Bob Bamber is joined by Chris Lacey and Billy Johnson reviewing ECW Living Dangerously. The Sabu/Sandman match that ECW trailed as so violent they should air it (that was probably the tamest match on the show), Van Dam and Scorpio have an attempted classic that falls well short and Taz and Bam Bam Bigelow take a ride down under.

Bob Bamber is joined by Craig Wilson and Devinder Vargas reviewing the big news/context surrounding the firing of Sean Waltman (including possibly Bob's longest ever monologue on the show), before looking Uncensored which... is a bit rubbish. (The Waltman stuff is good though!)

Bob Bamber is joined by Wayne Lythgoe and Bob Colling to review WCW Superbrawl for 1998. We review Sting winning the WCW World Title, and why it probably won't last that long, the match with Goldberg that got Steven Regal fired, and try and solve the dilemma of the log-jam at the top of the roster.

Bob Bamber is joined by Chris Lacey and Billy Johnson reviewing ECW House Party 1998, probably one of their best events in the past few years including a barmy main event between Sabu and Sandman, and perhaps the first ever dive off of a ladder through the table on the outside.

Bob Bamber is joined by Rory McNamara, Erick Landstrom and Dan Welling for the all important end of year awards. The same 15 awards as last year, just as much controversy as normal and, much like last year, Scott Hall is a hot topic.

Chris White is joined by Bob Bamber reviewing UFC Ultimate Japan from December 1997. A quiet show by UFC standards, but still a noteworthy one including Randy Couture winning his first UFC title, Kazushi Sakuraba's only UFC appearance and a fight that had the decision changed and then was rematched later in the same show.

Bob Bamber is joined by Dan Welling and Craig Wilson reviewing the WCW action for November 1997. A quiet month, underscored by an usually bad WCW pay-per-view and the bizarre way Eric Bischoff decided to announce Bret Hart's soon-to-be-arrival in Atlanta.
