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.

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…

Man, what a week it’s been in wrestling, eh?! After everything that’s gone down, I needed someone who thinks about wrestling more intelligently than I do to bounce off of, so it was a delight to be joined by my friend, Taylor Meyers, who was in New Orleans this weekend, to help me through this strange week.
(Quick note: This episode was recorded before The Ultimate Warrior’s passing, so don’t expect it to come up, sorry.)

I’m over the moon to be joined this week by Brandon Stroud, of Best and Worst fame, who despite a crippling respiratory infection toughed it out to record two hours of quality wrestling chat.
This episode covers everything from using wrestling to cope with depression, to how growing up a wrestling fan was an asset during high school (eventually), to Inspire Pro Wrestling, and Brandon’s film Meet Me There starring the one and only Goldust!

Tom Holzerman, all around ace dude and big cheese over at The Wrestling Blog to talk about all sorts of wrestling goodness, including my firmly held belief that WrestleMania 2 – 8 exist solely to tell one epic story with Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth.
We also get into the current controversy surrounding Mike Bennett and Beyond Wrestling, and surprise surprise, we jump at the opportunity to talk as much as possible about Chikara

Referring to WCW Worldwide as a “fansite” almost seems too small, it’s an indispensable archive of some of the greatest, funniest, weirdest, and perhaps best off forgotten WCW matches, magazines and memorablia. Behind it all is one Mr. Bryan Barrera who took the time to chat to me about the one time greatest force in all of professional wrestling, and what it was like to be literally the only person who watched The Fingerpoke of Doom live as it happened.

While many of you may know him better as Kayfabe, Kurtis Dros is the man behind the curtain at Drop Toehold, one of my favourite wrestling websites on the internet.
He joins me this week to talk about growing up during The Attitude Era not being a fan of wrestling, and what it was that swung him towards the light, as well as continuing success of New Japan, the ethical and financial cost of torrenting independent wrestling, and much more.

Twenty episodes! What a rush, as the Road Warriors would say. Thanks to everyone that’s joined me on this so far, both guests and listeners, and let’s crack on with another great episode.
This week I’m joined by one third of The Attitude Era Podcast, Mr. Kevin Mahon to talk all about growing up as a kid during the Era, what it’s like looking back it at it now, what are some of the forgotten gems and who are we maybe a bit too unnecessarily nostalgic over.
Continue reading Episode 20: Kevin Mahon
In perhaps the most informal and loose Have A Nice Day yet, I’m joined by one-half of Drop Toehold, and good friend, Heinekenrana who stops by for a chat that goes from the importance of wrestling that you can show to your children, to the darker side of wrestling fandom (AKA “The Shield” tag on Tumblr).
Listen in just to hear me get about as excitable as I ever get when we start to talk about the imminent debut of TNA’s Willow.
