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!!

Also, Edge informed Bayley that she’s Lyric’s favorite wrestler, and Bayley told the Rocket Strappers a story about what happened when she said “PFFFT HERE WE GO” in front of Michael Hayes.

Plus, Edge and Bird talk Woken Matt Hardy and ask the Hosers for fresh t-shirt ideas!

Dolph Ziggler Talks Past Gimmicks, Road Stories, and Getting Into Stand-Up Comedy

What’s up, Hosers?

Welcome to another edition of E&C’s POD OF AWESOMENESS

This week, The Rocket Strappers spoke with a man who strapped the rocket to himself, as he’s had one hell of a career in the WWE, The Showoff, Dolph Ziggler.

Ziggler talked with E&C about his amateur wrestling background, his early gimmicks within WWE, and his ascent to becoming WWE Champion. He also touched on his future, told some road stories, and described what it was like the first time he got on stage to do stand-up comedy (Christian gave Dolph a great opening line to use at future shows).

This was a fun episode, brother brothers. Enjoy.

Sinn Bodhi, Formerly WWE’s Kizarney, Talks Growing Up with E&C and His Bond with Jake “The Snake” Roberts

What’s up, Hosers? Welcome to another Pod of Awesomeness.

This week, E&C spoke with a man who knew them well before they were strapping rockets to people, Sinn Bodhi (formerly known as Kizarney in WWE). Bodhi, who first met the Rocket Strappers when he was simply known as “Nick,” reminisced about befriending E&C, their nicknames for one another, and his own journey within professional wrestling. He also spoke at length about the relationship he’s cultivated with Jake “The Snake” Roberts, and his wrestling fantasy camp, Fantasy Slam.

Also, before catching up with Sinn Bodhi, Birdman and Edge gave their thoughts on last Sunday’s Survivor Series and answered a few questions from the Hosers!

Happy belated Thanksgiving to all the American Hosers, and for the rest of you–hopefully you used yesterday as an excuse to eat a lot, even if it wasn’t officially a holiday where you are.


E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness – 17th November 2017

Debating the Mount Rushmores of Wrestling with TOMMAYY

What’s up Hosers?!

Welcome to another Pod of Awesomeness.

On this week’s show, E&C surprised Tommy, who was in his healing cave when they called, and asked for his help in figuring out (or trying to, at least) some of wrestling’s Mount Rushmores. And yes, it’s pluralized–Rushmores–because EC&T broke things down into categories. So, they debated the Mount Rushmore of…

The ’80s

The ’90s



Tag Teams




Entrance music

…just to name a few. Make sure to tell us who makes your Mount Rushmore for some of these categories, on Twitter, @EandCPod.

But before debating with Tommy, The Rocket Strappers talked Daniel Bryan’s Smackdown promo, what they’re looking forward to at this weekend’s Survivor Series, and Beth Phoenix quickly dropped in to say hi, via FaceTime!
