What a Maneuver! is a podcast about classic wrestling. The show’s hosts, Joe Drilling and Eric Allen, are two crazy men who plan to watch every episode of WWF Raw and WCW Nitro from 1997, in order, then podcast about what they’ve seen.

What a Maneuver 99: The Most Vincent Face Time

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.

What a Maneuver EX3: So Sleepy

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!

What a Maneuver 98: A Very Elaborate and Extended Metaphor

This time out, the boys are joined by Joe Boots and Chuck Fresh of The Mothaship to discuss the December 8th, 1997 Raw and Nitro. Topics include strip poker, when the Iron Claw was cool and the rarest of boners.

What a Maneuver 97: We Could Have Had Flash Flanagan

This week Eric Darsie, of Main Event Status Radio, joins us to talk about In Your House: Degeneration X. In this episode: Eric is late, robot Kenny G plays a digital saxophone, we discuss our favorite flavor of Intercontinental Championship belt, Joe does a Marc Mero impersonation that is a little TOO good, and Darsie opens up his big bag of puns.
