Welcome to another edition of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness.

This week, after the Birdman got tapped by Shawn Michaels (no big deal) to cover some of his classes at the Performance Center, the Strappers were able to speak with one of Christian’s students–Adam Cole BAY BAY! Among a variety of topics, Cole covered the moment he fell in love with pro wrestling, his gift for cutting a great promo, and becoming the inaugural NXT North American Champion during a six-man ladder match.

Also E&C reviewed Hell in a Cell, and caught up with the creator of Headlocked comics, Mike Kingston.

The episode is jam-packed this week, brother brothers. HERE WE GO.

Tales From the Indies with Tommy, and Answering Your Twitter Questions!

What’s up, Marks?!

Welcome to another edition of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness.

This week, Edge, fresh off a plane and jet lagged, asked Christian to steer the ship. So what did the Birdman cook up? An episode that featured Tales From the Indies with TOMMAYYY, and a bunch of Twitter questions from the Hosers.

Lots of questions were answered throughout the show, like…

Why did Tommy take so long to call in?

Did E&C execute bloodbaths on their own?

And who would the guys have had as a manager, if they were able to pick a celebrity?

All that, plus a promo from Paul Smackage and a brief cameo from Betty Phoenix.

HERE WE GO.

What’s up, Hosers?!

Welcome to another edition of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness.

This week’s show has been a long time in the making, as our guest is a woman the Strappers have promised to have on, for a long time. She’s fresh off of a great match at ALL IN, and voluntarily puts up with Zack Ryder on a daily basis–it’s Chelsea Green!

In addition to talking ALL IN, E&C and Chelsea covered a ton, from her start at Lance Storm’s wrestling school to Tough Enough, and her in-ring WWE promo with Daniel Bryan….plus a bunch more. It was a great chat.

Oh, and we also found out that Zack Ryder is a big cat guy now! So, there’s that.

Enjoy, Hosers. HERE WE GO.

205 Live GM, Drake Maverick

What’s up, Hosers?!

Welcome to another edition of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness.

This week, The Strappers de Rocket spoke to the GM of WWE’s 205 Live, Drake Maverick. Drake spoke about his current role, appreciating the opportunities he’s received within the business, and staying in shape, should there come a time when he’s wrestling again. He also explained his old moniker, Rockstar Spud, and the impact that one undersized ECW/WWE vet had on his aspiration of wrestling professionally.

Also, Christian forgot his kit so he had to do the show from his phone, and the guys tell some great Owen Hart rib stories.

HERE WE GO!

E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness -17th August 2018

Mauro Ranallo! Plus, Previews of NXT Takeover and Summerslam

What’s up, Hosers?!

Welcome to another edition of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness.

This week, the Strappers caught up with a fellow Canadian, and a man whose passion for the wrestling business is both immense and contagious, NXT announcer Mauro Ranallo. Mauro talked through some of the matches we’ll be seeing this weekend at Takeover and Summerslam, before explaining why, in the age of social media and short attention spans, the Gargano-Ciampa feud is so special.

The trio also covered Ranallo’s lengthy resume, which includes time as the voice of Pride, Bellator, Showtime Boxing, and WWE’s Smackdown. It was a great chat.

Plus, E&C remembered their own Summerslam experiences and paid tribute to Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, who we lost earlier this week.

Rest in Power, Anvil.




E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness – 10th August 2018

NXT’s Ricochet, Tommmaaaayyyy, and Lenny Dykstra

What’s up, Hosers?!

Welcome to another edition of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness.

This week, the Strappers welcomed one of the most athletic and acrobatic wrestlers on earth, NXT’s Ricochet. Ricochet talked about his love of NXT and debuting in a ladder match, getting to pick the brain of Shawn Michaels on a regular basis, and the unique nature of working on Lucha Underground.

And before talking with Ricochet, E&C gave Tommayyy a call to hear about his latest Tales From the Indies. Here’s the thing, though–Tommayy wasn’t alone. Halfway through the call he tagged in a surprise guest, one of the most infamous players in MLB history and a man whose nickname mirrors that of a 90s WWF wrestler, Lenny Dykstra (AKA Nails). Yes, I’ll say it again; Tommay and Lenny Dykstra joined the show together. It was pretty unbelievable.

Also, Edge talks about Betty Phoenix calling The Mae Young classic with Renee Young and Michael Cole and, as promised, Flip Sunset shows up to cut a promo.

HERE WE GO!

One Half of the Bludgeon Brothers, Luke Harper

What’s up, Hosers?!

Welcome to another edition of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness.

This week, the Strappers were joined by a man who is not only one half of the Bludgeon Brothers, but also a member of Christian’s fantasy hockey league, Luke Harper!

Luke talked about making the assumption that the WWE wouldn’t sign him (and how he reacted when they did), his run with the Wyatt family, building chemistry with Rowan, and his aspiration of one day becoming WWE champion.

Also, E&C weighed in on whether it’s time for a women’s tag division, and remembered the lives of Brian Christopher, Nikolai Volkoff, and Brickhouse Brown.
