WCR Video: Interactive: The Karate Crap

Since The Mike Check Show is playing 2007 song "Sweep The Leg" and then a few rarities from the Karate Kid film franchise (as well as songs from the new YouTube red series "Cobra Kai"), here's RD and Blade doing commentary on one of the songs from the first "Karate Kid" film's soundtrack; "The Moment of Truth" from Wrestlecrap Radio episode #158 in 2009:

273 Heel-Off: May 13, 2018


 27 minutes
The face of a man who thinks Hogan beating
Sting after a year of build-up was a good idea

Kai has also written something about this. Give it a look too won't you?

Blade is outside on a live remote getting heatstroke "like a lobster in a way." RD would eat some lobster if it would improve his spirits, especially if Sting delivered it to him, preferably while attached to a helicopter.

Blade: "I write the itineraries. Sometimes."

The cause of this impromptu recording is THIS MAN: former wrestling bigwig Eric Bischoff (or Bitchoff as the Honky Tonk non-Mail-Man likes to call him). He has own podcast now you see. (:04) All you need to know about it and him is that it's called 83 Weeks, referring to the time period where Nitro beat Raw in the ratings...over 21 years ago. If it were a living person it would be old enough to drink, probably to forget about Thunder.

It's only the second episode (of his show, not WWCR, although it feels like that sometimes) and we learn that Eric has a sudden grudge against RD. An except (:07 - :11) has his co-host Conrad Thompson read to him one (1) passage from The Death Of WCW about how bad the once red-hot WCW ended up becoming under his watch, on its way to losing $15 million in 1999. Speaking in phone-buzzing echoing fidelity Eric rambled against RD and Bryan Alvarez about how the "clowns" didn't interview him for the book (despite not actually responding to their original questions) and misread his actual financial standing, and that he won't sign "a book he didn't write" ( to quote RD who has his own heel promo against him).

Fig.1: Eric Bischoff's actual financial standing in action
RD thinks Eric has more of an issue of his unflattering image on the original cover as seen at the top of this here post. This is despite other original cover guys Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Vince Russo not minding signings, and two of those three remain happily and healthily active in WWE and elsewhere (unlike Eric). RD also reminds that he also wrote in the book that Eric was a pioneering genius who's early success with Nitro should be studied and emulated, and helped bring professional wrestling into the 21st century (:14). This was kept in the reprint even after he was kicked out of TNA.

In another podcast excerpt (:15 - :17) co-host Conrad manages to persuade Eric to go to Starrcast by All-In in Chicago in September to continue to passionately flail and fail in person about how in fact, WCW's downfall was actually a good thing, or something.

Why is he intently reading
the dust jacket?
RD announces that he too will be there to face him, he will bring Blade as backup, and among other featured guests Kevin Sullivan and JJ Dillon will be there (perhaps as judges). Blade brings back the idea of holding the WWCR Carnival (:21) and perhaps after they are done with that they can join in the Roast of Bruce Prichard as well. (Coincidentally Hall and Nash will also be there as featured guests. Also coincidentally Russo will not.)

Additionally, in regard's to Eric's attempts to continue being a rabble-rousing tough guy heel persona (admittedly still far too widespread and outdated in the profession outside of the ring and active working as a whole) in a bid to remain relevant and not left behind as the industry changes, they just seem somewhat embarrassing, and this is during a time where such bluster is accepted and even sometimes rewarded. His now white hair belies his older years of no longer being a leader on the air as he was before let alone being a persona non grata in WWE, his long time rival even now. Before in the so called "good old days" he could make out with middle-aged housewives just because he could. Now they are the only legible people in his current dating pool (if such a thing is applicable) without paying upfront first.

(Let us hope he uses protection though even now. We don't want another Garrett Bischoff running around now, do we?)

WCR Video: Cartoon: "I'm Tired Of Hearing About Eric Bischoff!"

In the first "Breaking News" edition of Wrestlecrap Radio (#273) in half a decade (discounting that time two years ago when Matt Hardy threw a baby at Brother Nero Jeff), RD Reynolds and Blade Braxton play clips from the 2nd episode of Former WCW President Eric Bischoff's new podcast "83 Weeks" (which dealt with the infamous "Finger Poke of Doom", where on the post Starrcade 1998 edition of WCW Monday Nitro, Kevin Nash laid down for Hulk Hogan after a simple zap from his finger to lose the WCW World Title). The clips involved Eric's co-host Conrad Thompson (also the co-host of the popular podcasts "Something To Wrestle With" with Bruce Prichard and "What Happened When" with Tony Schiavone) using RD and Bryan Alvarez's "The Death Of WCW" book as a reference, and Eric refusing to give the book any credibility and calling the authors, quote: "Clowns", unquote (we actually prefer the term "Fruitcakes", but whatever?).

Oh Wait? The Video? Well, this progrem reminded me of an old cartoon I made using GoAnimate.com featuring "a very loosely based" account of Blade's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend throwing a fit about the very person mentioned in this topic:

The Mike Check Show Conquers The Martians: 7 YEARS OF WHACKIN'! (April 2018)

*(NOTE: For more MIKE CHECK SHOW Anniversary specials, click here)

This was "The Mike Check Show's" 7th Anniversary special, in April 2018, where Mike Check celebrated it on Mars....NO...Actually Mike was abducted by Martians and forced to spin the hits exclusively over on the red planet (...although the show was simulcast on Earth anyway, so whatever?).

So why did this happen? Well, in 2016, Mike played the Slim Whitman song from the film "Mars Attacks" in an attempt to kill "Zombie" Nathaniel at the end of that years' "Halloween Hootenanny". One year later, at the conclusion of "Halloween Hootenanny 2017" it was revealed that the song had also coincidentally killed off an evil Race of Martians. So the "good" Martians show their gratitude in Mike Check 'inadvertently' helping them win "The Great Martian War" by saving him and his daughter from STAN: The Evil Troll Lord and his son Damien from wreaking Havoc and imprison them in "The Phantom Zone" (similar to "Superman II"). They and also found Mike's music "fascinating" (as ole Mike would say) as it was a brand new concept for them. The Martians also promise to return in 5 months time but give no reason as to why? Doc Brown (from "Back To The Future") later arrives and warns Mike and his daughter of a future Martian newspaper headline that leads them to believe that The Martians may possibly want to invade or destroy the Earth on their return, for some odd reason?

During February 2018's "Love On The Ropes Month", the Martians make another appearance as they request a week of love songs from Mike, in which they found (again) "fascinating" and make the decision to return to Earth...but every time their "true intentions" for doing so is about to be mentioned, there is a break down in their communication signal. So during March, Mike still thinks that the Martians want to invade and tries to appease them by playing some "Flying Saucer" novelty song records. This eventually leads The leader of Mars, Kimar, to arrive to Earth on the 1st day of Mike's "7 YEARS OF WHACKIN'!". But even though he reveals that he comes "in peace", he also "abducts" Mike and brings him to Mars to be their deejay and to play the hits "that play well in their Market" (similar to the plot of the 1964 film "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians")...not just for Mike's Anniversary, but for the rest of his life!

(*Spoilers*) So during April 2018 (or whatever month/year it is on the planet Mars?) Kimar forces Mike to work "The Mike Check Show" in the Martian market and provides him some co-hosts; Checkdar, Jimdar and Gaiedar (the last two seem awfully similar to a couple of Wrestlecrap Radio Characters) until the show grinds to a halt as Mike has an "encounter" with Jimdar's wife that lands him back in 'The Slammer'. Mike is sentenced for execution but the whole proceedings are interrupted by the return of STAN and Damien when their "Phantom Zone" crash lands and shatters on Mars, thus freeing them. STAN plans to take over Mars, and later the Earth, but will his plans for "Universal Domination" be spoiled by the arrival of Doc Brown and..."The Crapvengers"...you'll have to click on the following links to find out?
