 It is a lot of time and effort for something that is almost surely being done because those involved love wrestling. No one’s getting rich. No one’s getting famous…WEI Rating: + 1

The original “Mayhem Show” started several years ago as a streaming online radio show. It mainly consisted of DJ Sorg bullshitting about RAW that night, reading news, and playing underground music. This show bounced around radio servers (Toxic, PAJ, etc) and found a home on WPAJRadio.com(using Shoutcast server, winamp, and a home computer, capable of a grand total of 15 listeners).

Wrestling Mayhem Show was started, as a podcast, on January 10, 2006, when DJ Sorg asked new friend, Lunchbox, to come over and talk wrestling on his radio. Week after week, more people joined the conversation, growing the show. The months have gone by. The crew has grown. As have the numbers of listeners. From England to Cairo, Egypt. They’re out there.

In November 2006, Wrestling Mayhem Show participated in Podcamp Pittsburgh. We presented a panel discussion about our experience building the WMS community, and shot the Podcamp Mayhem Show, showcasing the people and experience of Podcamp. We received a reward, officially, for our audio recap of the show when we took over the Missfit Advice Hour for a night to discuss the weekend.

Wrestling Mayhem Show Live!2007 was started with bigger in interviews, in names such as Larry Sweeney, Eric Young, and Brent Albright. We were greeted by two visits by fans, one from New York City, and the other from London, England. We also presented, to much praise, at both Bootcamp Pittsburgh and Podcamp Pittsburgh 2 (this time, with our fellow podcasters from ShouldIDrinkThat.com.)

2008 brought visits by fan-becoming-member Mad Mike from the Bronx.  More frequent appearances from chat room favorite V.Ron, and Mayhem Missy joining the crew on the couch.  And more and more, BlogTV became the home for the live video feed during the show every Tuesday.  Interviews include more in studio guests, including Jimmy Demarco, Viki Gambino, Sexual Harassment, Super Hentai, Shiima Xion, and Michael Facade.  Big phone interviews include Shawn Daivari, and Toa and Zen of NBC’s American Gladiators.

The years have been kind.  Growing our numbers, participants, and upgrading with the times.  We’ve spoken to everyone from Jimmy Snuka to Kurt Angle and had a blast along the way and not stopping any day soon…
