About

NECKBREAKER is a pro wrestling and heavy metal themed podcast with guest interviews and discussion over the latest pro wrestling and heavy metal headlines. The show is produced by Gauntlet Creative.

Founders Brian Thompson and John Aubrey came up with the concept of hosting a podcast back in 2012 over burritos. After some much needed prep work, deciding a show name, and obtaining the proper audio equipment, the show finally launched on November 1, 2012 and has been going strong ever since. Sir Chris Kessaris was later added as a permanent co-host after his insightful, yet entertaining appearance on Episode 3.
