Chikara: The Renaissance Dawns and Total Divas

Continuing our glacially-paced series of bonus episodes, we discuss the very first Chikara show, The Renaissance Dawns. Which was so long ago that Ultramantis is wearing red and Colt Cabana isn't even funny. Then we spend almost as long talking about recent episodes of Total Divas, because how could we not? The Chikara discussion is hopefully interesting even if you haven't seen the show, but if you want to skip ahead, the Total Divas convo begins at 01:02:50.

Live from King of Trios 2016!

Live to tape from a hotel room in Bethlehem PA! It's our King of Trios special! Featuring guests Kieran Shiach, Helena Hart, Aidan Sullivan, and Chris Sims. We recorded on night two, so that's as far as our spoilers go. But we have a lot of feelings about Sendai Girls, Team Original Divas Revolution, Mustache Mountain, Missile Assault Man, Vlad Radinov, Jigsaw, and lots more. Thoughts on our favorite matches and at least one that didn't work for us.

Listen to our guests' many podcasts: Journey into Misery, Animal Crackers, Zero Hour, War Rocket Ajax, Movie Fighters, and Sailor Business.

  • For $15 or more, ask us any wrestling related question and we'll answer it.
  • For $30 or more, name any PPV or other event and we'll watch and discuss it.

Matches and events will need to be free on YouTube, or on the WWE Network or Chikaratopia. Just leave a comment with your donation to make your request, or get in touch with us on Twitter.


You'll hear plenty more about our fundraiser in the days to come, but for now we hope you enjoy this special episode.
