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 74: Dog Food

On the July 28, 1997 episodes of WWF Raw and WCW Nitro, the year of the mannequin continues, we find out that Scott Steiner needs to moisturize, and we learn why the weasel powered car never caught on.

Also, for the first (and hopefully not last) time we have a special animated gif presentation. In Exhibit A, a man is covered in mechanically separated beef parts:

And in Exhibit B, a fan is way too excited about Alex Wright getting his groove thang on:

What a Maneuver 73: Lugan and Hoger

Hey! We’re back! I mean, ok, I know we were back with the last episode, but that was recorded like fucking forever ago, and this? This was recorded a week ago. So, yeah, back. And to celebrate, we talk about two not especially noteworthy episodes of weekly TV. Oh, I guess Nitro was on a tuesday that week. So, yeah. July 21st, 1997 Raw, July 22nd, 1997 Nitro. Enjoy. It’s like we never left. We also talk about how psyched we are for WWE Network, because, seriously, we won’t have to download torrents of PPVs from Shady Russian YouTube anymore.

What a Maneuver 72: WHAT AN ARMDRAG

After an extended holiday break, we are back! Chris Novembrino (of the Don’t Worry About the Government podcast) joins us to discuss WCW Bash at the Beach 1997, and the July 14th, 1997 episodes of WCW Nitro and WWF Raw. In this episode, we talk about the debut of the Nitro Girls, get all phil-os-i-fickle with Raven, observe Mankind emerge from his boiler room cocoon, and spend way too much time trying to make sense of the feud between Chris Benoit and Kevin Sullivan.

What a Maneuver 71: Nutritious and Aloysius

We’re joined by K. Sawyer Paul of Gredunza Press (and all that goes along with that) once again to discuss WWF Canadian Stampede and the 7/7/97 Raw and Nitro. K. Sawyer was in attendance at Canadian Stampede and helps us more or less just talk about what a great show it is. He then leaves and the show takes the downturn you would expect when Joe & Eric are left to their own devices.
