Unnamed Wrestlecast 01: Do We Know What the Z Stands For?

Well, this isn’t What a Maneuver… No, this is a new show from Joe and his friend Greg. We’ll be doing riff style commentaries on various matches as Joe gives Greg a whirlwind tour of the history of (mostly bad) pro wrestling. And what better place to start than with the Doomsday Cage match from Uncensored 1996?

Also, we need help naming this thing, so tweet (or leave comments here) suggesting a name for this clusterfuck!

What a Maneuver 102: Disappointment

This week Robert Fuller, of the Lo-Down Wrestling blog/podcast, joins us to talk about Starrcade 1997. In some ways this PPV marked the high point of WCW’s success, and in other ways it foreshadowed the company’s demise. We cover all of the highs (Sting wins!) and lows (17 minutes of Luger/Bagwell!), plus we discuss casual luchadores, sleepy Stevie Ray, and NXT R|Evolution. ALSO Eric reveals his brilliant plan to save WCW.
