Great show

Great show

Kayfabe2001 ,

The boys cure my mood!

The only way this show could be better is if it were produced in Japan so I can give it seven stars! Pete and Keith join up to look back on old wrestling, plus the occasional movie here or there. I highly recommend GFA Live to anybody!

My favorite Podcast

I’ve listened to other rustling podcasts and nothing cures any mood better than GFA Live. The boys bring me out of the deepest places sometimes, for that even the Meltzer rating of today would go 5 stars! They are the best!
