February 17, 2020

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas flies solo! Referee Mike Crockett and the New England Pro Wrestling Academy's Brian Fury are both MIA, so Milonas is in the driver's seat this week. And as a bit of a pre-celebration for next week's 200th episode, he's sharing some classic clips of his good friend Crockett at (what he says is) his absolute worst, including two of the most infamous one-time bits in WPAN history! But before the burial, The Brawler addresses some controversy after a clip of him from last week's NWA Powerrr episode began circulating in wrestling trainer circles!

February 3, 2020

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett kick it old school without Chaotic Wrestling's Brian Fury this week, and "old school" is our friend Adult Mark's middle name (a weird, two-word middle name, incidentally), so he steps in for our look back at what was the gateway to pro wrestling super fandom back in the day - wrestling magazines! But before we do that, The Brawler recounts in spoiler-free detail his journey to Atlanta for the recent NWA Powerrr tapings, where he debuted alongside his tag team partner the Beer City Bruiser! Hear about his unnecessary Uber ride, who he refused to get in the front seat of the car with, and with which legendary wrestlers he rocked-and-rolled (almost) all night!

Also in this episode, Brian checks out on this Promo About Nothing, Crockett's pillow talk, and we do a little apartment wrestling for fun!

January 27, 2020

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett are without Performance Center regular Brian Fury this week, but they've done this before. Milonas called in a favor, and we've got ROH's play-by-play man Ian Riccaboni (@IanRiccaboni) with us - a guy who made his official debut as lead announcer the same night Brian made his initial ROH appearance! Ian gets into inheriting the announcing mantle from Kevin Kelly, his participation in the upcoming RetroMania Wrestling video game, what goes into preparing for an event, directing traffic in the booth at Madison Square Garden last year (and the history he personally made there), his wrestling debut and the flying elbow heard 'round the world, his Ring Of Honor outlook for 2020, and his new podcast featuring ROH Ambassador Cary Silkin! Plus, of course, burials of Bobby Cruise all around!  

Also in this episode, this Promo About Nothing is magnificent, the world's largest druid revealed, and Crockett has a run-in with SNOOP D-O-Double G!

And, as any Seinfeld fan worth their salt knows, Festivus begins with the Airing of Grievances! Mike and Brian have their own, and of course, they invited friends and listeners to join in on the fun.

December 16, 2019

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas, the New England Pro Wrestling Academy's Brian Fury, and referee Mike Crockett are all back in the same place again, at Fury's school, and they've invited a guest who is very familiar with that facility! He's a former trainer at the original school, the Chaotic Training Center, where he put young Kingpin through the paces back in the day. He's Dukes Dalton, AKA Jim Cody, AKA Annihilator Seek, AKA Dancing Dukes, AKA Kid Delicious, and we talk a little bit about everything he went through in his career. Dukes participated in WWF developmental before there was a developmental system - being around guys like Val Venis, Edge and Kurt Angle at the Funkin' Dojo shows in the late 90s. He also had a stint in the lean years of the NWA as one-half of its World tag Team Champions, and wait to you hear what they went through to try to keep the belts! Hear tons of stories about Killer Kowalski, plus JBL grabbing junk, chasing John Cena out of the building, Isaac Yankem's bathroom break-in and more! A great talk with an old chum!

Crockett’s Wrestling Intervention & Fake Or 500 Is Back - Episode 189

December 9, 2019

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas is buried in boxes at the moment, so Chaotic Wrestling's "Firebrand" Brian Fury used this opportunity to take over the podcast from referee Mike Crockett! What was supposed to be a NXT & AEW review show became a confrontation - an intervention of sorts - where Fury gets to the bottom of Crockett's lack of enthusiasm for today's wrestling product. What is Mike's actual position on the current scene, and can Brian help turn him around? A really interesting discussion on what we grew up with and how it relates to what we see on our TV and in the arenas today. From there, Crocksox looks for revenge by challenging Fury to a game of "Fake Or 500"!

Plus, this Promo About Nothing is about other people's property, Fury returns to the ring (again) this Friday, and our feud with Kofi Kingston & The New Day begins!

Toxic Twitter & Recent Controversies - Episode 185

November 11, 2019

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett, sans Brian Fury, are taking a long, hard look at the recent controversies in the wrestling business and how they have blown up on social media. Starting with Saudi Arabia, and the affect "Wrestling Twitter" had on accelerating this story (or non-story?) to astronomical levels. Also the situation with Jordan Myles/ACH, who made headlines by taking WWE to task through his own social media accounts. And one that's close to Brian, the deal with Joey Mercury exposing some of ROH's business on Twitter. Has social media helped or hurt pro wrestling? What affect has the recent wrestling boom had on wrestling talent in regards to their public opinions? Is there any good to come from online wrestling chatter? We get into all that, PLUS, will any good come of the next installment of Search & Destroy, also known as KINGPIN'S MEAN TWEETS?

In addition, this Promo About Nothing gives a big middle finger, Crockett reveals which wrestling show he's actually watching every week and WEIRD SEARCH TERMS returns!

FTC is the company behind Ring Of Honor's action figure line, so I think you can connect the dots on why Milonas wanted to have him on. But really, Chris is a lifelong wrestling fan who has a great story of how he found his way into a job playing with toys. Figures Toy Company not only produces an ROH line, but works with independent talent and wrestling legends to get figures made of them as well! Chris takes us through the entire process, from signing a talent to a contract to product release. Plus, Brian begs to get a Brawler action figure, how they were able to do a figure of WCW's KISS Demon, and the story of the Kevin Steen/Owens figure that sent Vince McMahon through the roof!

Also in this episode, this Promo About Nothing is a car crash (literally, but not literally), Crockett designs podcast t-shirts (just not ours), and The Brawler is bilingual?

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas, Chaotic Wrestling's "Firebrand" Brian Fury and referee Mike Crockett are celebrating Halloween by talking about the super good and SCARY bad costume changes in wrestling's history - in other words, the business' best and worst gimmick changes!

There's talk of the Brothers of Destruction, one of the Brothers Hardy, a Jive Soul Bro and so many more! What's your favorite or least favorite change of gimmick?

October 7, 2019

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas' situation is addressed this week, and referee Mike Crockett and Brian Fury (@xbrianxfuryx) have a MAJOR, MONUMENTAL, EARTH-SHATTERING ANNOUNCEMENT! You gotta hear this to believe it. Once that is over with, in the aftermath or wrestling returning to TNT (and we give our initial thoughts on All Elite Wrestling's Dynamite), we look back at WCW Monday Nitro - The Good, The Bad & The Nothing! From the big things like the New World Order and Sting, to the obscure crap like the fake Tonight Show and bizzaro Hulk Hogan, we talk about stuff we loved, stuff we hated, and stuff that just didn't amount to anything when it comes to World Championship Wrestling in the mid to late 90s!

September 30, 2019

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas was bleeding buckets this past weekend, and referee Mike Crockett and Brian Fury (@xbrianxfuryx) are talking about it! Milonas made a (red) splash in his pay-per-view debut at ROH's Death Before Dishonor - his face a crimson mask as he battled in a Barroom Brawl alongside his Bouncers partner the Beer City Bruiser against Vinny Marseglia & Silas Young. Find out why this was a most surprising turn of events for our old outspoken pal! We also discuss the end of Matt Taven's much-maligned title reign and why some rejected it. From there, we review the new wrestling calendar and the New Era of Televised Wrestling we are entering this week. We'll analyze each day of the week and what you can expect from RAW on USA, Smackdown on FOX, Impact Wrestling on AXS, AEW Dynamite on TNT, NXT on USA, Beyond Wrestling's Uncharted Territory on IndependentWrestling.TV, plus MLW, New Japan, WOW and more!

Also this week, this Promo About Nothing is sheety, an update on Crockett's blast from the past, and A MAJOR, MONUMENTAL, EARTH-SHATTERING ANNOUNCEMENT comes next week!

September 23, 2019

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas has his name here for no reason really, as referee Mike Crockett and Brian Fury (@xbrianxfuryx) harken back to the olden days of the WPAN and Episode 048, The Name Droppers! In that episode, we talked about interesting run-ins we've had with the well-known stars of pro wrestling. Now, some two-and-a-half years later, Fury is sharing some of his tales of rubbing elbows with the legends - and contributing as well is a podcaster in his own right (just not currently) and the former Chaotic Wrestling owner Jamie Jamitkowski (@JamieJUCW)! Hear about how Greg Valentine prepares for a match, which wrestler roams around middle school classrooms naked, more toe talk with Tony Atlas, why Jamie was keeping tabs on Sunny, what everyone wants (that Fury doesn't), what caused John Cena to walk out of a Chaotic show after one match, how Ricky Morton feels about Jerry Lynn's spots, why Big Show lectured a guy at baggage claim and so much more! Many names are dropped and you'll love every minute of it!

Plus, this Promo About Nothing is hung over, Crockett's past comes back to haunt him, and everyone's career is over in Woburn, MA!

We chat with the former "Thriller Of New England" about the Michael Jackson gimmick he started with and why it took him so long to shed it, how Crockett's amazing idea for Christian went south, repping that Killanova Culture, working with REY MYSTERIO, getting spots on ROH and EVOLVE shows in the span of a week, and so much more!

Plus, this Promo About Nothing leaves a bad impression, Ivar has a cold one, and guess who's gonna show up on pay-per-view before showing up to do a podcast?

It's been over a year since we've reviewed a pay-per-view with Tarzan, and with the King Of The Ring being revived in 2019, we figure why not take a peek back at one of the most reviled KOTR shows from 1995! We get more Savio Vega then anybody could ever handle, a heaping helping of Hendrix, just enough Mr. Backlund, Mabel as a luchador, a vomiting King Lawler and a main event that makes us want to puke!

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett have booked wrestling, and they've booked some good wrestling... and they've booked some god awful wrestling. This week, we are looking back at some of the worst stuff we put out there as bookers of an independent organization. What returning tag team's music caused the crowd to go "huh?" How does a woman with a broken arm keep her cast so bright and clean? What happened after Milonas hit a whoopie cushion and his knee made a fart noise?

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett are wrestling documentary guys. In fact, we talked about our favorites in episode 160! We've just seen a great new doc called "350 Days" and now we're speaking with executive producer and director of the film, Fulvio Cecere. The movie explores the highs and lows of the territory days through interviews with major names from the era. Fulvio has some major stars involved like Bret Hart, "Superstar" Billy Graham, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine, Tito Santana and so many more, and we detail some of the jaw-dropping things they said about the fast times of the 1980s in particular. As an actor, did Fulvio relate to the talent he was speaking with? What was one of the most shocking lines uttered in "350 Days" (and it has to do with...lines)? And we talk about the never-before-seen strange-as-hell footage of the legendary Killer Kowalski that turns up in the movie!

Finally, we talk with Anthony Brogna, a touring rapper in a previous life, who has begun making waves in Chaotic and elsewhere as Royce Bishop of Killanova Inc. In this episode, you'll get some amazing insight on the early stages of a pro wrestling career that us grizzled vets can't give you!

Then, from there, we look at the vast sea of pro wrestling schools in the New England area - from the days of Killer Kowalski's Institute of Professional Wrestling to the tons of training facilities today that probably owe a debt of gratitude to the Killer!

Plus, a whack packin' Promo About Nothing, perverts are disappointed in our website, and The Bouncers are your number one contenders to the ROH World Tag Team Titles!

The Return of Matt “Tarzan Taylor” Spectro (and Julian Starr) - Episode 161

May 27, 2019

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett welcome back one of our most popular guests, the one and only Matt "Tarzan Taylor" Spectro and he's joined by another notable New England wrestling name, Julian Starr - and they've got an announcement to make! But before that, we clear the air after Brian's recent tirade upon hearing (some of) an appearance Tarzan made on the "Let The Chaos Begin" podcast. We'll also talk to Julian about his TWO exits from wrestling and why he's back now as a commentator. Plus, how do they feel about the booming indy wrestling industry and do they think they bowed out too early? And yeah, that announcement... that will make New England pro wrestling fans very happy!

Also this week, a magical Promo About Nothing, The Brawler assaults a little person, and the survey is still live and we need YOUR opinions about the WPAN! tinyurl.com/WPANsurvey

Best Wrestling Documentaries & Travel Day From Hell - Episode 160

Best Wrestling Documentaries & Travel Day From Hell - Episode 160

May 20, 2019

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett take you to the movies this week - not to Endgame, because Crockett went over the weekend - but we're gonna do the Siskel & Ebert gimmick with wrestling documentaries! There's some great stuff out there right now, and we'll break that down too, but we are looking back at the all-time greatest docs out there: WWE produced stuff, independently produced features, even mainstream commercial pictures. Which WWE doc might have been the first and is probably the best? What little-known film about a comedian is a stellar wrestling doc pick? Who is the Vince McMahon of backyard wrestling? And finally, which wrestling documentaries are Mike & Brian's number one picks? Also, Brian The Brawler shares his travel story as he tried to get to Grand Rapids for Ring Of Honor in one piece!

Plus, a totally bogus Promo About Nothing, we talk Tommaso & Dijak(ovic) injuries, we celebrate THREE YEARS of podcasting, and we ask you to take our friggin' survey! tinyurl.com/WPANsurvey

First Day Of Wrestling School, Worst Stuff We Booked & Our Worst Matches - Episode 159

May 13, 2019

Ring Of Honor Wrestling's "The Brawler" Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett have done a lot of podcasting - just about three years' worth, in fact - and a lot of it, you may have missed. This week, we're sharing some of the personal tales we told on our companion podcast for BDA Radio in 2017, and if you haven't listened to those gems, it's new to you! First, Milonas recounts his very first day at the Chaotic Training Center (now the New England Pro Wrestling Academy) and why he almost stopped before he even really started. Then, we've both had the opportunity to book angles for Chaotic Wrestling and we reveal the worst stuff we ever booked! And finally, we admit, they haven't all been winners - the worst matches we've ever been involved in! Join us as we bare our souls AGAIN on the WPAN.

Plus, saddle up for an all-time CLASSIC Promo About Nothing, Brian's travel woes and HEY YO, help us out by taking this survey! tinyurl.com/WPANsurvey
