Episodes

The Top Ten Heel Runs Of All Time  

Jim's had a busy few weeks, so this week we've got a shorter episode of TNJ and this time, it's a list one. Jim talks about his top ten heel runs of all time; not his top ten heels, but rather specific periods of time where certain villainous wrestlers have been embroiled in tremendous storylines and feuds. It's a decent list, but what about yours? Get involved by tweeting @jimsmallman and using #TuesdayNightJaw. The only rule Jim has used this time is to NOT use any PROGRESS wrestlers as he's a bit too biased... THERE IS A LIVE TUESDAY NIGHT JAW ON SEPTEMBER 9th IN LONDON! You should totally come to it. More details at www.jimsmallman.com/tnj. TNJ Is proudly part of the Distraction Pieces Network. Check out all the podcasts! They rock.

TNJ Meets Eddie Dennis  

Have you ever quit your day job to follow your dream? Eddie Dennis did just that last Friday, leaving behind a hard-earned and lucrative career to follow his one true dream: To be a full-time professional wrestler. Jim talks to "The Pride of Wales" about making that huge leap, his ambitions and beginnings; it's a genuinely interesting discussion that anyone who has ever followed an ambition - or has hopes to - can relate to. Eddie is a great guy and a wonderful speaker, so this Skype conversation is a belter. HEY! WE'RE DOING A LIVE TUESDAY NIGHT JAW! On Saturday September 9th in London (at noon) we will be live with a show at the London Podcast Festival. Get tickets and more info via the usual TNJ link - the same one you point new listeners at - www.jimsmallman.com/tnj. Would be great to fill that room, just one day before the biggest PROGRESS show of the year... You can also get involved with TNJ via Twitter - use #TuesdayNIghtJaw and Jim is available via @jimsmallman. And of course, TNJ is proudly part of the Distraction Pieces Network, so support all the good stuff there!

TNJ Meets Jimmy Havoc  

If there was a vote for "most requested" guest for a sit down TNJ interview, then there is no doubt that this week's guest would be one of the people that everyone wanted to hear from. Jim chats to The King of the Goths, the 2017 Tournament of Death winner and the longest-reigning champion in PROGRESS history, the one and only JIMMY HAVOC. Via Skype they discuss Jimmy's beginnings, former jobs, PROGRESS and ToD, injury, mental health and Jimmy even lists his favourite hardcore matches of all time. WARNING! Some swears. And maybe don't listen whilst eating... This probably isn't the last time that the two Jims get together, be it in person or on Skype, but this is a genuinely engrossing two hour chat with one of the most in-demand names in independent wrestling.

TNJ Meets The Golden Boys: William Regal and Robby Brookside  

What an honour this is: At William Regal's request, Jim got together with him and Robby Brookside in a hotel room during the NXT tour of the UK and two friends - who have known each other for over 30 years - just chat about their time in wrestling together. This is SERIOUSLY cool. Two of the most important gentlemen in recent British wrestling history chat about their time spent teaming with each other and wrestling each other hundreds of times around the world. And spoiler alert - we'll probably have to do a second part! Huge thanks to both men for making this happen, and to WWE for letting Jim hang out on the NXT tour last week. SUPPORT THIS PODCAST!

TNJ Meets Pastor William Eaver  

It's an important episode this week.

The Top Ten Wrestlemania Matches of All Time and The Top Ten Matches in the First Five Years of PROGRESS  

Ooh, it's a big list episode of Tuesday Night Jaw this week as Jim counts down not one but TWO top ten lists, using his usual rule system (you can only pick a wrestler once during your top ten list, and you can't choose more than one match per show). First off, with PROGRESS celebrating five years this week, Jim counts down his favourite ten matches in the history of the company he co-owns - you can watch them yourself on www.demand-progress.com - and he explains exactly why they mean so much to him. Then, with Wrestlemania just over a week away, he counts down his top ten matches from the Showcase of the Immortals. Using his own rules it is HARD to choose ten, but he got there! Get involved: Screenshot your lists and tweet them to @jimsmallman, using #TuesdayNightJaw. And keep ratingm, reviewing and recommending this podcast! Point people at www.jimsmallman.com/tnj.

TNJ Meets Session Moth Martina  

Jim had a chat via skype with the one and only Session Moth Martina ahead of her debut at PROGRESS this coming weekend. She's rapidly becoming a big name in wrestling after becoming a cult character in her native Ireland, and is really spreading her wings in 2017. It helps that she's both tremendously entertaining and a cracking human being to boot, so this is a really good chat. It also lets all the PROGRESS fans know what they're in for at the weekend...

Episode 15: The Elimination Chamber Roundtable  

Jim is joined by TNJ all-stars Chris Brooker and Matt Richards in his front room to discuss the Smackdown brand PPV Elimination Chamber, which featured a rather popular conclusion (certainly to Jim at least).

A Non Wrestling Fan's Perspective... With Mrs Smallman  

So this week Jim was meant to interview someone pretty cool but there were a few technical problems. As a joke, he went on Twitter and said he'd interview his wife about wrestling instead, as she's always the non-hardcore fan control that he mentions on nearly every roundtable (seriously, it's become a catchphrase). It was meant as a joke, but you guys sent in a load of questions and rather than not put a podcast out, Jim and Mrs S sat down after the baby had been put to bed and had a chat about wrestling, from both of their perspectives. The things she tolerates for that bloke... SUPPORT US! Rate, review, subscribe, all that. Point newbies at www.jimsmallman.com/tnj. Tweet @jimsmallman using the hashtag #TuesdayNightJaw. And get married, it's pretty rad.
