We kick the episode off with talk of the Royal Rumble, possbly the worst booked match in WWE history. We talk about how they can salvage the situation with Roman Reigns and more Raw type stuff. We also try to talk TNA, an episode so forgettable that we cannot. Which seems to be a problem with TNA. (I should save this for Episode 81.)

After a break, we talk a pair of 20 year old Raws, in particular for a couple of matches. But beyond Michaels vs. Marty and Bret vs. Kid, we also have some... uh... goodness with Tiny Tim, Bastion Booger, Men on a Mission, and about a million other things. Early Raws were pretty chaotic.

After we name our MVPs and LVPs, we reveal next week is Mike and Rex Watch Wrestling 3!

While the crew takes a Holiday break and works out some technical issues, enjoy this episode from the archives... of early December (Mike's note: sorry, holidays and illness are a crummy combination to get editing done).

We talk CM Punk in UFC, the state of WWE leading into TLCS, NXT and the awesomeness that was to come, and more.

After a break, it's a few really good matches and a bunch less so including one of the best main events of all time, Chi Town Rumble '89!

We name our MVPs and LVPs, and then discuss what we're talking on the next show!

We talk the Greatest Wrestler Ever project, CM Punk, people talking about CM Punk, whether Vince would address it on his show with Austin (spoiler: he did), Survivor Series, how Sting looked, future plans, TLC build and us being completely wrong on the card.

Mike's note: the first minute of audio or so explains what happened to Episode 75. Sometimes technology just sucks.

In this episode, we talk about Mike's in-person experience with Ring of Honor in San Antonio, including Christopher Daniels against Adam Cole and #TheNewStreak being broken. We talk a little about Michael Elgin's new ROH angle and more. From there, we talk Raw and it's build for Survivor Series. We also touch on TNA and their TV woes as well as the PWI report that preceded their new TV deal.

After a break it's Tables, Ladders, Chairs, and ugly moonsaults, as we are talking WrestleMania 25. Listen to Mike hate all over a well-loved match, we talk Money in the Bank, the Hardy Boyz, Ricky Steamboat being awesome, and a horrible main event and where it stands among the worst main events in WrestleMania history.

We name our MVPs and LVPs and reveal the show we're discussing next, Chi-Town Rumble '89!

THE FULL RESULTS IN A GOOGLE SPREADSHEET

We are joined by Jason from Wrestlespective and Mike K. from Basically a Sports Show.

Taking the date of the first WCW Monday Nitro, the birth of the Monday Night War, we each drafted a roste of 43. 35 spots for wrestlers, 1 booker, 1 play-by-play announcer, 1 color commentator, and 5 "Wild Card" spots, for extra wrestlers, managers, interviewers, or authority figures.

Enjoy the listen, and in a few days, be on the lookout for our Booking Sheets, where we each give a brief (or maybe not so brief) booking outline and our card for our WrestleMania-style event.

In this episode, we talk about the possible endgames for Rusev(with our personal choice being THE BIG GUY). We also talk John Cena vs. Dean Ambrose, the way Randy Orton and Seth Rollins were involved, and the way Hell in a Cell has shaped up.

Although we didn't watch TNA Bound for One Night Only, we did both watch Impact and had opinions on the TNA booking.

After a small break, we talk AWA Super Sunday. Lots of armbars, a young scuzzy looking Brutus Beefcake, and a can't miss Hulk Hogan moment the AWA horribly, horribly missed on.

We name our MVPs and LVPs. Our next show will be our next Fantasy Draft. Set September 4, 1995, the birth of the Monday Night War. We'll be joined by Mike from Basically a Sports Show and one other yet to be finalized drafter.

In this episode, we kick off with Raw talk, including the news (at the time) of John Cena vs. Dean Ambrose at the Hell in the Cell PPV. We go over the in-ring action of Raw, before taking a break.

When we come back, it's foreshadowing, JR working a smark heel gimmick, an incredible Hart-Austin match, Sid's best match ever, the debut of some "Rocky Maivia" guy, a horrible surprise partner, and much more, as it's Survivor Series 1996!

We name MVPs and LVPs and then reveal the next show we'll be talking, AWA Super Sunday 1983!

In this episode, we start off with a disagreement over Raw and specifically, Dean Ambrose. Is he becoming the next great anti-hero or is it too Bugs Bunny? We also talk Cesaro and if he'll ever win a title again, Bray Wyatt and the direction his character is going, and more.

We also talk sub-ROH lighting in TNA, Austin Aries making dumb decisions, Havok getting the main event spot, and their Bound for Glory lineup and how they completely TNA'd it.

After a break, it's Sheephearders, Scorpions, and Russian Bears. No, it's not the worst petting zoo you've ever seen, it's Clash of the Champions III: Fall Brawl! Can good wrestling overcome bad finishes? Is John Ayers the best promo of all time? (the answers are yeah, kinda and no. Just no.)

We name our MVPs and LVPs and reveal which show we're watching next week, Survivor Series '96!
