Wrestling Night in Canada 020: Four More

We started this program by introducing your hosts with the old standard of sharing our “Mount Rushmore” of pro wrestling. But it’s not just the wrestlers that make up this one ring circus. You got your managers. You got your promoters. You got your announcers. Some of these capture as much attention and contribute as much to the overall presentation as their in ring counterparts. So we decided we’d show…

Wrestling Night in Canada 019: 2020 – Goodbye, Farewell and Eff You!!

This latest episode of WNIC was easy enough to book. Right now there is only two things of importance in the Wrasslin’ world. First up, Mr. Brodie Lee. The wrestling community is saddened by the loss of this great man. He was/is so universally respected the outpouring of emotion is staggering. Those same emotions were felt in the WNIC offices as well. So we took the time to pay tribute…

Wrestling Night in Canada 018: Grinch McMahon

Welcome to our very unreasonable facsimile of a holiday episode. It’s not that we’re not feeling the Christmas Spirit. There’s just so much going on the wonderful world of Wrasslin’ that we’re still focused on the Squared Circle as opposed to some fat man’s annual home invasions. First up we do our blow by blow account of the TLC event. As well, we dissect our first TripleMania. AAA has once…

Wrestling Night in Canada 017: “The Big Reveal”

One of the life’s blood of pro wrestling has been the “The Big Reveal”. The build up of an angle with an air of mystery. Something big is going down and it has fans captivated. Hopefully, ‘The Big Reveal’ gets a huge pop and goes over big. But sometimes it doesn’t. This week on “Turnbuckle Talk”, we remember some of the more memorable reveals, good or bad. Who was “The…

Wrestling Night in Canada 016: Legendary Tales

This time on WNIC, a living legend takes his Last Ride. But before we get to that, we must focus on another Legend. Ring announcers are some of our unsung heroes. And CZW’s Larry Legend ranks with the best of them. So we wanted to give Mr. Legend an opportunity to tell his story. In our second interview, Legend discusses his monicker, his time in DragonGate, his take on Death…

Wrestling Night in Canada 015: “Eddie World Order”

This week marks the anniversary of the passing of the amazing Eddie Guerrero. It’s hard to believe it’s been 15 yrs. since “Latino Heat” left us much too early. So we decided to focus our attention to the former World champ in our “Turnbuckle Talk”. The highs and lows of his storied career. How we first discovered EG and all our fave moments. AS well, we discussed the ICW Pit…

Wrestling Night in Canada 014: Givin’ The Gears

Your boyz from the Great White North (eh) have lots to yack about this time around. Which took us well beyond the time limit draw. First up, we dive deep into both the recent WWE “Hell In The Cell” and AEW “Full Gear” extravaganzas. In our “Turnbuckle Talk”, we chart our own pro wrestling geography class. Pro wrestling has it’s own terms and expressions and those include some of the…

Wrestling Night in Canada 013: We Just Made Our List!!

For a variety of reasons, Chris Jericho is our homie! First off, he’s a good Canadian boy. More specifically from our hometown of Winnipeg (you idiots!). As well, he was cut from the same heavy music scene cloth that we were. So of course, we’ve been following “Le Champion” from his humble indie roots to owning Wednesday night US cable TV. So when it was announced Mr. Jericho was celebrating…

Wrestling Night in Canada 012: Roadies Forever!!

It’s hard to comprehend, but we now live in a (wrestling) world with no Road Warriors in it. The shocking news of the untimely demise of Road Warrior Animal left us gutted. So now its appropriate to pay tribute to the man with a Turnbuckle Talk dedicated to the once in a lifetime combo of Hawk and Animal – The Road Warriors!! We discuss our personal fandoms, the iconic theme…

Wrestling Night in Canada 011: Title Changes

Since the one – two punch of our last episodes, we had a bit of time between. That’s cool, as there’s been enough going on in the Wonderful World Of Wrasslin’ for at least another couple episodes. But this time around, we’ll keep it to one. First off, we go into the all that went on with SummerSlam. And of course, Payback was the following week. To which both were…

Wrestling Night in Canada 010: Deathamania

Your hoser hosts of WNIC each bring their own stuff to the table. Snowy is the old timer. Matt has a good grip on the current “product”. and Ducky likes to venture deep into wrasslin’s underground. So this episode sees us giving our whys and wherefores on the recent “King Of The Death Match” tournament! A brutal two day tourney thats more gladiator barbarism than sport. And it featured our…

Wrestling Night in Canada 009: JerichRow

This episode of “Wrestling Night In Canada” sees your favourite hosers playing catch with some of the major cards lately. We give the once over and our 2 cents to NXT’s “Great American Bash”, Impact’s “Slammaversary”, and the truly horror(ible) Extreme Rules. For our “Turnbuckle Talk’, there could only be one topic. We’re all heavy music fans. Kind of the show’s gimmick. And fans of both Chris Jericho and 80s…

Wrestling Night in Canada 008: Always a Bridesmaid…

With such a heavy duty episode last time, we were thrilled to lighten the load this time ’round. The Speaking Out movement gave way to a variety of other topics plaguing our great sport. The Impact Wrestling World title picture is in shambles. As is their roster. Renee Young’s Covid woes are impacting the competition. And Sammy Guevara shows he’s a man. For our “Turnbuckle Talk’, we go over an…

Wrestling Night in Canada 007: Speaking Out

It could be Wrestlemania all over again. The card could have featured nothing but Steamboat/Savages. But it would be all for nought as right now the wrestling world is a little distracted. A few years ago, the TV and Film industry started calling out its unsavoury and inappropriate behaviour towards women with the MeToo movement. Now this has reared it’s ugly head in the squared circle. All it took was…

Wrestling Night in Canada 006: A Hart On

Recently the world of wrasslin’ suffered thru an anniversary of one of it’s darkest chapters. May 23rd will always go down infamy as the day we lost the great Owen Hart. To coincide with this tragedy, “The Dark Side Of The Ring” series used this for it’s highest rated episode yet. WNIC has chosen to use this anniversary to celebrate the awesomeness that was, and still is, “The King Of…

Wrestling Night in Canada 005: Preggy Lynch

It’s amazing how one woman’s reproduction choice can shake up the wrestling world. Of course, it helps that it’s the industry’s biggest star. Becky Lynch’s pregnancy announcement and title vacancy, for good or bad, got tongues wagging and forum boards lit up. And your “Four Horsemen of The Apodcalypse” have an opinion…or four. It also inspired this episode’s discussion topic of the three fundamentals of a pro wrestler. As well,…

Wrestling Night in Canada 004: Piledriver – The Episode

The worlds of pro wrestling and heavy music have always been close bedfellows. Not only just as cool ring entrance music (i.e. the ominous tones of”Iron Man” as the Roadies stormed the ring), but a multitude of other aspects as well (i.e. Erick Rowan’s T shirt collection). All the way to wrestling terminologies making great band names. Huh?? Well, case in point – “Piledriver”. As awesome (predominantly) 80s Heavy Metal…

Wrestling Night in Canada 003: Future Endeavors

Traditionally, post Mania the WWE/F had a tendency of doing a lot of housecleaning. It wasn’t uncommon to see a handful of personal receiving their “future endeavors”. This year there was a record number of releases. In one day, one after another were shown in the door. So much in fact the name “Black Wednesday” was born. Endless to say, your Four Horsemen of the Apodcalypse are none to happy…

Wrestling Night in Canada 002: WrestleMania???

Just as we’re off and running with our inaugural episode, the fit hit the shan! We’re immediately expelled from our awesome Atomic 29 and banished into Skype Hades. But you’re four Horsemen of the Apodcalypse shall persevere. This same situation is also messing with our beloved sport. Just in time for Wrestlemania! Now the biggest night of the year has come and gone and this year’s ‘Mania will never be…

Wrestling Night in Canada 001: The Four Jackasses

Horns Up! Welcome to the inaugural episode of Wrestling Night In Canada! The concept is simple. Four good old Canadian boyz from the same heavy music scene discovered they had a mutual love of pro Wrasslin’. And each brought their own fandom skill set to the ring apron. So a revelation later, the Four Horsemen Of The A – pod – calypse were born! But every great story has an…
