Episode Date
Episode 133: Rock Bottom 1998
02:36:48

We're one month removed from perhaps the best Russo story line, Survivor Series 1998, and the Rock is no longer the "#2 babyface" he is clearly the top heel and thus this entire PPV is named after him. Join Bruce and Conrad as they examine all of the happenings in the WWF in December 1998!

Episode 131: Christian
03:12:10

Christian a sure-fire Hall of Famer with a story unlike any other Superstar in WWE history. Today Bruce takes us back to the beginning of his wrestling career all the way through today. From paying for his training to the legacy he has left and everything in between. Of course Christian's story is one of highs and lows. Bruce and Conrad examine his on-screen debut, the pairing with the Brood, whether or not that faction ended too quickly, what helped make his pairing with Edge, what writer had the most influence on his career as a tag wrestler, what PPV "made" their team, the infamous TLC matches people still talk about to this day, and of course the break up. How did they decide who was going to be the "good guy" in that story line? What did Vince see in Christian at that time? Did Vince really want Christian to cut his hair? Why didn't it happen? What's the rumor and innuendo about the blue dot? Of course the temper tantrums, the title runs, and the departure from WWE must be addressed. How did Vince react to Christian leaving? Did the TNA run help him upon his return? Why did Dixie Carter choose him to return to TNA in 2012 as a special deal with WWE over all other contracted WWE talent? What would Christian's career look like if there was never an Edge character? All of this and much more for our podcast peeps as we examine the life and times of Christian in the WWE!

Episode 130: Survivor Series 1993
02:15:11

To say the fall of October 1993 was a tough time for the WWF is an understatement. Vince McMahon and Titan Sports are going to be facing serious charges from the the Federal Government where they would face millions in fines and perhaps lose Titan Towers (and everything in it!). Hulk Hogan is gone so they get Randy Savage back in the ring but before they do, Savage goes on JR's radio show and calls out Hulk Hogan for lying on the Arsenio Hall Show. Vince has decided to shift gears to a different type of main event attraction to feature Bret Hart and his feud with Jerry Lawler is the hottest in the company... and then Lawler got arrested. Despite business being down, they sold out the Boston Gardens in record time. How? Bruce explains a new strategy that worked to move tickets and how they had to pivot away from Lawler in the main event. Why was Shawn chosen? Who were the Knights supposed to be? How were the other Hart brothers to work with? What was the original plan before it was Bret-Owen? Plus we discuss sidebars about Ludvig Borga, Ray Combs, and of course the creation of Reo Rodgers. Don't miss the show Bruce has wanted to cover since we started the podcast, Survivor Series 1993!

Bruce discusses the Bulldogs departure, the way Arn and Tully reacted to their first WWF Pay Per View, whether or not Savage had an issue with Hogan coming out last, and so much more! Plus the guys discuss Vince's foray into promoting boxing Pay Per Views, what Vince did for the guys for Thanksgiving, why Richfield got so many big shows, and so much more!

Episode 128: Survivor Series 1998
02:26:58

We are one year removed from the Montreal Screwjob and the tide has turned in the Monday Night War--the WWF is near clearly in the lead with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin feuding with "Mr. McMahon." But the story of Survivor Series 1998 is about to further the lead that the WWF has when they crown their "next big thing" champion. The Rock became "the guy" at Survivor Series '98 but HOW they got there was the most masterful part of the story. Vince Russo has said this was the best thing he ever wrote in wrestling and most agree. The story of Mankind and Vince McMahon, weaving in Shane McMahon and the Rock for weeks before the big reveal... the Rock is the Chairman's hand picked Champion. The stage was set for WrestleMania 15 and what would become the biggest trilogy in the history of professional wrestling. Don't miss the incredible story that made the Rock one of the youngest WWE Champions ever as Bruce and Conrad discuss Survivor Series 1998!

Episode 127: William Regal
03:03:26

Nobody has a story like William Regal! Bruce and Conrad cover his start in the business at just 16 years old, touring Europe, a surprise tryout with the WWF nobody talks about, who gave him a tip on how to get hired in WCW, who brought him in, why he left, who he called in the WWF to come in, what happened in the very first meeting, the illness that nearly cost him his life, his addiction, the rocky start with the company, the silly "Man" gimmick, rehab, the release, the match that got everyone talking again, the idea for the Commissioner, his title runs, his partnership with Tajiri, the pairing with Eugene, the parasite, his notable matches, winning King of the Ring, the failed drug test, his legacy, and everything in between that made William Regal one of the most fascinating stories in the history of professional wrestling!

Episode 126: Daniel Puder & the Hardcore Title
03:06:16

Take a look into Tough Enough as Bruce discusses the judges, the contestants, and how the decision to bring it to SmackDown upset the veterans. Of course Bruce has an opinion on how the "incident" with Angle took place as well. Why did Puder win? Once he did, how did the veterans treat him? What really happened at the Royal Rumble? Why didn't they ever do anything with him and Angle? What is their relationship like now? We discuss OVW, the letter he got by "accident" and then of course we break down why it didn't last, the true details of the $1M contract, and take your questions.


Then we continue our doubleheader with a complete breakdown of the Hardcore Title. Who had the idea? Why was it done? Who benefited the most? We exam some of the more memorable moments with the title, the guys who helped make it matter, and the times where it all just became hard to follow. From Mick Foley to Crash Holly to Rob Van Dam, we cover all things Hardcore Title in a very unique Something to Wrestle!

Episode 123: Rikishi
01:54:54

We knew him by many names before we were introduced to "Rikishi" and Bruce touches on everything from the Samoan Swat Team to the Sultan as we examine the career of Solofa Fatu Jr! You'll hear about everything from the inspiration behind the look, who was enamored with his finisher, how Too Cool came to by, and ultimately why it ended. Bruce also reminds everyone about the "bump" nobody talks about and perhaps the only "sawdust moment" in the history of wrestling. And of course you'll find out why, "I did it... for the Rock."

Episode 122: Carlito
02:06:03

This week we spit in the face of people who don't want to be cool! Carlos Colon is a legend in the wrestling business so it's a no brainer to get his son in the WWE and push him to the moon right? But why didn't it last? What went wrong? What was the word on him coming out of developmental? Who saw something in him on the main roster? We discuss his debut, the US title run, the draft, the IC title run, the WrestleMania moment with Piper and Austin, working against Hogan and Michaels, the infamous promo Ric Flair cut on him, the "stabbing" angle with Cena, whether or not that should have been done, when he asked for his release and why, how Vince managed to convince him to stay, and then ultimately how it all came to an end for a guy who beat John Cena for the US title on his first night on TV.

Bruce and Conrad discuss Ric Flair leaving the WWE, Freddie Prinze, Jr. coming in as a writer, the Mike Adamle experiment, the "independent contractor" lawsuit and debate, Ventura wanting Vince to back him for the Presidency, CM Punk losing the World Title on this PPV without ever even being in the ring, why that happened, why the business was down, Vince sending out feelers for a "WWE Network" (in 2008!), whatever happened to Manu, a young Cody Rhodes, who is to blame for the Championship Scramble concept, why it didn't work, a hilarious Johnny Ace story, the on-again off-again Foley-McMahon relationship, Coach leaving, the mass layoffs in 2008, and of course the best feud no one talks about: Jericho-Michaels.

Episode 113: SummerSlam 1997
02:26:10

1997 was one of the most important years in WWF history. We will examine the story lines like the USA-Canada angle of course but the real story is what is actually happening within the company. The WWF has greater attendance but ratings and PPV buys are down. We're less than two months away from Vince McMahon coming to Bret to tell him, "I can't afford your contract." We know that the following month, Vince "found the money." But how? We examine what changes the company made to cut costs and raise revenues, some that fans wouldn't have ever even noticed. Of course at the end of this show, Bret would become champion. If he hadn't, would the "screwjob" have ever happened three months later? Why did Vince still go with Bret as champion here? What were people saying about Shawn's knee? What happened before, during, and after Owen piledrove Austin? Of course we examine the love heaped on Whitman for changing the tax situation in New Jersey for the WWF and the silly million dollar contest with calling fans live on the air. Join us on a "State of the WWF" for the Summer of 1997!

Episode 112: Vengeance 2003
02:18:46

This is a sleeper episode! Bruce and Conrad discuss the brand split and how it allowed guys to be featured who may not normally have a chance to do so, why the US Title was created, the rumor and innuendo surrounding Zack Gowen, the infamous HBO interview where Vince got frustrated discussing deaths in wrestling, why Hogan left, the original plan for Hogan and what the backup plan was, Chris Bell's brief run backstage, Billy Kidman being the envy of the locker room, why Terry Taylor was out (again), the Sable-Stephanie brawls backstage, the hilarious indecent proposal angle with Noble, why Ultimo Dragon didn't work out, why Crash Holly was let go, why Brother Love was brought back, how Vince got busted open, and why the title was switched at this show! This is another "State of the WWE" in 2003 episode--don't miss it!

02:40:26

What were the original plans for the Invasion angle? When did they change? Why did they change? What missteps were made? Was McMahon impatient? The "dream" angle became a nightmare, but why?

Epsisode 110: Muhammad Hassan
02:02:13

Anti-American "gimmicks" have been done in wrestling for decades but Muhammad Hassan is the only character to ever be banned from television in the WWE. Join Bruce and Conrad as they examine the "how" and "why" of one of the most controversial characters in wrestling history. Who had this idea originally? How was it different than what had been done before? How did they choose who would portray the character? What were the booking plans before the incident? How did the man behind the character handle the success? What REALLY happened with him in "Wrestler's Court" and what was the verdict? What were the choices considered once the incident was already taped but had not yet aired? How did Vince react to the negative mainstream coverage of the angle? Did the WWE ruin a guy's career with one bad decision? The "what if" of this character and a single decision could have changed everything. And of course the guys get it over whether or not they should have done the character in the first place. Enjoy two hours and no one is going to agree about, the story of Muhammad Hassan!

We're struttin' and cuttin' this week on Something to Wrestle as we do three hours on Brutus the f'n Barber Beefcake! That's #BTFBB for short! We discuss who came up with the name Brutus Beefcake, the original gimmick, how it became a barber, whose idea that was, how it was received, who helped Brutus see how to get it over, why he never won the IC title in 88, why he was chosen to be by Hogan's side in 89 vs. Zeus/Savage, what the plans were at SummerSlam 90, all about the accident and the recovery, the run-in experiment, the return in 93, why he left, his legacy, whether or not he's a Hall of Famer, and much more!

Episode 107: Sable
03:12:53

The Sable story is unlike any other. There's an old saying about keeping your wife away from the business but Marc Mero didn't listen. He brought her to meet Vince McMahon in 1996 and nothing was ever the same. Perhaps no one could have predicted the star she would become when she debuted at WrestleMania 12 with Hunter Hearst Helmsley. We can't help but cover the story of Marc Mero's push, IC run, and the horrible timing of his ACL injury. But that ACL injury presented an opportunity for Rena Mero to become the biggest female star in the company. What night does Bruce think "made" Sable in 1997? Fast forward a year later and she's making her debut as a wrestler at WrestleMania! Who has their first ever match at WrestleMania? SABLE! Of course that decision would come back to haunt the WWF when Sable sued them a year later. We discuss the way the "boys" treated Sable, her relationship with the other ladies (specifically Luna and Jackie), the heat that Mero took for his wife's push, whether or not it hurt Marc to take her powerbomb, the way the first Playboy deal came together, the controversial TSN appearance, the second offer from Playboy and how it changed everything, Sable asking for her release the first time, her demand to stop wrestling, her refusal to drop the belt, the unbelievable handwritten note, the conditional terms that the company granted for their release, her lawsuit in great detail, her appearance on Nitro and how it complicated things, the root of the lawsuit and why Vince didn't back down, a guess as to how it was settled, how Rena came back, why Mero did not, her relationship with Brock, the silliness of Vince and Sable, the crazy angles involving Linda and Stephanie, and how the relationship ended a second time. We also examine the many times Meltzer "buried" Sable, what Sable said no one wanted to "boo," which Vince was responsible for her initial push, who really made room for her to be the top lady in the business, her legacy, why she isn't featured more in the WWE packages today, and whether or not she deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.

Episode 106: Bad Blood 2003
02:06:59

Business was down for the WWE in 2003 compared to 2002, but why? Bruce Prichard and Conrad Thompson discuss "the State of the WWE" for two hours this week and it's based around Bad Blood 2003, which exceeded expectations. Was it the Hell in a Cell that was responsible for the bump in business? Was it the return of Mick Foley? The show also featuring a burping contest, a poontang pie eating contest, and a singing contest -- who booked this?! Nobody was asking that for Flair-Michaels, a full five years before the famous retirement match. You'll also hear details about the beginning of Evolution, how Vince got Christian to cut his hair, why Rocky Johnson didn't last in developmental, why Sahadi left, why Jamal left, how Sable and Mero were doing, Nowinski's career, the spot with Steiner that everyone talks about on this show, how Test went into business for himself, the rib that McMahon played during this show, what Goldberg veto'ed in his match with Jericho, and what this show led two just two weeks later. On the exact 15 year anniversary of this show, don't miss another "sleeper episode" filled with hours about a very interesting time for a company in transition, it's all about the WWE in 2003!

Episode 105: King of the Ring 1993
02:20:55

The Summer of 1993 might be one of the most interesting times in the history of the WWF. With the Federal investigation looming, Vince McMahon steps down as President of Titan Sports after 12 years in the role, Tom Cole's story and the "ring boy scandal" continues to twist in the media, Hulk Hogan is working with NJPW but he's the WWF Champion and he wants to leave to do TV full time, Bret Hart feels like his opportunity to be the top guy was taken from him by a "half-in" Hogan, Yokozuna is the monster heel Vince loves, and somebody needs him at SummerSlam. But wasn't Hart-Hogan the plan at SummerSlam? What subtle hints were dropped on this broadcast and what "out" did Vince leave himself with the booking? Of course Bruce discusses the incredible performance by Bret Hart, a rusty Mr. Perfect who doesn't look rusty at all, a hot angle with Lawler to finish the show. the silly photographer outfit, and the weird transitional period within the company where stars from the "golden era" like Hacksaw Duggan are still in the company when guys like Razor, Diesel, and Shawn are coming into their own. And oh yeah, the guys discuss that "European tour" that got them into the worst fight in show history back on the WrestleMania IX episode.

Episode 104: Bob Holly
03:45:31

You won't believe what Bob Holly thought of working for Jerry Jarrett in Memphis, or maybe you will, but his story doesn't stop there. Nobody has a story like Bob Holly. From quitting his job to wrestle to quitting wrestling to get a job and back again, he got his big break out of nowhere and felt like he was going nowhere as "Thurman 'Sparky' Plugg" for Vince McMahon. Bruce discusses Bob's claims of poor pay from the company in 1994, dropped Thurman for Bob, the real life racing situation that wasn't just a gimmick, his brief IC situation with Jarrett, why the Waltman tag title win happened, his run-ins with the Kliq, the JOB Squad, the Hardcore Championship, Crash, BB, Molly, Kurt Angle breaking his arm, Brock Lesnar breaking his neck, when and how the Tough Enough situation happened, the fall out from that both good and bad, being recruited by Eric Bischoff, the huge gash on his back on ECW TV, the rumored fight with Rene Dupree, standing up to Vince, the pill rumor involving Ken Anderson, his heat with Cody, and his legacy in the business! I GOT AN IDEAL! Why don't you listen to over three hours of Hardcore Holly!

"I LOOOOOOOOOVE YOOOOOOOOU!" made Bruce Prichard a television star for the WWF as "Brother Love" back in 1988. But how did a 25-year-old kid working behind the scenes suddenly become a television character? Bruce tells the full story of the Brother Love character, who loved the idea, who hated the idea, and how it was never supposed to be him portraying the character. How did Bruce land the job? How did they "disguise" Bruce originally? How did the make up, the white suit, and the red shirt come to be? What was the process for creating the Brother Love Show set and format? Plus Bruce discusses the strategy for airing it on Wrestling Challenge before Superstars, his memories of being on NBC, the incredible story where he wound up "in the main event" against Hulk Hogan, who had heat with the character, a hilarious Andre story, and much more from the "golden era" of the WWF! Conrad also asks Bruce about all of the returns of Brother Love including WrestleMania 17!

03:12:15

From an untrained enhancement talent to the main event at Madison Square Garden against Hulk Hogan in under three years, nobody has a story like Ray Traylor! Bruce and Conrad briefly touch on the Big Bubba Rogers days before breaking down how Boss Man got his big break in the business and how the gimmick came to be, why he was chosen to work with Hogan, why the character got over, why Hogan loved working with him, why Slick was chosen instead of Bobby Heenan, how much money Boss Man was making on top (?!), how Andre felt about him, why Boss Man was turned babyface, whether or not he was considered for a tag title run with Akeem or an IC title run, why he lost so much weight during his first run, why he left, how he came by, how he was repackaged, the feud with Austin, why he was perfect for McMahon's Corporation, why he was sent to OVW, and what happened to end his run with WWE. We also talk about how Curt Hennig's death affected him, his relationship with the boys, his unfortunate passing at just 42 years old, and his legacy in the business.


Oh and we didn't forget the time he stole a dog, cooked it and fed it another guy, and then they had the remains on a pole in a match. Or the Kennel in a Cell. Or his poem for Big Show's daddy or the time he ruined that funeral. What a story folks, don't miss over THREE hours of the Big Boss Man!

Episode 98: Unforgiven 1998
01:58:11

The WWF is on fire by April '98. In this episode we cover the "RAW after WrestleMania" where Sean Waltman returned to the company to join DX, the New Age Outlaws became made men, Vince tried to "tame" his new champion, and everything else on the way to the Pay Per View after WrestleMania 14, Unforgiven 1998. Why was Dude Love the right opponent for Austin's first title defense? When did the company know that Austin-McMahon had "it" together? What did Waltman change that resulted in a better contract? What was the original name considered for him upon his return? How much of his "shoot" promo was scripted? How in the world did FIRE become such a critical part of the Undertaker-Kane feud? Who first pitched the Inferno Match? When did they first put the match together? What precautions were taken? You'll also hear more "tinkle, tinkle" silliness, who Bruce saw more potential in, some discussion on Mark Yeaton, the potential plan for Ric Flair on this Pay Per View, why the company didn't run Greensboro more often, what McMahon thought about the Rock N Roll Express, how the hell Sawyer Brown was on this show, how over Sable was without really doing anything, when the experiment for LOD 2000 was really over, Hunter beating Owen for the 713th time in a row, why Hunter wasn't the opponent for Steve instead of Dude Love, details on McMahon's first chair shot, and of course "Cornette" and "Pat" discussing the inferno match. We think 1998 is so easy to talk about and these two hours are going to fly by as we discuss UNFORGIVEN 1998!

WHO'S NEXT?! GOOOOOLDBERG! He was the hottest star for WCW during their hottest period but his first run in the WWE wasn't quite as stellar. Did JR try to bring him in before he signed with WCW? What did Vince think about him? What run-ins did he have with WWE superstars before coming in? Who helped bring him in? Who was against it? Why didn't he come in sooner?

What was Vince trying to accomplish with Goldberg? What did Rock think of working with him? How did he get along with Hunter? What was the locker room reception to him? What was the hilarious "common theme" with seemingly all of Goldberg's storylines? When did the relationship start to change? Was their "strike one" and a "strike two" for Goldberg in the WWE? What was Goldberg's chief complaint? Why was his first loss on a house show? Was the Elimination Chamber match a back up plan? How was business with Goldberg as the top guy? What backstage incident cemented Goldberg's future with the company? Why book Goldberg vs. Lesnar at WM20? Why was Austin added? How was it decided who would win the match?

Episode 93: The First Draft (2002)
02:39:01

Bruce has had enough and he blows a gasket to start the show this week. Around 18 minutes in, it's all about the first time Vince McMahon decided to do the very first "brand split" with the First Draft on March 25, 2002! Who had the idea first? What was the original plan? Who in the office was against a split? Was Flair always supposed to be the first "General Manager" in company history? Was the idea to create "dream matches" for super shows? Was the brand split based on revenues being down or strictly creative? Bruce details exactly how Vince presents an idea and the way the writers worked together in that era. Who was happiest Hogan was back in the locker room? Who did Hall & Nash not want in the nWo? Who was allegedly "blown off" by a friend at WrestleMania? How did Vince feel when people joked about his failure with the XFL on TV? Who first used the word "brand" and why did the company start using it on TV? Who won the battle: WWF or DirecTV? Was there ever a plan to do more than 16 PPVs a year? Bruce discusses Mark Henry in the Hall of Fame, more details than ever before about the WWF name change, what agreement Vince didn't honor, what other names were considered, who wanted the word "wrestling" out of the name, rumors about Rey and Eddie's low ball contract offers, why the lightweight title never caught on, whether or not Stephanie wanted to be a TV star, which Superstars got to tryout for color commentary before Taz was selected, what Vince said at the meeting with the boys prior to the draft, how and where those meetings are held, why Penn State was the host, why RAW got a new look that night, when the talent found out, which talent did know ahead of time, who had special requests, whether or not traveling partners were considered, the silliness of Steve Austin not being in the draft, how Jericho found out, why Hunter wasn't eligible, why the nWo could be drafted as a group but the Dudleyz were split, who saw the Dudleyz as singles stars, how the Austin-McMahon relationship was at this point, plus details on the first Undisputed World Title belt!

Episode 92: WrestleMania 19
03:51:00

Is WrestleMania 19 the most underrated WrestleMania of all time? It's Brock's first WrestleMania and he's in the main event for the World Title. It's Steve Austin's last WrestleMania and finale of the Austin-Rock trilogy. It's Shawn Michael's first WrestleMania in five years and he stole the show with Chris Jericho. This is the most "stacked" roster in company history. Jeff Hardy, Batista, Randy Orton, Kevin Nash, Goldberg, and John Cena are all on the roster but not on the show. With this loaded roster, why was business down? The buy-rate was down 36% from 2002 but why? Were fans not ready for Angle-Lesnar in the top spot? Did the Undertaker not have a big enough match? Was Hogan-Vince what people saw as the focal point? Had the Rock-Austin feud lost some of it's luster? Of course that night will mostly be remembered for the Shooting Star Press in the main event. We cover that in great detail including never before heard details of the fallout of that evening for both men and you won't believe it. Plus we examine the unbelievable choices the WWE made regarding the Booker T-Triple H storyline to build to WrestleMania, the silliness of the Miller Lite Cat Fight Girls, Torrie's Playboy, the WWE theme ride in Niagra Falls, why the World finally closed, how Austin and Hogan got along, the Flair-Bischoff fight, the Heyman-Gewirtz fight, Shawn's relationship with Vince, Jeff Hardy's diminishing interest in wrestling, Tommy Dreamer on the writing team, the original plans for John Cena at WrestleMania, Kevin Kelly, more on Nathan Jones, the rise of Benoit and Guerrero, how the plans came together at the last minute for Piper, who was considered for that spot, and the unbelievable stuff we saw Vince McMahon do in his match against Hulk Hogan. But most of all we discuss the unfortunate sendoff of "Stone Cold" as it's the retirement match that nobody knew about.

Episode 85: The Main Event on NBC: Hogan vs. Andre '88
01:48:25

WWE still refers to our topic today as, "the most watched wrestling program in American TV history." February 5, 1988, was the first time pro-wrestling had been on network TV since 1955 and 33 million viewers tuned into NBC to see the biggest rematch in history: Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant for the WWF World Championship. The largest audience in wrestling history was in for a treat: "How can there be two Dave Hebners?" Bruce breaks down arguably the best angle in WWF history and it was so good Meltzer even wrote, "Everything worked so well it was scary." We break down everything from that night and the weeks leading up to it. How did the WWF negotiate to get a slot during prime time, when was the decision made to switch the title, how did word leak out, how were tickets selling for WrestleMania IV relative to III, why did this show happen in Indianapolis, what was Ebersol's involvement since he wasn't with NBC at the time, who put together the graphics and backdrops, who produced the promos for the show, when and where were those shot, why didn't the main event close the show, what was different between Saturday Night's Main Event and the Main Event, whose idea was Peggy Sue, when was it decided that Honky wouldn't drop the IC title, who bought thousands of tickets to WrestleMania, the new World Title, who gets the credit for the evil twin idea, why there were empty seats in the arena, who the director was, who shot the Hulk Hogan training montage and why they used Jake Robert's theme, and much more about the biggest show in WWF history!

Episode 82: The Rockers & Marty Jannetty
04:16:20

The Rockers have to be the most interesting story of a tag team in the history of WWE! We cover their starts in the business individually, who put Marty and Shawn in the car together for the first time, who they learned from individually, who they wrestled in their first tag match, how they got to the AWA for their first big break, a hilarious casino story that sets the tone for their careers, Gagne's suggestions for them, the inspiration for their name, who they tried to emulate, the ribs the Rockers pulled in the AWA, how the partying stories about the Rockers grew, who pushed for them to come in, who Marty had a relationship with, how they left the AWA, what happened a month before that possibly changed everything, what an agent said to them on their first day, what really happened at the bar on their first night in, what Vince said the next day, how they were fired, the infamous "boots" comment from Vince, how Shawn got them ran out of Continental so quickly, how the legend of their WWF firing grew, who turned them heel which gave them another chance, how they got back in and out of the AWA, who pushed to bring them back, which of the boys told them how to fix their heat, what warning Vince gave them before they started back, who they had to win over in the locker room, a year long rib, who wouldn't sell for the Rockers, who Shawn says helped the Rockers earn their "degree" in being a tag team, the night before their first WrestleMania, how much they made their first year in the WWF, Iron Man tag matches, the crazy promo with Warrior and athletic tape before Survivor Series 89, who the Rockers got a good match out of that really caught the office's attention, Shawn's motorcycle accident, the broken rope story with the Hart Foundation that changed everything, did Bret politic to keep the tag titles, the entire Chuck Austin story including who paid what, what wrestler demonstrated the move in court, who testified against Vince here too, the famous hotel fight that Roddy Piper witnessed, how Savage kept everyone out of jail, how Vince tried to fix it the next day, what led to the Rockers wanting to quit, the offer from WCW, how Shawn tried to play "damage control" with Vince, and the fall out that followed. Then we move on to the break up angle, who had the idea to use the glass, the "he said, he said" that led to a fractured relationship for years. Marty's firings, hirings, whether or not Shawn buried Marty to Vince after their Rumble match, who pushed for him to have those second changes, the arrests, the New Rockers, and how Shawn got Marty to give his new found faith a shot. We answer your questions and of course address the controversial Facebook post from last year.

Plus side bars about Vince speaking carny, working babyface, the wrestler handshake, the definition of psychology, why so many were influenced by Flair, how Shawn would have done in JCP, the Southwest territory, the "boss" being out of touch, why some guys were never able to break out of the "enhancement talent" title, Bruce burying an "old timer" he only met one time, Terry Garvin -- who we never discuss, the importance of the ESPN TV contract, the influence of Dynamite Kid and Tiger Mask matches, what precautions were taken after the Austin injury, the WWF-SWS relationship, house show title changes, Shawn's indy fed, and the "greatest tag teams in history" debate.

Episode 73: Bret Hart’s 96/97
04:44:48

The business was changing in 1996 and Bret Hart was at the center of it all for the World Wrestling Federation. Bill Watts is out and the decision is made to make Shawn Michaels "the guy." Soon after, Diesel and Razor leave for greener pastures creating a perfect storm for Bret Hart to the subject of the greatest bidding war in the history of the business. Bret stays loyal for less money but finds that this isn't the same WWF he left a year before. How did the Ultimate Warrior potentially change everything for Bret? What did Bret think of Shawn losing his smile? How did Vince convince Bret to become a heel? What was with the cursing on RAW before WrestleMania 13? Bret doubled down and the Hart Foundation's angle became the hottest in the company. While feuding on camera with Steve Austin, Bret's real issue was with Shawn Michaels. We address Sunny days, the wheelchair promo to end RAW, the fight before RAW, the "girly" magazine comments, and how "working the boys" turned into a shoot. What fault did Bret deserve in this? What single conversation could have caused the Montreal Screwjob? On one of the most historic nights of Mick Foley and Steve Austin's career, Bret learns his contract is about to be breached because Vince can't afford him. When did Vince regret giving Bret that contract? Did Vince change his mind and tell Bret he found the money? What did Bret's agent say? What did Bret ask Bischoff for? When Bret got the offer, how did Vince respond? Once the deal was done, how did word get out? What did Bret write in his column that week that directly contradicts what Bret wrote in his book? Why did Vince write an open letter to the fans before the Survivor Series? Who suggested the screwjob? What offer did Vince make to Bret for the night before that Bret turned down? Which of the boys tried to warn Bret? Who knew the night of? When did Earl see Bret again? We've heard Bret's account of punching Vince but what really happened in that room? Who tried to quit in protest? Who came up with "Bret Screwed Bret" for the interview with JR? Bret's final two years in the company saw him put on some of his best matches ever, he certainly give his strongest promos of his career during this time, and was involved in one of the hottest angles in company history. Does the screwjob tarnish all of that? Decide for yourself in our longest episode ever in what we believe is the best podcast there is, was, or ever will be!

03:19:00

FINALLY! The Rock has come back to... Something to Wrestle! Bruce Prichard has three hours worth of details about how Dwayne Johnson become the "Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment." Long before anyone could "smell what the Rock was cooking," he was trying to get a developmental deal once football didn't work out. Who did the company think would be the "star" of Rocky's training class? The "Blue Chipper" won the Intercontinental Title very quickly and the fans revolted with "ROCKY SUCKS" chants and "DIE ROCKY DIE" signs. Bruce addresses the rumors that two superstars worked hard to squash his push early and often. Eventually they get their way and Rocky hit the skids. Who suggested Rocky start referring to himself in third person? Raising the eyebrow? The People's Elbow? The $500 shirts? The Rolex watch skit with the NOD? What did Rock think of the DX parody? What was his routine after the shows? Bruce addresses all of the behind the scenes jockeying for position with Hunter, Shawn, and Austin along the way. Which agent was an advocate? Bruce and Conrad discuss the Ladder Match at SummerSlam, the babyface turn, first matches with Mick Foley, the bridge angle with Austin, and perhaps one of the Top 10 best storylines in the WWF history that paid off at Survivor Series 1998!
