Will Shaq be in the match? Will Curt Hawkins be in the match? Will the women stand out at all? Is Tye Dillinger the best story going in NXT right now? Answers to those questions and so much more in this super-sized episode that is appropriately bigger in Texas.

Pro Grapplers Episode 24: The Woman Who Will Kill You With Her Feet

A still from the video for "Intergalactic" by the Beastie BoysThe road to the Royal Rumble continues, with not a Roadblock in sight! RAW was pretty terrible this week, so the guys instead focus on Smackdown, NXT, and even NJPW to find the good in the grappling. They wrestle with the following questions: Who will win the 2017 Royal Rumble? Is it possible that entrance themes play magically upon proximity to an entry way? Did Carmella fight an old lady? Will Tozawa save us from a lackluster 205 Live product? Is an Intergalactic Championship on the way?

Digital Strips Podcast 312 – Review – All New Issues

We have a new rival here at Digital Strips and we don’t even know their names. We found a podcast older than us and we just don’t like them.

This week, Jason brings to the table All New Issues, a comic that strikes a little too close to home in some ways and not at all in others. We talk about how much it reminds us of other comics and how in this case, that’s a good thing.

We also talk about our mysterious patron, little ways you at home can change the world by hugging garbage, why litter is horrible, why Gallager is not as horrible as you may think, why Jason can’t pronouce the name of this show, Steve gives tax advice and Jason turns around and gives career advice to Pat Bennatar.

Play at home game: count how many euthinism Steve has (Note – I’m editing this post for typos and I can’t figure out what Steve meant here, so “euthinism” stands – Jason).

Always remember: We’re a podcast. People don’t listen to me, we’re in trouble.

Show Notes, I’ll have links up later in the day.
