Oz Under The Gimmick - UTRR050

Independent Shows Are Fun - UTRR049

Roman I think I Like You - UTRR045

This week Tom and I have to come to terms with the idea that we both might finally cheer for Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania. I think the new phrase should be anyone but Lesnar, so this could be a caree defining moment for Roman Reigns.

This could be the breakout match he really needs to be on the same level as Cena. Plus the debut of our new segment, The Hot Tag....


Mr America, Under The Gimmick - UTRR044

It seems strange to put a mask on one of the most popular figures in pro wrestling and pretend like you have no clue who it is. If this sounds like a TNA storyline, think again. Mr America was a WWE creation in 2003, and it was Hulk Hogan wearing a mask and being know as Mr America.

Visions of the Road to Mania - UTRR041
