When the Alliance of American Football debuted its first set of games in February 2019, there was no traditional fantasy football platform available. No Extra Points chronicles the story of the AAF but more specifically the cultivation of AAF Fantasy Football content by a couple of web developers who, like the players and coaches on the field, wanted to be a part of something bigger.

Ric Flair returns to WCW, Maxx Payne plays Taps on an electric guitar, and Sting and Vader collide in the White Castle of Fear strap match at Superbrawl III.

We're back in Season Five! It's finally time to get Starrcade '92 in the books. It's Battle Bowl. It's the King of Cable. It's the NWA World Title. You name it, it's happening on this show.

There may not be a wrestler in WWF, WWE, WCW, NWA, or any wrestling promotion with a vault of classics like Bret Hart. Making a top ten list of his best wrestling matches is a fun draft, full of a requisite list of must-haves. Here's one that may sneak into yours. On July 11, 1994, Bret Hart defended the WWF Championship against 1-2-3 Kid in a TV m…
 
We're closing in on the end of 1992, on the cusp of the Starrcade. That must mean it's time for a Clash of the Champions, and here we are at Clash XXI, which is the video production bonanza of the year. There are so many tournaments going on, it's kind of ridiculous, but we've got plenty of action on this card. Paul E. versus Madusa in the "has not…
 
It's become a tradition that we break out a MFGWLM episode for holiday season, and this year it's from WWE Studios, starring The Miz and Paige. It's Santa's Little Helper.

WWE has finally brought Halloween Havoc out of its WCW's mothballs, and it worked out perfectly because here we are in Season Five with Halloween Havoc '92. "Spin the wheel, make the deal." Wow, what a pay-per-view marketing campaign? How did it pay off? Was it a good pay off? We will discuss as Sting takes on Jake Roberts in the main event. Twitte…
 
Season Five continues with a trip to Atlanta as WCW celebrates 20 years of wrestling on TBS. It's Clash of the Champions XX, where its a celebration with the occasional wrestling match in-between the early 90's motion graphics to span the years of wrestling on the Superstation. Ron Simmons defends the WCW World Title against Cactus Jack and in a ve…

In this episode of the The Perfect 10's, William is joined by Tom Franken from the Stranger Rings podcast, who chose Mike Awesome vs. Masato Tanaka from ECW's One Night Stand '05. Awesome and Tanaka have an incredible feud that spans many wrestling promotions, most famously ECW from 1998-1999. One Night Stand was part of WWE's reboot of ECW, and th…
 
By the time the year 2000 rolled around, WWE was missing its top draw with Stone Cold Steve Austin due to injury. A new top heel was needed, and thus Triple H was put on the on-ramp to wrestling superstardom while also becoming the definitive incarnation of his character as The Game. But he needed a match that would make people believe he was more …
 
This week, William is joined by Drew Wardlaw (@_burningspirits) from the You Don't Know Billy Jack podcast featured on the Place to Be Wrestling Network. Drew has picked Lex Luger vs. Ric Flair from WrestleWar '90 for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. Luger has a complicated history and reception in wrestling, but this is a defining match for…
 
WWE always wants WrestleMania to be memorable, and in 2020 they certainly got that with WrestleMania 36. Was The Undertaker versus AJ Styles going to be a memorable match if it was a one-on-one match in a ring in front of thousands of fans? We'll never know. What we do know is that because of COVID-19, WrestleMania changed and so did the matchup be…
 
If you're going to be doing a wrestling podcast about a Perfect 10 from Triple H, there is no one better than Scott Criscuolo from the Place to Be Podcast. We're talking through his Perfect 10, Triple H taking on Stone Cold Steve Austin from No Way Out '01. Huge WWF pay-per-view on the road to WrestleMania X7 and certainly a huge match for both Tri…
 
One of the hottest angles of 1991, The Mountie and The Big Boss Man were on a collision course in the WWF, and it finally culminated in a fitting gimmick match: a Jailhouse match where the loser would have to spend the night in a New York City jail. Dan Rackley joins William to talk through why he thinks this is a perfect 10. Twitter: @newbloodpod …
 
Jason is bringing his Perfect 10 to the pod this week and talks through Kurt Angle and Shawn Michaels from WWE WrestleMania 21.

With his title win at WrestleMania XIV, Stone Cold Steve Austin ushered in the Attitude Era as the new WWF Champion.

William goes through and talks through the buildup to this second match in the series with Dud…
 
William and Charlie are back with a Perfect 10 that encompasses the Royal Rumble match from the 2001 Royal Rumble pay-per-view. The '01 Rumble is mentioned in the same conversation with the legendary 1992 Royal Rumble. The guys talk through some of the comparisons and what ultimately made the '01 Rumble match special and one that really hasn't been…
 
Triple Threat matches can be an interesting but mostly disappointing lot for WWE and wrestling fans. In 2015, one match defied the cliches and expectations, and that was John Cena vs. Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Royal Rumble 2015. Its a match with great storytelling and fantastic pace. William Renken …

What still makes this match so special to this day? Follow us on Twitter (@newbloodpod) and let us know your th…
 
In 2002, one year removed from the zenith of the Attitude Era, the WWF had to try and catch that same lightning in a bottle again with WrestleMania X8 in Toronto, Canada. They fell way short. But where they fell short as a show overall, they exceeded with a match that is unforgettable and a testament to what live performance, specifically in profes…

It's been awhile since we had an episode, so in the buildup to Great American Bash '92, we wanted to release a Perfect 10 episode. This time around William looks back at the Career Ending Match between Macho Kind Randy Savage and Ultimate Warrior from WrestleMania VII. It's a match that represents apex storytelling in professional wrestling, and Wi…
 
We wanted to bring you all one last episode before the close of 2019, and at the suggestion of Charlie and Jason, it's a look at Goldberg's turn in Santa's Slay. Really, it was just an excuse for all three of us to get together and talk for a bit. Thank you all for listening in 2019. We didn't have the output we necessarily wanted, but we will be b…
 
William and Charlie return with Clash of the Champions XIX, which took place in our backyard of Charleston, SC. It's a wrestling show that happens to have a tournament which is always fun, especially with expendable international teams. What a wild show that definitely takes it to the limit one more time. Follow us on Twitter (@newbloodpod) and Fac…
 
After an extended break, William and Charlie return to cover Beach Blast '92. A Falls Count Anywhere (Along the Coast) match, and Iron Man Match, and a Bikini/First Lady of WCW contest. It's an interesting show to say the least. Follow us on Twitter (@newbloodpod) and on Facebook (New Blood Rising Podcast)! --- Send in a voice message: https://anch…
 
Stone Cold Steve Austin's promo from Raw Reunion was very memorable and unexpectedly poignant in many ways. There's an argument that this might be one of his best promos of all time. This rendition has a bit of a cinematic touch, and if you've seen Any Given Sunday, you'll know what I mean.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/newbloodpod/…

Stick around for the laughs in this one…
 
In March 2018, Charlie Ebersol announced to the world that he had been building a football league in secret. He called it the Alliance of American Football and looked to set forth where previous spring football leagues had failed. In fact the league would not make it past week eight in its inaugural season before it was shut down. However, buried u…

In the next installment in the Perfect 10's series, William takes us back to SummerSlam 2014 for the main event that pitted Brock Lesnar against the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, John Cena.

Welcome to a special series within Season 5 entitled The Perfect 10's. You've heard us rate matches from one to ten. Now the three of us are going to take some solo pods to talk about the ones we think are perfect. I couldn't think of a better one to start with than Bret Hart versus Mr. Perfect from SummerSlam '91. This was a match that changed the…

Its Clash time once again and XVII offers quite the card. Rick Steiner challenges Lex Luger for the WCW World Title, Rick Rude challenges Sting (well, maybe) for the US Title and Dustin Rhodes/Barry Windham (well, maybe) challenge The Enforcers for the World Tag Titles among others. Plus we make a couple announcements; one being an announcement abo…
 
Halloween Havoc ’91 provides quite a bit of discussion including possible racial bias from referees and whether fans in regions other than the one of their favorite sports team are real fans. Its a dandy. Oh, and the All-American Ron Simmons challenges Lex Luger for the WCW World Title in a Best Two out of Three Falls Match. Follow us on Twitter, @…
