Benoit: 10 Years Later

It's been 10 years since the horrific events of the last few days of...It's been 10 years since the horrific events of the last few days of Chris Benoit's life & the murder of his family & his own subsequent suicide, which Y2J has discussed in-depth on this very podcast. But today, Y2J is putting those last few days aside, and talking about Chris Benoit, the wrestler, with noted wrestling expert and journalist Dave Meltzer from the Wrestling Observer. Dave not only covered Benoit's career from his early days in Calgary and Japan, but was also friends with him. And for many years (the late 90s & early 2000s), Y2J's career was tightly intertwined with Benoit's. So Y2J & Meltzer breakdown and analyze some of Benoit's matches, and many of the matches Y2J worked with him. It's a controversial discussion that is not meant to glorify Benoit or erase the despicable acts that defined the last days of his life.   Show More

Do you want to know what Chris Jericho was like as a kid? Well, here's your chance! His two childhood BFFs (who also happen to be his cousins) Wise Cousin Chad and How's It Goin' Todd Holowatuk join TIJ to relive some of the fun! They used to spend the summers at each other's houses, take family vacations together (including wayward RV trips to the States), and attend more concerts than they can remember.

Ross Hart is the 10th out of 12 Hart kids, and sandwiched right in between Bret & Owen. He produced the Stampede Wrestling TV product in the 80s while his older brother, Bruce, was booker. But he was involved in the family-promotion long before becoming its TV producer! He used to drive the wrestlers around the territory to shows, and talks about the scary car accident in the Canadian Rockies that almost killed him, Davey Boy Smith, Chris Benoit, and Karl Moffat. He's also got stories about Dynamite Kid, Brian Pillman, Randy Orton's uncle, Barry Orton, and brother Owen's early days at Stampede. He talks about his dad, Stu, selling to Vince McMahon only to relaunch Stampede again himself when things didn't go according to plan, and Ross explains why Stu finally closed the promotion for good.

Third time's a charm for Corey Taylor as the Stone Sour/Slipknot frontman returns to TIJ to talk about the latest Stone Sour album, "Hydrograd," the fabulous "Fabuless" video of Tubemen, his upcoming fourth book "America 51," and a musical influence that might surprise everyone. He's also talking about Stone Sour's near Wrestlemania appearance, and his own involvement in a recent Baron Corbin vs Samoa Joe house show match!

Happy Canada Day to all of Y2J's fellow Canadians! And in honor of the occasion, the Canadian rock band crew (they're mostly from Winnipeg, you idiot) has reunited to talk all things Canadian television (and sing a TV theme song or ten)! Brent Fitz, Todd Kerns from Slash & Myles Kennedys band, the Conspirators, Red Solo Cup Geoff, and honorary Canadian, Brian Slagel from Metal Blade Records have plenty of memories (well, not Brian so much) about Degrassi, The Littlest Hobo, Bizarre, The Beachcombers, and City Vision (and how it wrecked Y2Js music credibility in highschool). And you know there's more than one great rock story included in this inquisition and it may or may not involve AC/DC, KISS and/or Judas Priest. O Canada! Our home and native land! O Canada! We stand on guard for thee (and your killer TV shows)!

The 2017 Money In The Bank champion, Baron Corbin, brings his bright blue briefcase, his plans for cashing it in, and his take on that game-changing ladder match to TIJ.

Hes talking about his transition from the NFL to the WWE, training with Johnny The Bull, his first match at NXT (against Alberto Del Rios younger brother), the motivating advice he got from both Michael PS Hayes and The Undertaker, and the great story about how Triple H told him he was finally moving up to the main roster!

Before there was Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor, there was Muhammad Ali vs Antonio Inoki! The forgotten fight happened June 26, 1976 at the Budakon Arena in Japan.

He's a legend, a pioneer, and held the World Championship for 12 years! Bruno Sammartinos on TIJ!

He explains how he discovered bodybuilding as a teen, when he first met Arnold Schwarzenegger, why he turned down the NFL & the Pittsburgh Steelers to wrestle for WWF and Vince McMahon, and how he became World Champ. You'll hear why he was blackballed from pro-wrestling, how he found his way back, what he thinks about his own WWE Hall of Fame induction, and how he ended up in a ring wrestling an orangutan!
