I was shaking when I met Apter, his World Of Wrestling magazine was a great part of my child-hood. Thanks for letting me fan-boy you Bill.

Yay the return of BACK AND TO THE LEFT! Don’t worry, I pay attention to feedback and it’ll only show up when needed and not every episode. I somehow left out JBL getting hit with a jacket last episode. Good job these are regular as E3 let-downs.

Judging by Twitter, half of Europe lost the signal when Brock/Joe went at it so if you’re one of those that didn’t lose it, well good for you but I stand by the Simpsons joke.

CZW and Zandig lever also returns for the first time in ages as I haven’t been watching much CZW and not many clips have been sent my way. It’s a Tournament of Death show so only the absolute best botches were used as I know many aren’t a fan of the ultraviolent wrestling.

If your ending has been sent but not used it’s because it was crap. OK, maybe not but there’s a big pile-up as they’re usually related. I have a whole bunch of Reigns/Strowman endings but they lose their impact if 3 are used in one video. So don’t worry, they’re in the pipeline.

Hopefully MITB will produce enough botches for the botch Gods. If not, I’ll have Rawmania 1995 for next Friday.

That Piper clip has been debated for ages. I hope I haven’t used it before, I’ve usually got a good memory for these things. YOU FEATHER-WEARING FUCKING FREAK.

    No Rock honking this week?

    • MaffewOfBotchamania

      has to be a mix. A lot of people hatttttteeeeee the HONK HONK.

      • Brian

        Hey Maffew, i was wondering where that Dean Malenko match was from. Early WCW? Almost thought he was facing Martey Jannety there…but then realized that’s probably a young scott steiner

        • MaffewOfBotchamania

          It was Scott Steiner during an ECW 1995 fan cam show.

          I’m sure Marty would be flattered to be mistaken for ’95 Steiner.

          • Brian

            Ah okay interesting! Thanks!

  • MJA

    Great video as always. And judging by MITB 2017, you’ll have enough material for the next 3 episodes. 😀

  • ballz

    hard times is the best may dusty RIP great video love the chop battle from devitt smack em up reality bites

  • ViewtfulHero

    Yay the return of BACK AND TO THE LEFT! Don’t worry, I pay attention to feedback

    That’s funny though in light of people bitching about you throwing CZW into the videos and dubbing video game music over the clips yet those have been in for years….fuck those whiny pricks. They’re even worse than the people who go into e3 expecting something like Mother 3 being localized or something else not very realistic or practical and whine about the show being worst ever (even when there’s been much weaker e3 conferences over the years).

    • MaffewOfBotchamania

      ”dubbing video game music” well that’s not changing anytime soon, don’t worry. Got to be a compromise.

      • ViewtfulHero

        That’s good wouldn’t be able to find out about a shit ton of tunes otherwise.

  • Stephen Crane

    MITB will feed you for weeks, Botchking. Other than AJ and Shinzo being teased, it was the drizzling shits.

  • Tewhundridennindyatepancase

    Has anyone done the Rock’s honk noise with Fine Young Cannibals – She Drives Me Crazy yet?

    • MaffewOfBotchamania

      Certainly have! And now I have it in my head.

  • Matt Burrows

    I used to love ‘you talk too much’. Is there any way of bringing that back? Lana at MITB was all talking, in between the horrid SCREAMS!!!

    • Leo Grant

      Given she’s spent most of her tenure in WWE as a mouthpiece not surprising.

  • tony

    Mean Gene corpsing = top notch

  • ViewtfulHero

    Where in the world do you keep finding Sabu botches?

    • MaffewOfBotchamania

      He’s the gift that keeps on giving.

  • Crystel Jeanine Redknap

    What’s the song on Strowman/Lesner?? My husband and I can’t identify it!!!

    • raVen ™

      smh. Requiem for a Dream

  • motorheadbanger

    I’m not gonna bitch about anything having to do with any Botchamania. I love ’em all and I appreciate the work you do Maffew. Keep up the great work!

    The “bed goes up, bed goes down” ending came out of nowhere and just about killed me. I need to stop drinking anything while watching these things. It never ends well for me or my keyboard. Great endings all around. Liked them all!
