SequelQuest Rewind | A Sequel to The Postman | EP32

April 24, 2020

(From January 2017)

In the present, the nation is uncertain about the inauguration of one of the most controversial president in American history. In the future, as presented by 1997's The Postman starring Kevin Costner, humanity is struggling to survive until one lone patriot (or compulsive liar) arises to establish the Restored United States of America out of post apocalyptic ruins.

So why are Justin, Jeff and Adam talking about creating a sequel to a 20 year old box office bomb? Because if SequelQuest doesn't do it, who will? We're doing our service to the country to help its citizens realize that we have it pretty good, as long as we're not being force fed "Mule Gruel" by former copy machine salesman turned dictators.

So join us as we pull this show out of a dusty old mail bag and tell you imaginary tales of rebuidling a nation with Kevin Costner as our leader. Hopefully we'll convince you that "stuff's getting better" and provide a few laughs along the way. Will The Postman 2 thrill, chill or bore you to death? Listen now and find out!

Spring is here but it's cold in your house! That's because on this week's episode we're heading to Canada. The fourth edition of the WWF pay per view series, In Your House, originating on October 22, 1995, at the Winnipeg Arena in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

We go through our memories of the event and try to get to the bottom of what really happened. Later we break down Goldust's debut match. The 1-2-3 Kid's slow heel turn. Did Dean Douglas get a raw deal in WWF? All of this and so much more.

Tonight's match card will be:

Hunter Hearst Helmsley vs. Fatu.

The Smoking Gunns (WWF Tag Team Champions) vs. The 1-2-3 Kid and Razor Ramon.

Goldust vs. Marty Jannetty.

King Mabel (with Sir Mo) vs. Yokozuna (with Jim Cornette and Mr Fuji).

The House Show 003 - In Your House 3: The Triple Header

April 16, 2020

The House Show returns! Join Kevin (@MaskedLibrary), "Sweet" Matty Treats (@MattyTreats), and the Educator of Excellence as we take a look at the third WWF pay per view under the In Your House banner.

For the first time ever, all three WWF titles will be on the line in the same match! It's the WWF world heavyweight champion Diesel teaming up with the Intercontinental champion Shawn Michaels as they challenge the WWF tag team champions Yokozuna and Owen Hart.

With four men in the main event, we needed four men to discuss the events of the evening. "The Masked Library" Kevin Decent, "Sweet" Matty Treats, and the Educator of Excellence are joined by longtime friend and living internet wrestling legend, Krone Meltzer.

In 2006, a young wrestling fan got into an argument on one of the biggest pro wrestling message boards of the day. He took this fight to the new media, YouTube. From there he became a phenomenon. Calling people out, breaking news, building his legend. Billed as the illegitimate son of wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer, Krone has been mostly silent for years. He joins the House Show this evening for his first viewing ever of the WWF at this time.

WWF In Your House: Triple Header took place September 24, 1995 from the Civic Center in Saginaw, Michigan. Just over five thousand fans and thousands more on pay per view watched the following matches that will be discussed on the podcast:

Savio Vega vs. Waylon Mercy.

Sycho Sid (with Ted DiBiase) vs. Henry O. Godwinn.

The British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith vs. Bam Bam Bigelow.

Dean Douglas (with Bob Backlund) vs Razor Ramon.

Bret Hart vs Jean Pierre Lafitte.

Two Dudes with Attitudes. Diesel (WWF champion) and Shawn Michaels (Intercontinental champion) vs. Yokozuna and Owen Hart (WWF Tag Team Champions) (with Jim Cornette and Mr Fuji)

But wait! The main event is in jeopardy. A story that continues throughout the evening. What happened? Who will win? Who is actually in the building and will be in your house?

The House Show podcast features The Retro Network's own Kevin Decent along with his two best friends Matt and Matt as they revisit WWF In Your House pay-per-view events from the '90s over the course of the worldwide quarantine. This trios team has been watching wrestling all their lives and debating the outcomes since high school. Join them each and every week and invite them in your house!
