Love your show

I can’t believe it took me so long to start listening to you guys. I love your show. Mike and The Kingpin have such great chemistry. The promo about nothing is a great way to end the show. Keep them coming guys!

You had me at the Seinfeld quotes in the intro

Saw on Twitter that Josh Briggs was on your podcast so thought I'd give it a go. I clealry set my expectations way too low. Great show, informative, entertaining, top guest. Consider me a subscriber. Great job guys!

A Great Listen

To catch up with all the latest in the pro wrestling world and to hear a great back and forth with a couple of awesome hosts you must tune into the show every time it gets uploaded. Mike and brian play well off each other and bring an old school mentality that gives those memories of the old days while keeping you front and center with the latest inside the squared circle.
