First of all, we would like to take the time to thank everyone who has supported us, from listeners and viewers to guests we've had on our show! This past March we decided to step away from radio for the time being as we felt we had veered off from our intended goal when we first launched the 'On The Ropes Wrestling Podcast' nearly 2 years ago. In those 2 years we've had the opportunity to meet and connect with wonderful and amazing people.
This year we had the pleasure of being invited to C2E2 to conduct some exclusive interviews with the writers, producers and stars of Lucha Underground and we cannot wait to share these interviews with you. So for the entire month a May we will be releasing these episodes leading up to the mid season premiere of Lucha Underground season 3. Below you can check the release schedule of each episode as they will be released here and on iTunes as well as video we recorded for you on YouTube!
