Well it has been a decent year and after writing the REVIEW (available on the Breaking Point blog), I have decided to bullet the TOP 5 moments for the show in 2013! So here they are:
5. The Q interviews JENSEN KARP. Jensen is the host of "Get up on this this" a podcast on the Smodcast network with Kevin Smith. Each week he and his co-host (Matt Robinson) bring you cool new things you need to know about. A great interview and one of the best moments in show history.
4. Interview with DC Chymes. Dc Chymes is one half of the most respected and well known morning show radio teams in the history of Midwest radio broadcasting. For almost 20 years him and his partner Steve Shannon ran their morning show from St. Louis, MO with 65 market impact on syndication. The history of the show had its ups and downs and DC didn't hold back discussing his past beefs with JC Corcoran and many other stories from their history.
3. Episode 150! Its been awhile since the show started in 2010. There has been a re-election and the world has changed for the better and worse since its inception. Pro Wrestlers BOLT BRADY and JORDYNNE GRACE joined the broadcast to talk wrestling and politics while celebrating the 150th milestone.
2. Mark and Bobby go to Duquoin to win the PATRIOT CUP skate race against 1420 WINI radio station GENERAL MANAGER Mike Barsel. After a valiant effort, Mark walked away with the victory and then had the Patriot Cup kept from him cause of his moderate/liberal attitude and beliefs. That's how they do it in the middle of nowhere I guess! (watch the video on the Breaking Point section of the site)
1. Travis Cook flips out in the infamous Bailey/Cook debates and says that the president needs to be hung from the "highest tree that can be found" for treason. By far the most outlandish and memorable moment of 2013.
We want to thank every single guest from this past year and look forward to another amazing year entertaining all of you! Happy New Year and god Bless you.
Jovan Bibbs continues to entertain us in OVERTIME 136. The guys discuss the size of black genitalia after Bobby brings up research that suggest that men with smaller balls make for better parents.
Also Jovan and Bobby come up with a great idea for a new strip club they wanna open called "Tit's & More"...and then we kick in to OVERDRIVE when we start to discuss a couple advice stories to show regarding a girl that just can't get her man to satisfy her and a story of a guy who lets his friend ruin something of his and figuring out whose to blame.

Well its OVERTIME and Mark and Bobby are looking to answer a few more questions, but not before discussing the current WWE storylines and why some of the characters are involved where they are.
Mark brings a little insight from his past pro-wrestling career to discuss the locker room aspect of a show and why some guys make it to getting pushed and why some don't.
Plus the two discuss some questions from the listeners and we find out something from Bobby that is a complete Mind-F--K that Mark still hasn't gotten over. Its THE Q!

On this OVERTIME 134, its TRIVIA TIME. Mark takes Tony, Justin and Big Bobby and puts them in a battle of the wits, to see which one cuts the mustard. Including one EPIC flub by one of the contestants.
Also they continue the talk from the main show discussing more about Batman and comic books, trying to figure out which director not currently attached to a project would be the most interesting to see what they would do directing the Batman franchise. Interesting answers come out flying on that.

On this OVERTIME, Mark and Ron decide to discuss the virtues of being a hall of famer and whether Performance Enhancing Drugs are the be all and end of the game...as well as other sports.
Also, Mark decides to put Ron on the hot seat and have him answer some of the listener questions by himself. See how he fared on this episode of THE OVERTIME!

Plus Nappier brings the show to an end the only way he could possibly know how!

Its time to go uncensored with the guys. Matt, Andy and Mark discuss some more questions from the listeners. First the guys tackle some of their favorite horror movies and discuss the new movie "The Conjuring" has just been released. Mark talk about musician/movie director Rob Zombie and his "penchant" for making great horror flicks off the cuff.
Then they tackle a letter from a girl that involves her open relationship and all the craziness that goes along with it. Plus there are some attachment issues with one young soul and the guys bust through how to handle those relationships. Andy then goes on a tear explaining what a guy needs to do to make a lady happy FOREVER.
A must listen episode...

Its OVERTIME and Travis Cook, Mark and Jeremy Bailey stick around to discuss some other questions from the listeners...BUT...not before Mark takes control and firmly finds a way to establish the sexiness that is Travis Cook for a lucky Lady out there. Mark and Jeremy breakdown what kind of girl Travis wants, as well as gets the goods on the kind of guy Travis is so they can sell him effectively!
By far one of the more entertaining Overtimes the show has seen. Sit back and enjoy the discussion!

It's the age old Pro-Wrestling discussion that never gets old (but really it is WAY OLD).... What if Sting were in the WWE? Of course, that is always immediately followed with a bunch of drooling of who could fight who and where the story lines can go. Well let me give you a heads up on this latest round..... NOWHERE!
Recently it was put out there that Stinger had reached out through connections and discussed the potential for a final move to the WWE. When and if this happens, it is almost a guarantee that he will retire. Probably one more match at Wrestlemania against Undertaker or Triple H just so he can say he fought him when they both were at the top of their game. Then immediate retirement and gone. There won't be any story lines that are drawn out or a line of opponents for him to drive through before its over.....nope, just one match and gone.
So the question is....is this good for WWE and Sting? Probably and only for one reason. The merchandising deals that can be put into place. Sting is truly an ICON in the sport and his merchandising is worth millions to a company like WWE. Plus they have the vehicle that is powerful enough to still get long run play financially out of older retired characters and their likeness. Hell just the thought of a STING character in the next WWE 14 video game is enough to get a ton of people to jump on top of it.
So with this said, and the age that Steve is at, there is a probable move to the WWE to solidify that merchandising deal and his final bid to enter the HALL OF FAME. And we all know that there are other "hall of fames", but the one that really counts in the fans eyes is the WWE Hall of Fame. With out the big show and Wrestlemania weekend to be around it, a Hall of Fame bid seems mediocre..
So why title this "Stop it with Sting!" ? Well that is simple. We need to stop everything with Sting. He probably really only has one GREAT match left in the tank (everything else seems phoned in recently). We nee d that match on the "Biggest Stage of them ALL" and it needs to be against someone legendary (including Cena...regardless of your opinion). And they need to Retire him and put him in the Hall of Fame so he can stop all of it. No more bad angles. No more discussion of jumping ship. No more "one more time" chants. No more anything. It is time for Sting to move on.
Now I get that this might not be a popular opinion. And that is fine. I am one person with one viewpoint. But I think we all know that the guy that holds on too long tarnishes his reputation. We all love Ric Flair, but he's become the Dick Clark of Pro-Wrestling. Every year they would roll Clark out on New Years eve and it was fine until the stroke. Then it became a sad state of affairs and each time the fans would say "they rolled him out again and he looked worse". Well that is where Flair is and we don't want Taker and Sting to get to. Sometimes opting for the RYU-esque walk off into the sunset is a more fitting end for our heroes and favorites.
