Bonus Episode: The Mega Show

September 14, 2017

It's a bonus episode as 3 podcasts collide to talk about the 3 things we have in common!

 

We combine 80's Picturehouse, Asiamania and Superbrawls to chat to the visiting Ben Wyatte who has come all the way from Tasmania to visit the UK!

 

We talk about the Norwich leg of his visit to the country, then whack on New Japan World and watch some matches from the 80's (covering 80's Picturehouse, Asiamania and Superbrawls, see?)

 

We'll return with our Fall Brawl episode in a couple of weeks, but for now enjoy...and don't whine because its not canon!

Other stuff happens.

It's WCW's hottest event of the Summer...it's the second annual (and final) Beach Blast!

 

Ric Flair goes for the big gold belt once again, the WCW Super Powers battle the Masters of the Powerbomb, Rhodes and Rude have an Iron Man match, and so much more!

Meanwhile, Cactus Jack is still missing. We play out the story so far as the episode goes along.

Episode 65: Clash of the Champions XXIII

June 22, 2017

It's a first for SuperBrawls as we leave the confines of HQ and do an outside broadcast. Expect some ambient noise as we record in the midst of a heat wave!

It's history in the making at the June 1993 Clash, as Ric Flair returns to action, teaming with Arn Anderson against the Hollywood Blondes!

The hype for Beach Blast rolls on as Sid, Vader and Rude battle Sting, Bulldog and Dustin!

Lord Steven Regal debuts!

And the search for Cactus Jack begins...where could he be, and what does Cleveland have to do with this?

Episode 64: Slamboree 1993

June 11, 2017

Well. That took a while. But we are finally back with a new episode and what better way to return than to take a look back at our favourite old boys who return for Slamboree 1993...The Legends Reunion!

 

Yes, Chris is finally reunited with his bae Wahoo McDaniel, and we see the likes of Nick Bockwinkel, Dory Funk Jr., Thunderbolt Patterson, Don Muraco and Dick Murdoch actually wrestle. It's every but as rancid as it sounds.

 

Elsewhere on the show, Davey Boy Smith locates Big Van Vader behind some pigeons and challenges for the WCW title, Arn and Barry collide for the NWA title, a big name returns to annihilate Van Hammer and a new member of the Four Horsemen debuts. Yeah it's THAT one. Urgh.

 

We also talk about what we've been up to! WWE in Norwich, Pro Wrestling Eve in London, CKY in Colchester, the Slam Dunk Festival and more!

Episode 63: Superbrawl III

April 22, 2017

It's time for the White Castle of Fear...it's time for Superbrawl III!

Sting and Big Van Vader collide in a huge strap match for the WCW title!

Windham and Muta battle for the NWA title!

Ric Flair returns!

Davey Boy Smith debuts!

On paper it looks to be one of the best shows we have ever covered...but how does it all play out? 

To offer more background on the shows, Thom has started watching all the TV leading up to them so expect more analysis about why the matches are happening! Also expect placement of random American TV ads!

And elsewhere, Thom talks Rev Pro Epic Encounters and Chris has a moan about Pizza Express.

Episode 62: Clash of the Champions XXII

April 9, 2017

It's the first Clash of the Champions of 1993 and there will be (a bit of a) Rage in the Thundercage!

We look at the 22nd instalment of the Clash, and all the story points that have been going on - Vader winning the title...and Cactus Jack turning face?

We have debuts, arm wrestling and possibly the most redundant and confusing cage match we have covered so far, as well as a few farewells...

One of which is Bill Watts, we talk about the reasons he went (depends who you ask) and his controversial Pro Wrestling Torch interview from 1991, and the knock on effect of us losing the voice of WCW!

We also have a chat about WrestleMania weekend (for more thoughts from Thom on that check out Episode 170 of the Asiamania podcast) and Chris has a jolly nice time at Hammerfest.

Episode 61: WCW/New Japan Supershow 1993

March 19, 2017

It's time for another trip to Tokyo for the third and final WCW and New Japan Supershow, and it really is a Fantastic Story!

A lot has been going on since last recording so we got the show watched and sat down earlier than intended to cover it all.

First up, we talk about the epic XWA weekender which included the moment that went truly viral around the world...Kota Ibushi and his fireworks! Thom was there in person and talks about the show, as well as the previous day in Colchester.

We also discuss the news that the WWE are bringing the UK Championship shows to Norwich, and the reaction from WAW. And we don't really hold back talking about THEM.

Then onto the main show, but we find out that the WCW presence this time isn't much which leads to an announcement about January 4th New Japan shows at the end!

Episode 60: WCW Slam Jam & Learning the Ropes

March 5, 2017

It's the end of 1992 on our timeline so the perfect time to tackle a couple of bonus bits, namely the Slam Jam album and 80's sitcom Learning the Ropes!

Yes, WCW also brought out an album in 1992 and yes, it was also called Slam Jam. Featuring the entrance music for all your favourites it's...something to behold! We talk about the album track by track.

As a little bonus, we review the first two episode of 80's wrestling sitcom Learning the Ropes. A generic American sitcom with added NWA wrestling stars!

Apologies for the quality of audio in the Learning the Ropes section, especially Chris' side...we were using Skype as a one off, but it's still totally listenable which is more than can be said for the Slam Jam album!

As we mention, if you want the links for the album or to watch the episodes and cannot find them on our social media please give us a shout!

Episode 59: Starrcade 1992

February 26, 2017

It's time for the 10th annual Starrcade 1992...whaaaa?

 

The Lethal Lottery/Battle Bowl format returns for it's second year in a reduced capacity but now with added rings. Will Sting make it 2 years in a row?

 

Sting also has to face his greatest adversary, Big Van Vader in the finals of the King of Cable tournament...WCW love their tournaments.

 

Elsewhere, WCW pull the old bait and switch with their world title match, Chono and Muta clash for the NWA title and Erik Watts continues to exist.

 

There's also a live commentary from us on the Battle Bowl Battle Royale! Watch along with us!

 

As it's the end of 1992 we run through the best and worst of the year. Our picks may surprise you (in some cases!)

 

And in non WCW stuff, Chris talks his Anthrax gig and Thom is shocked and appalled at WWE circa 2005!
