Mickie James: Trish Stratus Superfan

Mickie James was the original WWE crazy chick when she came on the scene in 2005.

Season 6 - Episode #8: Mickie James: Trish Stratus Superfan

Mickie James first arrived in WWE in October 2005. She was immediately thrust into the spotlight by being paired with Women's Champion Trish Stratus. She was her biggest fan at first and it often made things bizarre and very awkward between the two. But that would morph into hatred from Crazy Chick Mickie James. This lead to one of the best women's matches at WrestleMania 22. Follow us as well go through the entire weird angle. Also we talk current WWE post SummerSlam.

Snooki

That time Jersey Shore came to WrestleMania 27

Season 6 - Episode #7: Snooki

Harris had a great time with this one. Mark did not. WrestleMania 27 was not great. Mark would know because he was there. But people usually forget about the fact that Jersey Shore's Snooki had a match. And won! So get ready because painful or not we talk all about it!

Undashing Cody Rhodes

In 2011 Cody Rhodes created and perfected a character that remains his best work to date.

Season 6 - Episode #6: Undashing

After another two week break due to sickness and scheduling we are finally back! This week we go back to 2011 and explore one of the characters WWE has produced in decades. Cody Rhodes turned a Dashing gimmick into an Undashing one with a broken character wearing a protective mask. His promo work was spectacular and bizarre.

Beaver Cleavage Part 2: The Abusive Relationship

This follows the absurd WWF career of Chaz after the Beaver Cleavage debacle.

Season 6 - Episode #5: Beaver Cleavage Part 2: The Abusive Relationship

Well if you thought we were done talking about Charles Warrington then you were sadly mistaken. After the Beaver Cleavage gimmick died he became Chaz. And was boring. But then his girlfriend, Mrs. Cleavage herself claimed he was beating her and it became a huge on-screen locker room issue. Also we discuss current(ish) wrestling news!

I Choppy Choppy Your Pee Pee

A porn star gimmick in the Attitude Era goes awry.

Season 6 - Episode #3: I Choppy Choppy Your Pee Pee

We apologize in advance. This is another one (Harris picked) that is inappropriate for kids. The Attitude Era was a pretty disgusting time and this is yet another example why. Val Venis. Don't really have to say more. A porn star gimmick goes WAY too far. WAY TOO FAR!

Ryder Revolution

In 2011 Zack Ryder pulled himself out of obscurity and became one of the hottest superstars in the WWE.

Season 6 - Episode #2: Ryder Revolution

Zack Ryder was a wrestler no one cared about in the WWE back in 2011. Unsatisfied with that, he started his own YouTube channel and eventually became an internet sensation in the wrestling community and got so over that he became an integral part of RAW! Join us as we explore that story! Also a special What's Up With David Arquette segment where we got RJ City to say a few words!

Beaver Cleavage

This week's episode contains some slightly adult themes. This is when WWF turned a wholesome 50's TV show into a nightmare.

Season 6 - Episode #6: Beaver Cleavage

Warning. This week's episode contains some adult themes.

We are back and we are delving into an insane story line from the good ol WWF in 1999. Only Vince and the WWF in the Attitude Era would think that making a 1950's TV show into a jokingly incestuous angle. Only Vince. Also we discuss Double or Nothing, NXT TakeOver 25 and What's Up With David Arquette!

The AJ Styles and Claire Lynch Saga

That time AJ Styles had an affair with the boss of TNA and screwed a crack addict.

Season 5 - Episode #1: The AJ Styles and Claire Lynch Saga

Oh man. Buckle up folks because we've got a wild one for ya. Back in TNA in 2012 Christopher Daniels and Kazarian started claiming AJ Styles had a "secret" that they would expose. Well that would lead to a summer-long feud of insane proportions. It involves an affair with the boss Dixie Carter, helping a crack addict and then impregnating said crack addict. Nope I'm not kidding. Take a listen if you dare!

Season 4 Premier: Clowns R' Us vs. The Royal Court

That time Doink and his posse of clowns took on Jerry Lawler and his posse of kings.

Season 4 - Episode #1: Season 4 Premier: Clowns R' Us vs. The Royal Court

In 1993-94 Doink the Clown started messing with Jerry "The King" Lawler. This feud lasted over a year and spawned many wonderfully awful moments. The culmination was Doink with his posse of little people clowns taking on Lawler and his posse of little people kings at Survivor Series 1994.
