The Dream Team of Wrestling Figure Collecting

This is a fun, easygoing, and enjoyable podcast to listen to. WWE superstars Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins take you back to your childhood (and current adulthood if we’re being honest) by discussing one of every wrestling fans greatest hobbies: Collecting the figures. They talk about retro stuff, the new Mattel lines, as well as their own stories being involved in the hobby. As someone who works in a machine shop that lets us have earbuds and listening devices, podcasts are a must, and this is one of the most entertaining I’ve listened to. I find myself laughing out loud and having to explain (plug) the podcast to my coworkers, who have also tuned in and even though some of them don’t even care for wrestling in general, have found it being very enjoyable to listen to. From just some guy who listens to podcasts for 10 hours a day, I can’t recommend it enough.

Best podcast across all genres

I have listened to this podcast since day one. Having never been a collector of any type of figure I wasn’t sure why. Fast forward to today and I’m working on a complete all figure Lex Luger collection. This podcast is by far the most entertaining and enjoyable podcast of all 20 podcasts that I listen to weekly. It’s not just about figs, it’s about two men who have started a figure renaissance. The joy I get out of listening every week cannot even be put into words. Everyone on this planet, no in the known universe, should be listening.

Fun for adult collectors

This is hands down the best wrestling figure (collectors) podcast out there!

I have not won anything yet, but I am still proud to be in their Patreon FB group. I have met a lot of awesome people because of this podcast.

Thank you guys for the best, most expensive free podcast and creating a community!
