Hey, everybody.

At the moment we’re having problems with the comments here.

Johnny P has hired a crack team to get it resolved.

In the meantime, if you have a comment about any of the shows please email it to upnorthradio@gmail.com

I’ll post them once the comments are fixed.

New Best and Worst of WWE Audio

Posted on January 25, 2014 by Rick Finch

4 Comments

In the land of people who don’t watch WWE, the man who watches some is king.

Brian from Texas walks me through the minefield that is July – December 2013 WWE.

We review the polls, pit the winners against each other and admire the results.

Plus a SNME Classic Clip, and Part One of the Best of the Best – audio clips from our 2013 shows!

—Part Two of Best of the Best will main event the TNA version, coming as soon as I can edit it.

The Classic Clip link probably won’t work for our U.S. listeners (THANKS WWE Network!) but here it is just in case.

***Vote in the Comments Section for the overall Best and Worst thing of 2013.***

-
Best

Mark Henry’s fake retirement, beat down of Cena, and promo afterward.

vs

Goldust’s 2013 career renaissance.  Best matches in his 25-year run.

Worst

The Miz as the new Ric Flair.  Absolutely terrible babyface.

vs

We Don’t Believe in Bryan: Weeks away from PPV main event, Bryan portrayed as ineffectual weakling against Show. Show cries, knowing his move could certainly murder helpless little Bryan, #1 contender.

-

Enjoy the show!

It’s been a while since I’ve actually sat down to write something. I’ve just been busy with life and its many distractions (some of them by surprise) in between attending shows, watching DVDs, and doing the occasional podcast with Steve, Finch, and company. So it’s about high time I talk about what I’ve been watching… and loving. (more…)
