NorCal and I break down Extreme Rules, talk about some NXT news and look at the week’s top stories. We even disagree about something for once.
Extreme Rules 2015
Date: April 26, 2015
Location: Allstate Arena, Rosemont, Illinois
Commentators: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, John Bradshaw Layfield
It’s time for the night of Wrestlemania rematches, which often makes for a very entertaining card. The main event will see Seth Rollins defending the World Title against Randy Orton inside a cage with the RKO banned and Kane guarding the door. We also have Roman Reigns vs. Big Show in a last man standing match and Rusev vs. Cena III in a Russian chain match. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Extreme Rules 2015: Extremely…..Something
In a non-title match on the pre-show. Wasn’t the Tag Team Title match on the pre-show already? If there are two matches there, we have a six match pay per view card. That’s an awfully thin show, but maybe Nikki vs. Naomi can go 15 minutes or so.
You know what we haven’t had in a long time in WWE? Continue Reading »Thought of the Day: It’s Been A While
This isn’t going to be the longest one in the world as NorCal and I already did the full podcast preview for this show. In case you didn’t listen to that show for some reason (and you should.

After a week off due to Thanksgiving, we’re back for one of the final live Thunders as the tapings would soon move to Tuesday nights. In other words, this might be the last “good” show in the series’ run. We’re less than three weeks away from Starrcade and the World Title scene is very slowly rounding into form. Unfortunately everything else is rounding into form and it’s not a pretty sight. Let’s get to it. Continue Reading »Thunder – December 2, 1999: As Close As They Can Get
The show gets WAY more streamlined this week as we have our first pay per view preview with a look at Extreme Rules 2015, complete with a little fantasy booking, Dixie Carter’s face on chocolates and of course a fire on a life raft. Come check us out as we run down the post Wrestlemania pay per view offering.
Also keep in mind that we’ll be back with an Extreme Rules fallout show the same night.
Let me know what you think.

This is a special episode, focusing on the Knockouts. We’ll be seeing new Knockouts debut, a Knockouts Title match with Taryn Terrell defending against Awesome Kong, a four way for the #1 contendership and an announcement on Mickie James’ in ring future. In non-Knockouts news, we have another announcement from Ethan Carter III and Kurt Angle defending the World Title against Eric Young. Let’s get to it.
