291 Love in the Time of Corona: March 27, 2020

This ring is empty, just like after listening to this show feels.
101 minutes

The latest development for Big Black Room WrestleMania: AJ Styles will face the Undertaker in a "Boneyard Match". Blade makes an actual joke. For once. I know.

Blade is back (quarantined?) in Don's Petting Zoo Basement with his pet parrot "Bitey". He is the only one laughing at Blade's jokes/laughter/Big Announcement. RD thinks Bitey would make the perfect next TNA correspondent. I'm expecting he will have a character page eventually irregardless of this. (He already has a label now anyway.)

RD now has an Etsy shop. At the moment he is specializing in creating high quality old school game coasters.

RD admits that we of this very site are more awesome than them. (:16)

News depending on how you look at it: Tam is out of prison and expressing a desire to "paint". No word on whether she also is on Etsy. (:19) Blade reminds RD on the many Tam "presents" he had subjected him to for Christmas. Then he threatens to talk about her weekly. Then he coughs outside of the microphone. Then he randomly says: "I'm allergic to the world." Then he Joker laughs.

Shelly Martinez is not doing nude work on her OnlyFans page. (:25) Blade has to explain to the more prudish RD what OnlyFans is. Wasn't Tam there also? She will be on Snapchat if she wasn't already there before her "hiatus". Bitey pterodactyl screeches on hearing this. Blade has seen her recent photos and thinks she looks better. Spending time in jail will do that to someone.

Blade had a Wrestling Vixens account before he or his library had a computer (he used his friend's computer to use it).

Jillian "Mole" Hall is a mother for the second time. (:32) Blade: "[Shawn Michaels] never had any problems conceiving, but..." He keeps thinking it's still cold outside. He also fantasizes about naming his alternate dimension children after Crayola colors and/or cheese. (Crayola colors named after cheese?)

Sad News: Blade once again is missing out on meeting Mickie James (and Tom Wopat) in Columbus (Indiana) due to the current pandemic cancelling everything. (:38) He expresses his sadness by more coughing.

RD announces that he will pay for Blade's next flight to see Mickie James within the next 12 months if she's within close distance of either of them. Blade still wants to ask her about her favorite breakfast cereal. (:44)

For a change, Listener James Campbell was Questioned in the Kult of Kayfabe Facebook group about wrestling podcasts. He chose...wisely. (:46) Blade wonders how their two radio progrems compare to one another. Then he Joker laughs again alongside Bitey.

RD took another visit to the F4W Board for another Question there. (A subscription is still required for access.) (:49) Blade wants to call these occurrences Board Games. This week/month from January: who is the best member of Demolition? "Dude Life" liked Axe due to his creepiness as a middle-aged factory laborer sex pervert.

WrestleCrap will be 20 years old this April, so the Co-Fruitcakes go over some of their favorite moments (again). (:54)

  • RD was supposed to be a caller-in on a radio show with an elderly receptionist identifying him as "Russell Crap" (I am sure he mentioned this once.). 
  • Blade had an early email conversation with the Warrior on his personalized workout program using the nom de guerre of RustleCrup. 
  • RD remembered the many people he has met over the years. 
  • Blade remembered their feud with Damien Demento including singing and their missed attempt to have Shelly Martinez on the show because she "overslept". 
  • RD is most happy to have met Blade through his Black Scorpion Revenge. Blade was assisted by his Ex and Don to make it as an excuse to expand his VHS tape library, and as a result starting his IMDB profile. Discussion of the expensive good old days follows. 
  • Blade is most happy that he has Katie Vick's outfit to literally fuck around in.

The two wonder how much it will cost to bring Tam onto their show. (:83) According to her Facebook page she was happy for two (2) hours on the 23rd before getting angry again for some reason.

Big Black Room WrestleMania over two days with gimmicks matches is the worst way to go about it, instead of delaying it in order to make it better (you know, like everyone else is doing). (:87) Blade argues they can't delay it without impacting their TV shows; they might as well get things over with now and start anew. RD shows how incorrect Blade is by forgetting who Brock Lesnar is to fight against (Drew McIntyre).

The two agree that WWE should take a hiatus/offseason anyway, as they should normally do even without a pandemic (you know, like everyone else is doing). Blade attempts to be "light" and spills water all over himself.

RD on WrestleCrap on Patreon: "Enjoy some bad wrestling from when some of it was actually good."

Empty WrestleMania.

Rowdy Roddy Piper's Corona Virus Tips

By R.V.M Kai

With all the rules and strict guidelines that the world has had to follow due to the recent outbreak of the Corona Virus (aka Covid-19) pandemic, it started making me think about Rowdy Roddy Piper's Halloween Tips (for some reason?), which were basically Hot Rod's rules for kids to follow to stay safe when 'Trick or Treating' from back in the 1980's (the video clip is above). It prompted me to Tweet RD Reynolds and Blade Braxton of Wrestlecrap Radio, since they were always big fans of Roddy's Halloween Tips, about wishing that Piper was alive today, during a difficult time like this, just so we could have gotten his version of "Corona Virus Prevention Tips". Seeing that we at wrestlecrapradio.com do not have a SeanceTrolla (I think Mike Check's daughter may have it and bought it for a bargain at a yard sale?), I thought I'd try to come up with what I think Roddy Piper's Covid-19 Tips may sound like:

"I wanna tell ya people somethin', because preventing the spread of Corona Virus means something to me. People dying, there's bunches of them. There's a couple of rules you follow when it comes to Covid-19. And these are the rules and ya gonna follow them because Hot Rod said so:

#1 First of all, when you go out there, ya gonna wear a mask and wash your hands, because and there's IDIOTS not covering their mouths when they cough, and those Idiots are gonna cough all over the place! Some of them don't care, so you gotta take care of yourself!

#2 Now ya ain't gonna go and knock on people's doors who have Corona Virus, or you'll get sick. And you ain't gonna go inside nobody's house when they offer you their hand for you to shake! Ya gonna stay on the doorstep, and ya gonna stand three feet away and ya gonna say "PLEASE AND THANK YA"!

#3 Now when ya order ya food from a restaurant, whatcha gonna do is ya gonna TAKE YA FOOD, BACK HOME to your family, before you eat it!

#4 Then whatcha gonna do is ya gonna have lots of fun in self-isolation, so by October, ya'll be able to have a Happy Halloween and Trick Or Treat."

See you all next week everybody, so long!

R.I.P Roddy Piper (1954 – 2015)
