These two guys are awesome
A few good guesses
I completely understand Zarian had a couple “scoops” knowing the dates and locations of Summerslam and maybe one other pay per view. Big freakin deal.
The guy now talks like he walks on water. “Yeah I heard that too” about every news headline. Complete snake oil salesman. Plus, during his own show, constantly talking about how he has to leave and hang with his executive friends. Unlikable tool bag.
Rich rocks though.
Game show Host
That’s a is a podcast where Andrew makes educated guesses, tails on other websites news and says that “oh yeah, I heard that too” to make it seem like he knew it first…then this is your podcast
