Well howdy doody Bored Wrestling Fans! It’s Mark Noyce here with the first episode of what I called “The View From Britain”. “A British Point Of View” is taken. Damn Wrestlezone. Without Impact to review I figured we needed some weekly content and I sometimes don’t feel like writing so asked Joe if I could just record a quick little thing. It’s all explained in the podcast. I don’t know if this will be a weekly thing, but we’ll see what happens.

This is pretty much the only response I have to the Vince/Austin podcast that hasn’t really been said by anyone else yet. It’s my response to Vince’s claim that the guys in the back aren’t willing to push the envelope anymore and while I agree that it’s true, I’m honestly not surprised they don’t.
Monday night after RAW, the WWE Network aired a special “Stone Cold Podcast,” where Steve Austin’s guest was WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. At the end of the show, Austin asked Mr. McMahon where people could go to offer suggestions for WWE. Vince claims he listens to his audience, referring to the live audience, but Austin insisted that they could send their thoughts to the WWE and Vince McMahon’s Twitter accounts. I saw a great post from @KellettFilm on Twitter with a list of things he would like to see, and I agreed with a lot of his list, and some of his things, in my own words, may show up here. That said, here is my idea of what I’d personally like to see from World Wrestling Entertainment.
This week on BWFRadio, we talk about the fallout from WWE Survivor Series, including the arrival of Sting, which the crew is split on as far as how big of a deal it actually was. We discuss the following night on RAW, and our thoughts about the Anonymous RAW General Manager returning next week, despite having been revealed as Hornswoggle a while back. We praise Lucha Underground as a must-see show for wrestling fans.
In the second half, we talk about what everybody is talking about – CM Punk’s appearance on Colt Cabana’s “Art of Wrestling” podcast. We try to be objective as we talk about such topics as Punk’s accusations against WWE’s doctor (including a story from 2010 revolving around last week’s guest Charlie Haas), Triple H’s reputation for not putting talent over, and of course Ryback’s botches in matches and spots with Punk.
Also in the news, Yoshi Tatsu is injured at the hands of AJ Styles, Scott Steiner signs with Global Force Wrestling, Jeff Hardy can work Canada (with some restrictions), and Mike Tenay may no longer be doing commentary when IMPACT returns on Destination America in January. All this and more on BWF Radio!
