Wrestlemania’s nearly here and er yeah. Whatever happens, I’ll be laughing.

  • Senor Pene

    is that just my vimeo player lags? or everyone’s as well?

    • Georgerv

      Mine does while it’s loading, have to let the video buffer the whole way before playing usually

    • JG

      Turn off HD if you’re having trouble with it loading

  • RobinL

    Hit on Debra! HAHAHAHA amazing

    • Spd2478

      Like a baWse!

  • Mike Johnson

    Love it all. Loved the “Hard Times” finish to it too.

  • Matthew Johnson

    Yeah, I totally buy that lawyer as being from Russia, what with his Brooklyn accent and all…

    • John Firth

      Why would his lawyer be Russian anyway? Russian law’s not gonna be much use in the US. We all know lawyers will take on any case for money, so any schmoe would have done. A fancy one with grey hair and a briefcase would have been better.

    • ambrosealley

      can people in the ring hear what commentators say? He kept getting worse with his accent

      • John C. Reilly

        No you cannot

  • ColeYote

    I’m gonna be frank, I think it’s in slightly poor taste to release this the day after a botch killed Perro Aguayo Jr.

    • septimar

      Fuck off.

    • 1434

      Seriously, get bent.

    • gedmundo

      And only 4940 days after 9/11. Seriously, Maffew is deranged,

      • fgdfgfdgdf

        dumbass.

        • gedmundo

          If you want to appear more intellectual than someone – which I assume you do based on your comment disparaging my own mental capacity – write something more poetic than that my good man.

          • Catherine Bouey

            Think he could also do with understanding the basic concepts behind sarcasm and snark.

    • Craig

      Get over yourself dude, it’s not in poor taste at all.

      • Matthew Johnson

        Indeed, it would only have been in poor taste if the video actually featured the moment in question.

    • trololololololol

      I agree. He probably should of waited at least one more day.

  • davoid15

    Not to shill, but if you havent seen it max landis’ video on pro wrestling called ‘wrestling isnt wrestling’ is just amazing, and definitely worth a watch

  • 1434

    Oooh lordy… That Dusty Rhodes “Hard Times” ending was pure gold!

  • OK, that “Hard Times” promo was great. Man, WWE is just piling up all of the material for BotchaMania. I guess this coming WrestleMania might be a two-part episode of BotchaMania.

  • MPT

    You gotta put in more South Park clips

  • The Shockmaster

    Jeeezus

  • You’ve been on such a roll with these awesomely sports entertaining episodes.

  • MisterForth

    Apparently, they didn’t intended on the guy playing the lawyer to be as bad as he was, and Verne McMahon instructed them to bury him.
    P.S. Loved all 3 endings.

    • Catherine Bouey

      Who’s Verne McMahon?

      • Verne McMahon, Vince Gagne, they tend to blur into each other.

        • MisterForth

          Actually that was my intent. McMahon, like Gagne, was a great promoter in his early years, but after 3 decades, he was out of touch.

  • Really enjoyed this episode.

    What’s the story behind Dusty’s “Hard times” rant?

    • Autrach Sejanoz

      Dusty was in a feud with Ric Flair, and Flair had, in Dusty’s own words “put hard times on him”. He then compared that to numerous blue-collar people who were being laid off/hard done by (in the time when the promo took place, America was going through a rough patch economically speaking.)

    • raVen

      you have to youtube it man…it’s a classic

  • FatAsses85

    That Dusty Rhodes ending was too real to be funny.

  • Zachary Marshall Neaves

    Streets of Rage’s The Last Soul?!!!! Awesome pick man, one of my favorite Video Game Songs ever! Thank you for all that you do.

  • king

    i love street range’s theme song man

  • king

    Streets of Rage not range sorry I just botched.

  • Prince Barin

    I made this because after my girlfriend pointed it out, I cannot unhear/unsee

  • Ricardo Guanipa

    Japanese people clapping at 8:00 kills me

  • Sterling Archer

    The dack is always stacked against Sterling Archer, I’m just awesome enough to blow right threw them.

    • raVen

      but what do you do when the dack is stecked against you sterling?

      • Sterling Archer

        Simple, get drunk, get women, and ride into the DangerZone.

  • Boris Carlot

    Man, Jesper Kyd does some fantastic music.

  • Gino Aris Valdivia

    Upload the SCSA “like a boss” alone!

  • Catherine Bouey

    I never knew Cesaro’s shitty entrance theme would find a perfect use as audio replacement for a Spongebob clip.

  • RaptorFactor

    great upload

  • ColeYote

    Oh, man, it is hard to watch Chris Benoit falling on his head.

    • Catherine Bouey

      Not when you realize that he somehow avoided falling on his head. Now if want a true example of Benoit fucking his head up on a move BM155.

  • RFE .

    In the Rusev segment you can actually see Michael Cole trying to not laugh. Its like he has swallowed a hot chip.

  • RexKidd

    How did you do “Like a Boss” Austin without including “HIT ON DEBRA”?

  • Assassinator

    BELEE DAT.

  • Chris Snugens Jacobsen

    So, real talk. Scott Pilgrim: Great game or Greatest game?

  • supermutant

    Boy I wonder if Vince was just having a ball with Booker and JBL and lawyer it went screw it. Well play up that might be a fake lawyer not stop them. I think that was the best part of the segment was JBL and Bookers commentary.

    One thing about WM31 later today it will be Bothamania fodder. As spoony said on his video for road to it we might be looking at Lensar/Goldburg two with the crowd. Over and under how long before fans start Daniel Bryan chants?

  • Dottorrent

    Another ColeFail –

    ” Fandango one on one with Fandango tonight”

  • What an episode!

  • Pat

    Jesus fuck, benoit getting dropped like that was killer. It looked like murder on his neck. A bit choked up by it

  • evilfangs .

    Anyone know when the next Botchamania is out? Normally by now we have got a Wrestlemania and RAW Botchamania after those events.

  • Chuck cimorelli

    At minute 9:15 that was at Dutchess Stadium in Fishkill NY. I was at that show and witnessed Cody Hall screw up the Outsiders Edge 3 times. It was kinda awkward to watch a man fail to do his fathers trademark maneuver in front of his father. The only thing I can say in his defense is that it was raining that night and it was an outdoor show lol
