WWE's Adam Cole Talks NXT And Up Up Down Down Goals, The Shockmaster, And More | Wrestle Buddies Episode 19

This week on Wrestle Buddies, we welcome NXT's Adam Cole to talk wrestling, video games, and ruling over Up Up Down Down.


This week on Wrestle Buddies, GameSpot's professional wrestling podcast, Chris E. Hayner and Mat Elfring are revisiting one of the most iconic bits of wrestling weirdness to ever happen. That's right, it's Shockmaster week on Wrestle Buddies--though not the way you might expect.

We're kicking off the show by looking back at everything that happened after The Shockmaster tripped through a wall, with his helmet falling off. What you might not remember is the character didn't end there. In fact, he had a bunch of matches and the gimmick somehow got much more bizarre.

Then, we welcome WWE superstar Adam Cole to the podcast to talk about his shared history with NXT's Finn Balor, and whether he's ready to move to Raw or Smackdown. Of course, given the love we have for Up Up Down Down, we had to also talk video games with Cole, and the joy of playing Uno with your friends during quarantine.

All that plus we answer your questions! New episodes of Wrestle Buddies are released every Thursday on the podcast platform or app of your choice, including Spotify, Stitcher, and Apple Podcasts.
