#125 The King Of Ilya’s Court

12Jul

The NHL Draft and Free Agency have come and gone, so now's the time hockey fans start to go stir-crazy. Yelling at Bieber!?! You should be ashamed of yourselves! Anyways, Pete shares an anecdote of futility and we discuss Ilya Kovalchuk getting the hell out of Dodge. Dodge, New Jersey. That's where the arena is, right? I can't make any sense of that state. 

and then...

What goes better with hockey than punk rock? Wrestling? Yes, Wrestling.

We're joined for an interview by Arda Ocal. Arda is one of professional wrestling's best known media personalities. He was the creator and host of Aftermath, a WWE post-show on The Score Network(now Sportsnet 360) in Canada. He's currently a columnist for The Baltimore Sun and is involved with The Layfield Report, a writing project with WWE commentators John Layfield and Micheal Cole that is raising funds for underpriviledged kids.

Arda also happens to be a die-hard hockey fan, particulary for his hometown team, the Toronto Maple Leafs. He's a play-by-play commentator for the Leafs' American Hockey League affiliate, the Toronto Marlies.

 

Former Marlies coach Dallas Eakins takes over the Edmonton Oilers

-WWE NXT(airs on SN360 in Canada but is only available on Hulu Plus in the States, though may move to a cable network soon)

 

"The Generic Luchador" El Generico(now Sami Zayn in NXT)

I'll leave it to With Leather's Brandon Stroud to rundown why she(and her entrance) are so great:

If you’re new to NXT (because of this column or otherwise), Emma’s entrance has several important steps: (1) her hilariously obnoxious entrance theme, which should never be changed (2) the dance, which you already know about (3) Emma BEING AFRAID OF BUBBLES (4) everyone in the crowd doing the Emma dance, because she’s the most over person on the show (5) the best part of the dance, when she’s at the ring apron and basically mimes Triple H’s entrance, but with DANCE ARMZ (6) an attempt to “skin the cat,” which does not always work (7) happy dancing for ring entrance success!
