Konnan's Podcast

http://traffic.libsyn.com/konnan/konnanshow5.mp3

An absolutely phenomenal show from Konnan, as he's only 5 shows into his podcasting career and he's totally got it down cold.  This particular episode is an hour-long interview with Dave Meltzer, and it's just so cool to hear Konnan completely shooting from the hip about whatever's on his mind because he doesn't give a shit about burning bridges at all.  I was legitimately LOLing while listening to it, like his spot-on analysis of why UFC on FOX 3 tanked so badly ("Who the fuck wants to see Jim Miller in the main event?") and his reminiscing about becoming a giant star in his early 20s ("Bitches were all over, throwing pussy at me everywhere I went.")  He just comes across as a genuinely fun guy who has an opinion on anything you throw at him.  Dave, meanwhile, is telling crazy stories about classic wrestling promotions and his early years writing the newsletter and his contacts and such.  It's tremendous fun and I'm totally adding it to my podcast collection.

  1. Konnan was hired by the main website of the forums I'm an admin of.  Never in my life have I seen/heard a more racist, homophobic, profanity filled person.  Apparently he's a bit different now.

  2. Been wanting to check it out, but I was letting it play out and seeing where it went.

  4. I was going to like this comment, but I'm gonna let it play out and see where it goes first.

  5. I seriously hope Brock and Zack Ryder become the biggest two stars in the history of wrestling just so this joke can die.

  6.  I was going to make a "let it play out" joke, but I'm gonna let it play out and see where it goes first.

  7. Sorry to threadjack, but has anyone been reading the @Crankyvince bath salts saga? Too funny.

  11. BATH SALTS AND FUCKING SUSTAINED ERECTIONS DON'T FUCKING GO HAND-IN-HAND, PAL.

  12. I liked how Konnan explained Jim Miller's (lack of) charisma: "He's not rye, he's not pumpernickel...he's WHITE BREAD, man."

  13. I heard enough Konnan on that God awful Lucha Libre Heroes del Ring game for ten lifetimes. When it comes to wrestling podcasts, it's Colt Cabana or nothing.

  14.  I never got around to playing that. Why was there so much of him?

  15.  He's both the top heel in all the story modes and one of the in-game commentators with Moody Jack.

    It takes a lot for me to have a wrestling game and not play it, and that one still sits on my shelf. It is a bad combination of cartoonish and frustratingly difficult in a not-fun, smash buttons kind of way.

    Worth it just for his impression of Bryan Alvarez running the carnival rides..

  17.  Yeah, that's more Konnan than I'd care for, too.

  18. Well the profanity is certainly still there. He also says he was diagnosed as manic-depressive at an early age.

  19. Getting old and not really that funny to begin with.

  20. We used to tease the fuck out of Konnan on that forum, trolling him with the most blatant homosexual bait and lauging when he turned into a raving homophobic lunatic. Dude reminded me of your average braindead hoodrat who thinks he's hot shit and that violence solves every problem. Maybe he's different in real life, I don't know.
