v2 Wrestling Podcast 26th August: Hardcore Wrestling, Bookers and Dean Ambrose
August 27, 2014 01:47 AM PDT
This week Adam is joined by Chris, Gavin and Richard to discuss the latest big stories in wrestling.
We start as ever with TNA, and some interesting big picture discussion, from bringing back a hardcore division to which ex-wrestlers could be useful additions to the booking team. The question of Lo Ki's ethnicity is taken to those in the know, and even they don't know. Meanwhile we get an update on MVP's latest off-air shenanigans.
It's then on to WWE, and one of the most mind-bogglingly boring episodes of Raw in history. But there is still plenty to digest, as we look at how each member of The Shield has progressed since their break-up, and Rich explains his obsession with Dean Ambrose.
Thanks for all your responses to our questions of the week. This week we ask whether anybody in the history of the world - other than Sheamus - has ever noticed the similarities between Sheamus and Cesaro? We'd also like to hear your comparisons between other wrestlers who have nothing in common.

August 22, 2014 02:52 AM PDT
This week, Adam is joined by Chris and Gavin to talk about the big wrestling news of the week.
We start off with TNA, where Bully Ray has apparently quit the company, but is it just setting up another shocking swerve? Meanwhile, MVP has been breaking character in Ferguson, and the debate about Lo Ki's ethnic origin continues.
Then it's on to WWE, and the memorable Summerslam pay-per-view. We discuss the booking of Cena vs Lesnar, along with the rest of the card. There's also an update on Alberto Del Rio's post-WWE career.

August 14, 2014 08:38 AM PDT
This week Adam is joined by Gavin to discuss all the big news of the week.
We start with a discussion about the table bump that Dixie Carter took on last week's TNA Impact, both from a critical and moral standpoint, before moving on to the rest of the show.
Then it's on to WWE, and the story that Alberto Del Rio was released after slapping a colleague for making a racist comment. Was Del Rio right in his actions, and were WWE justified for firing him?
Finally we look ahead to Summerslam, with predictions for every match on the card.

August 06, 2014 01:07 PM PDT
Welcome to the v2 Wrestling Podcast, as Adam is joined by Gavin and Paul to talk about the latest from WWE and TNA.
We begin with an exclusive, as Adam spoke with Bully Ray earlier in the evening. A discussion follows over Bully's comments about TNA spoiling its own product and comparisons to the ECW locker room.
Moving on to other topics, we address last week's Destination X special and look ahead to Bound For Glory.
Meanwhile over in WWE, the big feud leading into Summerslam appears to be Stephanie McMahon vs Brie Bella, which causes consternation among the team, and Adam is not very happy about the latest antics of a certain Rosebud, but everyone is in agreement about the build-up to Cena vs Lesnar.
Finally, we talk about the end of both WWE Magazine and the UK's long-running Powerslam magazine, left behind by a changing world.

July 23, 2014 01:02 PM PDT
Adam is joined by Chris, Paul and Rich to discuss this weeks latest action. Starting with TNA we discuss the first of the New York taped shows and how Taz intrigued us, but how TNA quickly managed to crush any hope back out! Adam gives his usual round up of all the Impact action and the team discuss the latest goings on and whether there is a genuine cause for optimism.
Moving onto matters WWE we have a thorough round up of the Battleground ppv, discussing what we all agreed was match of the night and the potential feuds for The Wyatts (who aren't Wyatts) and the Usos (who are Usos). Luckily Adam's patented Sandow section was limited to just a brief mention but Bo Dallas was the recipient of praise from the crew who all seem to be becoming Bolievers! A round up of the fallout on Raw and a look forward to the biggest event of the summer rounds up another action packed Podcast!v2 Wrestling Podcast 15th July: Jeff Hardy, Battleground and the never-ending Sandow debate
July 16, 2014 10:34 AM PDT
This week, the whole gang is back together to talk about the latest wrestling news.
Firstly, Adam offers his weekly run-down of TNA Impact, and everybody else offers their weekly ridicule of the show. This leads us to a debate about Jeff Hardy's value to the promotion, and where he should feature on the card.
We then move on to the coming weekend's WWE Battleground, and give our predictions for the card, but not before Adam's obsession with Damien Sandow rears its head once more. WWE's predilection for product placement is also addressed.

July 09, 2014 12:56 PM PDT
Welcome to another v2 Wrestling Podcast, as Adam is joined by Chris, Gavin and Paul to discuss the big news of the week and some very random topics.
We start with highlights of our exclusive recent interview with TNA star Abyss, followed by an analysis of what he brings to TNA and the best way the promotion can use him. Then it's on to other TNA matters, as Adam gives his usual run-down of last week's Impact, and everybody else offers their insight. Most importantly of all, we discuss the allure of Angelina Love.
Our conversation then turns to WWE, and a recent listener question about Damien Sandow. Somehow this is equated to Sting blacking up. Roman Reigns and John Cena's antics fuel our desire to see a gay babyface love story, while we recount our favourite memories of midgets and Vladimir Kozlov.
