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 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:

*SIGH*! WHAT A MARK!

Not Quite The FAXTROLLA

You may have noticed some extra news in the WWCR "Related Tweets" Twitter feed at the left hand side of WrestlecrapRadio.com...probably not?...but it's there...>>>


*UPDATE* 07/22/2019

BREAKING NEWS: The Trolla Corporation and wrestlecrapradio.com have jointly bought 'The Wrestling Bystander', and from this moment forward, will be going under the name "Not Quite The FAXTROLLA". It will be now using a factory refurbished FAXTROLLA for their wrestling scoops. We are also still waiting for HTMM to deliver a new ink cartridge, so we'll have to make do with deciphering NEWS from distorted news-sheets...But it will still do it's best to present "the same facts" as WBS intended.



. . . . .



Anyway, this here website has partnered with a brand new dirtsheet "Wrestling News Force" on Twitter that's full of journalistic integrity, unlike The Observer, The Torch, etc. They are known as The Wrestling By-Stander And just like Blade Braxton's Haiku's, they'll condense all the weeks wrestling news, from scoops from their expert stooges insiders, into 17 syllables...well, actually; 280 characters. It's "REAL" wrestling news, it's NOT "Obscure", and it's presented in the proper "the Smart Mark on social media's" point of view: "Unbiased", "Objective" and "Rational".


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:
