Podcast cover
Read more

1997 was one of the most important years in WWF history. We will examine the story lines like the USA-Canada angle of course but the real story is what is actually happening within the company. The WWF has greater attendance but ratings and PPV buys are down. We're less than two months away from Vince McMahon coming to Bret to tell him, "I can't afford your contract." We know that the following month, Vince "found the money." But how? We examine what changes the company made to cut costs and raise revenues, some that fans wouldn't have ever even noticed. Of course at the end of this show, Bret would become champion. If he hadn't, would the "screwjob" have ever happened three months later? Why did Vince still go with Bret as champion here? What were people saying about Shawn's knee? What happened before, during, and after Owen piledrove Austin? Of course we examine the love heaped on Whitman for changing the tax situation in New Jersey for the WWF and the silly million dollar contest with calling fans live on the air. Join us on a "State of the WWF" for the Summer of 1997!

Rank #11: Episode 73: Bret Hart’s 96/97

Podcast cover
Read more

The business was changing in 1996 and Bret Hart was at the center of it all for the World Wrestling Federation. Bill Watts is out and the decision is made to make Shawn Michaels "the guy." Soon after, Diesel and Razor leave for greener pastures creating a perfect storm for Bret Hart to the subject of the greatest bidding war in the history of the business. Bret stays loyal for less money but finds that this isn't the same WWF he left a year before. How did the Ultimate Warrior potentially change everything for Bret? What did Bret think of Shawn losing his smile? How did Vince convince Bret to become a heel? What was with the cursing on RAW before WrestleMania 13? Bret doubled down and the Hart Foundation's angle became the hottest in the company. While feuding on camera with Steve Austin, Bret's real issue was with Shawn Michaels. We address Sunny days, the wheelchair promo to end RAW, the fight before RAW, the "girly" magazine comments, and how "working the boys" turned into a shoot. What fault did Bret deserve in this? What single conversation could have caused the Montreal Screwjob? On one of the most historic nights of Mick Foley and Steve Austin's career, Bret learns his contract is about to be breached because Vince can't afford him. When did Vince regret giving Bret that contract? Did Vince change his mind and tell Bret he found the money? What did Bret's agent say? What did Bret ask Bischoff for? When Bret got the offer, how did Vince respond? Once the deal was done, how did word get out? What did Bret write in his column that week that directly contradicts what Bret wrote in his book? Why did Vince write an open letter to the fans before the Survivor Series? Who suggested the screwjob? What offer did Vince make to Bret for the night before that Bret turned down? Which of the boys tried to warn Bret? Who knew the night of? When did Earl see Bret again? We've heard Bret's account of punching Vince but what really happened in that room? Who tried to quit in protest? Who came up with "Bret Screwed Bret" for the interview with JR? Bret's final two years in the company saw him put on some of his best matches ever, he certainly give his strongest promos of his career during this time, and was involved in one of the hottest angles in company history. Does the screwjob tarnish all of that? Decide for yourself in our longest episode ever in what we believe is the best podcast there is, was, or ever will be!

Rank #16: Episode 92: WrestleMania 19

Podcast cover
Read more

Is WrestleMania 19 the most underrated WrestleMania of all time? It's Brock's first WrestleMania and he's in the main event for the World Title. It's Steve Austin's last WrestleMania and finale of the Austin-Rock trilogy. It's Shawn Michael's first WrestleMania in five years and he stole the show with Chris Jericho. This is the most "stacked" roster in company history. Jeff Hardy, Batista, Randy Orton, Kevin Nash, Goldberg, and John Cena are all on the roster but not on the show. With this loaded roster, why was business down? The buy-rate was down 36% from 2002 but why? Were fans not ready for Angle-Lesnar in the top spot? Did the Undertaker not have a big enough match? Was Hogan-Vince what people saw as the focal point? Had the Rock-Austin feud lost some of it's luster? Of course that night will mostly be remembered for the Shooting Star Press in the main event. We cover that in great detail including never before heard details of the fallout of that evening for both men and you won't believe it. Plus we examine the unbelievable choices the WWE made regarding the Booker T-Triple H storyline to build to WrestleMania, the silliness of the Miller Lite Cat Fight Girls, Torrie's Playboy, the WWE theme ride in Niagra Falls, why the World finally closed, how Austin and Hogan got along, the Flair-Bischoff fight, the Heyman-Gewirtz fight, Shawn's relationship with Vince, Jeff Hardy's diminishing interest in wrestling, Tommy Dreamer on the writing team, the original plans for John Cena at WrestleMania, Kevin Kelly, more on Nathan Jones, the rise of Benoit and Guerrero, how the plans came together at the last minute for Piper, who was considered for that spot, and the unbelievable stuff we saw Vince McMahon do in his match against Hulk Hogan. But most of all we discuss the unfortunate sendoff of "Stone Cold" as it's the retirement match that nobody knew about.

Christian a sure-fire Hall of Famer with a story unlike any other Superstar in WWE history. Today Bruce takes us back to the beginning of his wrestling career all the way through today. From paying for his training to the legacy he has left and everything in between. Of course Christian's story is one of highs and lows. Bruce and Conrad examine his on-screen debut, the pairing with the Brood, whether or not that faction ended too quickly, what helped make his pairing with Edge, what writer had the most influence on his career as a tag wrestler, what PPV "made" their team, the infamous TLC matches people still talk about to this day, and of course the break up. How did they decide who was going to be the "good guy" in that story line? What did Vince see in Christian at that time? Did Vince really want Christian to cut his hair? Why didn't it happen? What's the rumor and innuendo about the blue dot? Of course the temper tantrums, the title runs, and the departure from WWE must be addressed. How did Vince react to Christian leaving? Did the TNA run help him upon his return? Why did Dixie Carter choose him to return to TNA in 2012 as a special deal with WWE over all other contracted WWE talent? What would Christian's career look like if there was never an Edge character? All of this and much more for our podcast peeps as we examine the life and times of Christian in the WWE!

Bruce and Conrad have covered the Mega Powers exploding and Zeus, but what about the rest of Hogan's 1989? Learn more about the script for No Holds Barred, how Hogan taking a dump saved the movie, how the movie nearly didn't make theaters, and all about the Rumble, Survivor Series, and SummerSlam matches that year with fun sidebars on Honky, Schiavone, Bad News, and Sherri. When we get to 1990 you won't believe what Bruce was suggesting but Vince shut down, why Vince shut it down, hear a hilarious Pat Patterson quote, why the switch to Warrior, Hogan's attitude at the time, why Hogan was taking time off, who was against the switch, background on Tenta, something Bruce always thought was funny about Tenta, the reason Tugboat wasn't at ringside at SummerSlam, why the letter campaign from Tugboat for Hulk was done, why SummerSlam 90 wasn't a clean finish, and much more. WHATCHA GONNA DO when Something to Wrestle runs wild on you?! (Oh and "always believe in yourself!")
