AJ Styles is now a top WWE performer, working a big angle with the top dog in the company. He’s benefiting from the most exposure he’s ever had, and there is a way TNA can, too. In this clip from last week’s show I discuss how.

When I was a kid, I had all of the WWF Hasbro toys. When I saw a Toys R’ Us ad in the March 1991 WWF Magazine I saw two figures that I had to have-the Rhythm and Blues team of Honky Tonk Man and Greg Valentine. I looked high and low and never found that figure. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I learned about the legend of the “Unreleased Rhythm and Blues Prototype”. Today, I found this video on Ringside Collectibles’ Youtube channel, with the owner of the prototype telling the story.
If you were a kid who collected the WWF Hasbro figures you will want to check this video out.
On this week’s show, I gave my predictions for this weekend’s Extreme Rules and mentioned the rumored injury to Kalisto. To clarify, the injury was not legit and used to sell the beatdown from Rusev. So for worrying those who were looking forward to the match, I’m sorry if I disappointed you…
On second thought, for those not interested in seeing this match I’m sorry to disappoint you.
Preview of WWE Extreme Rules 2016, rumors of Vince McMahon giving up on the Roman Empire, reason for Vince McMahon selling block of corporate stock, WWE hinting that AJ Styles is almost finished with wrestling, Anderson and Gallows lose again, CM Punk’s lack of progression as a fighter, idea for Cesaro’s character, why I generally don’t like ironic horror films, what I do like in horror films, why Halloween H20 is the perfect franchise sequel, and more.
Brian Jay is back for episode 2. Since we just passed the 36th anniversary of “Friday the 13th”, Mother’s Day was Sunday, and this Friday is May 13th, what better way to celebrate than talk about Jason Voorhees and the “Friday the 13th” series. I always thought his story was tragic, and much like Frankenstein (his “father” is Victor Frankenstein, you take your father’s name, so yes the creature’s name IS Frankenstein you hipster doofus!).
Also WWE’s Busflip Black Friday, the mythical video store/Brian is old as hell, high points of the AJ Styles/Roman Reigns Feud, Brian’s idea for TNA to make some money off of AJ Styles’s new-found popularity, and EC3’s Indie wrestling versus WWE angle at Evolve and his chances in WWE.
As mentioned on today’s episode, here are two funny wrestling skits that we were reminded of when discussing Glenn Gilbertti’s horrible ideas in wrestling. Let us know which one you like better in the comment section below.
