    We Believe In Joe Hendry!

    We Believe In Joe Hendry!

    Say his name and he appears! So we did, and now Joe Hendry makes his TIJ debut! He shares the story (and pitch to Jimmy Jacobs) behind his initial vignettes and gimmick, and explains how a short-lived telesales job, a few words from Eric Young, and a lesson in songwriting from Queen solidified his act. He talks about the text exchange with TNA that changed his life, how a couple of very well-placed billboards outside the Hydro in Glasgow may have led to his recent NXT appearance, and why being forced to sit home for 2 years during the pandemic ultimately saved his wrestling career. Joe has tales about wrestling Kurt Angle, cutting promos with Shawn Michaels, having a hit song on the charts thanks to Matt Cardona, how he’s come to main event the TNA Slammiversary PPV with Moose, and why he is convinced that he will find himself in the ring with John Cena next year.

    Dani Mo Elevates Pro Wrestling In Nepal

    Dani Mo Elevates Pro Wrestling In Nepal

    Dani Mo recently set the world record for the highest elevation women’s pro wrestling match after journeying to Nepal to wrestle on Kala Patthar in the Mt Everest region. Dani wrestled Nepal’s first-ever women’s professional wrestler, Baghawait Unika at 5,600 meters in a homemade wrestling ring carried up the mountain on a helicopter! That’s roughly 18,300 feet or 3.4 miles ABOVE sea level! It’s higher than Mt. Everest base camp which is why they chose that location. Dani details the entire story from her initial invitation from Unika to her 22-hour journey to Kathmandu, Nepal to her harrowing flights in and out of the world’s most dangerous airport in the mountain town of Lukla! She explains what it was like to wrestle on uneven, rocky ground with very little oxygen, how she overcame the language barrier with her opponent, and the unbelievable reason why she had to overdub her promo once she got back to the States.

    Canada Day Winnipeggers Watchalong – Clifford!

    Canada Day Winnipeggers Watchalong – Clifford!

    Happy Canada Day, eh? And there’s no better way to celebrate than with a Winnipeggers reunion with a bonus Clifford! watchalong! We’re not talking about the big red dog though! We’re talking about the 10-year-old boy played by fellow Canadian legend, Martin Short! It’s a movie beloved by everyone from David Letterman to Nicholas Cage to… the Winnipeggers (at least one of them, but you’ll have to listen to find out which one). And of course, in true TIJ watchalong and Winnipeggers style, there’s plenty of casting and acting discussion, behind-the-scenes stories from the set, completely useless trivia, and a plethora (good word, eh?) of tangential (another good word, eh?) anecdotes and references like perms, Fargo, bow ties, birthdays, cameo, post-pimple days, milk, mullets, and first-times. And… take a drink for every obscure reference (but please don’t drive, eh?)!

Ravage Ryan ,

Variety of Jericho

I mostly listen to this show because I want to hear about wrestling related topics. I’m surprised at how many times I have enjoyed shows with other subjects. I have heard some really interesting stories about serial killers, aliens, and cults. I don’t usually like the ones about rock bands so I mostly skip them. All around great show!

BlocSeekr ,

It’s been an honor to watch the descent

From a guy who I would have put on my Mt Rushmore to 300lbs of washed up MAGA trash cosplaying as a pro wrestler.

If you weren’t such an alcoholic you’d feel shame for the state you’re in.

Karen Conti ,

Thanks for having me as a guest

Great job! Keep up the good work.
