WCR Video - Desperately Geeking Virgil

As requested by Blade Braxton, himself, the following lost WCR Video has been re-uploaded in full.

Back in 2009, RD Reynolds and Blade Braxton did a Wrestlecrap Radio (episode #162) Interactive segment on a YouTube video where, former "Wrestling Superstar" Virgil (Jones?), had a rather bizarre interview at some random con, whereby he tried to hit on his interviewers. As a bonus, Sir Alec then reads the bizarre YouTube comments.

287 The Angry Gym: October 31, 2019

WWE2k20 Glitch or artist's impression of Becky Lynch in a Haunted Gym?

89 minutes

Huey has a laughing fit while Drunk Blade rambles.

Blade does not remember (m)any of their old episodes, both on Patreon and on this site (somewhere). RD: "They do a lot of fine work. We should recognize them thusly." Blade: "It will be something."

Roddy Piper also has something. He reminds kids to wear neon to ward off the danger of idiots driving cars. (:12) The two have names for his posse. Might I suggest the John Nada Carpenters?

Blade and Don are stuck inside the War on Candy Corn, which has heavy fighting on both sides. (:14) RD tries Ultimate Cheddar Flavor Doritos with Cheetos extract which tastes alright. Blade is stuck on Tron's Brach's butterscotch discs, "the tan things you suck on". He reminds RD on his age.

RD decides to talk about wrestling. (:24) Rick "Eyes" Steiner's son Bronson is doing well Running Backing in college football. Blade thinks he will last in the new XFL's one season, particularly as they now have suddenly open spaces due to paying players a salary between "jack" and "shit". Blade thinks retired players should play again for some reason. I am sure it would be worth risking their health once again.

Matt Hardy and Reby Sky will be parents again for the third time. (:32) RD gets ahead of Blade and non-directly says that she likes to f-ollow through on things.

Jim calls with horror music, a by-product of "The Angry Gym", a 'haunted gym'. They'll scare the fat out of you! (:36) He tells them to call Dave Meltzer to tell him to go fuck himself, or something. RD decides to do just that as per his itinerary, so that he can play an excerpt from his podcast with Bryan Alvarez where he tells him about some very seductive weights. Piper reminds RD to say please and thank ya to him next time.

Bill Apter had a birthday last week. (:45) "Wrestling's Power Brokers" is the cover story of Wrestling Superstars October 1990. Ken Patera and Black Scorpion are NOT on the list, but somebody named "Big Juice" is. "Dr. Death" Steve Williams is #1, possibly from Jim's haunted gym. Demolition Smash is #14.

Jim calls back in so RD has to rush to cue up his horror music. Such good coordination I see. (:53) Bob Caudle is literally running for his life so Jim speeds him off his treadmill. "Shove it up your ass!"

As can be expected with Blade's intellect and/or sobriety, at no point does he make the obvious CrossFit joke.

Blade wants to be Ken Patera's Swinging Full Nelson for Halloween. (:56) RD admonishes Blade for not knowing how to count. Blade: "Put that on my tombstone."

In relation to another bad WWE T-shirt in the recent news which does not feature Sin Cara's penis, what are some GOOD wrestling T-shirts? RD has Andre the Giant 5X worn by Stephanie McMahon belted as a mini (Blade thinks they should be worn by female companions), Blade's 2004 WCW Dungeon of Doom, and Survivor Series 1987 sent to and from Blade. The aforementioned Fruitcake still can't count. He has to look up a 10th Anniversary Mickie James crotch-licking, (breast-feeding) Matilda, and Demolition's first "band-aid" shirt to show that they had finally made it. Sad News: Blade's AtG shirt was only XL instead of 5X which he did not belt as a mini, colored pink when his mother washed it, and bleaching it only shrunk it, before he discarded it ten years later.

WWE 2K20 is hilariously awful. That won't stop the Fruitcakes from wanting to buy a copy and see how so bad it's good it is in person. (:75) Blade was worried by one visual of a glitching referee having a seizure. Nintendo John agrees and bleeps himself. So does his audience.

RD found some "Haunted" Haiku music for Seventeen (Haunted) Syllables not about Dark Shadows:
2K19 blues.
Seems the new game kinda sucks.
MUSCLE didn't glitch.

RD has to squeeze in his obligation remaining Piper at the end, for shame. No space for spacing on the itinerary?

Episode 46: Avengers Argue: October 21, 2019

38 minutes

RD thinks their episodes have numbering discrepancies. Blade is left to quietly mumble yet again.

RD has to remind younger Blade about 45" records for some reason. (:04)

This week RD has no itinerary. Instead Blade thinks the two should argue-debate superhero/movies. This gets the old MovieTrolla running once again.

RD's favorite "comic book superhero movie of the last decade" confuses him slightly due to the dates. He goes with the obvious The Dark Knight followed by Spider-Man 2. (:10) "Edward Scissorhands does not count as a superhero movie." Blade goes with Sin City. He visited Peter Parker's pizzeria one time.

Blade had recently seen (The) Joker. Both enjoyed its morbid entertainment. (:12) Blade thinks it rivals his favorite movie of all time, Piranha 3D. 

For the favorite movie of the recent decade, Blade thankfully does not go for Sin City 2. (:17) He does however really connect with Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy, Deadpool 1 & 2, Suicide Squad (why?) and X-Men: Dark Phoenix (why?) alongside (The) Joker. He sticks with his X-Men guns, albeit honorably for once. (Yes, I know.) In that same turn, RD liked Avengers: Infinity War more than Endgame due to its excessive time traveling. (:22) Blade hasn't seen the latter due to Disney-MCU burnout, and randomly argues with him over watching things in actual cinemas. As part of his argument, he once tried to watch Logan on his one day off, only for it to be interrupted by a tornado warning. He had to wait another six months to see the rest of it. So...his viewpoint is better then?

Anyway, RD would go with Infinity War, Guardians of the Galaxy 1 & 2 (and its Mike Check era songs), Batman Vs Superman (his favorite, one of the few who liked it), Shazam, and Wonder Woman. (:30) Blade thinks Iron Man was in too many movies when he is not distracted by some of the movies he watches, if they even have come out yet, and he has actually seen them yet during his work.

To close out the recording, Blade only has one (1) choice to make. As expected, he fails.

286 SmackDrunk: September 30, 2019

A.E.W. Punk?
66 minutes

You can already tell Blade is drunk (All Inebriated WrestleCrap?) since he is confused by military terminology. He praises the WrestleCrap Girdlers at The Big Girdle.

RD: "Is every show we ever do like some kind of, you know, event? Some kind of milestone?"


RD: "It's been almost 20 years since you actually wrote anything on the site."

Drunk Blade wants a Male-Male-Male threesome.

RD compliments the very site you are reading. "They are fantastic people, they do fantastic work." (:12) Acting oppositely from his co-host, Drunk Blade had to deter a co-worker from becoming a 13th Listener.

RD offers Drunk Blade cinnamon apple straws, a variation of veggie straws. He likes them and its malic acid, the term that Blade would want as another indie wrestler persona (although it would fit better as a finisher in my opinion). (:15)

RD reminds people he once managed Mark Henry when he fought The Big Show, who is getting a Netflix comedy series (which is probably not this one). RD thinks he could play a neighbor teacher. Drunk Blade: "You could have thrown away a WWE career." (:21) Blade now has to avoid people due to his WC work, or something. His phone responds by avoiding him temporarily.

C.M. Punk is getting some sort of tryout on some show or other which might see his return to WWE. B.M. Punk disapproves. RD gives him one (log) line. (:32) Recovering Mickie James may do commentary on Main Event. Drunk Blade remains confused drunk.

Who else would they want to see return to commentate? (:35) RD wants Ernie Lad, Howard Finkel, and yelling Brian Knobbs. Drunk Blade can't count, but he wants (Satanic) Superstar Billy Graham, Susan St. James, the Black Scorpion (where would he have space for his magic tricks?), and Demolition Axe.

This week, RD reads the "You Asked Us!" column in The Wrestler Magazine June 1989 (:44). "Mat Reporter" Lori Long of Edmonton writes to the "British Bulldogs" to inquire about Matilda's condition. Drunk Blade thinks the tag team nursed her. I'm just glad none of his exes had a pet dog for him to try this out personally.

Paul Oparka of Facebook asks about reviving cereals. (:49) RD wants the return of Vanilla Captain Crunch which lasted three months in the 70s. Blade remembers Strawberry Shortcake (not Crunch?) cereal, but he wants ET cereal since they tasted like a woman or something. One wonders where he ate that cereal from.

WWE will have pyrotechnics again. Drunk Blade thinks they once killed someone, but sadly does not add that information onto a Wikipedia page. (:54)

Televised wrestling will be literally weekly, even before including indies and PPVs and whatever Impact is currently doing. Blade fears for his partner's health in following it all, rather than just reading summaries of them online like just about everyone else except him (all that daytime work while sober probably prevents him from being online too much, understandably).
Blade still uses a VCR to record wrestling in 2019?

Seventeen Syllables:
Way too much wrestling.
All of these shows. Gentlemen,
Start your VCRs.

285 By The Numbers: September 1, 2019

No comment.
70 minutes

The Anniversary is observed two weeks late because the Fruitcakes wanted to "discuss" All Out. RD teases things. Speaking of teasers, Mickie James turned 40. (:04) The two use the opportunity to ramble in reminiscence.

RD claims they had the proto-podcast, ideally run by wrestling ring veterans repeating the same jokes over and over. (:12) Once they can get the "hilarity" out of the way, he tries some Southern Recipe Cheesy Halapeno Flavored Curls (not to be confused with Herr's own) which taste similar to Cheetos. Blade reveals he is recording in his truck with the window down parked by a Target. Let's hope he doesn't fall out of it if he has to pee.

The Fruitcakes were unable to attend Starrcast III due to their conflicting schedules. (:24) Blade was one of the background staff in an upcoming Netflix revival of Unsolved Mysteries. RD is a Ninja Mime. C.M. Punk who did attend did neither, but he wishes to be in a Spider-Man movie instead. B.M. Punk disagrees naturally. He doesn't need to fall out of a truck if he has to poop, he'll have you know! (:29)

Today's Apter Mag Delight (:32) is Pro Wrestling Illustrated Weekly from exactly May 6, 1991 and has Ric Flair "concerned" with El Gigante without any sense of irony. Blade wanted to go to Washington D.C. to see Baby Doll in person.

RD again went to Facebook for his Question. (:39) Mike Still asks who's Becky. Or, as he wrote it: "WHOSE BECKY?!?!?" Blade and his ex have made amends and can now laugh over such things which he feels obligated to explain in case there are new listeners or something equally uncommon.

Blade reminds he used to work shows with Ken Patera's daughter. RD initially wants her and her old man booked to do swinging full nelsons at their Carnival before learning that he's 76 years young (and still hungry). (:42) Cracker Barrel's All Out with its VG Young Bucks was alright. Jim calls to congratulate himself for appearing on so many radio progrems and ask for his cut and a hot tag from Robert Gibson for some reason. (:50) He also gets his numbers wrong while preparing his Halloween turkeys. And I'll bet he doesn't need to fall out of a truck if he has to do so either! He also randomly got arrested while trying to buy fireworks and had to get Bob Caudle to bail him out since Hollywood John Tatum went to the circus or something. "Go fluff yourself!" he mumbles.

What are the two's favorite Mickie James moments? (:58) RD remembered her acting with Jennie Jones, her Christmas ornament, and her censored WM feud with Trish Stratus. Blade remembered her first appearance, attending a team battle in 2007 where she noticed his shirt, as well as that same Trish feud.
