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.

Seriously, what are the rules for a flag match?

Did SummerSlam deliver as WWE’s 2nd most important PPV of the year? Who amongst the ClobberCast was underwhelmed? Did the shocking results of the main event get us pumped for what’s next? Did the G1 Climax feature the best wrestling in the world? What makes for a 5-star match? Should you watch TNA? Will you watch AAA or GFW? When will Damien Sandow fulfill our absurd prediction? What’s a flag match?! Hank, Toben and Maya have the “answers” to those questions and more.

In this bonus episode of the ClobberCast, Hank Peters introduces the listeners to the world of New Japan Pro Wrestling and talks about the G1 Climax Tournament. Hank also tries to get Socks Mahoney to talk about the recent cancellation of TNA Impact Wrestling by Spike TV, but quickly spirals into a conversation about bad wrestling t-shirts. Also Hank forgets to upload this episode to tumblr about 3 days late.

The ClobberCast runs mild on Battleground, as Toben and Maya dissect why they felt WWE’s latest PPV event failed to deliver in some key areas. However, they’re mostly cool with the direction of current feuds, even if they worry about John Cena hustling, loyaling and respecting his way to an odds-overcoming victory at SummerSlam.

ClobberCast is back and better than ever (?)! Hank and Toben are joined by the podcast’s mysterious new third man, former guest and Space Money Octagon co-founder Maya Hansen. Also joining in on the wrasslin’ chatter is THE ULTIMATE MARK ULTIMATE MARKOUT of the internet.

The stable is at full strength to go over the highlights of Money in the Bank, analyze current WWE feuds, returns and developments. Also, we relive the hours-long drama of 7-2-14 regarding a favorite women’s wrestler. What are PWG BOLA, NJPW and DDT Puroresuringu and are any of them contagious? Hank and TUMUM explain. And we introduce a new segment that’s sure to end in disappointment. There’s a bunch of crazy rambling in between all that and something about empowering mud matches and Damien Sandow kissing people.

ClobberCast reflects on Extreme Rules, tries to answer ring attire questions and discusses Scooby-Doo’s wrasslin’ adventure.

Toben and Hank welcome Meeks to the ClobberCast. After watching “Scooby-Doo! WrestleMania Mystery,” an episode of RAW and WWE’ Extreme Rules, they’re all in on wrestling – but why?
Questions must be answered! Like, is Bray Wyatt’s feud with John Cena losing steam? Does WWE have a problem portraying women? Is Kane the Devil’s favorite demon with no regard for life but also a pro wrestler contracted to abide by the rules of WWE? More importantly – is Adam Rose’s fashion consultant stealing designs from the anime Utena? What’s the secret behind Cesaro’s jacket? Is Paige wearing Doc Martens in matches more than just a baller fashion choice? All this and more will be revealed!
