The appendix of wrestling (and by that, I mean it can be removed at any time), it’s Botchamania 244: The Evil That Meng Do!


No Easy Way Out by Robert Tepper

Re-Rewind (The Crowd Say Bo Selecta) by The Artful Dodger feat. Craig David

Ghost Valley by Soyo Oka, Taro Bando (Super Mario Kart)

Compression of Time by Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy VIII)

Thanks To…

Superfan Enrique for Trent Baretta’s intro.

Hoodslam for the bag of unmarked bills.

PhoenixBlueX for the ending.

TooCoolRikishiMashups for the other ending.

*Another* one PPV video. It was a much better show than Royal Rumble though, with Swagger vs. Langston, O’Neil vs. Young, the chamber and of course…The Wyatts vs. The Shield all worth a watch.

And then they have to go and ruin it with Batista vs. ADR, AJ vs. whoever isn’t injured, The Usos vs. NAO and a stupid amount of technical issues for such a tech-efficient company.

The videos are shorter than they used to be so I can upload them onto Vimeo, who have stricter upload criteria but seem to last longer online than YouTube. So there.

And anyone moaning about the advert can pay me more than what Hoodslam are paying and I would be delighted to remove it.

  • Augusto Joaquin Lizarraga Mari

    I am loving these Simpsons endings

  • RedMage138

    That ending… Bravo.

  • StogeBuyer

    Holy Shit. That ending was perfect. Kudos!

  • Stephen

    Sadly, you couldn’t get it up before they managed to course-correct on Bootista.

  • sciutti

    WOOOW. Loved the use of Compression of time, obviously also the endings.
    You probably make the most electrifying things in sports entertainment.

    • xander cross

      I like the Compression of time song as well. Perfect timing.

  • waltkovacs

    That Bad News Barrett clip is going to be in every Botchamania from now on, it’s just so perfect.

    • Moe Lester

      I can already imagine that clip introducing us to Batista/Orton at Wrestlemania 30 on a future Botchamania

      • Trevon Burtch

        Ironically the part where it said the moment u realize they are actually doing Orton/Batista, you know, the part where it shows how disappointed the crowd was when DB lost, was actually the moment I realized they weren’t doing Orton/Batista.

  • Chronologo

    O’Neill vs Young wasn’t a good match, the pace was so slow I almost fell asleep.

  • This stuff writes itself. Literally.

  • Venomizer

    Barrett rules!

  • chainsawhandz

    The 2001 references were FAH-KING BRILLIANT!

  • Vince Krupa

    Batista was gassed a minute and a half into that match. What in the hell kind of semi-decent match is he going to be able to pull out of his ass at Mania?

  • Ahmed Megahed

    This is Awesome *Clap clap clap clap clap * =D

  • simoniz

    Anyone notice AJ Lee’s Samoa Joe shorts?

    • Will Henderson

      yes, but she isn’t paying tribute to Samoa Joe, they are a tribute to one of her favorite comic book character, Harley Quinn. she’s wore a pink one, a red one, and a leopard red one, and has wore the same blue one before in another match i think.

      • Chris Hansen

        She’s worn the pink and black with the black shirt, and now the blue and black with a grey shirt. I like it. It’s like she’s in a fighting game.

  • Dynamo11

    That CM Poochie clip had me in stitches

  • EH

    Flair’s Boo”TISTA” needs to be my new texttone.

  • Codster9

    Botchamania really is the appendix of wrestling. Losing my appendix was the most painful experience of my life.

  • xPurple

    Dangut, I was watching the PPV looking for Botchamania moments, and the one I thought would make it didn’t make it. Still a great episode~ Can’t wait to see what shows up next.

  • Chad Soon

    More Simpsons endings please!

  • whites must be deported

    deport whites

  • jd

    is it just me or does some the the tattoos on batista’s back look like zits that are ready to pop?

    • jd

      some of the*

    • HiFiMcStevens

      His back reminds me of Goro’s back in Mortal Kombat.

  • ClaudioEtto

    Maffew likes FF8, so do I
    Boo-ti-sta chant started on botchamania

    • xander cross

      I love it when he played the Succession of Sorceress at the end. I love FF8 as well. Those were the good ole days.

  • David Fullam

    That was brilliant!

  • MPT

    AJ VS Cameron. We don’t moan about anything but point out absurdities.

  • Matthew Sampson

    imagine if they fucked up WrestleMania

  • NickJindrak


  • ybrevo

    ending was awesome

  • davidbonzaisaldanamontgomery

    That was a fantastic save by Barrett. Maybe this is the gimmick that FINALLY gets him ov–can’t even type it with a straight face, but it is an awesome gimmick he’s doing well. I wonder if Maffew tries to imitate BNB saying “BAAAAAAAD NEWWWWWWS!”

  • ColeYote

    I really just want a Daniel Bryan Danielson match in WWE to have a “you’re gonna get your fucking head kicked in!” chant one of these days.

    • sounds like the peanut gallery wants a daniel bryan vs daniel bryan match.

  • Jr.

    More Simpsons endings!

  • Chris Hansen

    Who complains about Hoodslam adverts? If anything, I think Hoodslam is getting ripped off, as they seem to be exclusively based out of Oakland, CA. I couldn’t go see their distinct brand of…weed and video games based wrestling even if I wanted to.

  • Brix

    holy shit. best ending ever

  • Franke Sisto

    OK. No joke. That was a GREAT fucking save on the part of Barrett.

    Way to roll with the punches man (o_o) b

  • frank

    Batista vs. Orton should happen because the internet doesn’t deserve happiness. Also, #BlamePunk

  • Derek Wightman

    I’m surprised you haven’t added Cactus Jack/HHH from Rumble 2000 when Jack loudly tells Triple H to use the barbwire 2×4 on his leg.

  • MisterForth

    At this point, they have to be messing with people. Even if they’re putting Bryan in, they’re basically burning a lot of bridges. No one can be this stupid.

  • The whole ending was awesome, lol

  • YoungAngryMan

    Can’t believe you left out the referee saying “They’re in” when the Wyatts entered the Chamber. Maffew….I am disappoint 🙁

  • solidus snake

    Genius ending, good job!!!

  • supermutant

    I got to give credit to barrett to for thinking on his feet. Though gimmick is still stupid. I think the end of elimination was the quietest I had ever heard a crowd. Crowds will be tired but will still boo or cheer. There was dead silence. The old saying you can hear a pin drop that probably was true. That ending with punk reminds me of how XPW wrote off Messiah after he was fired from the company. Bootista chant is the greatest chant ever.

  • Michael Harwood

    Batista should definitely not be main eventing Mania but all the hate is a bit ridiculous. The guy is putting hes body on the line and is putting in more time than the Rock and he didn’t get booed. Im just glad it isn’t Cena and Randy at Mania lol.

    • Timmy Tongemans

      At least the Rock bothered getting in shape before coming back. Batista looked like he’d been camping out at Dunkin Donuts for a week before he came back.

  • Rocksault

    You should feature Emma’s disastrous debut… teaming her with Santino is the brainfart of the decade.

  • J

    That ending was just amazing

  • The Kingslayer

    That was genius.

  • Rocoe’s Wetsuit

    This is one of the funniest episodes in a long time. The span from 5:53 till the end is absolutely perfect. Especially from Batista’s celebration (with the “Boo-Tista” dub) till the end. I started getting a cramp when the sad fan faces hit. Then the “Fuck this company” came in and I almost pissed my pants. As for the ending…. It was magnificent. Bravo, maffew. Bravo.

  • glox

    haha, that ending caught me off guard. was in tears, one of my favorites.

  • Simon

    Best ending to a botchamania ever!

  • Jiblets

    Am I the only one who thinks JBL’s commentary has jumped the shark into insane Dusty land?

  • Lee

    what do hoodslam pay for the advert? i dont even know what it is that hoodslam do, but i know what it isnt, it isnt pro wrestling.
