    138 - Judgment Day 2008

    It's a game of Keep Away with the World Heavyweight Title on this week's Talking Taker! Join wrestling superfans Alex Doriot and Travis White on their journey through every Undertaker PPV match as they cover the next chapter of The Dead Man's rivalry with Edge and Vickie Guerrero and all the tricks they play on Taker heading into Judgment Day 2008. The Phenom is looking to begin a dominant reign over Smackdown thanks to "That Submission Maneuver". But Vickie and her Familia quickly use their power to dash those dreams and strip Taker of the gold. The heat is off the charts for this one, and we'll discuss just how hated La Familia was during this time. Along the way we'll also cover another showdown with The Great Khali, a Championship Chase with a perfectly booked ending, Teddy Long finally telling off Vickie, a month's worth of flubbed lines, Mick Foley coming for Travis's King Of Dad Jokes crown, the bizarre logic of the WWE's board of directors, Vickie Guerrero's first ever match, and so much more. Plus we'll preview the big Boneyard Match between The Undertaker and AJ Styles at this weekend's WrestleMania 36! Download, enjoy, and Taker Easy!

    137 - Royal Rumble 1993 Watch-Along

    The Undertaker and the Giant Gonzalez face off in a battle you wish you could forget on this week's special Talking Taker! Join wrestling superfans Alex Doriot and Travis White as they fill in one of the gaps on their journey through every Undertaker PPV match with yet another Royal Rumble Watch-Along, this time covering the 1993 battle royal extravaganza. As always, we'll give you the timestamp so you can watch the show in sync with our running alternate commentary - the perfect antidote to your coronavirus quarantine boredom. But we'll make just as entertaining if you can't actually watch the show with us. The Undertaker is continuing to establish himself in the early years of his career. And the World Wrestling Federation is on the precipice of changing forever as a little show called Monday Night Raw debuts just a few weeks before the Rumble. We'll discuss our memories of that and Taker's important role in the main event of that show before we get into our commentary. As the match goes along we'll cover the likes of Bob Backlund (and his epic reaction shots), Ric Flair, The Nasty Boys (and their manic energy), friend of the show Papa Shango, Yokozuna, Jerry The King Lawler, Macho Man Randy Savage, Damien Demento, Tenryu, the "youngster" Carlos Colon, Ted Dibiase, Virgil, I.R.S., Tatanka, the Natural Disasters, El Matador, and so many more!

    136 - Backlash 2008

    The Undertaker and Edge continue their rivalry and we continue our podcast through a global pandemic! Join wrestling superfans Alex Doriot and Travis White as they continue their journey (while social distancing, of course) through every Undertaker PPV match and cover a World Heavyweight Title rematch at Backlash 2008 between Taker and Edge. Edge and Vickie Guerrero's romance continues to be a thorn in The Dead Man's side. But it's "that deadly submission" which is truly wreaking havoc across Smackdown. We'll review their match in depth, plus along the way we'll cover The Undertaker's act of respect towards Ric Flair, a rare babyface battle between the Brothers Of Destruction, the formation of La Familia, the debut of Bam Neely (who?), Edge and Vickie's spa day (and Teddy Long being forced to watch), more awesome matches against Batista, Smackdown's new color commentator, another ECW appearance, a poorly timed Kid Rock song, and The Undertaker vs. Festus! Plus we'll also give our thoughts on The Undertaker and The O.C.'s empty arena contract signing from Raw this week. Download, enjoy, wash your hands, and Taker Easy!

    The Undertaker goes for 16 and 0 - and we go 2 on 1 with The Dead Man himself! Join wrestling superfans Alex Doriot and Travis White on their journey through every Undertaker PPV match as they record a special "live" episode of the show from their hotel in New York discussing one of Taker's greatest WrestleMania matches as he faces Edge for the World Heavyweight Championship. This nearly year-long rivalry comes to a head in epic fashion under the Orlando sky as the main event at one of the most spectacular PPVs the WWE ever produced. We'll.cover the importance of this match for both men's careers and why it holds a special place in our hearts. Plus we'll cover all the build including Edge's peak heel work, a casket match rewind with Mark Henry, more blood from "that unnamed submission", an awesome old school cage match that crosses over with the Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels rivalry, the repeated lie about Edge's "undefeated" streak, another funeral for The Dead Man, and so much more. 
     
    Then Alex and Travis recap their whirlwind 24 hour trip to The Big Event in New York to finally meet The Undertaker! After 2 and a half years of podcasting and 30 years of fandom, we got to shake Taker's hand and tell him about our show. It may have only lasted 30 seconds but we made the most of it and we'll tell you all about it, including his incredible response when he found out about the only podcast dedicated solely to his career. We also got a chance to spend a few minutes with friend of the show The Godfather who finally put to rest the story of Undertaker's Survivor Series 2000 pants! We'll discuss all that and more at the end of the show, so stay tuned all the way through. Download, enjoy, and Taker Easy!

5 Tombstone Rating!

Excellent podcast, Alex and Travis do a great job bringing you through the Undertaker’s career PPV match by PPV match. They are two “wrestling buddies” as Alex always says, that have a great rapport with each other, which makes for great conversation and listening. Even if you’re not a super Undertaker fan, check out this podcast if you’re just a wrestling fan, because there’s plenty of guest appearances from over 30 years of destruction! Enjoy and ‘Taker Easy!
