SYNOPSIS:

Once again Wrestling Soup is introduced by Anthony "Missionary"Thomas,and his Co-Host Joey Numbas.
It is truly a historic show as the two men will introduce Don Tony and Kevin Castle's "Undercover Informant",
Mr. Mystery in a pre-taped interview from earlier that day. Mr. Mystery is the man or woman that has been
feeding Don Tony crucial information on the inner workings of TNA Wrestling for over a year now.

Joey talks about his reasoning for missing Impact tonight, was that he was at a Brazilian BBQ. It is described
as eat til you drop kind of event. Missionary talks briefly aboutTNA Impact including Samoa Joe vs
Rob Van Dam. Also about Ric Flairs promo calling Jay Lethal "Boy".

Then the two hosts go into the wrestling news of the week. Some topics
included are, Ricky Steamboats health improvement,Scott Hall missing a
court appearance and also being hospitalized with double pneumonia.
Missionary brings up Shane McMahon enjoying his retirement and how he's
doing nothing with his millions. The subject of Raven doing stand up comedy
got quite the rise out of Joey,as he bangs out his customary one-liners.
Kurt Angles possibilities for retiring as well was talked about. Carlitos
recent interview is a hot topic as both men frequently poke fun at Carlitos
inability to do business. It seems to be prevalent in many 2nd and 3rd
generation performers,as they are prima donnas. They close with the news
discussing Jeff Hardy going back to court this week facing drug charges.

Now the moment has arrived in the show that everyone has been waiting
for,is the interview with Mr. Mystery. Missionary informs us that he had to
use voice altering software to protect the identity of the special guest.
So it is a little hard to understand at first due to the voice changer
added. But it becomes more and more understandable the more you hear his
voice. The first subject the men ask is what goes into a creative meeting
in TNA. Mr. Mystery says at one point not too long ago that TNA wanted to
build the ENTIRE company around none other than.............Jay
Lethal???????

He brings up TNA's love-fest they have with AJ Styles. He
shoots on the legitimate structure of TNA Wrestling and who is really in
power and how that power is ranked within the company,including how Jeff
Jarrett has absolutely no stroke in his own company he founded. Mr Mystery
says that Don Tony has been spot on when describing TNA President Dixie
Carter. Says she cares more about what people think of her,instead of what
they think of her company. That is why she is on Facebook,and Twitter so
much. He describes Dixie as someone with "Plastic Morals" that suit her and
her only. Speaks of Abyss and his heel turn,calling it short-sided
booking,and not planning ahead.

Joey asks about Hulk Hogans true feelings for the company,and Missionary asks
about Paul Heymans possibility of coming in. He cannot see Heyman working well
with Bischoff and even more so Hogan. Mystery says that TNA trys to build a brand
of their own off the back of The WWE with the influx of talent. He talks about TNA's emergency
plan if Jeff Hardy has to go to prison and how they will make a storyline
out of it. Mentions that Christian is the only person to really make a
splash in TNA coming from WWE. The topic of all the veterans that are
currently on the roster and their attitude towards TNA. Some of the advice
he would give to a new talent is brought up next. Says WWE really has a
great thing in FCW because they get taught all aspects of the
business,including media lessons,while TNA has none. Missionary asks about
merchandise that they sell and surprisingly you'll hear who gets all that
money.

Mr.Mystery talks so-called "journalists" including GOOFY Powell.
Mystery calls Jason Powell a prick,and "A child in a mans body"!! What
would Mr Mystery do if he could change TNA is discussed,including who he
would fire,and who are the 2 guys he would push. The question of The TNA
world title changing hands so frequently is next as M.M says "Its like
herpes,..everybody has had it,lost it and came back" The final question
revolves around Samoa Joe,and what has happened to his career.

Mr. Mystery goes off topic as he is saying farewell,as he wants to petition
to get The Miz to World Championship status. He plugs his
Twitter.com/mremystery and wishes everyone well. He also tells Anon from
the chat-room to never I.M him when hes in the room.

As they reach to the end of The Soup Missionary and Joey accept phone calls
from the listeners. first to call in was Alpha-Male. Alpha discusses the
similarities of TNA and WCW. Anon was next and talks TNA mismanagement.
Australian,A.J Maggot was next to talk about all the old-timers on the
roster of TNA. Missionary then plugs A.J's "The Indy Show" on
BlogTalkRadio. The final caller of the night was Jay Simola. He discussed
what it would take to get TNA out of Orlando,and move to northeast.

The show wraps up as Missionary and Joey take questions from the chat room.
As the show closes Joey can't help but to jump on the MMA fans giving his
perspective of UFC/Strikeforce being "Fake". The two gentlemen wish everyone back
next week to get your share of Wrestling Soup.

SYNOPSIS:

Wrestling Soup starts out with Anthony Missionary Thomas welcoming all his
homeless into his Soup Kitchen. He welcomes his co-host Joey Numbas and
informs his Homeless that Anthony Don Tony DeBlasi will be the special
guest tonight. Missionary give s a brief preview as to whats on tap for
tonight's show.

Briefly talk Daniel Bryan and also Teddy Hart. Joey makes a comparison to
Teddy Hart and cartoon Droopy Dog.... Joey then talks what kind of rules
Teddy will break if given another chance in WWE.

Missionary then informs us that "Mr. Mystery" will not be joining The Soup
Kitchen tonight, but informs us that he WILL be on next week. Missionary
describes "Mr. Mystery" as a man of his word. We then welcome Don Tony into
the show. The 3 men go right into the subjects of Teddy Hart return in WWE
and also the Daniel Bryan situation. DT calls Teddy Hart a "Baby with an
active penis" and talks about Teddy's immaturity. Joey feels he is a danger
in the ring,and Missionary wonders what is the appeal that Teddy Hart
actually has?? He wonders if bringing in Teddy would enhance The Hart
Dynasty in any way. DT and Joey both feel he would "Rock the Boat" so to
speak.

They then briefly move on to the Martha Hart lawsuit against WWE. All 3 men
have strong opinions on this. Missionary feels it is a leverage move for
power,due to Linda McMahon running for office. Joey talks about how WWE
never used Owen in any sort of negative light. "They never put him in a
duck suit with a Hitler mustache",is how he put it. DT refers to how Martha
Hart will always try to portray WWE as evil and the ones who killed Owen.
Where as the WWE just would like to honor the man,but Martha always halts
the process.

Missionary then sets up The Daniel Bryan audio clip of him cutting a promo
after an indie match. They discuss whether or not Daniel Bryan or Bryan
Danielson can really bring people back to independent wrestling shows. DT
then reads in full the blog that Danielson had written that day. Missionary
calls Danielson "The poster-boy for indie wrestling". DT compares Danielson
to an off Broadway sideshow, that's just there. The men discuss also
wanting to pay attention to indie attendance figures pre-Daniel Bryan,and
post-Daniel Bryan.

Don Tony then interrupts and has to blow off a little steam on those in the
chat room complaining he was boring. He talks about how his fans always
question his tongue-in-cheek humor, and said "If you don't like it,
...Don't fucking listen!!"

Missionary gives us his review of the Maria YouShoot interview,and was not
pleased with it. They then discuss the difference between one of Sean
Olivers interviews and Rob Feinsteins. Joey says that Kayfabe Commentaries
are way more enjoyable than RF's due to Feinstein always seeming to ask the
questions as if he knew the answers already. DT praises Kayfabe due to
having the balls to ask the tough questions. Also they preview the upcoming
Dixie Carter YouShoot,and rip on her hard for being an idiot for drug
testing herself and not doing drugs. Missionary also predicts the
confrontation between Dixie and James E Corrnette will be interesting.

They then move on to Samoa Joe and his lack of dietary habits. Missionary
notes the pigment in Joes skin changed from off tan, to a Sheamus like
pasty white by the end of his match on Impact. The men ponder the length of
Samoa Joe's future in the wrestling biz'.Missionary wonders if Joe chops up
his Little Debbie snack cakes and snorts them, while DT says Joe is hooked
up with an iv to White Castle vanilla shakes.

Missionary then has DT read off a very bizarre letter he had received from
The Ultimate Warrior. They then try to dissect as to what the hell he was
trying to say in it. Then discuss Warriors "Pay-Per-Advice" gimmick he uses
to try to make money.

The show comes to a close as Missionary takes calls from the listeners. The
first caller was AHM Houston who comes on to pay respect to Trent Acid and
also Toni Adams. Missionary discusses the Trent Acid tribute show he had
done and the emotions that flowed through it all,and also puts over
"Acid-Fest" coming up soon. AHM pours his heart out to Don Tony with his
admiration and respect he has for him. Then long time rival to those who
follow Wrestling-News chat room happens once again between Don Tony and
listener Anon. Anon makes peace with AHM and also gives Don Tony advise on
how to improve his show. The lovely Miss Destiny was the next to call in.
Miss Destiny is very excited to talk to Don Tony,or as she calls him "Her
New York stuffed cheesecake". She then gives us her unique view on the
current state of wrestling. They then take a few questions from the chat
room and the men close the show and welcome everyone back into The Soup
Kitchen next week as "Mr. Mystery" will be the guest.
