Aussie Top 3 – Episode 10: Intercontinental Champions

Welcome to AT3 on The Steel Cage, where our Down Under contingent fights off the Drop Bears to discuss their Top 3 of a variety of wrestling topics.

The WWF / WWE Intercontinental Championship has a long and storied history. But when the billy boils down to it, which of its former title holders cut the mustard when we chose our elusive Aussie Top 3?

Some of this episode’s choices are likely to surprise you more than a redback on the toilet seat, so (drop) bear with us while we figure out our new tech and bring you yet another edition of AT3.

We’ll see you Down Under.

Hosted by: ‘Captain Boomerang’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13).

Featuring: ‘Little Sherbie’ Stacey Herbert (@littlesherbie) & ‘Stinga’ Steve Wray (@stinga57).

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 104: Cobra Kai Seasons 1 & 2

You asked for it, so here it is! It took a while, but FINALLY, Unfunny Nerd Tangent rates and reviews the nostalgic show that’s brought sentimental memories flooding back to even the most cynical karate-dojo masters – Seasons 1 & 2 of Cobra Kai.

Retro-sequels and long-time-reunions are tough to get right, especially in this day and age of the complete reboot (and rip-off). But as we all know, the original is usually the best, so when we sat down to discuss why Cobra Kai has taken the world by storm (for young and old), we were swamped with potential tangents to delve into.

What have Johnny and Daniel been up to these past 35 years? Does a new generation of ‘karate kids’ live up to the mantle of their forbearers?  And what happened to Mr. Miyagi?

Well, we flipped the script, dove into the back of the cement truck and cranked up the glam metal for this one to prove one way or another whether ‘Mercy is for the Weak’ or not.

Also Diora Baird.

Hosted by: ‘Captain Boomerang’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13).

Featuring: ‘SuperJew’ Jared Robinovitz (@SuperJew75) & ‘Blue’ Matt Morales (@matt_morales).

Music by: Poison & Joe Esposito.

If you’re going to compete, you need the right attire. So get yourself an Unfunny Nerd Tangent shirt! Because as we all know… Mon Milfma is ‘the best around’!

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 103: Bill & Ted Face the Music

Bill & Ted Face the Music be excellent to each otherWe were supposed to unite the world in nerddom. According to George Carlin, a podcast created by Tansley and Agne will save reality as we know it, uniting humanity across all time. If only we could get it done in 90 minutes.

Good thing we have a time machine, because we’re going all the way back to 1989 in San Dimas, California (which looks conspicuously like the suburbs of Phoenix) to celebrate Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Then we’re cheating death, giving melvins to evil robot us-es and definitely not covering KISS as we dial up Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey from 1991.

And finally, we drop the old phone booth in the nightmarish hellscape of 2020. After a most unprecedented 29-year hiatus, Bill S. Preston, Esq., and “Ted” Theodore Logan are wild dads ready to unite the world against a most heinous dearth of new movie releases.

Reuniting an almost-too-Bill Alex Winter and a maybe-not-Ted-enough Keanu Reeves, Bill & Ted Face the Music shows us the inseparable slacker icons still struggling to fulfill their musical destiny (in maybe a little bit of a Bogus Journey retcon). And as their fairytale marriages near a breaking point, the future calls with a hard deadline.

So lick the Cheetos dust off your fingers and hop into your time machine — whether it looks like a vintage phone booth or a sleek adult massager — because we’ve got a band to assemble and a song to not technically steal.

Te adoro, Guillermo.

Hosted by: ‘Waterloo’ Tim Agne (@timagne)

Featuring: ‘Station!’ Greig Tansley (@greigt13)

Music by: Big Pig and KISS.

Ted, what are you doing with that Unfunny Nerd Tangent shirt? This is a history report, not a babe report. But Bill, Mon Milfma is a historical babe!

Aussie Top 3 – Episode 9: Non-American Wrestlers

Welcome to AT3 on The Steel Cage, where our Down Under contingent fights off the Drop Bears to discuss their Top 3 of a variety of wrestling topics.

To celebrate ‘A-Bomb’ Adam Hess gaining his Aussie citizenship, we devoted our 9th episode to our Top 3 Non-American Wrestlers.

But what exactly makes an American? Is it where you’re born? Or is it where you’re bred? Is your heritage? Or where your parents are from?

Either way, we covered the globe to deliver our favourites, and while some were obvious, some most certainly were not.

So pledge your allegiance to the Queen, then check out Episode 9 of Aussie Top 3.

We’ll see you Down under.

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 102: DC FanDome Reactions

There’s a lot coming from Warner Brothers and DC, but will it be any good?

DC FanDome happened online over the weekend, where a host of trailers and news was dropped / announced, so we thought we’d dive in and see what we all thought.

We looked at the new cast / character reveals for The Suicide Squad, argued about the trailer for The Batman, and then went through the highs and lows of the new trailers for Wonder Woman 1984 and the ‘long-awaited’ Justice League: The Snyder Cut.

Will the Americans ever be able to see these in the theater? Who knows? But for now, you can listen to our reactions to the latest DC news on Episode 102 of Unfunny Nerd Tangent.

Oh, and grow up, bro.

Hosted by: ‘Captain Boomerang’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13).

Featuring: ‘SuperJew’ Jared Robinovitz (@SuperJew75) & ‘Javelin’ Tim Agne (@timagne).

Special guest: Mike Seibert (@MikeSibertRadio).

Music by: Nirvana / Samuel Kim Music & The Ramones.

She’s might not be as great as the Razor Ramones, but purchase your very own Unfunny Nerd Tangent shirt, featuring Mon Milfma! She’ll make you longer than The Snyder Cut!
