– This week on Episode Eight of the Steve Corino Show, Steve and Dan discuss the all time question “Does Disney have too much time on their hands?”, who will be in MITB World Heavyweight match, the current state of the WWE roster among many other things, and if that’s not enough Steve announces a brand new contest. This week’s guest is the original lady of honor who was in the first segment of the very first Ring of Honor Show, the one and only co-promoter of and colour commentator in Shimmer Wrestling, Allison Danger. Plus once again Dan McGinn throws a conspiracy that somehow Steve knows Allison like Steve knows American Tiger (click here to check out that episode). A big clue is given on who will be the guest next week and then Steve rounds up with questions for the Corino nation. If you have suggestions for guests or questions for the King Of Old School please tweet them to @SteveCorinoShow.
– This week on Episode Eleven of the Kevin Kelly Show, join the voice of ROH and one of the many voices of The Place to Be talk about Daniel Bryan being stripped of the World Heavyweight Championship, the demise of The Shield, and Ring of Honor’s return to Pay Per View with Best in the World. This week’s interview is with one half of the current ROH Tag Team Champions, Bobby Fish. After the interview sees another round of Urban Legends Of Wrestling where Justin Rozzero gives Kevin Kelly a chance to debunk some urban myths of wrestling, they talk about the World Cup among other things, hit the weekly trending topics and finish up on the show with the AsKKevin questions. If you have questions for the former voice of the WWE and the current voice of Ring of Honor please tweet @place2benation using the hashtag #AskKevin.
Until then always….
