Episode 39: Thank Ya: August 7, 2015

R.I.P to one of WCR's favorite people: Roddy Piper (1954-2015)
54 minutes

RD called Blade 'excellent' for the first time in their 13 year friendship.

RD wonders how the audio quality of their progrems have fallen compared to the 'golden age' of 2008. Blade responds by temporarily disconnecting.

WWE once wanted to make Brock Lesnar Popeye's brother if you know what I mean.

Matt Hardy & Reby Sky have given birth. (:12) This causes Blade to crack up for some reason. The kid's VHS/Kryptonian name (Max-El) reminds RD of the good old days of cassette tapes including good old BASF. RD uses his phone. Rosa Mendes is pregnant "with child" which is better than being pregnant "with chestburster". This causes Blade to crack up for some reason.

Sad News: The Deever is retiring (while also engaged). (:20) The two remember all the Diva Search 'candidates' that have come and gone.

Tammy skipped a court hearing. (:26) RD wants her to go to jail so that she (and her segment) appear less on the progrem.

The two shill their Archives some more by remembering all the strange impressions of Dennis Stamp and Terry Funk from many years ago. Which you can read about more on this very site, if I can take my turn to shill [...And if I could take my turn to shill; go to The Mike Check Show for all your "non-canon" musical adventures involving ole Mike and his big-boobed/whiz-kid daughter -R.V.M Kai]. Assuming the URL is still the same. Again.

:33 RD: "Why do all the new segments have horrible music?"

Apparently your "frequent" Dan Spivey (at war) update now has its own music. Did you know he will be turning 63 in October?

Blade does his (bad) David Lee Roth impression about lamps. I figure all he got he had to steal. (:37)

:38 WWE had to change a group's name because it was already taken by a porn corporation. Which is STILL a better place to work at than the top wrestling company in the world.

The duo reminisce about the greatness of Roddy Piper as he appeared on their progrem. Our condolences to all of his close and loved ones; may he rest in peace.  (:41 - end)
