EPISODE 18: A ONE-EYED MIDGET BLOWING UP A BOAT

The weather's getting nicer, which means it's time to head to the sunny beaches of Biloxi, MS for another episode of Wrestling With Friends!

The Friends enter this episode trying to recover from being pre-empted by the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show last week. It doesn't take long for them to shake the cobwebs and dive right into the past two weeks of wrestling news. They cover off on the return of Evolution, Showtime Eric Young's improbable TNA World Title win and the soap opera that is Extreme Rising, all the while getting reacquainted with the kind of friendship and camaraderie you only get here, on Wrestling With Friends!



What better segment to come back with than the Judy Bagwell Awards, featuring three of the most infamous people/matches/moments in professional wrestling history? Only one can come away with the esteemed Judy Bagwell Award, and since the Friends had so much fun last time with a guest judge, they do it again! Friend to the show, Showtime Eric the Lesser, comes on to make the difficult decision between the WWE profiting from Jerry Lawler's heart attack, Big Bossman hanging from a Cell & the WCW Mini Movie leading up to the 1993 Beach Blast. After much deliberation, the inevitable choice is made—once again leading to dissension between the Friends. Good thing The List is always there to close the wounds as the Friends discuss their #83 picks.

Join Blake, Andy & Erik, just a couple of friends chatting about wrestling. Won't you be our friend?

EPISODE 17: KANE'S HELL PORTAL TO FLORIDA

It's Wrestlemania Fallout on the newest installment of Wrestling With Friends. Fighting through tears at the loss of one of pro wrestling's greats, the Friends try their best to stick it out as they get ready for the Wrestling New Year.

There's some hot topics to chat about coming from the world of wrestling, and the Friends are here to help trudge through it. After memorializing the late, great Ultimate Warrior, the Friends discuss some talking points like Lesnar breaking the Streak, Jeff Jarrett's new company and the always-exciting goings-on in the world of the Independents.



Though the wrestling world is still processing Brock Lesnar being the one to break the Undertaker's vaunted Wrestlemania streak, the Friends are already on top of fantasy booking a bigger stud to handle the job in this week's Alternate Universe segment. Some interesting choices are proposed, while other surprising ones are left off. Did the Friends get it right? While you're still deciding that, be sure to listen to the end as The List keeps winding down, this week landing on #84!

EPISODE 16: BART GUNN, PARKING ASSISTANT

It's been a long, winding Podcast to Wrestlemania...but we're here at last. Yet, though some things change, a few things remain the same—like another quality episode of Wrestling with Friends!

Just days before the Showcase of the Immortals, the Friends open the show with some last-minute news in not just the WWE, but the excitement and energy stemming from promotions like TNA, Ring of Honor and the Indys. CM Punk returning at Wrestlemania? A new Paul Heyman guy? These are just some of the many talking points the Friends have to offer on this blockbuster final episode before Wrestlemania!



Though the options were limitless for the Wild Card this week, the Friends took it a bit easier and stayed more relaxed by dedicating time to the newest Friends Cup predictions. Things were anything but relaxed, however, with the Friends butting heads over who was going to come out an winner or a champion at the "big show" (hint, hint). Who will come out leading in the Race to the Friends Cup? And who will decide next month's Wild Card? You'll have to tune in, and then follow along with Wrestlemania XXX on Sunday! They close out the show, and the Podcast to Wrestlemania, by getting (and staying) hyped with The List and their #85 picks!
