Welcome to the 20x20 Podcast, powered by 20x20Apparel.com. Our goal is to produce a podcast where you, the listener, are just a fly on the wall during a conversation about professional wrestling. There will be a segment called The Five Count, where a Top Five list will be discussed. There's a different topic every episode. Feel free to share your lists with us on social media using the hashtag, #fivecount.

This is another special episode of our podcast, once again coming to you from backstage (upstairs?) at the Olde Wrestling (www.oldewrestling.com) show in Detroit. But we aren't talking about the show... we are barely talking about wrestling!
Our guest is RJ City, international wrestling superstar, actor extraordinaire and friend/enemy of David Arquette. RJ took time out of his busy schedule to sit down with us as we discussed our favorite TV shows and movies that wrestlers have been a part of. We have some that you would expect... but RJ comes through with some DEEP cuts from yesteryear. After you listen to this episode, you're probably going to be racing to YouTube to find these clips. Well look no further than to the 20x20 YouTube page! We set up a Playlist right here that covers many of the shows and movies that we discussed.
Also as you have come to expect from us, there are a lot of non-wrestling topics... like why does Coney Island call their hot dogs "Coneys"? Where does RJ like to go when he is in Detroit? Why should you treat "every day like it is WrestleMania"? What concert will RJ be attending with us later this year? Is Danhausen really haunting the upper level of the Detroit City Distillery? Where can the best apple fritter be found? And so much more!
RJ City is all over the internet:
Facebook: facebook.com/rjcity (where he makes coffee in his underwear every Sunday morning).
YouTube: RJ City (where he absolutely does not upload his coffee videos).
IMDb: RJ Skinner

This special episode brings a few "firsts" to the 20x20 Table. Peter is joined in-studio by Rex to put a bow on the Olde Wrestling event that took place in Detroit at the end of March. If you haven't heard, it went off splendidly! Please follow Olde Wrestling on Twitter and Instagram, as well as their website www.oldewrestling.com for everything in their black and white universe. See them this August in Ohio (Boo!) for their yearly Extravaganza and hopefully back in Detroit very soon.
Another first this week is our first real interview! (Sorry Aaron.) Before the Olde show, Peter and Chris sat down with Gregory Iron - wrestling superstar, motivational speaker, vintage shirt collector and part-time matador. As is the style with the rest of our episodes, actual current wrestling is barely talked about! Gregory has a history of wacky wrestling-related Halloween costumes, so we have a special #fivecount, trying to come up with some ideas for his 2019 costume. We hit some winners, but be sure to follow him on his social media like his Instagram and Twitter to see what he chooses, if any. Maybe he has something else up his sleeve.
As always, you can take part in the fun. Make your own list and send it to us via email, social media, USPS or voice message. Use the hashtag #fivecount and we will find it. Let us know what you think of our lists and what you are dressing up as for Halloween (because it's never too early for Halloween talk).
Our latest episode brings to you a round table discussion about our choices for the 2019 WWE Hall of Fame. In 2017, we did a written version of this topic, which you can still find on www.20x20apparel.com. For 2019, the same rules apply... we continue to discuss people we think should be in the HOF. Five choices (one of which is your headliner) and one celebrity pick.
Your hosts Peter and Chris are joined by both Aaron, who made an appearance in an earlier episode via voice mail and executive producer George, whose opinions come through the air waves via his toe nails clicking on the floor and his collar shaking. They break down all of their picks and veer slightly off-topic when discussing topics like how the WWE is using Ronda Rousey, the best way to cook pizza rolls and how Mick Foley falling off the Cell in 1998 had an impact on all of our wrestling-watching lives. It's a jam packed, late-night episode filled with music, pageantry and a little bit of controversy mixed in with a few tall boys and juggalo nonsense.
As always, you can take part in the fun. Make your own list and send it to us via email, social media, carrier pigeon or voice message. Use the hashtag #fivecount and we will find it. Let us know what you think of our lists and what your 2019 class would look like.
Our sixth episode brings you something different than our usual shenanigans. We present to you the first annual Wrestlemania Challenge! Given all of the matches in Wrestlemania history, you need to create your own card of 10 matches - a World title match, 2 mid-card title matches, a tag title match, a women's match, a match featuring the Undertaker and 4 wildcard matches. Here's the catch... you can't repeat a wrestler, a title or have a singular WM represented more than once. Can you do it? Are you using Shawn Michaels vs Razor Ramon or Kurt Angle? Can't have both! Oh, you want Austin vs The Rock from WM17? Then you can't use the TLC match!
Your hosts Peter and Chris are joined once again by the young boy Jacob as they go through their WMC lists. There are a lot of matches and superstars that you'd expect... and some other than may shock you. Did anyone mess up and pick the same wrestler twice? Did anyone take HBK vs Taker, which is arguably the greatest match in WM history? Did anyone take Goldberg vs Lesnar from WM20? Nah, no one would do that.... or would they?

Episode 5 bring you the return of the Five Count! Today your hosts Peter and Chris, along with returning young boy Jacob, discuss their favorite all time live events that they have attended. There is a lot packed into this episode, so get ready for the longest episode to date! It starts with a recreation of Steve Austin's famous Margarita mix... and it goes off the rails from there. Before you know it, we are an hour in and the #fivecount hasn't even started! New microphones, shaking ice, alcohol flowing, stuffy sinuses and recording way past our bed times all tie together to give you this offering of the pod. We are like your friends in the car when you're going on a trip, and this episode dives deep into all of the roadies that we have taken when going to various wrestling shows. So strap on your seatbelt and join us as we discuss all things regarding the memories involved with our favorite live events!
Episode 4 is the return of Jacob with your hosts Peter and Chris, as they discuss all things that happened at Astronomicon 2, the world's greatest pop-culture convention, hosted by Detroit's own TWIZTID and their Majik Ninja Entertainment family. 20x20 had a booth at the convention and the boys hosted multiple trivia sessions over the 3 day weekend. Hear the stories about how the trivia went, try to answer some of the wrestling questions along with Chris, relive the interaction the boys had with such Con guests as Jake The Snake Roberts, Goldust and Bill Moseley.... and much more! You will feel like you are hanging out at the convention with your friends
Episode 3 sees your hosts Chris and Peter fighting a blizzard, ice storm and Michigan allergies to bring you the #fivecount topic of... Favorite Wrestlers of All Time. There's a little cross-over with the lists and there isn't a lot of debate, but that will soon change as the topics get broader. Will Peter take all TNA and ROH alumni? Will Chris try to pick ECW for every pick? Who knows! There is also a special announcement within this episode regarding Astronomicon 2, happening on February 8-10 in Sterling Heights, MI. But you will have to tune in and listen for that.
Episode 2 goes off the rails, and fast! We abandon the promise of Favorite All-time Wrestlers and jump right into an old favorite - the Royal Rumble Drinking Game! Peter and Chris welcome Jacob to the podcast as they watch the Rumble match from 2009. There is a loose set of rules for taking a drink when certain things in the match occur. Feel free to fire up and pour yourself a beverage to watch along... or just listen along as we go through numerous stories, arguments and all-around nonsense. From stories about the famous Joe Louis Arena (and its parking lot) to debating the HOF credentials of R-Truth, this episode is an instant classic.
In this first episode, you get to meet your hosts Peter and Chris. The #fivecount topic is Favorite Current Wrestlers. This is a good opportunity to get to know everyone and start the groundwork for our podcast going forward. Did your current favorites make the cut? Tune in to find out and then let us know what your list is. Maybe we will play or read your list on a future episode.
