ThROH the Years Episode 3: Night of Appreciation

Apr
23

Nearly 15 years to the day later, ThROH the Years covers Ring of Honor’s Night of Appreciation Event. Trevor and Matt cover a show that features a whole host of debuts, from Donnie B. on commentary to AJ Styles, to a debut of a long-running tag team rivalry. Also Donnie B., the announcer, makes his debut. Frank Tallent returns, Spanky’s pants and match fall apart, Eddie Guerrero gives an emotional farewell, and Donnie B. debuts on commentary. Did I mention that there’s this commentary guy named Donnie B.? Check it out!

ThROH the Years Episode 1 – The Era of Honor Begins

Mar
26

Introducing a brand new podcast called ThROH the Years. Hobbes and Matt will chronologically review the Ring of Honor events from the beginning of the promotion. In this, the first episode, we review “The Era of Honor Begins” from February 23, 2002. The event (as well as the podcasts) features some highs and lows, from one of the most offensive opening segments in wrestling history, to one of the best first main events in wrestling history, this show is memorable. Your hosts go into the background of the company, and talk about the progressive and regressive aspects of the company at the time. It’s a fascinating look at how far ROH (and wrestling in general) have come since 2002, and it also features a completely unnecessary jab at Joe Gagne, so check it out!

To listen to this show, right click to download. For the moment, the show will be available on the Listen and Learn feed.  We’ll give it’s own podcast feed later on.

List ‘Em and Learn Episode 16 – Who Will Survive? No, seriously, please tell me who will survive because I’m extremely scared!

Nov
16

In the post-apocalyptic rubble of November 2016, List Em and Learn stumbles out from a heap of toxic waste. Thanks to Joe Gagne for reviving this ailing and depressed show, and its equally depressed host. And if anything can cheer up Matt and America, it’s WWE’s most exciting and popular gimmick match: the Survivor Series elimination match! Matt and Joe run down the top 10 Survivor Series elimination matches. How can they pick? They’re all so good! Seriously though, some of them are actually good. Really! And the show is also good, thanks to the always cheerful Joe pulling Matt through his blues with the help of some wrestling matches that feature a variety of bone-rattling slams and pinning combinations!
