Captain Jack’s Armbar Emporium Ep. 33: NJPW G1 Climax, Nights 13-19!

Here it is…the home stretch of the best tournament in pro wrestling!  After 28 hours(?!) of tournament matches, Captain Jack Heartless (@JackHeartless) wraps up his coverage of G1 Climax 27, with help from special guest Owen Reynoldson (@owenreynoldson).  They give you the Top 5 from Nights 13-19, the Top 10 G1 matches overall, the tournament MVP, and plenty of speculation about what it all means as we begin the Road to WrestleKingdom 12 on January 4th, 2018!

Captain Jack’s Armbar Emporium Ep. 32: NJPW G1 Climax, Nights 7-12!

Captain Jack Heartless (@JackHeartless) & Sleeve Assassin (@SleeveAssassin) waste no time this week, and jump right back into the best tournament in pro wrestling, the G1 Climax!

Much like last week, they watch every tournament match from nights 7 through 12 in both blocks so you don’t have to, and each gives a Top 5.  Some of the choices may surprise you!

Tangents include why Okada may be having the Best Year Ever, how Nakamura and AJ leaving made the G1 grow, who will upset Kenny down the stretch, Ibushi’s apparent death wish, and our impending trip to meet Stan “The Lariat” Hansen!  Holy crap!!

Captain Jack’s Armbar Emporium Ep. 31: NJPW G1 Climax 27, Nights 1-6!

It’s the most wonderful tiiiiiime…of the yeeeeear!

It’s tournament season for pro wrestling, and Captain Jack (@JackHeartless) is joined by return guest Sleeve Assassin (@SleeveAssassin) to talk about this year’s iteration of the best tourney there is – the G1 Climax!

They’ve watched every A & B Block match from the first 6 nights of action, and will break down the best of the best shown, for those who have nowhere near that kind of time.  Also, stick around for the bonus PWG BOLA preview, Kawada’s above-average ramen skills, and even more love for the beautiful violence that is Bruiser Brody.  Enjoy!

The Beast vs The Heath

The Beast vs The Heath

Well, RAW happened.

That said, it’s SummerSlam week, and there’s plenty to talk about! From Sunday’s event itself to Evolve and NXT on Saturday, to the weekly CWC show, New Japan’s G1 Tournament, and beyond… There’s plenty of stuff going on in the world of wrestling, and I think we managed to touch on a lot of it.

A fun discussion this week – give it a listen before you get BBQ sauce all over your hands. You are BBQ’ing for SummerSlam, aren’t you?

Hosted by: Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag

Featuring: ‘Hot Podcast Garbage’ Sprung (@jasprung), Nick (@nick_connolly), and ‘The Beast from the Middle East’ Darrell Johnson (@zazzumplop).
