Thumbtacks & Screwjobs – Episode 3

6 Submitted by on Mon, 06 June 2016, 14:59

Goodbye Heel Heat, hello Thumbtacks and Screwjobs! Don’t worry, it’s still the same hour of wrestling talk with Gene and Richard, as they ponder the new-found freedom and free agent status of Cody Rhodes, examine the mystery push of Dan Brooke, and wonder who taught The Revival to cut such perfect promos for their gimmicks. Plus they look back on Extreme Rules, forward to NXT: The End, weigh the pros and cons of the brand split, and continue to be blown away by the long, slow decline into madness that is … TNA on Pop!

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.

    Nice show but damnit I wanted to hear you talk about the sale of TNA.

    • Richard_Whittaker

      We may well have a dedicated TNA show soon. Y’know, if it still exists.

      • El Pollo Guerrera

        TNA or the show?

  • I’d say Dana’s big push is largely due to Emma getting injured – having Emma, Dana and Charlotte as a pretty formidable faction would’ve made a lot more sense than this wierd pairing we’re stuck with now.
    Also, kudos on getting the topics a little more up to date this time.

    • Richard_Whittaker

      Yeah, we had some technical issues with the first two episodes that delayed their posting, but don’t worry, we’ll be up to date from now on!

      And my gut is that they put Dana with Charlotte to give her something to do after Emma. Now it means that we have this long, slow, pointless Becky/Natalya v Charlotte/Dana feud that feels like a holding pattern until we get past the draft. Sadly, Emma could have made Dana a star. Now she’s the weird fourth wheel.
