Kray Z Comics and Stories 136: Kray-a-mania!

Cory and Joe have outed themselves as Agents of HYRDA! So they go over a ton of news, opinion and other stuff in an episode that defies the idea of a theme. They talk about:

  • Wrestlemaina 30
  • The passing of the Ultimate Warrior and how he connects to a Tale From The Shop!
  • They put over PWInsider, the BEST website for wrestling news, for Free!
  • Oh, and they finally get to the Tale From The Shop. It takes a while
  • They segue from wrestling to comics companies that wallow in nostalgia vs companies that embrace moving forward.
  • Disney buying Marvel, the Muppets and Star Wars
  • Cory does a Hangin’ At The Home story!
  • Freaking and geeking

Plus the usual shenanigans and much much more!
