Wrestlefolks #82: MONSTER TRUCK MADNESS (w/Leonard F. Chikarason)


Leonard F. Chikarason returns to the podcast to discuss – wait for it – MONSTER TRUCKS! He recently attended a MONSTER JAM event in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania with his family and lived to tell about it! We delve into a brief history of monster trucks, a comparison of the differences between Monster Truck Nationals and Monster Jam (SPOILER – it’s like NXT and Monday Night Raw), the controversy behind Bigfoot splitting from the Monster Jam circuit, and what professional wrestling could learn from the bookers who write for monster trucks!

Wrestlefolks Presents…SUPER SLOPPY DOUBLE DARE – WWF SLOP-A-MANIA 2 (Special Craft Services Worker Commentary Track)


In 1989, WWF Superstars Hacksaw Jim Duggan & Mr. Perfect guest-starred on an episode of Nickelodeon’s Super Sloppy Double Dare, hosted by Marc Summers. We wanted to cover the entire episode, but it’s 22 minutes long. Luckily, I was able to track down someone involved in the production.

Amos Rabinovich-Perez will go down in history as Hollywood’s youngest full-time craft services worker ever. At age 12, he ran craft services for Double Dare and, after years of living in silence on a ranch in Cody, Wyoming, he’s breaking his silence with this special audio commentary track about this specific episode (one of his favorites)! The on-set gossip, the shocking friendship he built, the sex, the drugs, and the rock ‘n’ roll! All of the gossip is here!

Wrestlefolks #77: KENNY HERZOG


In this special mid-week episode of the podcast, Kenny Herzog returns to discuss his Rolling Stone Q&A article with former WWE Superstar and current UFC-contracted fighter CM Punk (read here)! We discuss how the interview was put together, interesting tidbits that were cut out of the article, how Punk might draw on pay-per-view compared to other wrestlers-turned-fighters, his other wrestling-related articles on RollingStone.com, and just what the heck was Punk buying at Walgreens?
