#756 – Wodapalooza 2023 Day 2 Recap Show

Sevan Matossian (00:00):

Fucking talking. Do you hear me?

Taylor Self (00:02):

Are we live right now?

Sevan Matossian (00:03):

Yeah. Uh, bam. We’re live.

Taylor Self (00:05):

Of course we are.

Sevan Matossian (00:06):


Taylor Self (00:07):

That’s, that was my cue that we were live. You talking shit. Um, all I see is day one live. I can’t find, Hey,

Sevan Matossian (00:16):

You think, you think Sean ever just turns over to fucking Chase and is like, or to Bill runners? Like, listen, motherfucker

Taylor Self (00:21):

No shot

Sevan Matossian (00:22):

When I’m talking. Bill, keep your fucking mouth shut. Uh, did anyone else see, um, uh, did anyone else see Clyde Down Media? Scott riff about the Rude Spectators? No, but I can’t wait. I, I love his riffs. I hope he’s getting crazy. Who? Hey, uh, Scott Schweitzer on Clyde’s Down Media. When he finally starts getting loose with that shit, that shit’s gonna be good. He’s onto something. He’s just kind of feeling himself now, seeing what he can get away with. But when he really, like, you know, we’re all judgmental motherfuckers to the gills. And, uh, like the only honest thing anyone ever said about Taylor in here is that he looks like, uh, uh, that guy, uh, who watches the nuclear waste or one of the things, <laugh> or, or he is the fucking bouncer at like one of those gay bars in, in the city of the Blue Oyster or some shit. Matt SU’s in the house.

Mattew Souza (01:10):

Oh, yo, hold

Sevan Matossian (01:11):

On. Uh, good to see you. Um, okay, I muted you. Okay. Hey, uh, I know what I wanna see and I haven’t gone over here to see this,

Taylor Self (01:19):

So yeah, let we cover the leaderboard. I

Sevan Matossian (01:22):

Just say not to talk over me. God damnit, go say it.

Taylor Self (01:29):

All right. So leaderboard is updated things to note. Page powers in first. Emily Roth in second, Danny Spiegel, and third City I it motion fourth Carrie, fifth Elisa Philiano. And six, we predicted that things that are important is that Olivia Kte and the other two athletes who went the wrong direction, if we can scroll down, oh, shit got kept added to their score because they got time capped. So they got time capped, meaning that the judges or the score review team couldn’t just subtract 30 seconds or however long her additional swimming took in her workout. So what they had to do is they had to guesstimate how many extra double unders to give her for the time allotted that they misdirected her swim. And people are complaining. There’s a guy on Brian Spin’s story. I’m gonna turn the sound on and play it through my mic.

Sevan Matossian (02:22):

Oh, I can play it on the screen.

Taylor Self (02:23):

Play it on the screen. Play his, uh,

Sevan Matossian (02:25):

Story. Okay. Okay. Before we get down there, can we just talk, just talk about this real quick. Page powers 4 73 looking good. Look at this battle between Emily Rolf and Danny Spiegel. But here’s my question for you, is Emily Rolf out was her injury so severe in that last workout that she’s toast and it’s gonna be between Cindy Michelen, Emma Carey, and, uh, Danny Spiegel. Only 15 point separates these three.

Taylor Self (02:50):

That’s a good question. You wouldn’t think she would have any issue with her calf or ankle on the chest of our bench press bike portion. Um, with the burpees and the snatch may give her issue. We just don’t know.

Sevan Matossian (03:02):

Okay. Uh, okay. Uh, do you want, while I pull up this, um, video, do you want to tell us what happened so we know what to look for?

Taylor Self (03:12):

So, in, in the story? No, I haven’t even listened to it yet. I just read it.

Sevan Matossian (03:16):

Okay. So I copy here and I send to here, and then I try to play this without, uh, showing my text messages.

Taylor Self (03:32):

Good luck.

Sevan Matossian (03:33):

Thank you. This part always scares the shit out of, uh,

Taylor Self (03:38):


Sevan Matossian (03:39):

Suza. Oh, shit. Look at that. It’s already up there. I didn’t even know I was sharing my screen already. Okay,

Taylor Self (03:43):

Boom. Do it.

Sevan Matossian (03:44):

You story, uh, sound on. Okay, here we go. How do I play?

Taylor Self (03:56):

Click back and then forward, forward, forward. No, no, no. Turn the sound back.

Speaker 4 (04:05):

Shit like this happened. So the last workout event workout, some of the albums went the wrong direction. Okay, that sucks. That really does suck that you went the wrong way. But why wrong?

Sevan Matossian (04:19):

Oh, so we have to go, we have to go to his story. Matt Ray, we have to go here. It’s here where turn is sound.

Taylor Self (04:35):

On turn. Sound on. He’s at Waap, Pluto. And now go back. Okay, here we go.

Speaker 4 (04:40):

Some, some of the athletes went wrong direction. Okay, that sucks. That really does Wrong adjusted was that they gave him the doubt of you went the wrong way by about 20, 30 seconds. In 20, 30 seconds in your first round, you did double unders. You’ve got X amount of double unders. And then they gave the, those athletes, those reps, even though they didn’t do those reps, and they the wrong direction. And I wouldn’t, I’m gonna be, I’m pissed and I’m angry because that, let’s see, you athletes is outta the spot.

Sevan Matossian (05:20):

Hey, this is why I’ve never, this, this kid makes no fucking sense.

Taylor Self (05:25):

Well, he, he’s got a couple things wrong.

Sevan Matossian (05:28):

This, this. Oh, there’s no sound still. You guys can’t hear this serious. You guys didn’t hear any of that? I I heard it. Well, yeah, but fucking you’re at home.

Taylor Self (05:38):

So what he’s saying is basically

Sevan Matossian (05:40):

He’s out of his fucking mind. If I understand that correctly. That guy’s fucking out of his mind.

Taylor Self (05:44):

Why is he out of his mind?

Sevan Matossian (05:46):

Uh, because he’s upset. Basically, he’s admitting that he’s upset that someone he wanted to get in didn’t get in because some other people were fucking given some reps. Those people fucking deserve some sort of, well, I’m, I, I mean, you have to not misunderstand that. Those people must deserve, deserve some at least acknowledgement because the referees told him to go the wrong way. Well, I not only misunderstood, but I I think they were going the right way and then they were told to go the wrong

Taylor Self (06:10):

Way. And that’s how he was misunderstood. He’s claiming that the athletes, oh, I’m sorry, you went the wrong direction. Like it’s their fault. Yeah. But the athletes tried to go in the correct direction and the judge directed them off

Sevan Matossian (06:21):

Course. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Listen,

Taylor Self (06:23):

I don’t think he understands that

Sevan Matossian (06:24):

You fucking idiots under 30 years old. Throw your phones away.

Taylor Self (06:28):

That fucking idiot. Should

Sevan Matossian (06:29):

You guys, you guys, are you guys just ruining your lives? Hey, I heard something fascinating from an elite coach the other day. What? That the, that the difference between that, uh, you’re a professional athlete and, uh, especially in ball sports, and you spend two or three hours a day looking at your phone, that’ll, that’s enough to fuck up your eyes to make it the difference between a great athlete or someone who makes it to the pros and someone who doesn’t because of just that, uh, what it does to your eyes. Yeah. Ball sports, and especially looking at your phone any hours, uh, prior to, uh, taking the field. Hmm. Pretty smart, right?

Taylor Self (07:03):

Interesting. Yeah. I mean, it’s only smart if it’s true.

Sevan Matossian (07:05):

Oh, it’s got, I mean it’s, Hey, even if it’s not true, it seems like a no. There’s some things that even if they’re not true, you should just fucking be like, yeah, okay, that’s like, you know,

Taylor Self (07:12):

Well, video games enhance is hand-eye coordination and that’s proven,

Sevan Matossian (07:16):

Uh, maybe hand-eye coordination, but, uh, so does Jack and Off. So does anything, but in, just in this realm, maybe not in that realm. Maybe you need to put the TV 200 feet away from you.

Taylor Self (07:27):

I don’t know. I mean, hand-eye coordination transfers to hand-eye coordination. I’m not saying, I’m not saying elite athletes should go play video games, but LeBron,

Sevan Matossian (07:34):

LeBron, there’s James better things to do. LeBron

Taylor Self (07:36):

James plays video games. Antonio Brown, arguably the best receiver ever, despite him being totally fucking stupid, plays a lot of video games

Sevan Matossian (07:46):

Beyond stupid. But, uh, the ratio of them playing video games to them, uh, doing other stuff. Oh, look at this. Suza is still, still no sound. Are you fucking kidding me? Can you guys hear us? This thing would be fool of people saying there’s no sound if there’s no sound. Hey dude, you gotta turn up your, uh, your something. Paige hitting failure on. What, what are we missing right now while we fight? Oh,

Taylor Self (08:10):

Are they? Yeah, everyone can hear us. We’re good. Um, we are missing some sort of stream. Oh, uh oh. What? Oh, refresh.

Sevan Matossian (08:23):

Uh, ladies are going in, in, in, uh, Flagler

Taylor Self (08:28):

Sbar and Bench

Sevan Matossian (08:30):

And uh, I’m gonna unmute, uh, Suza. And Suza seems to have Vener in his sights.

Mattew Souza (08:36):

Yep. I’m down here. All the athletes are corralled up getting ready to go in. This is where they hold him here and then they’ll position him a little bit further up and then bring him into the stadium. The stadium by the way, is packed. There’s a huge line. I dunno if you guys saw what I was going. There’s a huge line just to get into the stadium.

Taylor Self (08:52):

Yeah, if you look at the Flagler stream, it is unreal.

Sevan Matossian (08:57):

Hey, so there’s only that, there’s only this one stream with this giant wide

Taylor Self (09:01):

Yeah, it appears so.

Sevan Matossian (09:04):

Uh, does anyone else have a better stream than this? How do you guys know what place anyone’s in? Do we have a camera down there? Is Heidi down there? Yeah,

Mattew Souza (09:10):

I think Heidi’s there. Yeah.

Taylor Self (09:12):

Oh, you know what? They fucked up. There’s an elite bro. There’s a broadcast that says Elite Broadcast wa Blue’s at Day one that is live right now. And they’re zoomed in on page powers and Danny Spiegel right now. So they just have their stream Mistitled page powers. Oh shit. Page power’s just one part a

Mattew Souza (09:31):

Check out in.

Sevan Matossian (09:32):

Okay, let me see if I can get down to that. Oh shit. Let me see if I can get down to that stream. Oh, Danny is hurt. Okay, here we go. Uh, Roman headed off to, uh, battle. Oh, these are some great angles though. Is that Sigmund’s daughter and LER going to war against each other?

Taylor Self (10:07):

Page Powers. O obliterated. Everyone along with Danny Spiegel, they bench a lot at Mayhem.

Sevan Matossian (10:21):

Okay, you wanna tell us what the workout is that we just missed? Uh,

Taylor Self (10:24):

Yeah, so the workout was three rounds for time, 25 chest debar pullups, and 15 dumbbell bench presses with a 50 pound dumbbell in each hand for the ladies. As soon as they finished that couplet three rounds, they advance to their bike and they’ve got 21 calories. Finish the workouts. They’re gonna rest until the 10 minute mark. And then they will start a for time workout of 30 bar facing burpees. As soon as they finish their 30 bar facing burpees. They have 30 snatches at 85 pounds with the condition of them being unbroken. And if you break it, you have a three burpee penalty at every break.

Sevan Matossian (11:03):

Hey, that’s exactly my point. Uh, just so you know, Kaepernick plays, uh, video games, LeBron plays video games. Uh, Tom Brady does not play video games. Thank you. I don’t know who Tom

Taylor Self (11:14):

Brady is. Okay. That’s not a great comparison cuz

Sevan Matossian (11:17):

I know, but when, when 80% of the guys play video games, uh, then, then of course there’s gonna be some dudes who play video games. I’m just saying that I I I think it’s a no-brainer that looking at your phone like this prior to going out and

Taylor Self (11:29):

You know what’s a better question? You know what’s a better question? Fuck the NFL and the N NBA a I wonder if, uh, Mike Trout plays video games cuz that fucker hits bombs.

Sevan Matossian (11:37):

What? Well, uh, baseball players

Taylor Self (11:39):

Baseball. Oh yeah. And I guarantee you he does.

Sevan Matossian (11:41):


Taylor Self (11:41):

I’m not saying he’s a hunter. He hunts, he does bow hunting.

Sevan Matossian (11:46):

Okay. So the girls have had a, a small rest Oh, oh so cursed that are still finishing the first half. What if they don’t finish the first half in the time cap? They just toss ’em off the

Taylor Self (11:56):

Bike. She will, she will. Uh, some may not. Wow. Fussier is still on her dumbbell bench.

Sevan Matossian (12:04):

So those are fifties?

Taylor Self (12:06):


Sevan Matossian (12:08):

How old is, uh, fus?

Taylor Self (12:10):

She’s gonna get time cap. No idea. Like 12.

Sevan Matossian (12:15):

Okay. And Kte is 13

Taylor Self (12:17):

<laugh>, isn’t she? 17 years old?

Sevan Matossian (12:24):

Oh, and Emma Wow. Too. Yeah. Kte is young. She, I think she just turned 17.

Taylor Self (12:29):

Yeah, the dumbbell bench got Emma Carey. Look at her upper body. Just not super developed.

Sevan Matossian (12:41):

I wonder how often these guys do that. These gals, uh, do a dumbbell bench. I do it if ever

Taylor Self (12:46):

Do. I’m fucking four times a week right now.

Sevan Matossian (12:48):

Look at Jaffs. Jack CF is just ruthless. You guys missed it. And uh, Emma Carey, rest in peace. Just like, uh, just one heat. It was, it was just one heat. Yeah, it was. Wow. Okay, well, um, hopefully they’re gonna put, uh, Roman and the, uh, and the other big boys, Vener and Ricky all next to each other.

Taylor Self (13:12):

I don’t think Sarah’s much of a chance to podium. Let’s go back over to the leaderboard. Sarah Sigmund’s daughter. She’s in 12th. There’s ah, yeah, I do not see her podium Ming.

Sevan Matossian (13:27):

Okay guys, so basically, uh, as this event rolls off, uh, Paige, so Paige is in a good space right now. She basically, she, this is hers to lose. Uh, I don’t know. How did it, does anyone have any information on Emily Rolfe?

Taylor Self (13:40):

She’s right there. Paige just took first in that workout. So what is, without a doubt, hers to lose.

Sevan Matossian (13:45):

But do you, does anyone know how Emily Rolf did in that? Um, and did she even compete or is she out, did she pull herself out?

Taylor Self (13:51):

She competed in this part A

Sevan Matossian (13:53):

Oh, okay. You saw her on the field. Okay, so this has a time cap of seven minutes. As Taylor was saying, they’re gonna do 30 bar facing burpees and 30 unbroken power, uh, snatches. Why does it say unbroken? Oh, cause because

Taylor Self (14:08):

If you break it up, you get a three bur penalty.

Sevan Matossian (14:10):

Wow. Okay. And

Taylor Self (14:12):

Where’s Paige? Yeah, I’m really watching Paige Power. She’s in the Golden Brown kind of like, you know that yellow dog poop color of legging in the black shirt

Sevan Matossian (14:22):

There? She’s yeah. The yellow dog poop. Okay.

Taylor Self (14:24):

You know what I’m talking about? You know what I’m talking

Sevan Matossian (14:25):

About? No, but what stream are you looking at? Cuz I’m looking at a stream and I don’t see shit.

Taylor Self (14:29):

I’m on the elite broadcast Guap Polo’s a day One stream.

Sevan Matossian (14:35):

I’m on the live competition. Uh, elite broadcast.

Taylor Self (14:39):

Wrong one.

Sevan Matossian (14:42):

Huh? Interesting. But I Okay.

Taylor Self (14:47):

Search, search it and you

Sevan Matossian (14:48):

YouTube. But I got a good angle. I’m, I’m seeing good stuff. I’m, it’s on Danny Spiegel right now.

Taylor Self (14:55):

You’re on Elite Broadcast Waples at Day one

Sevan Matossian (14:58):

Elite broadcast Waples at day one Live competition. Yep.

Taylor Self (15:01):

Okay. Just to the right is of her and the dog Poop leggings is, oh, Paige Bowers.

Sevan Matossian (15:05):

Yeah, those are dog poop. Wow. You’re right.

Taylor Self (15:08):

Colors don’t lie, man.

Sevan Matossian (15:11):

Uh, it does look like Danny’s cycling a little bit faster

Taylor Self (15:15):

Than does her chest hit the ground? Let’s watch on this next rep. Yes. Oh, they cut out. Come on. Yes. Sydnee Mcli hits the ground. Bam. Chest first.

Sevan Matossian (15:26):

Danny’s touches. I’m seeing that. Hey, she rest her boobs gently on the ground. She rests them gently

Taylor Self (15:34):

And Mcca Carey’s first to the barbell.

Sevan Matossian (15:38):

Oh, you’re ahead of me. Son of a bitch. I’m refreshing. Okay. And, uh, Paige Powers. Wow. So Danny’s last to the barbell.

Taylor Self (15:49):

Dude. There is no shot. If Emma goes unbroken, I’ll freak out. She looks good, man.

Sevan Matossian (15:57):

Hey, Danny’s really, uh, fooling around here.

Taylor Self (15:59):

She’s trying to go. She’s, she’s planning to take a big rest and go on broken. I don’t think that’s the good strategy for the workout. I think you have to plan for a break somewhere. Hit your burpees and get right back on it.

Sevan Matossian (16:09):

Hey, if Cindy Mc needs to put a couple places between her and Danny Spiegel Oh, and Emma Carey. Ooh, this could get interesting. This could get spicy.

Taylor Self (16:17):

Emma Carey may go on Broken. Dude. Wow. I I do think the women’s weight at 85 pounds is a bit easier than the men’s 1 25.

Sevan Matossian (16:29):

Wow. Oh, did Danny’s cycling though, Danny?

Taylor Self (16:31):

She’s gotta have, she’s gotta have 10 to less than 10 to go. Emma, I’m watching for Judge’s hand.

Sevan Matossian (16:38):

Look at that technique that Danny uses. A

Taylor Self (16:40):

She’s got five to go. It’s almost

Sevan Matossian (16:42):

Wow. Pedal Bell. Swing

Taylor Self (16:45):

Four to go. Oh no.

Sevan Matossian (16:47):

What? She

Taylor Self (16:48):

Failed. She dropped the bar. Her grip blew

Sevan Matossian (16:50):

Up. Oh,

Taylor Self (16:51):

She’s got one more burpee. She’s gonna get right back on it. She’s got four reps to go. Gotta pick it up. Gotta pick it up girl one. Oh, she failed it. She failed it.

Sevan Matossian (17:02):

So is that her right?

Taylor Self (17:04):

She’s got another,

Sevan Matossian (17:05):

Is that her right hand? Which hand? Wow. She shook it out. So her grip is just toast.

Taylor Self (17:12):

No, she failed the overhead lockout on that last one. She’s got four reps

Sevan Matossian (17:15):

To go. Oh shit. Danny played it smart and Danny wins it. Holy shit.

Taylor Self (17:20):


Sevan Matossian (17:21):

Crazy brilliant. Talk about strategy. Right?

Taylor Self (17:27):

And Emma Carey comes in. Paige Powers three reps to go. Awesome. And Page Powers wins. Waap Polooza 2023.

Sevan Matossian (17:40):

Awesome. This could be the beginning of something special. Here they are. Rolling in one by one. Cindy, uh, Sydnee. Michelon. She needed to do a little better here. Still not a bad, uh, performance for her, but she needed to win this in order to uh, I think get on the podium. Get

Taylor Self (18:03):

The podium. Yep. Yep. I’m gonna take a leap of faith and say that Emily Rolf is off of the podium. And

Sevan Matossian (18:13):

Who is that on all four, like that. Was that cursed header?

Taylor Self (18:16):

Not sure. Let’s see.

Sevan Matossian (18:20):

So Danny, is Danny Spiegel the only one who made it? Unbroken? Yeah. Oh shit. Did you see the judge getting Michel’s away? Yeah. Dirty. They’re Oh, these girls are hurting

Taylor Self (18:30):


Sevan Matossian (18:30):

Yeah. Uh, Sydnee Wells crosses Paige and Danny having a little powwow.

Taylor Self (18:40):

Danny Spiegel is gonna take second place. I don’t know. Tisha, Mike jump. Emily Rolf Emma Carey is 1615 points down from the podium.

Sevan Matossian (18:51):

And, uh, fus Lee a Rebecca’s in two. Good honor.

Taylor Self (18:55):

I think Emma Carey may, may make the podium, man.

Sevan Matossian (18:59):

Oh, and Emily Rolf is still out there. She’s Warren.

Taylor Self (19:02):

Yeah. Emily Roth. Good honor. Yeah. Emily Rolf is

Sevan Matossian (19:07):

Near last though, right?

Taylor Self (19:08):

Yeah. She’s gonna drop off the podium.

Sevan Matossian (19:12):

We’ll give you guys another quick look here at the, uh, leaderboard. Uh, looks like Paige Powers is going. How did, how did Paige do in the first event? Second. She won it. She won it. Okay. Okay. And then second in this one. So that’s pretty good. Uh, Danny Spiegel, uh,

Taylor Self (19:28):

Second and first.

Sevan Matossian (19:30):

Wow. Okay. So she did what she needed to do. Yeah. Uh, Emily Roth will probably drop out and, uh, Sydnee Michan will will probably lose her spot to uh,

Taylor Self (19:43):

I was gonna say Emma Carey, but I don’t think Emma Carey did well on the Echo byte part.

Sevan Matossian (19:47):

Oh, okay. Alrighty. Let’s hear, maybe they’re gonna give us a, a live announcement in the stadium and we can uh, we can eavesdrop. Do you listen to the audio on there?

Taylor Self (19:57):

No, I don’t have my audio on.

Mattew Souza (19:59):

And we’ll have a lot to sort out.

Sevan Matossian (20:02):

Uh, two girls are still going. Uh, so Sean Woodland just said we will have a lot to sort out. Uh, girls are still crossing the finish line. Paige Powers is smiling from ear to ear. Looks like she’s talking to one of the camera guys on the Mayhem Media team

Mattew Souza (20:25):

Looking like she’s gonna championship.

Sevan Matossian (20:29):

Is that too loud? Can you hear this plane in my office?

Taylor Self (20:31):

I can hear it. That’s fine. Every time I exit out of the window my stream falls behind. That’s so fucking

Sevan Matossian (20:42):

Annoying. I know. Yeah, I agree. Me too.

Mattew Souza (20:45):

On this first element up,

Sevan Matossian (20:52):

Dude, is that page right there, she bench presses like a champ, like a pro. So

Taylor Self (20:56):

You’re supposed to a neutral grip touch the bottom head of the dumbbell to your shoulder and

Sevan Matossian (21:01):

Really that’s the most efficient way. Neutral grip.

Taylor Self (21:03):

Without a doubt. With a bells.

Sevan Matossian (21:07):

Brilliant. I betcha they all weren’t doing that either. I betcha there were cats out here like this for sure.

Taylor Self (21:14):

Wow. She smacked it.

Sevan Matossian (21:19):

Uh, Jeremy Garcia, can I get a female correspondent please? Can only stare at the thumb Stash Nogging for So <laugh>.

Taylor Self (21:26):

I can put a wig on.

Sevan Matossian (21:28):

Someone wants a piece of that ass. Uh, Julie Dart Day. That’s her boyfriend. Okay, let’s listen to Paige. Uh, powers, uh, speak.

Speaker 8 (21:40):

Okay. One, I knew it was gonna hurt. Maybe not that bad, but you know, I’m glad I stayed tough. I got through it. So

Speaker 9 (21:48):

You are showing for the

Sevan Matossian (21:49):

Last she stayed tough and got through it. I have to stop it cuz we can’t listen to more than seven seconds without getting in trouble. Here we go.

Speaker 9 (21:55):

Two days just has been extraordinary Across events. What kind of goals have you hit for yourself in

Sevan Matossian (22:01):

The last Yes. Tell me, uh, Ms. Powers, what kind of goals have you set for yourself?

Speaker 9 (22:06):

Two days of competition?

Speaker 8 (22:07):

Um, I think for me, like it’s been so much more about chasing like the win or chasing the podium. It’s really like this is the first time I feel like I’ve felt my confidence in the elite division and I just haven’t felt like worthy for the past two years that I’ve

Sevan Matossian (22:22):

Been. I haven’t felt worthy until I was on the Sev podcast. And then after that everything kind of just fell into place. I completely understand Paige. Right, right. And uh, we feel the same about having you, uh, guys, I’m not being rude. I just can’t play more than seven seconds without getting, uh, tossed up. Okay. That was her boyfriend that was not a, uh, media guy. So, uh, she has a boyfriend. Everyone stand down. Uh, wig please. Taylor Wad. Zombie. <laugh> <laugh>, uh, uh, Jack cf coming with the, the harsh comments again, but probably true. The Froning Effect. Yeah. Impressive. I guess that, uh, it’s gonna be interesting to see, uh, how Paige and Bailey and, uh, Haley play it out this year. Uh, in the open. That’s three really, really, really, really, really strong girls.

Taylor Self (23:15):

Paige Bailey and who?

Sevan Matossian (23:17):

Uh, Haley Adams.

Taylor Self (23:19):

Uh, that’s right. Is Haley still a mayhem athlete though?

Sevan Matossian (23:21):

She is. Yeah. She’s getting at it big time. It sounds like she’s kind of uh, they’ve reinvented uh, the team around her and uh, she seems happy as a clam. Good and uh, word on the street. Yeah. Uh, okay. They are sorting out the leaderboard. They’re playing some, uh, hype commercials now showing some cute pictures of Pat Vener and some strong man shit. It looks like a compilation of, I dunno what this, where this video’s from. Maybe this is a tear commercial. Oh yeah, it is. Uh, the boys are getting ready. Let’s uh, go over to Mr. Susan. Find out, uh, what he can hear on the ground over there. What’s up Matthew?

Mattew Souza (24:08):

Yo, dude, this place is fast. I can’t get it anywhere. I dunno if you guys can see this, but there’s just a huge crowd of people right here. Yeah. And they’re actually all just standing there cuz the only spot you could view anything is a massive monitor on the other side of this thing that they’re just all standing there and watching on the opposite side of Flagler. Everybody’s leaned up against the gate so you could stare almost vertically up to see the monitor. It’s nice.

Sevan Matossian (24:32):

Any chance that those bleachers could collapse? Like are you looking? It’s like, hey, that’s too many people in there.

Mattew Souza (24:36):

That’s, that’s funny that you mentioned that cuz I’m, I’m a little nervous. I don’t know what the capacity is, but <laugh>, they’re, they’re testing the tinsel straight. That’s for sure.

Sevan Matossian (24:45):

So you have thought that you’re like, fuck that place is bursting at the seams.

Mattew Souza (24:49):

I actually thought, what do I do? Do I, do I, do I just keep rolling or do I, do I set the camera down? I don’t know.

Sevan Matossian (24:55):

Yeah, keep rolling. There’ll be plenty of people to help if it goes down. Just roll.

Mattew Souza (24:59):

Just keep it framed up. Yeah, this place is back. I was with all the, uh, mayhem media earlier fucking out and they can’t even get in either. Like nobody could get in

Sevan Matossian (25:10):

Anywhere. Hey, why don’t you go, what I used to do is I used to just go in the tunnel with the athletes. Why don’t you go go walk in with them.

Mattew Souza (25:16):

Okay. So this area here where you guys call me, funnel ’em out and they come into here and then they go behind that gate and security blocks it. So once they go behind that gate, they have a second entrance, which is the tunnel.

Sevan Matossian (25:28):

Okay. Show ’em the Okay. Show me. Goes close as you can show me. I wanna see how close you can get.

Mattew Souza (25:34):

See him coming out here.

Sevan Matossian (25:36):

Oh, okay. Just slip in there. Go in there. You’re good.

Mattew Souza (25:43):

I don’t think so.

Sevan Matossian (25:45):

Yeah, you’re totally good. Good.

Mattew Souza (25:50):

Bottom sleeping

Sevan Matossian (25:52):

<laugh>. Send in your money for Suza. I am crushing it. Watching extensive, uh, coverage. You sure are crushing

Mattew Souza (25:59):

It. That’s the tunnel. And then we’ll see. Wow. So before they had this whole thing buttoned off, but now that the athletes went back in there, it’s not as much.

Sevan Matossian (26:10):

Okay. Get closer to ’em. 2022 Suza would’ve gotten in. No, no, no. This is, let’s see, Suza. Okay,

Mattew Souza (26:20):

So that’s it right here. And then here’s the tunnel.

Sevan Matossian (26:22):

Dude, walk through.

Mattew Souza (26:23):

Get your bus right there. Yeah. Right.

Sevan Matossian (26:26):

I think the guys have started, by the way,

Mattew Souza (26:29):

They have, they all went through the, so when you go through those, that curtain that you guys could see there. Yeah. You’re on the competition floor. There is zero space between that and I don’t know if you guys could see there’s like two or three people that are standing there. That whole thing is, that’s the entrance. So when you walk out, if you go like, let’s say five feet past that curtain, I’d be standing on the competition floor. Thank you.

Sevan Matossian (26:51):

Hey, I don’t see a stream that has the men’s footage anymore, do you?

Taylor Self (26:55):

No, they’re, they’re not going. Um,

Mattew Souza (26:57):

We’re they’re announcing them out to the floor now. Yeah.

Taylor Self (27:00):


Sevan Matossian (27:00):

Uh, any, was there any announcement for the women? Did they announce the women’s winner on the floor?

Mattew Souza (27:07):

No. Not that I heard, but I think it was, it was Paige wasn’t it?

Taylor Self (27:11):

Yeah, she won. They’ll probably wait for the men to go then announce the female winners then after the female winners are now filling out the male

Mattew Souza (27:16):

Winners. Yeah, I’d say that’s a safe bet.

Sevan Matossian (27:18):

Okay. The female leaderboard is not updated. Yeah, they’re playing some weird, okay. Yeah, they have a closeup of the dumbbells now.

Mattew Souza (27:27):

Dumbbell bench prize. Some up. Get busy at the end

Sevan Matossian (27:31):

On that bike. Okay guys, uh, Taylor Self is going to tell you what you’re about to see after I tell you who the athletes are. Luke Parker, Samuel Pwn, Jack, Roma, gi, mal, harrows, Fabian, Benito, Alexander, Corone, tu, Magda, Roman, Koff, Bratkowski, Cole, gray, shaver, down, pepper, Brianon, Henrick, hap Line and Art. I can’t even get through ’em all. Fuck it. I tried, I tried. Uh, TJ Stanfield $50 sub on and Taylor love the coverage. Taylor, next time have a leather black couch for the streams. Uh, well, well said. Thank you tj. Great money. Okay, what are we looking at here? Uh, Mr. Taylor?

Taylor Self (28:05):

So at 3, 2, 1, go. These guys are gonna start off with a couplet of chest debar, pullups and dumbbell bench press. They’re gonna have 25 reps on the chest. Debar pullups 15 reps on the dumbbell bench. After they finish three rounds of the 25 pullups and the 15 bench, they’re gonna advance the Echo bike and they have 30 calories to finish off the workout. They’re gonna get a reset and at the 10 minute mark, they’re gonna start a four-time couplet of bar facing burpees, 30 reps and snatches with a 1 25 barbell. Again, 30 reps. The stipulation on the barbell is at the 30 reps have to be unbroken and every time you break, you get a three burpee penalty. So 30 far facing burp, 30 bar facing burpees. Pick up the barbell, you better go on broken. If you don’t, you’re gonna have a three burpee penalty for every break you get there on after

Sevan Matossian (28:55):

Basically a big bro sesh. I love it. Uh, TJ by the way, that’s crazy generous. I just wanna say thank you brother. Um,

Taylor Self (29:03):

Ricky’s. Ricky’s got a great bench. He’s ripping through ’em. Pat’s having a tough time. Roman’s doing okay, Nick. Matthew is flying on the bench and it doesn’t look like he’s locking his elbows out either.

Sevan Matossian (29:14):

Uh, meaning someone, uh, he needs a Andrew Hiller slap down.

Taylor Self (29:17):

Yeah. You see how straight his arm got there? Wait, wait. Look at his arms. Look at how

Sevan Matossian (29:21):

I’m already back to uh, I’m already back to uh, pull-ups. You gotta, you refresh. Refresh. Okay.

Taylor Self (29:26):

Oh, what the fuck? Why does my fucking stream do that?

Sevan Matossian (29:29):

Okay. And mine does it too. Every time you go away you need to refresh.

Taylor Self (29:32):


Sevan Matossian (29:34):

So Vena’s last off the bench.

Taylor Self (29:36):

Yep. Between these four gentlemen. Yep. Roman is back to his dumbbells. Ricky’s got five reps on the pull-up bar. Nick, Matthew is still on the pull-up bar. Vener is probably gonna go on broken on his chest bars. I would assume.

Sevan Matossian (29:50):

Uh, Matthew’s taken some deep, deep

Taylor Self (29:52):

Breaths. Nope, Vener still got some Chester bars to go watch Nick, Matthew on the bench. You’re gonna watch him lock out and start his first rep and look.
