We talk about growing up in CT, being Paul Roma's first student, the origin of his gimmick and his recent accomplishments in the business which includes becoming the 2018 ECWA Super 8 Winner. The consumers are buzzing that this episode is MOST MARKETABLE.

It's the end of the month so we discuss what happened in the world of WWE. We touch on Mania, the shake up, and various things we like and dislike with the current product.
Also, we thought we were getting Ashley Vox on the show but to much of our surprise we got something entirely different. Oceanea takes us by surprise to tell us her plans for the upcoming Chikara Pro shows, Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes (4/28) and The Infinite Gauntlet (5/5). The Queen of the Sea and her Creatures of the Deep have some bad intentions about taking over the Chikara roster.
Bill Goldberg was just inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame so what better film to review for this month's critic week than his debut on the big screen, Universal Soldier: The Return. Jean Claude Van Damme reprises his role as Luc Deveraux, a former UniSol who is unexplainably human again and now a father to his teeanage daughter. Hell breaks loose as the AI system, SETH, becomes self aware and goes into business for himself, taking control of all the UniSols including Goldberg, AKA Romeo. Who's next? JCVD is next in this not so great sequesl to a movie that we remember being pretty decent as kids but in reality was probably the drizzling shits. We're joined by our pals Dave Adams (douchebag who likes wrestlin') and Flash Nick Mckenna (Pro Wrestler, NAWA, PWT).
Ever wanted to book WrestleMania? If time wasn't a factor just imagine the possibilities pitting the superstars of today versus those of yester year.

Jonny and Harmon talk about the biggest news this month. Hell the biggest news this year! Daniel Bryan is cleared for in ring competition! We never thought we'd see the day. We gush about his Wrestlemania plans, the Ronda Rousey debacle and give some brief thoughts on some other matches on the grandest stage of them all.
The boys also give a pretty in depth hype for Limitless Wrestling's "Only Fools Are Satisfied" which they will be in attendance for. Its going to be nuts. Be there or be square, NERD!
We got Booned this week on The Maine Event Podcast. We watched Boone: The Bounty Hunter starring John Hennigan (Morrison, Mundo). The fast paced action comedy is super fun and for once we actually really enjoyed watching a good movie. We run through the film and give our thoughts scene by scene. The fight choreography is cool, the one liners are clever and B list celebrities are plentiful. Enjoy it as much as we did!
It's March Madness time again and so we thought its time for a tournament of our own. This week we bring in Greg "Gregulator" Marston to help us navigate our way through a 16 team bracket of our favorite submissions in the world of pro wrestling. We narrow it down to the two finalists and then let our Twitter followers take it from there. Go to @MaineEventPod on Twitter so vote in our poll for who think should take the crown as Favorite Submission.
