Episode 25: Wooooing Cough: February 21, 2014

"Granny Panties" Machine
65 minutes

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

Sad News: RD & Blade are doing another recording two months after the last one. Say, did anyone remember when they said they wanted to do THIS show more frequently because WWCR also started the new year in two months later? About that...

ACTUAL Sad News: RD cracked his Niagara Falls Cup.

Blade asks RD what his favorite episode of the old show was because he's run out of ideas. RD reads over 'summaries' of the new show. (:05 - :14)

Sad News: Dick Woerhle is still no longer with us.

A bored RD goes through his Skype contacts. (:15)

Blade is still looking for a third Co-Hosss.

Sad News: Blade hasn't found any new Doritos flavors in recent days.

RD is willingly drinking Gatorade to battle his cough. (:21) He then mocks confused grocery shoppers with his Nathaniel Senior impression.

The Co-Fruitcakes wonder about the many new flavors and varieties crowding the food industry these days. Blade responds with his habitual obtuseness.

(Sad?) News: Blade is to 'star' in another of his friend's horror movies. (:32)

RD customized his Royal Rumble Pinball Machine and is willing to sell it off. (:37) Blade wants someone to Photoshop something involving Miss Elizabeth.

The WWE Network is still in plans to launch very soon. If hell freezes over and it actually does it has quite a lot of stuff that would interest somebody or other, including some classic stuff. RD does his Nathaniel Senior. (:40)

In response to a potential placing of NXT RD mentions Impact's 'ratings', which are as real as the city of Atlantis. (:48)

Blade is happy CM Punk has 'left' WWE because he doesn't have to subject himself to watching RAW anymore. (:49)

RD reads his Facebook page on the topic of great Divas' feuds (to see on TV) as an excuse to mock his Listeners. Blade considers Fabulous Moolah, Wendi Richter, and Rockin' Robin as 'hot'. (:53)

Sir Alec calls in to end the show. (:58) He 'recites' a Jeff Hardy promo, though it's hard to hear him through his loud music, the bad phone quality, and Blade distracting him with his laughter.

WCR Video: Wrestlecrap vs Demento (Part 2: Blade Strikes Back)

Damien Demento continues to knock wrestlecrap.com again in February 2009 (this video was also "fortunately" deleted) & he refers to R.D. & Blade as quote: "fruitcakes", unquote. Also after being called "That Fat Guy" by Demento, Blade Braxton (with Stubby) challenges Demento, or as Blade now calls him: "Damien DEPENDO", to a boxing match in his own "front" yard:

WWE Niagara Falls Cup (R.I.P. 2002-2014)

 by R.V.M Kai

We at wrestlecrapradio.com have received some sad news that would bring a tear to Robert Gibson's glass eye. On February 9, 2014, RD Reynolds of wrestlecrap.com discovered that his "WWE Niagara Falls Cup, has suffered a crack & will be permanently "put up on the shelf".

@WrestleCrapRD made the announcement on Twitter saying: "Cue the sad news music. My WWE Niagara Falls Cup has a crack. Going to have to wash it up and put it up on the shelf next to my You Suck tie".

The WWE Niagra Falls cup was purchased by RD Reynolds in 2002 at WWE Niagara Falls which was a retail store that WWE once operated in Canada (it has since ceased operation in 2011). From there, this "Stein sized" mug played an important part on Wrestlecrap Radio and The RD & Blade Show, where RD used to "take a sip" from it in order to quench his "dulcet tones" before every show. The cup was first featured on WCR's 2nd episode's cold open and has been featured on just about every podcast ever since. The WWE Niagara Falls cup was just 12 years old when it "cracked", but it will live on upon RD's shelf, and in our hearts, for many years to come.

So in memory of The WWE Niagara Falls cup, I have prepared a special Haiku:

Niagara Falls Cup,
You carried R.D.'s water
But now, only dust.

R.I.P. 2002-2014
Didn't know you were sick?

WCR Video: Wrestlecrap vs Demento (Part 1: The First Shoot)

Seeing that WCR Videos are running out of "brand new" videos to feature, for the upcoming few months we will feature a 9 part special about wrestlecrap.com's feud with former WWE wrestler Damien Demento. For those who don't know, Demento in late 2007 started uploading videos of himself on YouTube complaining that the Internet wrestling fans were referring to him as a jobber, since his most remembered match was the one where he lost to The Undertaker in the main event of WWE Raw's first episode. In particular, Demento took exception to the "Who's Damien Demento" comments made about him on Wrestlecrap forums & then proceeded to label the website as "WrestlingCrap". Although (fortunately) Demento has deleted many of his old rants, here's RD Reynolds' & Blade Braxton's "YouTube shoot", from early 2008, in response to him:
