United Kingdom

Join Jim Smallman and his chums from comedy, music and wrestling as they discuss the month in, well, wrestling.

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!

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!
