The laughing faces during the Manchester United bit is legendary manager Alex Ferguson. No, it’s not called The Manchester United. Ever.

The audio during Sin Cara getting stuck is from The Running Man. The bit with Dynamo, specifically.

The Adam Bomb ending is a riff on the Metal Gear Solid V song. I haven’t played MGSV yet but I love that song.

  • Maffew’s Lack of Height

    Maffew you’re a shithouse for including the Dory Funk Jr attempted double-underhook.

    • MaffewOfBotchamania

      Cheers mate!

    • Catherine Bouey

      I think you mean “alleged”.

      • Craig

        Was it Dory’s fault though, or was his opponent sandbagging him?

        • Catherine Bouey

          My money’s on it being Dory given how frail he looks.

          • Christ J

            I thought he looked as if he was trying not to shit himself.

  • tony

    I CAN’T, I CAN’T, I CAN’T STAND LOSING…..just as hilarious as it was last time, thank you Maffew!

  • Gruntt

    My exact thoughts on 2:35
    “I’m too old for this shit…”

  • MPT

    Apollo 13 and Goodfellas for good measure…thanks for pointing out the rest of the references; I can understand things in your videos better.

  • bauchmann

    awesome to see john klinger in the botchamania intro! WxW is love!

  • LuisBarrage .

    I suggest STILL not playing MGSV

  • bauchmann

    maffew, are you going for a new segment with the “TAZ interview inaudible audio” bits?

    • FatKraker


  • FatKraker

    Shit, Dory makes Terry look like he still has another 20 years.

  • Mad Sheltie


  • Waruce

    You totally used that subtitle in episode 284 (see, somebody reads them :p)

    • MaffewOfBotchamania

      Dammit, you’re right. It was so good though.

  • João

    What about Del Rio removing Kallisto’s mask?

  • Catherine Bouey

    Super Dragon more like “SUPER DICKHEAD” clap clap clap.

  • Христо Георгиев
  • MisterForth

    Between George Thorogood, and both Taker Lesnar endings, this was brilliant.

  • rob

    so glad good idea bad idea is back.

  • GunsmithKitten

    It took 293 to get to “Wanna see my new chainsaw and hockey mask?!” but it was so worth it….

  • ColeYote

    I noticed recently, Super Dragon is kinda unstable.

  • Mike Lyent.

    Honestly, I think HHH said “high how are you?” on purpose. Basically so the kids don’t get it, but we do.

  • Fullname J Warrington

    Can’t believe he just sat there being all ‘durrrrrrrr’ while his opponent was iced on the floor. Just pin him and get it over with instead of looking like a deer in headlights
