Rabblecast 447 - Chyna, Prince, and More!

The world of professional wrestling lost another important name.  One of the founding members of the rebellious group D-Generation X, former WWE Intercontinental Champion(the first woman to hold the IC title), a true pioneer... The 9th Wonder of the World, former WWE Superstar, Chyna(Joan Marie Laurer, aged 46).

The music world also suffered another loss as well. This individual was known for being eccentric, charismatic, and an overall genius in the music world. His Royal Badness, Prince(Prince Rogers Nelson, aged 57) recently passed at his Paisley Park Studio and Home in Minnesota.

Also on this show, Doug hits us with another "Horrible Event in History" as he presents, the King's Cross Fire.

Rabblecast 446 - The Return of Jimmy, The Loss of Doris Roberts & Balls Mahoney

After a few weeks off, our beloved third co-host, Jimmy returns to the show! We find out what he's been up to while he's been away and how many Puscifer shows he attended in a single week.

We also report on the recent passing of two more entertainers. Doris Roberts(aged 90), best known for her role as Raymond Barone's mother, Marie Barone, on the sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, which ran from 1996–2005. Doug apparently, a huge Romano fan(not really).

The second passing we report on is a little more personal. Former ECW wrestler, Balls Mahoney(Jon Rechner, aged 44) passed away in his home in NJ. Regarded as one of the "ECW Originals", Balls Mahoney had a storied career not only in ECW and WWE, but on the independent scene as well. He was a great friend and teacher. He is survived by his wife and son.

Also in this episode, we manage to talk about a few upcoming features. Green Room(2015), starring Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat, and Sir Patrick Stewart. We also have some casting rumors for the joint Sony/Marvel film, Spider-Man: Homecoming. And finally, we talk about the recently announced R rating for the animated adaptation of DC Comics' Batman: The Killing Joke.

Rabblecast 445 - Blackjack Muligan, Merle Haggard, and More!

This week, rather than tackling "big news" or "current trends" we decided to take a more relaxed approach to the episode. We report on the passing of professional wrestler, Blackjack Mulligan(Robert Deroy Windham, aged 73). Blackjack is the father of wrestlers Barry and Kendall Windham, father-in-law of Mike Rotunda, and the paternal grandfather of Bray Wyatt and Bo Dallas.

We also report on the passing of country music legend, Merle Haggard(aged 79). Along with Buck Owens, Haggard and his band the Strangers helped create the Bakersfield sound, which is characterized by the twang of Fender Telecaster and the unique mix with the traditional country steel guitar sound, new vocal harmony styles in which the words are minimal, and a rough edge not heard on the more polished Nashville sound recordings of the same era.

And last, but certainly not least, Doug files another entry into the "Horrible Events in History" file with the, Mothman.
