Episode 9: Gimme Sexual Chocolate!!

Francis Adu, Jr. checks in this week to talk about all the important issues, like the ongoing beef between Dave Meltzer and TNA Wrestling. After that opening salvo, we go into an extensive conversation about Chikara, from its family-friendliness through the return of Jigsaw to the seemingly continuous narrative into the stories of both UltraMantis Black and Mr. Touchdown. We also touch on the slowness of the narrative in 2015 into its epic payoff. We then get into our requisite chat about The Cruiserweight Classic, which morphed into a discussion on Tommaso Ciampa's "bigness" compared to the other cruisers. Then, it's all about celebrity wrestling fans before getting into bad fans and whether they represent the whole or not. We talk about the early days of Gabe Sapolsky's post-Ring of Honor ventures, a lengthy discussion about the evolution of wrestling and finishes, and Twitter questions before I end admitting an embarrassing music purchase.
