Joe Versus The World – 35: Rob Naylor & Matt Foy

Dec
28

Rob Naylor & Matt Foy join us to recap Ring of Honor’s 12/23 show in Manhattan. Both were they live, and we run down all the results, including Homicide’s title win, a great tag match, Larry Sweeney, and the big party. Plus we have thoughts on ROH in 2006, including our thoughts for best match and show of the year. Plus, ECW in a mosque, Rob cops to seeing CZW in a bar, and I don’t say a whole heck of a lot. We fly high for over an hour of power!

Tanvir’s Almost End Of The Year Review

Nov
26

It’s almost 2007. I am now 25.5 years old and god damn, I feel old and almost dying. A bad back, an aching sense of godliness and a desire to sing that Kajagoogoo song has led me to the end of the year wondering, “damn, what the fuck happened?” Instead of waiting for the Time Magazine version of what went down this year, I plan on covering ALL of the major moments of the year. Why, you ask? Because I feel like it. Also, I like fulfilled my tainted ego by writing things for the internet denizens. Wrote a YEAR IN REVIEW a few years ago that, like, four of you read. I intend on having maybe two of you read this in full by making this as unreadable as possible. Do you think I can do it?

I surely hope so.
