001 Pilot: August 12, 2005

((( recorded in high phone-buzzing over-modulated fidelity ))) (23 minutes)

RD Reynolds welcomes us to what may be the only episode of WrestleCrap Radio. Ah, I can only wish. He and "RD's bitch" Blade Braxton discuss taking over Get In The Ring Radio to talk to Cheatum, the One Eyed Midget.

There are already a lot of contending candidates for the Gooker this year. This gives an excuse for Blade to compare the current WWE programming to Maude. (:04)

Bea Arthur: Patron Saint of WrestleCrap Radio

The Diva Search 2 is discussed, including the fact that its participants all look alike. RD's TiVo refused to tape Raw this week.

Speculation rages about whether Don Knotts is alive. (:10)

"I can't relate to the common class." - Vince McMahon, to Kerwin White.

WWE has hired twelve new writers. RD wonders what WWE writers actually do, and if it involves referencing years-old movies.

RD feels the need to announce that he's not gay.

Blade and RD can't wait for the Boogeyman to debut. Boogey's antlers in OVW remind RD of when Bobby Heenan would say that the Barbarian beat up a deer to get his antlers.

RD is perplexed that Heidenreich and Animal are World Tag Team Champions.

Blade utters a catchphrase from Happy Days. The show has already jumped the shark.

RD threatens to make a second episode of this show.
