FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION... A Podcast series discussing the nominations for the GWWE project

NOW people want to say nice things about Trish Stratus. I'd be willing to do a whole podcast laying out my case she's the WWF female GOAT if anyone is willing to listen. Or check out my microscope thread if you want to see how much research I've done.
But that aside, I was thinking about avoiding this thinking it another GWE poll like the last one. But if you are going to approach this with such an open mind and produce some amazing podcasts, I guess it's time to start giving this series a listen. Feedback to come soon.

I've really been enjoying these podcasts (and the podblasts and other discussions) precisely because they have been so open minded and people are really stepping up to go to bat for people more outside the box than conventional wisdom would say. With these things there is always a risk that it it's a list of just the most famous or people that won world titles, but it's really great to see so many varied opinions being shared and interesting discussion points raised that's opening my eyes to names you might not think about considering. In particular loved the women's wrestling episode where there was great chemistry between Will. Stacey and Glenn, and I'm definitely another fully on the get Trish Stratus into the top 100 wagon!

Thanks for the nice feedback guys. I had a blast doing the women's show, and I agree that it's been great getting content on a lot of candidates besides the obvious, whether it's women, random midcarders, tag teams, pre-Hogan guys...even Tim going to bat for Pete Dunne or something. We're going to end up with almost all of the candidates delved into in some way or other I imagine, which is fantastic.
PWOers who didn't want to dive back into another GWE should definitely consider getting involved. It is way more relaxed and I think with WWE being what it is, there is more focus on characters and things that are, shall we say, a bit "lighter" than what we often get into here. And all it takes is joining the Facebook group and adding to the discussion on whichever candidates you choose (and listening to the audio of course).
brainfollower the Trish pod is coming!

This is all so awesome to hear and was the goal of this project, a fun, laid back long term project to facilitate discussion and content. It has far exceeded my expectations and I am enjoying every aspect of it.

I'm just now catching up on a bunch of these, and I'm enjoying the hell out of this series.
I really expected to hate the "Worst of the Worst" episode, because I find it annoying when people bitch & moan too much about the wrestling that they habitually and obsessively decide to watch anyway. But the show was a fucking blast. Tremendous, good fun all the way through.
The chemistry between Will and Johnny is still top shelf shit. Sorrow shutting down Will's rant about Muraco had me in stitches. "Yeah, yeah, yeah. And the only thing more boring than a Don Muraco match is your diatribe about how much you hate Don Muraco. So there." Left me legitimately cracking up.
Dylan stole the show though. The line about how Crush should have called his heart punch the Hawaiian Punch was great. Plus the point about Bray Wyatt feeling like such wasted potential was right on point. Calling him "more Kane and less Undertaker" than what people initially thought had me nodding in total agreement, for sure.
But best of all was after Steve piling on the criticisms for Shane McMahon coming in once or twice a year to wrestle a marquee match, only for Dylan to chime in at the end with the, "I'm sorry. My audio went out for a second, but I agree wholeheartedly with everything Steve just said about Brock Lesnar." Fucking fantastic.
The ECW show was a lot of fun, too. Kind of curious to see if Will comes away with a slightly elevated appreciation for Stevie Richards after watching some of his later C-show stuff.

Shane McMahon worked about one month of house shows (17 shows) in late 2003 facing Kane in street fights and cage matches. That is the full extent of his "on the road" work with WWE.

Hey, guys. I completely forgot that I'm a member of this fine message board. Thanks to all for listening and giving feedback. Will has done a fantastic job captaining this series and I'm just happy to be along for the ride. Johnny's memory of the most minute moments in a wrester's career is something to behold, and Dylan is a damn tour de force of wrestling knowledge.
