WCR Video: Interactive: Mickie James Christmas Song

RD Reynolds & Blade Braxton do an interactive segment on Mickie James' Music Video of her Christmas song "Christmas Presence" (from Wrestlecrap Radio: Episode #289, 2019). In this clip; RD is distracted by Mickie's reindeer nose nipple on her Christmas sweater...and we all thought that Blade was the one with the filthy mind?

289 Moistmas: December 22, 2019

Mickie the Red Nosed Nipple
77 minutes

Blade doesn't have any proper Big Announcements anymore. This is assuming he even had any in the first place.

Lord Alfred had a MySpace page before Blade deleted it. RD: "Is Lord Alfred also a Force ghost? A Jedi ghost?"

The two will discuss Episode IX later for their RD & Blade Show to be released yesterday.

This year RD reviewed a particularly horrible Christmas movie.

Blade: "I was thinking about that while I was on the toilet a few minutes ago." (:12)

RD has met many characters over the years on Black Friday or Brown Thursday as he now calls it. (:14) Blade apologizes for interrupting but he wonders who else does this while encountering RD.  This year at the "nicer" Walmart due to his 'strategy' the wife and son got to see a scuffle, while RD met a 'lovely/moist' woman. She was discussing Thanksgiving dinner with another woman before suddenly saying "that guy smells like shit." (Not RD thankfully.) He teases his brother having his own stories to tell (assuming he doesn't smell either).

Bobby Eaton had an appreciation night the other day, which is a good thing. (:30)

Mickie James has a new Christmas song which has four thumbs down. The two watch it. (:33) RD is distracted by her reindeer nose nipple. (Odd design for a pastie to be sure.)

RD cheats for the Question (:41) by going to the F4W Board for it. (A subscription is required for access.) Someone on a 'beautiful women of wrestling appreciation thread' wants random fetishistic pictures of now 50+ year old Misty Blue Simmes. Blade did some searching of Unsolved Mysteries with Robert Sack - Indiana Jones in order to find a "movie" of hers. Sadly I don't think they cover the fetish that one guy was looking for.

Barry Darsow scared RD by talking about Ken Patera. (:47) Billy Jack Haynes has wild hair. Blade will have a Beastmaster Christmas, whatever that means. [It means an online showing of Beastmaster movies which - surprise surprise - gets aborted halfway through.] Roman Reigns will be competing on Fox for New Year's Eve. Blade wants him to compete in a three legged race against Zack Gowan.

Things I've learned today: over the years, the only people who are sending presents have been Jordan Mishkin and myself. Maybe next year we will complete the triangle and send presents to each other too. (:55)

Jordan sent RD gluten free baby back ribs chips, a King Mabel bendem, and a Jim Cornette book (now with 100% more racism). Blade got a Predator 2 VHS and football Headliners. He eats some Guinness naturally flavored Burts chips. They seem to taste better than RD's.

I had sent for RD and his young man an R2D2 lunch box with lights and sounds. (I did not check to see if it was wash safe, though it should be.) He also got an Artoo Thermos as a probable replacement for his WWE Niagara Falls Cup. (As ridiculously useful flasks to keep large amounts of fluid hot or cold at their required temperatures for hours or days at a time, they can't be beat.)

Blade got a NES cartridge shaped "Drunk Hunt" flask via Nintendo John, "the greatest gift you will ever get" (although Blade cannot receive a picture of it on his phone unsurprisingly; probably spending all his money on drink instead of a new phone), and a grip strengthening beer mug via Jim. RD: "People know you."

Blade sent RD a 1996 Tam bikini koozie. (Isn't she still in jail?) RD sent Blade a He-Man Christmas sweater with a funny holiday card.

I have seventeen syllables for words:
Deck the halls with lots
of moistness, fa la la la

Episode 47: Star Warhorse: December 21, 2019

41 minutes

Your annual reminder that Blade once
dressed up as Darth Maul for Halloween
in order to scare his sister.
RD eats some thematic cereal with "all natural marshmallows". But does he use blue milk?

He is planning to go see Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker again since he liked the majority of it, even if it was "a series of video game cutscenes" a half hour too long with an attack of the cloned Palpatine. (:06) Blade rambles on about how the old movies were also with little explanation during "the search for Porkins." He further confuses by agreeing with RD on liking the movie. [As do I...from a certain point of view.]

Blade finds the Ewoks' ideas intriguing to him, and he wishes to subscribe to their newsletter. (:14)

RD admits he wrote The Book of Lists Exclamation Point because he believes lists are dumb. (:16) He then does his old mother impression because "talking with you is fascinating."

After or perhaps because of said impression, he pulls in his wife, appalled that he doesn't like space horses. (:23) She no sells one of Blade's signature bad jokes.

RD found the pandering fan service laughable, including Chewbacca finally getting his medal on film. Blade stresses out for some reason. They then argue over ships. (:28)

RD shoots down yet another of Blade's half-baked theories about dying characters, including one Death Star destroyer. (:31)

Blade got over his jadedness to confirm (again) that he liked the movie, giving it two yubnubs up despite the lack of Bossk or midriffs. He does not yet have Disney+. He has LaserDiscs for that.

Blade now likes the prequels ironically. RD pounces, mercilessly using it to his advantage to shut him down and end the show. It's all in the timing. (:38)

288 The Turkey Drop: November 25, 2019

A Turkey Of A Show!
95 minutes

Blade has already started the Thanksgiving drinking. He has to since his voice is shot from shouting while wrestling the day before.

RD wants more Hundred Dollar Men/Crappers so he can wear a Nikolai Volkoff Cent Sign shirt on their behalf. I'm sure Virgil would come free regardless of cost.

WWE is so bad it makes RD think it can be improved by old Hulk Hogan freestyling. (:10)

The Lions are playing so awfully that Blade is time-outing himself so he can forget/ignore them. (:12) RD already encountered Little Debbie Snowflake Brownies which are like all the rest. So he calls up his lady to try their Holiday Spice Christmas Tree Cake. It has cinnamon, cloves, & nutmeg on the front, and a square maze on the back. It tastes alright. RD persuades her to return to the show sooner than 10 years like the last time.

Blade's only child and potential heir is a ventriloquist dummy who once took a fall onto hard concrete. (He got better.) (:23) Brock Lesnar's daughter Maya has committed to Arizona State University due to her exemplary shot-putting. Blade stumbles while trying to make another "joke". Tito Santana has written a book titled Don't Call Me Chico. RD wonders if Jesse "Chico" Ventura will write a foreword. Blade remembers the possibility of Hulk Hogan vs. Ken Patera's swinging full nelson at Wrestlemania IV. Purchasing the book also includes a phone call with its author. Blade would want him on the show so he could ask him about women in cars. RD would ask him about his "bullfighting training".

RD wants to discuss wrestling things to be grateful for while Blade wants a "quick show", preferably within 3 hours. (:34) RD is grateful for Blade and his corded phone and the other connections he has made with his site, AEW vs. NXT on Wednesday, and the WWE Network where he can watch Survivor Series Jimmy Garvin. Random discussion about Linda McMahon's old Wrestlemania theme ensues. Blade is grateful for his Midnight Rose and Mr. Fitness 2 tag teaming for around a decade now and in movies and hopefully visiting the UK in January, Mickie James still being around and active (instead of Tammy), and Demolition still being around and whole.

Eric K. asks what their favorite Thanksgiving food is. (:50) RD's is pecan pie. Blade rambles about eating room temperature raw turkey when he was younger.

RD wants Bill Apter on the show again. (:55) He could discuss PWI October 1991 of which Blade guesses features Sid Vicious. The centerfold is Lex Luger. The back cover is Captain Lou Albano with his awkward wrestling hotline 1-900-LOU-4-YOU. I don't think he would have given Super Mario Bros 3 tips over that.

15 year old Blade recorded a JR hotline on cassette tape because he thought he hosted a late night talk show and felt ripped off when he found out the truth. He does his Jim impression.

Speaking of old cassette tapes, Mike Check is back in his "Eye in the Sky", the WWCR Party helicopter as part of his live remote. (:66) His idea is...such...that WKRP In Cincinatti famously did this before Jim could: a turkey drop. However, this time is different!

He has parachutes for them.

Needless to say, he has another 'accident' as it is proven that, once again, as God is our witness, turkeys still can't fly.

(Also he apparently worked with Jaime Farr in Toledo.)

RD Jr. went to his first show with his old man, AEW Dynamite in Indianapolis. (:75) RD notes his kid is following the same route he took at his age; being more interested in games with the wrestling interest perhaps coming up later while growing ridiculously tall. RD thinks the promotion and audience comprise a "happy cult", most likely because it did not have that wrestling arena aroma. They were the only ones who tried to leave before the Dark taping since Jr. had an early day, and one fan was super excited that Cody Rhodes was coming. At least Jr. seemed to enjoy the whole thing.

The Co-Hosses could only record all this during the concurrently running Survivor Series. Why is that a bad thing?

One of the 12 Listeners appeared on 205 Live.

WCR Video - The Hulk Hogan Experiment

This time on WCR Videos: we visit The Hulk Hogan Experiment. Back in 2008, RD Reynolds and Blade Braxton did a Wrestlecrap Radio (episode #126) Interactive segment where they sampled music, from a MySpace page, of a rapper who tries to sound as gruff as the Hulkster himself. RD also thought that these tracks sound a lot better than that of the actual Huskster on the "Hulk Rules" album.

As requested by Blade Braxton, himself, the following lost WCR Video has been re-uploaded in full.

Back in 2009, RD Reynolds and Blade Braxton did a Wrestlecrap Radio (episode #162) Interactive segment on a YouTube video where, former "Wrestling Superstar" Virgil (Jones?), had a rather bizarre interview at some random con, whereby he tried to hit on his interviewers. As a bonus, Sir Alec then reads the bizarre YouTube comments.

287 The Angry Gym: October 31, 2019

WWE2k20 Glitch or artist's impression of Becky Lynch in a Haunted Gym?
89 minutes

Huey has a laughing fit while Drunk Blade rambles.

Blade does not remember (m)any of their old episodes, both on Patreon and on this site (somewhere). RD: "They do a lot of fine work. We should recognize them thusly." Blade: "It will be something."

Roddy Piper also has something. He reminds kids to wear neon to ward off the danger of idiots driving cars. (:12) The two have names for his posse. Might I suggest the John Nada Carpenters?

Blade and Don are stuck inside the War on Candy Corn, which has heavy fighting on both sides. (:14) RD tries Ultimate Cheddar Flavor Doritos with Cheetos extract which tastes alright. Blade is stuck on Tron's Brach's butterscotch discs, "the tan things you suck on". He reminds RD on his age.

RD decides to talk about wrestling. (:24) Rick "Eyes" Steiner's son Bronson is doing well Running Backing in college football. Blade thinks he will last in the new XFL's one season, particularly as they now have suddenly open spaces due to paying players a salary between "jack" and "shit". Blade thinks retired players should play again for some reason. I am sure it would be worth risking their health once again.

[Bronson would get the last laugh when drafted by the Baltimore Ravens while the new XFL didn't even last one whole season. I am sad he did not have to use uncle Scott's math skills however. - Future PB]

Matt Hardy and Reby Sky will be parents again for the third time. (:32) RD gets ahead of Blade and non-directly says that she likes to f-ollow through on things.

Jim calls with horror music, a by-product of "The Angry Gym", a 'haunted gym'. They'll scare the fat out of you! (:36) He tells them to call Dave Meltzer to tell him to go fuck himself, or something. RD decides to do just that as per his itinerary, so that he can play an excerpt from his podcast with Bryan Alvarez where he tells him about some very seductive weights. Piper reminds RD to say please and thank ya to him next time.

Bill Apter had a birthday last week. (:45) "Wrestling's Power Brokers" is the cover story of Wrestling Superstars October 1990. Ken Patera and Black Scorpion are NOT on the list, but somebody named "Big Juice" is. "Dr. Death" Steve Williams is #1, possibly from Jim's haunted gym. Demolition Smash is #14.

Jim calls back in so RD has to rush to cue up his horror music. Such good coordination I see. (:53) Bob Caudle is literally running for his life so Jim speeds him off his treadmill. "Shove it up your ass!"

As can be expected with Blade's intellect and/or sobriety, at no point does he make the obvious CrossFit joke.

Blade wants to be Ken Patera's Swinging Full Nelson for Halloween. (:56) RD admonishes Blade for not knowing how to count. Blade: "Put that on my tombstone."

In relation to another bad WWE T-shirt in the recent news which does not feature Sin Cara's penis, what are some GOOD wrestling T-shirts? RD has Andre the Giant 5X worn by Stephanie McMahon belted as a mini (Blade thinks they should be worn by female companions), Blade's 2004 WCW Dungeon of Doom, and Survivor Series 1987 sent to and from Blade. He still can't count. He has to look up a 10th Anniversary Mickie James crotch-licking, (breast-feeding) Matilda, and Demolition's first "band-aid" shirt to show that they had finally made it. Sad News: Blade's AtG shirt was only XL instead of 5X which he did not belt as a mini, colored pink when his mother washed it, and bleaching it only shrunk it, before he discarded it ten years later.

WWE 2K20 is hilariously awful. That won't stop the two from wanting to buy a copy and see how so bad it's good it is in person. (:75) Blade was worried by one visual of a glitching referee having a seizure. Nintendo John agrees and bleeps himself. So does his audience.

RD found some "Haunted" Haiku music for Seventeen (Haunted) Syllables not about Dark Shadows:
2K19 blues.
Seems the new game kinda sucks.
MUSCLE didn't glitch.

RD has to squeeze in his obligation remaining Piper at the end, for shame. No space for spacing on the itinerary?

Episode 46: Avengers Argue: October 21, 2019

38 minutes

RD thinks their episodes have numbering discrepancies. Blade is left to quietly mumble yet again.

RD has to remind younger Blade about 45" records for some reason. (:04)

This week RD has no itinerary. Instead Blade thinks the two should argue-debate superhero/movies. This gets the old MovieTrolla running once again.

RD's favorite "comic book superhero movie of the last decade" confuses him slightly due to the dates. He goes with the obvious The Dark Knight followed by Spider-Man 2. (:10) "Edward Scissorhands does not count as a superhero movie." Blade goes with Sin City. He visited Peter Parker's pizzeria one time.

Blade had recently seen (The) Joker. Both enjoyed its morbid entertainment. (:12) Blade thinks it rivals his favorite movie of all time, Piranha 3D. 

For the favorite movie of the recent decade, Blade thankfully does not go for Sin City 2. (:17) He does however really connect with Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy, Deadpool 1 & 2, Suicide Squad (why?) and X-Men: Dark Phoenix (why?) alongside (The) Joker. He sticks with his X-Men guns, albeit honorably for once. (Yes, I know.) In that same turn, RD liked Avengers: Infinity War more than Endgame due to its excessive time traveling. (:22) Blade hasn't seen the latter due to Disney-MCU burnout, and randomly argues with him over watching things in actual cinemas. As part of his argument, he once tried to watch Logan on his one day off, only for it to be interrupted by a tornado warning. He had to wait another six months to see the rest of it. So...his viewpoint is better then?

Anyway, RD would go with Infinity War, Guardians of the Galaxy 1 & 2 (and its Mike Check era songs), Batman V Superman (his favorite, one of the few who liked it), Shazam, and Wonder Woman. (:30) Blade thinks Iron Man was in too many movies when he is not distracted by some of the movies he watches, if they even have come out yet, and he has actually seen them yet during his work.

To close out the recording, Blade only has one (1) choice to make. As expected, he fails.

286 SmackDrunk: September 30, 2019

A.E.W. Punk?
66 minutes

You can already tell Blade is drunk (All Inebriated WrestleCrap?) since he is confused by military terminology. He praises the WrestleCrap Girdlers at The Big Girdle.

RD: "Is every show we ever do like some kind of, you know, event? Some kind of milestone?"


RD: "It's been almost 20 years since you actually wrote anything on the site."

Drunk Blade wants a Male-Male-Male threesome.

RD compliments the very site you are reading. "They are fantastic people, they do fantastic work." (:12) Acting oppositely from his co-host, Drunk Blade had to deter a co-worker from becoming a 13th Listener.

RD offers Drunk Blade cinnamon apple straws, a variation of veggie straws. He likes them and its malic acid, the term that Blade would want as another indie wrestler persona (although it would fit better as a finisher in my opinion). (:15)

RD reminds people he once managed Mark Henry when he fought The Big Show, who is getting a Netflix comedy series (which is probably not this one). [Aaaaaand it's gone. Did WWE Films have a hand in it? - Erik Majorwitz] RD thinks he could play a neighbor teacher. Drunk Blade: "You could have thrown away a WWE career." (:21) Blade now has to avoid people due to his WC work, or something. His phone responds by avoiding him temporarily.

C.M. Punk is getting some sort of tryout on some show or other which might see his return to WWE. B.M. Punk disapproves. RD gives him one (log) line. (:32) Recovering Mickie James may do commentary on Main Event. Drunk Blade remains confused drunk.

Who else would they want to see return to commentate? (:35) RD wants Ernie Lad, Howard Finkel, and yelling Brian Knobbs. Drunk Blade can't count, but he wants (Satanic) Superstar Billy Graham, Susan St. James, the Black Scorpion (where would he have space for his magic tricks?), and Demolition Axe.

This week, RD reads the "You Asked Us!" column in The Wrestler Magazine June 1989 (:44). "Mat Reporter" Lori Long of Edmonton writes to the "British Bulldogs" to inquire about Matilda's condition. Drunk Blade thinks the tag team nursed her. I'm just glad none of his exes had a pet dog for him to try this out personally.

Paul O'Parka of Facebook (2) asks about reviving cereals. (:49) RD wants the return of Vanilla Captain Crunch which lasted three months in the 70s. Blade remembers Strawberry Shortcake (not Crunch?) cereal, but he wants ET cereal since they tasted like a woman or something. One wonders where he ate that cereal from.

WWE will have pyrotechnics again. Drunk Blade thinks they once killed someone, but sadly does not add that information onto a Wikipedia page. (:54)

Televised wrestling will be literally weekly, even before including indies and PPVs and whatever Impact is currently doing. Blade fears for his partner's health in following it all, rather than just reading summaries of them online like just about everyone else except him (all that daytime work while sober probably prevents him from being online too much, understandably).
Blade still uses a VCR to record wrestling in 2019?

285 By The Numbers: September 1, 2019

No comment.
70 minutes

The Anniversary is observed two weeks late because the two wanted to "discuss" AEW All Out. RD teases things. Speaking of teasers, Mickie James turned 40. (:04) The two use the opportunity to ramble in reminiscence.

RD claims they had the proto-podcast, ideally run by wrestling ring veterans repeating the same jokes over and over. (:12) Once they can get the "hilarity" out of the way, he tries some Southern Recipe Cheesy Halapeno Flavored Curls (not to be confused with Herr's own) which taste similar to Cheetos. Blade is recording in his truck with the window down parked by a Target. Let's hope he doesn't fall out of it if he has to pee.

The Co-Fruitcakes were unable to attend Starrcast III due to their conflicting schedules. (:24) Blade was one of the background staff in an upcoming Netflix revival of Unsolved Mysteries. RD is a Ninja Mime. C.M. Punk who did attend did neither, but he wishes to be in a Spider-Man movie instead. B.M. Punk disagrees naturally. He doesn't need to fall out of a truck if he has to poop, he'll have you know! (:29)

Today's Apter Mag Delight (:32) is Pro Wrestling Illustrated Weekly from exactly May 6, 1991 and has Ric Flair "concerned" with El Gigante without any sense of irony. Blade wanted to go to Washington D.C. to see Baby Doll in person.

RD again went to Facebook for his Question. (:39) Mike Still asks who's Becky. Or, as he wrote it: "WHOSE BECKY?!?!?" Blade and his ex have made amends and can now laugh over such things which he feels obligated to explain in case there are new listeners or something equally uncommon.

Blade reminds RD that he used to work shows with Ken Patera's daughter. RD initially wants her and her old man booked to do swinging full nelsons at their Carnival before learning that he's 76 years young (and still hungry). (:42) Cracker Barrel's All Out with its VG Young Bucks was alright. Jim calls to congratulate himself for appearing on so many radio progrems and ask for his cut and a hot tag from Robert Gibson for some reason. (:50) He also gets his numbers wrong while preparing his Halloween turkeys. And I'll bet he doesn't need to fall out of a truck if he has to do so either! He also randomly got arrested while trying to buy fireworks and had to get Bob Caudle to bail him out since Hollywood John Tatum went to the circus or something. "Go fluff yourself!" he mumbles.

What are the two's favorite Mickie James moments? (:58) RD remembered her acting with Jennie Jones, her Christmas ornament, and her censored WM feud with Trish Stratus. Blade remembered her first appearance, attending a team battle in 2007 where she noticed his shirt, as well as that same Trish feud.

((( recorded in new audio setup fidelity )))

RD is using the opportunity to test something out, in this case a new audio setup. He lucks into playing the right audio file at least. (:02) Blade was talking to a guy who called it Patron. RD thinks of dessert since he was at an Italian restaurant earlier having some infamous spaghetti of theirs.

Blade is inspired to plug in something to his phone to try things out on the behalf of their 'households' each with 12 listeners in them. Thankfully it works, so he can remain "high-def hungover" in his 'professionalism'. RD: "It sounds exactly the same as the old one." Further sound recording discussion follows. Blade tests the soundbites in response.

Naturally this leads into talking about pop music. (:11)
  • Blade and Don almost saw Tiffany and Debbie Gibson recently as part of an 80s-based concert but didn't want to deal with senior rowdy housewives for the boy bands. RD thinks they would make good potential dates for the single 44 year old. At least he can see the two in some random Sci-Fi monster movie. 
  • RD prefers the later "country girl" Brittney more for her antics than her singing, of which Blade agrees. 
  • They also like Mariah and her own non-country girl diva gimmick. 
  • Blade thought Shoeless Joe Jackson once judged American Idol. 
  • RD has a live remote. 
  • RD still likes Stacey Q who had an appearance in Return of the Living Dead instead of a Wikipedia picture.
  • Blade brings up Goodbye to You by Scandal. RD watches it on Blade's behalf to find Paul Orndorff on guitar and Kerry Von Erich on keyboard standing around in an AWA-pink room. (:30)
 Throughout all this, the two beg for suggestions from the paying audience.

Blade has to go "do something". Let's hope it doesn't involve a trash bag.

284 Pickle-Down Economics: July 24, 2019

All answers point to: YES.
103 minutes

Blade has some unorthodox spelling habits. He also wants to do more than one show a month. RD: "Let me know how that goes."

Blade tries to stake his claim to having the first podcast by wrestling ring veterans. RD disputes this, and his long way round to do things short. Blade is drowsy drunk due to his injured arm from being said wrestling ring veteran.

RD: "You know, when people think: 'who is a veteran of the wrestling scene?' They think the Real Deal RD Reynolds."

RD finds it remarkable the number of people they want to guest invite that they don't follow through on. This included Diamond Dallas Page during their MySpace heyday before his Yoga took off. Drunk Blade: "If you can't self-deprecate yourself what can you do by yourself?" (:16)

One of RD's colleagues at Rupert's Arcade asked him (and by extension myself) what episode of the radio progrem to first listen to. This is a bit of a problem due to how serialized the show is. It may not be traditionally serialized like Game of Thrones or Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul where almost all the episodes constitute the whole of the one series long story, but there is a depth of in-jokes, segments, and characters that may be confusing for an unprepared first timer without any understanding, explanation, or a glossary. And that's just this website. For this reason I would have chosen the closest thing this has to a clip show, even if a long one, to characteristically overview the way things go and what to expect (or not).

Of course, Drunk Blade mishears RD and wants his colleague to listen to other (younger) shows instead. He blames himself for everything before rambling some more. Hey, there's some of that self-deprecation he was just talking about! What a surprise.

RD makes up for missing the Fourth of July by trying out some Red, White & Blue Crunch. He approves. (:21) [How many Cap N Crunch varieties?  Glad you asked.  33. - Erik Majorwitz]

Blade attempts to be "serious". Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes are already available as special editions in July. Drunk Blade alerts RD in to a Long John Silvers July Fishmas campaign while his painkillers trigger, or so he says. He is too out of it to get Sir Alec to appear, so LJS indirectly promotional considerations instead.

Continuing his state, Drunk Blade misplaced his sources and has to direct RD to Facebook on his behalf. (:35) Gorgeous George also has an injured arm, but this is due to falling out of her truck in an attempt to pee. The Co-Fruitcakes then beg for donations. For themselves, not for her. Drunk Blade makes a bad joke. Even worse, it's the wrong bad joke.

Speaking of Obscure Wrestling News, CM Punk will be at Starrcast III in hometown Chicago, perhaps even joining the WC panel. (:42) The two put over AJ Lee spooning with Daniel Bryan.

This summons Mike Check, who knows a thing or two about spooning. (:45) Blade still has a spare bumper sticker of his.

Mike Check: "You know Brad, that's just fascinating. Can you drive people away from their radio any faster than that?"
Drunk Blade: "If people gave out licenses for the ability to drive people away from radio shows, yours would have been revoked ten years ago."
Mike Check: "It would be revoked because I would not be driving people away from their radio, you are correct."

Anyway, Mike was once at WLAF "The Big Chuckle" in Moline, Illinois, and did the morning drive as Ned Nursenky. When Dr. Demento joined him (somehow finding a quick and easy way to commute between California and Illinois), they became Heading Home with Dr. and the Nurse.

He leaves them with Dave Edmunds singing about a high school reunion. This gets them talking about old games for some reason. Blade thinks they could stream some old video game playing.Well, you could do that at Rupert's Arcade, no? With the added benefit of promotional consideration of the place and all that. Definitely a license to print money if ever there was one (more).

Today's Apter Mag Delight, as it is now called (:56) is from Sports Review Wrestling, January 1990 (released October 1989) and is about "The Fattest Wrestlers Of Our Generation". Wow, Bleacher Report style substance-less lists? Who knew they would be ahead of their time by over 15 years?

The Flamingo Kid Questions: What is the one original but defunct theme you want WWE to return? (:67) Blade wants Shane Douglas' Deep Purple theme. RD wants the Midnight Express.

Speaking of themes, RD wants Ken Patera on to ask him about his swinging full nelson. (:70) Eric Bischoff is going to help head Smackdown. RD wants him to host a show back in the Mall of America. He then has to repeat his story of he and his son meeting Ray Park since Blade is...you know.

Speaking of being inebriated in order to watch something, who would the two have wanted to see but didn't at that pretty bad Raw reunion show the other day? (:82) RD wanted the Goobledy Gooker, Ken Patera, and King Haku with crown as illustrated. Blade would want injured Mickie James in a wheelchair, Black Scorpion, and his usual Demolition. Sad News: Blade had to make his own Demolition Smash figure when he was younger. Sadder News: Ted DiBiase's current championship status is confusing. Saddest News: Torrie Wilson still hasn't won anything. Omega News: Steve Austin alluded to doing illegal things with Gerald Brisco while on tour.

"I believe that professional wrestling podcasting is another sad, bizarre chapter in our human history whose last pages even now are being written."
- Ronald Reagan, 40th President of the United States, Wrestlecrap inductee

283 Stickhead: May 29, 2019

86 minutes
You R.D. can "Stick It", brother!

RD believes that there is a Listener in every timezone, all 24 of them. Perhaps there's half of a Listener in each? Blade crawled out of bed in order to record after recovering from sharing a room with RD at Starrcast II in Las Vegas (where he was feeling even worse).

Sad News: RD did not ask Eric Bischoff, James Storm, or Stu Saks about their favorite cereals while there. He did however go to a CVS with Botchamania Maffew and made fun of him for purchasing some "fake milk". (:13) Their WrestleCrap panel, even if sparsely visited, outdrew Booker T's thanks to the help of many guests there. The two then had dinner at Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo. RD once sat at a table (not in Vegas) with Dave Meltzer and Bryan Meltzer who was eating sauce-less ribs. At the StageCoach Casino (in Vegas) Blade drank $3 40 year old Michelob.

Blade: "I'm ashamed of myself."

Speaking of shame, Terri Runnels was arrested in Florida for carrying a concealed loaded handgun. (:28) Blade thinks she has an attractive mugshot, which sounds like something that should be added to any dating site profile for maximum effectiveness. Vince Russo, still blacklisted from Starrcast, has a conspiracy theory that WWE and AEW are secretly in cahoots. RD disagrees. Blade: "I know, right?" (:30)

Tam is still in jail. (:35) Her parole hearing has been postponed for the second time, to August 23rd. She then has six days from that to appear at Starrcast III. Blade: "I miss her doing things."

Bill Apter livens things up by singing with his AptTrolla. (:39) In a supposedly new segment that needs a name, RD will read something from an old Apter Mag (many having been sold at their stand). Today's is from Inside Wrestling, December 1991, Page 30, with an article 'written by' - what a coincidence, Alexandra York. She 'writes' about people needing to join her credit union before they can join her Foundation. Perhaps if she had stayed in it she would have learned from her computer that carrying around a loaded handgun was a bad idea. Blade wonders where all the computers went. RD thinks they went to NORAD. Unsurprisingly, Blade has no idea what NORAD is. Didn't he see WarGames?

William Ridge Casey on Facebook: "Why do wrestlers hate chairs so much?"
Blade: "Because desks are too heavy." (:52)

The Co-Fruitcakes enjoyed Double Or Nothing featuring a (for once) non-Angry Happy Jim. "I don't menstruate," Blade has to clarify for some reason.

On the subject of who they would like to see in AEW, Blade wants Sting, the Black Scorpion, and Demolition (again). RD wants Fred Ottman as "Tug", Hornswoggle, and Mickie James.

Speaking of Hornswoggle, RD got along ridiculously well with Mr. Postl, who visited their stand as an admitted huge fan of WC (and having been in a lot of inducted stuff, including not one but TWO Gooker winners, he should know), strengthened by their shared interest in something called "Muppets dirtsheets". RD promises with great certainty that he will be appearing soon on the radio progrem.

At DON former Dean Ambrose Jon Moxley livened up the whole arena by walking right past RD. (:62) On Chris Jericho's podcast he mentioned how ridiculously senile Vince was during his tenure. Who does he think he is, the President of the United States? (Does that mean he now has to induct himself into his Hall of Fame?) Blade tries out what RD terms "the best voice you've ever done" before he makes an actually sensible good point (yes, I know) that RD and I agree with: all the money in the world, even if it buys you happiness, cannot find for you contentment if the setting does not grant you the space to support it.

RD did not meet Eric in person at the show as he was busy having a good time with others. Blade did however see him at the stand (while RD was away) after being visited by Lizzy Valentine and Mr. Fitness (2). (:77) He actually signed one of his stickheads with some rather...choice words for RD. Later someone visited him at his stand to try to sign another, and Eric actually gave him $10 instead. Clearly that was a bargain at half the price. He did however join them on their shuttle at the end of the day where he called RD, quote: 

"A bowl of douche water!"

Seventeen Syllables right here for us:
The Bischoff stickhead. 
The only thing worse than that?
Bowl of douche water.

"Don't Google it."

$31.50 plus that $19.99 The Price Is Right

Recorded video footage of the attempt to get Eric's signature substituted by $10 is on Patreon, with him laughing about it. Blade wishes he is next insulted by him. (7 minutes)

WCR Video: Every Iron Mark Tyson call on WrestleCrap Radio (so far)!

On Wrestlecrap Radio episode #198, Blade stumbled on an impression of a wrestling "mark" (what is termed on the Internet as someone who thinks wrestling is 100% real) which sounded more like an impression of an impression of, former boxer, Mike Tyson. The character became known as 'Iron "Mark" Tyson', who officially debuted on episode #200, where he called RD and Blade to show that he existed. On episode #201, he called WCR again to ask if Big Show and Mark Henry were okay after the ring collapsed at WWE Vengeance 2011. He then continued to call for 'hot wrestling scoops' on episodes: #202, #204, #205, #208, and #262.

And here they all are for you listening displeasure:

The NEW Mike Check Show: 8 YEARS OF WHACKIN'! (April 2019)

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

This was "The Mike Check Show's" 8th Anniversary special, in April 2019, where Mike Check decided to change his show's format to a Rated G Kids progrem due to the orders of "The President Of The United States", demanding "The MACKER" to become more Politically Correct?

Why? Well, it all started at the end of "Love On the Ropes Month" in Feburary 2019, where Mike played "Danger! High Voltage" by Electric Six and immediately switched it to an "unknown/un-watched" sex tape before his daughter entered the room (The reasoning was that his daughter catching him watching porn was easier to explain than that "Danger! High Voltage" video?). Mike's Daughter immediately switches it off when she remembers that the tape had the same title as a "film" called "1 Night In the Oval Orifice", that starred Peter North as "The President" having relations with...herself?!?! (Editor's note: This sounds just too disgusting, if true?). Anyway, "The President" is unhappy about the tape and orders "The Mike Check Show" to make some "changes" or else it would be cancelled by the end of April.

So what does Mike Check decide to do? He transforms "The Mike Check Show" into "The NEW Mike Check Show", with a "kiddie friendly" format, where Mike and his Daughter attempt to teach children about numbers and words, along with special guests and songs. Will this NEW format work? The answer is obvious:

WCR Video: The Lost Wrestlecrap Radio Interactive Compilation

I (R.V.M Kai) had recently found some old Wrestlecrap Radio related YouTube videos saved on one of my old Backup drives (Created by myself and some of the other 12 listeners). Since many of them have had been "DELETED" from YouTube, probably due to copyright complaints...or Blade's "potty mouth", I decided to endure the task of re-uploading them to, YouTube's French cousin, Dailymotion. Well, after Dailymotion surprisingly DELETED a few of them due to copyright complaints, and also being unable to find the original videos in better quality to re-create the rest, I decided to instead compile and combine the following videos together in 30 second portions. So here's "The Lost Wrestlecrap Radio Interactive Compilation"

Just when you thought that "WCR Videos" was dead, well it's back (...well, periodically anyway) with a video of Blade Braxton showing a "behind the scenes" look at recording (for Wrestlecrap Radio episode #281) of he, HonkyTonk Mailman and Nintendo John, meeting the longest reigning TNA Impact correspondents, Gene and Paul from Kiss, in a Chicago hotel.

(282) Moveset Radio: April 1, 2019

I bet you Dave Meltzer's not talking about Kurt Angle on Wrestling Observer Live.
26 minutes

The Co-Milk Hoses discuss the inevitable upcoming retirement of their idol Kurt Angle, potentially ending their fine radio progrem, Kurt Angle Moveset Radio, in the process.

Kurt promotionally considerations himself in a somewhat old pizza ad. (:04)

Instead of Kurt's TRIP to the Grocery, RD replays his first recorded analysis of his favorite wrestler from 13 years ago, where it all began. (:06)

Obscure Kurt Angle News (:11): Younger brother and progrem guest Eric Angle was arrested for doing something stupid...a month ago. RD believes the older brother can help him back on to the right path (as long as he is sober while doing so).

Today's (Final) Kurt Angle Question of the Week (:14) comes from Casey S who asks about Kurt's ideal match that never happened. RD wishes he had gone to Japan/while in TNA to face Okata to showcase his greatness.

Current Kurt Angle News has RD wishing he beat up Ken Patera. (:18) Neither are happy about him facing Baron Corbin for his retirement match. They disagree with Dave Meltzer not five-starring his battle with Brock Lesnar due to a mistimed move or other.

For this occasion RD does the Weekly Kurt Angle Haiku:
Kurt vs. Corbin.
What a dumb way for it to end.
I'll miss his moveset.

Blade: "Yeah."

  • April Fools Moveset Radio

  • Blade Braxton, Yes Man: Yeah.
  •  (Final) Kurt Angle Question of the Week from: Casey S
    • What match did Kurt never have that you wish that he did? RD: I wish I could have seen Okata vs. Kurt Angle so that people would shut up and realize like you realize, like I realize, that Kurt Angle is the greatest wrestler that ever, ever lived. Blade: Yeah.

Episode 44: Pilots: March 5, 2019

32 minutes

Blade is still with RD at his home following the earlier recording of the standard radio progrem. His Jazz Overnight sounds very sleepy now though. He entertains the people about how he can't remember most of their old episodes, unsurprisingly. However at least he's not drinking right now. Small steps and all.

Since RD has been encouraging listener participation for this show's incarnation, Zap Fabian suggested reviewing an old episode (:04). So RD takes a look at the pilot, all the way back in August 2005. (:07)

  • The audio quality remains in high phone-buzzing over-modulated fidelity.
  • "You know."
  • The progrem was originally started before their appearance on Get In The Ring Radio...which they killed off, sending the original podcasters off the Internet.
  • RD sure talked a lot back then, at least compared to "greenhorn" Blade and in talking about WC. 
  • Someone reviewing it at the time thought of it as a "17 minute voice IM. " (:17)
  • RD links current Sunny to Maude back then. This gives Blade a coughing fit. I hope he doesn't cough straight into RD's microphone. 
    The Once and Future Bea
  • RD forgot who Clumsy Girl was. Don't feel too bad, I forgot too.
  • Neither likes how they sounded then. (:13)
  • RD still doesn't watch much of Raw.  
  • Young RD had a Tivo from 2003. 
  • Blade was partying hard at Young RD's age of 36.
  • Tim Conway and Tom Wopat are still alive...for now.
  • RD wants to ask people about Dorff. (:17)
  • Young RD: "How did we get on Don Knotts?" RD: "That's a question you'll ask a lot, RD."
  • Kerwin White was discussed a lot, for obvious reasons. (:21)
  • So too the Boogeyman.
  • Revenge of the Nerds came out in 1984. 
  • The two are not used to their old voices talking about Gooker nominees in August. (:26)
  • RD was sad he didn't make a Heidenrich Energy quip. "I'm really confused...What is wrong with you, young RD?"
  • RD is surprised Blade did not make a trashbag reference.  (:28)

Blade wants to makeup haiku for the episode, though oddly he doesn't do so here now. RD is surprised people still wanted to listen after, or paid to listen after, either then or now. I believe Vince says the same thing of his own product every day instead of relating to the middle class.

281 Chicks With Chips: March 5, 2019

Oh, Hi Blade.

85 minutes

Blade is once again visiting RD at his home after more than 10 years. He is thankful he can be Jazz Overnight instead of using a "burner" phone. He still has a Big Announcement somewhere. He was in Chicago for Cory Udler's birthday, hence the subsequent visit.

The two plan to record another RD&BS immediately after; in following their desire for user participation they will follow one's request by going over an old show. (:05)

Blade got lost in this very site while recently browsing it. I cannot blame him, this place is VERY extensive. (:09)

Blade went by himself to a ghetto gas station in Philadelphia. (:10) He bought their local Homegirls (Sweeties flavor) potato chips which confuses him for some reason. They turn out as sweet as the packaging. Their brother brand, Chumpies, are also sweet, albeit less so.

RD has a stroopwafel from his Dutch grocery. Blade becomes nostalgic when eating it which fills his head as he doesn't have any words. "It's...different." Then: "it's very good." RD has to explain to him what a stroopwafel is including the Wikipedia mentioned custom of placing one over a cup of coffee to loosen the syrup inside. Unfortunately, he only has Diet Mountain Lightning at the moment, which is not good hot OR cold.

RD has polished his Faxtrolla. (:22) Woman Gorgeous George has pickles which sounds like something Man Gorgeous George would have had (while he was alive of course). The Co-Fruitcakes silent interactive a video on her Facebook page about George Frankenstein's Dill With It Pickles. Blade decides to buy some. RD abstains, as he is not a big pickle man. Ahem.

Blade: "Do you like soap?"

RD is speechless. (:28)

This is supposedly a segue to Hollywood making organic soap to sell on Etsy. Blade is confused by some of the flavors. He still has his Rock talking soap, which has a better shelf life and audience than Francine's fetish used soap.

As mentioned before in exasperation, Tam was arrested. (:34) The difference this time is that there was actually an article on WWE (you know things are bad when they have something!) which Blade reads as he calls himself a "talent-less drunk". That implies he had talent in the first place. Like me RD is (still) speechless that she's still out and about afterwards her SIXTH drunk driving incident (after "video conferencing" with a judge to make things even more absurd.)

Blade recounts how he got a DWI on his 18th birthday (but not for being underage) which put him on the straight and narrow to drink at home nowadays. Good man. It is frightening that he has his head on straighter than (the older) Tam.

Maryse is expecting her second child. (:40)

As mentioned earlier Blade was in Chicago to see Cory for his birthday, and KISS (not for their birthday). (:43) For some reason (drinking at home perhaps?) he randomly did Nintendo John for a change (though Blade with that different than usual audio setup sounded like he had aged into Cranky Kong), alongside his friend's Honky Tonk Mailman (thankyouverymuch) and Gene and Paul, the latter two being visited at a eerily silent "backstage". Apparently Madison Rayne is returning. Blade laughs loudly throughout. Shockingly the HTMM does not provide any stamp news.

Corey Strode (not on Patreon) asks a question about WOW. (:56) RD guesses Blade would prefer Russo WCW. Surprisingly however, he instead prefers 1988 WWF. Santana Garrett of current WOW debuted in a show with Blade - I mean the Midnight Rose. Like him I mix those two up also. Also it's his 10th anniversary. Rose, not Blade. Like me I don't think he's reached 5 years of maturity yet.

Ed Leslie, of all people, is entering the Hall of Fame. (:60) The Fruitcakes wonder who else should be inducted. This is not a repeat from last year when they also did this, which is itself not a repeat from the month before that when they also did this. (:71)

Blade wants the Midnight Express post-roster change, Miss Elizabeth and her granny panties, and Demolition. RD wants Jim Cornette, the British Bulldogs, and the Goobledy Gooker, of course.

Blade never had a problem with Roman Reigns. (:73) Big Dave Bistro has also returned. Sources are having Kofi Kingston against Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania. Blade finally has his own Becky Lynch doll, who RD now considers his favorite female wrestler ever after her master trolling online [What? There's no mention of The Room's Tommy Wiseau wanting to be special guest ring announcer at Wrestlemania 35? You're Tearing Me Apart, R.D.! -RVM Kai].

Seventeen Syllables to say about that:
Becky with a dick.
Russo bomb at Mania:
Penis on a pole.

$31.50 plus that $19.99 The Price Is Right
