You fans can stick it, brother! In our first episode of 2020, we're finishing up Season 3 of Netflix's The Toys That Made Us by discussing their episode about wrestling toys (as well as many, many other tangents). We couldn't do it without wrestling afficionado TOM G. WOLF -- our first international guest, Skyped in from Sydney, Australia! Throughout this extra-macho episode we make sure to hit on: Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Hulk Hogan: Supernanny, Baddie Hulk, wrestlers on Baywatch, Crazy Vince McMahon, Bayley and Heel Bayley, as well as kayfabe and other wrestling terminology. The laundry list of wrestling and toy companies discussed includes: WWF, WCW, WWE, Mattel, Hasbro, Jakks Pacific, Galoob, LJN, Ringside Collectibles, and more.
Other toys discussed: NECA TMNT and predator. Mondo/Mondoids/Fallout/Iron Giant. McFarlane DC Multiverse (specifically Batman). Marvel Legends. MEGO (Nosferatu and other horror).
Thanks to Tom G. Wolf and also thanks More Of That (and Bayley) for our theme music.
