More Casio Kid

That’s the review. More Casio Kid. A lot of fun with the latest episode. Eric was on.

WCW Guy

Being a WCW guy, I really enjoy hearing those stories. Mixing in some TNA and WWE stuff keeps it entertaining. Listening to Easy E and Conrad “argue” over a point that one misunderstood is hilarious. Keep up the great work.

Sam the Met ,

Great listen and so many memories

Eric and Conrad are two legends in wrestling. The podcast is so insightful and brings back so many memories of great times. You have to listen each week to hear these stories and some thoughts on present day. Eric needs to be praised for everything he’s done.
