Hi
I started TWS Radio back in 2011 with Andy and Steve and I’m still here today lol I am now the host of Team Mafia

I have been a wrestler a fan since before Wrestlmania 9. When my grandad sat me down and put on a vhs of the Big Boss Man fighting Nailz and since then I’ve been hooked.

TWS gives me the opportunity to talk with my friends about this bizarre sport and also follow my childhood dream of being a radio DJ

I’m involved in most of the spin off shows with TWS including On the Road, Commentaries and Total Talk.

I love the fan interaction that TWS brings and I also enjoy the varying topics that the wrestling business gives us to discuss

I’ve been a wrestling fan since 1997 when a friend of mine showed me the NWO in WCW, I thought it was the coolest thing I’d ever seen…. then I found ECW! Shortly after I tuned into my first WWE PPV Royal Rumble 1998. The attitude era was just kicking off and it was the start of the big push of ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin.

The attitude era came at a perfect time for an 11 year old boy and hooked me on wrestling for life. Who knows one day it may reach those dizzy heights again.

I joined the show on episode 100 (yes that long ago!) after one of the founding members Andy (who?!) decided to take time off. This is my second stint in the show as I took some time out for personal reasons but I was drafted back in after Dan gave me an offer I couldn’t refuse to join the mafia. How I got to be on the show was a complete accident. I met Dan and his wife through my ex as they had been friends for years, suddenly a normal dinner turned into an impromptu interview for a wrestling podcast, next thing I knew I was in the studio testing my skills.

I have gained a reputation for being negative about the wrestling industry today, I like to think of it as honest, after all it’s not always bad! Recently my nickname has shifted from Sweet T to Sour T. The show acts as a way for me to vent my frustrations and share my opinions (after all I have lots of them to share!).

I got into wrestling late in life because I love fighting and Im crap at football! I’m a wrestling monster that enjoys beating people up and I love picking people up and slamming them around! My job on TWS is to bring a wrestlers view to the show but also to give a unique outlook as Im very picky with the wrestlers I like and the wrestling I enjoy! Also Vader is the best wrestler EVER!

Joined TWS 2011

Hi guys I’m Cybil and I have been on TWS since nearly the start. When I came in to run the chat room after Hayfabe left.

I have been a wrestling fan for about 12 years. My husband (whom ever he is lol) showed me HHH V Kevin Nash in Hell in a Cell and since then I’ve been fascinated by the storylines and athletic feats the workers do.

I have always been passionate on getting the listener feedback and comments which is why I traditionally will run the chat room on the weekly show. I also host TWS ON the Road and TWS Commentaries.

Being part of TWS has given me some great experiences including tanning AJ Styles and meeting the Million Dollar Man.

I am also a very keen runner and run regular marathons and halves and I have often covered these in the show.

I look forward to interacting with the listeners each week and talking about the product.

Hey, my name is Scott and I’m one half of the tag team The Brothers Awe With my brothers and team family co member Joey.

I started watching wrestling as of wrestle mania 7 after Joey sat me down at a friend of ours and I remember savage and warrior. I was never sure if it was live or maybe a couple years later but I started watching as of 1993 and never stopped, now I do it, which was always the goal.

I joined tws in 2015 with Joey and we joined dan and he firmly put us under his learning tree and now we have our own show!

Joey and myself spend 24/7 talking wrestling and this is our way of forcing everyone else to hear our opinions haha!

Hey guys I’m Kieran, just to tell you about myself. I began watching wrestling at a very young age and have been hooked since. I have always wanted to be a pro wrestler and decided to train to become none at the age of 20. 7 years later I am traveling the independent scene and have help championships in the UK and Europe.
I joined TWS to give a wrestlers input on the wrestling scene and lets face it I’m still a huge wrestling fan and just love talking about it.

As you’ve all herd many times on the show I sight Ric Flair as one of my biggest idols along with Stone Cold Steve Austin, Mick Foley, Randy Orton, Rowdy Roddy Piper and Stan Hansen.

Hiya, my names Melissa, but call me Lissy! I am deep in the trenches of the chat room on every team family show. I joined as of the brand split in fall of 2016 and was drafted to team family, along side Scott, Joey and Kieran.

I got into wrestling as of 2010 and my first impressions were this is so strange, especially as the first person I saw was Dolph Ziggler and he had a crazy tan and a dog collar on. But this crazy world grew on me fast and now one of my favourites is Dolph Ziggler.

I am also the duck in The Brothers Awe’s crazy promo videos. If you haven’t seen them, do it, do it NOW!
