    Sebastian Rivera On Heading Back to Jersey | Ep. 74

    Sebastian Rivera On Heading Back to Jersey | Ep. 74

    Last Week, Big 10 Champ Sebastian Rivera announced he was transferring to finish his college career at Rutgers. With Rivera coming back home to Jersey, I thought why not get him back on the podcast to hear a little bit more about the news. We talk about his time at Northwestern, the 141 field, wrestling in the RAC, Rutgers, MMA, and more!

    Seth Gross & JB Discuss 2020 World Championships Movement | Ep. 73

    Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! UWW, the governing body for wrestling, made it an interesting one as they announced dates for potential 2020 World Championships. My mind started rolling with initial thoughts so I grabbed Seth Gross and turned on the mics. These are just some initial, from the hip thoughts from a fan and a wrestler. Hope you enjoy this style of the episode!

Chris McSwiff ,

Amazing work!

Just recently came across this podcast and I must say that. The time, energy, and value put in every episode is worth the listen even if you don’t know that much about wrestling

Bryan Pflanz ,

Awesome podcast!

Started listening to this podcast within the last few months and it is becoming one of my favorite wrestling podcasts out there! That’s coming from someone who listens to just about every wrestling podcast there is. As a college wrestling coach, I appreciate the questions Justin asks and have learned a ton from some of his guests. Keep up the good work!

GoruckGarcia ,
