Pro wrestler "The Kingpin" Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett have so many overlooked talents to put over that we had to go back for more! It all started two episodes ago with Hidden Gems Part 1, and now we're continuing our quest to expose the most underappreciated names in the region - and one of New England's most prominent figures, Brian Fury (@xbrianxfuryx), joins us to offer his own picks. Hear all about a good-looking Doink, a forgotten female, the guy with red hair, plus how to avoid Shawn Michaels and more!
Also this week, yeeessss, a Promo About Nothing, boyyyy, Hanson houses the dessert table and Milonas lives with Michael Jackson!
Pro wrestler "The Kingpin" Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett checked this week's Twitter poll (@TheWPAN) and the topic of the day is Weirdest Wrestling Venues!

Pro wrestler "The Kingpin" Brian Milonas is in Philadelphia for Ring Of Honor Wrestling, and he's taking the microphone with him! Referee Mike Crockett sets the table from home, but Brian takes the reigns and talks with his ROH tag team partner, the Beer City Bruiser (@bcbwinchester) about their current run - the opportunities they've gotten and the people they've worked with. Plus, they discuss the vibe in the ROH locker room, their wish for next April's Madison Square Garden show and the Hall Of Famer who is their biggest supporter. After schmoozing with the Bruiser, Brian tracks down ROH stalwarts and past WPAN guests Todd Sinclair and Bobby Cruise as well - and look out for random Ring Of Honor wrestler run-ins!
Also in this episode, let me tell you something about this Promo About Nothing, Bobby proposes a new format and WE HAVE A WINNER of last week's Today vs. Yesterday argument!
