Stunt Granny Audio #192

This an excruciatingly special edition of Stunt Granny Audio because it features the reuniting of Jeremy, Eric and Dusty for the first time in a long, long time. And not only that, but it also features the debut of several different new features of Stunt Granny Audio, including the Top Five At Five, Match Game and the Mount Rushmore game. Can you barely contain your excitement!? They talk about the nine hour long AJ-Daniel Bryan-CM Punk segment that opened Raw, they talk about the heart warming ascent of Austin Aries, they talk about Iowa’s own Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame and who will all be there, and they talk about a whole lot more things that you can only know about if you listen to the audio. So why don’t you do that? NOW.

More details on pro wrestling hall of fame inductions (Funk, Foley)

"We're so crazy, we didn't even *wanna* be interviewed by Eric Nelson!"

( first reported this on Feb. 25, but here are more details about this year’s George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame inductions, to take place July 10 at the Dan Gable International Wrestling Institute and Museum in Waterloo, Iowa. Please read the whole thing, as there’s a lot of valuable information here. P.S. I’m glad to hear a DVD of a roundtable discussion held that weekend will be pressed as a fundraiser for the museum, but I’ll be god damned if that wasn’t my idea, mentioned multiple times on the Stunt Granny Audio and e-mailed to assistant museum executive Kent Sesker right around Jan. 1 of this year. Oh well, at least it’s being done, even if I can’t take part. The museum needs the help.)
