Maffew’s Notes…

Sadly only viewable via Dailymotion, WWE took the video down ASAP.


Used Diamond Dust Zone 1 years ago. I think I can get away with using the second one now. Maybe.


Payback was an awesome show, read more in bite-size form here.


The referee for CZW (Brett Lauderdale) insists he didn’t mess up, but declined to confirm or deny if Rory Mondo twatted him backstage. If true, Rory gets my vote for ‘Most Improved’ wrestler as of 2013. Coupled with this and Unlucky’s match, TOD was way better than 2012’s.


Clash Of The Champions V is sorry shit. The only highlight is Ricky Steamboat criticizing Ric Flair’s life-style…and getting booed by the crowd.


The Sabu/Table match clips come from a 1994 match with Chris Candido (Part 1 & Part 2) and the audio comes from the live-action Masters Of The Universe film. And Ultimate Crab Battle 2.

    Yes! Yes! Yes!

    Thank you Maffew for all the hard work you put in collecting material and editing these entertaining shorts.

    Hip toss.. No.. Great stuff!

    Hip toss.. No.. Great stuff!

  • Mongo’s hairline

    If that dude is from the home of Intergender Wrestling, does that mean he was born a chick? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Jeremy

    Japanese chairs: Flimsy as hell. Japanese tables: Will not fucking break!

  • SarcyMoFo

    Sabu v Table – better than ANYTHING CZW has done or will ever do
    Ron Simmons denying Hip Toss was great too ๐Ÿ˜€

    • atomicbleep

      Simmons denied the show too… that was Butch Reed knocking Steven Caseyon his arse.

  • taranaich

    In the intro: just as Jimmy was talking about the scar on his head, the Dailymotino ad comes up: “Suffering from hair loss? Zeiring Hair Transplant can help!”

  • Codster9

    Any match Sabu is in is a handicap match, since his opponent always has a table on their side.

  • Jr.

    MOAR BILL NYE PLZ

  • Evin

    I think every promotion deliberately swaps the break-away tables for real ones before Sabu’s matches, just for shits and giggles

  • I got a McDonald’s add before the video. No worries, I’m cool with that.

    What I’m wondering, though, is why i was in French. =O

  • Rowan Smith

    Thank you Maffew once again. I have a fan of pro wrestling for last thirty-five years and you are a breath of fresh air for me. It keeps them on there toes. I love your work and effort just as much as anyone who has laced up their boots and put up on show. Cheers.

    • MaffewOfBotchamania

      Thank you sir, I’m happy I can put a smile on people’s faces, cheesy as that sounds.

      Thank you sir, I’m happy I can put a smile on people’s faces, cheesy as that sounds.

  • Rowan Smith

    Whoops i just botched few times in my last post.

  • Stephen

    I thought that the Bill Nye intro was for some sort of horribly botched catapult spot, until he said “… lever.”

  • Jonny

    I thought the Bill Nye thing was for botched catapults as well. You could really just do a 5 minute clip of time that HHH has done a terrible catapult. No idea why they happen in half his matches when he can’t do one worth crap.

  • ANTHONY86BUTABI

    HOODSLAAAAAM!!!!

  • Name

    Moar F-Zero please.

    Sterling work as usual x

  • masterbenis

    maffew is unstoppabubble.

  • Shucks

    The Masters of the Universe clip “Let this be our final battle!” into Sabu’s try after try had me in tears laughing. Thank you.

  • James Sheppard

    Very honoured to have my Bill Nye video appear on a Botchamania! Thansk Maffew! Keep up the good work!

  • davidbonzaisaldanamontgomery

    How have you STILL not used up all the music from the Sonic Genesis/Mega Drive games yet?

    Fantastic fucking ending as usual.

  • Fuck this company

    Well, it finally happened, Cena beat the whole fucking roster.

  • StraightEdgeMan

    I didnt understand the Benoit botches please explain me

    • mintsauce

      I think it has something to do with WWE bleeping out audio or video to pretend something didn’t happen… like Benoit’s WWE career.

      • GiftoftheMagi

        The WWE policy is still that Benoit is not to appear in any published material. If you buy an anthology series now, you won’t find a single match on segment where he is in it…either by edits to the video or the matches completely removed. They even altered their Championship timelines so that Benoit’s runs never existed. Sadly, this isn’t the only time WWE has done revisionist history…the OSW guys recently covered one instance where Hulk Hogan cause Sid Justice a Royal Rumble match in a completely dickish move and got booed out of the stadium…only to have the video has cheeres and edited dialogue making him sound the hero.

  • ColeYote

    8:56
    And next up in our “would’ve been sick if it was intentional series”…

    I still don’t get CZW’s obsession with fluorescent tubes.

  • hassan ameli

    hey maffew check out my Botchamania ending

  • KO!

    Ugh daily motion ads = loss of video. Fun watchin while it lasted though…

  • jvitolo

    Bonus points for Basil Fawlty going postal on his POS car.

  • oansun

    I was hoping there would be a “I’ll be back” gag at the end. DELIVERED. So many thanks for MOTU

  • Louis

    At WM29, Rock told Cena : ”Yeah, they don’t like you, you Son of a Bitch”

  • MPT

    The Kaitlyn bit wasn’t funny
