#024-2023 Women's Royal Rumble
Today at 4:31 AM

Hey, apparently I can talk for 2+ hours nonstop about wrestling. It is the LIVE PBP of the 30-women Royal Rumble Match! Rhea Ripley goes coast to coast as #1 and wins the Rumble, find out what else happened as Dakota Kai hits the ring and runs wild on everyone and Asuka hits the ring and runs wild on everyone and Tamina, who has been on the main roster 13 years, hits the ring and runs wild on everyone and Chelsea Green...not so much.


Episode #023-2023 Men's Royal Rumble
Today at 2:35 AM

Here it is, the LIVE play by play commentary of the 2023 Men's Royal Rumble Match! Everything and everyone from Gunther to Cody Rhodes and everything in between. Plus my reactions to Pat McAfee, Logan Paul, Johnny Gargano, Brock Lesnar, Bobby Lashley and any other surprise we saw during the match! On top of that I will be back later tonight with the Women's Royal Rumble!


Episode #022-Cease and Desist
Last Wednesday at 1:19 AM

Something Else returns as Arya shares her thoughts on Jay Briscoe's passing, JK Rowling's transphobia, fire-breathing dragons and Mid South from February 1982. Bill Watts is back at the desk and he's here to talk about everything other than what's in the ring. He plugs the next Superdome show and wonders about Ernie Ladd and the One Man Gang and...OH SHOOT! IT'S THE RETURN OF CATSABOULIS! What happens and what does Cease and Desist have to do with this episode? Find out inside!


Episode #021-The iPhone 13 of Wrestling Podcasts
01/17/2023

We're back and we have our fingers crossed that WWE isn't allegedly sold to Saudi Arabia in the next hour! We return to Shreveport, Louisiana with Mid-South Wrestling from February 11, 1982 with Junkyard Dog, Bob Roop, Paul Orndorff and our old friend Ed Wiskowski. Then we go to TNA with James Storm and Rhino on a SCAFFOLD before we finish things up with a cow visiting Olive Garden!


Episode #020-The Hostile Re-Takeover of Vince McMahon
01/11/2023

A special Tuesday edition covering the breaking news of Stephanie McMahon resigning as co-CEO and Executive Chairwoman of WWE. I recap the entire week going back to the Wall Street Journal's original article on Thursday, all the way through the shenanigans of Friday and Steph's resignation. What does this mean for WWE and the rest of the Board? I try to go over that and so much more. Plus it was a huge day for me and my gender transition as I break some really big news on the show. All that plus Weird News Of The Week!


Episode #019-Breakfast With Ospreay
01/04/2023

I am back for an (almost) immediate recap of WrestleKingdom 17, the 32nd annual January 4th Tokyo Dome show for New Japan Pro Wrestling. A 6 hour show with 3 amazing 4+ star matches and a Match Of The Year contender. Unfortunately to get to those 3 matches, you had to watch the first 4 hours of the show. A total waste of top stars, a cluster of a Ranbo and a series of matches that can be described as "Not as good as they could be". Find out all my thoughts inside!


Episode #018-My December DIsmembered
12/27/2022

Something Else with Arya and Not KJ is back with Episode #18 where, for some ungodly reason, I review ECW December to Dismember, the show that killed ECW and was the end of Paul Heyman in WWE until 2012. Matt Striker has his face on his tights. Why? Great Khali is the World's Largest Manager. Why? CM Punk, the crowd favorite, is eliminated first. Why? All that PLUS the debut of a new segment called This Match Really Happened featuring New Japan star Will Ospreay in TNA and the return of Weird News of the Week!


Episode #017: Witner Is Here
12/17/2022

I'm baaaaaaaaack with a brand new episode of Something Else. Today I fight a cold and talk about where I've been, where KJ is, what Vince McMahon is doing, AEW Dynamite: Winter Is Coming and this week's episode of Impact!
