Answering A Ton Of Questions From The Hosers And The Return Of TOMMAYYYYY

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

This week, the Rocket Strappers decided to change into their finest Paul Smackage shirts, sit down somewhere comfortable, and take a ton of questions from you, the Hosers. Ohhhh there were a lot of good ones, brother brother.

Before that, though, E&C had an old friend on, a friend who they haven’t spoken with in a while, TOMMAYY (Tommy Twitch). Mr. Dreamer regaled the boys with some of his finest Tales From the Indies, while also talking about his love of Kohl’s jeggings, and going to the bathroom in his backyard.

Plus, Edge and Bird covered Edge’s new Instagram account, Bird’s cardio, and this year’s WWE Hall of Fame inductees.

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.

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.

HERE WE GO.

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.

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.

HERE WE GO.

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.

HERE WE GO.
