Wrestling Mayhem Show 627: 10…9…8…

This week’s episode brought to you by Slice on Broadway, Occupy Pro Wrestling, and Indy Wrestling US!

Rob Johnston joins us to talk about some Dojo Pro wrestling. He, of course, is joined by our usual stable of ne’er-do-wells including Sorg, Dave Podnar, and Alex Kahrs as they talk this week in wrestling, including:WMS 7.17.2018

  • That’s right, we’ve kidnapped Rob Johnston from the AwesomeCast podcast so we can talk Dojo Pro (among other things).
  • Extreme Rules was in Pittsburgh, and we are once again reminded why we can’t have nice things.
  • Sorg was so close at Extreme Rules that he almost took a pancake to the face.
  • Dave heard Steelers chants come through the TV feed for Extreme Rules. Sorg recalls no such chants. Were they piped in? Hmmm.
  • Things we are thankful for – The Roman Reigns v Bobby Lashley match didn’t follow the Iron Man Match at Extreme Rules.
  • We didn’t see Elias in his hometown for Extreme Rules – despite the obvious Pittsburgh references throughout.
  • Sorg is sad he didn’t get an awesome Shinsuke v Jeff Hardy match.
  • THE CROWD GOT KICKED IN THE BALLS BY SHINSUKE!
  • Rob can FEEL the wrestling in Nashville.
  • We’re taking a few moments to remember Bruno Sammartino and the history of wrestling.
  • Speaking of our guest, Rob, it was great seeing him being pushed around in the ring on a Dojo Pro video on Facebook.
  • Rob Johnston is talking about some of the fun with Dojo Pro.
  • The biggest message from Rob Johnston – Dojo Pro is bingeable!
  • Rob has some thoughts on Joey Janela.
  • It’s convenient that we’re talking with Rob Johnston on THIS episode.
  • Rob had a chance to speak with Hulk Hogan a few years back.
  • Hulk Hogan is not the same as Terry Bollea. It’s important to make separations between characters and people.
  • Some heels get crap from fans for being heels, then Kevin Owens gets the spotlight at a Shania Twain concert.
  • This week’s Big Question: Which wrestling superstar needs to release an album next?
  • Mad Mike couldn’t be here this week – so he sent a Mad Mike Mail!
  • eFeds are a thing Alex Kahrs is explaining to us.
  • Sorg is headed to the Gathering of the Juggalos, and he’ll be seeing some interesting wrestling.
  • Joey Janela is apparently facing John Cena at the Gathering of the Juggalos.

Todd DeFazio of Idiot Radio returns to the show this week.  He is joined by Mad Mike, Mainstream Matt, Larry, and Sorg, as they’re on the heels of Money in the Bank.  This week’s topics include:

  • Reading Rainbow meets Wrestling with Nino Wrestles the World.
  • Sorg may be cashing in MITB on Idiot Radio’s belt.
  • NXT Takeover was this past weekend – a/k/a I’m sorry Sunday night show.
  • Matt likes NXT because it has a happy ending.
  • It was nice to see Daniel Eads make a cameo appearance (and get his butt kicked a little) on NXT Takeover.

  • Big Cass and WWE are going their separate ways?
  • James Ellsworth returned – the highlight of MITB!
  • So….Rhonda Rousey, guys.
  • WWE is the equivalent of wrestling Walmart.
  • How do you know if you’re in an abusive relationship with wrestling? Asking for a friend.
  • When it Reigns it bores! (Thanks for that one Idiot Radio!)
  • Sorg is thinking that this year’s MITB (men’s match) was solid. It pretty much had everyone expected to be in it, and it wasn’t obvious who was going to win it.
  • Sorg is pitching Rhonda Rousey as the Andre the Giant of the current women’s division.
  • In a time long, long away – in a galaxy far, far away, the UK Tournament is happening in some capacity.

  • If anything happens to Xavier Woods in WWE, he’s got a solid background to be a videogamer.

  • To clarify, we’re talking Bubba the Bulldog, not Bubba the Love Sponge as an inspiration for Todd.
  • This week’s Big Question: Along the lines of F***/Marry/Kill – If you could hire someone to WWE, fire someone from WWE, and return a WWE alum, who would your picks be?
  • Rusev Day happened to fall on Rey Mysterio Day!
  • We saw the obituary for El Jefe, and we’re talking some Lucha Underground observations.
  • In Lucha Underground we trust!
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?
  • Billed from the back of the Hot Topic, it’s Aleister Black.
  • When you realize of the Enzo / Cass/ Carmella trio that Carmella is the one who’s left behind – with Gold. *Mind Blown*
