Joe is joined by Justin Shapiro & Matt Feuerstein for part 4 of the epic History of WrestleMania series. The lads cover Manias 29-32, with topics including the end of Rock/Cena, being at Mania live, the series finale of Daniel Bryan, that Undertaker guy losing, the trouble with Roman Reigns, Shane McMahon: badass, more trouble with Roman Reigns, and so much more. We all kind of lose our minds during the 32 recap. 2 hours of majestic Mania talk!

Joe Versus The World – 46: Justin Shapiro & Matt Foy [WrestleMania, XI-XXIII]

Mar
22

Justin Shapiro & Matt Foy return for part II of our Wrestlemania retrospective. We cover the highs and lows of XI-XXII, along with some thoughts on XXIII, plus shampoo, all I needed to know about race relations I learned from Triple H, the Wrestlemania legacy of Paul London, jerks in the crowd with dumbfounded expressions, barbarians with water bottles, Khali: color commentator, Matt gets, uh, excited after WM XX, I lean on the fast forward during the Iron Man match, and Justin gets peal harbored by Gorilla Monsoon. Bigger, badder, and better at a whopping 90 minutes!

Mar
17

Justin Shapiro and Matt Foy return for part 1 in a special 2 part Wrestlemania Retrospective. We have recaps and remembrances of Wrestlemanias I-X, plus thoughts on all the great (and less-than-great) matches and angles. All this plus a lesson in Roman numerals, Robert Conrad, a rant about Wrestlemania III attendance, what Dave Meltzer thought of these shows, what sucked more: IV vs. IX, Dockers, blindfolds, wrestler death tolls, plus special music and the unveiling of the GORILLA MONSOON DROP BOARD. Double wide and double deep at 80 minutes of awesome!
