Episode 400: I’ve Been Here for Seven Years

Celebrating two milestones in one episode is hard work, but if anyone can handle it, it’s your boys the Shining Wizards. And the guys brought out the heavy guns for this one, as SiriusXM Busted Open’s Dave LaGreca joins them to do some wrestling talk. There’s plenty of walks down memory lane, from first wrestling shows to magazine and figure collecting, to the old arenas and spot shows. The guys…

Episode 398: Thumbquacks

The boys have a few big shows (wellllllll) coming up in the next few weeks, but before we get there, it’s one more stop on the wrestling road. First there’s plenty of buildup to Survivor Series, and there’s general disappointment over the “brand supremacy” battles. It didn’t help that Becky Lynch is injured and off the show. Plus, no one really cares about Shane McMahon, although Tony thinks Stephanie is…

Episode 397: The Most Marketable Shakeweight

Sizzling Stan Stylez joins Matt and Kevin in Studio B to talk about Stan Stylez Intergender Bonanza 2. Its a lot of fun, a lot of shaking of the shake weight, even some whipped cream. Plus we talk about putting together the show, and dream matches. We also get to talk to “The Most Marketable Man” Richard Holliday about Wrestling Has A Tomorrow and training under the Paul Roma tree…

Episode 396: Halloween 2018

With an early start time, the guys are joined by superfan Manny Kratzo from Austria to open the show.

Then, there’s a whirlwind of wrestling coverage, including Evolution, Raw, the upcoming Crown Jewel, Impact, 205 Live, NXT, and so much more. Finally, the…

Episode 394: Killer Elite Squadcast

Concerns over WWE traveling to Saudi Arabia continue to dominate the news. Despite this, WWE continues to move forward building to both Evolution and Crown Jewel. Impact impresses with Bound for Glory this past weekend, although the ending of the show left a lot of questions to be answered. Lance Hoyt, star of New Japan and KES member, tells stories of his relationship with Curt Hawkins, his social life in…

Episode 378: Kevin Gill and Matt Macintosh, Two Bad OGs

The Two Man Group is back in Studio A! Despite not watching NJPW at the Cow Palace (or a lot of it, anyway) the guys welcome friend of the show Kevin Gill to give us the 411 on all the happenings of the show. KG offers plenty of behind-the-scenes insight as well as his perspective on the show and some of the standout talent. Later in the show, the “Bad…

Episode 376: Pie Face

It’s a Studio A party! Tony doesn’t understand the ESPN body worshipping issue, or the Spartan athletes, but Kevin and Matt do their best to explain why Charlotte Flair was involved, and naked. So the conversation moves from Charlotte to Paige, where apparently someone mistook a pie face for a literal pie in the face. Did the man they call Vader deserve more than a graphic on Raw? The guys…

Episode 375: Downside Guarantee

Matt and Kevin are working Summer Hours and give you a Monday Show. They discuss the fallout from Kevin’s Birthday Extravaganza. Talk turns to Money in the Bank and NXT Takeover Chicago. Ring of Honor is on the TV, while we wait for RAW to start. We cover some Impact Wrestling, Lucha Underground and NJPW. We talk about action figures, the G1, WWE Hidden Gems and more. Then they argue…

Episode 371: Fat Nuts

We analyze possibilities for the future, all while watching WWE stock skyrocket! We check in on Matt Cappotelli and Tom Magee. Tony watches Lou Thesz vs Ray Gunkel from the Sportatorium in 1951, where…

Episode 370: Daisy Chain

It’s another action-packed episode of the Shining Wizards! The boys talk about All In and which talent brought the fans to the yard, a true sellout in about a half an hour. The Roman Reigns experiment has failed and is over, at least according to Tony. Kevin and Matt believe he’s in a better place moving down to a feud with Jinder. Ronda Rousey doesn’t earn a title shot against…

Episode 369: Chico Santana, World Champion

Tony welcomes Rant EM Radio Hall of Fame Dave “Mega” Powers back to the show. The guys find out you can be arrested in Saudi Arabia for besmirching professional wrestling. Tony brings up the passing of friend of the show Big Bully Busick. There’s plenty of discussion on the direction of Roman Reigns, and some discussion of Backlash and the current WWE in general. Tony researches Indian and Native American…

Epsiode 368: Tito Santana, Making Towns

The boys are back in Studio A and they’re wreaking havoc and turning wrestling talk upside-down! Once again, Matt professes his love for Nia Jax and Tony says otherwise. Of course, conversation turns to Paige (lol) before the conversation moves to the Greatest Royal Rumble! Where does Titus O’Neil’s slide rank in the history of botches? What else happened to make the show botcheriffic? Kevin felt the need to revisit…
