Botchamania 339

Botchamania 339

Featuring black guys, Charlotte the Harlot, Simpsons references, Starfox 64, Shovel Knight, Price is Right and a bit of wrestling (but only if there’s time).

Bit of a lean one for OH MAN CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THAT IN BOTCHAMANIA moments but I watched WOW Unleashed so there’s that.

Scott Keith and Down Under Aussie (in Aus) suggested I post links to the new Botchamania videos on here so here we go. I didn’t think to do it but there’s so many plugs and other things on here disguised as ”press releases” I don’t feel weird about it.

Featuring Wrestlemania, NXT Takeover, TNA Xplosion, wrong names, bad tables, Simpsons references, video game music and everything else that makes wrestling great.

Note: I had to remove a few clips from the YouTube version (and stick it in a window) to keep it online, so I recommend watching either Dailymotion or Vimeo versions.

The good news is this card is set up on paper to pull it off, with at least four killer matches on the table, and the potential for a few others to surprise. So let’s go through this after the jump…

Lucha Underground: The Business Model

The goal of most companies in the wrestling industry is to produce a product good enough to get TV rights fees, use the TV rights fees to offset the cost of production, and make money on house shows, PPVs, and merchandise.
