    Dear good people!

    In i-tunes your podcast-title (not the episode)
    shows up as “no title” – can you maybe repair this?

    Dear good people!

    The OSWP-Podcast in iTunes Shows up as “no title”
    (the podcast, not the ppisode).

    Can someone maybe fix this?

  3. Buzz Tyler's Idol says:

    The Falcons player who got arrested the night before the Super Bowl was safety Eugene Robinson. He received some kind of award (don’t remember exactly) for exemplary character then was arrested the same night for soliciting a prostitute.

    • Buzz Tyler's Idol says:

      Did a little more research on this. Robinson received the Bart Starr Award for leadership and character. Ironically, he is now a broadcaster for the Panthers and has cautioned the players about what caused “the worst night of my life.”

  4. Milldog311 says:

    I’ve met Steve Corino at an independent show. Total class act. Was of course wearing a suit at his merch table before his match. I think he and Kevin Steen are the two nicest wrestlers I have met. Kind of ironic considering how “EVIL” they are.


  5. Joe from Big Bean says:

    Really great episode. As mention in Bret Hart’s book reason why Mania move to L.A. Sports Arena because ticket sells for the L.A. Coliseum were lacking then Vince wanted. PS I hope when you do Mania 19 you can bring out the “Most-wanted Iraqi playing cards” with Hussein as the ace of spades.

  6. Cory says:

    Just discovered this site. Great work, guys.

  7. The burning zone says:

    It turns out slaughter was not an honorable champion as Savage never got his title shot until wrestlemania 7 against Ric Flair
