Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and SImon (@simoncross3) return to the world of Joshi wrestling yet again as one of the most popular tag teams of the post-Crush Gals era ended up such heated rivals that they took part in this Hair vs. Hair match which had an end of match angle that many rate as one of the best in wrestling history. Will Lorcan and Simon ...…
 
It's a truncated discussion this time, as Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) have to contend with a clipped version of the latest five-star clash, a singles match between Toshiaki Kawada and Kenta Kobashi during the bruising and brutal Champions Carnival tournament. They follow up the match review with a broader discussion about th ...…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) follow up the previous AJW Dreamslam I interpromotional Joshi match with a second interpromotional match at Dreamslam II. The WWWA Tag titles are on the line and the winning team has to get two falls to claim them. Will they also claim five stars from either or both of these reviewers? Could any o ...…
 
A return to the world of Joshi as the mid-90s boom is in full swing as AJW sells out the Yokohama Arena for a series of inter-promotional matches. As well as commenting on this all-out sprint of a match, Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) ponder a number of aspects of wrestlng criticism, the validity of opinion, and even slip in a ...…
 
It's our first trip to Mexico, as Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) are treated to a bit of high-flying action and try to grapple with a different language of their shared love. Will the lack of comprehension at times affect how much they enjoy the match? Listen to find out.lmtyspod@gmail.com…
 
After a fairly contention-free first crack at a mutual Top 5 after their individual top 10s, Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) compare notes after watching another ten five-star and see which ones they like best, and what their definitive five should be. After that, they discuss another match that Dave Meltzer didn't rate five sta ...…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) loved the previous match where Kenta Kobashi and his lil' buddy Tsuyoshi Kikuchi challenged for the All-Asia tag titles. Now they are the defenders and encounter a previous enemy (for both Kobashi and Lorcan & Simon!) as Masanobu "The S**thouse" Fuchi brings up his own protege Ogawa. Will they hol ...…
 
After being the member of his team most likely to take the losing fall, five-star match mainstay Kenta Kobashi finds himself as the stronger team member this time as he partners with the Super Generation Army's junior heavyweight member Tsuyoshi Kikuchi as they challenge the perennial All Japan All-Asia Tag Team champions of the 90s in Doug Fur ...…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) adored the previous match involving these six wrestlers in their three-man combos and it was only the second match to receive unanimous five-star scores from Meltzer, Lorcan, and (most surprisingly) Simon! Let's see if the last match involving these two teams can match such critical heights...lmty ...…
 
The second War Games match to get the full five stars from Dave Meltzer, you'll rarely see a ring (or two) with a greater collection of talent than we see in this brutal clash between one of the greatest heel stables of all-time and an all-star babyface team looking to vanquish their hated rivals, even if buckets of blood are shed in the proces ...…
 
Whilst All Japan's heavyweight division may have been stealing all the five-star ratings from the main event scene, it was in New Japan that the best junior heavyweight matches were to be witnessed, and this final of the annual Top (later Best) of the Super Juniors was one to gain the full Meltzer five-out-of-five. Will Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) a ...…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) return to the ongoing feud between Jumbo's Army and the Super Generation Army as the two key trios of each group stand off again for faction superiority. The hits are flying, the submission holds are wrenched, the battle lines are drawn, and this epic encounter, often cited as the greatest six-man ...…
 
It's the first ever War Games match to be given the full five-star rating, and Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) are here to review it and see if it holds up and whether the wild chaos was a better way of presenting this type of match, compared to the very produced, structured format it now has in NXT. It's also the final match fe ...…
 
The first of three six-man tag team matches between the top two factions of early 90s All Japan to receive the full five-stars, Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) watch the Misawa-Tsuruta rivalry expand to include their team mates, and fought with every bit as much ferocity as last episode's all-time classic.lmtyspod@gmail.com…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) review a match that may be remembered more for its historical significance than its actual quality, so does the match itself hold up to a perfect score? Either way, they try to judge both the match and try to contextualise its importance to those of you who may not know that much about this. And b ...…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) have now watched (or at least tried to watch) the first twenty matches that Dave Melzer has rated five stars. This also happens to take them to end of the 80s, so what better time is there to compare notes, see which matches they rate the best individually before creating a consensus top 5? Well, ...…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) round out the first twenty matches and the decade of the 80s with the first gimmick match to get the perfect rating from Dave Meltzer, and the last five-star match from Ric Flair's annus mirabilis of 1989 as he looks to gain final revenge on Terry Funk after he attacked him and broke his neck. In ...…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) return to Japan to witness the early days of the championship that became a magnet for the Meltzer five stars, as Jumbo Tsuruta defends the recently created Triple Crown Championship against his perennial second-in-command Genichiro Tenryu. Can Tenryu finally usurp his superior? Like Robin beating ...…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) end their self-contained journey within the longer narrative, as the feud capper between Ric Flair and Ricky Steamboat produced not only another Meltzer endorsed five-star match at WrestleWar'89, but perhaps wrestling's closest thing to a definitive Citizen Kane-esque Greatest Match of All Time. L ...…
 
The venue may not be close to capacity, but that didn't stop Ric Flair and Ricky Steamboat attempting to tear the house down at the New Orleans Superdome. Steamboat defends his recently acquired NWA World Heavyweight Championship against Ric Flair under two out of three falls rules. This marathon match warranted a marathon discussion. Could Dav ...…
 
Like Endless, Nameless, Her Majesty and Mr. E's Beautiful Blues we're in secret track territory here, as Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) discover a house show title defence between the first and second chapters of the televised trilogy of Flair-Steamboat classics that Dave Meltzer happened to attend in person. It was also the fi ...…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) embark on a short mini-voyage within their larger narrative as they watch the first of four (that's right, FOUR!) consecutive matches between Ric Flair and Ricky Steamboat that formed, in the eyes of many, the greatest rivalry and some of the greatest matches in wrestling history. Do our two hosts ...…
 
Lorcanc (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) return to Japan and watch their first match with a man with a perennial of five-star matches over the next decade, as the young and spunky Toshiaki Kawada teams up with Genichiro Tenryu against the monster gaijin team of Stan Hansen & Terry "Bamm Bamm" Gordylmtyspod@gmail.com…
 
The third and final match between Ric Flair and Barry Windham. This time, Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) are reliant on a Good Samaritan who was willing to lug around a big 80s camcorder in order to capture the NWA World Championship match that main evented this year's Crockett Cup tournament. Will Windham finally be able to fu ...…
 
Sorry for the slight delay, a planned episode had to be aborted and we're back to the list as we return to New Japan Pro Wrestling for the first time since our first episode. Whilst Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) have already covered matches involving the great All Japan wrestlers of the 90s (Misawa, Kawada, Kobashi, Taue) this ...…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross) reach the double-digits as they return to the world of Joshi with a clash of tag team partners that felt every bit as seismic as when the Mega Powers exploded a few years later. Let's see if Lorcan and Simon's hearing has improved enough to hear themselves talk after watching a match that might hav ...…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) watch the second of three matches between NWA World Champion Ric Flair and pretender to the throne Barry Windham that Dave Meltzer rated five stars.

Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) have a quick chat about the highlights package for the match with perhaps the most unlikely wrestlers to gain a five-star rating from Dave Meltzer.lmtyspod@gmail.com
 
Apologies for the poor quality audio on this one. We had to rely on our backup recording.

Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) watch the first 5-star match to feature the wrestler to have taken part in the highest number of perfect matches in the eyes of Dave Meltzer - the late, great Mitsuharu Misawa. In his first match, Misawa still wrestled under the hood of the second incarnation of Tiger Mask to face Kuniaki Kobayash ...…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) have a job on their hands trying to keep sense of the chaos going on in this one. It's the All Japan Real World Tag League and it's as close to a tavern brawl as it is a wrestling match.Get in touch with us at lmtyspod@gmail.com. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and tell your friends!…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) enter the world of shoot-style wrestling, for a short period of time perhaps the hottest style in the entire industry. One of us really hated it! Listen to find out which one!lmtyspod@gmail.com

Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) do their third annual State of the Nation discussion after another eventful year for the wrestling industry has come and passed.

Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) take a final analytical look and the penultimate and last episodes of WOS Wrestling. Will it be a one-and-done? What went right? What went wrong? Who shone brightest? Our two hosts ponder all these questions and more.
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) discuss the eighth episode of WOS Wrestling. With only two episodes left to go, are the people in charge making the right decisions to keep the show going after the tenth episode as an ongoing concern? Listen to Simon and Lorcan's assessment of the whole shebang!…
 
Seven episodes down, three to go. Let's do this thing@lorcanmullan and @simoncross3
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) are past the halfway point with the new series of WOS Wrestling and this week they review a WOS Championship match, the final of the WOS Tag Team Championship tournament, a feud-ending submission match, and top face takes on two at once in a handicap match.…

It's been thirty years since British wrestling left the UK's terrestrial TV channels. But with the British scene in the rudest health it's been since those years, ITV have decided to take the plunge again and ride this wave, couple it with nostalgia, and hope that it turns into the latest unlikely subject matter to become a hit show that millio ...…
 
It sometimes feels that the amount of time people have spoken about restoring the prestige of the WWF/WWE Intercontinental Championship has now far exceeded the length of time when this title was considered 'prestigious'In truth, it's a championship that has always had its ups and downs, and Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) chart ...…
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross) continue their discussion on the career of The Undertaker by discussing 'The Myth', or rather, the presentation. From his entrances to his costumes, The Undertaker's constant image reinvention is one of the main reasons he had such longevity.
 
Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) end their three-part discussion of The Undertaker by trying to place him in an historical context. What did he mean in the past, what does he look like in the modern context, and where might he finally be positioned as when the final chapter is written and the in-ring performer is only ever spoken ...…
 
To try to come close to summing up The Undertaker as a performer, a character, and his overall legacy in the WWE and the wider world of pro wrestling in only one episode would create an epic of such mammoth proportions very few would have the stamina to listen to it all in one go.With that in mind, Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3 ...…
 
From The Mega Powers to The Bar, with the likes of The Brothers of Destruction and The Rock n' Sock Connection in between, many of the most popular, if often short-lived tag teams of recent years have come from taking two separately established stars and combining them into wrestling's equivalent of a supergroup. But which are the Crosby, Still ...…
 
If anything can be art, it's fair to say that any item can be used as a weapon (as long as it's behind the ref's back) in a wrestling match.Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) discuss the various objects used over the years for the upper-hand in an incident of chicanery, or in more recent years the basis of a number of popular match ...…
