    I had my reservations about the show because it’s doing topics that have been done ad nauseam. But after watching the first 3 shows of Brody, Randy and Liz and Montreal Screwjob, the show is absolutely fantastic. Just great, insightful, nothing feels repetitious and for an hour shows just goes by real fast. Wonderful show.

  2. I’ve enjoyed the shows as well. I can never get enough of the Montreal screwjob coverage because of how significant the event was, all the drama behind it, and how it likely changed so much within the industry, considering it seemingly opened the door to the heel “Mr. McMahon” character which helped turn the tide for WWF in the ratings war with WCW.

    One new thing I found interesting was when they were discussing Shawn putting Bret in the sharpshooter, which had been planned ahead of time. Bret commented that Shawn didn’t even apply it right and that he (Bret) had to move one leg so Shawn did it correctly. They then showed the clip and that’s exactly what happened. I thought it was amazing that even knowing things could very well get screwy, Bret still acted like a pro and took the time to fix the error and no one probably even noticed.
