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!
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?
To break down the insanity of the last three days in professional wrestling is impossible on one show. So with that knowledge we try to do exactly that and likely fail in spectacular fashion. With Mania, the G1 Special, and Takeover fresh in mind Cody Kahne, ACO, and Trevinator go over the crazy weekend that was. This is a unedited walk through of the events that you don't want to miss.
Its the SuperbowlDaytonaWorldSeriesNationalChampionshipFinals week bigger than any other sport. An entire week of professional wrestling all culminating in the Grandaddy of Them All Wrestlemania! Preview and predictions abound as Cody Kahne runs down the cards and gets predictions and some analysis from Johnny Legacy and ACO on Impact: United We Stand, nXt Takeover New York, NJPW/ROH G1 Supercard in MSG, and the big one Wrestlemania. A few bunnytrails come out of this one too and the guys decide what to discuss on next week's show towards the end. Give us your predictions.
Despite there being a chosen topic, things go off on the Bunny Trails style when Cody Kahne and Johnny Legacy sit down with the returning Tommy Gun Tommy. They start discussing releases and meander through multiple topics including renaming wrestlers, the current state of companies, the happenings around New Japan's latest round of shows and much more.
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.)
Cody Kahne sits down with both Johnny Legacy and then ACO to kick around the Mt. Rushmore of tag-teams. Who made the cut that shouldn't have? Who didn't make the cut that should have? Which still active team made not just one but two of the guys Mt Rushmore? Its all so subjective there is no way to please everyone. What are your thoughts?
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.
