EPISODE 48: BLADE RUNNER ROCK'S WORLD WAR 3

Wrestling With Friends, Original Recipe, is back and just in time for the holiday travels! Though this one is a little PG-13, so maybe wait until the kids are nestled with sugar fairies and all that shit.

First on the agenda is a trip to one of our many Alternate Universe destinations that we still know about—this week being a trip to see when (and how) Sting's entrance into the WWE may have been a bit more impactful or exciting. Or maybe just, you know, whatever. If you're a fan of the Blade Runners, we think you may enjoy this bit!



Hopefully the spiked egg nog will kick in just in time for the Friends to fire off another entry into the List, with their #61 picks. After many worked shoots throughout the episode, will Blake stick to his guns on this one? If you're a fan ov X-Pac's anus, we think you may enjoy this bit!

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

FRIENDS NEWS EPISODE 2: UFCMPUNK & TLC 2014 FRIENDS CUP

Your Friends are back with a little T.L.C. to your ears. And we're not talking about tender, love & care! Because this is an episode FILLED with violence!

Okay, it's not too rough actually. We simply take our normal trip through the wrestling world, talking about the latest hot topics in the WWE leading up to the final big show of the year, some changes going on in TNA & an end-of-the-year assessment on Ring of Honor and Lucha Underground. Then, everything comes to a head during the Friends Cup discussion as the Friends gear up for Wee-L-C...and S. With Andy's commanding lead, do Blake and Erik stand a chance? Listen in for some unorthodox strategies as the Race for the Cup comes to a final and stunning conclusion!



Talking Points: CM Punk in the UFC, Brock Lesnar possibly joining him, Rey Mysterio's lonely life, #FreeRiley, TNA's savior logo, Lucha Underground Gaining Ground, Ring of Honor's Final Battle & Rick Steiner's 2K16 cover.

EPISODE 47: SYLVESTER RITTER'S FRITTERS IN JOHN RITTER'S CAT LITTER, YO

It's Tuesday, so you know what that means! Wait, you don't? Sorry, we're still getting used to this new release schedule too. But basically, it means we're here with the continuation of our Wrestling With Friends Fun Segment Time Go!

And on this, the first in our newly official, bi-weekly release series of rotating segment shows, we're packing quite the open-handed punch. That's right, Judy Bagwell is back up to her old tricks with her awards show as the Friends capture their latest judge, the Bike Man, to find out the worst of the worst. Is it Stone Cold stunning Stacy Kiebler for her refined tastes in beer? Perhaps beer itself is to blame for Hawk's alcoholism woes? Or maybe it's simply rapping about the recently deceased by family friendly John Cena that's enough for the distinction.



After you've tuned in long enough to see feathers fly and the dust settle, be sure to stick around for the List, as the Friends get into their #62 picks. If you thought we'd exit the show without a swerve, then you're in for a surprise when one of the Friends gets to his pick!

FRIENDS NEWS EPISODE 1: BIRTHDAY SHOW—A NEW DAY

It's a New Day! C'mon everybody, clap your hands with us! A New Day! Okay, it's just another day like all others, we know. Punch in, punch out, move on. But at least a new episode of Wrestling With Friends is here to help you waste one hour of your day!

And not just any episode—we are one year old today! But we'll let you spank us more than a few times...because we're about to get naughty with news about Heath Slater and A New Day, as well as Survivor Series fall-out, TNA setting course for a new Destination and the independent wrestling scene offering some enticing alternatives to a Big Show/Big Red "Stairs Match" this month.



Then we get into the meat. The part you all want to sink your teeth into. The podcasts that "broke the internet". That's right, we're talking CM Punk, we're talking Vincent Kennedy McMahon, and we're talking everything in between. We dissect some of the larger talking points, and what some of the allegations could mean for the future of Vince's WWE. We also try to decipher the responses from a promoter who's spent his entire adult life lying and working people over.

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

The New and Improved WRESTLING WITH FRIENDS

Whether it's a podcast or a porn shoot, getting 3 guys together every week is a more difficult task than it seems. And after 44 episodes and nearly a year of this thing, your Friends are feeling a bit road-weary. The doctors are telling us we need to take some time to think about the pace we're on, and whether or not we want our careers to end prematurely. That's why we're changing things up with the format around here.

To allay your fears that you'll be getting LESS friendliness in your ears, however, we're here to break down what this all means. Read below for the new release schedule, or get your lawyer to do it for you. Who cares?!

THE FRIENDS WEEKLY NEWS SHOW

WHO: A combination of Andy, Blake & Erik
WHAT: A weekly podcast highlighting current promotion news & hot topics in the industry
WHEN: Every Friday
WHY: A news-only show allows any combination of the Friends to get together without fearing that the format is being tampered with or that things are out of whack due to an absence. It also allows you, our Friendly listener, to stay up on the news you crave without falling behind due to extensive follow-up segments. We will have more time to discuss the news without rushing ourselves, and to speak on the topics that make the wrestling world go 'round.

THE FRIENDS FUN SEGMENT SHOW

WHO: Andy, Blake & Erik — NO MATTER WHAT!
WHAT: A bi-weekly podcast (every 2 weeks) featuring our fun rotating segments & new List entries
WHEN: Every other Tuesday
WHY: Chopping off the news from the front of the show allows these episodes to be listened to whenever and for always. Talking about the best & worst moments in wrestling history can now live in posterity, and shown to your grandchildren through their ear chip devices. The bi-weekly schedule also allows the 3 Friends to find a suitable time for them all to get together, so that a clusterfuck J-Bags Awards handout or cordial Heenan's Hall ceremony will never leave another Friend out in the cold.

We hope this new format will work for you, our faithful listeners, as it is you that makes this all possible. There will be just as much Friendliness packed in for you each week, but in a more palatable 1 hour installment (because we all know how 3 hours of wrestling works out for everyone...)
