AEW Dynamite 12/30/20 Review - A TRIBUTE TO MR. BRODIE LEE!

December 31st, 2020

Solomonster recaps the finest two hours of AEW Dynamite the company has ever produced, paying tribute to the life and legacy of Jon Huber a/k/a Brodie Lee.  Rest easy, big man.

Sound Off 684 - THE LIFE AND DEVASTATING DEATH OF BRODIE LEE

December 27th, 2020

On Saturday, the wrestling world shockingly lost Brodie Lee (formerly Luke Harper) at just 41 years old.  More importantly, Jon Huber leaves behind a wife and two children who no longer have their father.  From the outpouring of love he has received, it was a life well lived.  This week, I try to do his life and career justice, but it's hard to come to grips with how something like this could happen.  Tomorrow isn't promised, so make the most of today.  Rest well, Jon.

On this episode, we're also covering the Slammy Awards and thoughts on the picks for Superstar of the Year and Match of the Year... WWE leaning on the legends to help ring in the new year... Ricochet's promo from Raw Talk and what needs to happen RIGHT NOW to help salvage his WWE career... my early picks for who should win the men's and women's Royal Rumble matches (and who absolutely should NOT)... Sting confirms that he DOES plan to wrestle for AEW, but in a specific type of match... and THIS WEEK IN HISTORY covers Bob Backlund losing the WWE title to The Iron Sheik and who inspired his heel persona 10 years later, Vader's New Japan debut and the fan riot that led to them being banned from Sumo Hall, Goldberg's streak comes to an end and the Million Dollar Man mistakes the Billion Dollar Princess for a HANDSOME little boy?

WWE TLC 2020 Review - I HOPE YOU LIKE YOUR FIEND EXTRA CRISPY!

December 21st, 2020

Solomonster reviews the final PPV of the year, WWE TLC 2020, a very good show overall and, in fact, one of their best shows of the year.  Featuring two excellent TLC matches, a Money in the Bank cash-in, the return of The Queen and Randy Orton committing first-degree murder by turning The Fiend into Burning Man.  Don't let this one good show distract you from the fact that Vince McMahon must resign immediately as the head of WWE creative.

Sound Off 683 - THERE IS ONLY *ONE WAY* TO TRY TO FIX WWE CREATIVE

December 20th, 2020

It's the most important episode of the year as I discuss the total collapse of Monday Night Raw ratings, but also overall interest in what was once a must-see show.  You're going to hear a lot of ideas and suggestions from various podcasts this week about how to fix the problem, and they're all wrong.  There is only ONE WAY to begin to fix this problem and I'm going to tell you what that is.  Santa Solomonster also brings TLC 2020 PREDICTIONS for all the boys and girls... news on Matt Riddle's new WWE contract... Ric Flair claims a physical WWE Hall of Fame is in the works... police charge a man with cyberbullying Hana Kimura before her death... what baseball legend Hank Aaron (and a fax from Mark Madden) had to do with the demise of Bill Watts in WCW... and THIS WEEK IN HISTORY talks the stabbing incident that led to Rikidozan's death, Madusa throws the WWE Women's title in the trash on Nitro, Goldberg ends Bret Hart's career with one kick, The Shield debuts in an epic TLC match and the McMahon family apologizes for their crappy TV show.

AEW Dynamite 12/16/20 Review - STING SHOWS UP AND DOESN’T DO VERY MUCH

December 17th, 2020

Solomonster talks AEW Dynamite for December 16th, a very average episode that at least put the focus on building some of its younger stars and less established faces.  Sting showed up and didn't do much of anything, why he does NOT need to appear on the show every week and Kenny Omega learns the identity of his next challenger for the AEW World title.  Plus, Cody and Brandi make a major announcement and thoughts on Omega reuniting with Bullet Club members Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows for a match on next month's Impact Wrestling "Hard to Kill" PPV.

December 13th, 2020

"Tiny" Lister passed away this week and Solomonster remembers his time as ZEUS, both in the movie No Holds Barred and on WWE television, what he claimed the original plans were, his awful match with Abdullah the Butcher and his brief stint in WCW... the rumored top matches planned for WrestleMania next year, Bill Goldberg already hyping a match against Roman Reigns, why it should NOT happen at Mania and three far better choices as potential opponents for Roman... Vince McMahon orders KEITH LEE, among others, back to the Performance Center for "refinement" and why McMahon obviously doesn't think very highly of the current roster... one change WWE should make for THE HARDY BROS team to work with Jeff Hardy and Matt Riddle... THE PIGEONS ARE WAITING FOR YOU, BARON CORBIN... thoughts on the AEW crossover last week on Impact Wrestling, members of the AEW roster LIVID over criticism from Jim Ross and why JR is absolutely right in what he said... and THIS WEEK IN HISTORY talks the beginning of the end for the Dynamite Kid, the night Vince McMahon tried to sabotage a unification match between Jerry Lawler and Kerry Von Erich, Miss Kitty flashes the world on PPV and Chris Jericho beats Stone Cold and The Rock in the same night!
