TOTLB 095 Colorado Springs Comic Con 2018

And one more Colorado Springs Comic Con has come and gone! After the last two comic cons earlier in the year, Colorado Springs was a refreshing change of pace!! Much more relaxed, AND we did mostly coverage of panels, which is new to us! BUT, first things first, we have an interview to start off the show!

We spoke with Russell Nohelty from the upcoming anthology, Cthulhu Is Hard To Spell! You KNOW that we (especially Gabe) are HUGE fans of books like this, and we think you all will get a kick out of it! If you love Lovecraft THIS is the anthology to support on Kickstarter! This book is not a typical Lovecraft style story, and revolves much more around these beautiful/horrendous creatures! With seven days left in the kickstarter, don’t miss out on your chance to support this team, we will be!

The main bulk of this show is our rundown of the panels that we did while we were in attendance! After the main show, listen to our floor interviews with some of our favorite stalwarts at Colorado Springs Comic Con; Frankie Serna, Jessica Barnes, AC Canales, with new to the show Babs Webb, and to end the episode, we have an awesome interview with Ron Marz!!

Remember, you can ALWAYS let us know what you think! We can only think of so many things to talk about every other week, and would LOVE to get some feedback and ideas from all of you out there who are listening!! You can send mp3s and email to our email address. Also, join the conversations on our Facebook Page and Twitter Page. If you have good feedback, please leave it for us on iTunes and Stitcher!!

Some Time with Team Bestie

Some Time with Team Bestie

It isn’t every day that you get to sit in a room and listen to two icons of professional wrestling chat about their time in the WWE.  Today at Colorado Springs Comic Con we got to sit in a room with two icons and a few of our new friends. Trish Stratus, Amy Dumas (aka Lita), and Amy’s adorable puppy sat down for an intimate panel as Team Bestie.  With a conversation that was well off the rails in a few minutes and ranged from Tigger impressions to the time Amy “saved Trish’s life”.

First off, the timing of the panel was weird.  It started at the very opening of the con, and with the structure of the con’s space (which is in a mall) made finding the space for the panel a little hard to find.  As consequence by time the panel had started there were very few people in the room, but no matter, Trish and Amy got a rousing response when they came into the room.

Because it was so sparsely attended at first Trish and Amy felt comfortable to joke and talk about the fun that they had at the convention last year with a guy that they had met the year before.  He was funny and regaled us with his Alex Trebek, and Tigger impressions. Then we all got chance to ask questions.

Trish and Lita told us about their time in the WWE and how they feel they fit into the picture as some of the trail blazers of women’s wrestling in the modern era.  When asked how they felt about the WWE’s rules on men and women not fighting each other in the same way that they do on some of the indie promotions, they were both quick to remind us that in their time they were going toe to toe with the male wrestlers.

When an audience member asked if they would ever be on the show Total Divas (or if they ever had been for that matter) they mentioned something interesting about the show.  They have been told that the viewership of Total Divas is largely made up of non-wrestling fans. As far as being on the show, it sounds like they are just going to stick with wrestling.

Trish even regaled us with the story of the time Amy saved her life.  After defeating Stacy Keibler and Torrie Wilson during the WCW/WWF Invasion angle, Trish was backing up the V shaped ramp back into the locker rooms when she stepped back into a void where the two ramps met.  As she was falling Amy caught her by the elbow and rescued here from embarrassment and possibly death as Trish says (it all takes place at about 11:30 in the video below).

Their excitement for their upcoming matches coming on the WWe’s first all-female Pay Per View Evolution is palpable.  Stratus even talked about how she found out in the moment that she would be facing Alexa Bliss.  That when it was announced on Raw, her surprise was genuine. Her and Amy talked about how nervous they were to be in the pay per view to which the audience chanted, “You Still Got It!”

They do still got it!  From The Attitude Era until the first all-women’s pay per view on WWE; Trish Stratus and Amy Dumas have been there through it all, and hopefully they will be there through a whole lot more!
