ClobberCast
An amateur podcast about professional wrestling.

Maya Hansen, Toben Shelby, and Stevo

Three friends gather on an irregular basis to casually discuss and dissect simulated violence as storytelling in its many forms around the world. AEW, WWE, NJPW, PWG, Stardom, ROH, CMLL, and whatever else catches our fancy. It ain't ballet, but it is amazing, stupid, hilarious, weird, confusing, and beautiful. It's professional wrestling, and there's nothing quite like it. Let's talk about it.

Wwwrrestling? ClobberCast returns at 2/3rds strength to talk about the state of things and which wrestling we’re using as comfort food in the midst of a pandemic hunker-down. Did WrestleMania really happen? Did Being the Elite just become AEW: West Coast? What would a good wrestling video game look like? Did WWE sacrifice the careers of dozens of wrestlers and employees literally a day after getting them declared “essential workers” even though the company is still projected to make millions in profit and isn’t actually facing bankruptcy or closure like thousands of businesses around the world?

Pick a side! It’s time to talk about the shifting TV wrestling landscape and what it means for a bunch of wrestling fans who don’t have cable or Nielsen boxes…
Also, was this year’s G1 the best big tournament of recent memory? What’s the plan with Naito – will he ever kick that football Lucy is holding? Is The Fiend scary or have wrestling fans just not seen many horror movies?
We also highlight some of the happenings from NXT and Pro Wrestling EVE.

NJPW’s head drop challenge, Moxley, KENTA, best of the flippy jumpers, AEW shouldn’t make me say “Double” after pronouncing the “W” in “AEW'” EVE, blood money, mobile wrestling game addiction, and more, somehow!

AKA: Sh*t, is this the WrestleMania One?

The ClobberCast gang crawls out from under the overturned announce table to reflect on that big wrestle thing and the other wrestle things surrounding it. We also catch up on some of the latest New Japan and Stardom happenings. Some of us saw a WrestlePro show, live and in person. Also, NXT’s recent music choices have driven one of us to madness. And can we both be intrigued by AEW and also sick of talking about it? Finally, we read some internet news and listener emails, while destroying ourselves with hot sauce.

“It is all a Dream, a grotesque and foolish dream. Nothing exists but you. And You are but a Thought — a vagrant Thought, a useless Thought, a homeless Thought, wandering forlorn among the empty eternities.”

We’re just all wandering on this path, seeking meaning in this existence as wrestling fans. Is the road to WrestleMania littered with broken dreams and unfulfilled promises? Has what remaining magic the Bullet Club had been killed entirely? Does Stardom’s new website spark joy? Is EVE and the NJ Cup enough to lift us out of this wallowing pit? Is Fighting With My Family the best movie that WWE Studios has ever made?
