WCR Video: (Nitromaniac TV's) Favorite Wrestlecrap Radio Moments/Episodes!

In a clip from Nitromaniac TV's Youtube video podcast, two of the 12 listeners, Kellen Nitro and Moorhouse sit down to discuss their favorite Wrestlecrap Radio episodes and moments from the longest running episodic podcast.

Note: They do mention at the start of the clip (that was recorded back in June 2018) that Mike Check would be attending Starrcast back in August/September, but there was an explanation earlier in the month on The Mike Check Show on why Mike Check didn't show up.

276 Controversy Creates Crap: September 5, 2018

"If a picture paints a thousand words..." (-@WrestleCrapRD)
75 minutes

The Fruitcakes have returned from having fun at Starrcast, all photographically catalogued on RD's Facebook profile, should you or one of my fellow Librarians get around to storing it all for future reference. This involved RD skinning the Gobbledy Gooker for his outfit while Blade wore the "heavy" Oz robe with his "trapezoids". RD thanks Conrad for the success of the show through logistically handling the 140+ guest speakers there. Blade had no idea how he got up there to attend.

RD: "Nothing but the finest for Blade Braxton." (:06)

They also met Jordan Mishkin in person for the first time who was a great help throughout. Blade met Diamond Dan for the first time without having to call his hotline. Remember, that's 317 335 4688. Again, 317 335 HOTT.

While there:

  • Veda Scott helped apply Katie Vick's makeup (:10) much to Rosa Mendez's initial disgust towards a cheerleader mannequin. Mandy Leon liked her hair though. 
  • Simon Gotch was next to them all weekend. Blade caught up with him. (:14) Lanny Poffo was also around for a bit with Jay Lethal. 
  • RD Meet Dave Meltzer for the first time. (:16) Blade met Bryan and Dr. Keith Lipinski. 
  • Botchamania Maffew was a laugh riot.
  • The Ghost of Joey Ryan gravitated to Katie's casket. (:19) Many other folks encountered her both in and out of it including Joel Gertner taking a photo inside it. 
  • Lex Luger is a fan of his hometown Bills and their loose fitting t-shirts (not the "ABC Pro Bowl Team" according to Blade.) (:23) Seeing Katie wheeled around surprised him. 
  • RD was drawn on a Death of WCW related comic book cover. (:26)
  • David Arquette attended the afterparty with other great folks.
  • Just about everyone met was super nice and gracious, as it should be at any convention.

SPEAKING OF Rebel, (:26) she eats Fruity Pebbles for breakfast. While visiting the stand she tried some Peanut Butter and Cocoa. While it smelled good enough for a few other people to gather round and try, it sadly had no taste. Also she does not like soggy cereal or having it with milk.

Upon landing and meeting the Fruitcakes went straight to Walmart and its cereal aisle.

Joel Gertner likes the original unaltered Cocoa Puffs. (:36) These days like Mike Reno before him he prefers the ladies for breakfast. He also went with them to Giordano's for evening pizza. RD: "Does the pizza sound delicious?"

The WC panel (purchase and watch it here) had singing Bill Apter going over a few of his old mag covers. (:41)  Oscar of Men On A Mission vented his anger through a funny rap. Dr D still has a fiery look even now. A segment of Kevin Sullivan was played where he talked about how his one time teleport cannot be replicated because you have to be in the right neighborhood to do it, or something.

Jim was also there for some reason. (:52) He spent his time trying to traverse a maze of people in the parking lot at 1 am. "You can go fuck yourself!" he says randomly, as is his custom.

RD feels he could have done better at the Death of WCW panel (which you can also purchase and watch here). (:55) He was more fascinated (© Mike Check) by his supplemental interaction with Eric Bischoff. This is also included in RD's photo feed.

Their first meeting was in one of the photo ops. areas, with the two situated between Eric and Sean Waltman. Eric was also disgusted by Katie, then had to suffer a low person flow (imagine that) with everyone going to the WC table instead. A break in the action had RD coming over to him, and Blade's photo of it easily showed how already annoyed Bischoff was, even in low resolution.

The panel was the next day (with the aforementioned Sullivan and David Penzer). Bischoff admitted beforehand that he was not a funny person (again, imagine that). The two were on each other right from the start, though RD was the one ultimately succeeding in provoking him. Thankfully their agreeing on a few points and RD reminding him that he wrote that he was an influential and pioneering genius in the business many a time calmed him down. At the end of the panel they shook hands in respect (unlike at the beginning where Eric flipped him off). Blade lamented his limited involvement in all of this.

The true shock was afterwards however. RD, continuing to have no hard feelings, thanked Bischoff for the panel. Bischoff then told RD that he thought Dave Meltzer wrote the book (instead of just a foreword) that he didn't even read in the first place. This was such an absurd revelation that the two just started laughing at the whole thing. This finally helped resolve things between them, enough that they would pose for some more photos. In a more positive light anyway.

And to think that Bischoff wanted to castrate him.

I'm curious to see what the Haiku is all about (after Blade misses his cue):
Labor Day Starrcast.
There's money in the casket.
Katie got around.

WCR Video: Sit Down For Wrestlecrap!

In late 2010, former WWE CEO Linda McMahon attempted to run for Senator of the U.S. state of Connecticut. She was attacked by politicians on both sides of Politics for WWE’s past business and ethical scandals, as well as their controversial story lines (e.g: the time she kicked Jim Ross in the testicles on TV, having her daughter Stephanie participate in a Satanic wedding, Trish Stratus barking like a dog in her underwear...and we haven't even got to Katie Vick yet?). Linda’s husband and WWE chairman Vince McMahon got ultra-defensive, as usual, and posted this video on WWE.com.

RD Reynolds from wrestlecrap.com thought that Vince McMahon's "Stand Up for WWE" was such a brilliant idea that he filmed his own campaign video for his own website with the slogan "Sit Down For Wrestlecrap"!

(Video Title: "RD Reynolds Addresses the WrestleCrap Universe" by WrestlecrapRD)

Hmm. Come to think of it, this video is kind of relevant right now as RD needs YOU, the twelve listeners, to Stand Up "Sit Down" for him against Eric Bischoff, and his war on Deal's "Death Of WCW Book", at Starrcast's "Death Of WCW Panel" on Saturday, September 1st, 2018. Edit: Oh and speaking of that, here's another two videos uploaded by RD Reynolds advertising the Wrestlecrap Panel and addressing Easy E's threats to Deal's private parts:

"Starrcast WrestleCrap Panel - Last Chance!"

"Eric Bischoff Physically Threatens Death of WCW Author's Private Parts"

...And you know who else needs to "Sit Down"? It's Harry Belafonte, who's song can be heard over on The Mike Check Show! And also be sure to visit here for the WCR Video archives!

275 At Home With Dr. D: August 28, 2018

When a man tells you to listen to a radio progrem,
you listen to a radio progrem, wo-man!
90 minutes

Special Patreon offer: Become a valued supporter and listen to an extended version of the entire phone call interview right now. Don't delay, or Dr. D will hunt you down. This is not a joke.

RD thinks their Starrcast presence counts as their long awaited for WC Carnival.

We cut to their interview with Dr. D David Schultz already in progress. (:04 - :76) The three have a lot of fun discussing many things of both his wrestling and bounty hunting, throwing bread in his house, and his dream of finally choking out Vince. Get to reading his book if you haven't done so already! (No digital version available at the moment unfortunately.)

Also he doesn't eat any breakfast cereals. He eats heartier stuff instead.

Somehow this radio progrem is 13 years old so RD tries to get to Ken Patera and his swinging full nelson. (:80) He reminds people that the above linked Starrcast pass also has other panels to stream beyond their ones. Also Eric Bischoff has more promos to cut on his podcast for cheques that he can't cash. RD worries what he's getting into.

Blade: "This is a clean show."

Of course, the Haiku. Here's our puberty right now, seventeen syllables:
Thirteen years of Crap.
How should we all celebrate?
Party at Starrcast.

WCR Videos: RD's Wrestlecrap / Death Of WCW Panel At Starrcast Promos

Back in May (2018), Former WCW President, Eric Bischoff, gave an unflattering opinion of RD Reynolds and Bryan Alvarez and their "The Death Of WCW" book on his "83 Weeks" podcast (The episode dealt with the infamous "Finger Poke of Doom", where on the post Starrcade 1998 edition of WCW Monday Nitro, Kevin Nash laid down for Hulk Hogan after a simple zap from his finger to lose the WCW World Title) after his co-host, Conrad Thompson, (also the co-host of the popular podcasts "Something To Wrestle With" with Bruce Prichard and "What Happened When" with Tony Schiavone) used the book as a reference point.

RD and Blade later played excerpts of Easy E's quotes on Wrestlecrap Radio to give their own retort (on episode #273). In one excerpt, Conrad manages to persuade Eric to go to Starrcast, by "All-In" in Chicago (on Saturday September 1st), where a "Death Of WCW" Panel will be held, which prompts RD to announce that he too will be there to debate him and defend his book (and will bring Blade as backup) among other featured guests Kevin Sullivan and JJ Dillon.

RD also uploaded a YouTube video to also announce that he will be holding a Wrestlecrap Panel (on the Friday before) with guests: Oscar from Men On A Mission, Dr D. David Schulz and former WCW World Champion...David Arquette. And then later uploaded another two videos in response to Bischoff's further tirades against him.
