This week on Wrestle Buddies, GameSpot’s professional wrestling podcast, Chris E. Hayner and Mat Elfring are joined by a very special guest, look back on one of the best WWE pay-per-view events of all time, and learn all about how referees work–the rules are ridiculous.
First up, ahead of WWE’s Extreme Rules–and the “eye for an eye match” that will surely be a future segment of the podcast–we look back at 2005’s ECW One Night Stand. It’s the show that led to WWE relaunching ECW as its own brand. Don’t hold that against the show, though, because it’s truly one of the best events you’ll ever watch.
Next up, class is back in session as Professor Elfring teaches Chris and the audience about wrestling referees and all of the weird rules that they have to follow–including being incredibly weak. The role of the referee is a strange one, but also possibly more important than any wrestler in a given match.
Finally, we are pleased to welcome WWE superstar The Big Show to the podcast to look back on his time as a member of the Dungeon of Doom. Don’t know what the Dungeon of Doom is? Luckily for you, we covered it in a previous episode. Mat recently interviewed Show about his new Netflix series and couldn’t help himself when it came to talking about this amazing piece of wrestling history.
All of that can be heard in our latest episode above, plus a new installment of Mike or Meg or Dan’s Soapbox with GameSpot’s Dan Auty, your questions, and a look at what noted vampire warrior professional wrestler Gangrel is up to this week in Gangrel watch!
New episodes of Wrestle Buddies are released every Thursday. You can check it out on Spotify, Stitcher, and Apple Podcasts.
