Scott’s annoying fixation on Wrestlecade 2013 continues, as he brings Corey Edsel in to talk all about it. They also discuss Corey’s weight loss, his return to the ring against Justin Flash and Daniel Messina earlier this month, and more.

Scott and Houston then talk about movies. It’s more interesting than Matt complaining about gear and kickpads.

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!

kyle matthews title

Scott talks to new AIWF World Champion Kyle Matthews just before his successful title defense against top contender Justin Flash at the AIWF Mid Atlantic: Extreme Content event. Kyle discusses the grueling fatal four-way elimination match that he won, the new exposure the AIWF championship provided, and who he’d like to face in the ring.

Next, Scott and Matt do their weekly top five list: The Top Five Wrestlers to never win a world title. Scott and Matt do this segment blind (not knowing each other’s picks) and still manage to not repeat any. Have a listen.
