B. Brian Blair stops in to talk with Scott about his tag team match (along with George South) against Ricky Morton and Bushwhacker Luke Dec. 7 in Clayton, NC. He discusses his history with the WWE, his political leanings, the real reasons the Killer Bees never won the WWE Tag Team Championship, and much more.

Then Matt Houston joins Scott to recap Wrestlecade, discuss his medical issues keeping him out of the ring, and the Top Five Pizza Toppings. The spirited argument that ensues is something to behold.

And don’t forget to come early to Clayton December 7!



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!

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 You can also say hello to him on Facebook His fan site (where you can buy exclusive Manaconda gear)is 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.

Carolina Wrestling Federation Rising Generations League champ Chris “ShoSmoove” Lea (@ShoSmoove on Twitter) joins Scott and Houston this week for the entire podcast. Chris discusses his meteoric rise as a rookie wrestler, the RGL program at CWF Mid Atlantic, his television career (he is currently the afternoon traffic reporter for WXII in the Piedmont Triad, the area’s NBC affiliate, as well as a weekend overnight on-air talent for 102Jams FM in Greensboro.

In the second half of the show, Scott and Houston argue about the top five Babyface Turns of all time and get taken to task by an e-mailer for omitting an important heel turn from their list last week. Then, Houston blindsides Chris by ceding the Manaconda Minute to him. Because he’s lazy.
