Alex Blandamer ,

The best wrestling podcast on the internet

I’d much rather be listening to this than doing countless forward rolls in front of a webcam in a Enfield industry estate.

Not Afraid to Say Their Opinion

Love this podcast, not afraid to not discuss the big issues across wrestling both in the US and the UK. The lads clearly have a passion for the pseudo-sport we all love. If you’re looking for a podcast that sugar coats the state of wrestling, this isn’t it. Opinions are forthcoming and whilst I don’t always agree with them, can’t fault the enthusiasm. Also always welcome when an EastEnders reference makes an appearance.

Perfect

Love it. Never ones to worry about saying what they think. Brilliant.
