XOC Podcast #12
"Runaway Insult Train"


On this episode of The Extreme Odd Couple, both Steve Corino and Rob Dimension are on edge. Insults are thrown right from the start.


Topics today discussed - Dimension tell's his Will Smith Screw Job story, can anyone trust this guy again?  Plus, Steve Corino starts off the "What If" segment with What If Magnum TA never had his accident...wait until you see where this one goes. Also, Corino makes it a point to bash Dimension's taste in almost everything. Dimension talks Stoogeum, Joe PA is brought up...plus...what do unclog a drain with? Our own, DIY Dimension shares his knowledge...or lack off.




The guys also play the game - "Who would you bang?" This time, through the eyes of Jack Tripper from Three's Company. Who's safe? Who's the clinger? We're sure you've thought of it before.

Jeff Jarrett
"Stinger, you are correct. Tonight marks a new era. But it also ends an era. The era of Sting. Next to me (pointing to Jindrak) is the future of professional wrestling. Six foot six, 260 pounds. This is the new face of WCW and his name is Mark Jindrak. Sting, you were the face of this company in the 1990's and it is time to pass the torch. Do you have what it takes to face the future?"

Sting
"Jarrett, for years I have heard you run your mouth, but I can't think of a better way of shutting you up then stopping the hype of your 'future'. So lets not wait for a Pay Per View. Lets do it tonight, LIVE, right here on Thunder!"

Sting's music

XOC Podcast #10 - It's Armageddon!!

XOC Podcast #10
The Extreme Odd Couple
"It's Armageddon!!"


Another year in the books, but that doesn't mean that Steve Corino and Rob Dimension will agree about the Apocolypse..or if it's gonna even happen. From New Years happenings, to more Chairshots to the Head, to the sad story on how these two nerds celebrate bringing in 2012.


Steve Corino serves us his 1st Fantasy TV taping of Thunder for the "Re-booking WCW in 2001" segment. Who debuts? Who makes a return? You've been asking...so here it is. Plus, Corino adds even more insight to the Chairshots vs Drug Use in Professional Wrestling. This is a deep conversation and is worth a listen. Do you know someone who abuses drugs or suffers from depression? Take a stand, listen and help.



Rob Dimension talks gaming (of course) plus what happened when he approached the PBA (Professional Bowlers Association) and he gives Corino the answer to the Bowling Challenge!! 12 years in the making, will the "War to Settle The Score II" happen? Are you #TeamCorino or #TeamDimension?
