Comedians Erik Barnes (ThatErikBarnes) & Joe Starr (@joestarr187) watched WWF IN YOUR HOUSE: BADD BLOOD with their other comedian friend Brock Wilbur (@brockwilbur), then recorded a podcast about it. Brock isn’t a wrestling fan.

Listen to Erik & Joe try to help Brock wrap his brain around things like handicap matches, Mexican midget wrestlers named Mosaic, and Vince McMahon announcing Brian Pillman’s death between pro wrestling battles.

Fan to Fan #25: BILLY KUMOHARA


CHIKARA’s Trivia Master sits down with Kevin to talk about, well, a lot of stuff! Billy and Kevin are alumnus from the same university, so naturally they swap some pretty out there stories from there times as undergrads. Of course wrestling is at the forefront of the conversation, with topics including ECW, radical gimmick changes, and of course, CHIKARA itself. If you only know Billy from the few times he’s been on DVD, you’re in for a real treat.
