Joe Versus The World #64: Justin Shapiro [1990 WWF]


Not a hoax, not a dream! Joe vs. the World returns for a special reunion show, because you demanded it! Joe and Justin Shapiro reform to break down the year 1990 in the WWF. We cover it all, from what was different about the business back then (a lot), what a better (a lot), plus what to do when Challenge and Superstars air at the same time, WWF’s staunch anti-bullying policy in 1990, Bad News Brown as the Rat King, Blow Away diets, Noogies as finishers, and a lengthy and informed discussion of pooping on snakes. 90 minutes of fun for 1990!

What’s the catch? Nothing, really. The show is free and you’re free to download and listen for holiday travel or trampling on other shoppers on Black Friday. But I will ask for a favor.

The March of Dimes is a charity near and dear to my heart, as my own son was born very early (and is doing great today). So, if you’re able and can make any kind of contribution to them through the attached link, I would appreciate it.

This isn’t a Fritz Von Erich type of deal; I won’t say we’ll do another show if we raise X amount of dollars. I know times are tight, especially around the holidays, so if you can’t contribute, no worries. I had a ton of fun doing this show, and if we can raise some money for a good cause, all the better. Enjoy!

Dr. Keith presents Alan4L: “We’re Not The Mounties!!!”


Free show! I even added to the RSS feed to confuse people! (Observed: doing RSS by hand was really a lot of work back in the day. Don’t do that.)

DR. KEITH PRESENTS: We’re Not The Mounties!!! The DKP Tag Team Roundtable is back, Justin Shapiro and Joe Gagne are back, and it’s all in aid of one of the most under-appreciated tag teams of ALL times – Jacques & Pierre, THE QUEBECERS!!! In what may be the best DKP yet, the lads discuss great Quebecer moments such as their tag title win over the Steiners, being a part of the Foreign Fanatics, the killing of jobbers and more. But don’t think we forgot about the other things they got up to, as The Fabulous Rougeaus, The Mountie, Jean Pierre Lafitte and PCO were all touched on. And then in a special treat we present HELMY’S CORNER~! where the board’s own Quebecer tells us all about what Jacques & Pierre meant in their homeland! All FREE right here at!!! CHECK IT!!!
