NerdReality ,

Wonderful

This is the only podcast I keep up with every week. The dynamic between Rob and Jeff is hilarious. Most wrestling podcasts have become overwhelming negative but STR has a good balance. I usually save it for a commute and it does not disappoint.

Edited in 2021: it’s ok. They have bad takes though. I kid.

Dr. Nov to the rescue!

Jeff, thank you for the phenomenal upgrade in co-hosts! You two are the only reasons to waste a second on RAW.
