Related news: The website has been re-jigged (we now have the ability to access ‘Next Page’) and we now have permission to use EVOLVE and Dragon Gate: USA clips, courtesy of the man in charge of those promotions Gabe Bookerman himself. Cheers Gabe, some clips will be appearing in Botchamania 233.

  • bob

    first

    • whiteboy

      to suck dick

  • Kef

    you missed so much slammiversary material

    • MaffewOfBotchamania

      Such as…?

  • Botch Cara

    Correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t that ending made by “Dashing CN”? The guy who has taken over “Raw in roughly 5 minutes”?

  • tmacman

    That is one of the greatest endings of all time.

  • Jay_Bay

    Yo, you saw that superflex. That guy bounced like maybe 4 or 5 feet in the air. That’s impact, baby.

    • Botchamania over wrestlemania

      I came here to comment on that clip alone. I stopped the video just to do it

  • WildBill

    Where is that clip of the lass getting Powerbombed from? also who are the 2 in it? horrible to watch!

    • Calibad

      And onto thumbtacks no less…Yar, Who dis lass be?

      • Christopher

        Looks like Lufisto to me. She might be the only one hardcore and crazy enough to take that bump. But I could be wrong.

        Great BM as usual Maffew!

        • ShinChuck

          That’s Randi West getting powerbombed. I’m thinking that’s a UPW event in Michigan (the business sponsoring it is located in Escanaba in the U.P.). Not sure who the dude is.

  • CSick

    that taz intro still makes me laugh every time. but how is a british dude gonna use the american “office” theme?

    • tmacman

      Because the UK version’s intro doesn’t show the characters starring in it. It’s just a very dull part of Slough, which is basically any part of Slough.

  • Steven Lucz

    Extreme Rules at “The ‘Show Me State’ of Saint Louis, Missouri! (it’s a city)”

  • Tai

    Why the hell is Paul London wearing a Collingwood footy jumper?

  • Y-Set

    So, no more “Everyone Talks Too Much” intro ?

    • DrCalx

      That song just plays automatically for me now

  • DapperDan

    Hemme is too hot for me to care when she botches.

  • KrazyK

    Really no more daily motion uploads. I am so sick of ads during the videos!

  • Andy

    2:13 Triple H actually says “be in the middle”

  • Brandon Rodriguez

    That song at 4:26… I know it from somewhere… where is it from?

    Also, loved this Botchamania, upset that there was no “Everyone Talks Too Much” intro. :-

  • ColeYote

    Paul London is the shit, I dunno what Paul London’s talking about.

  • Van Hammerstein Ballroom

    Kidman’s shooting star press was not a botch. You know he meant to destroy David Flair’s face.

  • Teddy Rusxpin

    Fuck these ads. Great vid otherwise.

  • stpetersburg

    Great Botchie.

  • liamh

    the rock via poster had me howling! great effort.

  • DrCalx

    4:07 … Now normally, showing the pin would be a *good* camera angle … 4:20

  • Rollo

    Yes! Yes! Yes!
    Nice work Maffew!

  • Hitmonchan

    You don’t fuckin’ know how much I want rub your testicles just for adding the Death Egg zone music.

  • nastop

    Damn, that first clip… Who are the two crazy motherfuckers ?

  • Daniel Mount

    If only ROH would wise up and let you use their stuff.

    Christy Hemme – proof hotness always outweighs competence.

  • Stephen Crane
  • Jdizzle4Shizzle

    what is the name of the song playing during the david flair clips?

    • FigmentImage

      Armageddon 2000 by Jim Johnston

      Fun Fact: The night after the six man HITC at Armageddon 2000, Raw opened with a clip video of the match set to that song. It remains one of the most epic segments in the history of Raw. Check YouTube for the December 11th, 2000 Raw if you don’t believe me. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did.

  • Cigadeemus

    Great stuff can’t wait for 323 there was loads of things that happened that i knew would be in this one lol.

  • phil

    The Rock (Live Via Poster) lol

  • MPT

    How is the Mark Henry spot a botch?
