I’m joined this week by new friend and awesome writer dude Andrew Johnson to talk about the importance of VHS cover art and the impact it can have on a child’s brain, and the crushing guilt that came from a private chat with one of his (and my) personal heroes
This episode also contains one of the scummiest stories about an ECW original, and make sure you listen to the end, because… I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news.

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.

Come with us, down the Steinerhole…

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.
