Notes…


Holy shit, that’s actually Onita doing the intro.


List of Companies and Where To Find Them…


WWE Network still works and you’d better buy it before they get rid of NXT.


NJPW World is now available on Amazon Fire devices and it luckily has optional Japanese commentary.


ICW’s On Demand still works, I recommend Shug’s Hoose Party as long as you skip Bram.


Rev Pro have an On Demand Service where you can see some nice wrestlers and also Gilligan Gordon.


Lucha Underground can be watched internationally via iTunes.


WrestleCircus can be found streaming via Twitch, which makes sense as it’ll take about seven hours to finish a show.


RFVideo finally has a download service so you can get the interviews right there and then.


Title Match Wrestling have a cool YouTube channel.


And here’s your Botchamania FaceBook and Twitter.

    if I’m Ellering in that match, wouldn’t I just start legit beating the shit out of my opponent? isn’t that what the Road Warriors and Spivey/Sid did to uncooperative opponents in earlier Botchamanias?

    • markula

      Maybe, but she could have recognized how bad the match was going and understand the frustration.

    • Leo Grant

      Except by the looks it neither one looked like they were trying to work with the other.

  • Someone please give Stevie Ray a job in WWE as an agent or something. He tells some great stories and man, the fact that he and Booker managed to hide their laughter over Ahmed’s idiocy is hilarious.

    • Bushwhacker Puuuke

      Yeah, I think Stevie Ray’s commentary in WCW was underrated.

      • Agreed. Man, I could listen to that guy tell stories as I saw a few of his interviews and he’s definitely caught my attention.

  • ViewtfulHero

    WWE Network still works and you’d better buy it before they get rid of NXT.

    I see 205 Live getting the axe first….but given how they swerved most people by canceling Talking Smack what do I know?

  • Ramos

    Great Spongebob ending.

  • JoPo

    Id rather watch a Divas match from WCW in 2000 than that Jaynes/Ellering match. Can’t buy something that doesn’t want to sell

    • Bushwhacker Puuuke

      Snappy turn of phrase there, I like it.

    • MaffewOfBotchamania

      ”Can’t buy something that doesn’t want to sell”

      That is a money line

  • Bushwhacker Puuuke

    That Ellering / Jaynes match is the most uncomfortable thing I’ve ever seen in a wrestling ring. Yeeeesh…

  • RUKKUS

    Did you see the botch Bobby Walker did on WCW Worldwide?

  • Paul S

    Kinda surprised you didn’t Send in the Man on Omega .

  • motorheadbanger

    Best “Back and to the left” bit ever. I seriously couldn’t breathe. My glasses are a mess now. Great endings all around, especially the abs one. I likey! Keep up the great work!

  • Yohan Vigilante Beebe

    I was at wrestlecircus, that match was bad………. I was like.. is it gonna make botchamania?

  • spicollidriver

    I regularly disagree with Cornette’s views on current wrestling. but I feel the situation in that women’s match is something that would have hardly happened a few decades ago (this is refering to the “small package, sunset flip” story – which of course they literally did. but not without standing around looking confused).

  • Stefan Turan

    The Jeff Hardy ending was soooo great. I spit beer everywhere!

  • TheoKrause

    What’s the song that’s playing during Miz/Rollins blawl?

  • Placid_Snake

    Fucking Hell, Jeff Hardy Pro Skater 2 is one of my favourite endings ever.
