Episode 28: Vince Russo 3D: May 5, 2014

This says it all.
97 minutes

[Note: Seeing as how there wasn't much from my end to write and I was too tired to think up anything for this particular progrem, Kai picked up things from there. For fun, try to guess which parts are his and which are mine.]

Vince Russo is on the show on his own volition for the third time despite Blade's attempts to chase him off. Unlike the first time (all about wrestling), and the second (all not about wrestling), this go about is more in the middle.

The Co-Fruitcakes first talk to Vince about his Big Announcement.........that he apparently has a website of his own now. (Which is also taken under THIS URL too.) Yep, that's it. Were you expecting something else?

In light of Vince's new nostalgia website, the Co-Fruitcakes talk wrestling nostalgia for the first half hour, where Vince mentions that he would only order the WWE network if Tuesday Night Titans was available, especially the episodes featuring Fuji Vice. (:5). They also talk about the time he wrote for WWF Magazine and almost left to go to WCW in the mid-90's after he found out that there were plans for Jim Neidhart's alter-ego "WHO" to get a tag team partner called "WHAT". Yes, really. (:30)

To appease the 12 listeners, current wrestling is briefly mentioned where Vince talks about his opinion of Bray Wyatt (not "WHAT") and Daniel Bryan (feel better now?) (:48). But talk then turns to Vince's time when he and his cop buddy would shake down people for their late returned video tapes. Good times! (Except for the customer.) He then spends what seems like 6 hours talking about his love for the the VHS and 8-track tape (especially his Barbra Streisand one) (:54).

The gloves are off when Vince and Blade "debate" over KISS's induction in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Vince thinks that the current line-up is a "cover band" and that only the original four should be inducted (:76). The show finishes off where Vince plugs his website pyroandballyhoo.com again and talks about 1966 Batman, Kimye and Tiny Tim (:86).

Oh, I almost forgot! There may have been a mention about Vince NOT currently working for TNA and NOT currently being under contract with any wrestling company (:43), but nobody wants to know about that, eh?
