Agreed. Bravo, guys. That was some god damn glorious entertainment. Felt like totally random talking points, but it had me cracking up a number of times.

 

Gotta request the Hales Bros. combo on more pods now. Put 'em in matching gear & turn 'em loose. Book it.

Was quite taken aback that Devon sounded SO much like Dylan. I was lucky enough to have Skype light up with the right person when they were talking or I would have been completely and utterly lost. 

 

Also, appreciate the kind words about the show because I need positive reinforcement even if I didn't necessarily bring the positive entertainment value ;)

Sam and Tanner are joined by the ignorant Case Lowe and the kind Garrett Kidney. There's wrestling talk somewhere on this show. Sam lets Case talk about Dragon Gate which leads to some instant regret. We try and figure out how being a well-adjusted TNA fan is a possibility*. Video games are also discussed cause Bloodborne is the GOTY.
*Not sure it is really possible.

'There's wrestling talk somewhere on this show.'

 

Seriously? Check out the chatter in the Lapsed Fan thread boys.

Award shows are happening and the Always Bury Tanners are certainly a couple of those shows. We brought in the big guns for our panel as Sam and Tanner are joined by Dylan Hales, Fray, and TJ Hawke. The rules of the awards are not very simple. There will be a top 3 decided for each category in Part 1 of the Always Bury Tanners. The top 3 will be decided by bantering, bartering, and general ruckus. Once the top 3 are set we put them in order to have a clear winner and two runner-ups.
 
Awards on Part 1 of the Always Bury Tanners:
 
Best Tournament
 
HOOT of the Year
 
Show of the Year
 
Tag Team of the Year

This is our last show on our SoundCloud and that feed. Will plug away once I know everything is up and running. 
EDIT: RSS feed is up and will update iTunes and Stitcher next week. So if you are waiting to download past episodes, not sure why you would, do that before then cause those shows will go to the nether after next week http://wrestlingwith...-know-wrestling

http://wrestlingwith...tanners-part-2/ 
Part 2 of the potentially award winning wrestling award show. Thought Part 1 was an epic disaster? We haven’t even scratched the surface. Sam and Tanner are once again joined by Dylan Hales, Fray, and TJ Hawke. Someone is steamrolled, narratives are questioned, stunning arguments are lost in the deep darkness of the interweb. Technical issues would not stop the Always Bury Tanners. Once again, feel free to tweet thoughts on the show with #WDKW so I can shamelessly RT or Like your tweets to give the illusion of interacting with the audience.

Awards on this show are:

Promotion of the Year

Match of the Year

Wrestler of the Year

Kris Zellner joins us this week for the most wrestling-centric podcast We Don’t Know Wrestling has ever experienced. The days preceding this podcast were absolutely nutty. You have AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Karl Anderson, and Doc Gallows leaving NJPW probably for WWE. You have a very nice lookingFantasticaMania lineup from NJPW/CMLL. You also have the tremendous weekend for Georgia pro wrestlingup ahead. On top of all that? Yeah, John Cena’s injury breaks on air.

Southern wrestling and star ratings go together about as well as the American justice system and Steven Avery. Yet here Sam and Tanner are joined by Devon Hales this week talking probably a little too much about both. Devon this prior weekend had gone on a southern indie tour to WrestleMerica, Universal Independent Wrestling, and Atlanta Wrestling Entertainment. We talk about the switcher-a-roo that occurred at WrestleMerica as well as the HOT Chip Day vs. Tommaso Ciampa match from AWE. Somehow things unraveled into a topic about star ratings and the apparent subjective nature of the meaning of any and all symbols. Fair to say that Tanner was incorrect. OTHER THINGS THAT GET MENTIONED: ROH is running a inflatable tube man card in Atlanta, Virus vs. Jushin Liger still feels like a dream, EVOLVE has a Style Battle Tournament that no one is really talking about, and Tanner does not go to indie shows. Plus more that I am probably forgetting while typing this up.

Hugh Little everybody! Hugh joins Tanner and Sam as they discuss what Tanner calls “Like another WrestleMania Weekend.” A truly inspiring description if there ever was one, believe that. Truly though, we try and run the gambit of events going down from Proving Ground Pro to EVOLVE to ROH to WWE and before we finish up we give Fantasticamania a quick hit as well. Tanner takes the reigns for most of this week…so if you are wondering how that goes you absolutely should listen.

http://wrestlingwith...freelance-mark/

Mark Maxwell joins Sam and Tanner this week as they break down the rad looking Freelance Wrestling card going down on February 5th, The Scene Is Dead, Long Live The SceneWe learn of a new match that will be happening on the show, Sam momentarily expresses his disdain for Ethan Page as a wrestler, talk aboutintergender wrestling happens, and of course we show our love for the one and only Jimmy Rave. Looks like a hot show that will be streamed LIVE on YouTube for FREE! If you like what you see and can afford to send a little scratch their way then donate a little. That money goes straight to booking even more cool talent. If you can’t, at least spread the word on Twitter.

After Mark leaves the guys the show goes down hill in a hurry. Sam is trying to book a Brazilian version of PRIDE which means he really isn’t listening to Tanner while he does some back patting. Great audio content.

WE ARE BACK!

 

http://wrestlingwith...ng-gwe-bonanza/

We Don’t Know Wrestling is back after a short break and we are joined by Case Lowe this time out to talk the Greatest Wrestler Ever project over at PWO. We run through our tentative top 10s, who has gone up our ballots, who has fallen down are ballots, and wrestlers we are sure unsure about whether we will rank at all. The lists are weird and still don’t have a clue what we are doing except for maybe Case. But he has less of a life than us so I guess it is okay.

Would be interested if Tanner and Case have watched the July 1994 Williams match lately. I though Misawa was grand in that match. I can see Misawa hiding in tags as a critique that is worthy of throwing on Misawa but saying hes never the best guy in a match is a pretty extreme statement to make.

I haven't watched it in awhile but I've seen it before. I don't think I meant to say that he's *never* been the best guy in a match, but he's certainly played second fiddle in a lot of matches that I've seen recently.

May just be a matter of tastes as with the Kawada/Misawa tags vs. Jumbo/Taue I have preferred Misawa for most of those as evidenced in my burning question reviews. Agree with you and Parv that Misawa typically does hide out in tags with Akiyama and Kobashi. To me that adds to his case more but I certainly can see it as a negative as well. 

 

Overall this was a fun podcast to listen to and a lot of guys were covered. Watching IWA-MS in US HIstory class is also hilarious and actually sounds appropriate to me.

Been a bit since I've seen that match myself, but I do agree that saying he was *never* the best guy in a match was a little extreme. It is really no slight considering he was in there with guys I love like Kawada, Kobashi, Taue and Vader and I still think he is fantastic wrestler, just the lesser of those guys I mentioned.

He doesn't exactly "hide out" he does what Baba asked of all his aces in tags. Baba himself worked like that in the 70s tagging with Jumbo, who then worked like that in tags from about 1985 to about 1990 wherein Misawa became the ace and then worked like that himself. That's why you get people saying Jumbo was #4 guy in the Choshu / Yatsu tags. It was the house style and I don't see it as a negative.

The ace let their partner shine more because typically that partner is playing FIP and the ace is bailing them out. Misawa might have a FIP sequence if they work it double heat, but it will be shorter and come second. And he will invariably be involved in the finishing stretch.

The ranking of Masaaki Mochizuki over Ric Flair by someone on the panel somewhat undermined later claims that it isn't a favourites list. Some of the gaps were a bit surprising to me, I see stuff like Steamboat and Savage greatest hits as just basic stuff that every hardcore fan has seen, so it still comes as a shock when people haven't seen that stuff. There was probably a little bit too much Dragongate and current stuff discussion for a show about GWE, at least for my tastes.

I thought some of the questions at the end were interesting, especially the one about "who will make every single ballot". Vader was a good shout.

This is what I figured you were going to bring up. Honest question, not trying to provoke you or anything, how much Mochizuki have you seen? Because I've spent time in Mochi's thread and I plan to spend even more time over the next few days building his case. I can fully back up my claims as to why I think he's better than Flair and why I think he's a Top 10 wrestler of all-time. I get that I'm in the minority, but I firmly believe that. 

 

Glad you listened. I appreciate your feedback.

Mochizuki looks like a sloppy fake karate guy in the 90s and I really don't see how anyone could be super high on that stuff, and that's the only period from which I could imagine Parv watching a match of his. He's essentially another worker in Dragon Gate, which I'm sure Parv would love and would instantly convince him modern wrestling is better than "old school".
