For the third and final time, John Pollock and Wai Ting begrudgingly watch and review Heroes of Wrestling (1999), a show widely considered to be the worst wrestling event ever created.

Comparing how our opinions may have changed over the years, we discuss Jake “The Snake” Roberts’ infamous intoxicated appearance that led to an impromptu tag team main event involving Jim Neidhart, King Kong Bundy and Yokozuna; Captain Lou Albano’s affection for producer Bill Stone; and a bizarre love triangle between Greg Valentine, Sensational Sherri and George “The Animal” Steele.

Plus: The Iron Sheik, Scorpio vs. Julio Fantastico, Marty Janetty, and a diamond-in-the-rough fantastic promo from Tully Blanchard.

This edition of the Rewind-A-Wai is presented by Espresso Executive Producer, Brandon from New Jersey.

I assure you, the only way they’re going to need two hands to show their ratngs will be if they’re flipping Brandon the double-bird.

I appreciate how you guys have evolved and admit we all were wrong for laughing at Jake when it was a cry for help. Also I imagine Brandon from New Jersey is a guy who wears a backwards Mets baseball cap but Brandon Castro takes the hat off and has a pompadour haircut


I give the show a Zero.


Listening to the show right now and I’m absolutely howling with laughter. Heroes of wrestling might suck, but this podcast is extremely entertaining.
