WELCOME to our latest episode, with volume levels adjusted so you can hear the thing properly!

DANN LENNARD and LORD MARK WILLIAMSON kick off another titanic podcast with a letter about our last episode (from Adam G. of Melbourne).

Dubbs tells a jaw-dropping anecdote about Slade Mercer and Sid Parker and wrestler stupidity at WarZone. Oh boys!!!
This expands into general talk about wrestlers trying to get into free into local shows. Plus DON’T EVER ASK Lord Mark Williamson to help you get booked on any Aussie wrestling card.

Next, Dann talks about an article he's written aboutBruiser Brody. Loads of talk about this legendary brawler, including the Lex Luger shoot in a cage (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epmXA8w0Qjo), Brody's lack of professionalism in general, Brody vs Flair in a 60-minute match in St Louis in 1983 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FisTjkyS_w) and more!

Next, we get to the guts of this podcast: Dann's selections for the 2014 Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame. Yes, for the third year running, I've been given the honour of being a judge for the most prestigious wrestling/MMA hall of fame in the world. Here are my selections.

WE'RE in God's own country for our latest podcast (recorded on Sunday, October 12). In this ep, Lord Mark Williamson and Dann Lennard discuss:

* Shazza McKenzie's obsession with gym selfies

* Rumours flying around the scene that Dann has lost his job (short answer: NO, HE HASN'T)

* WarZone 20 on Oct. 4 in Melbourne

* Who is Nathan Gordon and High Impact Wrestling?

* AV's recent "spectacular" show that drew NO paying fans

* The“Yagoona Screw-job" at Sydney's CWA involving those goofballs Dan Damage, Adam Asixx, CRSM and Randall. No-one comes out of this smelling like roses. Especially Mr Damage, who got outwitted by CJ Irwin. CJ Irwin!!!!, AND

* AWE's last show at Concord RSL featuring ex-WWE superstars Shelton Benjamin vs Orlando Jordan in the main event, and a sensational opener featuring Canberra veterans Crofty vs "Lightning" Luke Watts. Oh...and we discuss that godawful hair vs mask match...and we EXCLUSIVELY REVEAL why Tukahe DIDN'T lose his hair after losing!!! Also, we criticise fans who ruin shows by heckling......and yes, that DOES sound a little hypocritical.

After a short break, Dubbs gets serious and talks about the state of NSW wrestling. (HINT: it's not good).

It's 43 minutes of brilliance with absolutely NO discussion about sumo towels.

Overall, another controversial and sensational podcast by two of the most beautiful men in the Australian scene. Seriously, we're GORGEOUS!!!

IN WHICH Dann is joined by his wife Helen on a road trip across Australia to discuss fear: in comics, in life and in movies.

Topics covered include Nailbiter from Image and Sweet Tooth from Vertigo...serial killers in South Australia during the 1970s and 80s, and how they affected our childhood perception of the world...movies such as the original Ring, the original The Vanishing and Joy Ride.

It's 43+ minutes in a noisy car spread over five days. It's epic, it's only tangentially about comics and I think it's my best podcast to date. Enjoy!

IN WHICH I give my pre-show thoughts while driving to the PWA: Thin Red Line event at the somewhat isolated Casula Powerhouse last Saturday night. It's followed by my post-show comments once I'm safely home again. It's interspersed with drops from Edge & Christian and John Cena (back when he was entertaining on the mic), a musical interlude from Rubberbandits (above) and a four-minute "as-it-happens" summary of me getting lost in Liverpool on the way home.
It's 25+ minutes of wrestling stupidity, brought to you by Australia's most loveable pornographer.
