Episode 53 - Hell in a Cell Predictions

September 14, 2018

"Ladies and Gentlemen, this match is scheduled for one fall and will include the ritual sacrifice of Jeff Hardy's body and possibly soul.  This is the match that they put out there where we're all anticipating a moment that gets played in video packages for years to come.  This is a great match for both of these guys. Jeff's 42 years old now and he hasn't jumped off of everything in the world yet, and he's still looking for more." - Matthew Widdis 

 
The BCP wrestling panel is back and we're making our Hell in a Cell predictions!  Will we see some title changes? Will this PPV live up to the hype? Will this be Jeff Hardy's "Swant-ton Song"?  (Credit MSD for that one!) Find out what Bill Bodkin, MSD, and The Anti-Smark Matthew Widdis really think about this PPV's actual significance.

Episode 52 - Boardwalk Beatdown w/ James Ellsworth, Summer Rae, KC Navarro, & Serpentico

August 26, 2018

"I've started this hashtag: #RehireEllsworth and people seem to be behind it.  And hopefully you'll see me back on Smackdown Live real soon.  Well, maybe 205 Live. They got the Cruiserweight Title.  You never know.  I love those guys and how hard they work and I'm a big fan believe it or not.  I'd go in there and I'd be different obviously. It'd be broken right in half.  I think a lot of people would love seeing me there and a lot of people would be like why is he there? It'd get a big reaction either way I think. "   -James Ellsworth

The Stand Alone Wrestling Marquee Event Boardwalk Beatdown convention & show this summer was any wrestling fan's paradise.  The Bob Culture Podcast was on the scene and had the privelege of interviewing several amazing talents:  The lovely Miss Summer Rae, The man with two hands & always a fighting chance James Ellsworth, High Flyer Serpentico, and your NEW Stand Alone Wrestling Lightweight Champion, KC Navarro!

Episode 51 - Pro Wrestler Joe Gacy

August 22, 2018
"I like to think that being a champion for a company means that you're the face of that company.  Realistically, you holding the heavyweight or world championship for a company means that the company has faith in you.  Having a title for any company is a big deal.   The first time I won the CZW Heavyweight Championship, it was kind of surreal.  I was a big CZW fan before I started training there.  In a nutshell, me having it was accomplishing one of my dreams I set out to do."  - Joe Gacy on being a Champion 
 
Honored to have the opportunity to interview one of my all time favorite Indy Wrestlers, Mr. Joe Gacy in anticipation of his match at Boardwalk Beatdown this Saturday at the The Claridge in Atlantic City, NJ.   Joe talks about getting into the business, dream opponents, and strategy going into his tournament style match for the newly unveiled Stand Alone Heavyweight Championship.  The humble Gacy keeps it real in this interview and tells us what he hopes the future holds for him.  There is no doubt in my mind that the future is very bright for this hungry competitor.

Episode 50 - WWE Summerslam Predictions 2018

August 17, 2018
"The Roman Reigns This is my yard promo is the closest thing you will ever see to a Roman Reigns heel promo.  He is going to be the same middle of the road, baby-face that he's been for years.  Don't be surprised if Brock Lesnar retains the title. As much as we want to see Roman show up in a suit and cut a heel promo, it's not gonna happen because he sells merchandise.  Vince McMahon just got five billion dollars of TV rights, and he would love for Brock Lesnar to go into the Octagon with the title.  Dana White loves one thing more than the UFC, and that's money. I really think that Lesnar is leaving with that title."  - Bill Bodkin.
 
It's no holds barred on our latest WWE Summerslam Edition of The Bob Culture Podcast!  Our 50th Episode features wrestling panelists, Michael Vacchiano, Bill Bodin, Michael SD, and the Anti-smark himself! We discuss a lot of possible PPV title changes and a few resulting heel turns in the making.   Tune in to find out what we think about the Universal Title, the tag team division, possible returns, and the upcoming Evolution PPV.  This episode features music from It Lives, It Breathes!

Episode 48 - Pro Wrestler Frankie Pickard

July 24, 2018

"My goal is to keep the new generation of kids away from doing bad stuff on the streets.  They come in and see me perform and doing what I want to do.  If they're having fun watching wrestling, enjoying themselves, and staying off the streets, then I'm doing a good job.   That's what I want.  To keep the kids from doing bad things."  -Frankie Pickard   

 
Pro wrestler Frankie Pickard calls into the show to talk about how wrestling saved him from depression and a troubled childhood.  The former CZW Wired Champ and Medal of Valor winner shares his journey from fandom to becoming a legit champion under the tutelage of names like Drew Gulak, DJ Hyde, and Preacher Finneus James.  Be sure to see Frankie at Stand Alone Wrestling's Boardwalk Beatdown where you can also learn wrestling holds and how to cut promos from the wrestler himself!

July 20, 2018

Episode 45 - WWE Money in the Bank 2018 Predictions

June 14, 2018
"Part of the problem was that that belt did need Brock Lesnar.  It doesn't have that Harley Race, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan lineage.  It needed a shot of legitimacy.  That's what Lesnar gave it.  But it lasted too long.  And everything has suffered as a result.  There is no upper card on Raw right now because nobody's getting near that title."  - Matt Widdis
 
 
It's time to make our WWE Money in the Bank predictions for 2018 with the BCP wrestling panel.  
I'm joined by the human Wrestling Encyclopedia Michael Vacchiano, Jersey Campfire Production's Michael Camp, "The Anti-Smark" Matt Widdis, and former WWE Magazine writer and current The Pop Break.com senior writer, Michael Dworkis.  We talk possible cash-ins, title matches being absent from the card, and how the women's division is absolutely stealing the show.  Tune in for all our picks and music from local rockers It Lives, It Breathes.

"You have to make your own luck.  You have to go out and make your own opportunities.  No one's gonna come knocking at the door with a record deal.  The shit that happens in the movies, it doesn't happen like that.  You have to go out there and play.  I love it, and I'm trying to do more of it."  - Bobby Mahoney
