@Laz , I immediately felt bad for that dig. Especially since I am wearing a very Scandinavian sweater and khakis rn and am just as if not more likely to be falsely accused of being a white nationalist dipshit.
Will do. I just forgot to take notes on which episode he was talking about (since I still haven’t watched) and didn’t want to give a half story. He did talk about laughing at Paulie Walnuts chasing Russians, I think.
Listening to the JR podcast on 97-98 Shawn Michaels from a few weeks back. I popped when JR talking about HBK’s backstage behavior at least matching an on camera heel before comparing Trump to drugged up Michaels.
Conrad has the best chemistry with Bruce but outside the times JR refers to fans beating off in their mom’s basements, I think JR’s is the best of the Conrad shows.
@The Art of Postin' Just so you know, JR spent time at the end of the show putting over the show Yellowstone and talking about loving it because it hits a lot of the same check marks as The Sopranos. Figured you’d want to know.
I'm surprised that @Baby Shoes didn't mention the fact that the intro to the show is clips of JR cussing people out like the angry grandpa he is, while a distorted Conrad yells "Grillin' JR!" repeatedly over an instrumental of RATM's "Killing in the Name Of". It totally misrepresents the show and makes it seem like it's an aggro early '00s sports talk radio show.
All of the shows have gone way downhill since the advent of AdFreeShows 6 months or so ago. Randomly listened to an 83 Weeks on Uncensored '00 from the start of quarantine and I swear there were half the ads (if that) that there are on current shows (plus the ads that were there were live reads with both guys riffing).
Annoying overabundance of ads has made it hard to listen to any of the shows BUT I would say of all of them, 83 Weeks has become my clear favorite. Bischoff has become humbled the more and more he realizes his days in the wrestling industry are over (although I still HATE his overplayed Dave Meltzer rants) and I think Conrad's most comfortable pushing back on his BS and firing back at him. You feel bad if someone is too hard on JR or Tony everyone including Bruce knows he's a toad so it's hard to get into any sort of worthy argument with him, and no one is going to argue with The Enforcer.. But Bischoff...you can volley back and forth and it makes for best dynamic IMO.
That Uncensored '00 episode features an exchange where Conrad asked Bischoff is he's ever been in a traphouse and Eric confusedly talking about animal trapping so maybe I should recommend that one to @The Art of Postin' .
Damn I told myself no more TL;DR posts about the AFS network of shows in 2021.
Besides JR, I avoid most of the MNW era shows. I like off prime stuff like Crockett/pre Hogan WCW shows or even Ruthless Aggression era WWE or TNA shows. It feels like there's less spin since it's stuff guys aren't used to talking about as much and don't have stock answers for.
I used to love how the Bruce shows would span eras but other than his chemistry with Conrad, the show has regressed since he went back to WWE.
I honestly hadn’t listened to many of them in 2020 but in the past few weeks tried a couple Bruce and a couple JR again on topics I was curious about. I actually didn’t even realize the theme song since I’ve been doing the 30 second skip blocks on my podcast app to get through the five minutes of commercials that start the show.
I was into Bruce's show for awhile but his constant WWE stanning and towing the company line while defending some obviously nonsensical booking was enough for me and I unsubscribed. Don't care enough about Bischoff or Arn to listen to their shows and am not interested in Schiavone's. I've been listening to JR's a bit lately and while he does go into "old man get off my lawn" territory sometimes, I find his insight much more compelling.
