    Unlikely partnership here but it works and then some. Dutch seems like a real good guy from wrasslin’ and James is excellent at moving the show along and asking great questions. Recommend! (Especially if you need a break from the other overly ad heavy shows)

    Ditch is the BEST!
    This shoe is great to listen to as Dutch is so funny! A lot of the time, he doesn't mean to be funny, but he cracks a good one every now and then. He is a good man, not as a jerk or has attitude. I know him personally and he still cracks me up! Suggestion - Buy his two books! You’ll lover them and laugh through every chapter. This was not paid for the. I did it as a favor to my friend. By the way, Dutch is the man who gave Steve Austin his name, when Steve couldn’t think of one. Dennis

    Love that theme song!
    Reminds me of a cross between Deadwood and Tarantino. The show is great too! I like a no nonsense crusty veteran wrestler talking to refined young Brit any day of the week! Updated: JAN ‘24: the show keeps getting better and better. The new formats and 2/week is appreciated. Best way I can describe the show is it’s an easy listen…falling asleep at night or driving to the gym, I can enjoy it any time of day when it pops in queue.

    I started listening to Dutch because of the Bruiser Brody episode from Dark Side of the Ring. I was very involved from his story telling from that show. There I found this podcast. Great stuff, I could listen him talk all day!

    Enjoy the stories from good ole days
    I’ve watched Dutch since the early ‘80s on World Class from Dallas. I really enjoy the stories from the (IMO) good ol’ days of territory wrestling. James and Dutch compliment each other so well. I listen every week on my older phone due to less storage on the newer phone. But it’s can’t miss podcasting, IMO! 😄

    Ads destroyed a great podcast
    Idk what happened but there are more ads than ever Conrad Thompson level of ads maybe even worse like mid sentence ads. No way a 30-40 pod should have this many ads. Sorry I will just watch on YouTube w a adblocker Really no way to enjoy this as a podcast

    Love the Podcast!
    Dutch has a million stories to tell, and he’s a great storyteller! Very entertaining and insightful.
  • KYoldtimer
    Best old school wrestling podcasts
    Dutch covers current wrestling news, but mostly focuses on stories of the old days. And Dutch's old days cover everything from Memphis in the 80s through 21st century WWE

    Another Trump Nut
    Two stars plus another for the mustache. Too repetitive and has run its course. Very surprised that a Brit would broadcast and support another hoodwinked right winged Trump nut. Bring back Don Muraco

    Grew up on Dutch in Memphis. I had my parents get me a Bullwhip because of him. What a great storyteller.

    Awesome Storyteller with the experience to back it up!
    Even though I’m a life long wrestling fan, I discovered a whole new world through the excellent experience of Dutch. He’s got a natural talent for storytelling so that he could describe paint drying and it would still be captivating listening!
