Post-Wrestlemania blues abound as Gene and Richard feel shortchanged by WWE’s Payback PPV, panic about Backlash, get excited for New Japan versus ROH, and feel a little smug about being on the Keith Lee train early. Plus Shibata, Honma, hating the Hangman’s DDT, forecasting the future of the Bullet Club, and the question on everyone’s lips: why Jinder?

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    Great show, love listening to you two ramble about this stuff. Whenever I hear Richard day “ding ding”, I also hear JR screaming “Somebody ring the damn bell, that man’s got a family!”

    With the “WWE Great Balls of Fire” PPV, what other song titles do you think could be used as PPV titles? My choice is “Impact Wrestling: What Have I Done To Deserve This?”

    • Richard Whittaker

      Good choice. Also, next time the roster looks thin because of injuries, they should go with Everybody Hurts.
