EPISODE 42: MR WRESTLING II'S EMERGENCY MASK

Trick or Treat, Mother-Cornetters! You didn't think we'd let our first Halloween pass us by without getting a little festive, did you? Put on your best Man Mountain Rock costume and get ready to party down!

This week's news is full of all kinds of a-happenings! From the fallout of Hell in a Cell to the futures of some returning stars, with a little TNA TV updates and Ring of Honor toy news sprinkled in, this episode contains all kinds of treats with only 1 trick--getting you to love us!



It wouldn't be a Halloween Judy Bagwell Award ceremony without our scary friend, Creep Creepersin, getting involved to judge once again! He's got a lot of spooky picks to choose from, but only one can be awarded from Papa Shango's curse, Ultimate Warrior in the mirror and the legacy of the Boogeyman (and not the Jimmy Valiant kind). And with a return to the List and our #66 picks, we keep the party in the mad science of wrestling's laboratory going all night long, baby!

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

EPISODE 41: CHOOSE YOUR AMERICAN MALE

C'mon, c'mon, come and get it! Another episode of Wrestling with Friends, that is! That's right, you're lookin' at the real deal now, because it's all about the power on this jam-packed edition of theme song goodness!

Before the Friends get "Wild", they do their duty to bring you up to speed on the latest happenings around the wrestling world—from Rusev's soldier attack to Jeff Jarrett's backdoor dealings with Ring of Honor. The news is a bit limited this week, but that's because the Friends have decided to book-end this episode with the latest Friends Cup; so be sure to stick around to the end of the show!



In between, of course, is a lengthy (joint) Wild Card discussion of favorite wrestling theme songs! The Friends kicked things off a few months ago with the start of their Top 30 list, and now they're reaching No. 25-21 with increased admiration and fervor. That's right: FERVOR! So sit back, reminisce and start building your own iPod playlist of some real-life jock jams!

EPISODE 40: STROKING MY BOOTY MAN CUTOUT

We're riding strong through October into a new Era for Wrestling with Friends! And trust is, this one *isn't* PG! We don't really know what it's called, or if there even is a new era, but just trust us and listen to this newest episode anyway!

The Friends come hard with the news this week, featuring the latest on Justin Roberts' conspiracy-laden departure, whether or not TNA Bound for Glory actually happened and a big month of events for Ring of Honor and their latest star, ACH. Will he be the indy scene's next golden boy? Will Blake's birthday party be a success? The only way to know is to tune in!



All right, let's calm down a bit. After all, we are entering Heenan's Hall once more this month to dedicate a new person/animal/mineral to saintly status. Once again, the Friends don't tread lightly as they nominate The Flock, Y2J's WWF debut and Paul Heyman for induction. Will chicken kiev butter be spilled, or will they come to an agreeable decision? We all better hope so, if we want to see them get to their #67 picks from the List!

EPISODE 39: BRET HART'S JOGGING TAQUITO

Welcome to the latest Season Premiere of Wrestling With Friends!

We're hitting the reboot button on the latest episode of Wrestling With Friends, as Blake, Andy & Erik return with some of the most blockbuster and groundbreaking news in wrestling today, from the WWE and its plans for the Wyatt Family, TNA's current status as a company and nobody knowing about its biggest PPV of the year, and winds of change hitting Ring of Honor with the loss of their most recent champion. And that's only in the first segment!



The Friends get started on erasing all the bad memories of past episodes by starting small in an Alternate Universe where they get to play Commissioner and reverse a few classic wrestling finishes. From the classic, to the obscure, to the downright puzzling, each Friend chooses 3 matches due for a new finish. The imaginative discussion doesn't end there, as there's still a List to get to and their respective #68 picks!

EPISODE 38: THE THING IN ROLLINS' BRIEFCASE

Welcome to the Season Premiere of Wrestling With Friends!

Well, sort of. We're just happy to be back, and ready for the fall with all of our interruptions out of the way so that we can ask the really tough questions. Like, what is in Seth Rollins' briefcase? And, is TNA still in business? Or, is Michael Elgin still trapped in Canada? You'll have to tune in to get the answers!



Business picks up on our fall premiere as we round back to the Judy Bagwell Awards, with trusty guest judge Creep Creepersin back in tow. Will he make it a successful second judging? He's got some tough choices between Sheamus' flawed 'Be a Star' campaign, Eric Bischoff's Hot Lesbian Action and the aptly themed 'Chamber of Horrors' match during WCW Halloween Havoc '91. You'd think the Friends would have run out of crappy wrestling segments by now, but they're just getting started! As usual, they depend on the List and their #69 picks to class up the show as they cap off this exciting Season Premiere!
