Wrestling: Ep 20 - TLC Tag League Final Battle

I am already trained. JD is joined by a different Colin (ubertieguy) for this cast as we first talk about some more wrestlers signing with ROH, and then move into thoughts over the next batch of NXT call-ups to Raw and SD (0-26).
Our wrestler spotlight covers the revolutionary Dynamite Kid. We go over who he was, what he meant to wrestling, and how good he was especially his rivalry with Tiger Mask (26-41).

In this episode, we get to cover some interesting events coming out of the indie scene in the UK (41-58).
David Starr defended his title over in RPW at Cockpit 35, while Progress wrestling was busy releasing two chapters in 80 and 81 with a heavy focus on their tag team division.

Into tier 2 promotions, ROH had their final ppv of the year with a lot of send offs of the Elite leaving. Final Battle sure seemed to live up to its name (58-1:21). Finally, NJPW's tag league came to an end and the road to Wrestlekingom happened. What went down at tag league, and Ospreay and Ibushi had a moment (1:21-1:37).

WWE also had their final ppv of 2018 in TLC. The women lived up to the main event while some others sank the crowd. Also, a cage match happened in NXT. Quite a lot to discuss here (1:37-2:09).

We finish off the cast as we usually do with an episode of WCW Thunder (eps 14, 1998) the go home show before Spring Stampede. How will this one be (2:09-end)?
Cast completes with wrestler rankings and community shoutouts.

Retrocast: Ep 34 - Character Origins

More holiday cheer coming. This cast starts off with talking some Smash Ultimate and lots of opinions over an indie release titles To The Moon (0-31).
For our topic segment we discuss more bad news coming out of shady moves the gaming industry is making, but we do follow that up with talking about some of our favourite gaming characters (31-56).

Of course, our last theme for 2018 is all about games that featured a new character that we see in future games. Character Origins is important to establishing a franchise, but are the games any good (56-end)?

Anime: Ep 39 - Legend of the Galactic Heroes Eps 1-26 (with Andrew from Recovery of an Anime Junkie)

A good dictator or a corrupt democracy? In this podcast episode we are joined by Andrew from the Recovery of an Anime Junkie podcast in his second appearance. First, we have our usual housekeeping and our contest winner announcement (0-7).
We got some news like a new Rumiko manga, new Ghost in the Shell coming, and making fun of Andrew's three favourite anime in a call back to our very first anime episode (7-56).

In 1988, an OVA space opera series started and it went on to be regarded as one of the greatest anime of all time. That tile is called the Legend of the Galactic Heroes. We cover season one aka episodes 1-26, and we discuss, break down, and analyze this epic to the fullest extent we could (56-end).

Nobody is as tough as the chief. We introduce this cast with a little Scott Hall talk from Rad followed by some wrestling news (0-18).
Our wrestler spotlight in this one covers the NWA legend Chief Wahoo McDaniel. He was an extremely popular wrestler out of the mid-atlantic and we are here to relive a bit of it (18-31).

The indie scene was busy as usual in November (31-1:21).
NOAH finished their global league, Stardom finished tag league and had 'best of goddess' show, and RPW was back at the guildhall with PAC in the main event (31-43). Progress had Ch 79 with a returning Travis Banks in the ring (43-51). wXw had their fallout show from Broken Rules in Hamburg to crown the true wXw champion (51-1:04). Impact wrestling continues to set up their big January ppv with Final Hour and their building tv shows (1:04-1:14). Last to cover are episodes 31-33 of MLW as they set up two big event coming in December (1:14-1:21).

Into tier 2 promotions, as tag league in NJPW continues and ROH sets up for Final Battle, CMLL completed their Leyende de Plata annual tournament with some great lucha action (1:21-1:25).
In the latest for WWE, Rad and JD briefly discuss some ongoings within NXT UK, NXT post War Games, and our stance on who is indeed 'the man' (1:25-1:47).

We finish off the cast as we usually do with an episode of WCW Thunder (eps 13, 1998) 10 days before Spring Stampede. How will this one be (1:47-end)?
Cast completes with wrestler rankings and an iTunes review.

Wrestling: Ep 18 - Global War Games Series

I always get my man. ACH and Walter have supposedly signed with WWE. What does this mean (0-11)?

Back in the early 90's of the WWF, highly gimmick characters were a-plenty. This episode we spotlight the evil Canadian wrestler The Mountie (11-19).

In the indie scene JD breaks down some event highlights of various promotions (19-49).
A discussion starts with GWF and WrestlingKult French wrestler Senza Volto. Move into discussing the fallout from the She-1 over in Pro Wrestling Eve (23-28). Then, a little update over a match from NOAH's Global League and wXw's event Broken Rules feature PCO v Dragunov in the main event (29-43). The indie scene is concluded reviewing RPW's Uprising event Starr v Ishii (43-49).

 

Into Tier 2, JD has some thoughts over NJPW's tag league as well as some decent to good matches featured during ROH's Global Wars tour (49-56).

WWE had a big weekend with NXT War Games and Survivor Series. Did they deliver or was it simply dull (56-1:23)?

It wouldn't be RLR without finishing out the cast by looking back. WCW Thunder Eps 12 - 26 Mar. 1998 (1:23-end). Podcast wrestler rankings to finish out and a brief talk over Progress Ch 78.
