Ethan Cheng joins Joe and Eric this week to talk about the 12/22/1997 Raw and nWo Nitro! We also talk about CM Punk on Colt Cabana’s podcast, Survivor Series 2014 and Lucha Underground.
It’s episode 100! To celebrate, we take a break from the grind of Monday Night Wars to talk about something much, much more horrifying: Journey into Darkness. For anyone unfamiliar with this 300-page piece of professional fan-fiction, Journey into Darkness is a novelized version of Kane’s life. It is also awful in every imaginable way. Join us as we summarized and criticize the book IF YOU DARE.
The boys take on the 12/15/97 Raw and Nitro, and merry Xmas, it’s a THREE HOUR NITRO! (The first hour is actually pretty good.) Show includes hot takes on Disco Inferno, the relative desirability of a MagLite as Christmas present, how oddly Abe’s Oddysee was marketed in the ’90s, Vince’s “good guys vs. bad guys” speech, how badly the ball was dropped with a potential Owen vs. Shawn feud and, oh yeah, Stone Cold does some promo on a bridge or something.
A couple of weeks ago, we stayed up for 24-hours playing videogames to raise money for Extra Life. Around hour 23, we decided record a commentary track for the first episode of WCW Nitro. If you’d like to watch the Nitro debut and listen to two sleepy chuckle heads talk about Arn Anderson’s wind breaker, then this is the wrestling podcast for you!
