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 91: Something Foul is Afoot

This week Tom Holzerman, of The Wrestling Blog, joins us to discuss Survivor Series 1997. Some pretty important stuff happens on this PPV, like Steve Blackman’s first promo, and his first match! We also talk about the Trousers of Time, reasons to read Mein Kampf, what kind of dudes Tom is into and whether or not Bret screwed Bret.

What a Maneuver 90: It Transcends Mere Moonsaultdom

The boys take on the 11/3/97 Raw and Nitro in this, our 90th installment. Topics covered include the fine line between a good heel and Brian Christopher, the Mystery of Marc Mero, Bret Hart’s final Raw appearance for the purposes of What a Maneuver, and a pretty fucking lackluster episode of Nitro.

What a Maneuver 89: Slim Jim Presents Ass Biting

The boys are joined this week by Joe’s buddy and friend of the show, Ryan Foster. He’s with us to talk about Slim Jim’s Halloween Havoc 1997 and the 10/27/97 Raw and Nitro. We discuss a surprisingly good pay-per-view with a not surprisingly great mask vs. title match and a staggeringly awful main event. Also included: Vince McMahon declares there is no racism in WWE and the Atlantic declares The Rock is not black. (Editors note: This was recorded during a livestream of old NES wrestling games, so if we randomly interject about old videogames, you know why.)

What a Maneuver 88: Chumpanzee

We are BACK! This episode covers the October 20th, 1997 episodes of WWF Raw and WCW Nitro. We discuss: Jeff Jarrett’s return to the WWF, the potential of a Scott Norton vs. Ray Traylor blindfold match, the WWF’s liberal use of racism, and WCW’s liberal use of the phrase “down the line”.
