    Slumping Grounds

    This week Jimmy’s back on the program & we’re talking everything from Stomping Grounds(begrudgingly) to SummerSlam(optimistically). Also, Alexa/Cross; why’s it happening & where’s it headed? Plus, Taker on Raw; why’s it happening & where that's headed as well. Furthermore, yet continued #FireflyFunhouse discussion. But then, tracking that hidden gem's become a new staple of this podcast. LOL. Rate, review, share, subscribe… if you want to. And mainly enjoy!

These guys... oh man... these guys....

Man! These guys!!! I just can't... oh man. I mean... these guys... these guys are the guys. You want to talk about 'Being The Guy?' or 'The Guy Behind The Guy?' or 'The Guy Behind The Guy Behind The Guy?' Pfffft. You go ahead and do that. I will be listening to these guys... Oh! Man oh man! These guys!!!!
These guys have forgotten more about pro-wrestling in the last twenty minutes than you can ever hope to know. And that isn't due to a degenerative brain disease (if it is, I offer sincere apologies). It's because their brains contain so much wrestling knowledge that they have to release older, useless knowledge into the atmosphere in order to retain the GigaBytes worth of new wrestling knowledge they scoop up. Sometimes I try to linger in places they have been in order to gain more wrestling knowledge via imaginary osmosis.
Regardless of their wrestling minds, their show is entertaining, informative, and the perfect companion to your pro-wrestling viewing experience. Somehow they find the time to cover every show airing throughout the week and every payperview with a preview and a review.
These guys... ay de mi!!! These guys ARE the IWC.

Fresh Perspectives

I listen to a lot of wrestling and non-wrestling podcasts and I love this show. Good flow, lots of joking, a must listen.
