It’s the BoredWrestlingFan Radio 3rd Anniversary Show! Joining us this week is the Quintessential Stud Muffin of ECW Joel Gertner, one half of the World’s Greatest Tag Team, Charlie Haas, and IHWE promoter David Fuller. Andrew J Reimers sent in a song for us trapped here in South Buffalo.

We talk this week about TNA’s new TV deal, get MavenFan’s Survivor Series predictions, and talk about the latest wrestling news. All this and much more on BoredWrestlingFan Radio!
So, you guys know the deal – I usually watch 30 minutes of RAW, leave for work, and review the rest of this show in real time as I watch it. Well, due to inclement weather here in Buffalo, I find myself sitting at home right now, having watched all but 30 minutes of RAW. I went out to catch my bus to work, but although the local bus company insists that their buses were all running on time today, mine never showed up. At the time I left, it was 11 degrees Fahrenheit with a wind chill of -20. As I type this, it’s 1 with a wind chill of -32. So, if you can’t tell, IT’S FUCKING COLD OUTSIDE! So, I called my boss, told him I couldn’t make it in, then came home and watched the rest of Old School RAW. Afterward, I did some DDP Yoga, so I’m here now to actually review the whole show. Let’s go!
I watch 30 minutes of RAW, freeze my ass off waiting for a bus that never shows up, and then come home and watch the rest of RAW. That’s how this particular RAW review works. It’s only getting colder!
It’s a BWF Radio of Royal Rumble sized proportions! Joe, Jorge, JT, G, Hornsby of BotchedSpot, Brian Muller of Buffalo’s Scarlet Embrace, and Brian DeVille and Frankie Feathers of Empire State Wrestling battle to get a word in edgewise as the 8 men give their thoughts and predictions for the WWE’s annual Royal Rumble Pay Per View event. Plus, all the wrestling news of the week, including Chris Jericho’s desired new wrestling name, The Rock’s “Teddy Bear,” an update on Superstar Billy Graham’s health, and much, much more. Tune in for this supersized edition of BWF Radio!
Thank you for finally bringing WrestleMania back to the Northeast. It’s been 9 long years. I appreciate the fact that I can actually realistically hope to go to WrestleMania next year without spending too much on traveling to the host city. That said, however, I’m a little bit baffled at your choice of stadium. We’re all impressed with the new state-of-the-art Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ, which is of course home to the New York Jets, and Super Bowl Champion New York Giants, but perhaps that level of impressiveness has proven to be deceitful. You see, for years I had assumed that Buffalo would never get a WrestleMania for the sheer fact that we have an outdoor stadium in a place where, even on April 7th, the weather isn’t all that great. Apparently, I was mistaken.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that New York State is more than just that little island there right off the coast of New Jersey. I can see how you would get confused, however, since our own state capital, Albany, apparently doesn’t know that either. My complaint isn’t that you’re bringing WrestleMania back home to the New York City area, it’s that you’re doing it in an outdoor venue in a cold-weather climate, and that I’m sure Buffalo wasn’t even a consideration. You guys are here twice a year, let’s face it, you know just as well as we do that Buffalo’s economy could certainly use the $62 Million boost more than New York City and East Rutherford.
We’ve got passionate wrestling fans here. We sell out every Pay Per View you bring our way. And we do big events right. Just ask the Pittsburgh Penguins, who were here as part of the NHL’s first ever Winter Classic. If you are unfamiliar with the NHL, that’s the National Hockey League. You know, the sport The Goon played. I know you just did a huge press conference for WrestleMania XXIX in Jersey, and they can have it, that’s fine, but if it goes off without a hitch, I highly ask that you please consider bringing WrestleMania to Buffalo. We could use the economic boost much more than the cities you’ve been bringing WrestleMania to lately, and our fans would make sure you didn’t regret the decision for a moment.
I’m in a pretty good mood. I’m six days away from attending a WWE event in Buffalo for the first time since December 2007, and just three days away from moving into my new apartment. I may have a new job on the horizon, and I’m enjoying my life for the moment. Enough about me, though, you guys are here for ECW on SciFi! Christian is the new ECW Champion, what will Jack Swagger have to say about it? Will we find out tonight? Who knows!
