LISTENER “ALMOST CERTAIN” THAT RD REYNOLDS AND BLADE BRAXTON VOICED OTHER WRESTLECRAP RADIO CHARACTERS
By RD Reynolds
Indianapolis, IN – With the world in tears as the legendary WrestleCrap Radio posts its final show this weekend, one of the twelve listeners has made a wild accusation, claiming the characters on the show were actually performed by its hosts, RD Reynolds and Blade Braxton.
“Wish I’d never put two and two together,” said John Nelson, aka Ultimate Kennedy, from his Unabomber style shack. “This definitely makes it a lot less fun.”
Nelson, who has followed the podcast since its inception in 2005, said he began to figure things out late last year when Angry Jim and Blade were having an on-air disagreement. “I know that Angry Jim and Blade ‘talk’ to each other, but I’m really thinking that they were the same person,” Nelson explained. “I mean, their voices were really similar. I bet if Angry Jim wasn’t screaming all the time, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. Nintendo John sounded a lot like Blade as well, though come to think of it, Nintendo John sounded like Angry Jim too. So maybe Angry Jim was Nintendo John. I guess that means that if Blade wasn’t Angry Jim, he wasn’t Nintendo John. But I think he was.”
“Then there’s Midnight Rose,” Nelson continued. “For sure that was Blade, because RD had to correct him about that over the years when Blade would refer to himself as Rose. So yeah, mark that one down. Blade’s gotta be Iron Mark Tyson too. And come to think of it, Sir Alec sounded a lot like Blade as well. That one I’m not sure of though; perhaps Blade just has a cousin from the UK.”
When asked to further elaborate, Nelson continued by saying, “I have a sneaking suspicion that RD did different characters too. I remember that horrible Fantasy Booking Island episode and Ricardo Montelban and RD sounded really similar. I’ve watched Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn forty times, and never once have I thought that Kahn sounded like RD. But he did on that show. And you know, sometimes I closed my eyes when Mike Check was talking, and I could almost picture RD doing the talking. It sort of makes sense as well, since he talks about stuff that is from the 50′s and 60′s a lot, and RD was probably around back then.”
Nelson concluded by saying that the only character he was unsure of was Gay Popeye, noting that voice had similar characteristics to both Reynolds and Braxton.
