    • James Purcell

      Oh my god, I thought that was familiar!

  • cheapshock chap

    That intro theme is badass!

  • GetReadyToFlyAJ

    New botchamania YAY!

  • cheapshock chap

    Can’t see what’s happening after the bully ray’s segment. ):

    • Fernando Silva

      Same here

  • Fernando Silva


  • Zanon

    You just botched the last 70 seconds of the video, Maffew.
    Minus. Five. Stars.

  • Meatymoo

    Why can’t I view this?!!

    • Jeyzus

      It got deleted because the last 70 seconds or so froze on one frame.

  • D Page

    How do you get permission to watch the video?

  • moomoosheep

    The creepy rugrats music <3 I noticed it straight away <3

  • MaffewOfBotchamania

    It’s fixed now, Vimeo and YouTube have a weird way of fucking up the video/audio sometimes.

    Also uploaded a YouTube alternative.

    • MaffewOfBotchamania

      and by youtube I mean dailymotion.

  • Oh man, that is fucking awesome. Props to Clark Duke for liking that.

  • bummed1

    I miss it on youtube!!! Should have a mailing list when you post these so we don’t miss any!!

    • Fata_Morgana_Pseudonym

      You can set up Botchamania on a feed site like feedly or something. That’s how I keep up with it.

    • MaffewOfBotchamania

      I post them on Patreon, Twitter and the BM FB so I thought a mailing list would be redundant.

      But if others support the idea, I’ll set one up.

  • MPT

    Don’t get the thumb and mountain dew/ambulance sirens spots; please explain, Maffew; actually have the Rugrats video game and remember hearing that music—GOOD TIMES

    • AwelCruiz

      I think I remember Kurt Angle telling Conan O’Brien a story about how in college, there was this chick who used to call him a thumb because of his thick neck. Of course, it became more apparent after he had his head shaved.

      Mountain Dew is not exactly healthy, and Lawler once suffered a near fatal heart attack. So the fact that ambulance sirens start playing right after he extols the greatness of Mountain Dew is a bit harsher in hindsight.

      At least, these explanations are what I think Maffew was getting at.

      • MPT

        Makes sense; thanks; I remember the heart attack a lot.

  • Angel Camacho

    Bonus piece of awesomeness with that clip from Chris Jericho’s podcast. XD

  • Josh

    Could’ve sworn when you were doing the Mountain Dew joke you were going to show them not only not holding the drinks they were claiming to have but their 20 oz regular mountain dews sit unopened or sipped nearly the entire show.

    • lee

      They aren’t as bad at doing that now, jerry swigs it during the shows.
      I did like on main event Byron Saxton trying to hide is can of Monster, but the shots of cesaro on commentary revealed it.

      Byron drinking a non sponsored beverage? He’s Fiiiiiired.

  • Guest

    Van Daminator :S

  • Qerok

    Chris Jericho tapped out in his match with Bray Wyatt.

  • AwelCruiz

    Was I the only one expecting “JEEEEEEEEEZUS!” from the Dale Call?

    • MaffewOfBotchamania

      That was one of those ”it’s 3am and I decided Chikara need their own intro” moments.


      • AwelCruiz

        Works for me. 😉

  • Codster9

    Chris Jericho gave the video a bulldog at the end.

  • James Purcell

    Michael Cole (I think?) getting beeped for ‘Jesus Christ’ was probably the highlight of that match.

    • lee

      It was JBL the renegade.
      And no, it wasnt close to the highlight.

  • JD

    Clark Duke liking Botchamania is the coolest thing

  • Rock

    Thats a good spot…. Just not for the Rock.

  • ClaudioEtto

    Why no HD?

  • ColeYote

    I’d compare all those German suplexes at the start to the Scott Steiner belly-to-belly match, but a German suplex is a move I don’t mind seeing 20 of in a match.
    “Hitler!” absolutely killed me.
    Wait, did TNA go back to a hexagonal ring while I wasn’t looking? And when did they get Matt Hardy again?

    • Josh Dionio

      TNA went back to the 6 sided ring when they started doing their New York dates a month or so back. As for Bully leaving, he talked to the locker room saying that his contract was ending and wasn’t getting re-signed. Apparently this is going on for a bunch of the main eventers/ high end contract holders as they don’t know what’s gonna happen if they don’t know who’s gonna get their tv deal now Spike’s stated they may not renew the deal.

      • Guest

        What do you mean “may not”?

        They’ve pretty much told Dixie they’re not renewing once their current deal expires in two months.

        • Josh Dionio

          What I meant is they could get a new deal that would be less money to TNA than their current deal is.

          • Guest

            Unless Spike forgives them for hiring Vince Russo under the nose or like the perpetually low ratings TNA brought in I don’t see how.

  • Jobberific

    Good god, after ‘thank you Dexter’, I take back anything bad I’ve ever said about TNA fans.

  • ColeYote

    I’m pretty sure fucking up the Miranda rights doesn’t mean an arrested person goes free, it just means the prosecution can’t use anything they say.

    And Kane was down for 16, by my count. Nice job, ref.

    • Ovaltine Jenkins

      Cops also don’t actually read the rights during the arrest. It happens during the interrogation.

      • ColeYote

        I know that’s another misconception about them, but strictly speaking while they don’t *need* to do it on arrest, some do it on arrest anyway. Not quite sure if this is just to be safe or so they can use what they say in the car.

  • Stephen Smith

    Shame there weren’t a lot of botches in this video but the number of “Everybody Talks Too Much” segments made up for it. And the return of “Send For The Man!”

    Maffew’s come a long way since starring in Small Soldiers.

  • Brock Lesnar – Samoan Suplex..


  • Man, this is the best Botchamania in months. Laughed my ass off. 😀

  • J.T. Nutt

    whats the music during the Brickara part?

  • Brandon420

    LMAO the Hiedenriech/Cole rape angle!!

  • Toodles

    I lost it when the Cole/Heidenreich thing happened. I saw it coming a mile away and it still killed me!

  • Where is the laugh from on the table bit? My wife and I are trying to place it.

  • CS 22

    Super Punch Out!

  • Ovaltine Jenkins

    Lesner needs to do some leg work.

    Then again, I’m no where near as in shape as he is, so who am I to judge?

  • G

    that rugrats music was awesome

  • HerpDerp40

    Lesnar should use ‘Sonne’ as his theme lol

  • Matthew Murphy

    Mandark ftw
