Episode IV: A New HopeA long time ago in a wrestling promotion far, far away, Chigusa Nagayo had to retire. She did not approve, and a few months before Big Egg Wrestling Universe she announced a company of her own that would eventually become the next big player in joshi. Welcome to GAEA, whose first few signees are in the early matches that David…
 
You’ve been waiting for two whole episodes now; finally, some wrestling. We start our deep dive into every match at Big Egg Wrestling Universe with some of the biggest drawing stars in Japanese history - Chigusa Nagayo, Lioness Asuka and Jaguar Yokota were some of the biggest names of the 1980s, and they all made a comeback in November 1994. Meanwh…
 
A show like Big Egg Wrestling Universe takes a lot of build-up and demands some pomp and ceremony, so here we are, with David, George and Sarah bringing the pomp as we talk about the opening ceremony. Like London 2012, but with less Brunel and more Bull Nakano.SHOW NOTEShttp://www.imaintainthedoublefootstompissilly.com/big-egg-podcasting-universe-e…
 
Look everyone, it’s another wrestling podcast!

In the first of what will hopefully be a long-running series of interviews with luminaries of the grappling scene, mat maestro Daniel Makabe, in a chat recorded just before this year's Wrestlemania weekend, takes us through a hand-picked mixtape of his favourite puro matches, and tells us how they influenced his career and his thinking. With a dive…
 
George, Daniel (at least for the first half before having to attend to his new cats) and David turn their keen yet jaundiced eyes to WWE's annual extravaganza of grappling, glitz and godawful booking in the Triple P's Wrestlemania 36 special. It's a dizzying spiral of boneyards and bollocks as the lads debate who did more to earn a tag title shot o…
 
In these tough times, the good old Triple P is stepping up to the penalty spot, ready to ripple the back of your net with a Julian Dicks-style volley of content over the coming weeks. First up on the docket is an unreleased pilot from David’s in-stasis project Purotrash with Grand Exalted Viceroy of Channel Islands World Wrestling, Patrick W Reed (…
 
Join your host David Forrest for some highbrow literary chat as he introduces his guest George Twigg (who is in no way related to George Thompson of this podcast) to discuss his novel "The Rise and Fall of Rikidozan". In this, interview recorded last year and released now in its entirety for the first time, the author gives some insight into his cr…
 
In this special bonus episode, George and David discuss last month's respective trips to New York and Tokyo, and recount the many wrestling shows they took in while abroad. Join your guides on an open-top bus tour that takes in Statto's incredibly unwise decision to go from JFK Airport straight to a Smackdown taping, lucha libre at MSG, David's ven…
 
Greetings grapple fans! In this episode, David and George (sans Daniel, who is off crowdfunding for his proposed 50-foot statue of Nicky Weaver) take a hiatus from the Match Microscope series to bring the first in a special two-part look at Japanese wrestlers in British wrestling. This edition covers three matches from the World of Sport era, in wh…
 
The boys are back for the first in a trio of Match Microscope episodes, our (relatively) quick and snappy deep dives into famous puro matches. First up, we discuss the legendary 1984 NWA title match between horse-faced hunk Kerry Von Erich and notorious country music mogul "Colonel" Jumbo Tsuruta, which sees Daniel, David and Statto cover a horrend…
 
Join Superstar DJ Rex Haberdasher (definitely not Statto doing a bad 1950s American accent) for a rundown of ten of the best CD singles ever released by pro wrestlers working in Japan. From J-Pop on acid to an Elvis cover to an MMA star's dope flows to about half a dozen songs that sound like 70s cop show themes, and a weirdly high amount of synth …
 
The tea is not so much cold as absolute zero, but you don't listen to this podcast for the timeliness of the things we cover, do you? And if you do, we really hope you at least got something out of that episode where we reviewed Nick Bockwinkel vs. Billy Robinson. Join George, Daniel and David as they spit their vitriol and spurt their sweet balm o…
 
NOTE: At present this is a rough cut of the audio, a refined version will be going live within the next few days. Listen at your own risk! (Although we could say that about any of our episodes to be honest.)It's the most wonderful time of the year, the ladgter is very much in the offing, and it's time once again for the Puro Pourri Podcast to celeb…
 
When a Michinoku Pro match involving The Undertaker isn't even the weirdest thing covered in an episode, you know we're in for some fun.

It's about to come crashing down, and by gum I believe it's about to hurt inside. In the first of a two-parter, the hosts finally leave PRIDE behind and dive into an underappreciated but very interesting aspect of the Hulkamania era - what its biggest stars were getting up to in Japan. Just like his best friend's wife, you'll have to wait for the H…

Our dive into a trio of notable puro matches concludes with the last of our trilogy. But will it be more Return of the King than Return of the Jedi? (It's the former.)

They also somehow manage to mentio…
