    Grabbing A Goldberger At The WCW Nitro Grill (With Mario Rivera)

    This week, Chris and Mat are joined by DualShockers' Mario Rivera for a riveting discussion of the WCW Nitro Grill, which was only open about a year and a half in Las Vegas. But what an amazing wonderland it was--and Mario actually went there! We also catch up with noted vampire warrior professional wrestler Gangrel with the return of Gangrel Watch. Lastly, the podcast gets hacked by none other than the Smackdown Hacker. You only thought it was Mustafa Ali. All that plus we answer your questions!

TV Guide's Keisha Hatchett is back to talk about wrestler appearances on Boy Meets World and, of course, there are plenty of tangents. We also welcome AEW's very own "Concrete Rose," Sonny Kiss to talk about AEW Dynamite's anniversary, wrestling Cody Rhodes, and horror video games. All that, plus we answer your questions!

    WWE Niagara Falls: A Thing You Didn't Know Existed Until Right Now

    WWE Niagara Falls: A Thing You Didn't Know Existed Until Right Now

    This week on Wrestle Buddies, Mat and Chris are obsessing over another of WWE's non-wrestling business ventures. Once upon a time, the company had its own tourist trap at Niagara Falls in Canada! How did this happen? What went on there? Why did it have a thrill ride called the Pile Driver? We get to the bottom of it. The Buddies also look back on Ultimate Warrior's truly puzzling appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show and learn that we're supposed to call him UW.

    This week on Wrestle Buddies, Mat and Chris welcome All Elite Wrestling star and executive vice president Kenny Omega to the show. There's all kinds of stuff we need to talk about with Omega, including AEW's new line of action figures, the status of their video game, and what it will take to get everyone's favorite blow up doll wrestler signed by the company. Then, That Thom Clancy Show host Thom Clancy gets on the soapbox for two minutes of whatever he wants to talk about (plus a bunch more minutes to keep talking about it).

    WWE 2K Battlegrounds (With WWE's Tyler Breeze)

    This week on Wrestle Buddies, Mat and Chris are obsessed with WWE 2K Battlegrounds, the newest wrestling video game. It's not perfect, but it's weird and fun, so get ready for our thoughts on the followup to WWE 2K20. We also welcome NXT Tag Team Champion (and reigning Left Right Left Right Champion) Tyler Breeze to the show to talk about winning his first title in WWE, Breezango's crazy costumes, playing video games, and so much more.

    Who Was Really Behind GTV? (With Impact's Brian Myers)

    This week on Wrestle Buddies, GameSpot's professional wrestling podcast, Mat Elfring and Chris E. Hayner welcome Impact Wrestling star Brian Myers to talk wrestling action figures, his podcast empire, and what he wants to accomplish in Impact. We also wonder how he handles watching Matt Cardona scream his way through a Figure Wrestling Federation podcast every single week. Additionally, Mat and Chris also look into the twisted history of GTV in late-'90s WWF for the latest installment of Unsolved Wrestling Mysteries.
