Wanted to hate as a wrestler. But he’s one of my favorites. Genius. Funny, witty, athletic as heck. Tells a great story. Music what a joke! (Wrong again!) Judas is my favorite song fozzy rocks! One of these years I hope to go on the Rock rager wrestling cruise. I’m saving! Looks like awesome time!
Loved Lance storm episode
I really enjoyed Lance Storm breaking down your Title vs Mask match against Juventud. I’d be really interested in a podcast of him doing this with other veterans to hear their responses of his analysis to past matches. It be cool take hear analysis from segments of a career to see how a particular may have evolved in terms of in ring psychology.
Been listing to Jericho for a minute. Love the variety of guests and topics he’s covers
