Elimination Chamber Picks 2019

February 16, 2019

"It's consistent storytelling which I'm always big on.  Charlotte has as of late been the thorn in Becky's side. It writes itself. It's not out of the blue. It's consistent.   Like  I said before TLC, Becky needs to lose the title and win the Rumble. Becky needs to go on to main event Wrestlemania.  I think adding Charlotte to the match makes it better.  Not trying to knock Ronda, because she could easily knock me out, but she got shook.  With a triple threat the real winners will be the fans" - <B>

 
 
It's time for our annual Elimination Chamber PPV picks, but first we dive into the Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, and Ronda Rousey internet reaction. Mike Vacc and the "Anti-Smark" Matthew Widdis cover all angles on every match, including some early Wrestlemania plans.  We even talk about who should grace the coveted WWE2k20 video game cover.  Keep it here for wrestle talk and tunage from our friends, It Lives, It Breathes.

Pro Wrestler turned Announcer, Mr. Dave Sturchio

February 5, 2019
I agreed with the Doctor and said it was time to step away. I had some cool memories with wrestling, but I said I have more to offer.  I'm good friends with Pat Kenney, who's Simon Diamond of ECW. He told me, "Dave,you never have to take another bump in wrestling, to make it in wrestling."  And then I look at stories like a Corey Graves, or a Nigel McGuinness, guys that got the short straw, but they made it.  And I was like, I can do this.  - Dave Sturchio
 
Today on the show, I'm honored to speak with former Pro Wrestler turned Announcer Mr. Dave Sturchio.  After many setbacks in and out of the ring, Dave discusses how he has continued to persevere as his career has taken him from the Indy scene to the main stage at Impact! Wrestling.  Outside of the ring Dave also inspires his students as a teacher and paraprofessional.  With a new attitude, and a positive outlook on life, the sky is truly the limit for this up and comer.

“SuperB Bowl” Picks

January 29, 2019

"I don't think it comes down to the offense in this game at all. I think it comes down to the defense.  Because the only way to stop Tom Brady and the New England Patriots is to put Tom Brady on his back.  You have to get him on the floor.  He does not like to get hit.  He gets super annoyed and frustrated. And when he gets frustrated he misses throws.  I think this could be a very low scoring game."  - Trevor Marden

 
 
The resident Bob Culture Podcast sports panel has assembled to analyze Sunday's "Big Game."   Tune in as Trevor Marden (Podcast Dummies/ Black Tooth Grin) and Tim Urig talk defense, experience, and final scores whilst dancing around using the words Super and Bowl in the same sentence!

Royal Rumble 2019 Picks

January 25, 2019

"Becky is fantastic with everything she does.  She's finally getting her due, after some time on the back burner.  She's the hottest commodity in the business overall, over the last few months. But she is not the company Ace of the woman's division. That is still Charlotte.  Not just in the eyes of the management, but if you watch their body language when they are out there together - two promos and a match, Charlotte can take that away.  I have Becky and maybe Tessa Blanchard as number 2 and 2A, but Charlotte is still number one in the world."  - Matthew Widdis

 
Let's get ready tooo  TALK .... about the Royal Rumble PPV! I'm joined by Pop Beak's Matthew Widdis, Podcast Dummies' Chris Demarco, and the returning Tim Urig as we play WWE 2k19! Keep it here for all of our picks plus surprise entrants and wildcards!  This episode features music from It Lives, It Breathes!

All Elite Wrestling Breakdown

January 9, 2019
"There are more things in the works that they couldn't announce today, but Cody told us after the rally they are very close to announcing more. He kind of alluded to that being a television deal. The big thing that everyone is talking about today is the signing of Chris Jericho.  Cody said they could have announced other things but he wanted fans to remember that big moment where the veteran - one of the biggest names in the business,  gave the proverbial rub to this young upstart promotion. "     - Jon Alba
 
 
We're talking all things All Elite Wrestling as we're joined by Living the Gimmick's Jon Alba on his way back from the AEW Press Conference

"Music is what brings everybody together, no matter what happens in the world.  If music is playing, it changes everything.  That's why we're doing this, and that's why I'm involved.  I want to bring joy to somebody, and that will bring me joy.   When I heard they were doing this,  I said I want to be part of it and jumped in.   It's not about record deals or or trying to please bar owners.  It's about bringing joy to someone else.  And that brings joy into our hearts."  - Eddie Testa

WWE TLC Predictions

December 14, 2018
"I feel like Asuka's just there to eat a pin. And it kills me to say that. Unfortunately, I feel like Lynch is going to drop the belt.  Now I think the benefits of this are that they're going to give her that Stone Cold-esque run that everyone's been clamoring for online.  I think she wins the Royal Rumble and she gets to the main event for the title. (Wrestlemania)  I can't see Becky Lynch not being in that main event.  She's white hot right now."  - Chris Demarco 
 
Tables, Ladders, and Chairs, oh my! It's time to make our WWE TLC predictions with the "Anti-Smark" , PopBreak.com 's Matthew Widdis and the debuting Chris Demarco of the Podcast Dummies Network!  We talk all things TLC as we look down the road to Wrestlemania!  Also tune in for music from It Lives, It Breathes!

Episode 58 - Brian Morelli & Jimmy Franklin of The Great Rock & Roll Time Machine 

December 10, 2018
"Being a big Springstein fan myself, I knew Steven Van Zandt did a lot of production for famous Christmas songs with the likes of Darlene Love, The E Street Band, etc.  I showed Jimmy Darlene Love's 'All Alone on Christmas' and I'm like, that's Clarence! The sound is so thick.  That was my model. I was like, this is what we need to re-create.  All the strings, the sax.  This is what this needs to be to emulate a Jersey Shore sounding tune for this time of year."   - Brian Morelli
 
 
This week on the Bob-cast, I'm joined by local rockers and friends, Brain Morelli and Jimmy Franklin.  The boys have played in a ton of Jersey bands over the years, and recently found tremendous success with The Great Rock & Roll Time Machine.   The fellas and I touch on the the local music scene and beyond, while discussing their new holiday single, "Show Me the Sleigh" based on Peter Frampton's "Show Me the Way"  Check out the new tunage here!
