Podcast Episode 320: Elimination Chamber 2018 Preview

We like surprises. Monday’s episode of RAW was a heck of a pleasant surprise. They tried something different, and it worked. Seth Rollins went from “kinda stale” / “don’t care” to a wrestling god in a matter of 65 minutes, and general excitement for Sunday’s main event rose significantly. Is the general consensus of Roman Reigns winning and going on to face Brock Lesnar still going to happen? We talk about that and some possible alternatives that might work quite nicely…

Meanwhile, SmackDown continues to struggle as a television show. We had some fun watching it in person, but we honestly had a lot more fun during the dark match main event where KO / SZ / Roode / Nakamura all showed sides of themselves we don’t get to see much of on TV.

In addition, the Mixed Match Challenge and 205 Live’s Cruiserweight Championship Tournament both completed their first round this week in Phoenix. Plenty to discuss as we head into Sunday. The road to New Orleans continues..

Featuring: Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag), ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman), ‘Hot Podcast Garbage’ Sprung (@jasprung), and ‘Super Jew’ Jared (@SuperJew75).

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 40: Batman – The Dark Knight Returns

 

 

Was our first Batdads: The Animated Podcast too family-friendly for you? Well, get ready for the dark, gritty reboot as we take apart the ambitious animated adaptation of possibly the most influential Batman story ever told: Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. This isn’t a podcast — it’s an operating table.

We mine TDKR for parenting advice, decide which Robocop lines we want Batman to say, break down the best Joker laughs and thoroughly examine Frank Miller’s favorite place to draw swastikas. Sorry about that last one.

Hosted by ‘Definitely see Black Panther’ Tim Agne (@timagne).

Featuring ‘Drop Bear Man’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13) and ‘Long Halloween in Reseda’ Derek Montilla (@cap_kaveman).

Music by: Christopher Drake.

CJAE 51: Beard-Based Offense!

It’s been a tough week.  Pro wrestling is a bit of a garbage fire right now.  Captain Jack (@JackHeartless) & Chris (@BrasilianFury) hope to make it a little bit better by breaking down the 3rd and final New Beginning event from Osaka-Jo on February 10th.

Highlights include Okada’s 600th day as IWGP Heavyweight Champion, SANADA’s best singles match to date, Naito spitting, Kitamura chopping, Blue Justice talkin’ trash, Taichi and his punchable face moving up to heavyweight,  Ospreay and Hiromu going crazy, BUSHI trying to cut Gedo, and a CAT NARRATOR.

Sponsored by the NEW Captain Jack Heartless tees, now available for PRE-ORDER at https://paypal.me/CaptJackHeartless/25.

Opening theme by Lemi and the Captain.

Closing theme by Ayumi Nakamura (@ayumi_nakamura).

Podcast Episode 319: Get These Hands

RAW? Good (BRAUUUUNNNN!!!!).

Mixed Match Challenge? Good (Lana is the best… Lana number one! *clap clap*).

205 Live? Good (We knew you had it in you, Drew Gulak!).

SmackDown? …not so much. From being THE show to being an afterthought without direction, characters to attach to, or anything resembling a well thought out television show… the blue brand has been a disappointment as of late. It all sort of hinges on what they’re doing with Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan. Does it come to a conclusion at Mania?

Meanwhile, 205 Live has gotten that CWC tournament mojo back! Drake Maverick is a better GM than Kurt Angle could ever wish to be.

CJAE 50: My Favorite Feud – Piper vs. Flair

Holy CRAP, we made it to Episode 50!  To celebrate, Captain Jack (@JackHeartless) brings back My Favorite Feud with the assistance of this week’s guest, @ComicBlackBook co-owner and host of Your Mom’s Basement, Kirk McPherson (@KirkLikesStuff).  Kirk chooses the sprawling, on-again-off-again rivalry between “Nature Boy” Ric Flair and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper as his favorite, so in true CJAE fashion, a deep dive of the timeline ensues, from their first match against one another in 1973, all the way to their last match together, as teammates, in 2006.  There are plenty of twists and turns along the way, as they talk about the rise of each performer independently of the other, how the feud would re-ignite across different decades and territories, and what makes their bond inside and outside of the ring so unforgettable.

Opening theme by Lemi and the Captain.

Closing theme by Ayumi Nakamura (@ayumi_nakamura).
