Jimmo Workman, a wrestling blogger & all-around good mate, joins The Smartest Man Not In Professional Wrestling for a scholarly discussion. They hit on multiple topics including the sad state of affairs in WWE and the gradual decline of wrestling in general. Did it happen overnight? Or was it a long time coming? And what was the cause of it all? Find the answers here!
Handsome Dan explains his recent social media post suggesting that the New Day’s success is WWE’s way of covering for the Hulk Hogan racist scandal. Also, a major announcement concerning Lucha Underground. You don’t want to miss this episode!
With no topics, Mike, Adam, Cal and Sydney open up to the listeners by answering questions that you never knew you wanted answered. After a game of MASH to display the eerie accuracy of the game to Adam, they answer questions such as: Would you rather spoon with Hogan or Macho Man for a night? For a MILLION dollars: Would you go on a heroin binge for a week? Would you prostitute yourself for a week? Thank you to ALL of our listeners, and we can only hope for 100 more.

Handsome Dan examines the question “What if the WWF in 1997 relied on older stars as heavily as WWE in 2015 does?” There’s a high and unfortunate price being paid for the nostalgia pop. Leave your elementary arguments at the door. It’s time to raise your IQ!
