Fun podcast

I like that the hosts don’t expect every listener to be the most hardcore wrestling fan ever—they seem to be having a lot of fun and in doing so, get the message across that there’s something in wrestling for every person to enjoy. Hope this podcast sticks around.

So sexy

Mat Elfring is a sexy piece of meat and he can talk me to sleep with his dulcet tones any day of the week.
