This week’s IN THE ROOM with Brady Hicks we sit down with Cory Kastle, an independent wrestler and the producer of the Wrestling with Disaster documentary due out later this year. If you’re in the Philadelphia area be sure to head down to the ECW Arena on June 14th for the WWD’s “Final Cut” festivities, which includes six great matches! Plus, Vince McMahon lost $350 million in one day this week when stocks plummeted. Brady, DJ, Kathie, and Derrick talk about some of the drastic things WWE could to to quickly recoup that kind of money. All that, plus live callers and so … much … more. Thanks, as always, for the support!
Chats with indie stars of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
It was truly another exciting edition of IN THE ROOM, as Brady Hicks, Derrick McDonald, Anthony Sarlo, and Ray Bogusz talk the anniversary of Chris Benoit’s death and his legacy as a wrestler, plus fantastic editions of Raw and Impact with props to guys such as Mark Henry, Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, and quite a few other performers. The gang also debate sports today, including which are the best and not-so-good ones. In addition, Brady’s Riot Pro Wrestling broadcast colleague Emil Jay checks in to offer his thoughts on this Friday’s Retribution show … and open lines for two hours! All that, plus so … much … more. Thanks, as always, for the support!
We’re back with another edition of IN THE ROOM, this week featuring our very special guest and good friend of the show Zach Gowen of WWE fame. Gowen’s story is a truly remarkable one and anyone who is not familiar will definitely want to check it out. At just 8 years old, Tenacious Z lost his leg to cancer, then went on to have a distinguished career as a high-flying star! What was it like for Gowen to be in the ring with guys like Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Vince McMahon, and Brock Lesnar less than a year into his career? What’s the story behind his awesome “Kicking it with the Kids” anti-bullying message? Plus, Zach’s experiences teaming with Gregory Iron to form “The Handicapped Heroes,” competing in New Moon Rising Wrestling, and so … much … more. Plus, Brady Hicks, Anthony Sarlo, and Ray Bogusz take more of a look at Curtis Axel, WWE Raw from last night, erotic fiction, and a truly memorable Bleacher Report article courtesy of Mike Bessler. It was a fun show. Thanks, as always, for the support!
What another great edition of IN THE ROOM we had tonight, as Brady Hicks, Derrick McDonald, and Ray Bogusz were joined by indie sensation and (no doubt) future star of the business Tatevik The Gamer and her business partner Steve Stasiak. Both are awesome people inside and out of the ring, and of course Tatevik is pretty easy on the eyes as well! Find out right from the future Diva herself what it’s like to be regarded as “just another pretty face,” the world of competing in martial arts, plus acting, dancing, and so much more. Plus, open lines for two hours as Brady and the gang talk WWE Extreme Rules, HHH vs. Joe Hennig, ethnic stereotypes in wrestling, and WWE’s scrapped plans for several DVDs. All that, plus, say it with me Cujo, so … much … more! Thanks as always for the support!
IN THE ROOM is back once again … with all of the WrestleMania–and WrestleMania weekend–talk you could ever envision. What did Brady Hicks, Derrick McDonald, DJ, Ray Bogusz, and Harry Barnett really think of the show?! What was memorable? What wasn’t? And what was Brady’s experience at WrestleCon and Axxess?! Plus, Chris Wylde checks in with his thoughts on this Saturday’s Super 8 tournament in Newark, Delaware, and Dean Dixon calls in to recount his experiences with Jushin Liger and Bobby Heenan, and so much more at WrestleCon. Special thanks to all those who called in to make this show memorable!
IN THE ROOM is back once again, and this time with special guest Fredo Majors, as he runs down the card for this Friday night’s Riot Pro Wrestling‘s “Crowning the Empire” show in Fairless Hills, PA! It’s going to be a great show, so if you’re in the area definitely stop by and check it out. Plus, Brady Hicks, Derrick McDonald, Ray Bogusz, and Harry Barnett take listener calls, and talk WWE’s WrestleMania buildup, AJ versus Kaitlyn as the star of the Diva’s division, torn anuses, what was better: Rock n Wrestling or The Attitude Era, and a very special announcement by Harry Barnett, plus so … much … more!
IN THE ROOM comes to you live from the WDMD studios in Bristol, PA! Tonight, Brady Hicks, Derrick McDonald, and Ray Bogusz are joined by ECWA / NMRW star Damian Dragon. It is Dragon’s final year in wrestling, and he has made it his mission to compete in this year’s Super 8. What are Dragon’s thoughts about wrestling in the tournament he has always dreamed about? What else is on tap for Dragon both now and as he phases himself out of the ring? And what has the experience been teaming with longtime partner Matt Saigon in both ECWA and New Moon? All that, plus lots of callers, including What’s Wrong With Wrestling’s Harry Barnett, and a discussion of WWE’s many mistakes in its WrestleMania build, TNA issues abounding, Shelton Benjamin, and Ryback, plus so … much … more. Thanks, as always, for the support!
IN THE ROOM comes to you LIVE once again from the beautiful WDMD studios in downtown Bristol, PA! Check it out as PWI Magazine’s Brady Hicks, Derrick McDonald, and Ray Bogusz are joined on the line by New Moon Rising Wrestling’s “The Center of Attention” Marc Angel in advance of his big match with King Blackie at NMRW Ides of March. Plus … should Wade Barrett be a main-eventer, the staying power of Zeb Coulter’s bodyguard Jack Swagger, WWE reaching out to old Divas (and the merits of using current ones such as Kaitlyn and past ones such as Kharma), a HIAC Talk Radio invasion of sorts (we open the gates and put them right on, unlike Eric Bischoff), open phone lines for two hours, and so … much … more. Thanks, as always, for the support!
What a night here IN THE ROOM, as Brady Hicks, Ray Bogusz, and Derrick McDonald break down everything WWE is (and should be) doing as the company gears up for The Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. Who should be taking on The Undertaker at the biggest show of the year? The Rock? John Cena? Plus, the value of putting midcard guys in the ring with main-eventers and “legends,” and so … much … more. Plus, Slim Burgundy from New Moon Rising Wrestling calls in to talk about his managerial debut in the corner of Marc Angel at Brawl for it All, January 19th at The Proving Grounds in Deptford, New Jersey, some ECWA talk, and more. Thanks to all those who called in, and thanks for the support!
Also, Brady will be giving away two tickets to NMRW Brawl for it All on next week’s show. To get in the running, you’ll have to call into the show between 9:30 and 11:30 EST and answer a trivia question about New Moon, one of the hottest indies in the world today.
