(27:15)-Josh asks Faarooq about returning and watching Survivor Series. Faarooq sounded like he was angry that he was taken off of Angle’s team, but he it sounded like he was addressing that anger at the powers that be more than Lesnar and Big Show. Faarooq also said there is no excuse for what they did to him. Faarooq said he won’t be sober watching Survivor Series and Bradshaw said he won’t be sober wrestling.

Josh asks about Angle’s surgery. Holly says he’s glad he had his surgery. He says that Angle took a shortcut but if it didn’t work he would still have to have the regular surgery. Bradshaw asks why he thinks these neck problems are happening to guys. Holly says that because it the human body is not supposed to deal with the pressure ands actions of what they do in the ring. Holly says that in the 90’s, it was easier to have simple wrestling matches. But now you have to do high-risk stuff to keep people’s attentions.

He says that if people don’t have enough talent in the business, they look for an excuse and look for people to point a finger at and blame them for their misfortune. He says that one person has a lawsuit pending so he can’t talk about that. He also said another person who he won’t name, but then subtly names Blue Meanie. He talks about Meanie being with porn star Jasmine St. Claire. He laughs about how she was on a video having sex with 500 guys. He laughs thinking that after having sex with 500 men, you would eventually run into people and say “Hi. Remember me? I was #298.” He goes on to say, “The son of a bitch is married to that and wants to say I picked on him? Good lord man, go to your local video store!”

Next week: Stevie Richards and Eddie Guerrero, but they are unconfirmed.

(1:12:45)-The show ends.

My Rundown: This is an absolutely hilarious show. Faarooq apparently being drunk is worth spending the time to listen to. Bradshaw picking on Josh the whole time was really funny. Even “Hardcore” Holly was a bit entertaining. I kid you not when I say to at least listen to this show over the weekend. Play some FreeCell on your computer and play the show in the background. It’s totally worth it.
