Chewie is joined by fellow 406er Pip to talk about their all time favorite WWE / WWF wrestlers. This is the podcast / vlog that they’ve been talking about for years now. It’s the first of (hopefully) many in this two man format. NOTE: the video is sort of choppy but audio is perfect. We’re looking into converting this into an audio only podcast format. Stay tuned!

Chewie talks about his all time favorite WWE / WWF wrestlers and why his beard looks so silly. Also… I’m THRILLED to report that my brother Pip is going to join me on an upcoming episode to re-do this list and to give you his thoughts – stay tuned!

To say I’m behind on my blog here would be an understatement. I just went through and cleaned up my drafts. (IE, removed stuff that I’d started and won’t bother finishing because it’s no longer topical or relevant). I’m still left with over 50 drafts. And that DOESN’T include at least a dozen or so that I know are coming but I’ve not officially started. All of that said, I figured tonight is as good … Continue reading
I hate writing posts like this. I found out today that former WWF wrestler “Iron Mike” Sharpe passed away yesterday at the age of 64. Apparently he’d been battling health issues for quite some time. While Sharpe was known best for being a “jobber” in the WWF (a guy that loses most of his matches) he actually won quite a few championships throughout his career. Being a jobber or enhancement talent is a lost art … Continue reading
I ran across this meme of professional wrestler A.J. Styles talking about “marks”. “People use the word “mark” as some sort of disparaging term. It’s not. We, as wrestling fans, are all marks. If you’ve ever bought a ticket to show, you’re a mark. If you’ve ever cheered or booed someone, you’re a mark. Hell, I’m a mark. I am a professional wrestling mark. Being a mark isn’t bad. It should be a term of … Continue reading
So my brother Mark went and bought himself a kickass new toy last week – a WWF Royal Rumble pinball machine from 1994. This goes nicely with his Tommy Pinball Wizard machine but I digress… So I went over this weekend to help him get it into the basement and get it set up. This machine is beautiful. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up. With that said though, we’ve got an … Continue reading
Reports are coming out from TMZ and other news sources that on tonight’s edition of Monday Night RAW, the WWE will announce its first entry into the 2015 WWE HOF Class and it will be none other than Randy “Macho Man” Savage! This is YEARS too late in my book but I’m happy that it appears as if it’s going to happen. I posted this plea directly to Vince and crew back when Randy passed … Continue reading
Just days after he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, the Ultimate Warrior has passed away at the age of 54. The story broke last night just after midnight when real life WWE Chief Operating Officer and WWE Superstar Triple H announced the news via Twitter. Warrior, who was born Jim Hellwig but legally changed his name to simply Warrior in 1993, was on RAW Monday night for the first time in years. … Continue reading
