Joe vs. the World is back! Joe and Justin do a deep dive into 1997, and this show is packed! Shotgun Saturday Night, the Alamo Dome, Raw goes 2 hours, a new title, ECW invades, and the best match in company history. Also, calling up Paul, wondering if old babysitters still watch the product, grappling with attending TLC, Joe nearly chokes on his cherry Pepsi, Justin flushes a toilet, and so much more. Lost your smile? This show will give you something to listen to while you look for it!

List Em and Learn Episode 9 – The Ring Not Taken

Aug
10

Everyone’s 12th favorite podcast is back! This time, the king of wrestling podcasts, Joe Gagne, returns to the show to list the 10 greatest “What Ifs” in wrestling. For example: what if you listened to this podcast instead of not listening to it? The course of your life would change dramatically! On the show, Matt and Joe think of all of the times where one little change would have altered the wrestling world forever. List spoilers: what if the Young Stallions never broke up? What if Mick Foley’s last name was Jackson instead of Foley? (His name would have been Mick Jackson!) What if John Cena’s finisher was the top rope double axehandle? We go in depth on these topics and more, to help you, the listener, understand just how important our choices and actions are. Never has the name “List ‘Em and Learn” been more apt. It’s an aptly named show, so check it out!!”

Joe Versus the World is BACK!  Justin Shapiro joins Joe to review the third quarter of the WWF in 1996.  Honestly, not a lot happened in-ring, but there are plenty of shenanigans to cover, including a cavalcade of new stars, lawsuits, diminishing buyrates, a little thing called the New World Order, weekly PPV’s,the history of the Boiler Room Brawl, a battle of public transportation, coffee as a plot device, what’s gotten into Kurt Angle’s pizza, an update on our Civil War podcast, and much much more.  We somehow went for 80 minutes!

This time around, Joe would appreciate your support for his Go Fund Me campaign.

Here’s a link to the Go Fund Me to get Joe to Cleveland: http://www.gofundme.com/qgbn9s  Give ‘til it hurts!

At last! The endless 1990’s WWF project returns with part two of our look at 1996. The Curtain Call! Austin 3:16! The Godwinns! Plus Jerry Lawler goes to Hell, figuring out podcast continuity, baseball hats, awful matches, the nadir of WWF tag wrestling, IYIHOP, where the hell will Wrestlemania be in Boston, and an extensive discussion of the time a fan punched Randy Orton in the nuts. Somehow this went 100 minutes. Enjoy!
