02.13.12 – Cool Your Heels
What ever happened to the classic bad guy? You know, the kind who honestly didn’t want the crowd in his corner? This week on Bowling Shoe Handsome, the ever-changing role of the pro wrestling villain is examined. Wrestlers discussed include legends like Ric Flair and Ted DiBiase, along with Edge, Dolph Ziggler, Randy Orton, and others. Then, Chris Jericho of 2012 faces Chris Jericho of 2002 in a fantasy “heel-off.” Finally, we’ve got Grammys talk and why Storage Wars star, Dave “Yuuuup” Hester, would be a great asset to the world of pro wrestling.

Join hosts Kevin and Young John for a very “divisive” edition of the web’s only Punk Rock ‘n Wrestling podcast. This week’s topic is wrestlers who have figuratively split audiences in two. First, hear the guys talk about Hulk Hogan’s place as both the top heel AND top babyface in TNA – and why this could be helpful to the Impact product. Then, the discussion turns again to internet darling, Daniel Bryan. Find out why a seemingly innocuous line uttered by Michael Cole might signal a brighter future for the former “American Dragon.” A can’t-miss feud with John Cena might not be so far off!
Musically speaking, you’ll dig into tracks from Go to the Police, the long out-of-print (and only) recording from U.K. power pop act, The Toys. PLUS: music from Mat Minutiae’s Mike Bessler and BSH’s own Kevin McElvaney. Yes, you read that right!

12/12/11 – Private Jokes Are Rude
Kevin and Young John return to TBH with a revamped version of their acclaimed podcast. This week’s topic is “inside jokes.” The guys talk about what place, if any, inside jokes have within the sphere of professional wrestling.

Plus, music from Ascetic Parade, Hold Tight, and Throttle Jockey. Click below to consume the excellence!
• 3 matches will be spotlighted every Sunday morning based on their nostalgic qualities, their in-ring performances, their campiness, and their performers’ contributions to today’s wrestling world.
• Not EVERY match will be a squash, but it’s always nice to see the fan favorite totally dominate.
• Main event of Squash Match Sunday will normally have a title on the line, and will ALWAYS be a quality wrestling match.
…Let’s get to the action!
EARLY BIRD SPECIAL
Our Early Bird Special is serving a heaping helping of Sunday Night Heat action, where WWF Tag Team Champ Kane (who apparently wore a mask early on in his career???) takes on the Big Boss Man.
MID CARD HANGOVER
TNA gets….EXTREEEEMEEEE! Now usually those two words don’t go together (TNA and extreme), but this match between Raven and Sandman did get quite “ultra-violent” in this Clockwork Orange House of Fun Match. The only way to defeat your opponent is to throw them through two tables from the top of “Raven’s nest”.
Things to keep an eye/ear out for:
• I usually quote something funny/weird that Don West says. However, I don’t feel like typing out every single word he utters in this video. Enjoy the goofiness that is….Don West.
• Here’s a tidbit you might not have noticed throughout this match….KEVIN FRIGGIN SULLIVAN PAINTED A REFEREE SHIRT ON HIMSELF!
• Again, I apologize for having to show you David Flair in a wrestling ring. If you get nauseous, please alert the stewardess and a vomit bag will be brought to your seat shortly.
YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE MORNING
YOUR Main Event of the Morning takes us to WCW Starrcade 1986 as the Road Warriors take on the Midnight Express in the (in)famous Scaffold match. While this match showcases very little wrestling, it does show the innovation that came from the South in terms of pushing the envelope and showcasing their top talents in high profile matches.
Your main event worthy commentary of the afternoon:
• If there were a match rating system based on how long Tony Schiavone’s microphone cord is, this would be properly rated.
• I would have thought they would start the match on the ground, but I forgot they aren’t trying to kill time ala WWE.
• I wonder if Mad Man Pondo was watching this match from his barbed-wire cradle…
• Granted, I don’t know how the hell I would react after dropping 25 feet into a wrestling ring. But Jim Cornette’s immediate reaction after falling has to be the best sell I’ve seen in a looong while.
Well that about does it from my end, enjoy your Sunday afternoon!
