Season two is here, Chico! We're kicking things off by talking about the minimalistic masterpiece that is the Shawn Michaels vs Razor Ramon ladder match from Wrestlemania X to determine who is the undisputed Intercontinental Champion. It's Bad Guy vs Sexy Boy for all the mid-card marbles.
Joining your boys this week to break down all the action is Regular Show storyboard artist and creator of the comic Three Word Phrase, Ryan Pequin!

In this week's off-season episode, your pod boys (Joaquin, Frank, Charlie and Producer Tom) kick things off with a discussion of the best and worst performances by professional wrestlers in movies. Then, the hat comes out for yet another game. This time, your boys pull out names of bands and discuss who that band should record an entrance theme for. If you've ever wanted to know which wrestler would be perfect coming to the ring with a Bonnie Tyler song, then this is the pod for you!

It's another mini episode for you on this beautiful Thursday morning! This time, your boys are getting in the weeds about one of the most basic offensive maneuvers in wrestling: The Dropkick. Who invented it? Who does it best? What's a "Jewish Tarzan"? All of these questions answered, and more!
