Ahhh....Wrestlemania season is upon us and Mark likes to bring in some Wrestling talk every blue moon to the show. This episode brings in Gary Weed to sit down and discuss the 32 man tournament that is the Best WWE Wrestler of All Time.
Now there are gonna be some upsets as we all know will happen in these March Madness styled tournaments, but Mark and Gary feel they have a definitive breakdown on who makes the list (at this point in history) and who moves on to the finals. So was it Austin? Was it Hogan? Maybe Rock or Bret Hart....?
Find out on this exciting episode and see if you agree or it makes you tear your hair out just thinking about it.
First we had Evan Gelistico and now his Tag Partner Pierre Abernathy decides to sit down with Mark Bland and discuss the world around us.
Pierre breaks down how he got into wrestling and the people that he met along the way. Which eventually leads to his owning and running Anarchy Wrestling. It definitely was not a easy transition for the wrestler whose been performing for 10+ years, but a necessary move that tested him in ways he didn't realize it would.
Then Mark starts to discuss politics and the unbelievable staying power of Donald Trump. Pierre jumps in and discusses his beliefs on the Donald and whether he thinks there is value to him as a President or not. This Leads Mark to beg people across the great nation to not support or vote for Donald Trump.
Next up Mark and Pierre tackle the controversy that is Hulk Hogans junk. Well techinically it's not Terry's junk, cause he said that on the stand. Hulk Hogan is embroiled in a sex tape trial and recently brought up his theory on his penis and who it belongs to or not. Mark and Pierre ruin their childhoods through discussing this weird stance Mr. Bollea takes.
Finally Mark and Pierre discuss a little NBA basketball and Pierre makes a absolutely cruical mistake by choosing Michael Jordan as a better all around player than Lebron James. This leads to a discussion of how he can assume this. Also Pierre jumps on the HOT SEAT for a few questions and Evan Gelistico joins in Overtime while discussing Pierres unique Ghostbuster and TMNT movie/character theories.
Do you know Evan Gelistico? Well get to know him on this episode of the Q. Evan is a pro-wrestler and pop culture afficianado that decided to jump on the show to talk with Mark.
First up, Evan discusses his early days learning to be a pro-wrestler and wrestling in trailer parks and inclimate weather to perfect his abilities. Evan jumps through tons of stories about his early days and some of his influences in the business. Next Mark opens up a can of worms and starts to get into talking about Deadpool and other comic book movies that he's seen. This leads to further discussion about comic superheroes and who Mark "thinks" is the toughest and best....of course Evan is there to correct him!
Next up the pair talk about the New Hampshire Primaries and how well Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump did in their stumping. Evan talks about some of his political beliefs and other assorted feelings with regards to that realm of life.
Finally there is overtime and things get deep, personal and the two touch on the MEDIOCRE seat (instead of Hot Seat!)....all this and much more on this episode of the Q.

Well the lunatics have taken over the asylum again and this time around Sam Richardson a noted Pro-Wrestler and Trainer from the St. Louis area joins in to discuss all the fun.
Sam and Mark go back a few years and Sam explains his love of comics and all things geeky, as well as his involvement in prowrestling and beginnings to his career. Sam is also a comic book author and he discusses his background in selling and distributing a comic book in 2016.
But things then switch to the STANDOFF....Oh yes.... Ladies and gentlemen we have a group of Trump loving hypocrites that will claim Darren Wilson was sent through the judicial system and what they decided was exactly as it should be. BUT, BUT, BUT..... The Bundy family is up in Oregon and they have taken Wildlife Refuge hostage from the federal government with 150 "armed" men. They did this because they are declaring war on the US government and their friends, who commited arson and were JUDGED in a court of law, are now in jail....and they don't like it! So their answer was to do this. Mark and Sam are going to explain where the situation stands, whether they have merit to their argument, or if they are just setting up a new Waco/Ruby Ridge situation that will end the same way.
All this and Mark breaks down a special Hotseat with Sam where he goes above and beyond for an extra 6th question that has never been done before. Witness this epic first epsiode of 2016...
PS....they talk about Force Awakens too and may hint on spoilers, so be prepared.

On this episode of the Q, we walk back into the pro-wrestling world for a episode and it doesn't disappoint. First up, Lucy Mendez the Queen of Sass, comes back on to join in for the pro-wrestling talk. But not to be outdone, fresh off his ROH Debut, midwest Pro-Wrestler Dirty Jake Dirden joins us live in studio to discuss: being a Dynamo Pro Champion, What wrestling in ROH was like and his life before Wrestling.
Then we kick the show into high gear discussing wrestling with our guest, former WWE 3 Time Tag Team Champion, Trevor Murdoch. Murdoch joins in to talk about his release from WWE, the early days in the STL wrestling indie scene and eventually gets to a story from overseas of how he saved Randy Orton from a issue and got arrested for it. Find out what happened!
Finally Vaughn Johnson of Philly.com wrestling taps into us to discuss his recent attendance of WWE 2015 Royal Rumble in Philadelphia. Producer Bobby, Lucy, Mark and Jake break down their opinion of the best PPV of the year for the company (next to Wrestlemania) and where the eventual road leads to Wrestlemania 31 in just a few months. Everyone has an opinion and it shows as Lucy gets called out by caller for her statements and Dirden sits on the Hot Seat to give you a peak behind the proverbial curtai
Well Producer Bobby definitely let the cat out of the bag on this episode of The Q. When he gets a phone call about a champion wanting to come on the show, he jumps at the chance to surprise Mark and the team. But when the veil is lifted on the guest, it is none other than Dynamo Pro Champion Ricky Cruz! The bane of Mark's existence in the world of pro-wrestling.
Bland and Cruz immediately get off on a shaky start when their vitriol for each other is evident in their conversation. But Bland tries to push forward regardless of their dislike and discuss the upbringing and world of professional wrestling in Puerto Rico where Cruz hails from.
Then its time for business. Mark discusses the background of Cabela's and Bass Pro Shops and how he feels they are just fronts for a lifestyle as opposed to the go to spot for a specific need that you can't facilitate anywhere else. This leads to a discussion about hoosiers and their needs. Next up the peeps jump into discussing the recent city hall meeting that Ferguson held where people where up in arms about the situation regarding Mike Brown and the riots. You gotta hear where this goes.
Finally Mark, Dan, Ricky, Bobby and Lucy jump in head first into the Ray Rice domestic violence issue and how the NFL did or didn't do a good job handling the punishment of their athlete. But did Rice deserve the punishment in the first place? Was the NFL out of line for indefinitely suspending the Raven until further notice? And what about the fines/punishments levied against other NFL players in the past few years for potentially bigger or smaller (depending on your view) infractions.
All this and much, much more are waiting in this episode of THE Q!

KOZ IS BACK! And he has a little on his plate to talk about regarding a upcoming match with a new Tag Team Champion from a little organization called WWE.
Then its rant time. Coming off his rant from the other video series he does with DJ C-Note in the STL area for HOT 104, Mark has a serious issue with Black culture and their gullibility on certain things, especially the BET awards shows that are put out 3-4 times a year. And an issue he has with Panera Bread/St. Louis Bread Company for gouging people on their food prices.
The Daily show released a comedic video regarding Tea Party/Extreme GOP members and how they are destroying the new re-opened federal government over the budget demands that shut it down. Very interesting and funny look at truly out there some people on the right of the aisle happen to be.
Plus BNN with Producer Bobby discussing good ole castration and letter from the listener or two. Another action packed episode for your approval!
