This week on BoredWrestlingFan Radio, the guys find pretty much nothing interesting to talk about with regards to the past week in wrestling television, and in fact spend the majority of the first half of the show talking about tentacle porn. OK, maybe not the majority, but they talk about it. We at least get around to talking about some wrestling before we get to the break songs.
In the news, we pay our respects to “Nature Boy” Buddy Landel. Jamie Noble leaves RAW with three broken ribs courtesy of The Beast, Brock Lesnar. Hulk Hogan dumbfounds us with his tweets. Dolph Ziggler isn’t leaving WWE, but several top talents may or may not be leaving TNA, depending on who you ask. We give our synopsis of the first episode of the new Total Divas season. All this and much, much more!
This week on BoredWrestlingFan Radio, we talk about Bellator MMA. Oh, yeah, and the week in pro wrestling including Sheamus capturing Money In The Bank, MGK no-selling a Kevin Owens powerbomb off the stage, and Owens just having a kick ass week in general.

This week on BWF Radio, Facebook loses our show notes, but we still manage to kill the entire first hour without even needing them. We talk about the week in pro wrestling, including Lucha Underground, NXT, and RAW, with a little of SmackDown thrown in as well. We pay tribute to the late, great Dusty Rhodes. We then skew off in a different direction talking about other television shows and video games, bringing it full circle to talk about WWE video games before the end of the first half.
We kick off the second half with Money In The Bank predictions. In the news, we read some tributes to Dusty Rhodes from those who knew him. Kevin Owens defends John Cena’s in-ring abilities. Jessicka Havok may have tweeted herself out of a job. The Big O doesn’t make Tough Enough. Steve Austin is NOT facing Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32, but he IS using P.E.D.s – in the bedroom.

“I’ve wined and dined with Kings and Queens, and slept in an alley eatin’ pork an’ beans.”
Virgil Runnels wasn’t exactly what you would call the prototypical professional wrestler of his era, but you don’t become a three-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion based on looks alone. While a solid worker in the ring, nobody could deliver a promo like Dusty Rhodes.
In front of the camera, Dusty was The American Dream. He looked like the average American, he stood up for the working man, and he got in the ring every night and beat up the jerks who thought they were better than us, what with their chiseled physiques and star-driven wealth.
But behind the scenes, Dusty Rhodes was one of the most brilliant minds there ever was in professional wrestling. Starrcade? Dusty. War Games? Dusty. Great American Bash? Dusty. You know that thing where the good guy seems to win the title and vanquish the evil bad guy, only to have the decision reversed and the bad guy walk out still champion? To this day, we call that a “Dusty finish,” because it was something Dusty came up with.
Even when he came to WWF in the early ’90s and was stuck in polka dots in an attempt to bury him, Dusty’s personality shined through and he won the hearts of the WWF fans who may not have been familiar with his work in the NWA.
Dusty Rhodes’ legacy will live on, as his sons Dustin and Cody continue to ply their trade in WWE as Goldust and Stardust, respectively.
Wrestling has lost a brilliant mind and one of it’s most iconic figures today, and we’re truly sad to see him go. We here at BoredWrestlingFan send our deepest condolenses to Dusty’s family, friends, and our fellow fans. Thank you, Dusty.

I have quite a treat for you Bored Wrestling Fans this week. When we announced that there would be no show this week JT suggested that I do an extended version of The View From Britain and I agreed. I announced on Twitter this week the episode would be delayed until Saturday. That was so that I could finish watching all the wrestling this week. That’s what I’ll be talking about this week. It’s nothing but me talking wrestling for an hour. Let me know if you enjoy it.
