“Russian Week” just became a “Russian Nightmare”!  Chris and Gregg had the tremendous honor of speaking with a true legend and NWA Hall of Famer, Nikita Koloff.  Hear all about how he got his start in wrestling, and how he pretty much learned the art of the business on the fly.  From legendary feuds with Magnum T.A. and legendary partnerships with the likes of Dusty Rhodes, this interview is packed with amazing stories from the “Golden Age” of wrestling.

A Conversation w/ Nikita Koloff


Kicking off “Russian Week” on the podcast is one of the hottest young female talents on the indy scene.  Joining us from all the way in Japan, is New York native Masha Slamovich.  Trained by Johnny Rodz in Brooklyn, Masha brings a unique and old school view of wrestling for such a young performer.  Hear all about her experiences in Japan, as well as what she wants to eat first when she comes back stateside.  We also talk in depth about one of her favorite wrestlers, Chris Benoit.  Also, stay tuned at the end of the show for a HUGE announcement!

Florida native Troy Hollywood joins the “Indy Lounge” in what promises to be the most off the wall interview we have done yet.  We talk about so many topics in this conversation that the wrestling is few and far between.  From video games, to relationships, to YouTube rabbit holes, it is a unique chat to say the least.  If you want more from your wrestling podcasts than your typical questions, you have come to the right place.

The Indy Lounge is back interviewing the very best talent on the independent wrestling scene.  This is episode is no different, as we welcome the other half of the International Superstars, “The Dream Girl” Ellie.  Ellie and the guys cover a litany of topics including Disney, tattoos, and, on occasion, her wrestling life story.  If you are looking for a less than typical wrestler interview, you have one right here!

There is a lot of unrest in our country today. Chris and Gregg would be remissed if they did not make their voices heard about our current social situation. After that, the guys get back to doing what they do best, which is talking old school wrestling. Fire up your WWE Network and watch along with the crew as they take in a classic match between 2 legends. It’s Sting vs. The Great Muta from 9/1/89 and its all right here on the DDT Archives!

Sociology and Stinger Splashes

We are very excited about today’s guest on the Indy Lounge.  Gregg and Chris have followed this man’s career from his early days in NJ wrestling, and were honored to have Mario Bokara hang out with them for a bit.  Mario has wrestled for OVW, Impact, Wrestle Pro, and many more promotions.  He shares a ton of stories from the road, as well as some of his favorite memories of old school wrestling.
