264 Rogue Two: December 23, 2016

Comes with "magic wand" as illustrated.
92 minutes

Blade already forgot what he wanted to say. He did remember when they opened presents after Christmas on their old show. He is once more recording from his bed. RD calls him the Tiny Tim/Blade to his Bob Crotchet. Blade threatens to fall asleep on air.

To get it out of the way the duo follow that hallowed Christmas tradition of debating about Star Wars. (:05) Blade fell asleep while watching Rogue One: A Star Wars (Christmas) Story, though due to his fatigue from overwork rather than Darth Vader choking him into unconsciousness (and not the drink for once, surprisingly).

RD: "Wait woah woah woah woah woah woah wait a minute, woah, time out. I want to make sure I'm following this. You went to drink before you go to the movies because doing such makes you feel like a kid again. So you went and saw the original Star Wars movies drunk? As a child?"

Blade ranks the movie and "Video Game Peter Cushing" below Episodes IV - VII  and higher than Ewok Adventure if that's any indicator of quality, at a similar level to RD. HE also fell asleep initially, though out of waiting boredom on his part. I also agree with them too on their opinion. So there then, that's settled. Yes, for once.

(Someone should really make ordered listings of our favorite Star Wars movies, now that I think about it.)

Blade wants the Browns to go 0-16 (just two more losses as of this writing!), which combined with their preseason 0-4 will beat the legendarily bad 0-16 2008 Lions. (:15) This inspired football commentary almost puts RD to sleep once again before he can shill his site's Black Friday in December special.

Speaking of Black Friday RD is ready to regale the 12 Listeners with tales of things that happened a month ago. (:18) At Target, a guy in a line smelled of mothballs and almost blinded him. Blade enjoys going to Target for their tan pants. A woman in the toys section complained "I ain't paying $80 for Chewbacca! I want Yoda! The one with the magic wand!"

Little Debbie has some delicious treats for the holidays as per tradition. One of them is the Egg Nog Cake Roll which RD is trying despite it being a couple of weeks expired. Needless to say it doesn't go down well with him. (:31) Mike Check is drawn in by it (:37) and by his time in Santa Claus, Indiana's, WRUD Rudolf 1225 AM as Billy "Egg" Nog who together with his lady of the day Candy Throat did the Egg Nog Down Your Throat In The Morning. He's so old he repeat plays a Dolly Parton song he previously did once before. Yes, I remember such random things as this, and I have no idea how good or bad that is. I wonder if I can put it on a resume.

Davey Boy Smith Jr. had a tonsillectomy. RD has to look up and explain to Blade what tonsils are. (:43)

Jesse Godderz and Victoria are on some Amazon Prime show, but you shouldn't get a subscription just/only to watch that. Instead check out The Grand Tour. While an excellent show in its own right regardless of how much you may like automobiles or not, they have a parody segment related to their old show on Top Gear that REEKS of WWCR (which as we just found out smells like mothballs). They bring celebrities on the show supposedly to do racing segments with, only for them to have 'deadly accidents' on the way to the traveling studio tent, causing trio-host James May to ask "Does that mean he's not coming on the show then?" Such a thing isn't everyone's cup of tea of course, but to a perverse and scarred Listener of such things on this here radio progrem I can't help but always be intrigued by what will happen this week.

Mickie James is returning to the main WWE roster. (:48) Blade had to pass up another opportunity to see her perform nearby.

Paige and Alberto Del Rio got into a random scuffle about bad touches down in Mexico with a luchador who uses a bad shortening of Raphael (Rafy). (:51) Meanwhile they have a new Mexican restaurant (!) which isn't doing so well. But of course. RD reads a customer review on it. Blade's friend had a "H Beef K" sandwich with Shawn Michaels' involvement.

Derek Quinn of the Powerhouse of Sound DJ Service (2) asks them about the worst Christmas song. Sadly Mike Check does not return to give his thoughts. (:59) They use it as an excuse to play that Twelve Days Of Christmas song of theirs again once more. Padding? You don't say! ( - :70)

RD thanks friend James Weck for sending him some doughnuts from Anaheim.

Jordan Mishkin sent them some old wrestling videos among other DVDs. He also sent Blade some Cape Cod kettle chips which he tries to his liking. Erik Majorwitz sent RD a 20 year old Tam/my Bend-Em figure, poor guy. Paul Kraft also gave him an "unexplainable" "The Original LightBowl" to stick inside a toilet seat to light it up to prevent falling inside one.

Meanwhile I had sent them both yet another timely ZZ Top album. I think one more gets me Billy Gibbons' beard for free. (:81) RD plays Sleeping Bag and Velcro Fly for old times' sake, and I am now self persuaded to buy a copy for myself.

RD sent Blade a T-shirt with Bossk on it and a Jim Wynorski movie signed by the man himself and starring Traci Lords. (:86)

Sad News: Blade either forgot or was delayed or was too broke to send RD a gift. He punishes Blade by saying this week's Haiku (probably because Blade either forgot or was delayed or was too broke to write one):
Blade sent no present.
You know what? That is OK.
No Fun with Tammy.

Blade threatens his Big Announcement some more in response.

WCR Video: Minisode Flashback #130: Mega X-Mas!

For the six of you who probably paid attention to the debacle that is The Mike Check Show's Halloween Hootenanny back in October, the undead Zombie version of Nathaniel was once again killed off by "Broken" Matt Hardy's drone; 'Vanguard One' after it carried a pair of audio speakers onto Mike's doorstep to play the song "Halloween Spooks" (yes, the sound of that song along with "Monster Mash" will kill Zombies by making their heads explode "Mars Attacks style", apparently?).

In the days before being resurrected as a Zombie in wrestlecrapradio.com's "expanded universe", Nathaniel Edward Rodham Davis (aka N.E.R.D) was one of Wrestlecrap Radio's TNA correspondents who would constantly annoy RD and Blade with his over-the-top TNA fandom. He was originally killed off during WCR Christmas Episode #130 on December 19, 2008 by another 'drone', The Megatrolla, that was sent to him as a gift from 'The Trolla Corporation'.

...And you can relive that moment along with; Don and the dwarf, Crown Royal and Egg Nog and Angry Jim recording his Christmas album, right here:
