Episode XXVIII: Canadian Stampede

Grab your stetson and strap on your lycra because we're heading north of the border for some hot wrestling action. Yes, The Conquistabores are heading to Canada to check out a bonkers pay per view that borders on the early WWF Attitude era. See! Bret Hart lead the Hart Foundation against Stone Cold Steve Austin and some other people. Wince! As Undertaker takes on Vader! Gasp! As Jerry Lawler gets to commentate on a match with two Japanese wrestlers and doesn't say anything racist. Yep, this...


Episode XXVII: All In

The Conquistabores are back, again, and this time they're ALL IN with All Elite Wrestling as they take a look at the ALL IN pay per view as they're ALL IN etc etc. Yes, it wasn't AEW when they did the show but thats not the point, the point is that for the first time in a while its a non WWE/WCW show. Do they enjoy the raft of indie superstars on the card? What about the NWA title being on the line? And a parade of men in cock suits? Well, that last one you can guarantee they'll enjoy....


Episode XXVI: The Great American Bash 1989

It's the return of The Conquistabores as they take on The Great American Bash of 1989! Yes, it's another WCW pay per view and yes, as a matter of fact, there are two rings setup. But don't turn the podcast off just yet, this might actually be a good one! Well, mostly. Look, it's got Ric Flair and Terry Funk so I'm sure it'll be good. Finding out for definite will be Cam, Euan and Phil as they navigate their way through the late 80s WCW roster trying to find something anything that even...


Episode XXV: WrestleMania X

Oh boy, we missed a couple of deadlines didn't we? No matter, the Conquistabores finally got their ducks in a row and recorded a new podcast! Yes, you finally get to hear Cam, Phil, Euan and Al all talking about WrestleMania X! Yep, the one with two Yokozuna matches. And THAT match with Crush. Look, it's not the finished moment in wrestling history but there are still some positives to take away which we will get to at some point. If you like the show please leave us a review on iTunes, a...


Episode XXIV: The Greatest Wrestling Promo Ever

Well let me tell you this brother, The Conquistabores are back and they're here to talk about wrestling promos! Tell em, nameless narrator! Thats right, we've been wining and dining with kings and queens and sleeping in alleys eating beans, all to find you the very best wrestling promo. And by you, I mean everyone. But of course, we first have to decide what a promo is and then stop Al from mentioning The Bushwhackers every few minutes so, in many ways, it's a pretty regular show. After...


Episode XXIII: ECW One Night Stand 2005

OH MY GAHD we're back with another episode of The Conquistabores! On this episode there are unprotected chair shots to the head, inappropriate language and beer all over the place because we're talking about ECW! But not the original era ECW, no, we're talking about the One Night Stand pay per view from 2005! That's right, it's an arena full of drunk fans, bonkers wrestlers and a balcony of heat generating WWE superstars. Cam Euan and Phil pick their way through the broken tables to watch...


Episode XXII: WWF Brawl for All

Welcome back to the new episode of everyone's (fifteenth) favourite wrestling podcast, The Conquistabores! And this week we're looking at the pay pew view from...wait, what? We're doing what? But it isn't a pay per view? Like, it was on Raw and that but it wasn't like it's own show. Are you sure are sure. Great. Right. WWF Brawl For All it is, then. Yep, the grand Attitude Era dalliance with MMA only it's just really boxing with a bit of wrestling as you can't kick and everyone...


Episode XXI: WWF No Mercy 1999

Happy New Year! Yes, this podcast is a good month (or two late) which is entirely the fault of Phil thanks to a combination of illness, laziness and Christmasness. Also, he only appears for a short while in this show before his router went the way of Jeff Hardy at the end of TLC II. Speaking of which, the remaining Conquistabores spend this show talking about the WWE pay per view No Mercy 1999 which contained the first Tag Team Ladder match between Edge and Christian and The Hardys. Euan,...


Episode XX: Starrcade '83 - A Flair For The Gold

Yes! We're late; we've overcome computers dying, illness, ill timed birthdays and returns from school trips. None of that has stopped The Conquistabores though! And this week we've gone back to the beginning (ish) as we take on Starrcade 1983 A Flair For The Gold! That's right, we're talking closed circuit TV, no ring entrances and a steel cage! Blood, guts and casual racism! Oh yes, it's Southern Wrestling in the early 80s and it's not messing around! Join Euan, Cameron, Phil and Geordie Al...


Episode XIX: The Greatest Video Game Challenge

It’s the type of episode that could tear the podcast in two! Or four, even. That’s right, it’s our next roundtable episode where The Conquistabores sit down to decide something and this time it’s to decide just what is The Greatest Wrestling Video Game Ever! Oh yeah, we’re not fooling around with this one! Cam, Euan, Phil and Geordie Al are breaking out the controllers and the multitaps and sorting out the Fire Pros from the Backyard Wrestlings. Can they actual come to a decision that...


Episode XVIII: WCW WrestleWar 1992

Deep in the heart of the Conquistabores, hidden behind secret doors and buried in the casket the Undertaker built for Kamala, is a secret tome that contains the Do’s and Don’ts of The Conquistabores. And right up at the top, even before “Kayfabe, brother”, the Number One Rule is “Never Go Back To Back WCW”. Well, rules were made to be broken so thats just what we’ve done as we go to WAR with WCW WrestleWar 1992. Yes, we’re talking two rings, ten wrestlers, a pinch of logic and a whole heap...


Episode XVII: Starrcade 1991 - Battlebowl - The Lethal Lottery

The Conquistadores return to the hallowed halls of WCW yet again for their first ever listener selection! And what a show they have selected: Starrcade 1991: Battlebowl - The Lethal Lottery! Thats right, not only has it the most convoluted title of a PPV we've looked at so far, but it also has 40 wrestlers! Tag teams! A glittery tombola! Truly this is the pinnacle of early 90s WCW. Or is it? You'll have to listen to Cam, Phil, Euan and Geordie Al as they attempt to figure out just what the...


Prime Time Conquistabores: That Time Phil Agreed With The Miz

So thanks to a random twitter conversation with Andi Hamilton (freelance games writer, wrestling fan and late of Midnight Resistance podcast) Phil ended up watching a match from New Japan Pro Wrestling's New Beginning 2017. And from that, he somehow ended up agreeing with The Miz. How and, indeed, why? Well, listen to the show. It's not that long.


Episode XVI: Royal Rumble 1992

It's a Conquista-return as after a couple of Prime Times it's back to the warm and embracing arms of Euan, Cam, Phil and Geordie Al as they set to work on another Pay Per View. This time it's the Royal Rumble from 1992. Yes, it's the Flair Rumble which, given how much they all loved WrestleMania XIII, should mean that this one has a positive response. But does it though, even with the Greatest Tag Team Of All Time gracing the undercard? Well, you'll just have to listen to find out won't you!...


Prime Time Conquistabores: IconoConquistabores

Prime Time Conquistabores is back! And what better way to celebrate the first anniversary of this show that by having a versus special! Meaning that was totally planned, and it wasn't like we recorded it a month ago and Phil had to deal with a house of illness and baby conjunctivitis and has only just got round to the edit and by sheer luck ended up lining up with the posting of episode one. Anyway. Cam and Phil step into the ring and go one on one (or two on two, even) with Derek and Chris...


Prime Time Conquistabores: 2016 Review and World of Sport Special

They said it couldn't be done! Well, specifically Cameron said it couldn't be done but here it is: a podcast recorded on a Thursday and posted on a Sunday. And by that I mean three days later, not in the next season. Yep, 2017 kicks off with no regular podcast organised so instead find a quick stand in episode with Cam and Phil having a good old chat about 2016 and the good things that it had. Which would be just in wrestling as everything else was a bit shit. And then they finish off by...


Episode XV: WrestleMania V

After the unpleasantness of the last show, what better way to bring the Conquistaboys back together than by going back to their roots with a WWF pay per view from the golden era? Thats right, it's back to 1989 and Trump Plaza where Strike Force will explode! Wait, sorry, where the Mega Powers will explode! We're talking Monsoon and Ventura on the mics, Pre-Model Martel and way too many people without their proper music. It's perfect Conquistabores territory, assuming of course that there are...


Episode XIV: The Greatest Tag Team Challenge

Join us for quite possibly the most divisive Conquistabores Four Way Battle Royale of all time! This week, Cam, Euan, Phil and Geordie Al come together to pick who they believe to be the greatest tag team OF ALL TIME. Yep, it's a tag team special so expect arguments, political chicanery and what may well turn out to be the most shocking end to an episode of the Conquistabores ever. And I mean, ever. If you like the show (and you won't by the time you finish this one) please leave us a review...


Episode XIII: Survivor Series 1990

The Conquistabores return! Well, three of them do at least. But why have Cam, Phil and Geordie Al come back to Madison Square Podcast? To tear their way through Survivor Series 1990! Teams of five strive to survive then battle in the Grand Finale Battle of Survival! With teams like The Mercenaries and The Dream Team filled with such luminaries as Paul Roma and Tito Santana it should be a good one! Well, one third of the podcast thinks it'll be a good one but I'll leave who that is up to you...


Prime Time Conquistabores: TNA Impact 4th January 2010

Thanks to (another) scheduling SNAFU, Prime Time Conquistabores is back! And with Broken Matt Hardy all over social media (via drones, apparently) we thought it time to have a look at TNA. Specifically, what we think was the first step that led to the Final Deletion: Hulk Hogan coming to the six sided ring in 2010. So, Euan Cameron and Phil sit down (each taking two sides of the ring, clearly) and talk through this time in history when TNA really properly thought they could overtake WWE and...
