Renee Young and Catching Up (In-Person!) with TOMMMAY

What’s up, Hosers?!

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

The Strappers are in the midst of filming season two of the E&C Show ,for WWE Network, but took some time this week to talk with fellow Canadian and WWE personality, Renee Young. Renee spoke about how she got her job with WWE, living in Vegas, Talking Smack, and her run-in with Jerry O’Connell.

But before catching up with Renee, E&C got to speak, in-person, with the one, the only, TOMMAAAAAYYYYYY. Tommy talked about people yelling TOMMAY at shows, shared his theory on selfies, and, at one point, got punched in the stomach by Jay.

Oh, and also, FLIP SUNSET IS BACK, BROTHER.

OHHHHH IT’S TIME FOR A BIG Q&A BROTHER BROTHER

Breezango!

What’s up, Hosers?! Welcome to another edition of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness.

On this week’s show, we have one of RAW’s newest tag teams, Tyler Breeze and Fandango–Breezango!

Breezy and Dango talked about their transition to RAW and the challenge of being serious in the ring as funny characters, before covering their respective backstories as singles wrestlers. Also, Christian and Breeze started the pod off by remembering the time fantasy hockey almost derailed their friendship.

All that, plus the Strappers recapped Mock Mock Mania, and talked a little NHL playoff hockey.

But most importantly, E&C kicked things off with a tribute to the legendary Bruno Sammartino, who passed away earlier this week. Our thoughts are with all of Bruno’s loved ones.

Here we go.




E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness – 13th April 2018

Newly Crowned NXT Champion, Aleister Black!

What’s up, Hosers?

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

It’s the pod after WrestleMania, which is just as exciting as the Raw after WrestleMania, but with a few less surprises. The Strappers talked about their week in New Orleans, from shooting a new season of The E&C Show to inducting the Dudleyz into the HOF, and taking in WrestleMania in person–it was a busy one.

And don’t worry, they didn’t forget about the incredible NXT Takeover that went down the Saturday before Mania. Bird and Edge gave their thoughts on that show as well, before talking with NXT’s newest champ, Aleister Black.

Aleister talked about who he’d love to face in NXT, the journey that led him to the WWE, his constant desire to work harder, and how he’s acclimated to living in the U.S.

It was a great conversation. Enjoy, Hosers.

Stone Cold Steve Austin and Bret Hart Breakdown Their WrestleMania 13 Submission Match in Our Latest “Anatomy of a Match”

What’s up, Hosers?!

Welcome to a very special, once in a lifetime edition of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness.

First things first, it’s our one-year anniversary! And what a year it’s been–Rocket Strapping, Paul Smackage, incredible guests, and TOMMAY! Thanks for all the support, and here’s to year two.

But before starting a new year of the show, we had to celebrate year one with our second ever “Anatomy of a Match.”

Stone Cold. Bret Hart. WrestleMania 13.

These legends joined the pod together to take us through the entire experience–the in-ring psychology, the double heel-face turn, making the decision to get color, the importance of Ken Shamrock, and the bloody sharpshooter that capped everything off.

It was truly a wrestling master class from two of the best to ever lace up the boots.

And before talking to Bret and Steve, the Strappers shared their thoughts on hitting the one-year mark, Daniel Bryan’s return, and The Ultimate Deletion.

HERE WE GO!

We’ve got new shirts! Check them out HERE.
