The still living Benoit child was very interesting in all fairness. Even just getting a good look at him was quite good.

Bad News Gertner 03-25-2020 07:21 PM

Looks like The Brawl For All episode is after New Jack followed by Jimmy Snuka and Nancy Argentino which I have a feeling may be the most jaw dropping episode they've done yet.

Evil Vito 03-25-2020 07:27 PM

That’s gonna be fascinating. Not sure how you tell that story properly without coming to the conclusion that there’s no fucking way Vince wasn’t trying to help with the cover up.

Seanny One Ball 03-25-2020 07:49 PM

The New Jack episode is going to be full of exaggeration. I look forward to it.

I dont know how Jericho could be involved but I want him in it

Bad News Gertner 03-25-2020 09:01 PM

They were in ECW together.

True, but I dont think Jerico was in ECW at the time of the Mass Transit incident, so yeah he could be involved talking about New Jack but he wouldn't know directly about the incident which I assume is the focus of the episode

Bad News Gertner 03-25-2020 10:38 PM

There much more to New Jack that the Mass Transit incident. And yeah Jericho debuted in WCW in August 96. Mass Transit was Nov 96.

Bad News Gertner 03-25-2020 10:39 PM

He's also doing narration on the Snuka and Dr.D David Schulz episodes and he definitely wasn't around for that.

Jericho did wrestle Snuka at WM though lol

Bad News Gertner 03-26-2020 12:23 AM

Lol true

owenbrown 03-29-2020 02:01 AM

In hindsight, watching this, Benoit should have need much more help from say the WWE after Eddie's death to maybe prevent this tragedy.

McLegend 03-29-2020 08:46 AM

The being in Eddie’s bed and holding/crying into his pillow was a little weird.

New Jack is fucking insane. Saw him at countless shows around town over the years.


Favorite was a "fans bring the weapons" night, which as you can possibly imagine, was fucked up. A bat with actual barbed wire that made Lucille from TWD look like a toy, someone made a "crown of wire" which was also used.


There was a triple threat with New Jack, Bullet and some other older white guy, cant remember his name. Anyway.... NJ and the old guy beat the fuck outta Bullet (he was super young and super green) until he was legit unconscious.


Old guy goes to leave, tells New Jack he was going to "whip his black ass" ANNNNNND all fucking hell broke loose.


He threw the dude into 5-6 rows of chairs that still had people sitting in them. Took something out of his pocket (a knife probably) and started cutting the dudes head all over the fucking place.


His music never stopped during this entire match, making it really seem like some crazy ass street fight. He walked out victorious leaving the place looking like a murder happened. It was fucking crazy.

Seanny One Ball 03-29-2020 01:34 PM

Yeah he did have a great music gimmick, just playing it on repeat through all the carnage.

Emperor Smeat 03-29-2020 04:33 PM

Finally got around to watching the Benoit episode and it easily replaces the Von Erichs as my favorite from the series.

Only weak episode in the series so far was the Montreal Screwjob mainly because a good portion of it devolved into Cornette and Russo just bickering about each other.

owenbrown 03-29-2020 09:18 PM

the Moolah episode was very awkward

Damian Rey 2.0 03-29-2020 09:36 PM

The moolah episode, while good, didn't seem to know which direction it wanted to go in.

Emperor Smeat 03-29-2020 09:56 PM

Yeah, they did go a little overboard with trying to cover both sides of the issue especially by including that one guy who runs a Moolah fan club.

Same for that one former wrestler who went on a tangent about her or any other of Moolah's talent being associated with prostitution because of Moolah's accusations.

If Luna and Sweet Georgia Brown were still alive, that would have made the episode better overall considering the accusations of what Moolah did to them.

Damian Rey 2.0 03-29-2020 10:03 PM

The one lady whoop had the native American garb and thrashed her neck seemed to insinuate that awful things about moolah are true but then at the end seemed to be saying nobody should say shit cuz thru don't know the truth or something like that.

Triple A 03-30-2020 08:22 PM

Just watched it, had me crying

Also love Chris Jericho even more now

I can't fucking wait for the episode on Herb Abrams and the UWF.

Mr. Nerfect 03-31-2020 07:27 PM

I'm curious to see how the Snuka/Nancy episode covers possible Vince involvement.

Bad News Gertner 03-31-2020 07:36 PM

Wait to you hear about all the shady shit involved in Lehigh County. It'll blow your mind.

Mr. Nerfect 03-31-2020 08:07 PM

This is going to be fascinating.

Bad News Gertner 03-31-2020 08:38 PM

I won't spoil it for everyone but it's VERY shady shit.

I got really interested in this story like 7-8 years ago after listening to Muraco talk about it on Kayfabe Commentaries Timeline 1983. You could just tell there was more to the story. I've read up on it a lot and have listened to a few podcasts on it. It's going to be a VERY bad look for Vince when it comes out. Here's the Muraco clip. Segment is at the 3:30 mark


Mr. Nerfect 03-31-2020 08:55 PM

I'm really surprised that Vince has not been taken down yet. The guy's got to have so many skeletons in his closet, and it's not like the guy has been careful.

Emperor Smeat 03-31-2020 09:26 PM

Its mostly due to a mix of wrestling low rep in the mainstream and entertainment/sports industry and him cultivating decades worth of loyalty from those who worked for him and wrestling fans.

Plus, most of the real heat he's gotten in recent times was financial related in the sense investors were getting pissed WWE wasn't maintaining their skyrocketing value and less on ethical issues by WWE.

Bad News Gertner 03-31-2020 09:54 PM

Rewatching the end of the Benoit episode.

Does Dean Malenko have Parkinsons? He's very shaky.

Bad News Gertner 03-31-2020 09:56 PM

Oh shit, he does.

slik 03-31-2020 09:56 PM

This is a fascinating and quick read on the Snuka case, if ya want to read a $2.99 e-book. Like Gertner said, when more eyes are on this situation it could be very explosive. It is very, very shady.

Yeah, he revealed he's been suffering from it during one of the Starrcast conventions last year.

Bad News Gertner 03-31-2020 10:26 PM

Lol holy shit, members of Atlas Security on the New Jack episode. The most incompetent security staff ever.

Bad News Gertner 03-31-2020 10:36 PM

New Jack is amazing.

Bad News Gertner 03-31-2020 11:14 PM

Kind of a meh episode. Didn't really go over anything that most fans don't already know.

Brawl for All episode next week
That should be something. Prichard and Russo telling lie after lie.

I somehow never saw the vic grimes spot off the scaffold. It looked less worse than I thought it would

Damian Rey 2.0 04-01-2020 01:19 AM

Jesus I didn't now anything about the smoky mountain stuff. Good fucking grief lol.
