And here's the counter for every single thing he said.crxQUfC.jpg

 
I honestly don't get this. How does the curtain call effect his reputation as a performer?
I don't dispute the claims that Michaels was a giant dick, but if you're using that as a catch-all for discrediting his candidacy for the GWE then I'm at a total loss as to what we're even trying to accomplish with it. Not that I wasn't more than a little confused to begin with.
Because it massively exposed the business and took place in the middle of the ring and therefore was actually part of what fans saw?

I hold Shawn directly responsible for many turns for the worse that wrestling too. WWE Main event style, breaking kayfabe, worked shoot promos, and so on.

Also, unprofessionalism is and should be held against other candidates. Bruiser Brody, for example, or Mil Mascaras. Those guys were dicks and that dickishness did affect their work and it IS held against them. I hold unprofessionalism against Shawn.

He was #48 on my list I think.

Fair enough. I guess I was just reading it in my head as: 

Marty: He had great matches!
JvK: Curtain call.

Marty: He was wicked charismatic!

JvK: Curtain call.

Marty: DX was the most heelish thing ever!
JvK: Curtain call.

...which was annoying.

There's a lot more to it. No wrestler has ever made me as embarrassed to be a fan. I think he arguably has more downright cringe moments than David Brent does in the entirety of The Office.

Marty turns face again with the Cena rant. Absurd ranking but I'll forgive it for the promo.

I had a great time doing this with Sleeze but by the end I was running on fumes and basically playing the "check out this podcast for my views on this guy" card quite a bit

Come on, Tim and I did 5.5 hours straight on our top 50 with energy to spare! Another reason Toronto is better than Vancouver folks!

 

 
Canuck-on-Canuck crime. Ouch.

 

 

Have to speak up for my hometown of Vancouver. And I've lived in Toronto. No contest.

I am just past the Cena rant, and I kind of love you and hate you in equal measure right now Sleaze. I agree with every word you said obviously and I absolutely love that you have him that high. But fuck man. You have set the bar too high. I will try but there's no way my case for Cena will be anywhere near as good as that.

Popped for #8 as well.

This has been another super enjoyable show, it got me through the special brand of self-torture I call "running" this afternoon. I ended up scaring a bunch of unsuspecting kids by suddenly exclaiming "He does look like Johnny Unitas!" really loudly.

 

Most importantly, I'd like to thank you for the super nice promo putting Matt and I over at the start of the show. Much appreciated, but it's even a little embarrassing to me because your show - just like all the others so far - has been so fucking great, and I honestly feel like a pale imitation of actual legit podcasters like yourselves.

Why do people think the curtain call was some big deal at the time? The only people who knew about it were the crowd at MSG and readers of the sheets.

 Because it's referenced in WWE revisionist lore as the only reason HHH wasn't pushed as the gigantic superstar he obviously deserved to be even sooner

Marty, when you discussed Akiyama on here you talked about a certain episode of NOAH. Can you name, date or link to that episode?

I think we will cover it in full on AJ Excite when it returns.

Finally finished this yesterday morning but forgot to come back and say how enjoyable this was.  Thought you guys found a great sweet spot between discussing why you like the wrestlers you ranked *and* the matches that stood out in that context as well as on their own.  It was also great to hear your fawning and raving escalate as you moved up the list as it really came across how much stronger you both felt about the names higher on the

 

It also didn't hurt that I think my top 10 has 6 or 7 names in common with Sleeze's, including 3-4 at the exact same spot.  You know your rasslin!  Kelly's list?  There was some very strong yay/boo action going on with alternating picks, but hey, the man knows what he likes and has/hasn't seen.  Can't complain about consistency.

 

Loved hearing how you came to NY for the ROH show just to see Liger.  I also went to that show for the exact same reason, though I only had to hop on the subway for a minute rather than head out of town.  But no chance was I missing Jushin Liger in person.

August 5, 2000 at Differ Ariake is the debut show and features Misawa & Taue vs Kobashi & Akiyama in 2 out of 3 falls match. Angle after match to set up the next night so be sure to check it out.

 

August 6, 2000 at Differ Ariake is the second show and features Akiyama vs Kobashi in the main event and Misawa & Ogawa vs Ikeda & Shiga, Taue & Izumida vs No Fear in the co-main events.

 

Very cool we were at the same show! I met Adam Cole & Jimmy Jacobs after the show. They were cool. Great minds think alike!

 

Thanks Eegah! We will try. My life was kinda clusterfuck and still, but good news, I fucking love wrestling again. Was burnt out for a couple months so that should help overcome my clusterfuck life right now.

Holy Cena. That's my favorite thing from any of the GWE pods I've gone through so far. I almost felt you transforming into John Cena.

Great show guys, really liked Kelly's old school and proud stance, and Marty brought the vim and vigour.
