Are You Being Served? Theme by David Croft & Ronnie Hazlehurst

  • Peng

    The Wade & Jericho one made me laugh so fucking hard

    • TheReverendPuck


    • I write something

      The superdragon made me laugh even more it’s 6:57 morning here and i laugh like a fucking retard ehehehehehehehhehe

  • G.M.Spectre

    The moment when you think it’s Sunday night and PBS is on in the background, and then realize that Maffew put “Are You Being Served?” in his video.

    • Joe Klunk

      Hearing that theme made my day. One of my favorite sitcoms, British or otherwise.

  • Cut to the Jericho/Shawn feud, “I’m going to need his eye”

  • Mase

    Botchamania at its finest with the Benoit and Punk Breakfast Club flashbacks

    • ikr! that was the cutest thing maffew came up with!

    • lewmar

      That made me lose it lol

  • beaverbutt

    Nice Futurama bit.

  • Os0

    What language “Jestem Tabeli” in Tables clip is it suppose to be?

    • ZdzichuWiertara96 .

      IMHO It’s supossed to be polish. It’s a botch. “Jestem stołem”

      • MaffewOfBotchamania

        I use Google Translate for those and they always go down well…because they’re always wrong.

        So er, yeah let’s call it deliberate. Cough.

        • Nukleon

          Maybe you should have a spreadsheet of every language version of “I Am The Table!” that people can fill in.

          • MaffewOfBotchamania

            That’s actually a great idea.

  • Stephen Smith

    Two more great videos Maffew. 🙂

  • MisterForth

    265: The fans cheered for literal communism before they would Reigns, that’s how bad the Rumble was booked. 266: I’m strangely proud in being an American that A) Already knew the difference between Preston and Prescott, as well as knowing the AYBS theme.

    • Kyle Warne

      Russia hasn’t been communist for decades

      • Joshua Norton

        Rusev is a straight up Cold War villain. He might as well carry around the old Soviet flag and pledge his allegiance to The Workers.

        • Kyle Warne

          Except he doesn’t.

          He pledges alligence to Putin–who isn’t a communist.

          The cold war has been over for 20+ years. Russia is a controversial place right now for all kinds of reasons. Socialism is not one of them

          • WP

            Honestly, do you think Vince cares?

          • Catherine Bouey

            Well he is a republican so…..

    • logstrain

      if you think putin is a communist you should get fucking educated

      • MisterForth

        Not Putin, the 69-year old man booking the show that thinks it’s still the USSR.

  • Wintermute

    In the words of Achievement Hunter’s Geoff Ramsey: Titus O’Neil is so bad, he sucks dick at sucking dick.

    • Maor Hamagniv

      i love you for that reference. gluck gluck…

  • Hawlucha

    Estaba esperando por esto desde hace mucho…Finally!!!!!!

  • Jon Fite

    Rusev and commentary covered that flag botch extremely well.

    • Franke Sisto

      Agreed. I remember watching it and thinking “They just sold the hell out of this and made it look intentional.” Few times all parties involved deserve that kind of praise.

    • Gustavo

      Actually commentary gave it away, Cole sounded like he was waiting for the botch to happen

  • Bloodied

    After that 266 ending, I will forever think of the Knowhere bar scene as Rocket losing his smile…

  • El Acha

    The SUPER DRAGON moment made me laugh as fucking hell HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • Andrew Thomas Wolf

    thank you for what you do Maffew. As an avid old school as well as current wrestling fan, and a lover of abstract refrences and classic video game music, you have pretty much crafted what has become my favorite 15 minutes of any given day you upload. I think you do deserve to get paid for this

  • Angel Camacho

    (On 265)

    When 2 Rumble winners get booed 2 years in a row, you’d think you’d realize by now you’re doing something wrong…

    The look on Rock’s face says it all. He had better reception from reviews of The Tooth Fairy! XD

    For the record, I don’t mind that Reigns won the Rumble, but I don’t want to see Reigns vs Lesnar at WrestleMania. I Don’t Want Lesnar as Champ Anymore! You expect to believe that Reigns (or Bryan) can beat Lesnar when Cena couldn’t? Uh-uh, I call shenanigans!

    Gotta listen to Jericho’s podcast more often! XD

    (On 266)

    Hard to take Cesaro seriously after that botch. XD

    I said it before & I’ll say it again, I nominate that Rusev flag botch for Best Botch in 2015! XD

    • Catherine Bouey

      “When 2 Rumble winners get booed 2 years in a row, you’d think you’d realize by now you’re doing something wrong…”

      Yeah booking a rumble in Pennsylvana twice.

      • Fran Dechant


        Yeah, I’m not defending the sloppy Royal Rumble, but having PPV in Philly is always going to turn into disaster. No matter what WWE(even if they do good), people there will whine and ruin the show.

        • 3D

          No they won’t. If it’s booked well they will put it over. Don’t blame the crowd for a shitty show.

          It’s true that booking it in Philly when you KNOW in advance you’re going to book a show that is bad, makes no sense. But to take it one step further and say the crowd will reject ANYTHING they do, is wrong. They, or any smark audience, would have eaten up a well-booked show. Look at One Night Stand.

          • Catherine Bouey

            Which one?

            *The one from 2005 that consisted entirely of ECW alums

            *The one from 2006 which had it’s card partially filled with non ECW wrestlers and which people only remember because of the smarky as hell crowd shitting all over Orton & Cena who later on that same night dropped the title to a glorified spot monkey just because.

            The one from 2007 which featured far less ECW alums on the card and featured The Great Khali in the main event.


            The final one from 2008 which featured not a single ECW star on the card.

            * ONS 05 and 06 were both held in New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom which has held it’s fair share of ECW events and most certainly did not play a hand in the reception for either show (which we know is a lie).

  • naturalbrianandrews

    These have been getting progressively better after quite the lull in quality. Good on ya

  • MPT

    Put more South Park footage and audio in the Botchamanias. Where’s the “Damn it snow” line from?

    • Codster9

      Kent Brockman from ‘The Simpsons’.

  • ColeYote

    Oh, I’m so glad I chose now to get into RoH.

  • MPT

    Where was the laugh from in 4:34, where’s the Bloody Owl clip from, and where’s the prosthetic leg audio from?

    • Bloodied

      Not sure about the owl, but the laugh is JK Simmons as J Jonah Jameson in Spiderman 2 and the leg stuff is from Guardians of the Galaxy

  • ColeYote

    And once again, 1PW’s interlacing could kill!

  • Fullname J Warrington

    You’re not encoding these with interlacing, are you? Or are some of the videos you have to use already interlaced? I’m assuming the latter, but it’d explain the horizontal tearing around 12:00 of BM266 anyway.

    • Nukleon

      I think I told him this already (he didn’t respond then either), he’s not properly deinterlacing his DVD footage so the compression makes the combed fields look like shit. Not super important but it would be a marked improvement.

      • Fullname J Warrington

        hmm, I do wonder. I just find it hard to believe someone with this much editing experience would be dropping the ball on encoding *with* interlacing, so you could well be correct that he’s not deinterlacing the original footage.

  • John C. Reilly

    There was a great Talks Too Much moment in the Rumble where Natalya pretty much yells Electric Chair with Nikki Bella already in position.

  • Skull Kid

    Loved the Shining bit
    and that ending is great i would mark out if ROllins came out drssed as 1960’s Batman
    Love the Goldeneye song, and FF VIII song.
    Cesaro really does need a new theme.

  • Lawrence Henderson

    good pick on the wildhearts song.

  • pik_3000

    Seth Rollins is well on his way to becoming the biggest bi$exual p0rnstar of all time….When Seth was younger he was desperate for money and open to exploring his se×uality he realized he was g@y so he became a softcore g@y p0rn star/cyberfights qu€€r…Then he made it to the WWE and wanted to fit in the boys so he started acting like he was into women by dating some corn fed loopy c**t….Seth liked his gf but then he met that NXT chick who he heard has an enlarged cl¡t that reminds Seth of a c0cķ and she agreed to use a str@p on to f**k him so Seth cheated on on his gf and she leaked the photos…..Seth Rollins is the biggest embarrassment in professional wrestling and he deserves to be fired. 

    Seth Rollins did G@y s0ftcore p0rn look up Tyler Black cyberfights for proof.

  • Shahbaz Nayyar

    Barely any IMPACT wrestling.. :/

    • Catherine Bouey

      They’re on Destination America what do you want?

      • Shahbaz Nayyar

        They’re barely featured on Botchamania..

        • MaffewOfBotchamania

          They should fuck up more then.

  • Eleanor Pwnsevelt

    265 simpsons ending might be my new favorite botchamania ending

  • ybrevo

    ok, I’m an American and I died laughing when i heard the theme to “Are You Being Served.”

    Jericho/Barrett hilarious

    And the “Don’t You Forget About Me” was perfect!

    Keep it up guys!

  • Codster9

    I love Wade Barrett’s Wade Barrett impression.

    • MaffewOfBotchamania


  • Mr B

    Really enjoyed both of these. I’d like to make a suggestion for the next one. I watched Lockdown and of course the main event was scheduled to be 3 on 4 since Lashley didn’t want to join Angle’s team. The match had just gotten under way, the first two guys were out, and they went to commercial. The commercial was for next week’s Impact and the voice over guy asked something like ” Will Kurt Angle will continue to reign supreme? Or will the BDC strike back?” and as he said that they show a clip of Lashley in the cage spearing MVP.

    I don’t care if it was obvious Lashley would join the team… TNA gave away the surprise 4th partner, and which team would win, and the match had only just started!

    • MaffewOfBotchamania

      Thanks for this, this sounds good!

    • Andrew Thomas Wolf

      Jeez they are a mess

  • The YES Dude

    Every single botchamania will end now with the Iron Sheik thing. “Fuck You Bullshit!” xD

  • RockerDropper

    Another massive thumbs up Maf…Loved the batman finale.

  • JR.

    Okay, ill admit it, i lost it when the Despicable Me part came out.

  • Fajar

    Youtube is deleted and vimeo is blocked in my country, Indonesia. Would you like to fix it?

  • Kristopher Levine

    Man,that bit of imagery you presented us with the “Shattered Dreams Productions” right after Bryan was eliminated was amazing

  • Shake

    You know, to be fair everything IS near London

    I mean, the UK is comparatively small so it technically all is near London if you take into account how massive the US is in comparison. The distance between London and Longton (nice creativity) is comparatively tiny.

    Democracy wins again

  • anti_smar

    The “It’s still good! It’s still good!” Rumble part made me laugh out loud. PURE GENIUS!

  • funnybonesjones

    LOL! Fuck wwe is ridiculous.

  • Doc

    Is it just me or is the AYBS theme kinda sexy?

  • Bhazor

    “I’ll pay to take you out”

    Awww, Lesnar and Roman have a date.

  • the dude

    You know, I don’t know if Maffew did it on purpose, but I thought it was very insightful of him to use Homer Simpson’s “flying pig” reference on those terrible Ziggler/Ambrose eliminations, because it’s like WWE’s/Vince’s way of saying, “these midcarders will win the Rumble when pigs fly” sorta deal, I dunno, I looked into this too much, lol.

  • Cage

    Sound went out on 266:(

  • How it comes these are not on dailymotion?

  • pootietang

    Awesome story from BNB. I never would have guessed that was a botch, That’s what makes BNB a superstar as opposed to a guy like Roman who would have cried and run away in the same situation.

  • Kyle

    After Cena says “Gimme another,” you can hear hear him say “Hold on this time,” too.

  • Abe

    what Happened???? it’s not here….. WTF Is going on???

  • Anon Benoit

    Watashi wa tēburudesu – “I am the Table.” In Japanese.

  • Alex

    This video does not exist..
