EPISODE 70: HEENAN'S HALL: BISCHOFF, BRET AND BAWL BABIES

Hear that creaking sound? No, it's not us releasing a much-belated episode. We're cracking open the halls of the Sioux Falls Bingo Emporium for yet another edition of Heenan's Hall!



With Mr. Wrestling II in tow (giving us his one-of-a-kind Road Reports along the way), your Friends shed their grizzled appearances and put on some Axe body spray as they glad-hand their way through another cordial affair of inducting the next great wrestling persona/angle/bear. Who deserves our mighty recognition? Is it Eric Bischoff and his ubiquitous influence, Bret Hart's stunning first appearance in WCW or Macho Man and Elizabeth finally reuniting once more in the Halls of Heenan?

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

EPISODE 69: THE LIST MEGA RETROSPECTIVE SPECIAL (W/ #50)

This is what it's all about, ladies. It's why we started this whole thing to begin with. And now our List has hit the almighty and sacred halfway point.

Join the Friends as they traverse nearly 2 years of talking about their personal favorite wrestlers—and then proceed to blow everything out of the water by shuffling wrestlers around, adding new ones or dropping existing ones altogether. Nobody's safe. Nothing is off-limits. Tune in to hear some of the more mind-boggling List shake-ups after 50 picks have been shared. The ceremonies don't stop there; they never do. The Friends continue to march on into that dark void called the future by starting their next half with the #50 choices.



Due to some technical difficulties, the sound quality took a dive almost as bad as Mabel doing a high-risk maneuver. We hope you bear with us, as this episode was truly a treat to record and to share with all of you!

EPISODE 68: LOOKING GOOD IN SUITS: AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE 4 HORSEMEN

We're riding into your ears this week on some noble steed, ready to ring in the podcast apocalypse!

Actually, we're more or less just presenting another episode—returning once more to an Alternate Universe where we take a look at some Modern Day 4 Horsemen, inspired by a recent Ric Flair interview.



We're also presenting a FIRST: After multiple episodes filled with controversy, this is the first one we felt the need to add in a disclaimer. We like riding on the edge of a lightning bolt, don't get us wrong! But even some things we need to make right.
