The Montreal podcast that takes a little bit longer to figure out when Tyrannosaurus Rex and Stegosaurus were alive than you might expect is back. Dinosaur facts!


(More dinosaur facts: I misspelled both “Tyrannosaurus” and “Stegosaurus” while typing them! Feel free to guess how.)


At a certain point in this episode Scott posits that CM Punk is one of the most recognizable wrestlers currently actively wrestling. Listen, Keith owns 4 pieces of wrestling merch and 3 of them are CM Punk branded so you would think he would be ready to avidly agree, but he does not.


Let’s turn to Twitter to measure the global reach of currently active wrestlers even though, as we discuss in this episode, many of these followers might be fake. The Top 4 that we posit have global recognition of active wrestlers are: Ronda Rousey, Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns and CM Punk. Let’s see how many followers they have:



Brock is probably hurting since he hasn’t tweeted since 2020 but that’s still a pretty big case for Roman Reigns. A picture of him that he tweeted on April 30th holding the belts had 500 comments, 2000 retweets and 17,000 likes. Nobody else on that list gets close to those numbers.


Then again, he works for a company that his piped in cheers over stadium speakers to try to make it look like people were actually cheering for him a few years ago so maybe this entire exercise has been pointless.


I think it’s also worth noting that Ronda is an absolute abysmal follow on Twitter.


Garbage Time returns this week since we’re all healthy and we reward you for your patience with an extra-long edition of it! A meandering conversation that includes Scott’s takes on “The Batman” and trying to figure out just who “El Muerto” is in the Marvel Universe. No, not the one in the DC Universe. Not sure who we’re talking about? He’s getting a Sony produced movie starring Bad Bunny so you will find out soon! If all that sounds like the best (because it is), show your support and head over to Patreon and subscribe at the 9ES Deluxe tier to listen to this and all past episodes of Garbage Time!
