What Would Chris Benoit Do, ep. 11: "Dad, you're only making it worse"
IN WHICH your host DANN LENNARD ("The most hated man in Melbourne wrestling") is joined by his regular special guest MARK "The most dangerous man in Australia" WILLIAMSON to analyse the current feud between Dann Lennard and the Facebook wall of The Gorilla Position.
Yes, folk, it's the most insular, incestuous wrestling feud EVER and we're here to analyse it in great detail. And by "great detail", we mean we insult the fuck out of a bunch of backyard scrubs pretending to be wrestlers. Men like Daniel "I work in Game Traders" Glover, Heath "Death Turd" Fury and Morphine (which is what you feel like overdosing on after watching one of his matches). Dubbs shares some classic yarns about the stupidity of Mr Fury and another backyard shithead called 69er.
And then I go OFF.
If Morphine wanted to kill me before...if Daniel "I'm an obese asthmatic and I need a puffer to get through a match...and that's a SHOOT!" Glover wanted me to buy my own plane ticket to fly down to Melbourne so he could beat me up...well, I just upped the stakes, baby! :D
After some seriously demented ranting, we return to normalcy and wrap up the podcast with a literate discussion on Vince McMahon's decision to rebrand World Wrestling Entertainment to WWE. We also do a very late recap of WMXXVII.
It's 67 minutes of potentially libellous podcasting by the two funniest men in Aussie wrestling.
Join us and be touched by the power of, Chris.

What Would Chris Benoit Do?, episode 10: Needs More Bailey

IN WHICH I briefly discuss last night's PWA Australia card held in Liverpool, Sydney.

It was a good show, but not one of their best, to be honest.

Also, I rail against the underutilisation of Matt Bailey. And also rant again about how Bombshell Bo should become the new Bull Nakano.

Also, it was nice to catch up with so many great people last night including Ed Lock, Fozzy Young, Will Phoenix, Jag, Jorge Del Hommos, Lightning Luke Watts, Jak Arkham and more. :D
