On the July 19th edition of Review-a-Smackdown Alex Greenfield can't remember the school where Becky Lynch learned to wrestle, stating it was the same place as Balor, Sabre & Havoc. The school he was trying to think of was NWA UK Hammerlock.

During episode 16 of Keep It 2000 "We Don't Wrestle Anymore" Brother Nate asks if Vampiro was hanging out with the Misfits & the Great Muta in the Dark Carnival. Nate seemed to be throwing in several time periods of Vampiro's career into one. While Vampiro did have a strong connection with the Misfits on screen they were never the Dark Carnival. That faction did have a band in it but that band was the Insane Clown Posse.
A brief run through for you. Vampiro was originally in the Deadpool that consisted of Raven and ICP, they were together in 99 until Raven quit. After that Vampiro would soon start showing up with the Misfits. Later in 2000 the Dark Carnival would be formed and that group had Vampiro, ICP, Great Muta & the Kiss Demon. Enjoy reviewing that guys.
The sheer amount of balloons is very reminiscent of the 2016 DNC, but I was mentioning the RNC due to the abundance of red balloons that dropped on Nitro (well, that & the fact that Russo & Bischoff probably voted for Trump in 2016...Lol!).

On the Thursday July 27th edition of Wht's Nxt, Braden and Bartender Dave are discussing the Simpsons episode "Stark Raving Dad" and the song, " Happy Birthday Lisa".
Braden asks if it was really Michael Jackson on that episode and Dave expresses his doubt that it was.
The real Michael Jackson did indeed provide the voice of "Michael Jackson" (Leon Kompowki) on the episode. He was credited under the pseudonym "John Jay Smith". However, it is not Michael singing the song. For that, they hired a Michael Jackson impersonator (Kipp Lennon). The reason for this is different depending on what you read. Either MJ wanted to try to fool his brothers into thinking it was actually him singing, even though it wasn't, or (perhaps more likely) Jackson couldn't sing due to contractual obligations. (Jackson was also uncredited for his work on the 1990 hit song "Do the Bartman".)
On the Simpsons soundtrack CD "Songs in the Key of Springfield", the composition of "Happy Birthday Lisa" is credited to "W.A. Mozart", again, for contractual reasons.
My girlfriend and I have a Tuesday ritual of listening to Review a Raw while I drive her to work. We were surprised by John's recollection of the movie My Girl. There are definitely scenes between Thomas Jay getting stung and the funeral scene.
Well..the movie is on the Sundance Channel right now so I noted every scene (at least 6) between Thomas Jay's glasses hitting the grass by the climbing tree and the beginning of the funeral scene which opens on Harry Sultenfuss greeting people outside the viewing room.
John..I hope you see this as me just having some fun.
1) Police arrive at the Sultenfuss Funeral home and tell Harry 2) Vada is feeding the goldfish she won at the fair when Harry enters and tells her what happened to Thomas Jay. 3) Vada is a portrayed as a hypochondriac through the whole movie and is so upset she runs to her doctors office and proclaims that she cant breathe because of the bee stings.
4) An ambulance brings Thomas Jay's body to the funeral home and Harry is there to help bring him in. 5) Shelly goes upstairs to Vada's room and leaves dinner outside her closed door. 6) A classmate/girl who knows Vada comes to the house to see how she is doing.
**My doorbell rang and I might have missed a scene**

On the August 31 edition of Keep It 2000, one of the OSW reviewers (I don't remember which one) asks the other if Mark McGwire appeared on "the softball" episode of The Simpsons and was told no.
To clarify, the reviewers were referring to episode 17 of season 3 ("Homer at the Bat") and it is true that McGwire was not one of the nine professional baseball players to appear on that episode. However, it should be noted that McGwire did appear on episode 2 of season 11 ("Brother's Little Helper").

On the September 11 edition of The LAW, Jason and Mouth discuss whether or not Shane McMahon was in a Hell in a Cell match before WrestleMania 32.
Mouth was correct in asserting that Shane had indeed competed in a Hell in a Cell match previous to that --along with Vince McMahon and Big Show against Shawn Michaels and Triple H at Unforgiven 2006, in Toronto-- however, Mouth was incorrect in stating that Shane had previously jumped off of a Hell in a Cell. The only time he has done that was at 'Mania 32.

At the very beginning of the Brusier Brody Wrestling's Last Rebel review John and Dan are trying to think if they have done Review-a-Wai together without Wai before and think they haven't. They actually have as the 2 reviewed Starrcade 95, which Wai was meant to review but he just didn't for whatever reason.

Review-a-Raw, Sept. 19, 2017 When discussing Goldust using the 'Dustin Rhodes' name on the latest Raw, John says that it was like he went back to '1998 Dustin Rhodes.' Dustin didn't use the name 'Dustin Rhodes' in 1998. He used the name 'Dustin Runnels.' His match against Bray Wyatt was the first time he wrestled under the name 'Dustin Rhodes' in WWE since the 1991 Royal Rumble.
Also, John and Wai discuss what it means to be a bastard. The term refers to someone born to unmarried parents.
WM X7 - During the gimmick battle royal John mentioned that the only links to last year's anniversary show were Volkoff and Sheik. Actually, in the battle royal alone you also get the Bushwhackers and One Man Gang. If you count the WWF World restaurant segment you can insert Snuka too.

On the Sept. 21 edition of Wht's NXT, Jason & Braden discuss the proper pronunciation of "cicada". Both /sɪˈkɑːdə/ ("sih-kah-da") and /sɪˈkeɪdə/ ("sih-kay-da") are acceptable. (I've always used the latter.)
