Informative and Entertaining

Conrad and Eric will ALWAYS take you “DEEP into the weeds” of the business of Pro Wrestling!! They not only inform you of the “Ins and Outs” of the business past; they give their takes on the current happenings as well!!! Always entertaining and enlightening myself with fresh perspective!!! This and Tony Schiavone’s podcast (What Happened When) are my two favorites!!! Thank You Conrad and Eric!!! May this last FOREVER!!
