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.

The Renegade Brigade Episode 1

What a Maneuver was fun. We had a few laughs, got to talk to a bunch of interesting guests, and learned quite a bit about professional wrestling. Now it’s time to shift gears a bit and talk about something with gravitas. Something with cultural relevance. Something that will teach us about life, love and Lorenzo Lamas’ nipples. Now it’s time to talk about The Renegade.

What a Maneuver 42: Clubberin' n Uncle-in'

K Sawyer Paul of International Object joins us as we bid farewell to professional wrestling in 1996. It’s a damn good send off to the first season of What a Maneuver, as we cover Starcade ’96, and the December 30th, 1996 episodes of WWF Raw and WCW Nitro.

What a Maneuver 41: Watch Him Grow

This time out, Ethan Cheng of Loud Cups and sometimes of The Action Cast! joins us to discuss the 2nd to last Raw and Nitro of 1996. We’re covering the 12/23/96 episodes this time. Topics include a Bobby Fischer on a poll match, how great Dean Malenko is, why no one cares about Raw and more!

What a Maneuver 40: The World Needs More Indoor Blimps

This week, we cover WWF In Your House: It’s Time, and the December 16th, 1996 episodes of Raw and Nitro. We can feel the Attitude-era sloshing around just below the surface, because Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels are acting like spoiled teens, and WWF characters are throwing around EDGY (caps emphasizing irony) terms like Uncle Tom and Queer. It’s a struggle to talk about shit like that in the context of a fun wrestling podcast, but we give it a shot.

On the lighter side, Ice Train’s theme music is the Hott Jam of the week!
