5 CINCO! 5 CINCO! 5 CINCO!

Amazing episode that shed light into the past an present battles Matt and Jon both face. Matt has been my favorite wrestler since I was a kid and to get a look into his life and mind was incredibly interesting. Love hearing back stories and little details i never knew as well. Growing up without much internet presence, I never knew much about the injuries or real life struggles that were faced. Was a pleasure to meet Matt an Jeff in Albany NY this year, thank you guys for everything!
