DRIVER JOHN B. ,

Eric calls out Vince.

For that alone Eric remains forever awesome. All things after that do not matter.

Donry Fetor ,

Another great pod!

Fantastic show! Love the era, love the behind the scenes look at the ‘business’ side of things

Messi3454 ,

Great chemistry

Conrad and Eric are just such a joy to listen to. They go over the greatest era of pro wrestling history with a fine toothed comb and the great, good, bad and terrible decisions made by Mr Bischoff at various times in WCW are all taken to task with both reverence and hilarity! Great rants and deep visits into the weeds of wrestling production. If you like the « business of the wrestling business » then this is your podcast!
