We had the pleasure of speaking to the legendary Magnum T.A. for well over an hour and decided to dedicate the entire episode to him. We talk Starrcast, All In, Cody, Tessa, his views on the psychology and artistry of professional wrestling, and so much more! How much of an influence was Bruce Lee? Did Magnum ever want to wrestle in Japan? How does he feel about blood in wrestling?
We did our best to ask questions we'd never heard him answer before. It was an incredible experience and couldn't have been possible without Dave Hancock, Conrad Thompson, and the whole Starrcast crew!
Make sure you follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube for tons of Starrcast coverage and more!
Paul & Sam have to resort to take 2 as a technical SNAFU results in the loss of Paul's half of the audio. But you're in for a fun time as the guys preview the big matches announced for Destruction & Fighting Spirit Unleashed! Plus we address the PAC (Neville) situation, potential King of Pro Wrestling matches, and, of course, some Wrestle Kingdom 13 debate! But it doesn't end there, oh no! We talk about our Starrcast plans, announce another super cool giveaway, go in depth about our new logo, and give a full preview of All In!
But wait, there's more! Paul headed down to Back Breakers Training Center to sit down with Justyn Glory, trainer & veteran independent wrestler, and recent grad & current BBTC champ, Aaron Roxas for a pair of great interviews that touch on what All In and Starrcast mean to independent wrestling, as well as the upcoming FITE tv taping and documentary series on the BBTC!

It's an epic episode as we drop an announcement for Starrcast! In addition to the scheduled G1 Post-Mortem, we've got an interview with Todd Joerchel from Filsinger Games. We spens some time chatting about the history of the company, the different game lines, ways to play, and even chat a little wrestling.
Then we've got our big post-mortem coverage of G1 CLIMAX 28. We go over our favorite matches for each competitor, our MVP, our Match of the Tournament, our Top 5, & answer some big questions left in the aftermath.
We know it's a long one, but we had such a good time talking with Todd, we wanted to share the whole interview. After the interview & post-mortem, Paul and I got lost in some chatting and reminiscing that we decided to share as well.
As always, special shout out to the Hails for our awesome intro and outro music!
