On this week's off-season pod Frank, Joaquin, Chuck and Tom gather together to discuss the subtle art of tag team finishers. They talk favorites, least favorites and why Tom hates the triple powerbomb.

Then, your pod boys use Frank‚Äôs WWE trading cards to book the unlikeliest of world champions and accidentally chart the rise to power of the newest and most dominant stable in professional wrestling. 

Remember, the off-season is nearly over so be sure to send in match suggestions for your boys to watch for season 3 via twitter @TIAPOD or e-mail at thisisawesomepod@gmail.com

On this week's off-season joint join your boys Frank, Charlie and Tom as they rap about the highs and lows of every smark's favorite hour of wrestling - NXT. They talk about the peaks and valleys of the show's history and try to figure out whether or not the brand has already peaked.

THEN, your boys head over to good ole metro lyrics dot com and do some deep-dive-and-analysis on the lyrics to Randy Orton's "Voices." Crack a Croix and join us, won't you?

In this week's very special episode of the TIA off-season, Tom asks your boys Frank & Chuck whether or not there is a place in the sports entertainment landscape for youth wrestling. Would a kids division ever work on a national brand? Could it be an organized performance/athletic event at the high school or college level? Would it be any more dangerous than cheerleading or playing football? 

Then, Frank challenges Tom and Chuck to go head to head in his Finishing Move Name Game. The stakes couldn't be higher as the loser ends up with an agonizing homework assignment.

Remember, if you have match suggestions for us to watch for Season 3 hit us up @TIAPOD on twitter or e-mail us at thisisawesomepod.com
