Best Wrestling Podcast

As a wrestling fan from the state of Iowa, this is absolutely the best wrestling coverage I could ask for! If you enjoy wrestling do yourself a favor and subscribe.

Jeremy Boffeli ,

The man

Cody is the man, plain and simple. This podcast covers Iowa wrestling in every facet of the sport from hs, collegiate, to international. If there’s an Iowa tie to it , Cody covers it. What I really enjoy about this podcast is that Cody breaks down matches. It’s not just this wrestler beat this wrestler …he talks about how they did so. In a world of podcasts this guy is a step above!

PhiSte ,

The objective.

The objective of each wrestler is to pin the opponent and establish own superiority without violence.

Cody’s podcast exceeds the objective
