former members of WWE creative plus/minus some guests. The Jim Cornette podcast also is part of MLW.

Otherwise I'll regularly listen to the Austin, J2Y and Ross podcasts.

Most memorable episode during the past few weeks was Piper on the Austin podcast - I am still trying to figure out if it was overall cool, funny, pathetic or sad...

Osw review vodcast is my favorite. Three Irish guys started at the beginning of the hulkamania era and went through every ppv up through summerslam 92. They've done some other things as well. I think they're quite funny. Things didn't get really good until like 89 RR. One of them is a huge mark for Rugged Ronnie Garvin. Random **** like that. Makes me laugh every time. Oswreview.com and all the videos are on Vimeo. A good place to start to see if you like it would be their WM5 ep.

Not really a podcast but Bruce Blitz on YouTube is really good and really entertaining. I watch his weekly Raw Reviews and PPV Preview and Review.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

Gonna have to check the Attitude Era podcast out. Hope I'm not letdown.

Also wanna give a big +1 to Cheap Heat. Rosenberg and the Masked Man work very well together and it makes for an extremely smooth, entertaining, knowledgeable (and at times smarky/marky) cast.

Confirmed. Parts 2 and 4 are on unleashed. 1 and 3 are just on the regular show.

Also the regular show has an interview with Vader up that I am excited to hear

Ross Report with Michelle Beedle was a great listen. I could listen to Beeds talk all day.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

Bump as another thread got started and this one has all the infos.

To amend my original post- I dropped Straight Shoot because I got pretty sick of Audrey's stuck in the mud ass views on heel/face dynamics (which is basically "if the WWE tells you somebody is a heel it's totally cool if faces beat on them regardless if they're women or old men). If you're not a hypersensypoo SJW like me it's probably still good tho.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

A podcast that was surprisingly good was Batista on Jericho's, which I only listened to because I heard a good excerpt. It had that "old friends that haven't talked in a long time just being honest" feel with some good stories, like Austin's podcast with Bret Hart which also was better than I thought it would be.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

Rosenberg, who I really enjoy, was on Austin's podcast and I listened the first time.

Ugh. So much monologuing and shilling. He's got good instincts as an interviewer, but overall the podcast is really hard to take.
