The Following Contest.. A Wrestling Podcast featuring Cody Kahne and The Krue


A Whole Years?!?

Cody Kahne has a conversation with ACO, Johnny Legacy, Tommy Gun Tommy, and The Trevinator about the most recent happenings from the world of wrestling and slightly reflect over the past year of what has been PodTFC in all its glory, goodness, and early day cringe. (Skip to 2:20:30 if you are just looking for Cody's star ratings from NXT Takeover XXV) Its a long episode, we're not going to lie, but we didn't want to put a cap on it for the year. Bunny trails abound. Other nerdly topics arise. And it all ends with a thank you to Dexter Morris, Cool Chris Coley, C-Mo, Abraham Delacey Gioseppe Casey, Tommy Gun Tommy, Joey T Vasquez, ACO, Johnny Legacy, The Trevinator, and The Producer for a year of The Following Contest podcast featuring Cody Kahne and The Krue. Here's to many more guys! 


The Studio A Plus Experience

Cody Kahne has ACO, Johnny Legacy, and Trevinator in this week to discuss the relevant news of the day, the name changes, the releases, the future, the state of the fandom, the upgrades to Studio A, Tommy Gun Tommy's superhero origin story, Flair/Steamboat... we could continue listing but it would take too much space. A wild ride from beginning to end.. and did we mention the Great Balls of Fire review portion of the show? 


Who is teaming with Who now?

Cody Kahne asked The Krue and some friends of PodTFC for lists but didn't explain himself. Here is the result. Listen as Cody reveals the largest most time-travelling-est Lethal Lottery Mixed Match Challenge Tournament of All the Times! Who made the tournament? Who got paired with who? Who do you think is going to win this one? Listen and see as the guys go over match by grueling match. Did Gillberg make the tournament? (Spoilers: Sadly no.) 


Ten Years Ago: The NOT-Repeat

The whole PodTFC adventure started on a round table discussion about wrestling champions now (at the time in June) versus ten year prior (June of 2008). So as the new year starts and PodTFC looks forward to 2019 we decided to look back to 2009. Who were the champions at that time. Are we better off now or were we better off then? Is it all nostalgia? 

Also on this week's episode, a quick discussion of the greatest mask of all time, Mr. America's real identity, and much much more. Let us know what you thought of this week's episode. 


nXt UK Takeover Blackpool Review

Cody Kahne gives us his quick immediate thoughts on the first nXt UK branded Takeover. What did you think? Did you agree with Cody on his thoughts on the matches? Where does nXt UK go from here?

The Following Contest podcast presents to you for your listening pleasure the first annual PodTFC Mandatory and Obligatory End of Year Award Show Extravaganza! Including the MVP award and the inaugural Greg Hamilton Gold Award, listen and see who took home each award. Who was the best of the year? Who was the worst (in at least one category) and what were the guys thoughts on the award winners and arguably some of the losers? Awards for best hair and dance are mixed in with the best wrestlers and matches and PPVs of the year in professional wrestling across the board. 


And the nomination goes to… not ACO!

Cody Kahne sits down with Johnny Legacy and PodTFC newbie Abraham Delacey Gioseppi Casey to go over at least some of the nominees and some of the categories for next week's upcoming PodTFC Annual Obligatory Mandatory Award Show That Only Happens At The End Of The Year. Who are some of the nominees and what are the categories? Some are out of left field and some a bit more traditional. Just a fun little preview of what is to come next week. Who do you think should win?


Fantasy Booking 101.. Episode Twenty-One

Cody Kahne revisits the now ever-popular question of a WWE vs the World event super card. The fact is the WWE can put together Supercards with just their own roster but what if you included the rest of the world? Who made the cut? Who was left off the card? There are some intriguing match-ups in this one. What are your thoughts? What matches would you like to see?


nXt WarGames II.. Great.. as usual

Within the immediate aftermath of nXt Takeover WarGamesII, Johnny Legacy and ACO sit down and review the show for you. There's much more to it than that as ACO devolves into his vision for the future of the WarGames franchise and you don't want to miss that. We mean it. There's waterslides involved. Find out what the guys liked (a lot of it) and what they didn't like (literally not very much in this category). What were your thoughts?


Fantasy Booking 101.. Episode Eighteen

Through the magic of time-travel (or pre-recording.. one of the two) the fearless leader returns to PodTFC for the finale of the 32 team concurrent tag-team tournament. Who do you think wins? Who should win? Who didn't win that should have won? Who politely sat outside the ring during the melee to discuss their respective careers? (okay, that may not have happened) Let us know what you thought about this week's Fantasy Booking 101
