    My Absolute Favorite Podcast
    Conrad and Tony together is the most fun that I have with audio on a regular basis.
  • brk jay
    This podcast is terrible. It used to be good but it is now 1.5 hours of commercials. I gave up on it.

    A Must Listen for all 80’s Wrestling Fans
    If you grew up in the 80’s and loved JCP, then this podcast is for you! The watch-along format is awesome and the commentary, promos, and action are all top quality. Conrad is a great host and does a great job of leading the show. Tony is an all-timer and offers such a unique perspective to the wrestling business. I made the show 4-stars because the ADS are getting a bit much. For the most recent show (Nov 2), there were 20 minutes of ads in the first 25 minutes of the show. Yikes!

    Ignorant banter
    I fast forward forty five minutes at least to get past the boring banter to get to the 86 content. Once the show starts it’s great, but the pre show banter is terrible.

    What happen when
    This show is awesome love hearing the stories of the wrestling past going back to the 80s and 90s
  • JPhlaix
    Tbh, I don’t really care for the new 1986 format, it’s a lil too far back for me. Some of the old Dusty, Flair, and AA stuff is cool, but that’s about it. But I still LOVE Conrad and Tony’s banter!!!
  • Bigdinwi
    Can we do something other then 1986?
    I used to listen to all of Conrad’s podcasts weekly. But with all this 1986 stuff I stopped listening To tony. Idk if it’s because Eric has wcw wrapped up or what my 1986 is getting old
  • Rexcranium
    If you having a bad day or just needing some entertainment then this is the podcast for you. Conrad & Tony always entertaining and making me laugh.

    The Only Podcasts You Need
    Conrad Thompson and his AdFreeShows network is without a doubt the best bang for your podcast buck. Currently 7 top tier weekly shows and countless amounts of bonus content and archives. The crown jewel of this network is ‘What Happened When’. The chemistry Conrad & Tony have is second to none and will leave you constantly laughing and wanting more. I love reliving the great NWA/WCW shows with their great commentary. While they are both wrong a lot (The Dungeon of Doom was EPIC and the Turner produced mini movies were some of the best stuff from the early 90’s), getting their take on everything from this time period are boat loads of fun! I also love getting a little bit of AEW commentary at the top of many episodes. I love that Tony has regained his passion for professional wrestling. His love and enthusiasm for AEW is infectious and shared by me. Do yourself a favor and subscribe to this podcast. Should you choose to subscribe to AdFreeShows I will tell you it is money well spent. Thank you Conrad & Tony and keep up the great work!

    That don’t work for me brother

    No more 1986
    I enjoy (almost) all of Conrad’s podcasts, but it’s completely inconsiderate for your audience to spend the whole year covering 1986 of Jim Crockett. No shade, but a large percentage of your listeners either weren’t alive or didn’t watch it. I’ll change my rating in 2022 when you all decide to cover something within 30 years.

    Best Conrad podcast
    This is without a doubt the best podcast Conrad does I don’t care about wrestling now it’s not wrestling the 80’s NWA. AWA. We’re wrestling Vince made it a joke. Tony always makes u. Laugh and tells u what was going on where EB. Just makes stuff up
  • Na Alii Halolo
    It’s too much
    Guys. I’m in sales and marketing, I get it. But geez gosh Almighty 30 minutes before you get to the show.
  • J - W i l l
    Drop the 1986 Gimmick!
    This is my favorite “Conrad Podcast” but the current format is AWFUL. Go back to what it was!!!
  • mrhappy0121
    Ad Free is Easy
    Pro tip you cam fast forward through the ads you whiney little B******
  • Ed1032
    Tony and Conrad are great.
    Tony and Conrad’s chemistry is undeniable. They’re just old friends just talking trash and watching wrestling. It’s great. I haven’t been as big a fan of the straight year of old show watching, because some of those shows weren’t great, but still love these guys!
  • bobbyj1997
    Enough with the begging commercials. Schoivne doesn’t have to work at Starbucks anymore!
  • Mr. Listening
    Saint Anthony
    Noted by his contemporaries for his powerful preaching, expert knowledge of scripture, and undying love and devotion to the poor and the sick, he was one of the most quickly canonized saints in church history. He was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church on 16 January 1946. He is also the patron saint of lost things. Love you guys!!! Given me so much figured I’d give you this!!! Thanks for everything
  • simmonsa0126
    Always Entertaining and Informative
    Conrad and Tony’s chemistry together is “second to none”!! Absolutely a highlight of my week!!! Between this show and Conrad’s podcast with Eric Bischoff (83 Weeks) could and have had an all day audio “Getaway” !!! Thank You Conrad and Tony- May this last FOREVER!!!
  • shotsbypat
    On and on
    Concepts is great. Conrad is perfect. But Tony just talks on and on and he just curses wayyyy too much. A lot of the time, it’s unnecessary.
  • RobNeves
    Butts in seats
    Out of all my podcast I listen too this is my favorite and the 1986 fallow is fantastic
  • Benatown
    Come on guys
    Love Conrad and Tony but the newest episode started after 6 minutes of advertisements ..that’s insane lol also I feel like the new format is ok at best because it’s the same guys every week
  • DinoDefino
    What Happened Now
    This show used be the highlight of my week. I just unsubscribe, Doing a year of JCP sounded good at first but Tony is unenthusiastic unless it’s about AEW or fans paying to be his friend for 69.99 a month on Patreon. This show just seems like one big commercial now and Infomercial for AEW and the overrated AD free shows.
  • Gageman1728
    Great Podcast
    Love the show. This is my favorite Podcast. Tony and Conrad are the best. These two guys keep me laughing.
  • Cado86
    1986 Is Worth Doing The Watch Along
    Growing up in New York, I never got to experience NWA or WCW from this time period. I love that they chose to cover 1986 because I get to experience this year of amazing wrestlers of the time. Not only was this a great year for wrestling, it was also the year I was born. Thank you Conrad and Tony for choosing this format. I’ll keep listening. Jon Highland, New York
  • Poundin' Beers McSlammington
    Top rope entertainment
    This is the type of connection you want from a podcast team! Tony sounds so happy to be back in wrestling and I’m even happier to have him back! Tag team podcast championship material! Thank you gentlemen.
  • AuthorTotten
    Started out as a great show
    Now it’s just a fat a$$hole showing what he really is, someone who who got lucky and has legends tells jokes aimed at the mindless.It’s painful to listen to at this point.
  • Anthony NorCal
    1986 Is BEST LISTEN EVER!!!
    This 1986 follow along is absolutely GOLD!!! Thanks again for all the entertainment!! Anthony Discovery Bay, California
  • trstiger
    Tony Is The Best
    This is by far my favorite podcast. Tony is the comeback story of the century. The only thing I could do without, is when Conrad gets his feelings hurt, and plays the quiet game for ten minutes.
  • TrippAJS
    If pre 90’s wrestling, for you, is greater than sports “entertainment” then you will enjoy this. The last few shows are a nice reminder of just how entertaining wrestling was before it spent every second reminding fans that it was staged. ‘86 is widely regarded as the best JCP year, and JCP of that era is largely regarded the last vestige of non-NY-cartoon-style wrestling. Thanks for giving this sport and art of yesteryear some attention. Lots of us still wish some version of this was around today.
  • Johnny U Jr.
    WHW 1986
    This traveling back in time to cover the great wrestling year of 1986 was a genius idea. I would say one of my absolute favorite years as I watched WWF, NWA (WCW) and others each and every week but its been so cool to relive the 4 Horseman, Dusty, Magnum, Russians and especially our host Tony with David C. during that time. thank you, John U. (Bethlehem, PA)
  • Dartmonster
    Awesome shows
    The last three episodes are so great just listening to the old tracks backs and listening to you guys talk about the 86 era brings me back to child hood this is the best podcast on right now n I am a Conrad Mark I listen to all his podcast 😂 peace ✌🏼 n thank you
  • ThatNicknameIsTaken1357
    1 guy can’t remember anything. The other guy relentlessly shills product. Basically it’s 2 guys with nothing to say for 2 hours. Just terrible.
  • The Avid Wrestling Fan
    3 years in the making!
    I’ve literally waited 3 years for the “January 4, 1986” episode! I got into pro wrestling watching JCP in the mid-80s. In spite of all the pro wrestling I watched on cable TV: the WWF product, World Class, the AWA, etc, etc... I always gravitated to World Championship Wrestling on TBS. Tony Schiavone is on my “Mt. Rushmore” of favorite pro wrestling announcers. I’ve been following WHW since the beginning in 2017. I’ve always wanted to hear Schiavone’s insight on the JCP days. So, I look forward to the coming year’s focus on Jim Crockett Promotions/World Championship Wrestling in 1986!
  • AlsFixed
    Only jcp now
    More 90s wcw please
  • heyitsbella_13
    1986 JCP awesome!
    Thank you Tony and Conrad for reviewing the best year in NWA wrestling history Peak of my childhood at 12-13 years old It was the coolest thing ever Only complaint is scale back the commercials just a little, please Way too many
  • japar50
    Just listened to the first episode of the new year. I’m excited for the following of 1986. I was 16 years old that year and a huge fan. We went to my Grandmas house to watch every Saturday we could. Exciting to already hear Mr Schiavone remember things about those shows. DO NOT LET PEOPLE TALK YOU OUT OF COMPLETING THIS YEAR. This is the best yet.
  • Latino Heat 2000
    Want to like it but usually leaves me bored
    Apparently when the show started it was similar to STW and 83 Weeks, but since Tony doesn’t seem to remember or give great insight, the format changed to every episode being pretty much watch along mystery science theatre. That’s fine on occasion, but it gets old and boring very quick. The attempts at comedy are lame and mostly cringe. I like both Tony and Conrad, but this show tries too hard to be a sophomoric and it just comes off as forced, lame and bland. I am biased though in that I would like more insightful deep dives, so it just might not be for me, but I can see why it appeals to others. There’s definitely worse wrestling podcast, but this one I have just found to be boring and disappointing more often than not.
  • Todd Crow
    Lazy podcast
    How hard is it to go long form on a topic every once in a while? More watch alongs? Great. Something to Wrestle >>>>
  • Cukoo4u
    Listening to this podcast weekly brings back childhood memories!! It is also great to hear Conrad and Tony rib each other, it’s hilarious!! Keep up the great work
  • KLP20774
    Great Show
    I am so happy to hear Tony going to review all the JCP 1986 shows starting in 2021.
  • yannerd
    Who ever is editing this free version, is chopping out chunks so there is no continuity
  • lars honeycheeks
    I love the show
    The WCW Halloween Havoc 1989 episode had everything that I love about the show.
  • jkaraoke
    Great early episodes; Now too many ads
    The first few years were a good mix of content and bill paying ads. I respect the amount of time, money and effort it takes to produce one podcast much less five plus other added features. You need to pay for equipment and the hours it takes to tape an episode, so some ads are cool. But when a fun hobby becomes a money grab it loses its authenticity. Now ALL of Conrad’s shows are more ads than wrestling watch alongs and even then Conrad and Tony are mostly talking about their subscription service with no ads. There at least EIGHT 30 second to 2 minute ads every 5 minutes in an hour show. It’s disappointing to hear the change and the quality of the show suffers from it. Conrad seems to be a good person with a true love for wrestling. I also like Conrad and Tony’s friendship. It’s genuine and true ball busting fun. I encourage you to listen to the early stuff before Tony started with AEW. That was gold. I also encourage you to listen to all of his other podcasts. The early days were really are good. If you can afford the subscription to ADFREE shows then pay it. I’m sure it’s how the show used to be. Otherwise stick to the early stuff.
  • octobrists
    The best podcast
    I mainly listen for the relationship that Tony and Conrad have. It seems like a more personal relationship then his other podcast partners.
  • DoubleAUB
    It's okay.
    Worth listening to. When you listen your first episode, you're gonna hear a LOT of commercials right at the beginning. Don't let it turn you off. Just go ahead and skip past the first 5 minutes. After that you only get commercials every 15 minutes or so.
  • VaBullsFan
    Nothing but ads
    If you like to listen to commercials all day this podcast is for you otherwise avoid at all costs
  • GC1200
    Most underrated podcast ever
    Love these podcasts and Tony schiavone is the best slap nut announcer! Sorry folks we’re desperately out of time!!!!
  • littlesavage13
    Wanted to like this podcast more but Tony really does not contribute much of anything and when he does speak, he is just so negative, it’s just not fun.
  • Jobber4Hire
    Highlight of my week
    Best wrestling pod every week
