Ben celebrates his 50th episode by welcoming independent wrestler Thomas Shire onto the show. @NotThatShire discusses his training with Dory Funk Jr., wrestling in Florida and Texas, and the @STLAnarchy Strong Style Series coming up on August 8th. A fun show so check it out! 

Rory McNamara is back to root around the attic for the very best (and today, almost certainly the very worst!) the Home Video Classics section of the WWE Network has to offer. Rory himself has the pick today - with poor old Ben Locke having to accompany him through a dissection of 'Villains Of The Squared Circle'! 

 
Fair warning for fans of Captain Lou Albano, jelly rolls and/or terrible Coliseum Videos from 1986: This might not be the show for you!  So dust off your VCR, pop in the tape, reset the timer to 0000 and - best you can - enjoy!

GWCW Podblast #3

On the third installment of the GWCW Podblast Series, Drew and Ryan take a look at the Marquis Of Queensbury Cup series between Ric Flair and Lord Steven Regal. The boys discuss each round, and have a few tangents on the separate universes of WCW programming, how to appropriately rank and judge the series, and the beauty of 1994 WCW! 

This week Scott & the Doctor talk about the history of the NWA's tag team titles. From the original Minnesota Wrecking Crew, to the Russians to the Rock & Roll Express, some of the greatest tag teams of all time held these titles. The guys also discuss Eddie Kingston's move to AEW, and some other future episodes. So sit back and enjoy the newest Saturday Special!

In this week's episode of Row 1, Seat 1, Ben welcomes Paradigm Pro Wrestling promoter Gary Wilson! Gary discusses his love of UWFI and Japanese wrestling, and how that prompted him to promote a UWFI Rules tournament at @ParadigmProWres. Ben and Gary then break down the promotion's Heavy Hitters 2 card from last week. A fun show! 

After working their way through the GWWE list, it’s time for Ryan and Cindy to set their sights south and begin work on the Greatest WCW match ever list. Ryan gives Cindy a very brief history lesson on the NWA/JCP/WCW timeline, before settling into looking at some matches. They look at a group of Great American Bash and Beach Blast/Bash at the Beach matches. The duo also discuss Sting and his similarity to the Ultimate Warrior, the Dayton metropolitan area, Dusty Rhodes on commentary, a very young Rey Mysterio plus possibly the two most important WCW matches of all time. So sit back, enjoy and watch out because there might be a LADY! A LADY IN THE MEN’S BATHROOM!
