The ECW Mass Transit Incident

A kid faked his way onto an ECW show and what happened will live on in infamy.

Season 6 - Episode #10B: The ECW Mass Transit Incident

Shawn The Super Seller

Shawn Michaels and Hulk Hogan with a match for the ages...sort of.

Season 6 - Episode #9: Shawn The Super Seller

It was an outstanding build with some of Shawn Michaels best heel work. And it was turned into a joke. In 2005 Hulk Hogan had returned to the WWE again and started a program with Michaels. Michaels turned heel and did a great job hyping what was supposed to be a three match series starting at SummerSlam. Hogan had other ideas and instead everything was thrown out to have Hogan win a classic Hogan match and that be it. Shawn was none too happy and the result is the best selling in any match in wrestling history!

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

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!

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!
