What a crazy week this has been! Needless to say, we talked all about Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns and the Royal Rumble match! We also might have ANOTHER Match Of The Year Candidate on our hands! After the lengthy WWE talk, we did touch on NXT and Lucha Underground! Has Lucha Underground finally done something that we didn’t like? Then we announced a new listener-interaction activity that we will be starting up next which should be pretty exciting!

The weary traveler has returned home to bring us tales of excitement and intrigue! Or more like Chris is back and he has stories about TNA in NYC, the 2nd Mick Foley comedy show in Houston, and the WWE Live Event in the Toyota Center. After that, we did our full Royal Rumble preview where we gave of predictions and anticipation levels for the show! We looked at our #AnswerHWR responses, and based on that, we might have another Match Of The Year Candidate!

In this week’s episode, Travis has a whole heap of criticisms for TNA’s launch of Destination America. We gushed over the Aztec Warfare episode of Lucha Underground, but we need your help to decide weather or not a match like this should even be considered for Match Of The Week at all. Chime in your opinion with #AnswerHWR on Facebook and Twitter. We then talked all about The Authority, Brock, Rollins,Dean Ambrose, The Ascension and Daniel Bryan from WWE programming this week. After that, we had a great interview with third generation wrestler, grand-daughter of Joe Blanchard and daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Tully Blanchard, the upcoming Tessa Blanchard. She has a big match at this weekend’s Lonestar Championship Wrestling event with champion Barbi Hayden! Tessa has a budding career and we enjoyed talking to her and we hope you enjoy listening!

This is the first episode of 2015! And the year started with a bang thanks to New Japan’s Wrestle Kingdom 9! That was a heck of an event and me might already have a Match Of The Year Candidate coming out of it! But then we had to watch RAW afterwards… that really took the wind out our sails. WWE really stumbled out of the gates. Then we got to discuss some of the awesome things that are going to happen in the Houston indie scene in the next couple months! Oh yeah, and Chris wasn’t with us in this episode because he was in NYC attending the TNA tv taping!

Here are our 2014 Year In Review Episodes! We intended to make it one episode, but there was so much to discuss, that it was about 3 hours long in total. Thus, we had to break it up into two parts! In Part 1 we discussed all the big stories from WWE, TNA, Lucha Underground, NXT and much more! In Part 2 we discussed our Match Of The Year! We then also passed out other awards like Wrestler Of The Year, Shocking Moment Of The Year and others! It was a great year and we had a fun time discussing it!

What a crazy week in the world of wrestling! Hope everybody enjoyed the Thanksgiving weekend! We sure did with the news that CM Punk finally broke his silence regarding his departure from WWE on the Colt Cabana Art of Wrestling podcast! Then after RAW, Vince McMahnon was a guest on the Steve Austin podcast! In this episode, we give our reactions to both interviews! It made form some lively discussions among the HWR crew! We also briefly previewed the ROH Final Battle ppv and quickly touched on Lucha Underground, NXT and TNA. After all that, we had a tell-all interview of our own! Tony Brooklyn, former part-owner of the NWA and promoter of the now former “NWA Houston” promotion joined us to discuss what happened to cause him to leave the NWA, the re-branding to LoneStar Championship Wrestling, his partnering with Clutch City Productions and the future for him and his promotion! This was a good week for wrestling podcasts and ours was no different! This is a must listen episode!

We hope everyone is having an awesome Thanksgiving week! We decided to have a “short” episode this week. We reviewed Survivor Series and the RAW after. Then we had brief chatter about NXT, TNA and Lucha Underground! It might have been a smaller episode, but good things still come in small packages, right Chris?

Here is this week’s main weekly show! It’s a little late because we released a special edition episode for our #HWRRoadTrip to ROH’s Glory By Honor XIII in San Antonio. This episode is business as usual with our predictions for Survivor Series, a look at TNA, NXT and we might have even found another Match of The Year Candidate from Lucha Underground! Also, there is some interesting things afoot in the local indie scene that we touched on! And if you’re a fan of our silly homemade commercials, there is a very special one, for a very special item in this episode!

This weekend we had another #HWRRoadTrip to San Antonio for ROH’s Glory By Honor XIII! We had an awesome time there and we documented our trip with this special edition podcast! ROH really hooked us up with some fantastic interviews: WarMachine (Hanson and Raymond Rowe), The Kingdom (Adam Cole, Taven, Mike Bennett and Maria), Frankie Kazarian and ACH!!! All of the interviews were awesome and we got some great stories on tape from these guys! Also, we had some of our friends/listeners chime in and give their oponion on the show. And of course we gave our rundown of the show as well. Big thanks go out to ROH for working with us on this one!
