Episode 05 of the Iron Man Show Wrestling Podcast covered the following topics:
Challenge – Who will be picked for the 2017 Hall of Fame?
Old Man Joey is challenged with predicting the entrants for the 2017 Hall of Fame. Come back in just under a year to see if he got it right.
Main Event Jobber – WCW Bunkhouse Stampede 1988
Simon made a mistake by suggesting this main event – he actually meant the Tower of Doom match from Great American Bash 1988. Still, we watched the Bunkhouse Stampede main event which saw Dusty Rhodes, Arn Anderson, The Barbarian, The Warlord, Tully Blanchard, Ivan Koloff, Lex Luger and Road Warrior Animal competing in a steel cage match.
King of the Ring Tournament – Best Announcer
A new feature this week. We start a King of the Ring style tournament to determine who is the best ring announcer ever. For obvious reasons Jim Ross (JR) is not included in the tournament. So you could say we’re looking for the second best announcer. The first half of the bracket is covered.
Botch to Broadway – Spring Stampede 1999
We watched WCW Spring Stampede 1999, supposedly the last of the decent WCW PPV events. We cover every match on the card
Tag Team War – Ax or Smash (not Crush)
Another new feature. We discuss tag teams from the past and pick which of the two was the better wrestler, or the better entertainer. This week it’s Demolition, the bondage wearing three time tag team champions. Again, for obvious reasons we did not include Crush in this discussion.
King of the Ring Tournament – Greatest Intercontinental Champion
This is the same sort of thing as the Best Announcer tournament, but for the IC title. This week we cover the first half of the bracket.
