Aussie Top 3 – Episode 13: Best / Worst Stolen Gimmicks

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.

Let’s face it, not a lot in the world of professional wrestling / sports entertainment can be touted as ‘original’, but every now and then something particular comes along that we can’t help but feel we’ve seen before.

Good or bad, whether it’s an homage, a fresh take or a total rip-off, many gimmicks and characters can sometimes seem somewhat… stolen.

So, who better to sink to a new level to discuss the all-out gimmick infringements on display these days, than your friendly team of Southern Continental instigators?

No one, that’s who. So gear up for lucky number 13 with the latest instalment of AT3.

We’ll see you Down Under.

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

Featuring: ‘Little Sherbie’ Stacey Herbert (@littlesherbie) & Adrian Trinchera (@TrinAmberyse).

Aussie Top 3 – Episode 11: Best Debuts

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 way a wrestler initially appears to an audience is an all-important step in helping them get over. So for this episode, we took a look at our Top 3 Debuts of all time.

Whether it was an altogether new face on the scene, or a veteran turning up in another promotion, or even that young talent finally being given a decent chance by jumping ship, we went over what we thought made an impact from day one.

Crank it up because this one goes to eleven, it’s another instalment 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 106: The Boys season 2

Season 2 of The Boys has hit and no matter what your take was, it certainly wasn’t predictable. Fresca?

Join us as we return to The Seven, Vought International and The Church of the Collective to discuss all the head-popping hilarity and whale-deep gore of the latest season.

GoPro blackmail, the ultimate Übermensch, Almond Joys and most of all…  all the C-Bombs you can shake a love sausage at, this season had it all.

And next year we get Jensen Ackles.

So don’t be a toxic personality, pass the Fresca (now exploding baby free) and enjoy episode 106 of Unfunny Nerd Tangent: The Boys, Season 2.

Please sponsor us.

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

Featuring: ‘SuperJew’ Jared Robinovitz (@SuperJew75), ‘The Deep’ Tim Agne (@timagne) & ‘The Mighty’ Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage).

Special Guest: ‘Alpha Magnus’ Toby Hixon (@AlphaMagnus – Instagram / @AlphaMagnus – Twitter)

Unfunny Nerd Tangent 105: Mean Girls

Mean Girls mall scene

Get in, loser, we’re podcasting. That’s right — we’re talking about Mean Girls. And oh my God, we love your skirt.

After a made-for-TV sequel and like a bajillion memes, this teen comedy classic is now old enough to be a junior in high school itself. Tina Fey’s script remains as funny as ever, and watching Mean Girls in October 2020 raises some timely questions about how we should feel when a bully gets hit by a bus. It’s just a shame that our tickets to the Broadway musical got canceled.

So slather on the foot cream, cut two holes in your shirt and unwrap a Kälteen Bar — it’s time to make out with a hotdog and hope we can sit with the band geeks.

Wait, what?

Hosted by: “Mrs. Norbury” Tim Agne (@timagne).

Featuring: “Gretchen” Greig Tansley (@GreigT13) and “It’s pronounced like Katie” Emily Parker (@emilyparkerhere).

Music by: The Mean Girls & Kelis.
