The boys are back with another episode of Three Way Theater! It’s not just any episode though, as Lumberjake has put together the ultimate playlist of pro wrestlers appearing on Daytime Talk shows! Mike, Lumbie, and JC check out special episodes of The Jenny Jones Show, Martha Steward Living, Sally Jessy Raphael and a double does of DONAHUE, DONAHUE, DONAHUE!
As the boys enjoy the dog days of Summer they’re joined by podcaster and ring announcer extraordinaire Adam Salzer (@TheSalzerEffect) as they review WWF Summerslam 1992 headlined by Bret “Hitman” Hart defending the Intercontinental Championship against “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith.
After our brief foray into the heroes of pro wrestling we’re back with the second half of our epic review of the Netflix Original SeriesGLOW and it’s fabulous second season. After a slow start, the final 5 episodes of GLOW blew us away, with payoff after payoff as the show continued to subvert expectations and knock it out of the park at every turn.
It’s one of the most anticipated episodes ever of Best in Show as we take a break from GLOW to sit down and power through what many consider ‘the worst PPV of all-time’ in the Heroes of Wrestling! Joining Mike, Lumberjake, and JC on this journey of sadomasochism is none other than The Abominable CPA, one of wrestling’s best kept secrets AND Vince Russo’s favorite wrestler.
It’s the Big Three Oh on Three Way Theater as Mike, Lumberjake, and JC celebrate thirty episodes with our first ever WATCH-ALONG as we watch the documentary Beyond the Mat, directed by longtime wrestling fan Barry Blaustein.
While we had the best of intentions to record a Best in Show this past week (sorry Adam!), things didn’t end up going our way. Luckily for us recent inductee into the New England Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame Beau Douglas was hanging about, and foolishly agreed to let us interview him.
Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Doctor Sam Beckett led an elite group of scientists into the desert to develop a top secret project, known as QUANTUM LEAP. Pressured to prove his theories or lose funding, Doctor Beckett, prematurely stepped into the Project Accelerator and vanished. He awoke to find himself in the past, suffering from partial amnesia and facing a mirror image that was not his own. Fortunately, contact with his own time was made through brainwave transmissions, with Al, the Project Observer, who appeared in the form of a hologram that only Doctor Beckett could see and hear. Trapped in the past, Doctor Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, putting things right, that once went wrong and hoping each time, that his next leap will be the leap home… and not get murdered by Terry Funk.
It’s celebration time as we kick off Three Way Theater’s two year anniversary with a very special episode of Best In Show as we look back to the final Pay-Per-View of Extreme Championship Wrestling, ECW Guilty as Charged 2001! Joined by referee extraordinaire Rob “Buddy Christ” Greer (and Gay Tazz!) the boys look back on the sad demise of ECW and try to reconcile the ECW they loved with its final PPV from the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.
