killbillies

Scott visited the CWF Mid Atlantic Sportatorium this week and discussed qrestling, training, and moonshine with the Killbillies. “Barefoot” Bobby O’Neal joined Arik Andrews and Evan Banks for six-man tag action with their old trainer Shawn Christian and the new tag team of Smith and Weston, and the antics of the region’s most popular tag team drew Scott’s interest. Manager/Commentator Nick D stopped in to recite some Shakespeare, and Scott and Houston blathered on like usual. Have a listen!

Serial Thrillers
Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion “The Hurricane” Shane Helms joins Scott and Matt to talk about his upcoming OMEGA Championship Wrestling tournament match against “King” Shane Williams, the future of OMEGA, CW Anderson’s superkick, and much more in an often-hilarious half hour conversation. Matt also discusses the sort-of-controversy (call it a kerfuffle) that he started with a statement he made on social media, and he and Scott discuss whether there are too many wrestling promoters in North Carolina.

Don’t miss OMEGA’s return to Chapel Hill, North Carolina for Chapel Thrill October 12. Details here.

Later, Scott and Brad Stutts talk with WWE Encyclopedia author Brad Shields about a series of events discussing the history of World Wrestling Entertainment. He also discusses his work with Acclaim Entertainment and the WWE itself.

StrivetoSurvive2013

Scotty Mathews joins Matt and Scott for a podcast promoting both OMEGA and the huge Strive to Survive event in Clayton, NC, where Jimmy Hart will manage The Mid Atlantic Outlaws (Matt Houston and Louis Moore), Trevor Lee, Ben Tyler, and Mathews in a tag team elimination match against the Dawson Brothers, The Powers of Pain, and Jimi Love. Mathews talks about his legendary promo abilities, his Jimmy Hart stories from the TNA days, and how his faith and wrestling work together. He talked about his ministry, his high-concept match with Joe Black in Aberdeen, and a fake upcoming match in Waco, Texas against chewing gum (trust me, just listen to the interview.) You can follow Scotty on twitter @Scotty44Mathews and through Facebook.

Later in the show, Scott and Matt break down the Top Five Dumbest Finishers in Wrestling History.

Have a listen!
