The internet’s NXT expert Brandon Stroud joins me again this week to talk all about WWE’s so-called minor leagues ahead of this week’s two-hour special, NXT Takeover.
Over the course of the episode, Brandon recounts the lost greatness that was NXT Redemption, we chat about how Triple H is the world’s biggest smark and I stumble upon the real reason why most NXT wrestlers seem to falter when called up to the big leagues.

With CHIKARA’s You Only Live Twice only days away, I was lucky enough to chat with “The Master of 1000 Holds” himself, Mike Quackenbush ahead of CHIKARA’s big comeback on May 25th. Over the course of the episode, we get into his commitment to storytelling, the relationship between CHIKARA and its fans, the necessity of accessibility and availability of wrestling content and… Scott Steiner?!

You Only Live Twice is only two weeks away, so I sat back down with previous guest Leonard F. Chikarason for an in-depth chat about his own thoughts and feeling on CHIKARA’s shut-down and ressurection, as well as the future of the promotion.

We’re breaking from format somewhat this week, and myself, Heinekenrana and Danielle Matheson sit down to talk about all things CHIKARA. We got a good bunch of listener questions, and while we don’t cover everything, there’s a lot here to get you ready for May 25th.
One word of warning, well two, this episode isn’t exactly as family friendly as CHIKARA is, so please be aware of that. Also, it gets kinda heavy when we start talking about the tragic loss of Larry Sweeney.

After last week’s surprisingly controversial episode, things have settled down a bit, but it doesn’t mean this week’s episode isn’t super exciting.
I chatted to Inspire Pro’s play-by-play man, Eamon Paton about the crossover from fan to professional, missing out on the “boom period” of wrestling by a few years, and of course, Inspire’s upcoming show, No Room To Die!

Over the past month, myself and comics artist extraordinaire Kyle Starks have dedicated ourselves to one goal: Discovering how Scott Steiner went from Michigan born good ol’ boy to The Big Bad Booty Daddy.
Today, we recorded an hour and half long, special edition of Have A Nice Day and now you can all bear witness to our findings.
Come with us, down the Steinerhole…
