00:05:42
my friend.
00:05:43
I don't know if I should a man in a five foot two or the £269.
00:05:49
Um, you know, it's ah, if that's pure, solid muscle than you, I I came to be a horrible ah, killer here, but, um, our mikes weren't on.
00:06:05
So that entire awesome intro that I just gave you went by the wayside.
00:06:10
Folks went by the wayside and thank you more for pointing out the fact that apparently my mike turned off.
00:06:15
So let's let's perhaps let's do a reset on this.
00:06:22
So I'm gonna well, once again welcome everyone back into the show, because apparently you couldn't hear me before.
00:06:28
So this is a Friday addition.
00:06:31
Oh, full purse covered Grady alive.
00:06:32
And once again, I will start it with who could it be? Ah, you know what? You know, I'm incredibly disappointed.
00:06:51
There we go.
00:06:55
Um, and you know what? You know what, Mike? I'm just gonna pull the plug.
00:06:59
Yeah, you know, I'm gonna pull the plug on this right now.
00:07:02
Um, e I swear to God guys, everyone out there, Murph, especially anyone who's watching this was this was so much better on the first take.
00:07:11
And perhaps actually, um, it was even heard on the radio.
00:07:15
So? So maybe if you're listening to the radio stream, you were able to actually hear this wonderful introduction.
00:07:20
And I really hope that that was the case, because I I was very happy about it.
00:07:23
And I know I called Mike by surprise, but what a disastrous start to the morning.
00:07:29
But you know what? It's okay because, you know, again we always figure it out.
00:07:33
So, Mike, how we doing here on a Friday show? No one.
00:07:39
Okay, I'm doing all right.
00:07:41
I know.
00:07:42
You know, the way we talk about my $3 internet up here in Rhode Island, Boy, I'll tell you, it's unbelievable.
00:07:46
Not all kidding aside, this is the $3 production for Let's let's be I'm not gonna try the pond this off on the Internet.
00:07:53
This was this is my own faulty doing of Ah, just clearly not check.
00:07:58
Yeah, well, as Mark points out, clearly not as bad as Antonio Brown.
00:08:02
Start to the morning, but ah, it's not too far off, considering the implication or the cir***stances that surrounded.
00:08:09
I mean, I was I was so excited about this intro.
00:08:11
It's Royal Rumble Weekend.
00:08:13
So I figured we'd we, you know, throw a little bit of Royal Rumble Talkinto our day.
00:08:17
And what better way to start it than a fantastic count down? And it surprised introduction of my co host.
00:08:23
And yes, I did call him five foot two and 1/2 again.
00:08:26
And but But I said, Your £265 now, or £69 let's let's you know, the logistics of £265 that would probably like in me to, ah, you know, well, maybe a little bit taller.
00:08:40
But that would like a meeting like Danny DeVito is the penguin in Batman Returns.
00:08:43
And now that's that's just not flight accurate, my friend.
00:08:47
But no, all kidding aside, the intro loved it.
00:08:50
It was great and concept.
00:08:51
We will resurrect that.
00:08:52
I know that will resurrect that here on the ABC radio lion.
00:08:55
However, at this point, let's just roll on with the show, my friend.
00:08:59
We got a lot to talk about and not a lot of time to talk about it.
00:09:02
But you know what? When it comes, I will give you the kudos, my friend.
00:09:06
When it comes to tech and everything like that, this man is definitely is good as it gets.
00:09:10
This is not the norm, folks.
00:09:12
This is a brief break in the road.
00:09:14
But ah, it's Ah, it's all good.
00:09:16
And we're still coming at you today on a Friday because we love our listeners and we don't want to let you down.
00:09:21
Well, the good thing is, the good thing is, and and I'm I'm almost certain that this is true.
00:09:27
I think I got in on the radio recording.
00:09:29
So if you happen to be listening on full press radio not watching on SportsCastr, like a lot of you do, then you'd be fortunate enough to hear it.
00:09:36
And maybe maybe I can finagle away to, um, figure out how to play it by the time the show ends in 25 minutes.
00:09:44
So needless to say, needless to say, um, we're here to talk some sports.
00:09:50
We're going to talk some more a rumble.
00:09:51
And as as our friend Mark on ah, SportsCastr chat and if you're not joined and go ahead and join in, check it out.

00:10:39
So as our friend Murph alluded to in the chat room.
00:10:42
And if you're not in there joining Antonio Brown, we talked about this yesterday when the warrant was issued.
00:10:48
Antonio Brown has turned himself in for the AA battery charges.
00:10:59
Apparently, he wasn't about to pay what he owed for moving service is one not going a bunch of stuff from storage to from California to Hollywood, Florida Um, and he is currently sitting in jail and is set to have his bond hearing today.
00:11:14
Now the warrant had no bond on it.
00:11:17
Obviously, he's having a bond hearing, so we'll find out what is going to happen, whether or not he's going to get out or if he's going to stay in because, you know, surprise, surprise, His lawyer says he's innocent.
00:11:28
So, um am I Am I crazy to think that this situation has just ballooned into something that it's just gonna I mean, I don't I don't think people realize how serious of a situation this is and the ramifications of what could happen to Antonio Brown if if things don't go his way.
00:11:47
And I think this is a ah, you know just again another another notch in what's been incredibly or another chapter and what's been an incredibly weird and crazy story of the last 12 months? Yeah, it definitely has the feel of a very odd type story, and you don't know if a lot of the information coming out is accurate.
00:12:07
If it's embellished.
00:12:08
I mean, there's a lot on its face.
00:12:10
You're absolutely right from a criminal standpoint and from the charges standpoint that east facing this is serious situation.
00:12:17
These are serious charges.
00:12:18
This could land him and land him in prison for a significant amount of time.
00:12:22
Now, is it something that's gonna put him away for years and years? Probably not, but he may have to do some some time in prison as a result of that.
00:12:30
If, in fact, everything that has come out is accurate.
00:12:34
And I caution everyone to look at what everything is.
00:12:38
Look at the total package here, looking all of the facts and then make an informed decision.
00:12:43
So right now the thing that makes me a little raises my eyebrow a little bit is that the warrant had no bond on it.
00:12:50
And he does have a bond hearing today That is a little surprising.
00:12:53
Usually when that happens and there's no bond, usually a judge is not gonna give any type of leeway.
00:12:58
When it comes to that.
00:12:59
You have to wonder if maybe the standoff, maybe his attorneys were able to negotiate having a bond hearing at least giving in the sort of a hope to be able to do it.
00:13:13
I'm not a legal expert, so I don't know if if there is a no ah no bond Ah, warrant.
00:13:17
If it's standard practice for someone to to get a ah hearing in that cir***stance, if anybody's out there listening and wants to chime in, we would love to hear it that I don't know for absolute cer*****y.
00:13:29
But it's my understanding that if there's a no bond issued on the water, and that means no bond until until the other suspect is range and until you know, there's, ah, situations that happened there.
00:13:40
So this seems a little bit quick to me, but we'll see.
00:13:44
We'll see what happens.
00:13:45
The one thing that I know we spoke about yesterday here on the show, Ian, is that I'm glad that this did not escalate into something further and honestly, I never really believed it would.
00:13:54
But with the Antonio Brown situation, you don't know everything is gone.
00:13:58
You know, it's been just up and down.
00:14:00
You never really know for sure.
00:14:02
You you hoped that cooler heads would prevail like they did in this cir***stance and on there in Hollywood, Florida would not go in and you know the raid Antonio Brown's house or or look for him or forcibly get in to comply with the warrant that could have resulted in injuries that could have resulted in something a lot worse than what we had.
00:14:25
So we're glad to see that happen at least anyway.
00:14:28
And hopefully, hopefully this is the catalyst for Antonio.
00:14:32
Finally, get the help that he needs.
00:14:34
Maybe the wake up call if he needs and get himself back on the straight and narrow because there's still a part of me that believes there is a very good football player with a lot of contributions to make to a team if he can get himself right and he could get himself the help that he needs.
00:14:49
But ultimately that's gonna be on Antonio, and it's gonna be up to the the You know, the powers that be in the legal system in Florida to determine what his punishment, if any, will be on this, and we'll definitely continue to monitor it.
00:15:03
But this ended up working out relatively.
00:15:06
I mean, it's never a good thing when you have to see someone hauled off to jail.
00:15:10
But this could have ended worse, folks.
00:15:12
This could have been an uglier story than it already has been.
00:15:15
Yeah, and and and look even a couple months ago, I would have absolutely believed that he would eventually be back on the football field.
00:15:24
You know, once he got rid of all these situations that you know he's dealing with right now and kind of got himself right.
00:15:30
But it just it feels like, right now he's just torpedoing whatever career he may or may not have left.
00:15:36
And And look, this isn't This is a little bit different, um, considering you know his age, you know? Hell, I mean, at this point, by the time he steps on a football field again, he's gonna be pushing 33 years old and, you know, yeah, it's not old.
00:15:49
Trust me.
00:15:50
I I'm 33 I I'm definitely saying it's not over.
00:15:53
It's Yeah, it's different.
00:15:55
That's that.
00:15:56
Is that you feel the bumps and bruises and then strike a lot more. Yeah.
00:16:00
Then you know, I'm sorry.
00:16:01
I mean, to cut you off.
00:16:02
No, no, no.
00:16:03
I'm like you have obviously a farm or experience with advanced age that I do.
00:16:07
So I appreciate your expert opinion.
00:16:09
Yes.
00:16:10
Um, I had to get that in there, but in the morning.
00:16:14
Yeah.
00:16:15
Hey, you know that you get the more that I know.
00:16:17
Half hour purple.
00:16:18
Try me in on that.
00:16:19
He'll tell me.
00:16:20
You know, Mark, Mark was at the batting cages this morning.
00:16:22
I'm sure you know.
00:16:23
I mean, he won't admit it, you know? But he's out there.
00:16:25
He's out there slinging them around a swell, you know, swinging some swinging some bats out there.
00:16:29
Uh, we keep talking about Murph like this.
00:16:31
He's gonna come up here, and he's gonna clunk our heads together. Way.
00:16:38
Love you, man.
00:16:39
We absolutely love you.
00:16:40
We love you like an older brother.
00:16:42
Yeah, Much, much older.
00:16:43
11 a.
00:16:44
m.
00:16:45
Okay. All right, fair enough. He says 11. 11.
00:16:47
Okay, that's all right.
00:16:49
Yeah.
00:16:50
He must have had some late night batting cages and last night had to get some extra sleep.
00:16:53
But, look, you know, for Antonio, this is, you know, again, just another instance of his judgment, you know, being obviously in question and his ability to t make the right decisions.
00:17:06
And, you know, you know, he add in the fact, you know, obviously you say what you want about what he said about craft.
00:17:12
You know what other owners are gonna think about that how he treated the New Orleans Saints.
00:17:16
Work out what he did afterwards with the video going on all the way back to social media with the with the Steelers.
00:17:22
I mean, it's just I just I find it hard pressed to find a situation where he would would fit at this point.
00:17:29
Or at least, you know, again by the time who knows when he'll even be on the field? Because I can't imagine it will be next year.
00:17:35
Given the cir***stances.
00:17:37
I mean, you would imagine now, at the very least, with this current situation going on and him being in jail, yeah, he's He's probably going to get suspended out of this if he wasn't already.
00:17:47
So obviously, you you want the player, the person to get right and, um Okay.
00:17:53
All right.
00:17:54
So So, uh, Murph is working on a, uh, a cure for the Corona virus.
00:18:01
Yes. Yes.
00:18:02
You know, Corona, the most highly overrated beer known to man and far too many people.
00:18:08
Um hi.
00:18:09
Hold it. It's in such high regard.
00:18:11
So there is a problem, and I think Martha's is trying thio eradicate that.
00:18:16
So hats off to you, Mark.
00:18:17
I appreciate it.
00:18:20
He Ah.
00:18:21
So anyways, yes.
00:18:22
Oh, Antonio Brown, I imagine just will not play at the very least, not next season.
00:18:26
So you're talking about the season after and that's what I'm saying 33 years old and in all that.
00:18:31
So, um, it's unfortunate, but I I think at this point a lot, you know, it's hard not to see this coming considering Ah, considering you know, just this, You know, everything that's happened this past calendar year and then and then some.
00:18:46
So, um, we'll see.
00:18:47
We'll see.
00:18:49
Ah, as for as for the ah, incredible introduction that I know I gave and I'm like it's uncertain was heard on full price radio.
00:18:57
So for those, I appreciate Thea, you know, I'm sure you guys all loved it.
00:19:01
Um, I use that as a is an opportunity to bring up the fact that the Sunday No, it's not the Super Bowl, but it is of Royal Rumble.
00:19:13
Yes, that's right, Mike, One of my favorite yearly pay per views.
00:19:17
Yes, I know wrestling fans out there love the royal rumble.
00:19:20
I've attended a royal rumble before in my lifetime.
00:19:22
I went 2003.
00:19:25
It was ah Chris Benoit one.
00:19:29
All right.
00:19:30
Oh, God.
00:19:31
Now I see.
00:19:32
Now I'll look it up.
00:19:33
You know, it's been a long time.
00:19:35
Let's just put it this way Since 2003 looking you're talking? 17 years ago, I was still in high school.
00:19:40
So, um, I'll have to refresh my memory.
00:19:42
Exactly.
00:19:43
But I went to 2003 in in Boston.
00:19:45
It was a fantastic event.
00:19:46
I loved it.
00:19:47
Um, it was always an event I wanted to go to.
00:19:50
And I know you love the show, too, because, you know, again, we both have a very, ah rich history of wrestling knowledge.
00:19:57
I mean, it's one of the first things I really got into as a very young kids.
00:20:01
So, um, I enjoyed a lot of the old ones.
00:20:04
You know, the early that the late eighties, early nineties, one of my favorite.
00:20:08
Okay, my favorite.
00:20:11
And I'm gonna ask you the same thing.
00:20:12
So So think about your answer here.
00:20:14
Your favorite exit.
00:20:16
Now, I went I was thinking of a couple different things, like, you know, it was Are we gonna go dramatic here? Are we gonna go comical? And to me, there's there's no other way to go.
00:20:29
And you know, if I think you might know who I'm talking about And I'm not sure if he still technically holds Thea the shortest rumble appearance in WW history.
00:20:43
But ah, yes.
00:20:45
You know, I think e I don't think that record will ever be broken.
00:20:52
I really don't think anybody had time to break that record.
00:20:56
Bushwacker Luke, my friend you're referring to.
00:20:59
And he was thrown from one side of the ring.
00:21:01
It's two, the other by a belief it was by earthquake.
00:21:03
Yeah, you know, it was it was your He came.
00:21:07
Then he literally grabbed bushwacker, throw him over the top rope and in stride.
00:21:12
I guess not.
00:21:14
A lot of people give the bushwhackers credit for, you know, their coordination.
00:21:18
This was perfectly coordinated.
00:21:20
He went over the top rope literally landed, went right back into his bushwacker.
00:21:24
Ah, you know, stride or whatever you call it, right at the exit was perfect.
00:21:28
And then he walked right out doing the same thing that he did when he walked in.
00:21:32
That has to be the greatest rumble appearance of all time.
00:21:34
I don't care about you know, you can talk about, You know, Shawn Michaels going from one t 30 and winning.
00:21:41
And you know, having these guys, you know, just the amount of time that they last in the rubble.
00:21:46
To me, that that is, that's pure gold right there.
00:21:49
That moment will never be equaled.
00:21:51
Yeah, and I equate that to someone who takes a horrible spill that's drunk and then just somehow still manages to hold on to their Ah, they're Styrofoam cup of beer are there? So a couple of beer and it's still not spill and just get up and go, right, right about their day.
00:22:04
And then And that was just to me.
00:22:06
I it was to me, was one of my earliest memories of the war rumble on when I was it was a habit that was early, too.
00:22:11
I think it was one night I was gonna I was gonna say I think it's 92.
00:22:16
Um, if I'm not mistaken.
00:22:18
And, you know, back in the day, um, I had I had an uncle who had a giant, you know, those huge satellite dishes that it looked like there, you know, there aren't for a radio station in his backyard, up and made.
00:22:30
But anyway, so he get all the paper views for, you know, cheap price.
00:22:35
And I hope I'm not think there's a statute of limitations are just a don't give a f about it anymore going around.
00:22:42
So I'm gonna say it anyways.
00:22:43
But he had a giant satellite dish that got all these pay per view, so I would always go over and he would have boxes of VHS tapes of all the paper views, and that's what I'd watch.
00:22:51
I above the war, Aramboles and you at the time, it was the in your house and, you know, all those style of pay per views and that was that was certainly one of my favorite moments.
00:22:59
And look, I've had a ton of them at the Royal Rumble.
00:23:02
Um, personally, you know, things.
00:23:04
Obviously you already mentioned one of them, and this wasn't in a royal rumble match.
00:23:08
I'm sorry.
00:23:09
It was in the Royal Rumble match, but Shawn Michaels starting the royal rumble and going the distance, and then how could we forget? How could we forget the, um, epic epic and I and I say this seriously.
00:23:21
The epic performance of one Vincent Kennedy McMahon.
00:23:30
Yeah, that's right.
00:23:31
No one had any chance against Vince McMahon in the Royal right? No one had any chance against Vince and Vince CIA.
00:23:37
Vince's The Boston's is gonna call the shots and you know a good credit, Vince, though.
00:23:41
I mean, that's took his bum seat indefinitely.
00:23:43
Got in there.
00:23:44
He was staring at us. He wasn't afraid.
00:23:46
Todo Yeah, I mean, but you talk about, you know, you talk about royal rumbles.
00:23:52
Yeah, it was always my pay per view.
00:23:54
Growing up, the rumble was definitely I too attended a rumble way back in the day.
00:23:58
At the age of 13 I attended Royal Rumble 94 that is the epic Royal rumble where the undertaker supposedly died in a cow.
00:24:08
I believes that this up in the Providence Civic Center, which is now called the Dunkin Donuts Center.
00:24:15
And on TV, I guess they said it looked amazing in person.
00:24:20
Not so much you could see him being ripped.
00:24:23
It it really was.
00:24:25
You could see the strings live, folks.
00:24:27
That wasn't as maybe not maybe the seats that I had, but it just it wasn't as impressive as I guess.
00:24:32
It looked on television.
00:24:34
But yeah, that was That was interesting.
00:24:36
That was the first big pay per view that came to Providence when I was a kid.
00:24:39
Ah, so it was definitely exciting.
00:24:42
I went to that match with my dad, and that was That was fun.
00:24:44
That was really enjoyed that.
00:24:45
But my all time royal rumble favorite memory is probably going to be way backed in 1992.
00:24:51
Ric Flair winning the world heavyweight title.
00:24:54
Yeah, it was the first time that the title was ever up for grabs in the Royal Rumble and was Ric Flair Israel debut.
00:25:01
I think if you want to talk about what really put him on the map and w w e, that was it, it was just, you know, for if anybody wants to go back and watch that Royal rumble match, it was a great one.
00:25:11
I think Flare puts on one of the best performances he's ever put on in his career.
00:25:15
Really just great.
00:25:16
The commentary by Body heat and alone is just hilarious, really, from start to finish, it just just tremendous he was.
00:25:24
He was awesome in that he and gorilla Monsoon were definitely at their peak on that one.
00:25:28
Then, of course, where it comes out on top and wins the title.
00:25:32
That that's still my favorite royal rumble memory always will be.
00:25:34
Well, it's it's It's funny that Ah, you know that you brought up the undertaker dying because I would use it in 94.
00:25:40
So I was, you know, I was 78 years old, you know, at the time, Uh, you know, if it was early 94 So I was seven.
00:25:46
I was You know, I turned eight later that year, but, um, I absolutely believe that that was true s Oh, and look, I mean again, you know, at that age feel, you know, your your imagination is still a little bit Ah, you know, a little bit open to do certain things.
00:26:02
And I was absolutely convinced the undertaker died.
00:26:04
Now again, maybe if I had seen it.
00:26:06
And again, you're a little bit older than me.
00:26:08
So I think that there was a little bit more reason in your thought process.
00:26:12
When it comes to this, it's like, Wait a minute, they can't have they can't, you know, purposely, uh, kill someone on my TV.
00:26:20
I mean, obviously you know, I'm gonna bring it up, but the own heart situation, That's no joking matter.
00:26:24
But, uh, you know, obviously for storyline purposes, you know, I'm sure you were thinking, Okay, this can't possibly be legit.
00:26:30
But, you know, seeing the strings, I'm sure helped as well, so But I absolutely did believe that at the time that you know Hey and see.
00:26:39
There you go.
00:26:40
Mark even remembers Gorilla Monsoon.
00:26:42
I think they went toe together.
00:26:44
Absolutely.
00:26:45
Monsoon and Dean.
00:26:46
And we're well back in the day.
00:26:47
I mean, gorilla was he was He was the guy.
00:26:49
I am a killer, Kowalski.
00:26:51
And this is old school.
00:26:54
Yep.
00:26:55
Bobo Brazil.
00:26:56
I mean, you got a lot of these old time, you know, wrestlers that were they laid the groundwork.
00:27:00
They set the tone and eventually led into Andre the Giant Roddy Piper, all Cogan.
00:27:04
And then, naturally, after Hulk, it really it took off in wrestling Winkle Actiq after that.
00:27:09
But those are the guys.
00:27:10
Those theory jin a tres So, uh, Romo's always fun.
00:27:13
I'm sure it will be.
00:27:14
I'm sure a lot of people are going to get together and watch that this weekend it's It's nice. How the W W E.
00:27:19
Does that.
00:27:20
They put it opposite the Pro Bowl because obviously there's no football this weekend.
00:27:23
Yes, I know, I said Pro Bowl.
00:27:24
There is no football.
00:27:25
This year's dodgeball events? Yes, exactly.
00:27:29
There's yet you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball and Patrick Hoolahan will be coaching in.
00:27:33
That game is, well late.
00:27:34
Great patches, a little hand.
00:27:35
But in any case, yeah, the rumble is it does it breaks up between championship weekend in the Super Bowl, and W does a smart thing there as well, so they realize they're not going to let a compete.
00:27:47
And I'm sure they were gonna be a lot of XFL references this weekend.
00:27:50
You know, Vince says he's trying to keep the two brands separate, and he's not gonna melt them together like he did the last time.
00:27:55
And Jesse Ventura, you know, J R.
00:27:58
Come on the first national cheerleading thing, the ring announcer come out and announce the players on the field, but they're still gonna mention it, and there's gonna be some cross promotion.
00:28:11
So, yeah, keep a sharp eye on that because the XFL is not too far away, folks? No, no, Just a couple weeks.
00:28:17
And, uh, I I looked it up, so I had to refresh my memory.
00:28:20
So I was kind of right.
00:28:21
So it was current angle at the Royal Rumble.
00:28:24
I went to defeated Chris Ben Wa for the W W E championship.
00:28:28
So that's what it was.
00:28:29
I was I was a little confused cause I also went to WrestleMania the following year where, um, Eddie Guerrero won the world championship.
00:28:36
There's that moment with Ben wa, but, you know, that's like we mentioned.
00:28:40
Ah, you know, actually, ironically, I can't remember was on this show if it was all locked on, but we brought up Chris Benoit in relationship.
00:28:47
So, you know. Yeah.
00:28:49
So there was There was a recent talk about him, but that royal rumble Brock Lesner defeated the undertaker on 30 man, you know, it was it was good.
00:28:57
It was a fun event to go to.
00:28:58
Obviously, you know, if if I was going to sit there and pick out obviously my favorite war warm all events, I, you know, I would not probably picked the one I went to is one of my favorites, but it was still fun to experience that cause, you know, when I think about it like I was able to go to Ah, rumble of WrestleMania Summer Slam.
00:29:15
Er no survivor.
00:29:16
Siri's Oh, wait.
00:29:17
Did I Yeah, I think so.
00:29:19
My guys see this, that this is bad.
00:29:20
This this is what happens.
00:29:21
You know, when I was younger, when I was young and I used to poke fun at me like, how do you not remember the ones you go to know? I'm sitting here thinking like I think I went to Survivor Siri's.
00:29:29
I can't.
00:29:30
Well, see, here's the deal I used to go to, like, every show that ever, um, you know, was in the area whether it was providence, whether is a twister or rooster or Boston.
00:29:39
So, um, you know, in blow.
00:29:41
Yeah. I go back a ways with survivors.
00:29:43
Siri's.
00:29:44
I think 93 was the one that I went to.
00:29:45
That was that the old Boston Garden.
00:29:47
This was right before the garden got torn down.
00:29:49
And it was Thea the infamous ah, razor Ramon.
00:29:54
And no.
00:29:55
And then he had much he was supposed to have Kurt handing Mr Perfect, but actually Kurt was suspended for, I don't know some sort of drug violation or whatever, and he ended up having the macho man is his tag team partner and, infamously, Scott Hall. Grab the microphone.
00:30:09
And, you know, said my partner, Perfect.
00:30:12
So really no going bigger tonight.
00:30:14
And I still remember that and thought that was like a funniest thing I ever heard in my life.
00:30:18
And that was funny to me for like, 10 years.
00:30:20
I'll be honest, folks, it's still funny to me.
00:30:22
I say, Oh, yeah, go on then.
00:30:23
So it's always good.
00:30:25
Ah, but yeah, that was That was Survivor series at the Boston Garden.
00:30:29
I really I'll be honest.
00:30:30
I really can't remember the year right now off that, but it was a pretty good one.
00:30:35
Featured Bret Harte verses Owen Hart match, which was, you know, that I get a chance to see those two brothers go go head on head because they worked so well in the ring together.
00:30:43
You want to talk about technically savvy and having a comfort level with your opponent.
00:30:47
Those two guys put on a great show.
00:30:49
The only two that I think put on a better show.
00:30:51
Then Brett knowing when they were in the ring where Bretton Shawn Michaels, say what you will about the rivalry.
00:30:56
But those two guys know each other so well in terms of what they could do and how they could do it.
00:31:02
And it was just It was amazing.
00:31:03
Those two guys put on a great show.
00:31:05
Britain and Kurt heading and Mr Perfect always put on a good show as well.
00:31:09
Coming. This tells me I'm gonna have to tell Vincent.
00:31:11
I was just I was just thinking about that because I'm like, I'm sitting here thinking like, yeah, you know, And Admittedly so I don't, um, keep up is often, as I used to, obviously, you know, e I mean, just I don't have enough time in the day to, ah, you know, be able t spend, you know, doing this and everything else.
00:31:31
But then that's why I love reading every gums, work over at a PC.
00:31:35
Wrestling, you know, see, keeps me up to date with everything but I So that was a tremendous shot.
00:31:40
Our squad, they're really, really does great stuff, you know? So I live a lot in the yesteryear of wrestling, and obviously the time frame that I watch was, you know, early nineties Thio, mid two thousands, you know, And that was that was my error of wrestling, which which encompassed quite a bit, which had Shawn Michaels undertaker, all those guys.
00:31:58
And, ah, a lot of really good royal room of memories.
00:32:00
And I'll certainly probably be jumping through and watching a few of those.
00:32:03
Or at least going on YouTube and watching some great moments because I'm sure there were so many that I just I didn't think of, um, in this whole this whole discussion.
00:32:12
Plus, you know, just the fact that we had such a short show today we have to kind of cram everything in here.
00:32:16
So that's true, but yeah, look another one real quick that I loved.
00:32:21
You know, I was always a big **** Foley fan, and I loved when he came in as all three.
00:32:27
You know, **** Foot, He was, you know, mankind.
00:32:29
Cactus. Yes, he was offering.
00:32:32
Yeah, that's right.
00:32:33
Cactus Jack, cactus Jack and do love it.
00:32:36
Still managed to lose somehow, But, hey, you know, that's something that was kind of his thing, you know? But you know what that was this thing.
00:32:43
And you know what? Nobody did it better than fully.
00:32:45
I was actually in Worcester when he won the WWF title.
00:32:49
Wow, I can tell you, that is one of I will say this with all due respect to ****, and he got a big ovation that night.
00:32:55
Everybody was happy for him.
00:32:57
But that loudest pop I have ever heard in my entire life at a wrestling event was won Austin.
00:33:04
Oh, yeah. Announced.
00:33:05
And he wasn't supposed to be there that night.
00:33:07
They made it, even had signs up saying, Please do not, you know, get angry, but stone cold.
00:33:12
Steve Austin will not be here tonight because this is the height of Boston's famous was as as big of a superstar and wrestling as you could get.
00:33:20
Austin was off the charts popular, and fans were really upset in the minute that glass broke.
00:33:24
I thought the play I thought that the roof of the Worcester Centrum was literally gonna blow off.
00:33:29
I've never felt that before He was hell. The building's shaking.
00:33:32
It was that's out loud.
00:33:33
It waas was that the ah W c w ruin because that wasn't a lie that was That was Tony Shivani.
00:33:40
Yeah.
00:33:41
Yeah, that'll put Butts in the seats.
00:33:42
I was one of those butts that was in the C.
00:33:44
I was at the event that night.
00:33:46
It was, you know, storm outside and Worcester. It's funny.
00:33:49
Remember these things, But, yeah, it was Bella back in the teenage days.
00:33:52
That was That was great stuff.
00:33:54
And yeah, they did not get much better than that, folks seeing that.
00:33:58
And that was in a great event from start to finish.
00:34:00
I think everybody in W W was at their peak at that moment.
00:34:03
That really Olympique WW attitude When it comes to that rivalry between two companies, no one really thought about it at the time.
00:34:10
But that was that was a big moment, because again, that whole idea backfired because, you know, that's the thing.
00:34:16
Like **** full, you know, mankind.
00:34:17
He was very much beloved.
00:34:19
So when people heard the result of it like a way I want to see this.
00:34:22
So you know what people did They all tuned, you know, Monday.
00:34:26
Yeah.
00:34:27
So, uh, it's funny.
00:34:28
And and like I said, I mean little like you said the little things that you remember.
00:34:31
And then here I am thinking, like, what did I have for breakfast yesterday? You know, but it's true.
00:34:37
I can't even remember what I had this morning, but that Yeah, no, I I got your Steve.
00:34:42
Um, so, uh, no.
00:34:45
Mike. Mike. Sorry.
00:34:46
I forget sometimes.
00:34:47
Um, no, I always think of that.
00:34:49
Ah, Ron Swanson quote.
00:34:50
He's like, sometimes I call people by the wrong name on purpose, You know, when they start to get a little too chummy and give me what I've got to start doing that.
00:34:59
So, without further to thank you, everyone.
00:35:01
Thank you. Ah Scott.
00:35:03

00:05:42
my friend.
00:05:43
I don't know if I should a man in a five foot two or the £269.
00:05:49
Um, you know, it's ah, if that's pure, solid muscle than you, I I came to be a horrible ah, killer here, but, um, our mikes weren't on.
00:06:05
So that entire awesome intro that I just gave you went by the wayside.
00:06:10
Folks went by the wayside and thank you more for pointing out the fact that apparently my mike turned off.
00:06:15
So let's let's perhaps let's do a reset on this.
00:06:22
So I'm gonna well, once again welcome everyone back into the show, because apparently you couldn't hear me before.
00:06:28
So this is a Friday addition.
00:06:31
Oh, full purse covered Grady alive.
00:06:32
And once again, I will start it with who could it be? Ah, you know what? You know, I'm incredibly disappointed.
00:06:51
There we go.
00:06:55
Um, and you know what? You know what, Mike? I'm just gonna pull the plug.
00:06:59
Yeah, you know, I'm gonna pull the plug on this right now.
00:07:02
Um, e I swear to God guys, everyone out there, Murph, especially anyone who's watching this was this was so much better on the first take.
00:07:11
And perhaps actually, um, it was even heard on the radio.
00:07:15
So? So maybe if you're listening to the radio stream, you were able to actually hear this wonderful introduction.
00:07:20
And I really hope that that was the case, because I I was very happy about it.
00:07:23
And I know I called Mike by surprise, but what a disastrous start to the morning.
00:07:29
But you know what? It's okay because, you know, again we always figure it out.
00:07:33
So, Mike, how we doing here on a Friday show? No one.
00:07:39
Okay, I'm doing all right.
00:07:41
I know.
00:07:42
You know, the way we talk about my $3 internet up here in Rhode Island, Boy, I'll tell you, it's unbelievable.
00:07:46
Not all kidding aside, this is the $3 production for Let's let's be I'm not gonna try the pond this off on the Internet.
00:07:53
This was this is my own faulty doing of Ah, just clearly not check.
00:07:58
Yeah, well, as Mark points out, clearly not as bad as Antonio Brown.
00:08:02
Start to the morning, but ah, it's not too far off, considering the implication or the cir***stances that surrounded.
00:08:09
I mean, I was I was so excited about this intro.
00:08:11
It's Royal Rumble Weekend.
00:08:13
So I figured we'd we, you know, throw a little bit of Royal Rumble Talkinto our day.
00:08:17
And what better way to start it than a fantastic count down? And it surprised introduction of my co host.
00:08:23
And yes, I did call him five foot two and 1/2 again.
00:08:26
And but But I said, Your £265 now, or £69 let's let's you know, the logistics of £265 that would probably like in me to, ah, you know, well, maybe a little bit taller.
00:08:40
But that would like a meeting like Danny DeVito is the penguin in Batman Returns.
00:08:43
And now that's that's just not flight accurate, my friend.
00:08:47
But no, all kidding aside, the intro loved it.
00:08:50
It was great and concept.
00:08:51
We will resurrect that.
00:08:52
I know that will resurrect that here on the ABC radio lion.
00:08:55
However, at this point, let's just roll on with the show, my friend.
00:08:59
We got a lot to talk about and not a lot of time to talk about it.
00:09:02
But you know what? When it comes, I will give you the kudos, my friend.
00:09:06
When it comes to tech and everything like that, this man is definitely is good as it gets.
00:09:10
This is not the norm, folks.
00:09:12
This is a brief break in the road.
00:09:14
But ah, it's Ah, it's all good.
00:09:16
And we're still coming at you today on a Friday because we love our listeners and we don't want to let you down.
00:09:21
Well, the good thing is, the good thing is, and and I'm I'm almost certain that this is true.
00:09:27
I think I got in on the radio recording.
00:09:29
So if you happen to be listening on full press radio not watching on SportsCastr, like a lot of you do, then you'd be fortunate enough to hear it.
00:09:36
And maybe maybe I can finagle away to, um, figure out how to play it by the time the show ends in 25 minutes.

00:10:39
So as our friend Murph alluded to in the chat room.
00:10:42
And if you're not in there joining Antonio Brown, we talked about this yesterday when the warrant was issued.
00:10:48
Antonio Brown has turned himself in for the AA battery charges.
00:10:59
Apparently, he wasn't about to pay what he owed for moving service is one not going a bunch of stuff from storage to from California to Hollywood, Florida Um, and he is currently sitting in jail and is set to have his bond hearing today.
00:11:14
Now the warrant had no bond on it.
00:11:17
Obviously, he's having a bond hearing, so we'll find out what is going to happen, whether or not he's going to get out or if he's going to stay in because, you know, surprise, surprise, His lawyer says he's innocent.
00:11:28
So, um am I Am I crazy to think that this situation has just ballooned into something that it's just gonna I mean, I don't I don't think people realize how serious of a situation this is and the ramifications of what could happen to Antonio Brown if if things don't go his way.
00:11:47
And I think this is a ah, you know just again another another notch in what's been incredibly or another chapter and what's been an incredibly weird and crazy story of the last 12 months? Yeah, it definitely has the feel of a very odd type story, and you don't know if a lot of the information coming out is accurate.
00:12:07
If it's embellished.
00:12:08
I mean, there's a lot on its face.
00:12:10
You're absolutely right from a criminal standpoint and from the charges standpoint that east facing this is serious situation.
00:12:17
These are serious charges.
00:12:18
This could land him and land him in prison for a significant amount of time.
00:12:22
Now, is it something that's gonna put him away for years and years? Probably not, but he may have to do some some time in prison as a result of that.
00:12:30
If, in fact, everything that has come out is accurate.
00:12:34
And I caution everyone to look at what everything is.
00:12:38
Look at the total package here, looking all of the facts and then make an informed decision.
00:12:43
So right now the thing that makes me a little raises my eyebrow a little bit is that the warrant had no bond on it.
00:12:50
And he does have a bond hearing today That is a little surprising.
00:12:53
Usually when that happens and there's no bond, usually a judge is not gonna give any type of leeway.
00:12:58
When it comes to that.
00:12:59
You have to wonder if maybe the standoff, maybe his attorneys were able to negotiate having a bond hearing at least giving in the sort of a hope to be able to do it.
00:13:13
I'm not a legal expert, so I don't know if if there is a no ah no bond Ah, warrant.
00:13:17
If it's standard practice for someone to to get a ah hearing in that cir***stance, if anybody's out there listening and wants to chime in, we would love to hear it that I don't know for absolute cer*****y.
00:13:29
But it's my understanding that if there's a no bond issued on the water, and that means no bond until until the other suspect is range and until you know, there's, ah, situations that happened there.
00:13:40
So this seems a little bit quick to me, but we'll see.
00:13:44
We'll see what happens.
00:13:45
The one thing that I know we spoke about yesterday here on the show, Ian, is that I'm glad that this did not escalate into something further and honestly, I never really believed it would.
00:13:54
But with the Antonio Brown situation, you don't know everything is gone.
00:13:58
You know, it's been just up and down.
00:14:00
You never really know for sure.
00:14:02
You you hoped that cooler heads would prevail like they did in this cir***stance and on there in Hollywood, Florida would not go in and you know the raid Antonio Brown's house or or look for him or forcibly get in to comply with the warrant that could have resulted in injuries that could have resulted in something a lot worse than what we had.
00:14:25
So we're glad to see that happen at least anyway.
00:14:28
And hopefully, hopefully this is the catalyst for Antonio.
00:14:32
Finally, get the help that he needs.
00:14:34
Maybe the wake up call if he needs and get himself back on the straight and narrow because there's still a part of me that believes there is a very good football player with a lot of contributions to make to a team if he can get himself right and he could get himself the help that he needs.
00:14:49
But ultimately that's gonna be on Antonio, and it's gonna be up to the the You know, the powers that be in the legal system in Florida to determine what his punishment, if any, will be on this, and we'll definitely continue to monitor it.
00:15:03
But this ended up working out relatively.
00:15:06
I mean, it's never a good thing when you have to see someone hauled off to jail.
00:15:10
But this could have ended worse, folks.
00:15:12
This could have been an uglier story than it already has been.
00:15:15
Yeah, and and and look even a couple months ago, I would have absolutely believed that he would eventually be back on the football field.
00:15:24
You know, once he got rid of all these situations that you know he's dealing with right now and kind of got himself right.
00:15:30
But it just it feels like, right now he's just torpedoing whatever career he may or may not have left.
00:15:36
And And look, this isn't This is a little bit different, um, considering you know his age, you know? Hell, I mean, at this point, by the time he steps on a football field again, he's gonna be pushing 33 years old and, you know, yeah, it's not old.
00:15:49
Trust me.
00:15:50
I I'm 33 I I'm definitely saying it's not over.
00:15:53
It's Yeah, it's different.
00:15:55
That's that.
00:15:56
Is that you feel the bumps and bruises and then strike a lot more. Yeah.
00:16:00
Then you know, I'm sorry.
00:16:01
I mean, to cut you off.
00:16:02
No, no, no.
00:16:03
I'm like you have obviously a farm or experience with advanced age that I do.
00:16:07
So I appreciate your expert opinion.
00:16:09
Yes.
00:16:10
Um, I had to get that in there, but in the morning.
00:16:14
Yeah.
00:16:15
Hey, you know that you get the more that I know.
00:16:17
Half hour purple.
00:16:18
Try me in on that.
00:16:19
He'll tell me.
00:16:20
You know, Mark, Mark was at the batting cages this morning.
00:16:22
I'm sure you know.
00:16:23
I mean, he won't admit it, you know? But he's out there.
00:16:25
He's out there slinging them around a swell, you know, swinging some swinging some bats out there.
00:16:29
Uh, we keep talking about Murph like this.
00:16:31
He's gonna come up here, and he's gonna clunk our heads together. Way.
00:16:38
Love you, man.
00:16:39
We absolutely love you.
00:16:40
We love you like an older brother.
00:16:42
Yeah, Much, much older.
00:16:43
11 a.
00:16:44
m.
00:16:45
Okay. All right, fair enough. He says 11. 11.
00:16:47
Okay, that's all right.
00:16:49
Yeah.
00:16:50
He must have had some late night batting cages and last night had to get some extra sleep.
00:16:53
But, look, you know, for Antonio, this is, you know, again, just another instance of his judgment, you know, being obviously in question and his ability to t make the right decisions.
00:17:06
And, you know, you know, he add in the fact, you know, obviously you say what you want about what he said about craft.
00:17:12
You know what other owners are gonna think about that how he treated the New Orleans Saints.
00:17:16
Work out what he did afterwards with the video going on all the way back to social media with the with the Steelers.
00:17:22
I mean, it's just I just I find it hard pressed to find a situation where he would would fit at this point.
00:17:29
Or at least, you know, again by the time who knows when he'll even be on the field? Because I can't imagine it will be next year.
00:17:35
Given the cir***stances.
00:17:37
I mean, you would imagine now, at the very least, with this current situation going on and him being in jail, yeah, he's He's probably going to get suspended out of this if he wasn't already.
00:17:47
So obviously, you you want the player, the person to get right and, um Okay.
00:17:53
All right.
00:17:54
So So, uh, Murph is working on a, uh, a cure for the Corona virus.
00:18:01
Yes. Yes.
00:18:02
You know, Corona, the most highly overrated beer known to man and far too many people.
00:18:08
Um hi.
00:18:09
Hold it. It's in such high regard.
00:18:11
So there is a problem, and I think Martha's is trying thio eradicate that.
00:18:16
So hats off to you, Mark.
00:18:17
I appreciate it.
00:18:20
He Ah.
00:18:21
So anyways, yes.
00:18:22
Oh, Antonio Brown, I imagine just will not play at the very least, not next season.
00:18:26
So you're talking about the season after and that's what I'm saying 33 years old and in all that.
00:18:31
So, um, it's unfortunate, but I I think at this point a lot, you know, it's hard not to see this coming considering Ah, considering you know, just this, You know, everything that's happened this past calendar year and then and then some.
00:18:46
So, um, we'll see.
00:18:47
We'll see.
00:18:49
Ah, as for as for the ah, incredible introduction that I know I gave and I'm like it's uncertain was heard on full price radio.
00:18:57
So for those, I appreciate Thea, you know, I'm sure you guys all loved it.
00:19:01
Um, I use that as a is an opportunity to bring up the fact that the Sunday No, it's not the Super Bowl, but it is of Royal Rumble.
00:19:13
Yes, that's right, Mike, One of my favorite yearly pay per views.
00:19:17
Yes, I know wrestling fans out there love the royal rumble.
00:19:20
I've attended a royal rumble before in my lifetime.
00:19:22
I went 2003.
00:19:25
It was ah Chris Benoit one.
00:19:29
All right.
00:19:30
Oh, God.
00:19:31
Now I see.
00:19:32
Now I'll look it up.
00:19:33
You know, it's been a long time.
00:19:35
Let's just put it this way Since 2003 looking you're talking? 17 years ago, I was still in high school.
00:19:40
So, um, I'll have to refresh my memory.
00:19:42
Exactly.
00:19:43
But I went to 2003 in in Boston.
00:19:45
It was a fantastic event.
00:19:46
I loved it.
00:19:47
Um, it was always an event I wanted to go to.
00:19:50
And I know you love the show, too, because, you know, again, we both have a very, ah rich history of wrestling knowledge.
00:19:57
I mean, it's one of the first things I really got into as a very young kids.
00:20:01
So, um, I enjoyed a lot of the old ones.
00:20:04
You know, the early that the late eighties, early nineties, one of my favorite.
00:20:08
Okay, my favorite.
00:20:11
And I'm gonna ask you the same thing.
00:20:12
So So think about your answer here.
00:20:14
Your favorite exit.
00:20:16
Now, I went I was thinking of a couple different things, like, you know, it was Are we gonna go dramatic here? Are we gonna go comical? And to me, there's there's no other way to go.
00:20:29
And you know, if I think you might know who I'm talking about And I'm not sure if he still technically holds Thea the shortest rumble appearance in WW history.
00:20:43
But ah, yes.
00:20:45
You know, I think e I don't think that record will ever be broken.
00:20:52
I really don't think anybody had time to break that record.
00:20:56
Bushwacker Luke, my friend you're referring to.
00:20:59
And he was thrown from one side of the ring.
00:21:01
It's two, the other by a belief it was by earthquake.
00:21:03
Yeah, you know, it was it was your He came.
00:21:07
Then he literally grabbed bushwacker, throw him over the top rope and in stride.
00:21:12
I guess not.
00:21:14
A lot of people give the bushwhackers credit for, you know, their coordination.
00:21:18
This was perfectly coordinated.
00:21:20
He went over the top rope literally landed, went right back into his bushwacker.
00:21:24
Ah, you know, stride or whatever you call it, right at the exit was perfect.
00:21:28
And then he walked right out doing the same thing that he did when he walked in.
00:21:32
That has to be the greatest rumble appearance of all time.
00:21:34
I don't care about you know, you can talk about, You know, Shawn Michaels going from one t 30 and winning.
00:21:41
And you know, having these guys, you know, just the amount of time that they last in the rubble.
00:21:46
To me, that that is, that's pure gold right there.
00:21:49
That moment will never be equaled.
00:21:51
Yeah, and I equate that to someone who takes a horrible spill that's drunk and then just somehow still manages to hold on to their Ah, they're Styrofoam cup of beer are there? So a couple of beer and it's still not spill and just get up and go, right, right about their day.
00:22:04
And then And that was just to me.
00:22:06
I it was to me, was one of my earliest memories of the war rumble on when I was it was a habit that was early, too.
00:22:11
I think it was one night I was gonna I was gonna say I think it's 92.
00:22:16
Um, if I'm not mistaken.
00:22:18
And, you know, back in the day, um, I had I had an uncle who had a giant, you know, those huge satellite dishes that it looked like there, you know, there aren't for a radio station in his backyard, up and made.
00:22:30
But anyway, so he get all the paper views for, you know, cheap price.
00:22:35
And I hope I'm not think there's a statute of limitations are just a don't give a f about it anymore going around.
00:22:42
So I'm gonna say it anyways.
00:22:43
But he had a giant satellite dish that got all these pay per view, so I would always go over and he would have boxes of VHS tapes of all the paper views, and that's what I'd watch.
00:22:51
I above the war, Aramboles and you at the time, it was the in your house and, you know, all those style of pay per views and that was that was certainly one of my favorite moments.
00:22:59
And look, I've had a ton of them at the Royal Rumble.
00:23:02
Um, personally, you know, things.
00:23:04
Obviously you already mentioned one of them, and this wasn't in a royal rumble match.
00:23:08
I'm sorry.
00:23:09
It was in the Royal Rumble match, but Shawn Michaels starting the royal rumble and going the distance, and then how could we forget? How could we forget the, um, epic epic and I and I say this seriously.
00:23:21
The epic performance of one Vincent Kennedy McMahon.
00:23:30
Yeah, that's right.
00:23:31
No one had any chance against Vince McMahon in the Royal right? No one had any chance against Vince and Vince CIA.
00:23:37
Vince's The Boston's is gonna call the shots and you know a good credit, Vince, though.
00:23:41
I mean, that's took his bum seat indefinitely.
00:23:43
Got in there.
00:23:44
He was staring at us. He wasn't afraid.
00:23:46
Todo Yeah, I mean, but you talk about, you know, you talk about royal rumbles.
00:23:52
Yeah, it was always my pay per view.
00:23:54
Growing up, the rumble was definitely I too attended a rumble way back in the day.
00:23:58
At the age of 13 I attended Royal Rumble 94 that is the epic Royal rumble where the undertaker supposedly died in a cow.
00:24:08
I believes that this up in the Providence Civic Center, which is now called the Dunkin Donuts Center.
00:24:15
And on TV, I guess they said it looked amazing in person.
00:24:20
Not so much you could see him being ripped.
00:24:23
It it really was.
00:24:25
You could see the strings live, folks.
00:24:27
That wasn't as maybe not maybe the seats that I had, but it just it wasn't as impressive as I guess.
00:24:32
It looked on television.
00:24:34
But yeah, that was That was interesting.
00:24:36
That was the first big pay per view that came to Providence when I was a kid.
00:24:39
Ah, so it was definitely exciting.
00:24:42
I went to that match with my dad, and that was That was fun.
00:24:44
That was really enjoyed that.
00:24:45
But my all time royal rumble favorite memory is probably going to be way backed in 1992.
00:24:51
Ric Flair winning the world heavyweight title.
00:24:54
Yeah, it was the first time that the title was ever up for grabs in the Royal Rumble and was Ric Flair Israel debut.
00:25:01
I think if you want to talk about what really put him on the map and w w e, that was it, it was just, you know, for if anybody wants to go back and watch that Royal rumble match, it was a great one.
00:25:11
I think Flare puts on one of the best performances he's ever put on in his career.
00:25:15
Really just great.
00:25:16
The commentary by Body heat and alone is just hilarious, really, from start to finish, it just just tremendous he was.
00:25:24
He was awesome in that he and gorilla Monsoon were definitely at their peak on that one.
00:25:28
Then, of course, where it comes out on top and wins the title.
00:25:32
That that's still my favorite royal rumble memory always will be.
00:25:34
Well, it's it's It's funny that Ah, you know that you brought up the undertaker dying because I would use it in 94.
00:25:40
So I was, you know, I was 78 years old, you know, at the time, Uh, you know, if it was early 94 So I was seven.
00:25:46
I was You know, I turned eight later that year, but, um, I absolutely believe that that was true s Oh, and look, I mean again, you know, at that age feel, you know, your your imagination is still a little bit Ah, you know, a little bit open to do certain things.
00:26:02
And I was absolutely convinced the undertaker died.
00:26:04
Now again, maybe if I had seen it.
00:26:06
And again, you're a little bit older than me.
00:26:08
So I think that there was a little bit more reason in your thought process.
00:26:12
When it comes to this, it's like, Wait a minute, they can't have they can't, you know, purposely, uh, kill someone on my TV.
00:26:20
I mean, obviously you know, I'm gonna bring it up, but the own heart situation, That's no joking matter.
00:26:24
But, uh, you know, obviously for storyline purposes, you know, I'm sure you were thinking, Okay, this can't possibly be legit.
00:26:30
But, you know, seeing the strings, I'm sure helped as well, so But I absolutely did believe that at the time that you know Hey and see.
00:26:39
There you go.
00:26:40
Mark even remembers Gorilla Monsoon.
00:26:42
I think they went toe together.
00:26:44
Absolutely.
00:26:45
Monsoon and Dean.
00:26:46
And we're well back in the day.
00:26:47
I mean, gorilla was he was He was the guy.
00:26:49
I am a killer, Kowalski.
00:26:51
And this is old school.
00:26:54
Yep.
00:26:55
Bobo Brazil.
00:26:56
I mean, you got a lot of these old time, you know, wrestlers that were they laid the groundwork.
00:27:00
They set the tone and eventually led into Andre the Giant Roddy Piper, all Cogan.
00:27:04
And then, naturally, after Hulk, it really it took off in wrestling Winkle Actiq after that.
00:27:09
But those are the guys.
00:27:10
Those theory jin a tres So, uh, Romo's always fun.
00:27:13
I'm sure it will be.
00:27:14
I'm sure a lot of people are going to get together and watch that this weekend it's It's nice. How the W W E.
00:27:19
Does that.
00:27:20
They put it opposite the Pro Bowl because obviously there's no football this weekend.
00:27:23
Yes, I know, I said Pro Bowl.
00:27:24
There is no football.
00:27:25
This year's dodgeball events? Yes, exactly.
00:27:29
There's yet you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball and Patrick Hoolahan will be coaching in.
00:27:33
That game is, well late.
00:27:34
Great patches, a little hand.
00:27:35
But in any case, yeah, the rumble is it does it breaks up between championship weekend in the Super Bowl, and W does a smart thing there as well, so they realize they're not going to let a compete.
00:27:47
And I'm sure they were gonna be a lot of XFL references this weekend.
00:27:50
You know, Vince says he's trying to keep the two brands separate, and he's not gonna melt them together like he did the last time.
00:27:55
And Jesse Ventura, you know, J R.
00:27:58
Come on the first national cheerleading thing, the ring announcer come out and announce the players on the field, but they're still gonna mention it, and there's gonna be some cross promotion.
00:28:11
So, yeah, keep a sharp eye on that because the XFL is not too far away, folks? No, no, Just a couple weeks.
00:28:17
And, uh, I I looked it up, so I had to refresh my memory.
00:28:20
So I was kind of right.
00:28:21
So it was current angle at the Royal Rumble.
00:28:24
I went to defeated Chris Ben Wa for the W W E championship.
00:28:28
So that's what it was.
00:28:29
I was I was a little confused cause I also went to WrestleMania the following year where, um, Eddie Guerrero won the world championship.
00:28:36
There's that moment with Ben wa, but, you know, that's like we mentioned.
00:28:40
Ah, you know, actually, ironically, I can't remember was on this show if it was all locked on, but we brought up Chris Benoit in relationship.
00:28:47
So, you know. Yeah.
00:28:49
So there was There was a recent talk about him, but that royal rumble Brock Lesner defeated the undertaker on 30 man, you know, it was it was good.
00:28:57
It was a fun event to go to.
00:28:58
Obviously, you know, if if I was going to sit there and pick out obviously my favorite war warm all events, I, you know, I would not probably picked the one I went to is one of my favorites, but it was still fun to experience that cause, you know, when I think about it like I was able to go to Ah, rumble of WrestleMania Summer Slam.
00:29:15
Er no survivor.
00:29:16
Siri's Oh, wait.
00:29:17
Did I Yeah, I think so.
00:29:19
My guys see this, that this is bad.
00:29:20
This this is what happens.
00:29:21
You know, when I was younger, when I was young and I used to poke fun at me like, how do you not remember the ones you go to know? I'm sitting here thinking like I think I went to Survivor Siri's.
00:29:29
I can't.
00:29:30
Well, see, here's the deal I used to go to, like, every show that ever, um, you know, was in the area whether it was providence, whether is a twister or rooster or Boston.
00:29:39
So, um, you know, in blow.
00:29:41
Yeah. I go back a ways with survivors.
00:29:43
Siri's.
00:29:44
I think 93 was the one that I went to.
00:29:45
That was that the old Boston Garden.
00:29:47
This was right before the garden got torn down.
00:29:49
And it was Thea the infamous ah, razor Ramon.
00:29:54
And no.
00:29:55
And then he had much he was supposed to have Kurt handing Mr Perfect, but actually Kurt was suspended for, I don't know some sort of drug violation or whatever, and he ended up having the macho man is his tag team partner and, infamously, Scott Hall. Grab the microphone.
00:30:09
And, you know, said my partner, Perfect.
00:30:12
So really no going bigger tonight.
00:30:14
And I still remember that and thought that was like a funniest thing I ever heard in my life.
00:30:18
And that was funny to me for like, 10 years.
00:30:20
I'll be honest, folks, it's still funny to me.
00:30:22
I say, Oh, yeah, go on then.
00:30:23
So it's always good.
00:30:25
Ah, but yeah, that was That was Survivor series at the Boston Garden.
00:30:29
I really I'll be honest.
00:30:30
I really can't remember the year right now off that, but it was a pretty good one.
00:30:35
Featured Bret Harte verses Owen Hart match, which was, you know, that I get a chance to see those two brothers go go head on head because they worked so well in the ring together.
00:30:43
You want to talk about technically savvy and having a comfort level with your opponent.
00:30:47
Those two guys put on a great show.
00:30:49
The only two that I think put on a better show.
00:30:51
Then Brett knowing when they were in the ring where Bretton Shawn Michaels, say what you will about the rivalry.
00:30:56
But those two guys know each other so well in terms of what they could do and how they could do it.
00:31:02
And it was just It was amazing.
00:31:03
Those two guys put on a great show.
00:31:05
Britain and Kurt heading and Mr Perfect always put on a good show as well.
00:31:09
Coming. This tells me I'm gonna have to tell Vincent.
00:31:11
I was just I was just thinking about that because I'm like, I'm sitting here thinking like, yeah, you know, And Admittedly so I don't, um, keep up is often, as I used to, obviously, you know, e I mean, just I don't have enough time in the day to, ah, you know, be able t spend, you know, doing this and everything else.
00:31:31
But then that's why I love reading every gums, work over at a PC.
00:31:35
Wrestling, you know, see, keeps me up to date with everything but I So that was a tremendous shot.
00:31:40
Our squad, they're really, really does great stuff, you know? So I live a lot in the yesteryear of wrestling, and obviously the time frame that I watch was, you know, early nineties Thio, mid two thousands, you know, And that was that was my error of wrestling, which which encompassed quite a bit, which had Shawn Michaels undertaker, all those guys.
00:31:58
And, ah, a lot of really good royal room of memories.
00:32:00
And I'll certainly probably be jumping through and watching a few of those.
00:32:03
Or at least going on YouTube and watching some great moments because I'm sure there were so many that I just I didn't think of, um, in this whole this whole discussion.
00:32:12
Plus, you know, just the fact that we had such a short show today we have to kind of cram everything in here.
00:32:16
So that's true, but yeah, look another one real quick that I loved.
00:32:21
You know, I was always a big **** Foley fan, and I loved when he came in as all three.
00:32:27
You know, **** Foot, He was, you know, mankind.
00:32:29
Cactus. Yes, he was offering.
00:32:32
Yeah, that's right.
00:32:33
Cactus Jack, cactus Jack and do love it.
00:32:36
Still managed to lose somehow, But, hey, you know, that's something that was kind of his thing, you know? But you know what that was this thing.
00:32:43
And you know what? Nobody did it better than fully.
00:32:45
I was actually in Worcester when he won the WWF title.
00:32:49
Wow, I can tell you, that is one of I will say this with all due respect to ****, and he got a big ovation that night.
00:32:55
Everybody was happy for him.
00:32:57
But that loudest pop I have ever heard in my entire life at a wrestling event was won Austin.
00:33:04
Oh, yeah. Announced.
00:33:05
And he wasn't supposed to be there that night.
00:33:07
They made it, even had signs up saying, Please do not, you know, get angry, but stone cold.
00:33:12
Steve Austin will not be here tonight because this is the height of Boston's famous was as as big of a superstar and wrestling as you could get.
00:33:20
Austin was off the charts popular, and fans were really upset in the minute that glass broke.
00:33:24
I thought the play I thought that the roof of the Worcester Centrum was literally gonna blow off.
00:33:29
I've never felt that before He was hell. The building's shaking.
00:33:32
It was that's out loud.
00:33:33
It waas was that the ah W c w ruin because that wasn't a lie that was That was Tony Shivani.
00:33:40
Yeah.
00:33:41
Yeah, that'll put Butts in the seats.
00:33:42
I was one of those butts that was in the C.
00:33:44
I was at the event that night.
00:33:46
It was, you know, storm outside and Worcester. It's funny.
00:33:49
Remember these things, But, yeah, it was Bella back in the teenage days.
00:33:52
That was That was great stuff.
00:33:54
And yeah, they did not get much better than that, folks seeing that.
00:33:58
And that was in a great event from start to finish.
00:34:00
I think everybody in W W was at their peak at that moment.
00:34:03
That really Olympique WW attitude When it comes to that rivalry between two companies, no one really thought about it at the time.
00:34:10
But that was that was a big moment, because again, that whole idea backfired because, you know, that's the thing.
00:34:16
Like **** full, you know, mankind.
00:34:17
He was very much beloved.
00:34:19
So when people heard the result of it like a way I want to see this.
00:34:22
So you know what people did They all tuned, you know, Monday.
00:34:26
Yeah.
00:34:27
So, uh, it's funny.
00:34:28
And and like I said, I mean little like you said the little things that you remember.
00:34:31
And then here I am thinking, like, what did I have for breakfast yesterday? You know, but it's true.
00:34:37
I can't even remember what I had this morning, but that Yeah, no, I I got your Steve.
00:34:42

00:34:45

00:34:49

00:34:50
He's like, sometimes I call people by the wrong name on purpose, You know, when they start to get a little too chummy and give me what I've got to start doing that.
00:34:59
