December 28, 1982 WCCW
This week is the culmination of our month of WCCW. This week is the shot heard around the world when the freebirds turned on the Von Erichs and thus elevated them for years to come.  The cage match between Ric Fair and Kerry Von Erich for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship delivered on every level possible and more. We are thrilled to welcome Top Gal Amy back to the show to watch this match with us as well as adding some much needed opinions to our Rivalry rankings as well.  Ringside Rant Website castpie.com/ringsiderant Dave Miller Social Media Twitter/IG @refsuperdavepwd Justin Davis Social Media @jd2040

Submitting the Samoan Machine
Samoa Joe has been the man in every promotion he has been in since he debuted in professional wrestling.  From ROH to TNA to WWE, and now in AEW Samoa Joe has done it all in the business.  As a multiple time champion Joe has taken his skills all over the country and the world.  For almost a decade Joe ran all over the TNA roster before making his move to NXT/WWE.  Brian remembers some of the good times with Joe as well as some great stories from the Samoan Submission Machine. Brian also remembers the match he worked with Joe when he took on Austin Aries at Slammiversary 10.  Samoa Joe vs Austin Aries https://youtu.be/ykbS035dVns Refin It Up Website castpie.com/refinitup Brian Hebner Social Media Twitter/IG @babyhebner Refin It Up Social Media Twitter/IG @refinitup Artwork done by JD Hoop @JDHoop702 Intro Music done by AJ McKay ajmckaycreative.com

December 27, 1982 WCCW
We are almost to the shot heard around the world in the match between Kerry Von Erich and Ric Flair but first Dave and RJ break down the episode before on December 27, 1982.  The show was main evented with a battle royal in which there would be $10,000 on a pole.  This unique match was preempted by the finals for the NWA World Six Man titles between Michael Hayes, Terry Gordy, and David Von Erich taking on the Sharpe Brothers and Tom Steele.  Lastly, Dave and RJ add two more rivalries to their rankings as Justin is off on assignment this week.    Ringside Rant Website  castpie.com/ringsiderant   Dave Miller Social Media   Twitter/IG @refsuperdavepwd  Justin Davis Social Media   @jd2040

Faces of the Beast
Brock Lesnar has been creating carnage where ever he has been since 2002. From OVW to WWE to NJPW and finally to UFC he has been the main event wherever he has been.  Brock Lesnar had one of the best rookie years ever winning the King of the Ring Tournament, feuding with Hulk Hogan, and then becoming the then youngest world champion when he defeated The Rock at Summer Slam.  Lesnar can not only brawl with the best of them he is one of the best conditioned athletes in WWE history.  That conditioning was put to the test when he faced Kurt Angle in a 60 minute Iron Man match on Smackdown in 2003.  Brian breaks down what went into this match that he was honored to be the ref for as well as his thoughts on the career of Brock Lesnar.   Refin It Up Website  castpie.com/refinitup  Brian Hebner Social Media  Twitter/IG @babyhebner Refin It Up Social Media  Twitter/IG @refinitup Artwork done by JD Hoop @JDHoop702 Intro Music done by AJ McKay  ajmckaycreative.com

True Words Of Aries
As one of the most underrated wrestlers of all time Austin Aries has been in TNA/IMPACT, ROH, WWE, and now Control Your Narrative.  Aries is one of those wrestlers that can have a match with literally anyone.  From a cruiserweight match to a heavyweight match or even a tag team match Aries prided himself when he started training and then when he debute as someone that can do anything you ask of them.  We talk about his historical runs in TNA as X Division and Heavyweight Champions, as well as what really went happened when he worked for WWE and ultimately being released by the company.  But fear not Aries is a much better person then he was back then and continues to make the world a better place to live in.   Refin It Up Website  castpie.com/refinitup Refin It Up Social Media   Twitter and IG @refinitup Brain Hebner Social Media  Twitter and IG @babyhebner  Austin Aries Social Media  Twitter @AustinAries  IG @austinhealyaries JD Hoop Social Media  Twitter and IG @JDHoop702 AJ McKay Website  ajmckaycreative.com

August 12, 1996 RAW
We are at the go home show for Summer Slam 1996.  This episode of RAW was not the best but RJ and Justin made the best of it.  The show was main evented by Shawn Michaels vs Owen Hart in a non title match; so you know it'll be good.  With Vader and Shawn scheduled for Summer Slam the coming Sunday the usual shenanigans were in full force as well; as Vader made his presence felt.  Lastly, the company is very high on Faarooq at this time as they were planning on having him feud against Ahmed Johnson, but after Johnson got hurt and needed emergency surgery those plans were put on hold.   Ringside Rant Website castpie.com/ringsiderant

"It's Game Time"
Are You Ready? For the thousands listening around the world, it's time for another episode of Refin It Up with Brian Hebner.  This week Brian and RJ are honored to have former WWE referee Jimmy Korderas on the show to talk about someone that both he and Brian know well; Triple H.  As a life long fan of the business it was no surprise to anyone how quick Triple H took to the business when he trained with Killer Kowalski.  Making his debut in WCW in 1994 he fell in love with the business; he then was thrusted into the spotlight when he went to WWE and became Hunter Hearst Helmsley.  Triple H was one of the few men that could reinvent himself and get over even more than before.  All this and more on this great episode.   Refin It Up Website  castpie.com/refinitup Brian Hebner Social Media  Twitter and Instagram @babyhebner  AJ McKay Website ajmckaycreative.com JD Hoop Social Media  Twitter and Instagram @JDHoop702 Jimmy Korderas Social Media  Twitter @jimmykorderas

August 5, 1996 RAW
Justin and RJ are starting their march to Summer Slam this week as they Rant about the August 5, 1996 edition of RAW.  Main evented by a 11 man battle royal makes this RAW just like any other show in 1996; very interesting.  This RAW shows us why WCW beat the WWF in the ratings for as long as they did.  A lot of these matches just didn't make sense, while they tried to show a little attitude to their audience.  Justin and RJ also bring to you their first edition of their Best Wresting Rivalry's of all time.   Ringside Rant Website  castpie.com/ringsiderant

"The Innovator of Wrestling"
Tommy Dreamer doesn't do podcasts much but he made an exception this week for Brian and RJ as they welcome him to the show to chat about his long and historical career. Brian shares with all of us how much Tommy means to him in and outside the ring.  The passion that Tommy has for pro wrestling is quite evident during this episode as he has dedicated his life to the sport that he loves.  From his early days on the independent scene to ECW and WWE and finally currently with IMPACT Wrestling, there is not much that Tommy hasn't done as he continues to inspire and coach young wrestlers all over the world; as his is truly the Heart and Soul of Professional Wrestling.   Refin It Up Website  castpie.com/refinitup Brian Hebner Social Media  Twitter and IG @babyhebner  JD Hoop Social Media  Twitter and IG @JDHoop702 AJ McKay Website  ajmckaycreative.com

The Briscoe Brothers have been in the news as of late for their great match against FTR in Ring of Honor.  Mark and Jay Briscoe have been one of the best tag teams in professional wrestling since their debut in 2001.  Even with their individual singles runs they have always came back together to put on some of he best tag team matches ever.

Bash at the Beach 1999
The writing seems to be on the wall for WCW this week as Justin and RJ rant about Bash at the Beach 1999.  On paper the card would appear to be legitimately a good event but as someone once said "the bell had to ring." The highlight of this pay per view would be the match for the WCW Tag Team Championships, pitting "The New Jersey Triad" against Dean Malenko and Chris Benoit.  The rest of the event was very forgettible as RJ and Justin go off on the booking of the rest of the event.  All this and we also add four more themes to our Wresting with Music rankings with a surprise fifth.

The feud between the McMahons and Triple H and Shawn Michaels was in full swing here as Triple H was in the corner of Kenny.  However this wasn't the only time we would see Triple H on this show as he teamed with Shelton Benjamin and Chris Masters taking on the WWE Champion John Cena and the Intercontinental Champion Rob Van Dam in a Texas Tornado Handicap Match for the titles.  As you can imagine this show as a bit of a cluster; find out what Justin and RJ have to Rant about on this show.
