Episode 9: Wrestlers In Adverts, Mug Shot Game Redux & Dynamite Kid vs Tiger Mask… Sort Of

James, Christian and Phil finally get around to watching 15 adverts with wrestlers in them and voting on the best, the mug shot game redux, The Shockmaster redux and Dynamite Kid vs Tiger Mask, which was derailed when Phil found out that Gary Coleman was dead and also 17 years old when Diff’rent Strokes wrapped. Also on the show is Phil’s hatred of mumble rap, the world’s worst burglar, the world’s worst room mate and oh so much more!

Episode 7: ITV World Of Sport Wrestling – Then & Now

Christian is hosting James and Phil this week on The Non-Fan’s Guide to Wrestling, where the chaps watch no less than three matches.  Firstly, a disappointment from ITV’s World Of Sport revival show, then an understated yet incredibly enjoyable encounter between the unheralded Johnny England and Steve Grey, before topping the show off with Big Daddy vs Giant Haystacks at Wembley Arena.  A guess-the-wrestler style game, Stone Cold Steve Austin playing golf, Randy Orton greeting new WWE writers and even more on this week’s show!

Episode 6: The Shockmaster’s Debut & Attitude Era Matches You Won’t See in 2018

James, Christian and the returning Phil witness the most memorable debut in wrestling history when The Shockmaster belly flops through the wall at WCW Clash of the Champions XXIV.  After that, Al Snow vs Road Dogg for the WWF Hardcore Championship (Jan 4th 1999), Sable vs Luna in an Evening Gown Match (WWF Unforgiven 1998) and Trish Stratus & Lita vs Torrie Wilson & Stacy Keibler (WWF InVasion 2001) are consumed by the boys.  No awards given to which match they enjoyed the least.  Everything from Phil’s past drug addictions, Skull Boy, World’s Strongest Man, favourite movies and everything in between is hit on in our best episode yet!

Episode 4: Luger vs Hogan, Lawler Pastes Miss Texas & The Mug Shot Game

Non-wrestling fans James, Christian and Phil watch Lex Luger’s two greatest triumphs of the 1990s – Luger cleanly defeating Hollywood Hulk Hogan on WCW Monday Nitro #99 for the WCW World Title and Lex Luger racking Roadblock.  The boys also witness Jerry Lawler knocking Miss Texas unconscious in USWA with a big farm hand, wrestler mug shots are reviewed, Hulk Hogan’s WWE reinstatement and more, more, MORE!

Episode 3: Bret Hart vs Yokozuna & Bret Hart vs Hulk Hogan

The non-wrestling fans James, Christian and Phil attempt to dive into the contentious relationship between Bret Hart and Hulk Hogan through two of their relatively rare on-screen interactions.  The boys watch Bret Hart vs Yokozuna from WWF WrestleMania IX, which ended up in a fiasco thanks to Hulk Hogan.  James also reads extracts from Bret Hart’s book and Hulk Hogan’s website that both address the backstage fallout between the two after WrestleMania IX, with Vince McMahon manipulating the storylines and the wrestlers, too.

The non-fans also watch Bret Hart vs Hollywood Hulk Hogan from WCW Nitro #159, which ends up in an even BIGGER fiasco, with ridiculous-looking stepover toe holds and a finish which leaves everybody watching baffled as to anyone’s motivations.

Episode 2: Mankind vs Undertaker Hell in a Cell – WWF King of the Ring 1998 + Fun with Sid Vicious

Non-wrestling fans James, Christian and Phil finally get round to watching Phil’s request of Mankind vs Undertaker Hell in a Cell match from WWF King of the Ring 1998 + one of Sid Vicious’ most famous botched promos and the Skyscrapers beating up an uncooperative jobber are viewed for the very first time.  This week’s game involved the non-fans guessing what wrestling terms really mean.

Episode 1: Infamous WWF Segments + Horrendous Merchandise

Non-wrestling fan James Romero sits down with his brother Christian “Grem” Romero and Phillip “Flop” Daniel to witness, for the very first time, some of the silliest and most tasteless angles in WWF history.  The debut of the Gobbledy Gooker, Papa Shango employing the power of voodoo to give Ultimate Warrior menstrual cramps, Val Venis almost having his pee pee choppy choppied, Big Boss Man driving off with Big Show’s dad’s casket, the Miss Royal Rumble swimsuit competition and THAT Triple H-Katie Vick skit!  Also, Vader roughing up Kuwait’s favourite breakfast personality is viewed and terrible WWF merch is scrutinized.
