There's a real simple solution to Tony not remember certain things: Scrap the stupid "vote on what our show will be next week!" gimmick and have Tony decide the topics that he thinks he would be able to do a good show on/would like to talk about.

Perhaps if Schiavone picked the topics himself and they ditched the poll altogether that would improve things.

Or at the very least, let Tony pick the poll topics based on things that he would like to talk about.

Agreed.

 

I must admit, I only listened to the beginning of the HH97 podcast, but the fact Tony watched the Royal Rumble this year and asked Conrad "Who is Big Cass and why the fuck is he on my TV ? He's the drizzling shits." did crack me up.

I actually like the live watching episodes myself, I listened to the Havoc 95 episode the other day and Tony is hilarious on it. Anytime Okerland did an backstage interview Tony would go full dirty talk and I couldn't stop laughing.

This prompted me to give it a shot. Those Okerlund voice-over segments did crack me up. The Luger interview was insane too.

The Starrcade series leading up to the infamous 97 edition was something else. Schiavone's show won me over once again. The clusterfuck that was Hogan vs Sting at 97 is still fascinating to this day, especially with the 2017 commentary. WCW, still miss ya...

Tony's seemingly realistic orgasmic moan when Madusa's breasts appeared at Starcade 99 made me a bit uncomfortable.  Had it been a comical "UHHHHHHH" instead of a gasp and light moan, I think I wouldn't have been as creeped out. 

Conrad then egged him on by using his bedroom voice and asking Tony how large he thinks they were.

Yeah, it's as if Conrad's thrown in the towel on getting genuine insight out of Tony and has settled for whatever gags he can get.

 

Sounds a bit desperate when he laughs uproariously too.

I've heard rumblings that Conrad is trying to do a show with Bischoff. I don't have my ear to the ground like some of you do, but man I hope that's true.

Could be true, I suppose. Bischoff stopped doing the one he was doing on MLW a few months ago, I think. Didn’t seem like it got any traction. I don’t recall anyone talking about it.

Makes sense. It's basically what Conrad had hoped for the show with Tony to be in the first place, until he realized 1) Schiavone's memory is shit, and 2) Schiavone wasn't keyed into much of anything in terms of decisions or inside information with angles, contracts, or decisions whatsoever. You can tell Conrad was wanting the WCW counterpoint to Prichard's WWF podcast. What he ultimately wound up with is something else entirely.

Damn, that "Bye Bye to the Z-Man" song. 

 

When the bell started ringing at the end. . .someone dumped a bunch of dust in my eyes.

Bunkhouse Stampede was a good episode. Tony had talking points for most of the discussions and the length was manageable.

Thanks for the tip. I've fallen behind on these since Christmas - are any of the other episodes worth seeking out?

Avoid Souled Out 98. One of the worst watch-along show thus far. Spent way too much time not talking about the show *at all*.

What's the best watch-along? I did this with Bruce's show on the '88 Royal Rumble and really enjoyed it.

If the 1998 Souled Out ppv is anything like the 1997 one, I wouldn't blame them for being bored out of their minds and talking about other crap the whole time.

There's plenty of good stuff on Souled Out. The opener, Raven vs Benoit, Jericho vs Rey, Martel vs Booker, Flair vs Bret. And there's plenty of stuff they could have talked about with beginning the last great grossing years for WCW, instead they spend an entire match talking shit of Scott Steiner's owing Conrad money or something.
