266 WeaselCrap Radio: October 21, 2017

12 years later, hopefully the "Hydraulic Lift" & the "wheel chair roll"
won't be part of Kurt Angle's "moveset" after TLC?
AKA Kurt Angle's Re-Moveset

120 minutes

RD managed to find the censor button on his recording machine. This does not stop today's radio progrem from being two fucking hours long.

Kurt Angle is due to wrestle a match. This is a not a repeat from TNA. RD proudly proclaims they have more scoops than anyone in town, including a now rolling in his grave Al Isaacs. Blade thinks the show is viral meningitis. I would say that term is redundant, if it were not true.

It's been seven months since the last recording, enough time for someone to have a premature child according to RD's calculations [Actually, it's been 6 months and 21 days, but I think the Clocktrolla broke down long before we could get an accurate reading? -R.V.M Kai]. This is even longer than the 4 1/2 months taken between the first ending of WWCR to do their TURDBUS show [And to think, in 2011, the period between episodes #199 and #200 seemed so long at the time...but were only 77 days apart? -R.V.M Kai].

Blade makes RD have PTSD flashbacks to the time Mike Check did the Star Wars convention market. (:06)

During their absence Blade went traveling around and lost 50 pounds, getting below 200, while RD has continued to write for the site and helped to open and run an arcade. He gave his Co-Fruitcake a round of applause.

RD needs sponsors again, not just for the progrem but also for the site. (:13) He's aiming to go on Patreon like many other folks have before him (such as this awesome fellow who I've been a proudly supporting follower for quite a long while) to keep WC running. Blade is so low maintenance he only needs $1000 a month to get by. Canadian I'm sure.

:16 RD was once again in the Netherlands for his other work, as well as bringing more food to try. He suggests to always make some space in your luggage for this purpose. Blade has to drink Jack Daniels because soup is too expensive where he is at.

RD: "Kids, do you want Blade Braxton to be in the soup line?"

This time he brought "Deep Ridged Lay's in Sweet Chilli flavor" "spelled with 2 l's for some reason"...which it should normally be. I think RD can't spell much like Blade can't count. The chips are yellow instead of orange on the packaging. He chews loudly and notes they seem "burned" for some reason.

While Blade was in Cannes with the Troma folk (:24) he had roasted chicken chips which taste just like mom used to make. He will order some in time for the next episode in five years' time.

Speaking of food the Faxtrolla announces the arrival of some Obscure Wrestling Food. (:26) Some pizza place in Ottawa, home of Anthem Entertainment, is going to have some sort of "Impact Food" for a couple of days with some funny sounding names. Blade and the Honky Tonk Mailman once found a Sbarro's serving breakfast. He also tried pulled pork tacos for the first time while in Texas. He still prefers chicken while RD prefers beef.

Sheamus is to have a "Celtic Warrior Program" for exercise, sadly not featuring Larry Bird. (:34)

Blade managed to find some bad MIDI version of The Way We Were. He uses it to bring up memories, seeing as he asked people for their favorite obscure progrem memories. This is not a repeat from the last 15 years this has been done before. (:35) RD can't even remember what he had for breakfast this morning.

RD remembers killing Get In The Ring Radio, and interviewing Bill Watts with them before doing so. Blade remembered hearing Chavo Guerrero Classic taking a leak while interviewing with them. He once again teases a Big Announcement. (:44)

I'd find the links for those if I was more inclined to do so, so I delegate that to my colleagues, assuming they're still around and haven't fled yet [No, I'm still trapped here...Help! -R.V.M Kai].

RD wants people to send in both real AND fake memories so that they can test their memories and make a memory game of it it and their "Game Show Trolla" (A GST if you will.)

The HorseTrolla neighs about "Old" Mickie James fighting Alexa Bliss. (:55)

:57 For a change RD plays Tammy's music himself of his own volition. The Fruitcakes texted to each other a lot during their hiatus like competing lovers. Blade: "I've been drinking." Apparently she's come closer to home - WC home, not the Big House home, by randomly posting on the old WC forums, now renamed FAN. She liked the "big giant flying turtle" in the Godzilla franchise...which is Gamera, and a different franchise (one which is really neat and is filled with turtle meat). What, Tammy is wrong again? You don't say! Blade had broken Godzilla toys back in his day.

Also she went to an arcade and didn't like it. She didn't go to RD's one then, which would delight just about anyone attending, I guarantee it!

RD finally knows how to mute himself. (:63)

Instead of answering Questions RD attempts to call a Miss Cyndi for her favorite WWCR moment (the one where RD left early due to Blade having fun with the Katie Vick outfit), only to hit her answering machine. That's pretty much symbolic of the show as a whole. (:67) So they call Zane Pasley instead. Fortunately after hitting HIS answering machine he manages to call back, although somewhat stymied that they called him at 11 pm while he was in bed. He teaches U12 soccer so RD goes on about AJ Styles' high kicks. Also he was to be their Co-Hosss Coach back when Blade was still remembering to look for one on the last show. His favorite memory was when he was their Roast drinking beer while the Ratings Reaper was getting cream-pied. RD is angry his favorite moment is about himself (well, yes?), so he sends Zane away.

Blade does not have an itinerary because he doesn't have a paper plate on hand for it.

:77 Like many, RD was deeply saddened and heartbroken by the passing of Bobby Heenan, remembering him and the many times he got him through some hard times, of which he pays forward with his own work. They call up a gentleman named Dan who had re-found some portions of his recorded interview with The Brain hidden away in the Archives, and is rewarded with Blade doing his Greg Gagne impression. Dan remembers Blade and his audible beard in the times when he was listening to the show with a bad connection. This causes Blade to break down again. RD: "We don't make great memories any more, no."

RD plays the portions of his recorded interview which was made on actual audio tape. Needless to say, it is recorded in Watergate quality fidelity. (:92 - :101)

Blade remembers when Adrian Adonis joined Heenan's Family in the 80s for some strange reason. RD remembers when he and Monsoon visited Busch Gardens and his actual daughter kicked him in the shins. Blade then remembers the duo messing around at some boxing training camp. RD follows up by remembering them during the time No Holds Barred was sprung on an unsuspecting audience and Monsoon was petitioning the Academy for an Oscar for the Hulkster. Perhaps WWF would have named Ed Leslie as Oscar if they could have.

Back to Kurt Angle once again wrestling in WWE for the first time in over 10 years, RD is forced to remember when he gushed all over his moveset. (:109) The Fruitcakes listen to it again. RD can barely last a minute before (rarely!) self apologizing for audibly boring Blade.

RD maintains that the Haiku is one of Blade's greatest things.

Seventeen easily digestible syllables:
Kurt Angle's moveset.
Twelve very long years later
RD feels randy.

WCR Video: The "Death" of Stubby (2008)

On the July 11th, 2008 Episode of Wrestlecrap Radio (#111), RD Reynolds and Blade Braxton mourned the loss of everyone's favorite foul-mouthed ventriloquist Hobo Dummy (and 2nd TNA WCR Correspondant), "Stubby", who died after being thrown on a fire at a 4th of July picnic in 2008 by a bored sounding Mrs. Deal.

(Video Title: "WCR Reconstructions: The "Death" of Stubby (07.11.08)" by Greg Diener)

...But don't cry kids. It was revealed almost a year later (on episode #138) that Stubby actually survived and was rescued by beavers thinking that he was stray driftwood...who would have thought that a "beaver" would have liked Stubby's "wood"?

And speaking of deaths...*spoiler alert*...Pennywise, the Clown from the movie "IT" was burst like a balloon today by STAN: The Evil Troll Lord's son "Damien" over on The Mike Check Show's "Halloween Hootanany"! For those who don't know, Damien has been terrorizing Mike Check as revenge for his father being banned from KMCR back in April. But...if  "Murder Was The Case" for the evil clown, and since Mike Check is apparently scared of clowns, isn't Damien actually doing Mike Check a favor???

WCR Video: Interactive: Desperately Geeking Virgil

On Wrestlecrap Radio episode #162 (in 2009), RD Reynolds and Blade Braxton watched a rather bizarre interview with Ted Dibiase's former man-servant, Virgil, at some random comic convention. Here, it seemed that the "self-proclaimed wrestling superstar" was a little too excited at the fact that a female (or an actual person, for that matter) actually showed up within 10 feet of his usually "lonely" gimmick table and looked to want a little (to make another "Madonna" reference:) "Hanky Panky" with his interviewers...but he ends up looking more like a certain "Little River Band" song (that can be heard on The Mike Check Show today).

And speaking of "perverts"; Sir Alec Heineken then calls in, after the Interactive segment ended, to read the bizarre YouTube comments.

WCR Video: Interactive: Doin' a Kwicky

Since WWE are currently touring Australia, WCR Videos will today present the Wrestlecrap Radio Interactive segment (from episode #158) from 2009 where RD and Blade did commentary on the opening of the short lived animated series: "The Kwicky Koala Show". But remember, don't call Kwicky "the fastest bear in Australia" since he's actually a marsupial and he "obviously" wouldn't appreciate that? :)

WCR Video: Interactive: Phil Collins VS The Ultimate Warrior

In 2006, WrestleCrap.com had unearthed the most bizarre match in wrestling history: "The Ultimate Warrior" versus former Genesis front man "Phil Collins". This was also probably the first time that RD Reynolds and Blade Braxton did commentary on a YouTube video before the WCR Interactives actually became a re-occurring segment on Wrestlecrap Radio in 2008.

The Video with commentary:

The Original Video:

(Video Title: "Ultimate Warrior versus Phil Collins" uploaded by RD Reynolds)

And after watching this video, it's possible that you'll be left with more questions than answers, like:
  • Who's idea was it to film Ultimate Warrior and Phil Collins in a ring in the first place?
  • Why would Phil actually choose to wear that ridiculous looking head gear with the love hearts on it?
  • Does dancing badly to the song "Two Hearts" lead to "Destrucity"?
  • Why didn't Gilbert Gottfried receive a "Warrior Award" for being dragged into this?
  • Why does my heard hurt right now?

...Well, these questions will probably never have any resemblance of a reasonable explanation? But perhaps it would have been better if they had listened to Gilbert Gottfried opinion at the end of the video before making it?

(Edit: As I later found out on Brain Zane's "Wrestling With Wregret" YouTube show; this video was actually a sketch from a 1990 TV special titled: "Seriously... Phil Collins")...seriously?

...Oh, and speaking of "Phil Collins"; "The Mike Check Show" is currently playing "Something Happened On The Way To Heaven" today! (Cheap plug!) And also be sure to visit here for the WCR Video archives! (another cheap plug!)
