Episode 62 - WWE Backlash 2018

On this episode of HDTGB comedian, Bryan Penn returns to join Zane & Jake to discuss a much longer pro wrestling show NOT held in a rec center, WWE Backlash 2018. This podcast is a long one but it covers a lot of ground maybe more ground than what Backlash 2018 covers. Such ground as Zane & Jake opinions on the current product, Bryan’s podcasting career which a third of it consists of How Did This Get Booked episodes & a Dragon Ball Z podcast with Zane in the middle of this podcast and why Jake views his wrestling career as a complete and utter failure. You know the usual. Hopefully you stick around for the full 2 hours to find out if the guys are shameless corporate shills OR clickbait trolls who hate everything.

Episode 60 - STING: Moment of Truth

Zane & Jake watched a 15 minute movie inside of a compilation of montages made with pirated footage entitled,  STING: Moment of Truth. Not only is this movie full of montages its jam packed full of wrestler cameos. Some of which were completely unnecessary unlike the much needed explanation of Sting’s brother, Jeff. Who may or may not have risen from the dead. This video release is noteworthy because it maybe one of the few christian based movies that doesn’t involve Kirk Cameron. And Lord knows this movie could have used Mike Seaver playing the part of Jim Hellwig

Episode 59 - GLOW Season 2

Thankfully Alison Brie didn’t take a ambien and started making racist tweets so we could see season 2 of GLOW. Jake & Zane have a lot to cover on this episode from the wrestling to the emotional journey of all the characters to Jake’s love of dark skinned women. Sam Sylvia maybe Jake & Zane’s spirit animal but find out who is the Debbie and who is the Ruth in these two men’s friendship together.

Episode 58 - WWE Most Embarrassing Moments (12/15/87)

In this episode of HDTGB comedian, Alex Spears isn’t embarrassed at all to join Zane & Jake to discuss WWE Most Embarrassing Moments. This episode continues along with HDTGB’s investigation into the Coliseum Home Video library on the WWE Network. We say investigation because there are moments in this video that are just as problematic as, Sixteen Candles. Such moments as the usage of a Hard Ys, The W word and dick grabbing that predates Joey Ryan’s dick “Killed the Business”. Luckily, there was no huffing of spray paint on the video but the same cannot be said for Alex, Zane  & Jake. So, good luck listening to this one when everyone on the episode was high AF.

Episode 57 - ACW Wrestling’s Wildest Matches

On this episode of HDTGB comedian and fellow podcaster Brian O’ Neil joins Zane & Jake to discuss ACW Wrestling’s Wildest Matches otherwise known as the Freddie Valentine Best of DVD. The building in this video will look very familiar and considering the types of matches ACW had there it’s surprising that pro wrestling was even allowed back in that building. Rattlesnakes, Japanese Suicide Matches and Electrified Fence Matches that were fixed in post. Not even Terry Funk whipping someones ass could save this video release. Thankful Brian can find the beauty and wonder in all of Freddie Valentine’s work.

Episode 56 - Big Japan’s Grocery Store Death Match

On this episode of HDTGB comedian Paul Baeza takes a trip to the grocery store with Zane and Jake to see a death match. This show should really be called, Kendo Nagasaki beats the shit out of 2 young boys while 2 other guys have the most adorable fight ever. Not only is this a odd booking for a wrestling match it’s also a odd booking for a Japanese marching band that only knows patriotic American Anthems. Rested assured on this episode of How Did This Get Booked if the salmonella doesn’t get you Kendo Nagasaki will.

Episode 55 - Day of the Warrior

Day of the Warrior is a Softcore Porn starring Buff Bagwell. Do we need to put anything else in this description? This movie was made for this podcast. If it wasn’t then we have no clue why this movie was made. Day of the Warrior is a part of the legendary filmography of Andy Sidaris. How Did This Get Made may have covered another Sidaris classic, Hard Ticket to Hawaii but How Did This Get Booked is all over Day of the Warrior. Much liked that paint that Buff Bagwell smeared all over a naked women in his “love scene”.

Episode 54 - RAW Bowl

In this episode of HDTGB comedian Evan Pittfield returns to huddle up with Zane & Jake and score a touchdown with the RAW Bowl. FOOTBALL PUNS!!! DEAL WITH IT!!! This hour long episode of Monday Night RAW almost rekindled Jake & Zane’s childhood love affair with professional wrestling while Evan remains unmoved by pro wrestling. But those Football Puns tho. This episodes does raise a serious question, Does Vince McMahon know the differences between the NCAA & NAACP? One thing is for sure we are lucky to have the Raw Bowl on the network and in our lives in general. As we see in this episode we are also lucky that Triple H didn’t die from Trichinosis. Make sure you take a time out and listen to this week’s episodes of How Did This Get Booked on the RAW Bowl. FOOTBALL PUNS!!!

Episode 53 - Andre the Giant

On this episode of HDTGB Jake & Zane discuss the very recently released HBO Sports documentary, Andre the Giant. But before the conversation on the documentary even starts Zane & Jake have to unpack their experiences at last week’s WrestleCon. Also, Jake has to share a story about how he had to go all Barry Darsow so some of the possible footage in this documentary could even see the light of day. Both men seem to love the Andre the Giant documentary and are very so so about the Mini Doc on Hulk Hogan that is right in the middle of this movie.

Episode 52 - WWF Funniest Moments (2/27/91)

On this episode of HDTGB comedian Eik Eikenberry returns to join Zane & Jake as they continue down Coliseum Home Video Memory Lane with WWF Funniest Moments. Little known fact but the title of this home video release has a grammar error in it. Yeah, the title should have a question mark at the end of it. This video should have been called “A Really Long Rhythm & Blues match, Buddy Rose Squash Match, Promo “Gold” with The Bushwhackers & WAY Too Much Gobbledy Gooker. This has to be the worst Coliseum Home Video release EVER. But it is less than an hour long and that is why we watch it for this week’s episode of How Did This Get Booked ?!?

Episode 51 - WWF: Brains Behind the Brawn

On this episode of HDTGB comedian, Crystalle Ramey returns to discuss another Coliseum Home Video release, Brains Behind the Brawn. We can’t remember what show Crystalle reviewed last time so we don’t know if this is a step up or not but there is definitely more Bobby “The Brain” Heenan involved in this episode. In fact, the title of this video could be The Best of Bobby “The Brain” Heenan  or  “Bobby “The Brain” Heenan Dabbles Around in the Slave Trade. Jake is barely holding it together after being sleep deprived all week but he does come up with a million dollar idea that surely someone will steal. But sometimes you have to Face the Facts. Even though Jake is in a tailspin Zane feels it is good time to test their friendship. Thankfully Crystalle is there to be the Miss Elizabeth to these two Mega Powers.

Episode 50 - WWF: Bloopers, Bleeps and Bodyslams

 

On this episode of HDTGB comedian, Mimi Benfield returns to discuss a much shorter show. Bloopers, Bleeps and Bodyslams is Coliseum Home Video 001 and boy are we surprised they made more of them. Luckily Mimi was here for this one so she could share her thoughts about Adrian Adonis haunting Rowdy Roddy Piper. Jake also recalls a story he heard from Tony Atlas himself and no its not about feet. Because of this video Zane now has a new code word for a drunk and unruly customer at his bar which now will be referred to as a, Captain Lou Albano. Dicks, Butts and domestic assault is the comedy gold mine that Vince Killer McMahon was aiming for in this Coliseum Home Video classic.

Episode 49 - Billy Jack Haynes - The Conspiracy Theory

CAUTION: This episode contains very sensitive subjects that are discussed very poorly. 

On this episode of HDTGB podcaster, Ryan Howard joins Zane & Jake to discuss An Interview with a Psychopath otherwise known as Billy Jack Haynes - The Conspiracy Theory.  BOMBSHELL TONIGHT!!!  We had to bring a wrestling fan on for this one in hopes that the guest wouldn’t be too lost and that failed miserably.  Billy Jack is out of his mind but he maybe on to something when it comes to the Chris Benoit tragedy. To best explain this podcast you have to see the movie, Manhunter. Basically, Jake is Will Graham, Chris Benoit is the Francis Dollarhyde and Billy Jack Haynes is Hannibal Lecter. This analogy maybe more confusing than Jake’s whole theory. Either way do yourself a favor and watch Michael Mann’s Manhunter. This podcast you can take or leave unless you want to hear a never before discussed theory about the last days of Chris Benoit.

Episode 48 - FWE No Limits 2013

On this episode of HDTGB comedians Ramon Perez & Kaleigh Cutright join Zane & Jake to discuss a wholesome family wrestling show filled with “Holy Shit” chants entitled, Family Wrestling Entertainment No Limits 2013.  This podcast is filled with voice masking filters, physical act outs and plugs for Tom Segura’s new Netflix special, Disgraceful. All the things you would expect from a podcast release. Unfortunately all the Brooklyn hipsters that came out to this show will not be listening to this episode because it’s not produced by WNYC studios. Which is fine with us because they may get triggered by the shots that are fired by Kaleigh Cutright at Maria Kanellis. You have been warned. Also seriously please make sure you watch Tom Segura’s new Netflix special, Disgraceful.

Episode 47 - Birth Of The Great Muta

On this episode of HDTGB comedian Matthew McCorkle joins Zane & Jake to discuss a Tape Trader Must Have in, The Birth of the Great Muta. Poor Matt, had never seen professional wrestling before in his entire life and for this podcast he was given a “Best of” tape that had one of the weirdest short films bookending the video. Needless to say Matt will not be joining the IWC anytime soon. But Matt was able to recognize that what he was watching was good it was just super weird. Jake & Zane try to explain whats going to Matt but he still has to look at Wikipedia during the podcast just to make sense of it all.

Episode 46 - NWC Total Chaos

Not only is this tape chaotic it is full of salacious allegations. Numerous BuzzFeed headlines could be pulled from this podcast such as, Where did Virgil get his Fuck Money, NWC: The Leading Promotion in Fights with Audience Members and Terry Funk, Huge Fan of Ass Play.  Also this podcast contains a ton of trampoline wrestling talk so buckle up for another episode of How Did This Get Booked.

Episode 45 - Santa With Muscles

To get into the holiday spirit Zane & Jake decide to watch the 1996 Christmas classic, Santa With Muscles… and it was a horrible mistake. This movie was only in theaters for two weeks but the scars from this movie will live forever. This movie does launch a few careers but it ends far more. Although, this movie is ahead of its time in a few areas like, a crazy jacked billionaire like Jeff Bezos, using Piezoelectricity as a renewable energy source and the militarization of the police. The guys try to muddle through the plot while saluting the true hero of this movie, Hulk Hogan's personal hair stylist.
