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.

Brock Lesnar

Rock & Roll Express (Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson)

Sting

Ivan Koloff

Sgt Slaughter

Big Daddy

Jackie Pallo

Brute Bernard& Skull Murphy

Mark Lewin

Mario Milano

And I give my reasons why for each candidate. I also list this year's nominees and why Owen Hart and Curt Hennig should NEVER get into the Hall of Fame.

Finally, we wrap things up with a serious discussion on Global Force Wrestling, Lucha Underground, TNA's TV, WWE RAW and more. Oh yeah....shit gets real, motherfuckers!!
