HoustonAttemptsSuicide

Scott is a little giddy this week, as the Manaconda has returned from a hospital stay necessitated by an abdominal disorder that frankly frightened the living bejesus out of him, Matt’s family, friends, and Rob McBride (who gets this week’s special producer credit for posting the above photo, where Matt attempted an Arabian Press against doctor’s orders. To say this created some drama at Manaconda Manor would be understating things).

After pleasantries and a rant from Scott we haven’t seen since last Thanksgiving, Scott and Matt discuss their five favorite supercards. They did a draft, so they included TEN supercard series AND an honorable mention each. Fans of WrestleRock and SuperClash will be elated.

Scott and Matt will return next week for a regular program, hopefully with an actual non-feline guest. Email your thoughts and well wishes for Mr. Houston at podcast@thisweekinwrestling.net. You can also say hello to him on Facebook His fan site (where you can buy exclusive Manaconda gear)is http://Manaconda-mafia.net. You can follow Matt on twitter @ManacondaMatt, and Scott is still tweeting @scotteiland.

Scott talks to CWF Mid Atlantic showrunner (and This Week In Wrestling regular guest) Brad Stutts to discuss the results of the CWF Rumble. He and Matt Houston then talk to the Rumble’s winner, Zane Dawson. Scott eventually gets ejected from the building during the interview. We apologize for Mr Houston’s and Mr. Dawson’s behavior, as it was unprofessional. Also, Scott was locked putside, which is pretty funny.
