Happy holidays from the Wrestle Buddies, the hosts of GameSpot’s professional wrestling podcast. Gearing up for The Buddiesies–our annual award show–Mat and Chris are taking a week to dive into a very dumb WWE toy from the late ’90s. Also, it’s the return of WrestlePiece Theater.
Kicking things off, a few weeks back, Chris picked up a WWE toy from eBay, and it brought him a lot of joy, so Mat tried the same thing. However, Mat’s journey to joy was rough as he purchased something called WWF Bangerz–he wanted Pogs but those were too expensive. Mat opens up these Bangerz and tries to learn how to play them. At first, it seems like a pretty dumb game; however, Mat can’t stop playing.
Following that, there’s one last fun trick up our sleeves, as we have the final WrestlePiece Theater for 2020. Reenacting one of the most famous promos pre-Attitude Era are some of GameSpot After Dark’s and We Enjoy Wrestling’s hosts. Kallie Plagge, Tamoor Hussain, Chastity Vicencio, Matt Fowler, and Eric Goldman all lend their talents to voice “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. Why did Fowler choose a British accent? The world may never know.
All that, plus we answer your questions. New episodes of Wrestle Buddies are released every Thursday on the podcast platform or app of your choice, including Spotify, Stitcher, and Apple Podcasts. You can also keep up to date with the podcast by following it on Twitter.
