In this episode, CM Punk on the Art of Wrestling, Sting in the WWE, and... well, a bunch of stuff. 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!

We open this show with Night of Champions talk, including Mike's issue with Dean Ambrose's return angle, a little more talk about Roman Reigns's surgery, and the rest of the show, including our thoughts on the women's match and the main event between John Cena and Brock Lesnar.

We then talk Raw, including the absolutely horrible Bella angle, which brings up the point that Stevie Ray is on twitter. Go tweet to him to come on Off The Top Rope!

Then there's some TNA talk.

After we name MVPs and LVPs for Night of Champions, we reveal which show we're watching next week, Clash of the Champions 3: Fall Brawl (muahahahahaha Rex).

This time, Rex is on the ball, and the playlist for the episode is right here.

In an attempt to keep the episode as true to the playlist as possible, it's very lightly edited, clipped only in places where we absolutely had to.

We dive in to NXT Takeover, talking about our feelings on the show and the debut of Hideo Itami or Kenta, the main event and the Bayley vs. Charlotte match, and then bring up Roman Reigns's hernia surgery, but hold off on much speculation just due to lack of information. Afte that, it's watching wrestling time, including ReDragon, Alex Shelley, Allysin Kay, Kenny Omega, AR Fox and more.

This week, in lieu of a traditional episode, we're going to do a post Night of Champions/Raw Newsbreak!

(sorry everyone, this episode sat finished for a few days and I realized I never threw it up.)

In this episode, we talk our excitemet for NXT Takeover 2: The Takeovering, NXT invading Raw, Jerry Springer on Raw, and more Monday night... "goodness" (well, there was some goodness).

We then talk production sheets, Graveyard matches, lots and lots of shoots and more, as it's Bash at the Beach 2000!

We name MVP and LVP, and later this week, we'll do part 2 of Mike and Rex Watch Wrestling!

In this episode, we talk the WrestleCrap-esque Growing Up Bella feud, the heel turn of Gold and Stardust, and more as we kick off with Raw. Then, we talk the things TNA is doing right, even if they're not that numerous, and the really excellent Jay Lethal-ACH match on Ring of Honor TV lately, although Mike refuses to apologize. We also talk about the plans for the WWE tag division going forward, including whether The Acension and the Realest Guys in the Room should come up as heels or faces.

After a break, it's early John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar, a six-man tag Raw worthy, Goldberg's WWE debut, Teddy Long's shoe, and a picture of Kurt Angle with gold medals stapled to it. Clearly important, important stuff as it's Backlash 2003!

We name our MVPs and LVPs and then reveal what we're watching for next week, Bash at the Beach 2000. Yeah, it's that one.
