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?

– Brutus Beefcake warns us of the dangers of overweight hillbillies falling on us
– Hulk Hogan drags a camera operator into the Dungeon of Doom
– Ric Flair & Vader are so angry that Ric puts on mascara!
All of this, plus we talk about Kenny’s recent articles for Rolling Stone, growing up as a fan, and how Daniel Bryan is the most Pitchfork-friendly star in WWE history!
