Former six-time CWF Mid Atlantic Heavyweight Champion “The 1st” Ric Converse (@ricconverse_1st on Twitter) joins Scott and Matt for this week’s episode discussing the strange implosion of his “Aftermath” stable, the attack on William L. Cross by Trevor Lee, Chet Sterling, and Ben Tyler, and his upcoming Triple Threat match against Arik Royal and “The Dog-faced Gremlin” Rick Steiner on March 23 in Thomasville. Ric discusses his in-ring philosophy, how he’s been able to maintain longevity with one company for so long, and his relationship with trainer Ken Spence. Matt Houston then provides Scott with Ric’s “Five Names,” and Ric’s compelling reactions are podcast gold.

In the National News segment, Scott sadly discusses the breakup and rebooting of the AIWF that gave him his start, including a surprisingly somber Matt Houston. Scott discusses the parts of the abrupt departure of the former AIWF World Champion that bothered him and the part that didn’t, attempting to draw a distinction between what happened and how it happened.

Then Scott and Matt discuss the CWF End of An Era event, which ended with William L. Cross being rushed to the hospital after being attacked by the Fun Athletic Guys and Chet Sterling. Also, they discuss Pure Pro Wrestling’s Super Clash III, including Matt Houston’s sudden availability. Is the former PPW Champion angling for an early rematch, or will his challenge to fight the winner of the Justin Flash-Jimi Love match result in a more conventional opportunity?

Manager of the Kilbillies Bobby O’Neil heads up this week’s poetry reading, where the usually-drinking spokesman of the former CWF tag champs fires off a stirring rendition of the Emily Dickinson Classic: “IF You Were Coming in the Fall.” Here is the English translation, so fans can follow along (courtesy of americanpoems.com)

If you were coming in the Fall,
I’d brush the Summer by
With half a smile, and half a spurn,
As Housewives do, a Fly.

If I could see you in a year,
I’d wind the months in balls —
And put them each in separate Drawers,
For fear the numbers fuse —

If only Centuries, delayed,
I’d count them on my Hand,
Subtracting, till my fingers dropped
Into Van Dieman’s Land.

If certain, when this life was out —
That yours and mine, should be
I’d toss it yonder, like a Rind,
And take Eternity —

But, now, uncertain of the length
Of this, that is between,
It goads me, like the Goblin Bee —
That will not state — its sting.
