In this first ever Stiff Right Hand Podcast The Dominator is joined by Brother Drake and they discuss etiquette, kayfabe killing and the womens wrestling scene.


WrestleMania 14: First Bell Podcast

1998 is considered by many to be a peak year for WWF, as it ushers in the Attitude era with the coronation of Stone Cold Steve Austin as the WWF Champion. WrestleMania 14 is the biggest show of the year, and the culmination of the Austin/Tyson confrontation. For all the plaudits received for its historical significance, the buzz around pro wrestling in pop culture at the time, and the money drawn because of the fallout of this show. But do you remember anything else from the event? We go back and review it.

 


SMD Show: Episode 3

MMA:

 

UFC 206 gets recapped, including a major fight of the year candidate between Cub Swanson & Doo Ho Choi. We also discuss the Brock Lesnar fine and suspension after he failed a drug test; this turns his win over Mark Hunt from UFC 200 into a No Contest. UFC have announced a Women’s Featherweight division (145lb), which begins at UFC 208 in Brooklyn, NY. It is being contested for by the #12 ranked fighter in the 135lb division. Is this a good idea? and talk about tonight’s UFC Fight Night card, main evented by Paige VanZant, and also featuring CM Punk’s destroyer, Mickey Gall. We give our predictions.

 

Wrestling:

 

TLC gets recapped, as Shane bounces back from joint-bottom of the Survivor Series prediction leader board to come joint-first this time around! Plus, a discussion about the brand new WWE UK Championship that Triple H announced during a press conference at London’s O2 Arena on Thursday. Is this their answer to ITV’s pilot that airs on New Year’s Eve, or is the timing purely coincidental? Plus, WWE Roadblock: End of the Line takes place this Sunday, so we give our predictions. You can join in with this game too, by visiting our Facebook and leaving a comment on the predictions post with your picks. You have until Sunday to enter!

 

MMA to start the show, pro wrestling talk begins at 58 minutes.

MMA

We go over the big fights from the UFC Ultimate Fighter Finale show, and chat about the latest MMA news including the changes to next week’s UFC 206 card, Conor McGregor’s potential foray into boxing, his relinquished championship going to Jose Aldo, Daniel Cormier’s injury and whether the AKA training camps are to blame, MMA Athletes Association fronted by GSP and whether it’s a positive step, so much news and opinion shoehorned into just 49 minutes.

 

Wrestling:

Survivor Series highlights discussed, including our dire performance in the predictions contest. TLC is happening later tonight, so we give our predictions for that show, and Shane vents about random things along the way- too many long wrestling shows, Raw being on a 30-day delay on the network, he probably says out loud a lot of things the average fan will think about modern wrestling. Do you agree with him?

Born To Be Wired 1997

We watch old wrestling from our childhood and find out whether we were watching it through rose-tinted glasses. This is the first ECW show we have covered, and one we need to seek out on DVD as it isn’t on the WWE Network. We explain why that is, and break down the whole show, in this ENORMOUS 2+ hour podcast reviewing ECW Born To Be Wired 1997.


Survivor Series 2002

We watch old wrestling from our childhood and find out whether we were watching it through rose-tinted glasses. This episode is our first venture into the new millennium; we should all have flying cars and robot slaves by now, so let’s see how the wrestling holds up. Survivor Series 2002 took place in the heralded Madison Square Garden in New York, but does the show live up to expectations?


Uncensored 1999

We watch old wrestling from our childhood and find out whether we were watching it through rose-tinted glasses. WCW Uncensored 1999 is the subject of our attention in this episode. To give you an idea of what to expect: the main event is a First Blood match where both wrestlers blade, yet the match ends by pinfall.


Starrcade 1990

We watch old wrestling from our childhood and find out whether we were watching it through rose-tinted glasses. This week, we give our thoughts on WCW Starrcade 1990. The Black Scorpion arrives in a spaceship to challenge Sting for the NWA world championship, and the tag team of the UNIVERSE is crowned in the Pat O’Connor Memorial Tournament.
