Vince totally paid someone off here, watching now

Bad News Gertner 04-16-2020 01:19 AM

He totally greased some pockets

Slik 04-16-2020 01:51 AM

I am looking forward to the dino bravo ep, I have always wanted to hear more about that

Bad News Gertner 04-16-2020 08:46 AM

Same here.

ozzman6669 04-16-2020 10:18 AM

They can get a lot of info for what his life was at the time but I wonder what kind of info they can get on the hit, don't think they can get mafia guys to talk and most of the Cotroni family got killed when the Rizzuto and the Hell's Angels took over

Seanny One Ball 04-16-2020 10:47 AM

Mob guys seemingly never shut the fuck up so I'm sure they'll have found somebody suitably shady to talk to.
I was surprised and pretty impressed that they got the cop to appear in the Snuka episode.

There always seems to be 1-2 people on these shows that you would not expect to be on there so who knows

Seanny One Ball 04-16-2020 12:03 PM

Wouldn't put it past them to have Martha for the Owen episode.

Seanny One Ball 04-16-2020 12:05 PM

Cornette and Russo come in to claim sole credit for the accident, each saying the other wouldn't have the foresight to kill a Hart like that.

I believe she is

drave 04-16-2020 01:10 PM

Holy shit at the Dino Bravo stuff.


I had no idea about ANY Of that. definitely tuning in

Bad News Gertner 04-16-2020 02:04 PM

Yeah it's a pretty crazy story and the one this season where there's not a ton of info out there

Gravy

Seanny One Ball 04-16-2020 02:49 PM

Season 3 is going to be a bunch of cripplings and sex offences surely. Maybe a plane crash or two...
All capped off by the steroid doctors.

Seanny One Ball 04-16-2020 02:50 PM

Rikidozan would be a good one actually.

ozzman6669 04-16-2020 11:14 PM

For season 3 maybe some of those could be interesting

Ric Flair plane crash
Art Barr (or every sex offender if there's not enough with Barr)
An episode on Yokozuna's life out of the ring could be good
Story of the territories system and if Vince is really the only reason it died
An episode on all Haku/Meng stories could be a good lighter episode

ozzman6669 04-16-2020 11:46 PM

Or maybe one episode on backyard wrestling, extreme hardcore shit and peoples without any training destroying their lives in front of 8 fans for 5 bucks and a cup of instant noodles !

Bad News Gertner 04-17-2020 12:05 AM

They gotta do one on Chris Adams

Seanny One Ball 04-17-2020 12:10 AM

If they did any real investigation into Haku I worry the bubble would burst and you'd see a lot of talk and a couple of police reports/statements but no really compelling evidence. Even if they could turn up a recipient of one of his beatings none of the jaw snapping, nose biting, eye gouging would look or sound as funny as the stories would have you believe.

Some poor jerk hobbles out with a hole where his eye should be... I dunno man.

Haku is better kept as a legend.

Probably better off legally too.

Seanny One Ball 04-17-2020 12:13 AM

Chris Adams does need one. I've heard a 2-3 hour podcast outlining his crimes and misadventures and it was some entertaining, crazy shit.

They'd have to get Austin.

I'd watch one on Taras Bulba/Bruiser Bedlam too. He was a contract killer and leader of some biker gang I think.

xrodmuc316 04-17-2020 02:12 AM

If be down for an episode on when a bunch of Marines beat up Shawn Michaels.

Seanny One Ball 04-17-2020 01:45 PM

I think a lot of cripplings and molestings will be in season 3.

Bad News Gertner 04-17-2020 03:40 PM

They really gotta do one on Jerry Lawler's arrest in the early 90s

Seanny One Ball 04-17-2020 03:50 PM

I honestly would struggle to watch that.
I know you know, but I doubt a lot of people know the actual full alleged details of that.

It's definitely true.

Bad News Gertner 04-17-2020 03:54 PM

I believe he only got charged with witness tampering at the end of the day. It's been a little bit since I've read about it.

It's pretty fucked. I think she ended up saying she told her bf that she slept with Lawler to get back at her bf. The whole story is fucked.

She was underaged in case some of you haven't heard the story.

Seanny One Ball 04-17-2020 05:44 PM

I think a few arms were twisted

Bad News Gertner 04-17-2020 10:04 PM

Not a huge Conrad Thomson fan, but he does an interview on Jr's feed with one of the guys from DSOTR regarding the Snuka episode and he brings up some really interesting behind the scenes stuff about Tonga Kid

ozzman6669 04-17-2020 11:03 PM

Just watched Bravo's episode preview and sadly I saw Jacques Rougeau. Raymond is pretty reliable on wrestling stories but Jacques is a great Bulshiter !

Can you elaborate?

Bad News Gertner 04-18-2020 12:20 AM

That when Tonga Kid told the story about how he was in the car with Snuka and Nancy the night of the murder how it caught the producers off guard because nobody had heard that before. They asked him about it over and over again to make sure he wasn't confused. They then figured out Tongs Kid wasn't aware of the story Snuka told the police.

Top 3 easily

ozzman6669 04-18-2020 02:16 AM

I really hope they got Rick Martel, I remember 5 or 6 years after the murder he did an interview in french and he really knew a lot of Dino's story after wrestling.

Juicy

Seanny One Ball 04-18-2020 03:33 AM

Gertner is so on top of the news that he posts news from a podcast he doesn't even want to listen to.

Seanny One Ball 04-18-2020 03:38 AM

If anyone has an interest there is a Conrad podcast mixed into his JR podcast feed called Dark Side Of The Podcast where he talks to the producers of Dark Side Of The Ring to further discuss episodes.

It is excellent.

I hope so. From what I've heard Martel is kinda done with wrestling and very rarely does any appearances so he would be a very nice get.

I remember Jacques was on Mooney's podcast and he went on this tangent the WWF forcing The Quebecers to lose the titles at Wrestlemania 10 and how that was the final straw

Lol they lost the match by count out.

Seanny One Ball 04-18-2020 10:06 AM

Jacques Rougeau was ahead of his time. A Rougeau reality show would have been epic back in the day.

French Canada is nuts wrestling-wise.
