Sound Off 329 - WHY DOLPH ZIGGLER DESERVES BETTER

May 25th, 2014

This week, Solomonster is upset by reports of Ric Flair being brought back to manage The Miz over Dolph Ziggler and explains why there's MUCH more to be gained by putting their efforts behind Ziggler, thoughts on a disappointing UK Raw, the debut of BO DALLAS on Smackdown (and why he was even better on this week's NXT), why Michael Cole gets a bad rap, NXT Takeover predictions, turning off a horrible edition of Impact and why TNA may be past the point of no return, incorporating UFC-style shoot fighting into the WWE product and why it's a bad idea, was Joey Styles a bust as Raw announcer, learning more about WWE's ex-head writer Chris Kreski and why more people should know about him, the death of Owen Hart and WWE's possible new DVD covering it, and this week in history, Randy Savage passes away - if Michael Jackson could get a hologram, then so should the Macho Man for a HOF induction!

Sound Off 327 - How NOT To Book Your World Champion

May 11th, 2014

It's a MOTHER'S DAY edition of the Sound Off!  But be forewarned, this show contains more profanity than usual, much of it directed towards the awful angle with Kane and Daniel Bryan last Monday and constant references to THE DEMON KANE.  We'll talk about how NOT to book your World champion, Mick Foley's warning to Bryan, merging the IC and US titles while doing a double turn with Sheamus and Bad News Barrett, awful WWE Network slogans, RACIST RUSEV, Kalisto makes his NXT debut, Delusional Dixie has a Twitter meltdown, MVP turns on Eric Young making TWO heel authority figures in TNA (as if one wasn't enough), thoughts on the debut of THE MENAGERIE, and this week in history... the only Japanese Royal Rumble ever and the FULL stories on WWF becoming WWE and THE PLANE RIDE FROM HELL.
