It was good. I knew most of it since I've watched 30 hours of New Jack shoot interviews. But I'd imagine people who didn't know much about him had their minds blown. I loved the end scene.

If they want to do shows on wild wrestlers still alive I hope they do one on Marty Jannetty next year because that could be hilarious. But also sad because he should have been a bigger star.

Check out Conrad's Dark Side of the Ring podcast. Tiny The Terrible is an attempted politician who plays with toys all day where his Star Trek Whoopi Goldberg action figure is the Goddess over the other toys. He also has an interesting take on Hitler.

The takeaway this week was Godfather is the coolest dude in the business.

The takeaway is that JBL was responsible for the Brawl for All bullshit and Russo is still an annoying fuckass.

We knew that already. I just thought it was cool that Godfather is the least bitter ex-wrestler ever who moved on and let all old grudges go, just choosing to remember the fun times. He's the complete opposite of Jim Cornette. Maybe Cornette just needs some weed.

I would imagine all that vagoo probably helps him be happy too. :D

Conrad's podcast on it is up. There's some more stories about Godfather being awesome and a sad story about Bart Gunn. Also apparently Jim Cornette just has to yell "RUSSO!" in his house and his wife will know to stay away from him. And a story about an idea Russo had for the show that Cornette turned down because "if I see him I will black out in a rage and wake up in a prison cell."

Rick Martel knows a whole helluva lot. Not that he was involved, but it seems Dino told him enough that he knows who did it but stops short because he doesn't want them coming after him.

I thought this was going to be the weakest one of the season. Nope.
My favorite of the season so far - just a heartwrenching story from top to bottom. And in places profoundly disturbing.
