There is a lot of buzz around the world of professional wrestling and for once it isn’t WWE or AEW. All eyes are currently fixed on Talk N’ Shop A Mania 2. After Chris Jericho tweeted about the event, many are wondering what exactly this whole thing is.
In a recent post on Twitter, ‘The Demo God‘ marketed Talk N’ Shop A Mania 2 as the worst PPV. He and Sammy Guevara went so far as to call it “El Sh**”, which is apparently Spanish for “Sh**”.
Talk N’ Shop A Mania 2 is an annual PPV started by former WWE Superstar Luke Gallows (now Doc Gallows) and Karl Anderson. It involves some of the craziest theme matches you’ll ever see. In fact, it is actually marketed as the worst PPV.
The idea of the PPV is to show the raw and funny side of professional wrestling. There was a Talk N’ Shop A Mania 1 which was a success. Now, the sequel is coming in hot and everyone is prepared.
“We thought the first one was funny,” says Anderson. “When we found out a lot of other people did too, we said, ‘Now they’re in trouble because we’re going to take our humor to a whole new level.’”
According to Sports Illustrated, the PPV aims to bring out “wrestling’s eccentricities to give viewers a much-needed laugh, and there is a unique balance to a show that, at first glance, appears to favor style over substance.”
Gallows and Anderson, who last appeared for WWE at the WrestleMania for the Boneyard Match between AJ Styles and The Undertaker, now aim at delivering an over the top representation of Wrestling.
The entire thing sparks memories of the insane gimmicks of the New Generation Era and the Attitude Era. The PPV will also feature appearances from wrestling legends such as Scott Steiner, “Hurricane” Shane Helms, and Tommy Dreamer among others.
The event will also provide a platform for upcoming Superstars. It will feature a deep story that shows the truth about the 4th member of WWE’s Evolution Mark Jindrak.
A key match of the event is the ‘Ball for a Ball’ match. Gallows has described the match as “We try to rip each other’s b***s off.” A highly anticipated match is Chico El Luchador (Romero) against Chavo Guerrero.
We are definitely waiting to see the event and its bizarreness. Until then, we’ll just have to be patient.
