    It’s a Christmas miracle. Whatchu talkin’ bout, everyone!

  • June Julien Misserey

    Brilliant as usual.

    Highlight of 263: CZW footage
    Highlight of 264: CZW intro

  • Gobind Ollek

    Michael Cole’s “bump” at TLC is soooo funny. Thanks Maffew for making my holidays awesome!

  • Dick Slender

    Reaching for botches? Onryo often grabs the referee’s hand to prevent the three count like that. He’s been doing it for nearly 15 years now, since J Cup 2000.

    • Dr. Phart-Ebum

      Das write! Dhere wer bodtches in da match, but nod da finnish.

  • ColeYote

    Oh, man, fans got to choose between an extreme rules match, no holds barred match and street fight? Such interactivity!

  • MPT

    Botchamania 263

    Where’s the audio in the Jericho/Heyman part from? I don’t get the lead-in for PWG or where it’s from. Where’s the audio in the Sgt. Slaughter bit from? Are you referring to Grimes the singer?

    Botchamania 264

    • Franke Sisto

      The only ones I know for certain are from 263:

      Jericho/Heyman audio’s from Futurama. Forget which episode specifically.

      Now for the whole reason I’m responding: Sgt. Slaughter bit is from Samurai Jack – specifically Episode 11: “Jack and the Scotsman” (my favorite episode in the whole series).

    • Chris Evans

      Unless I’m mistaken, the soundbite for the Sgt Slaughter bit was from Samurai Jack.

      As for the Big Show song, that was “Turn, Turn, Turn”, a song by the band, The Byrds

    • Waniyaro

      The Big Show audio is from Firefly.

  • ThePlanetLucha

    I like Botchamania 264 beacuse is so many time im not hear The Iron Sheik close the video with that stupid catchphrase. Good job

  • PaigeLee

    Cole falling off his chair will never get old.

    • raVen

      that avi tho… so good

  • Franke Sisto

    I was at Cage of Death this year. Great show. Generally botch-free too. Glad there weren’t any I really missed!

  • Ultron

    God Damn it Cole.

  • Thanks Maffew… Merry Xmas.

  • Angel Camacho

    I gotta know. Where’d you get those ICP commentaries?! Freakin’ hilarious! XD

  • I’d start watching raw more regularly if ICP was on commentary

  • Arahs

    That Reigns promo made me cry… And i’m not if these were happy tears…

  • Alyson Tamara Guard

    Watched the 2000 Royal Rumble last night, and around the 19 minute mark, The British Bulldogs leans in and gives The Big Bossman a little kiss in the middle of the match – why? Because he’s BIZARRE – but this was the first place a thought of…

  • Andrew M

    Shit, i didnt know Shane Haste wrestled in PWG. Good to see an Aussie getting work overseas

    • Andrew M

      Oh god . I’m so behind on wrestling. Thought Sami Zayn looked awesome, gave him a google.. fucking El Generico. NXT is doing a good job of picking up indie talents.

      • raVen


  • Stephen Smith

    Botchamania 264 may be one of my favourite episodes. The botched lionsault after the AJ Styles/Satoshi Kojima botch was hilarious. 🙂

    What was the Japanese promotion immediately after that, featuring the woman repeating her elbow drop finisher?

    • Stephen

      No clue, but I’m stunned that anyone that jacked who can at least think about trying a lionsault isn’t in developmental yet.

  • MisterForth

    That Ambrose ending was so screwed up, it deserved both Botchamania endings.

  • Greg

    That shout ending was awesome. Can someone help me and tell the name of the song on the Rusev pledge?

    • Codster9


  • raVen

    you could get a a months worth of botchamania from a 5minute ambrose match.
    fucking trash!

  • Senor Pene

    Ryback taking 10 years toll from Mark Henry too. Worst coincidence ever.

  • SirGeeeO

    the alleged kick out (7:50) the guy being pinned caught the refs hand stopping him from finishing the 3 count…not a botch

  • Youcefbenoit

    264 is pure gold

  • Botchamania has been consistently fucking great since 250. I’d love to see every Big Show turn ever shown to that song.

  • what exactly is benoit supposed to be

  • James Fuller

    Maffew you need to go and re-check all the videos that aren’t up them if possible..that would be awesome..thx

  • GNo Aris FreakCeleste

    Maffew needs to make a longer version of “Shout”

  • Ed Miliband

    Fucking HELL I am in tears at the Ian Malcolm table.

  • javron

    i love BM You always makes me smile and laugh, grand final

  • Placid_Snake

    Why the FUCK does the Juggalo Championship Wrestling ring have no middle rope?! It seems like it would make bouncing off them much harder, make it easier to fall outside the ring and make springboard moves near impossible.

  • Andrew J. Miller

    Lmao Samurai Jack rip!
