Rank #1: Episode 63: IYH A Cold Day In Hell

Podcast cover
Read more
Vader is tasked with helping Ken Shamrock with his transition from the UFC in Episode 63 of ‘The New Generation Project Podcast’ where we take a look at “In Your House: A Cold Day In Hell”. Unfortunately for Vader, Ken is a less than apt pupil, so he has to go to some extreme lengths to get ‘The World’s Most Dangerous Man’ to settle down…

Featuring; your suggestions for wrestlers appearing in animated series, the Scrivens family get a buggy board, we discuss the death of Chyna and the WWE politics surrounding it, Mankind cuts a creepy promo to a little girl, Vader cuts a scary promo to everyone in the arena, Ahmed cuts an incomprehensible promo to everyone on the planet, Earl Hebner loses it, a couple of new additions to The Hart Foundation, Rockabilly and Jesse James have another classic and Paul offers his own personal audience suggestion.

Plus the answers to the questions; How loud do you have to call spots to get us to notice? What’s the greatest kids theme song of all time? What’s happened to The Funkettes? What the fuck is D’Lo Brown wearing? Who’s shooting on who? How many kneepads does one man need? What’s changed about the “In Your House” set? Which of us has never seen “The Thing”? What’s a Wheelchair Match? And what is a more apt name for Ahmed Johnson’s gauntlet match against The Nation?

After months of some of the best build in wrestling history, it's finally time for Bret 'The Hitman' Hart to return to the squared circle in the world's most famous arena to take on the man he calls the best wrestler in the WWF - Stone Cold Steve Austin. In Episode 46 of 'The New Generation Project Podcast' we take a look at "Survivor Series 1996".

Featuring; your suggestions for wrestlers boring backstage hobbies, D'Lo Browns Supermarket Review Blog, the last Hall of Fame ceremony for 8 years, the podcast debuts of Salvatore Sincere, Flash Funk, Doug Furnas, Philip LaFon, The Nation of Domination and some guy called Rocky Maivia, 'Top Gunn' Billy Gunn, we say 'Goodbye' to Marty Jannetty and Yokozuna, some real shoddy refereeing, Emo Batman Undertaker, Chubby McQuiet, a breakdown of Bret Harts negotiations with WCW and the WWF and Shawn Michaels gets rather upset with the New York crowd.

Plus the answers to the questions; Who had a falling out over Cluedo? What state does Paul like the name of? How many Ferrero Rocher can be eaten in a minute? How do you sound disappointed and surprised at the same time? Who has the better imitation Vince laugh? Is Harvey Whippleman notable or not able? Exactly how pure and innocent is Sunny? What is the energy content of urine? Who has a 'very refined ground attack'? Who's the best wrestler at changing gears? How many drugs tests did Too Cold Scorpio fail? And who's the man?

Of all the important moments we've covered in looking at nearly 4 years of WWF action, there is perhaps none more vital than when Bret 'The Hitman' Hart and 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin waged war in a Submission Match in Chicago, Illinois on March 23rd, 1997. In Episode 59 of 'The New Generation Project Podcast' we break down "Wrestlemania 13".

Featuring; your suggestions for song parodies about wrestlers, full introductions for Ken Shamrock, The New Blackjacks and Chyna, the kitchen sink, Ahmed Johnson joins The Legion Of Doom, a seminal sign makes its debut, The Iron Sheik applies a Camel Clutch, Sunny and Sable suspiciously don't appear, Marc Mero faces everyone, Tony Atlas does nothing, PG-13 get murdered while Marlena mildly avoids it, more great kids theme tunes, matches with no logical build and some matches with nearly a year's build.

Plus the answers to the questions; What changes were made to the card? Is Sid over? Do cats have noses? Who was supposed to be the sole female member of the nWo? Who ran over whom and why? Which performer gets the longest entrance on the show? What Radiohead albums does Adam like? How could you make Vince like Furnas & LaFon more? Who is the Captain of the team? Who was supposed to get their head shaved? And where is considered to be the "Dallas of South-West Britain"?

Speak to you after "Wrestlemania 32"!
