TNJ Meets Pastor William Eaver  

It's an important episode this week. No spoilers, but Pastor William Eaver has been through a very different journey to most people involved in wrestling, and Jim had wanted him to tell his story on TNJ for a long time. It's a surprising but ultimately inspiring story of rehabilitation, redemption and triumph and we're proud of Pastor for talking to us about it.

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). Features combined wrestler names, a large amount of chatter about the structure of the chamber and many, many bread jokes.

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.

Episode 14: The Royal Rumble Roundtable  

It's everyone's favourite PPV of the year! And the first major one too. Jim talks about the Royal Rumble (and NXT Takeover: San Antonio) with a TNJ Hall of Fame selection of guests: Scroobius Pip, Jimmy Havoc and Jon Briley. Its a good one! Get involved: point people at www.jimsmallman.com/tnj and tweet @jimsmallman using #TuesdayNightJaw. TNJ is proudly part of the Distraction Pieces Network.

The Top Ten Royal Rumble Matches of All Time AND Jim Chooses His 30 Rumble Participants!  

Well, you know how Jim Loves a list... so this week, with the Royal Rumble rapidly approaching this weekend, our host makes not one but two lists - so make sure you play along at home by tweeting @jimsmallman and using #TuesdayNightJaw. First up, Jim chooses his 30 names for the Rumble. The rules? 10 names from Smackdown, 10 names from Raw (not including the men involved in the respective title matches this weekend), plus 6 names from NXT / 205 Live / WWEUKCT and 4 legends / surprise entrants. Then it's the usual list for a big PPV: The top ten matches from the past. A bit different with the Rumble, as Jim has chosen his top ten preliminary matches plus his favourite Rumble match of all time. The usual rules for the top ten though: You can't pick the same wrestler twice or use matches from the same PPV. Obviously the Rumble match is a bit different and can include anyone - as long as you don't break the rule about one match per show!

Jim Answers Your Questions: WWEUKCT, PROGRESS and More!  

Jim's a bit short on time this week after a MAMMOTH weekend of wrestling in the UK, from attending day one of the historic (and excellent) WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament to hosting PROGRESS Wrestling's first ever show in Birmingham on Sunday. WARNING! CONTAINS SPOILERS! With no time to do a full roundtable on the WWEUKCT, Jim answers a few of your questions (as tweeted to @jimsmallman using #TuesdayNightJaw).

TNJ Goes Backstage At PROGRESS To Review 2016  

2016 was a HUGE year for British Wrestling, so Jim had his recorder with him backstage at PROGRESS Wrestling's Unboxing Live last Friday. He has a brief chat about 2016 with various guests: PROGRESS Champion Pete Dunne, "The Villain" Marty Scurll, referee Marc "Paz" Parry, Bea Preistley, fellow promoters Glen Joseph and Jon Briley and a really interesting talk with the currently injured Mark Haskins.
