***The program was opened by a 100% free to the listener’s interview with former WWE and TNA star BG JAMES who will be part of Saturday’s Tribute to the Fairgrounds 2: Tag Team Warfare held at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds. BG spoke candidly about inducting his father “Bullet” Bob Armstrong into the WWE HOF, working in WWE, the best rib he ever pulled on co-workers, serving in the original Gulf War, his feelings on the demise of Osama Bin Laden, his opponents on Saturday (“Dangerous” Doug Gilbert & “Wildfire” Tommy Rich) and being extremely open about Scott Hall and BG shared his own battle with substance abuse. This is a CANNOT MISS INTERVIEW!! Be sure to follow BG on Twitter @BGRoadDoggJames.

***In what was a one-time endeavor to mark his one year as the host of Online World of Wrestling Radio, Alan shared for the final time how things went down after the 50th episode of the program that led him to even be the host. Alan regretted having to do it but forces from outside the program made him feel he needed to share.
***Following a commercial break, Spug, Mase and Alan broke down the controversial World Heavyweight championship change on Friday Night Smackdown (check the message forums if you disagree), the fun of Monday Night Raw that included a “tie incident”, the matches announced for the Over the Limit PPV and recapped the two eliminations on Tough Enough. Alan reported news on John Morrison’s injury, Nunzio’s new WWE job, Tyson Kidd’s new manager and Trevor Murdoch’s two dark matches.
***Despite the objections from the contributors, Alan covered last Thursday’s TNA Wrestling iMPACT program that will be renamed this week. Previewed Sunday’s Sacrifice PPV and the debuts/returns on Thursday’s program.
***Before ending the program, Alan took time to thank everyone who has contributed to the program as he celebrated 50 episodes as the host of Online World of Wrestling Radio including Spug, Mase, Tim Stein, Sir Rockin, Phil Strum, Kevin K. Scott, Sean Oliver, Kevin Eck, Sarah & Ari Daigen, Jim Varsallone, Scott Fishman, Anthony Castellano, Sean McCaffery, Jason Deadrich and Brad Dykens.
