This week, the boys look at April 6th, 1998, the last week of Nitro’s historic 84 week ratings domination. Magnum TOKYO makes a random Nitro appearance, Dan Severn is pretty awesome, Hulk Hogan is surprisingly coherent and both Mick Foley and Steve Austin cut amazing promos. A surprisingly good week of TV, believe it or not.
This week, we talk about the March 30th, 1998 episodes of WWF Raw, and WCW Nitro. Topics of discussion include: The true meaning of “rip ass”, WCW salaries, circus death matches, how to properly sell the Stone Cold Stunner, evening gown matches that don’t make any sense, Nitro being too fucking long, DTI’s, DHI’s, and QCI’s.
We wrap up this year’s look at the worst of Halloween Havoc with Sid vs. Goldberg from 1999. This match consists almost entirely of punching. And bleeding. And one camel clutch. It’s bad.
This week, we’re joined by a very special guest: Frank Gibson of Muscle Temple (he also works on Tiny Kitten Teeth and Bee and Puppycat). Frank suffers through the eight man Chamber of Horrors match at Halloween Havoc 1991. Along the way, we pontificate on the Punjabi Prison match, Joe confuses Kevin Nash and Scott Hall’s pre-WWF gimmicks and we all get sad about Mick Foley’s involvement in this garbage pile.
