Wish this was recorded after NXT, but I'm glad to get a new episode either way.

Dan Ryckert is anti-swag.

Posted by Milkman

Unfortunate that you guys had to record this before NXT because it's pretty much only wrestling related thing I can think about lately.

God i love Giantbomb. I don't even watch wresting or play videogames.

Posted by LordLOC

NXT was fucking amazing. WWE should just switch NXT and RAW and call it a day. Best wrestling I've seen in nearly 15 years from WWE. To bad you guys didn't record after NXT aired though like others have said. Still, good to have the bombcast back.

@p_p_o_d: I love you so much

So hyped for this episode

The talk about "internet fans" is really silly to me. Everyone is an "internet fan." The internet is not a niche thing anymore that stoner, unemployed teens use to download Doom WADs. Everyone is on the internet.

And the idea that these "smark" fans are always unsatisfied just isn't true. And it was proven this week with the NXT. Just look at the wrestling thread on this site. We're a group of smarky assholes in the world and you'd be hard pressed to find a single person in the thread with a bad thing to say about NXT Revolution. Shit, Reddit sent Triple H a fruit basket. Even if you want to look at the main roster stuff, "the internet" LOVED WrestleMania XXX. Everyone was satisfied. The wanking over how internet nerds will never be happy just seems like a excuse for the show to continue to be horrible.

Do they talk about World War 3 or for the 3rd time skip it?

Edited by StraightGrizzly

Say what you will about 90's Mike Tyson, but he was undeniably one of the biggest media figures in the world then.

Also, Jeff's reaction to learning the character of Erik Rowan is PERFECT.

As for the UFC business and Dan's idea of Punk playing things up...NOT GONNA HAPPEN. Say what you will about Dana White but he DOES NOT PLAY when it comes to anything jeopardizing the work he did to make UFC legitimate. In fact, the one time Brock Lesnar did some WWE style jawing after a fight (youtube brock lesnar coors light) and shit on sponsors Dana shut him the fuck down. I believe his words were something like "if that mother fucker ever tries to pull any WWF stuff in here again, he is GONE I don't care who he is." This when he was the champion.

I have no idea what wrestling even is.

awesome!

Posted by SpiderJerusalem

Shame they didn't wait until NXT: Takeover was over to record this. It would have been nice to see them talk about good wrestling for once.

Posted by andrewf87462

It's always good listening to these. Stone Cold's podcast is pretty good as well.

Posted by Bboboo

So much has happened in Wreslting, can't wait!

@milkman: For all the talk about NXT, most "internet fans" don't seem very happy with WWE right now. I'm sure you understand the distinction between internet fans and normal fans in general, not all fans of wrestling fellow the wrestling gossip on the net etc.

Posted by Milkman

@amyggen: I would argue that these internet fans have very good reason to not be happy with the product right now. I just have issue with this idea that they can never make these people happy. When they do a good job, the internet responds. When they don't do a good job, they don't.

"It's like walking onto a porn set and leaving un-fucked" may be the greatest line in GB history.

Only just started the episode, but the Super Fire Pro X Premium intro music is setting my expectations high.

I need this right about now.

Posted by EricSmith

I hope Jeff doesn't talk about how "all of wrestling is bad" because main roster WWE stuff is awful. It's like saying music sucks because modern country is like being screwed by a salty dildo.

equally you could not take him so seriously

Jeff's laugh at the end of this = perfect

The best part is how the characters say Russell Mania in the trailer but the movie is called Russell Madness for reasons that I'm sure have absolutely nothing to do with the WWE legal department.

This simply isn't true though. Like with most sports or forms of entertainment, there is a giant disconnect between the average viewer and the people who are up to date on it on the internet, etc.

The % of people who watch Raw or Smackdown and then take to the internet to comment on it is incredibly low. Same with NFL fans, etc.

Posted by Milkman

@cthomer5000: We had this same conversation in the wrestling thread not that long ago but look at how many people chanted CM Punk during AJ's matches the last few months. The only one you would know that is if you were an "internet fan." It's largely an age thing. Obviously, kids and their parents don't know about this stuff but once you reach a certain age as a wrestling fan, you kind of are constantly aware of this stuff even if it's only a little bit.

Glad Jeff didn't succumb to the pressure to watch Total Divas because that shit seems weird and sad.

Posted by DougCL

cant wait for next episode to hear the guys' thoughts on NXT and *sigh* TLC...

Needs more luchadeer

Yup and it's true. Goddamn use the fucking ladder, would you please?

Posted by AMyggen

Great episode!

Posted by I_Stay_Puft

Alex is right, Journey 2 is fuckin terrible but The Rock has some talent.

Posted by BlueWolverine

Fuck Total Divas. It's a terrible show. My mother watches it (she even records it) and every time I walk by and witness what's going on, it just makes be hate what the WWE has turned into.

This podcast made me laugh towards the end.

Posted by jmiwtsn

Does anyone know what the music at the start and the end is from?

Posted by CLiC

Been looking forward to this one!

Posted by Fox318

@cthomer5000: except wrestling is the only one where the people who make the product have contempt for their fans.

Even on the powerbombcast anyone who is a fan of the product needs to stop because "wrestling is dumb"

Posted by LegendaryChopChop

Meh-ven over a possible MAVEN joke? I don't know what to think.

Posted by xite

Someone needs to contact King Cuerno immediately and tell him to put a luchador mask on his deer head.

Edited by VierasTalo

I really hope this is a podcast about MAVEN'S DROPKICK

Edited by buemba

Alex's story in the end wasn't even embarrassing given his age at the time, but the way he told it and the reactions it got had me in tears.
