1. BWF187This week, despite the absence of G, BoredWrestlingFan Radio started normally enough.  Joe, JT (via phone on vacation), and Noyce discussed the week in pro wrestling as usual, including all the happenings from Battleground, RAW, Lucha Underground and NXT.  We even talked a little bit about the Hulk Hogan scandal.  But after the break song, things got a little strange.

    In the second half while reading the news, Joe became possessed by Stone Cold Steve Austin, shouting about Alpha Brain and Pro Flowers, adding in the word “what” at random times, and doing the show with a raspy southern drawl.  News stories include the fallout from the Hulk Hogan racism scandal, when the decision was made to bring back The Undertaker, and where Sting fits in with The Shield vs. The Wyatt Family at SummerSlam.  Daniel Bryan is optimistic about a return, and so is his neurologist.  WWE is intentionally screwing with Ring of Honor, who are moving time slots to 11PM Wednesdays.  All this and much, much more (what?).  Tune in!

    This week on BoredWrestlingFan Radio, Joe is severely sunburnt, and G is house hunting.  We actually talk about wrestling in the first half of the show for once, because some helpful bastard put the card for each show in the notes!  Then we spend time reading listicles from an unafilliated website because Kayfabe News made fun of websites that do terrible listicles.

    In the news, now former NXT Champion Kevin Owens is named “Wrestler of the Year” by Rolling Stone.  WWE sues former talent for getting concussions.  Bill Goldberg talks about his foreskin.  Dolph Ziggler may or may not have signed a contract.  Nobody watches Tough Enough, no matter how many women in bikinis they try to fit in an episode.  GFW is doing an invasion angle with TNA because nobody else wanted to.  Dixie Carter and Bob Ryder barely have any actual Twitter followers.  And Total Divas is coming back tonight, we give our usual amazing preview of the show.  All this and much more on BoredWrestlingFan Radio!  Tune in!

  5. BWF183This 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!

  7. BWF181This 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.  WWE is trying to work with WWN since ROH is producing a Kevin Steen action figure.  Chyna is trying to crowdsource money for a documentary, while she argues with Sean Waltman about drugs.  What former WWE star says medical marijuana saved his life?  And what kind of ghosts would Vampiro be chasing if he gets his “Ghost Hunters” style show on the El Rey Network?  All this and much more, tune in!

  8. Virgil "Dusty Rhodes" Runnels, 1945-2015

    Virgil “Dusty Rhodes” Runnels, 1945-2015

    “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.
