Welcome again to the Iron Man Show podcast, the UK wrestling fan’s survival guide hosted by The Real Deal Simon Prior, The Fallen Angel and Old Man Joey. On this week’s show:
In this week’s news, we looked at the latest legal scandals to be aimed at WWE, namely that of Brock Lesnar and the group of former wrestlers claiming costs for possible brain damage. Yeah, good luck with that.
2. Draft Picks
We went back over our fantasy draft picks from last week and saw how close we were to reality. The answer is: not much.
3. Fatally Flawed Way
The Real Deal has a new feature this week: four wrestlers who you wouldn’t want to see in a match… who would win? This week: David Otunga, Shawn “Meat” Stasiak, Heidenreich and Snitsky duke it out in our fantasy battle.
4. Battleground Card Predictions
Sometimes our release schedule does us no favours. Recorded ahead of this weekend’s Battleground PPV, we discuss our predictions for the card and whether or not we’re looking forward to it.
5. Cruiserweight Classic Episodes 1 & 2
A quick discussion on the first two episodes of the inaugural Cruiserweight Classic. It’s looking good so far.
6. Main Event Jobber – Hulk Hogan vs Shawn Michaels, Summerslam 2005
We revisit the main event from Summerslam 2005. It’s an interesting one, in that the backstage politics are more interesting than the match itself.
7. Why WCW Sucked – Part 5
The Fallen Angel has an issue with Nick Patrick. The reason? Tune in to find out.
