EPISODE 30: THE SCHIAVONATION OF DOMINATION

We're splitting wigs again this week, with another painful episode of Wrestling With Friends! But don't worry, it's a good pain. And after our wild, uncut week, we rein things in for this special 30th episode.

The Friends kick things off by discussing a gimmick-themed question from their fun, new Facebook Group! After that, they discuss their prediction performance from WWE Beetleborgs and the aftermath of that event, while also touching gently upon TNA as to not upset it surprising turn towards entertainment. Ring of Honor is also covered, along with a short recap from a local indy show Andy & Erik attended!



Now shut up! It's time to get serious, iron our tuxedos (except for Blake, since he burnt a hole in his last time), and enter Heenan's Hall for yet another respectful, classy ceremony. There's only one spot, but there are three worthy candidates in the Barbershop Window incident, the Nexus Invasion and Tony Schiavone's on-air boner (not that kind of boner, you weirdo) turning the tides of the Monday Night Wars. And if you thought we were going to miss the List this week, you've got another thing coming, pal! The Friends return to form in this 30th of episodes with their #75 picks as well.

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

EPISODE 29: THE MARC MERO CONUNDRUM

It's an uncooked, uncut and uncensored episode of Wrestling With Friends this week. With no time to edit, you get this pure, unadulterated episode full of Blake's meanderings, Andy's stalling and Erik's dramatic pauses.

The news covered off on this week includes CM Punk's official retirement, Ric Flair's odd behavior, TNA not sucking and Ring of Honor and other independent promotions heating up the summer with All-Star cards. Plus, we run a bit longer in the first segment in order to give you our Friends Cup predictions for Battlestar Galactica this Sunday! Or, something close to that.



The Friends have never had a problem determining who their "third man" is (obviously, it's Erik), but in this week's uber-long edition of the Alternate Universe, they set off to determine who Mr. Hall and Mr. Nash chose to lead them in their alternate New World Orders. You'll never guess who Blake picks! (Seriously, we're still trying to figure it out ourselves...) Unfortunately, the rocket ship ran out of fuel on the way back, so once again there is no List this week.

EPISODE 28: COUNTING GOBBLEDYS BEFORE THEY HATCH

We're in the heat of the Summer, and things are heating up on Wrestling With Friends. There's lots to talk about this week, so let's stop fooling around damn it!

Things kick off with all the wonderful news, rumors and results from WWE and the Money in the Bank PPV where the Friends finally get to the Friends Cup results. Maybe it's the additional sunshine Andy's been getting, but he has some positive news regarding TNA, while Erik also chimes in as always with ROH and Independent wrestling updates.



It's been far too long, but finally someone, or something, is getting a Judy Bagwell Award yet again. Friend to the show and fellow co-host with Erik on the Giallo Ciao! Ciao! podcast, Creep Creepersin, is here to make the judgment amongst the Rock and Billy Gunn's Kiss My Ass match at Summerslam 1999, Tim White's multiple failed suicide attempts and the Gobbledy Gooker's debut. With a return like this, the Friends go big! And they go even bigger when they get to the Top 100 List and their #76 picks.
