It wasn’t his auntie, he clearly states it was his dad’s sister.

#ClassicWrestling watch along?

Triple A 09-27-2021 08:57 PM

Would love to watch those...

Bad News Gertner 09-27-2021 09:02 PM

I've seen all but #4. They are pretty crazy. I remember ordering FMW and Big Japan comp videos off tape list in the late 90s

Seanny One Ball 09-28-2021 07:51 PM

Hayabusa looked so fucked just before he died...

Honestly the most depressing image search ever.

drave 09-29-2021 09:53 AM

Did Ken beat him?

erickman 10-01-2021 07:44 PM

sabu and mike vs the yakusa, that is a good ep.

Bad News Gertner 10-01-2021 08:18 PM

FMW episode was pretty good. Still haven't seen the Kanyon one.

Seanny One Ball 10-02-2021 03:44 PM

The Kanyon episode won’t blow your mind.

Seanny One Ball 10-02-2021 06:57 PM

FMW episode was a lot better than I thought it would be.
Onita is a cartoonishly nefarious Jap... Terry Funk is just a sweet little old man now... damn

Seanny One Ball 10-02-2021 06:58 PM

Liked the bit where The Sheik nearly died. Very funny stuff.

Idiots the lot of them.

Supreme Olajuwon 10-05-2021 09:03 PM

Johnny K-9 episode this week. Had no idea who he was and I just read his Wikipedia entry. Holy shit I am all in on this episode.

#1-norm-fan 10-05-2021 09:14 PM

Apparently he was an insanely nice guy despite... Well, you’ll see.

Bad News Gertner 10-05-2021 10:33 PM

He wrestled in my city quite a bit for Border City Wrestling. I have a couple friends who worked and hung out with him. Everytime I've asked about him their immediate response is "dude, you wouldn't believe it of I told you". I know AL Snow has some stories and I hope he's on.

This episode is going to be incredible.

Just read the wiki too. Whoa mama. That dude was livin la vida loca.

Seanny One Ball 10-06-2021 12:31 PM

I have been waiting for this since he was profiled in a Crime In Sports podcast long before they decided to profile him on DSOTR. They got two or three hours out of him and it was just wild. This will easily be one of the better episodes if they have lined up any of his old biker gang.

I’m excited for it.

Juan 10-08-2021 03:25 AM

Wild episode. Was not familiar with K9 at all before this.

Damian Rey 2.0 10-08-2021 04:39 AM

Me neither. Had no idea who was. What a life. Honest to god shocked to find out he only died recently. Given how the story was going i was surprised he made it to 2000. This was one of the better eps this season.

erickman 10-08-2021 07:48 PM

good thing he did not last at smoky mt wrestling he might have joined the piecemakers

Seanny One Ball 10-09-2021 06:15 PM

That was a fantastic episode.

It had the best manly wife so far, the most reasonable ex cop, some ex biker said “That Hulk Hogan fella” to prove he knew his stuff and Lance Storm fucking cried!
Lots of great re-enactments too.

Truly an episode to savour.

Seanny One Ball 10-09-2021 06:20 PM

Man that was so good...

They really need to do an episode on Chyna at some point. I’m not sure why they haven’t yet. They would easily fill two episodes with that topic.

Vice did do a doc about her last year alive. Pretty fucked.

Damian Rey 2.0 10-10-2021 01:26 PM

Oh I didn’t know that. I’ll never to see if that’s on demand thru their app.

Seanny One Ball 10-10-2021 05:03 PM

Thanks for the heads up. I’ll try and find it.

Bad News Gertner 10-10-2021 08:48 PM

Fuck I gotta catch up on these.

Seanny One Ball 10-11-2021 12:44 PM

Chris Jericho might not be cool anymore but damn does he look great for his age

Damian Rey 2.0 10-11-2021 01:52 PM

Found the Chyna doc. It’s from their vice versa series.

Jordan 10-11-2021 01:56 PM

I am just thinking about episodes for further seasons...

Rob Feinstein/Ring of Honor: To Catch a Predator - this is a huge story that seems to have been lost in time, let's dig this dirt up! I'd love to see a good story on the origins of ROH as well.

ECW - Very broad topic that could probably be an entire season let alone a double episode. I'd like to see The Darkside guys spin on ECW.

Zandig - Obviously a niche choice and very unlikely but this guy is fucking interesting. I don't know a lot about him but I do know the story where they tried to interview him for Nick Gage or someone else. Dude is insane and probably has a lot of horror stories.

Hulk Hogan - He's just a giant fraud so a big expose shitting on him would probably be really fun to watch.

CM Punk - Not likely to happen now that he's in AEW but I could see a CM Punk/WWE medical story episode.

Bad News Gertner 10-11-2021 03:49 PM

It's obscure but I'd love them to take a deep dive into the Inoki vs Muhammad Ali match and all the shenanigans.

Seanny One Ball 10-11-2021 07:39 PM

Is it obscure?

I don’t need any more wasted episodes. Let’s get to the meat of it.

Plane crashes are more interesting than plane rides from hell. Ric Flair could win all of his sympathy back in one episode.

Bad News Gertner 10-11-2021 08:30 PM

Not for us, but the average fan has zero idea about that match.

Seanny One Ball 10-11-2021 10:04 PM

I dispute your take!

Supreme Olajuwon 10-11-2021 10:14 PM

It’s pretty famous in wrestling circles, but are you going to tell me “World’s Most Famous Athlete Has Career Ruined By Japan’s Most Famous Knee Kicker” isn’t a story? If so, I question your judgment.

Bad News Gertner 10-11-2021 10:16 PM

Chuck Wepner is still alive and he fought Andre that night. Different location. Inoki is still kicking. Stan Hansen is alive and well. Ivan Putski and Kevin Sullivan.There's pieces of the puzzle still remaining

I think people know the match but not all the behind the scenes craziness.

Supreme Olajuwon 10-11-2021 10:31 PM

I think there’s a decent argument that Ali is the most famous athlete in the history of the world. You can’t tell his story without talking about how Inoki fucked up his legs

Bad News Gertner 10-11-2021 10:36 PM

100% yes. Maybe Michal Jordan.

weathered vine 10-12-2021 01:59 AM

Prob MJ.

Pretty sure this won't happen until after Hogan is dead. Then, we're guaranteed to have at least three different docs about how full of shit he was outside of also being a worldwide pop culture phenomenon.
