Big Daddy Danger, what’s that? Well, it’s a little discussed/little known DC Comic about a superhero professional wrestler. Why are we talking about it? Well, how else would I be able to shoe-horn a conversation about my own life and times as a professional wrestler… for about six months or so.

I should probably preface with a slight Trigger Warning… as much as those two words make me kind of cringe. Around midway through this episode, I tell a story I’ve never told before. One that veers into some darker territory, and one that I didn’t realize was quite so dark in hindsight until after I’d told it. I guess saying things “out loud” for the first time can really affect the heaviness of a thing.
The gist of the rest of the episode is just that I was a fanatical professional wresting fan throughout my childhood and adolescence… and went to great lengths to fulfill a dream of actually (briefly) becoming a professional wrestler. If you’re a wrestling fan, or just a fan of stupid stories… this episode will be right up your alley!
