I really like how you guys are presenting terrible wresting and have managed to do it in a different way than Wrestlecrap tended to approach things. It feels really fresh.

Thank you.

 

To be honest, I was trying to crib the "How did this get made" podcast, which looks at bad movies. Kind of wanted a fun, but not mean show. Glad it's working for you, it's fun to record.

I liked how on the WWIII podcast you guys briefly talked about "WCW sucked sometimes because they had big ideas" instead of "LOLWCWDUM".

Hardcore Elimination Chamber might deserve an in a vacuum look.

Sure even looking at it from a story telling standpoint with Punk and RVD getting tossed early its bad, but I dont think its as bad when you look at it knowing everything about the show, Heymans issues leading up to the show, and his ouster afterwards, etc.

 

Here you go!

The Golden Grahams are here to talk the Extreme Elimination Chamber, as requested by Steve J. Rogers at prowrestlingonly.com. We can talk about your match by requesting it there, or @StevenGrahamTWS on twitter.

 

A match that sunk a brand, we talk about the match plus CM Punk, TNA history, politics, and we have a power outage. This show is a clusterfuck, just like this match?

I totally forgot that TNA did so many box gimmicks, my bad.

My request is for the Knockouts Lockbox Challenge which was for the women's title (amongst other things), that aired on Impact 5th April 2010. I hate to pile on but it was like a show long angle where they did the match, then the reveals, then the consequences kind of thing.

They also did Feast or Fired which was where there were multiple briefcases to get and like, one or more was for a title shot and one got you fired, which is what y'all were also thinking of.

JR has found me a Knockouts Lookbox Challenge from TV and we will watch that. I hope it's the same one. Either way, I assume it would qualify!

I realize it's Russo and well-known, but you have to do the Junkyard Invitational at Bash at the Beach 1999

Right that's Kevin Nash as head booker, and a true nadir.

I think that one also needs the list of injuries sustained to be read off.

FYI, there have been a number of Chamber matches featuring multiple stable/faction members.

Twice with Evolution, including one where Batista sacrificed himself so Triple H could retain his title. And Legacy broke up in one where DiBiase turned on Orton.

Completely forgot about those.

I've been meaning to say, thank you guys for giving me this birthday present. It was everything I imagined it would be.

 

This Impact episode was one of the few I actually watched on TV as it happened, with my mother in the room, so you can imagine how embarrassing this was as I was trying to sell her on us watching TNA every week (I was very into hate watching and reviewing TNA at that point, it would have made it much more convenient).

 

This whole thing was like the perfect combination of WWE-style misogyny, WCW-style wacky nonsensical stips and TNA-style utter stupidity.

 

"The rules are simple" was an all-time amazing line and became a running joke in my house for a good long while.

You mentioned that there was a second guy in the truck, I remember when I first watched this noticing how obvious it was that Hogan was not driving from the exterior shots as you can see them through the windscreen driving the thing.

But the best bit about the monster truck match is that HOGAN DOES A HULK UP IN A MONSTER TRUCK MATCH!!!! When you got a formula you really got a formula.
