Welcome to a special BREAKING NEWS edition of the Cewshcast. With today's announcement that Kurt Angle and AJ Styles are replacing Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt at WWE TLC in 2 days due to an outbreak of meningitis, there is a ton to break down and speculate about. What does this mean for TLC? What does this mean for Wrestlemania? Hell, what does this mean for the entire damn roster and everyone coming to the show?
Enjoy this breakdown of the events, and a little TLC preview tacked on as well as Cewsh, The Law and DDT bring the knowledge!
Welcome to another episode of the Lawcast! This week on the show we're talking about WCW Halloween Havoc 91, which is the wackiest goddamn show you could imagine. We've got Kevin Nash as the Great and Power Oz getting jobbed in 3 minutes. We've got the amazing debut of the Halloween Phantom being spoiled by Tony Schiavone, and lots more, but the true reason to come and listen is to find out about the single worst gimmick match ever put on PPV. The Chamber of Horrors match.
Welcome to a new episode of the Lawcast! On the heels of a horribly mediocre show punctuated by a cool Hell in a Cell match, we decided to talk about another show that follows that exact same formula, WWF Badd Blood 1997! This show ends with one of the greatest matches in WWE history, and maybe the best outside interference in wrestling history but HOLY SHIT was it a wild journey to get there. Gang wars, a 20 minute flag match, MINIS and the worst handled death announcement imaginable. All this and more!
Welcome back to another episode of the Lawcast! With the announcement that Wargames is returning to the wrestling world, we went back to the 90s to talk about a show that Law calls one of the best PPVs EVER. The amount of stuff on here is absolutely nuts. Benoit vs. Jericho, Chavo Guerrero's best ever match against someone not named Rey Mysterio, a hilarious trainwreck orchestrated by Konnan and, most importantly, the epic conclusion of to the Song of Ice and Fire.
But those are all just sprigs of parsley on the plate compared to the main event, which featured an incredible match highlighted by one of the best angles in wrestling history. The fall of Sting to the dark side. We could have done 3 hours on just this segment, and we break down everything that makes it brilliant and unique in wrestling history.
Welcome back, cats and kittens, to the Lawcast! This week we're focusing in on a very specific date in wrestling history. On September 22nd, 1997 Stone Cold Steve Austin stunned Vince McMahon in the middle of the ring, touching off perhaps the greatest and most lucrative feud in wrestling history. We're going all in on this Madison Square Garden supershow as WWF loaded up all their biggest guns and shot them at Nitro to...mixed success.
What was weird about the main event? Why did Austin/McMahon work so goddamn well? And what is one of the most underrated matches of the 90s? Listen on to find out.
Hiya, and welcome back for another installment of the Lawcast! This week Law and Cewsh break down a show that could LOOSELY be called a classic, and try to make sense of what in the hell was going in in WCW under the direction of Jim Herd. Confederate flags wielded by faces AND heels, a varied collection of weirdo ideas, and the crown jewel of them all. The mysterious man himself. THE BLACK SCORPION.
Welcome back to another installment of the Lawcast! This week, we're going back to TNA for the second time, and we're going to take a good long look at how Jeff Jarrett and the gang chose to display this magnificent company to the world for the first time. We'll talk about wrestling most important fishing trip, Vince Russo's love of tag teams, and the sad end to the careers of Scott Hall, Ken Shamrock and basically the entire WCW midcards. Also, two giant penises named the Johnsons!
Welcome back to another exciting installment of the Lawcast! This week we go way over our usual time because we just can't stop talking about Unforgiven 99. We go into more detail than anyone deserves about the goddamn Kennel From Hell match, (the only match ever given 0 out of 100 by Cewsh Reviews,) but we also get a chance to talk about this era as a whole, as this is the very last WWF show ever written by Vince Russo. All that plus the dream match that wasn't, poor out of place British Bulldog, and entirely too many references to Something To Wrestle.
Welcome back, cats and kittens, to a brand new Lawcast! This week Law and Cewsh head to Sturgis, South Dakota for about the last thing you'd ever expect to find in Sturgis, South Dakota. A wrestling show! Marvel at the hubris it took to stage a wrestling show in the middle of goddamn nowhere surrounded by apathetic bikers. Be dazzled by the quality of wrestling you get from guys in the middle of a dirt road. And feel the deepest of sympathies for the Giant, as he is buried so deeply that he never escaped. All this and one of the most iconic moments in wrestling history!
Hot on the heels of a Summerslam that was perhaps not so good, we finish off our series of Summerslam podcasts with what may very well be the greatest Summerslam of all time. From the one in a lifetime venue, to the absolutely incredible main event, to yet another great Ultimate Warrior match, this show had it all. Even Crush! Especially Crush! It's the Summerslam you thought you would never see!
