Don’t be silly, you know what it is! A roundtable review podcast set to video footage of the event!
No, we’re Irish, from Dublin. Someone put a bomb in me potato!
Mr. OOC, of course. His reputation as “the funny one” is justified.
We don’t hate Americans at all, we’re just taking the piss! Thankfully our fans get it. It comes about mostly to spite McMahon’s disgraceful patriotism-for-profit (Support America! Buy my PPV!). Some Americans get unnaturally upset over it, it’s hilarious.
We never reviewed them! We finished the Hulkamania Era at SummerSlam 92 (here’s why). We let our fans choose the next review as a bonus episode and WrestleMania IX won by a landslide! (You can see the voting here, posters here). For ourselves, we were getting bored and were more than ready to move on from early 90s WWF, doing starkly contrasting WCW and ECW is so refreshing and keeps us interested. We also don’t want to be locked in to one time period!
Seeing as OOC loves the New Generation, we’ll probably be back down the line. It’s up there with the Montreal Screwjob with things Jay doesn’t wanna talk about!
It’s Jay & V1′s favourite skit from Republic of Telly’s Robogarda. He pronounces tarantula as taran-toolah which is our cue to bring it up! …HOMAR SIMPSAN YA FUCKIN’ ANIMAL YA!
MR. CHIPPIE! (Pronounced “Muster Choppie”) The epicentre of Donegal, apparently. When Jay & V1 were on elective, every place in Letterkenny was measured from MR. CHIPPIE. V1 only has two phrases in Nordie: Mr. Chippie, and “exclusive pictures”.
Episodes are uploaded to iTunes/RSS a week after it’s YouTube release. It’s intentional as we really want you to watch the video version – it’s what takes OSW so long to produce! (And of course, there’s visual gags and it showcases the in-ring far better.) If it’s been over a week, hassle Jay on twitter @OSWreview 😉

Our intro song is “Acceptable in the 80s” by Calvin Harris!
The jingle heard on the placecard is Back to the Future’s “Something’s Changed”
When a joke doesn’t land, we play the Big Break music sting! (A UK snooker TV show in the 80s/90s)
Our outro is FantomenK’s “Neo Geo (Inst)”
Any other music splicey’d can be found in the credits at the end of the video, and generally in the description box of YouTube videos. If you still can’t find it, ask!
Sometimes impromptu Brucie Bonuses and our lives make the ‘main arc’ release schedule a bit erratic. I’ll always update people when production is further along and when a date is set 🙂
Current story arc is the X7 Saga:
• Royal Rumble 2001
• No Way Out 2001 (aiming for 20th April release)
• Final Nitro
• Simulcast RAW
• WrestleMania X7
All three come from V1:
• Crocodile Dundalk: a wrestler gimmick, and Irish knacker version of Australia’s Crocodile Dundee. It was just a pun to piss off OOC.
• Roesputin: The Mad Monk; literally just a terrible pun gimmick name, designed to piss off OOC.
• Dirty Lee: Shockingly not made to piss off OOC! A misheard lyric from “Mugamoodi”, an Indian film, as seen in our December to Dismember review
Dirty Lee in his natural habitat:
Roman Reigns is a wank pheasant.
