4 years later

Been listening to the show for 4 years now. The reviews about the ads are valid. However, for a WWF/E fan, this is gold.

I recently went back into the archive and my JBL speaker will simultaneously play the pod and the ppv event stream, making “watch alongs” 10 x better.

5 stars with a twist

I will give 5 stars because I binge all the old episodes but please just don't do a podcast if Paul has to take Conrad's spot. I'd rather just a mega episode or go back to listen to old classics. Anything but Paul

Great archive of classic shows

Used to be great— it’s not so good anymore since Bruce went back to the WWE. I don’t usually listen to the new episodes because I’ve been disappointed by the quality whenever I have. However, the archive of the first 100 or so shows is great. I often go back and listen to the episodes from 2016-2018. I can’t blame them for keeping the show going if sponsors keep paying them but the quality is definitely not what it used to be.
