9/8/2022

It really is a good time to be a wrestling fan, whether or not you're fully plugged into the behind-the-scenes nonsense that's been going on. We break down the mess that is CM Punk, Tony Khan's mixed bag of leadership, THE face of AEW (it's...

A spin-off, a prequel, a sequel… only the very best with just the right amount of dirty. You know what to do… Better Call Saul! With Better Call Saul now joining Breaking Bad by sailing off into the television sunset, we decided to pop a cork on a bottle of Zafiro and reminisce over one of the greatest shows to ever be on TV.

UNT 137: Doctor Strange (2016)

5/1/2022
With the Multiverse of Madness on its way, we used the power of the Time Stone to go back and correct a mistake to finally review the MCU movie from 2016, Doctor Strange. Benedict Cumberbatch and Stephen Strange have since become a mainstay in the MCU, but this is where it all started. We covered sorcerers, sling rings, the difference between dimensions, realities and universes, as well as taking a look to the future to what the new Doctor Strange film might unlock.

462: Kayfabe Is Dead, But You Don’t Have to Piss On It

3/22/2022
We’re in that in-between space from AEW Revolution to WWE WrestleMania. AEW put on a heck of a show. WWE’s gonna do what they do. Overall, we’re still having fun, especially watching the likes of CM Punk, Bryan Danielson/Mox/Regal, Thunder Rosa, and Kevin Owens as they do their things. But with the fun, comes the real stuff too. We had to say goodbye to a childhood favorite in Scott Hall. And we saw a tragic accident occur with the beloved Big E (Langston.. we still put some respect on the...

UNT 136: The Batman

3/20/2022
Yet another comic book reboot has landed upon us, but is this one any good? Opinions are mixed, but we decided to dive cowl-first into The Batman. A new psychopathic version of The Riddler... an obsessive, detective Batman... non-Catwoman Selina Kyle and more flying rats that you can poke a Batarang at, this movie was so full of comic book lore, we spent almost the full runtime discussing it. So before you join the ‘ugly actors need roles too’ picket line, chill out at the Iceberg Lounge and...

UNT 135: Peacemaker

We discussed this aspect of John Cena’s new superhero career as well as falling into many of our usual tangents, including what exactly makes a butterfly a butterfly, how best to create an opening titles sequence for...

461: Big Seasoning is Coming for Your Meat

2/28/2022
On this week’s show, we focus a good chunk of time on breaking down this weekend’s stellar AEW Revolution card. Between that show and the big news about Ring of Honor being acquired by Tony Khan, there’s a LOT to speculate about. What will the championship scene look like in AEW? Who will the key power players be coming out of Revolution? What will become of ROH – do they operate as their own kind of thing, or do they become a developmental ground of sorts? Beyond that (and potentially...

UNT 134: The Book Of Boba Fett

2/20/2022
Come with us as we return to that galaxy far, far away and open up The Book of Boba Fett. Boba Fett has always held a special place in many Star Wars fans’ hearts, and rumors of his own live-action story has been around longer than the sandpeople have roamed the desert. So with Season One now concluded, we took a closer look at this legendary bounty hunter and his recent adventures. Fennec! Rancors! Runaway trains! Jedi! The Dark Saber! Thundercat! Cobb Vanth! Flashdance! And the live action...

One man’s Dream is another man’s Nightmare. Is Cody Rhodes leaving AEW? Is he heading to WWE? These questions have led to nothing but more questions, and have taken over pro wrestling fandom in the last week. One thing is for sure – all eyes are on the Rhodes family. Good for them. We’re back this week to talk about that, Keith Lee’s debut, the awesomeness that is DEFY Wrestling, and so much more!

UNT 133: Cobra Kai Season 4

2/7/2022
Season 4 of Cobra Kai has come and gone, so while we wait for certain bounty hunters and peacemakers to complete their seasons, we took a look at the most recent entry into everyone’s favorite karate saga. In a season marked by shades of gray, we pondered which new characters we found entertaining, which old rivalries may have become stale, and also dared to ask: does every character on this show need a redemption arc? Find out the answers and more as we return to the blue mats to strike...

2/1/2022
It’s been a long time, we shouldn’t have left you without a dope beat to step to. But for real, we’re back after a little bit of a hiatus, and we’ve got a lot to catch up on. From wrestle road trips to DC for AEW and LA for PWG, to the latest happenings in WWE, and the fun that is AEW. We break it all down, including Brian Kendrick’s fall from grace, the firing (???) of Shane McMahon, and (related to the last point) just how BAD a lot of the Royal Rumble was last weekend. Featuring: ‘The...

The MCU train just keeps on rolling, this time with another Disney+ series, Hawkeye. So grab your quiver of trick arrows and get ready to dive in… While we break in the New Year by taking a closer look at nobody’s favorite Avenger, we got a few pleasant surprises.

458: Winter Has Come!

12/25/2021
This episode was recorded on December 16, and published on a delay due to holiday travel. Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like for all of us to just take a moment and just bathe in the glory of Hangman vs Danielson. A 60-minute broadway. When was the last time you have seen that? We were left wanting more during the Winter is Coming episode of AEW Dynamite, despite the only ‘debut’ coming in the form of a hint at Brody King. In a way, we are sad but also happy for Kevin Owens with his re-signing...
