Episode 398: Thumbquacks

The boys have a few big shows (wellllllll) coming up in the next few weeks, but before we get there, it’s one more stop on the wrestling road. First there’s plenty of buildup to Survivor Series, and there’s general disappointment over the “brand supremacy” battles. It didn’t help that Becky Lynch is injured and off the show. Plus, no one really cares about Shane McMahon, although Tony thinks Stephanie is…

Episode 390: Sam’s not Fired

Tony, Kevin, and Matt are back in Studio A, where Tony flubs the intro and gets mocked for his email writing skills.

Episode 383: Bazza and Tony, Ball Brothers

Tony takes his yearly trip to Spain, and that means one thing: it’s time for a show with your favorite bloke from London, Bazza Smith! Of course, what’s a live show at 6AM East without some discussion of what’s happening on the British wrestling scene? The saga of Sam Adonis and inappropriate comments sparks conversation about outrage and forgiveness. A story that is some six years old comes to light…

Episode 379: Silkin Stalkings

The boys are back to talk about huge news in the world of Ring of Honor, as they will debut at MSG during Mania weekend.

Bear Bronson, current CAP Champion, calls in to discuss…

Episode 370: Daisy Chain

It’s another action-packed episode of the Shining Wizards! The boys talk about All In and which talent brought the fans to the yard, a true sellout in about a half an hour. The Roman Reigns experiment has failed and is over, at least according to Tony. Kevin and Matt believe he’s in a better place moving down to a feud with Jinder.
