It's Critic week here on The Maine Event Podcast so grab your popcorn, coca-cola and some sour patch kids because we've got a blast from the past for ya. Back in the 80's and 90's when Hulkamania was running wild, Hollywood came knocking on the Hulkster's door. No Hold's Barred was wildly successful and WWF even worked it into a pretty memorable SummerSlam in 1989. Then Hogan followed it up with this gem; Suburban Commando. Both Harmon and Fashion remember watching this movie when they were young 10 year old hard core WWF fans. For one host of the podcast the nostalgia still holds strong and he loves this slapstick filled film. For the other host, he seems to have lost the kid inside and views it as a snobby adult rolling his eyes and sighing any chance he gets. Tune in to hear the two review this Hogan era cult classic.
Also, Kennebec Journal Sports Writer, David Dyer, writes in to the show with a review and shares his feelings and thoughts on the film.
And finally, Independant Wrestler, Matt Mahoney leaves us a voicemail telling us why he denied our invite to be the 3rd man this week. The dude is ruthless!
After an unsuspecting week off we're back and so is fantasy fun week. This time around we're holding a tournament consisting of made up Survivor Series teams. Greg Marston joins us for his second week in a row to be the third man. Some interesting picks all around. Teams consisted of Current Raw, Current Smackdown, Current Women, Legendary Men and Legendary Women. Who made it to he finals? Listen to find out and then head on over to our Twitter, @MaineEventPod, to vote on the final match up and crown the ultimate team of Survivors.
Greg "Gregulator" Marston fills in for the absent BBH for this Month In Review episode. Jonny and Gregulator discuss the highs and lows from the WWE PPV, TLC. They also chat about other happenings around the WWE world such as Neville's walk out, Enzo's rise and the need to shove a mic in the face of superstars immediately after a match. Also, the guys throw names of WWE superstars at eachother and discuss their current situations in the company.
Thanks to our awesome listeners and followers on Twitter, Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies won our scary movie poll and was selected as the movie of the month for October. Its terrifying. Not so much in the sense where the blood and gore will frighten you but just in the sense that this movie actually was made. The premise sounds viable enough. Some of the most famous pro wrestlers in the world get booked for a private show only to soon realize that its a revenge scheme plotted by an evil summoner of the undead. Yeah thats pretty much it. Roddy Piper tries valiantly to polish this turd but even the great Hot Rod himself can't save it. But you can save an hour and half of your life and $4 if you just listen to Jonny and Harmon review this film.......yeah "film" thats it.

Who doesn't love a Zombie Apocalypse? Who doesn't love imagining their dream team of fellow survivors? Well, for fantasy fun week we craft teams of WWE superstars who we would want by our sides when the hoards start coming our way. Jonny and Harmon each pick five superstars along with some honorable mentions to fight and live side by side with in the face of the walking dead.
This week, we reel in an unbelievably awesome guest in Ashley Vox and the interview couldn't of gone any more swimmingly. Puns are great huh? Ashley is one half of the super fun Team Sea Stars with her sister Delmi Exo. She's also the reigning Chaotic Women's Champion. She talks to us about growing up in a bad neighborhood, wrestling her sister in the living room and how she began training for the ring. All while quietly eating a pint of strawberries. We share a ton of laughs and Ashley admits to wanting to steal Jonny's 4 year old. She's so outgoing and fun this interview was like shooting fish in a barrel. Pun City, Fish!
September was a busy month. Especially the end of September. Harmon and Jonny attended a bunch of local shows this past weekend; NAWA, Limitless Wrestling's "Question The Answers" and Pro Wrestling Takeover's debut show. And then WWE's RAW brand brought us No Mercy on Sunday night. So much wrestling, so little time. The boys talk about it all in this action packed episode.
If theres one thing we love here at the Maine Event Podcast its a tournament. The Mae Young Classic was super fun and put some of independent wrestling's best females on display for the WWE Universe to see. They did not disappoint. Jonny and Harmon talk what they liked and disliked about the Network Exclusive, the results and who WWE should sign to a contract.
The boys also share some of their favorite Bobby Heenan moments. "The Brain" sadly passed away after battling numerous health issues.
Also, Mike Crockett from The WPAN leaves us voicemail to tell us that "Kingpin" Brian Milonas worked us last week regarding his feelings about Russell Madness.
This episode is bananas! We get ROH top prospect and one half of the Wrestling Podcast about Nothing, KingPin Brian Milonas, to come on the show and review the movie Russell Madness. It's part of the Air Bud Entertainment Group and like the rest of the films in this genre it places a dog, Russell, in an unordinary sports role. This time its the professional wrestling ring against Johnny Mundo! And he has a monkey for a trainer!
Jonny, Harmon and The Kingpin share some laughs breaking down the characters and plot in this film which is clearly aimed at children. Being 3 guys in their 30's, they're laughing for different reasons other than the constant monkey puns.
