Curtain Jerkers, Episode 15: Lucha Extravaganza with Nacho and Silver King
Before we dive into the episode, have you seen our badass logo? Awesome designer Trais Colton Barhaug rocked that for us and you should go support him now! T-shirts, pins, and stickers are on their way.
Thanks to Justin’s long time friend, Kwalified, a diehard wrestling fan and dope emcee hailing from Hawaii, for our great intro song.
This, our 15th episode (and slightly belated January episode), features good and bad lucha. The good comes from the Silver King and the bad from the silver screen. While Justin is surely a fan of Nacho Libre and Doug is surely not, they can agree that the wrestling in the film is not so great… but the actual matches they cover from the legendary luchador Silver King, on the other hand.
We touched briefly on the sad passing of Jay Briscoe, but in late February we’re taking on some classic Hardy matches and including a bonus third match of the Hardys vs. the Briscoes, so we can spend a bit more time on Jay in the ring and the mark he’s left on wrestling.
Thanks for joining us each month and if you have requests or ideas, feel free to let us know! For now, enjoy the show and watch Jack Black serenade you below!
