Yeah I hope you guys aren't offended if I don't listen to you talk about a wrestling pay per view for 3 hours.

We don't talk about one. We talk about 27.

I think it's pretty safe to say a lot of regular listeners wouldn't be up for a three hour podcast about wrestling.

But I'll listen.

Not only am I offended as a member of onthestick.com, I take it personally! You asshole! No, actually, we fully expect that not that many of our regular listeners will listen, but we felt like doing it and it's our site, so we did.

Also, if you grabbed it earlier and it sounds like ass, it's been fixed now.

Worth mentioning: you were actually only one pound off in calling my billed weight. I weighed 235 pounds a few years ago when I last got my ID updated, so that's what it says to this day. I've lost weight since then, but I am officially still "billed" at 235 by the Illinois Secretary of State's office. You said 236.

Sadly Joe's probably not far of on my and Jeremy's combined weight. I'm embarrassed by what my portion of it is.

As a lapsed wrestling fan (and only a brief one at that) I'm enjoying your history lesson.

I wish I had a friend who hosted a Wrestlemania party so I could get an annual fix.

I might still listen if I get really bored, though.

I had some really boring work to do by myself after hours, so I listened to this. All of it. It was actually OK, to be honest; even though I don't enjoy watching wrestling, I can kinda see why you folks are so into it. That said, as someone who once tolerated wrestling and then grew to hate it (due to a traumatic experience that I've told Joe and Eric about), what is one wrestling match that is so good that it might actually entertain me? If you can link it via YouTube, I will watch it, I promise.

It may not be my #1 match of all time, but it's the first to come to mind that contains all the elements of what I love about pro wrestling: Magnum TA vs. Tully Blanchard in a Steel Cage "I Quit" Match.

Yes, I'm glad you linked me to that match a few weeks ago because it's outstanding. It feels so intense and violent, even though it doesn't have nearly as much objective violence as "extreme" wrestling from the '90s forward.

Randy Savage vs. Ricky Steamboat from WrestleMania III would also be a good choice. It's on DailyMotion, though the quality is pretty cruddy.

I know I'm a week late, but I'm finally breaking down and watching ED2 and Army of Darkness because of last week's 'cast. I'd put it off so long because my wife hates Bruce Campbell, but fuck it, I'll watch without her.

Loved this one, guys. Couple questions, though:

1) If I wanted to pick up a half dozen or so wrestling DVDs, what would you recommend?

2) Was Joey Pink typically a face or a heel?

(Note: availability on these may vary)

1) Bloodbath: Wrestling's Most Incredible Steel Cage Matches, The Rise and Fall of ECW, The Life and Times of Mr. Perfect, ECW Deep Impact, The Monday Night War, Ric Flair and the Four Horsemen, The Best of Monday Night Raw 1993-2008, Revival of Super Hero: Tiger Mask Final Collection, Better Than You: The Best of CM Punk (RoH)

2) Heel, baby.

BONUS: As we said on the podcast, if you want to read a great, GREAT book about wrestling, you owe it to yourself to read The Death of WCW.

I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, but did you guys talk about Mick Foley's Have a Nice Day, too? I enjoyed that one. (Haven't gotten around to reading The Death of WCW yet, though.)

We talked about it briefly when I mentioned that it's fun to read it and count the number of Al Snow jokes contained therein. I'd also recommend Chris Jericho's book, which I read recently. He's not the writer that Foley is, but he as an exceptionally strong voice that makes it a joy to read. I've read Hogan and Hart's books as well, but neither is really much to write home about.

Speaking of wrestling, does anyone else remember the time Hulk Hogan, Mr. T, Mike Tyson and Jean Claude Van Damme teamed up to fight crime?

You ever heard of those Native Americans that suspended themselves from hooks and the pain reached a point where their spirit left their body? That's what the last two episodes felt like. C'mon, guys.

So you had a religious experience listening to them?

Ok, I get people not like the 3-hour wrestlecast, but who doesn't like Sam Raimi? Fie on you, sir. Fie, I say!

He was maybe referring to the action cast? He's still crazy, but I could understand that more, I guess.

In before "less painful than Crescent Isle" jokes.

I still can't believe you talked about wrestling for three hours. I have a hard time talking about wrestling for three minutes. And you did it for three hours!

Yeah, because you don't like it. I have a hard time talking about landscape paintings from the 19th century for more than three minutes because I don't give a fuck about landscape paintings from the 19th century. I do, however, like wrestling. In fact, we continued talking for probably another hour after the recording ends AND we could probably have continued beyond that. Because we all enjoy pro wrestling sports entertainment.

I hereby start a petition that all On The Sticks should be edited to Django Rheindart. It adds something, though I can't put my finger on what.

I love that everyone freaked out about the 3-hour length of the Wrestlemania cast, and now there's a new OTS that's also basically 3 hours long.
