Broken Freaking Neck Wrestling Podcast #12
Phew! After a massive weekend between a hot Summerslam and a stellar NXT TakeOver, Mike and Steve are back to break down all the action. We take a long look at the Fatal Four Way, and declare that with the work those four hosses put in, the main event is destined to go down as an all-time Summerslam favorite. While both of us are ready to sell on Jinder as champ, we explain why Nak taking the pinfall isn't the worst thing in the world and fans should pump the breaks on getting worried about the king of strong style getting buried. i mean, at least he's not Baron Corbin, who must be texting Stephanie for nudes if he's getting this much dirt thrown on his career. All this, plus Mike gives a quick recap of an outstanding NXT show. Follow us at Twitter: @BFNWrestleCast, @mike_snoonian, @steveleblanc76 New Site!

Broken Freaking Neck Wrestling Podcast #11
It's SummerSlam time y'all! The biggest party of the summer, and arguably the best show WWE puts on each year is this weekend and we have our preview. We put the upcoming show into contexts with this week's events including the reunion of 2/3 of The Shield, Demon Balor, the Fatal Four Way and Baron Corbin looking like the true #DumpsterFire that he is. Plus, was the opening of Smackdown a tone deaf and misguided effort given the current mood of the country and events in Charlottesville? (short answer: yes.)

Broken Freaking Neck Wrestling Podcast #10
It's been a pretty massive week in the WWE and Mike & Steve are back to dissect everything that's going on. We get the negative out of the way early with a brief rundown of the subpar Battleground (00:30-10:30). From the depths of Sunday night we move to a fantastic episode RAW that finds Braun Strowman throwing a hapless ring security guard about 500 feet. (10:31-31:50) As good as RAW was Smackdown was even better, bookended by the surprise return of Y2J and a fantastic main event the episode sets up a certifiable dream match between Cena and Nakamura for next week. All of that pales in comparison to a heated discussion beginning at 42:50 where Steve makes the argument that we're leaving in an age of boring entry music. Despite being presented with a staggering amount of evidence from the themes of Nakamura, Zayn, Roode, Owens, Balor and more, Steve admits he prefers the dulcet tones of the Too Sexy theme. A 20 minute donnybrook ensues. Also, Mike speculates on which member of the announce team might be a member of the KKK.

Broken Freaking Neck Wrestling Podcast #9
This week Shane McMahon survives a helicopter crash while Talking smack dies an undeserved death. With the unscripted show tossed aside, Mike & Steve look at what performers benefitted the most from the looser format. Plus: Kurt Angle is Jason Jordan's daddy in a storyline that can charitably be hailed as "unfortunate for all parties involved." On a brighter RAW note, the Seth/Dean/Miztourage angle has some steam, and the SummerSlam main event picture is looking fantastic. We also preview Backlash, which looks like the definition of a filler PPV. Will Lesnar stay with the WWE post 'mania? Addin some Game of Thrones talk and you've got yourself a show my friends.

Broken Freaking Neck Wrestling Podcast #8

Why isn't Reigns in police custody for attempted murder? Is Strowman the biggest baby face in the WWE after walking away from the wreckage? How high is Samoa Joe's ceiling. We also have a sobering talk about the Page/Del Rio disaster.

Broken Freaking Neck Podcast #5
This week Mike and Steve touch a little bit on Joe vs. Brock, as well as why Bailey just isn't working on the main roster. The main discussion, however, pertains to how TV viewing habits have changed, and how the WWE has gone away from the "must see" aspects of their programming for a strategy of just delivering as much content as possible to lure fans in. Is this smart or is this going to turn people off in the long run?

The Broken Freaking Neck Podcast Episode 4
We're back with another episode. This week, we've got some backlash for BACKLASH, including a critical look at a wasted main roster debut for Shinsuke Nakamura. What does the future hold for new WWE Champion Jinder Mahal: is this a short term thing, or is JinderMania about to run wild on the WWE? We examine why Mahal was put in the position he currently resides. Both Mike and Steve want more Breezeango, please and thank you. Over on RAW, who is the best man to face the Beast at Extreme rules, plus what hints did Heyman's promo with Finn Balor have in store for the Demon? We look back at the tragic passing of Owen Hart on the anniversary of his death and what a crazy time that was to be a fan.

Broken Freaking Neck Wrestling Podcast #3
This week on the Broken Freaking Neck Wrestling Podcast Mike& Steve weigh in on the Randy Orton/Indie Wrestling controversy and Orton's "sorry, not sorry" pseudo apology. We weigh in on why indie wrestlers have to set them selves apart from the giant machine that is the WWE and why Orton's not the best messenger to deliver a defense of the WWE house style of "sports entertaining." Mike briefly talks what made the Chip day/ Trevor Lee match so great. Also, we preview the upcoming BACKLASH pay per view, take more pot shots at the state of New Jeresy and discuss why RAW is giving away so many PPV quality main events on free television. Steve examines why Kevin Owens speaking french on television, along with Jinder's portrayal, reflects how Vince sees the typical wrestling fan's predilections in 2017. for your viewing pleasure, here's the link to the tremendous Chip Day/Trevor Lee match: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtAoeHVyutE If you like what you hear, please, please, please take a moment to leave us a review on iTunes as it goes a long way to helping others discover us in a sea of podcasts.

The Broken Freaking Neck Wrestling Podcast #2
Mike and Steve are back to discuss all things wrestling. With the WWE overseas in Jolly Old England, your tag team tandem looks at whether they delivered exciting action or head scratching results. Mike asks "What the hell is going on with Sami Zayn right now, and why is he being written to look like a Woody Allen cosplayer while Steve discusses the problem with Charlotte going babyface. Mike reviews the new Pete Gas autobiography "Looking At The Lights" and speculates that it may have been ghost written by Ernest Hemmingway. We ask the questions: Should Titus O'Neil be reprimanded for posting a private photo of heated rivals Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman paling around together in Europe? Why do you do with Strowman on the shelf for a month and are fans coming around on the idea of a Jinder Mahal title reign? As always your feed back is greatly appreciated.

Broken Freaking Neck Wrestling Podcast
Hello and welcome to the first ever "Broken Freaking Neck" wrestling podcast. For our debut episode hosts Mike and Steve break down last week's PAYBACK WWE event, including the hot pile of garbage that was the House of Horrors match and the sight of Randy Orton riding shirtless in a limo. We also have an in depth discussion on NXT and whether or not acts like Samoa Joe, Nakamura and Baron Corbin are well suited for the main roster, main event spotlight, or if Vince just won't "get" them in the long run. Along the way we talk about Bray Wyatt just not able to keep his promises (check out this video compiled by SkyRu1e which contrasts Bray promo with getting pinned right here). Steve also talks about the Star Wars/ Sgt. Pepper's mashup you didn't know you wanted or needed. Listen to it here. If you like what you've heard, please leave us a review on iTunes.
