This week, the team is joined by Brian Brushwood! He’s a magician, comedian and host of the podcast Night Attack. And he also just happens to be a lapsed wrestling fan. Even though he still checks in with wrestling on occasion, he actually finds the stories behind the in-ring action to be even more fascinating than the TV product.
Mike and Danielle will bring Brian up to speed on some of the hottest stars and stories in wrestling today and what they think of them; that includes Braun Strowman turning heel and relying on others for victory after being such a capable monster on his own for a year, Becky Lynch’s new characteristics heading into Hell in a Cell and the amazing outfits from Alicia Fox.
¡Viva La Raza! This segment is devoted to the music of Latino Heat, Eddie Guerrero! He died much too soon, but he still had an incredible career and is widely regarded as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time.
We’ll hit all of his best tracks including LWO, the Radicalz, Latino Heat and more!
The Three Count
Brian put over David Shoemaker’s book The Squared Circle: Life, Death and Professional Wrestling.
Mike put over OVW, even though they have someone who may have one of the most insulting musical gimmicks of all time.
Danielle put over The New Day’s newest bit, Kramer Kingsman.
