    Wow! 3 people signed up for your fan event? You must be proud! By the way, I didn’t realize it was gonna be in my home town. Maybe I’ll show up and see if you are man enough to talk junk to me in person, or if that’s just reserved for your podcast.

  4. Oh, yeah. Please come. We need somebody to follow us around bitching about every little thing for four days. It will be lots of fun!!!

    I’m not saying I wanted to hang with you. I am saying that if I stopped by, you wouldn’t talk junk to my face like you do behind the safety of your computer screen. Plus, I don’t need to listen to you name drop about every wrestler you have met for four days. And I damn sure don’t want to hear you cry about the fiance that left you because of wrestling either!

  6. You’re wrong. You DO need to tune in and listen to me every week which is why you are a faithful listener. I hope you do show up for the Fan Conclave … I’ve never had a problem telling anyone anything to their face. PLEASE COME BROTHER TITO!!!

    Brady, great show man as always!

    Jermaine, Do you not know who this man is? This is Brady Hicks. Do you know who Nathan Gonzalez is? No of course you don’t because ever since he mentioned Brady’s name in a negative manner… he hasn’t been seen since. You should be calling this man Sir. Show respect when on HIS WEBSITE! You are on TheBradyHicks.com NOT the non existent TheBrotherJermaine.com.

    Good evening and goodnight.

    Oh great. An even lamer podcaster has come to the rescue. Stop with the Brady Ass-kissing. Why don’t you save your ass-kissing for someone who matters?

    And don’t even get me started on your “show”. What’s Wrong With Wrestling? Maybe it’s the lame podcasters who talk about it as if they are insiders but don’t have any clue what they are talking about. Why don’t you mumble about that for your next show?

    Ive never understood why someone follows and stalks someone on the internet who they dont like. Why waste the time listening or reading if you dont like the material? I dont turn on the radio and tune in to Z100 in NY so I can complain about how much I hate listening to it and how much it sucks.

    Anyway didnt listen to the show yet, but will try to listen later this weekend. I wonder if Vince would have the guts to let Punk win the title and go walk away and defend the belt in NJPW or ROH to sell the angle (with of course the contractual stip that Punk cant do any jobs outside the company). Something similar to what WCW tried to do with Brian Pillman back in the 90s except they let him do it without a contract and then he signed with the WWF and WCW looked like morons. Let the WWE have only the one champion then until Punk comes back in a few months declaring himself the real world champ since he defended his belt for x amount of months all over the world leading to that unification match that you wanted. They did that real champion angle back with Michaels and Ramon when Shawn got suspended as the IC champ and then came back with the belt, claiming he was the champ, which is what led to the first ladder match where the winner had to claim both titles.

    • Great thoughts, Jason. But do you REALLY think WWE would seriously follow through with something like that, which would essentially put the fed on equal footing with a ROH or NJPW?

        I wouldnt think so but I always think they have an alterior motive when they allow their talent to mention other people on air that supposedly are not under deal with them. I always remember back to 1992 when they did the Hogan retirement special on USA to promote Mania (probably in lieu of Prime Time Wrestling that week) and they showed Hogan beating Andre and oddly Hogan losing to Warrior. I had been so used to the WWF completely burying guys that left that I thought was wow is Warrior coming back and next thing you know hes back a few weeks later. They did similar stuff when they would, in passing, bury ECW and as things turned out they were funnelling money and some talent there.

        I have to admit when I saw Punks promo my initial toughts were: Lesnar is coming back, Hogan has sent out feelers to return for one last big payday, the company is considering some agreement with NJPW and ROH, and Colt Cabana is coming in. Needless to say I was not shocked when Meltzer reported that Lesnar and the WWE are in negotiations for some non wrestling project or sorts and that one of Punks contract demands are Cabana coming in right on the top of the shows. I just always figure McMahon covers almost every base before he okays anything that goes out over the live microphone, though I guess its possible he simply said as long as you dont mention TNA any company is fine to mention on the air.

        • Interesting too because I’ve long thought (recently more out loud on other radio programs I’ve appeared) whether WWE has been quietly supporting ROH financially to help keep it alive … much as it had for ECW.

          It always seemed odd to me how guys let go by the fed would appear in ROH for a few shots, only to eventually return. Matt Hardy and Jamie Noble come to mind. Plus Ric Flair, who, once he screwed over ROH, disappeared from WWE as well despite a program put in place for him.

    LOL you sound incredibly familiar… Are you Mark Long under a new gimmick? We are all only defending ourselves to the malicious words you are coming out with.

    As for bashing my show, you think I care what you think? Bash away because I know which one of us has the podcast, which one of us gets to say good or bad about wrestling each week, was on WSW for a short period of time and which one of us is the tool with nothing better to do than rub a few people the wrong way.

    If BJ wants to throw down in Atlanta, I say do it. He’ll have time to clean the cheetos and exit his mother’s dank basement for someone to break his jaw.

    Hey Brady, Just stop kissing VOC ass… Your show is as good as his, and I personally think VOC and his crew sometimes are boring. And please stop using Ratboy, or at least give him better mike. I know that I sound like an asshole, only criticizing… In the room is a great show, and I wait for it every week, but men sometimes it is just hard to listen when for example AC Smooth is cutting in and out…
    Miłego dnia!
    Have a nice day!

    • Yeah, some mic trouble this week. Thanks for the kind words!

    Didn’t DJ have problems with the rain last year which is one of the reasons Scott Hall didn’t put his shed up? (Still makes me laugh)

    It’s a shame Destination X and everything and everyone involved now get looked at as the past and is only good enough for a one off special. I’m more excited about it than any combination of Sting, Anderson, RVD or the other guy with Joker face paint. Bring on Sting VS Hogan at Bound for Glory!

    Harry, you must be the one sucker who paid Tommy Fierro for the “opportunity” to have a podcast. And now you are bragging about it? Haha!

      Wow you are annoying, are you sure you aren’t Mark Long? Not sure where you got paid from… but paid or not, who was on WSW… me or you? Exactly.

      Vince, Sting is the guy with the Joker paint.

            Rumour is TNA are gong to re-name the third singles belt again to the rehab championship. If you actually pass a drug test you get stripped of the title. So basically it will have almost the exact same guys competing for it as the world title.

    Brother Jermaine says:

    Harry, you make it seem as if it is a real accomplishment to have a podcast. Everyone and their grandma could hold a podcast if they wanted to. It’s not an accomplishment at all. And it’s funny that you try to ignor the fact that you PAID Tommy to be on WSW during one of his promotional “schemes”, and then brag about how big a deal it is. Dude, you PAID for something that anyone can do for FREE. Just think of that for a minute.

    HarryBarnett says:

    Vince, third singles title? The divas title? I think 90% of them must be failing the tests.

    Jermaine, Accomplishment? You’re putting words in my mouth. Remind me, why are you still here? You honestly have nothing better to do than argue with someone about something you don’t like? Im not ignoring anything, im just wondering where you get some bizarre ideas from? The only one other person who came up with such an idea was Mark Long. Im also doubting the fact your name is even Jermaine, so hiding behind a persona online to be able to bash myself, Brady or anyone else… wow.

    No DJ!?! I realize Dj’s probably burnt out from carrying ITR for the last few weeks but I hope he comes back soon, the show just isn’t the same without DJ.

    Brady this Voc cross over thing is getting old, they have their own show people can listen to if they want to but ITR is unique. Stop selling out ITR and it’s listeners as inferior and we should be so humbled Voc knows ITR exists. ITR is the best podcast.

      I shall return…DJ

  22. Haha, thanks. For the record, DJ’s basement was flooded. I had asked Ratboy to come on for fun and then Albert I asked when DJ couldn’t go. I love ITR and I appreciate all our fans … why else would I want everyone to come out for the fan conclave?

  23. Avatar Vince G
    Vince G says:

    Clearly Brady is trying to get rid of all evidence of ITR. First Kev disappears and now DJ. The fan conclave is a ruse to get all the big fans of ITR in one place so he can get rid of us too and then with us all gone he will finally join the VOC.

    Clever, and you would have gotten away with it too if it wasn’t for us meddling kids.

    did anyone watch destination X? I completely forgot it was on sunday, i was watching a marathon of “American Pickers” on the history channel pretty good show these dudes drive around the United States collecting a huge variety of old stuff.

      I watched most of it and it was really good. The 4 way for the contract was great and AJ vs Daniels was obviously really good.Lynn vs RVD had some really cool spots.

      A JoMo looking guy that impressed TNA during a tryout on tour had a decent match with Doug Williams.It’s a real shame GenMe have been let go.

      As you would expect with a TNA PPV the main event got ruined by Eric B and then half the locker room coming down to get involved which took away what steam there was between Abyss and Kendrick.
