    Wrestling Omakase #239: Survivor Series Retro Roulette w/ Liam

    Wrestling Omakase #239: Survivor Series Retro Roulette w/ Liam

    This week on Wrestling Omakase we take a completely randomized look back at WWE's late November/Thanksgiving tradition, Survivor Series!

    John is joined by first time guest & VOW contributor Liam Byrne (@tvtimelimit), who as we discuss probably sets some kind of record for "most Omakase guests with the same first name". Liam goes into his history as a fan and why he maybe hasn't appeared on an episode until now, and John makes a quick little detour to talk about their trip to the new UBS Arena this past Wednesday at Belmont (an arena that will soon host two wrestling shows over the next couple weeks!). Once that's all out of the way they get into this episode's randomly selected six matches from six randomly selected years of Survivor Series- if you want to be surprised you should stop reading now and go ahead and listen, but otherwise here they are below (all can be found on Peacock in the US and WWE Network in the rest of the world):

    1987: Randy Savage, Ricky Steamboat, Jake Roberts, Jim Duggan & Brutus Beefcake vs. The Honky Tonk Man, Hercules, King Harley Race, Ron Bass & Danny Davis
    1990: Hulk Hogan, The Big Bossman, Jim Duggan & Tugboat vs. Earthquake, Haku, The Barbarian & Dino Bravo
    1998: Steve Austin vs. Big Bossman
    2000: The Rock vs. Rikishi
    2003: Eddie & Chavo Guerrero vs. Doug & Danny Basham
    2016: Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg

    Topics that come up along the way include: how weird is it that we got randomly assigned the very first match in Survivor Series history, Randy Savage's first face turn, a couple wrestlers who usually get ragged on manage to look pretty good here, Hulk Hogan is still extremely over, the future Natural Disasters collide (but not really), the history of the Deadly Game tournament, is this the best thing Vince Russo ever did, inconsistent heel authority figure logic, Rikishi's disaster of a heel turn, Rock does everything in his power to make his cousin look like a monster, the very strange Bashams/Shaniqua gimmick, incredible creepy spots in hindsight, the start of the second brand split, the strange build up for Brock vs. Goldberg, and finally: WWE booking critiques that look kinda pointless in hindsight.

Support VoW except Jumping Bomb Audio

-1 star because they carry Jumping Bomb Audio Podcast on their feed

VoW is, in my opinion, one of the more reputable wrestling websites when it comes to stories and recaps - but my goodness the knuckleheads VoW have put in charge to host their Joshi content are unlistenable. I question how much they actually watch Joshi wrestling outside of buzzworthy matches, ChocoPro, and Diana (of all promotions?!?).

Diana is fine and all but I think like 3 matches made one of their hosts top 10 moty - silliness. I understand watching the lesser known companies to build some sort of credibility but 3 top 10 MOTY candidates for Diana shows the complete lack of care in actually covering the scene while focusing just on ‘my favorite promotion you never heard of.’ Hipster punditry and it’s not even done well.

Additionally, the podcast drops roughly every two weeks where they admit they don’t watch parts of shows they’re recapping and make unfounded claims with no proof such as ‘Bushiroad is looking to sell Stardom’. This seems to be their M.O. as they make other ridiculous claims on their AEW podcast except there’s at least someone there to fact check them on their nonsense.

This type of lack of willingness to learn about what’s actually happening in Joshi while providing absurd takes with no merit would be fine for a fan-made podcast but not for the VoW website. Not what I’ve come to expect from the quality of VoW over the last year. I hope whomever is in charge looks at this show and shakes up the hosts - complete disservice to the fanbases of these promotions, wrestlers within these promotions and any fans who may be interested in learning more about Joshi.

Much better content out there via google search - do not waste your time.

Taking their own CREDIBILITY to the task!

Guys I discovered the show several weeks ago & have throughly enjoyed EVERYTHING. Look, let’s be HONEST: PPL who are super fans of this business in, this Business
Most Fans just BELIEVE whatever they hear described in a controversial situations as
It’s STILL Funny how💯 % Gospel if I came MELTER or KELLER.
Who because of the newsletters, the
small in # towns, and tape traders:
MELTZER/KEELER were FREE to operate
in whatever way they saw fit.
UNTIL...... JOE and RICH popped up on
My Apple Toones. What a Blessing.
Keep up the good and if you need a someone to write any articles from you I’m
VERY very good at my profession.
THANKS GUYS and 🌚🌚🌚🌚
