Notes…

To quote Jim Cornette, ”I don’t know what they got for putting a live mic in front of Sarah Logan but I hope it was at least 5-10 years.” Thanks for increasing the life-span of this series Sarah.


The IWA-MS tryout kid going splat (a lot of that happening in IWA-MS recently) was OK. Nothing a hotdog couldn’t fix.


I debated on including Booker T’s Simoleon comments, it’s close enough to sound like something nerdy to be acceptable on here where good wrestling is ruined with geek stuff but not that bad in the overall scheme of Booker T things.


The Impact triple-incorrect-name wrong isn’t fake as some have asked.


Hey a perfectly acceptable BACK AND TO THE LEFT. It’s been a while. Love that Impact is pre-recorded and they still left that in.


DDT are mostly silly so the press conference is hardly being ruined, but it made me laugh and I have friends who can translate Japanese so eh.


I’ve no idea who what Drake & Josh is, hopefully you do.

BOTCHAMANIA 356

  • peter fletcher

    That Drake and Josh ending is absolutely brilliant.

    • Brian

      holy shit YES! zayne and owens are like drake and josh, except the straight man is fat and the wild one is skinny.

  • That DDT promotion press conference killed me. Honestly, Google translator is a terrible invention unless you want to say some funny shit.

  • tony

    That Sarah Logan promo made Scott Steiner’s “I’m hungry!” diatribe seem coherent and eloquent

  • Straight Dave

    I’m looking for a certain episode of Botchamania. It’s a fairly recent one, there was a shoot fight in the ring with Murder Was the Case playing

  • arkhangelsk44

    WTF! Is that the Pencil Pusher in your intro?

  • FiveTwoZer0

    When did Owens and Zayn super kick Jericho together??? :/

    • Angel

      When they were on The Highlight Reel together and made the the match for Payback

  • OMG that Kev and Sami ending is a 10. But now that it’s framed it that way I can’t not want to see that be a thing.
    Also, Sarah Logan makes me laugh

  • JoPo

    I always thought Mike Barry was overrated as a high-rider!

  • Fabio Dewitt

    The best press conference of all time.

  • motorheadbanger

    Jesus, this one had me in stitches!! When “back and to the left” works, it works, so fuck the haters! Del Rio busted his ASS on those stairs too, Je-sus! But the best was the goddamn DDT press conference. By far the best clip of the year. I also like the look Nick Patrick gave Rotten when he ping-ponging all over the ring. Hell, the endings were bloody brilliant and the clips were fucking amazing. THIS is why Botchamania exists! Bravo, mate! Keep up the great work!!

  • ♬ Giant Pianist ♬

    The DDT press conference was fucking magical. I nearly had an aneurysm laughing at that

  • Brian

    So basically in case anyone wanted to know sara logan was just spouting stereotypical nonsense about the south. Claiming Daniel Bryan is prejudice against the south. Something about kentucky. and then asking “have you ever hunted live game? have you ever tasted game meat?”
