Mike Kanellis on His Road to the WWE, the Connection He Has With Edge, and His New Entrance Music

What’s up Hosers?! Welcome to another edition of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness. Today, we go in depth with one of the WWE’s newest superstars, Mike Kanellis! Mike took us through his entire professional career–the highs, the lows, and everything in between–and how the road he traveled down eventually led to his debut at WWE’s Money in the Bank PPV. Also, he did some singing with Edge and Christian, and touched on how, at one point, Edge’s Alter Bridge theme music became an integral part of his in-ring repertoire. All that, plus E&C talk Headlock on Hunger’s food drive, the continuing evolution of Jinder Mahal, the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match, and Christian looks up a few words on Google. Here we go!

Also, E&C remember some great times with Dusty Rhodes, discover a baby who laughs uncontrollably at “Here we go,” attempt to sing System of a Down’s “Chop Suey,” and give their final thoughts on the Stanley Cup Final. Here we go.

E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness – 26th May 2017

Anatomy of a Match: Shawn Michaels vs. Mankind From WWF’s In Your House: Mind Games

The wait is over! It’s time for the first ever ANATOMY OF A MATCH. Shawn Michaels and Mick Foley were gracious enough to join E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness to talk about their 1996 bout at WWF’s In Your House: Mind Games. They touched on not having wrestled each other before, why the title being on the line became a secondary storyline, and the move sequence that’s fooled wrestlers and fans alike, for years. It was great to hear two legends of wrestling talk about a match that, for the most part, flies under the radar and doesn’t always quite get the praise it deserves. Also, before catching up with Shawn and Mick, E&C jumped on the phone with this month’s fan contest winner, DJKNOWSKILLZ, commented on Jinder Mahal winning a title, and laughed about Shane McMahon Mock Mocking a picture of Tony Chimel on TV (shout out to the 5 Second Hosers for pointing that out). Ok, enough talk, enjoy the show. Here we go!

It’s a big one. Then, Jeremy Roenick joined the show to talk a little playoff hockey. THEN, Tommy Dreamer stopped by to deliver us some more Tales From the Indies, before the guys announced the winner of our May contest, in which we asked you, the fans, to name yourselves. And finally, E&C dug deep into the world of bad gimmicks, including some bad ones that they had over the years. Tons of announcements, a couple of guests, and tons of gimmicks. Here we go.
