This week, Chris has been Drawing quite a bit of Somethings, and Matt has been setting impossibly high standards with his stand-up comedy, making it impossible for anyone to follow him on the stage, but when Jarrett and LFC arrive, the conversation turns to all-wrestling, all the time — with a little bit about comics to meet our requirements.
The panel runs down the entire card for this year’s WrestleMania, talks about what it’s like to still be a fan of something even though you’re working with it, and even go into the nature of storytelling in stuff with muscular dudes in tights. It’s a good time, befitting the grandest stage of them all!
You can read The Legend of Ricky Thunder right here.
The card for this year’s WrestleMania isn’t even on the WrestleMania website, but at least it’s on Wikipedia.
If you’ve never seen a live wrestling show before, you could win this Chikara contest!
Witness the hilarity of Ebessan.
