What are we celebrating? Well, how about another List entry?! We're forging ahead to #45 this week, and though we're without Blake that doesn't keep Andrew & Erik from speculating on his choice. Is it a French tickler or someone with a pink underpants obsession? And who did Andrew & Erik place at this coveted spot? It's all here, so stop reading this already and get on with the show!



We've also got another Wrestling II Road Report, but we'll just bury that lead right here.

EPISODE #82: JUDY BAGWELL AWARDS: HAMMERLOCKING GOD

We scrounged up some more Judy Bagwell Awards in the attic, and we're itching to give them away!

Friend of the show Jered, from the Agreeing Loudly podcast, gets the distinct honor this week of challenging Andrew for a Judy Bagwell Award. He's the first non-host to bring a case to court—will he succeed? Let's just say he'll need God on his side when he takes on Andrew's choice from Road Wild '98, featuring Jay Leno, Hollywood Hulk Hogan and a hammerlock.



Erik sits in the judge's chair this week, and promises to deliver a fair and impartial ruling...for perhaps the first time! Which side of the law will he come down on, and who will get the award? You'll just have to tune in, won't you then?

2016 WRESTLE-LUTIONS!

Episode 81: 2016 Wrestle-utions


Erik
  1. Quit referring to periods of time as "eras" and small, ineffective changes as "revolutions"
  2. Wrestling fans: be more original with your chants.
  3. Dean Ambrose should spend some time in an actual asylum for character study purposes
  4. Don't hate on heritage and open the vault to NWA, AWA, etc.
  5. Put Jericho, Austin & Jim Ross in a podcast marathon until they're ready to quit.
Andy
  1. WWE should call women what they are: women. Not Divas.
  2. Chris Jericho, New Day & Dolph Ziggler—recognize that you're not funny.
  3. Bram, keep it cool. Try not to get arrested a single time this year.
  4. Abandon the "fun" descriptor on your wrestlers. They're not there to have "fun". They're here to FIGHT!
  5. Old guys are there to put people over. It's time for Taker to lay down for someone younger than Lesnar.
