No more Paul

Paul is “channel changer jones” for me. I’ve already unsubscribed from the Kurt Angle Show and the Arn Show because of how often he hosts. Whether Conrad likes it or not he is just as much the reason I listen as the boys are.

Truth Teller

There is a lot of info that most wouldn’t understand about the wrestling and TV before they listened to this. Puts the Monday Night Wars into perspective. The best reason to listen to this is to hear Eric embarrass dirt sheet writers like Dave Meltzer.

Best Wrestling Podcast

When I first got into this podcast my fandom was hitting the back burner. This podcast revitalized my fandom. Reliving these events as an adult has been an amazing nostalgia trip. Being 5-11 years old during the start of Nitro and the end of WCW and now have a different perspective on the business. Thank you Conrad and Eric
