Welcome to another edition of
OFF-TRACK with A-TRAIN

in this episode
HEY, REMEMBER KINGS OF LEON?
So who remembers Kings of Leon? They had that song "Sex On Fire" like nine years ago? Remember that?

Ah, good times. 2008. Remember how young we all were?

But the last word on the whole thing should belong to indie wrestling star Joey Ryan:
All in all, the moral of the story seems to be this:
Only wrestling fans can make fun of wrestling.
