Episode notes

Adam Pranica officially joins the Nation of Conversation!

He’s the host of other amazing shows on the Maximum Fun Network, Like The Greatest Generation and Friendly Fire, but he also used to be a HUGE wrestling fan. It all started when he learned that his grandfather could very easily be mistaken for Ric Flair and blossomed from there.

Even though he’s lapsed as a fan over the years, he’s still got great memories of being huge fan when wrestling was at its zenith in pop culture; think back to the Nitro and Thunder days. Now, he’s ready to rekindle his fandom with Mike, Hal and Danielle!

The Beat Down

In this brand new segment, the panel takes a special look at each story beat of a significant wrestling saga and explains what made it so special.

For this first installment, in honor of his big win against Tetsuya Naito at Dominion, the team will examine Chris Jericho’s 2008 rivalry against Shawn Michaels. It led to tons of great matches, a brand new version of the Jericho character and was so great that Y2J has since called it the best story of his career.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford ,Mike Eagle and Adam Pranica

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
