E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness – 2nd February 2018

NXT’s Johnny Gargano!

What’s up, Hosers?

Welcome to another Pod of Awesomeness.

On this week’s show, we have none other than…

JOHN-NY WREST-LING (CLAPCLAP–CLAPCLAPCLAP)! Johnny Gargano sat down with the Rocket Strappers to talk about how he fell in love with wrestling, whether he prefers life as a singles or tag team wrestler, and his incredible match with Andrade Cien Almas, at the most recent NXT Takeover. Also, E&C came up with a new Gargano-based metric for rating matches, and helped Johnny with some new t-shirt slogans.

And before the interview–OOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHH IT WAS A BIG INTRO BROTHER BROTHER–Edge and Birdman covered both Royal Rumbles and NXT Takeover, while fighting through multiple cameos from Christian’s landline phone.

The Savior of Misbehavior, RAW and SmackDown Commentator, Corey Graves

What’s up, Hosers?!

Welcome to another Pod of Awesomeness.

This week, The Rocket Strappers sat down with the busiest man in professional wrestling. The Savior of Misbehavior, RAW and SmackDown’s commentator, and quite possibly the voice of a generation, Corey Graves. Among the topics discussed were fatherhood, what it was like transitioning from in-ring performer to commentator, and how he handles the urge to go to the bathroom during a broadcast.

Also, Edge is back in Ireland, Christian talks RAW 25, and E&C recall a game they used to play with Stone Cold Steve Austin.

E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness – 19th January 2018

The Animal, Batista!

What’s up, Hosers?!

This week on E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness, we have the man who was supposed to come on the show last week (technical difficulties), the inspiration behind The Ballad of Little Dave Batista….Batista!

E&C kicked things off by playing his anthem, of course (sung by Brian Gewirtz), before talking everything from his last run in the WWE, to landing Guardians of the Galaxy and his love of selling in the ring. Also, in case you were wondering, yes, Christian sort of messed up Batista’s house–not as bad as Samoa Joe’s, but enough.

Plus, The Strappers discussed some new WWE signees that they’re excited about, Beth had a crazy time traveling to the Mixed Match Challenge, and Christian explained In-N-Out’s “Animal Style” to Edge.


Hey, Hosers…


E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness – 12th January 2018

A Gigantic Q&A Featuring Beth Phoenix (And the First Ever Audio Mock Mock!)

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

This week, we sat down and cracked open all of your internet letters, better known as tweets, for a Q&A. First, the Phoenixed One answered a few questions, before the Rocket Strappers went on a question-answering rampage of their own. The result? A ton of great stories, a hypothetical WrestleMania card, and the revelation that Christian will not, under any circumstances, wear shorts.

Oh, also, we had the first EVER audio mock mock, an audio run-in, and The Rocket Strappers shared their thoughts on Jericho-Omega.

It was a fun one, folks. HERE WE GO.

E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness – 5th January 2018

How Technology and Social Media Have Impacted Professional Wrestling w/ Hurricane Helms and TOMMAYY

What’s up, Hosers?!

Welcome to another edition of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness. Oh, and Happy New Year! Welcome to 2018 brother, brother.

On today’s show, the Strappers start off by talking about the new year–how they’re feeling, a prediction or two, and how they can take Rocket Strapping to an even higher level.

Then, it was time to catch up with Tommmmmay #TommyTwitch, regarding his latest Tales From the Indies, and he did not disappoint. I won’t ruin anything, I’ll just say these two words–ceiling dandruff. Tommy also talked House of Hardcore on Twitch, and about an upcoming Summer tour.

And finally, Sir Thomas agreed to stick around to talk tech and social media within wrestling, with E, C, and The Hurricane!

From wrestling magazines and tape trading, to Twitter handles and streaming networks, the industry has gone through a huge transformation. The group talked about the pros and cons, how they adjusted to the change as it was happening, and the wrestlers who have wisely used today’s tech and social tools to their advantage.

Enjoy, Hosers.


E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness – 29th December 2017

The Alpha Female, Jazzy Gabert, Shares Her Inspiring Story and Talks About Her Current Status with WWE

What’s up, Hosers?!

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

This week, The Rocket Strappers took the pod international, speaking with The Alpha Female, Germany’s Jazzy Gabert. You may remember Jazzy from the The Mae Young Classic, where she was excellent, but the story behind what it took for her to reach that point in her career could be made into a movie. A tumultuous childhood, scratching and clawing to get trained as a wrestler, a stint in TNA, MMA fights–It’s incredible. That said, Jazzy also talked a bit about the Women’s Royal Rumble and her current status with the WWE.

Plus, before the interview, Birdman and Edge covered Christmas, the Usos’ “mind pictures,” and Rusev Day.


Hey, Hosers…


E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness – 22nd December 2017

The Singh Brothers and Beth Phoenix Weighs in on the First Ever Women’s Royal Rumble

What’s up, Ho Ho Hosers?

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

This week the Rocket Strappers spoke with the Singh Brothers, who detailed the incredible, inspiring journey that led them to the WWE. These guys personify the word resilience. Also, the Singhs reminisced about the time they took Edge hiking to pick his brain, and Christian cooked up an alternative gimmick for them, in case they wind up needing it down the road.

Before talking to the Singhs, though, E&C answered a few fan questions and caught up with Beth Phoenix, who shared her thoughts on the upcoming women’s Royal Rumble!

Happy Holidays, Hosers……HERE WE GO!

E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness – 15th December 2017

Celebrating the 10-Year Anniversary of The Edgeheads with Curt Hawkins (and Zack Ryder Too, Kind of)

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

This week, the Rocket Strappers are in the same room once again, at Edge’s house in North Carolina, before the Birdman migrates south for the holidays. They kicked things off by talking about the WWE’s upcoming mixed-tag tournament, before revealing that this episode of the pod was going to be dedicated to the 10 year anniversary of…The Edgeheads.

After unsuccessfully trying to get Ryder on the phone, Hawkins called in to reminisce about being one half of the Edgeheads–how the gimmick got started; how he and Ryder picked the names they’ve carried into present day; what it was like being such a prominent part of a Wrestlemania match, at such a young age; and the one time that Edge actually got hot at them.

Edge, Christian, and Curt also talked Zack Ryder–his wrestling figure collection and how blown up he was in his ECW match against The Bird–before calling to give him one last shot at being on the show.

This one, like all the ones, was a fun one, Hosers.

Long live The Edgeheads.


It’s the holiday season, Hosers! Give the gift of awesomeness, BUY A SHIRT HERE!!
