This week on BoredWrestlingFan Radio, Joe delivers the numbers for show, and they’re apparently equal to the amount of offense CM Punk got in at UFC 203. We spend a bit of time talking about the event, specifically Punk’s fight, and discuss the very distinct difference between the UFC Fight Pass and the WWE Network. We briefly touch on WWE Backlash, as well as the programming from the week, Delete or Decay is discussed, and Drowgoddess tells us all about what’s going on over in NJPW.
In the news, CM Punk’s days of fighting in the UFC are over, according to Dana White – but then again, they’re not, also according to Dana White. Alberto Del Rio is released by WWE, while Paige has obtained legal counsel in an effort to quit. Meanwhile, Tyson Kidd’s contract has been renewed. WWE signs several Chinese talent.

And then we talk about whatever else comes to mind, because who needs to talk wrestling on a wrestling podcast?

Alberto Del Rio leaves WWE – again. The Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton rematch will take place at a house show in Chicago. News on ROH, Lucha Underground, and TNA. Final Deletion 2 news.

This week on BoredWrestlingFan Radio, Noyce and Drowgoddess return to the show. We talk about concerts and being old. Then we get steered into the direction of professional wrestling as Drowgoddess talks about ROH’s Death Before Dishonor event that she attended in Las Vegas last weekend. We give a quick SummerSlam recap. We discuss a favorite topic of ours, the culture of outrage on the internet surrounding all things WWE. Plus, we unintentionally debut a new segment, “Hogan in History.”

This week on BoredWrestlingFan Radio, with Drowgoddess and Noyce both unavailable to participate, thus bringing down our number of both Europeans and women on the show to zero, Joe filled the void in one fell swoop by bringing in an Irish lass, MK of the SummerSluts ’98 podcast. We talk about the differences between America and everywhere else in the world, play the occasional round of a SummerSluts ’98 hallmark called “Would You Suck His Dick, Though,” and give our thoughts on tonight’s SummerSlam card.

Joe Russo and JT Hogan debate whether it’s “Bro” or “Brother.” We ponder what Michelob Ultra beer is superior than (with very little results). And of course we touch briefly on televised wrestling in the United States.
In the news, ESPN is expanding their coverage of professional wrestling (Editor’s Note: probably at the expense of it’s already minimal hockey coverage).

Well, we said that we wanted changes. NJPW gave them to us in abundance. The shock victories on Night #1 were fantastic, but when almost all of the wins are like that, the impact is diluted. After five of the nineteem shows, Makabe leads Block A, with Tenzan and Goto close behind. Nagata leads Block B, with almost everyone else tied for second place. We’re still in the early stages.
We are about at the halfway point of the G1 Climax Tournament in New Japan, and Drowgoddess has been watching each and every night of the tournament thusfar. Join Drowgoddess, along with ThinkSoJoE and G, as we recap the first nine days of the tournament and look ahead to the second half.

Everyone isn’t into the story of YOSHI-HASHI this year, but the flaws are what make it work. Yes, he looks uncertain, even afraid, and almost surprised when he wins. Yet he is determined to soldier on, and it’s that determination in spite of the fear of going it alone that makes him so compelling. YOSHI has a heavily-wrapped shoulder after his match with Honma as well. He and Shibata are either helping sell Honma’s finisher as really damaging, or this is a sign that Honma is going to seriously hurt someone by the time that G-1 ends. Whatever “Loose Explosion” means, wearing it across your buttocks is not helping you to be taken seriously. Please change that.
