On June 7, Lance Lude (@LanceLude on twitter) shocked the wrestling world by defeating Trevor Lee (w/ Chet Sterling) to win the Pro Wrestling International (PWI) Ultra J championship in CWF Mid Atlantic’s first-ever “No Limits” match. Before the event, Scott sits down with Brad Stutts to discuss the “Battlebowl” concept that included the no-fooling, totally-for real random draw of opponents. Little did we know that Lance would pull the upset in No-DQ, falls-count-anywhere fashion. In segment two (around the 28 minute mark) the new PWI Ultra J champ joins Scott and Brad to discuss the big win and what led to it.

In this week’s Best of This Week in Wrestling, Scott and Houston talk to former NWA United States Champion Nikita Koloff. Koloff was the special guest referee for the big grudge match in 2013 between Rob McBride and Gunner, and he also talked about his amazing career, his relationship with Uncle Ivan Koloff and Dusty Rhodes, and much more. Listen to Scott and Matt almost explode in fanboyness while Nikita talks about wrestling, faith, and his reality show “Preacher’s Daughters.”

We will be back SOON with new content! Until then, enjoy!

Jimmy Hart
(original air date: July 11, 2013)

While we re-tool during the late spring and early summer, I thought it’d be fun to re-air our episode with “Legends House” star Jimmy Hart, the loud-mouthed Manager of the Stars who talked to Scott and Houston shortly before Strive to Survive in 2013. If you haven’t heard it, give it a listen! If you have heard it, listen again! We will return soon with new content, just as soon as Scott gets his new studio set up together and Matt emerges from wherever he went.

Scott and Matt, in one of their most ridiculous and funny shows yet, yammer about all manner of things, including Scott’s relocation, Matt’s dating advice, and assorted wrestling tidbits. Scott sits down with Adam Page and his rival/friend/sometime tag partner Justin Flash to discuss his Country Jakked tag team in PWX, his Ring of Honor prospects, and more. Scott fires off a disjointed opening rant about how Americans treat our beautiful people, and Houston humblebrags a Manaconda Minute.

(Editor’s Note: Scott misidentifies this episode as the eighty-sixth. Scott’s brain is full of hot cheese.)

Former NWA Women’s World Champion Kacee Carlisle joins Scott and special guest producer Red Jones 1 on 1 in this special episode, as she discusses her busy schedule after dropping the NWA strap a few months ago. Scott stops drooling long enough to ask Kacee about teaching new female wrestlers, difficult truths, and best practices for the aspiring women’s performer. (Red never stops drooling.) Kacee gives us 20 awesome minutes for this episode, which we can now call an Easter present. Follow Kacee on twitter @kaceecarlisle (and Scott @scotteiland).

Matt Houston later joins the episode from TWIW headquarters to expound on Kacee’s many awesome points on continuing wrestling education and being truthful with aspiring performers. Both Scott AND Matt discuss the importance of humility for rookies and young veterans alike. Scott then reads three emails, including two requesting dating advice from Mr. Houston.

“Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breathe their final breath and if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit will be immortalized”

— The Ultimate Warrior, April 7, 2014.

Scott and Matt break down Wrestlemania 30 and discuss the event’s place in history, attempting to keep a positive face on the show in the face of the Ultimate Warrior’s sudden death April 8. Scott discusses his issues with an ESPN personality’s drive-by analysis of the Warrior’s death, while Houston saves some angry words for HLN’s resident harpy Nancy Grace.

Was Wrestlemania 30 the best Wrestlemania of them all? The Streak is over; why isn’t Scott upset about it? Our heroes break down the event as a form of therapy for us all.

Rest in peace, Ultimate Warrior, and may God bless you and your family in their time of grief.

The Ivan Koloff Tag Team Tournament took place March 29, and Scott and Houston were both in attendance. One of them had the night of his life, and the other one won the tournament. Scott and Houston discuss the tournament results in detail and, because the event was that good, talk about things that encourage them in the wrestling business.

Then Scott sits down one-on-one with former WCW mainstay the Stro, who talked about Ivan Koloff’s impact on his own career, his new career as an actor, and much more. Scott manages to work in his famous squeamishness regarding horror- what IS it with wrestlers and the horror genre? Check out all things Stro on his website

Scott and Matt return to talk about long-held opinions they have that may now be considered “unpopular.”

Houston didn’t know about Arn Anderson’s best promo ever, so Scott had to share it with him:

Enjoy our show from Manaconda Manor this week. We shall return next week, hopefully with a guest.

(Scott misidentifies this episode as the 81st, because he cannot count.)

Trevor Lee, the NEW PWI Ultra-J champion, talks to Scott a couple days after his amazing win over Andrew Everett and how he’s become a star at the young age of 20. He discusses his family background in wrestling, his relationship with Chet Sterling, and his recovery from his broken jaw from National Pro Wrestling Day. He throws in a few barbs Matt Houston’s way. Houston also has a new soundbyte to play for Scott, to hilarious ends.

Scott also discusses what he likes about the WWE product today (and his disappointment in TNA as a viable alternative) while Matt says Matt things.
