The Gimmick Room

The Gimmick Room

Power P and Ramon "Red Eyes" Bermudez both work for the pro wrestling company Pro Graps Worldwide. P is a retired wrestler, and the Head of Talent Relations, and Ramon is the Head Writer and Booker. Every two weeks they meet up in the writer's room to come up with new gimmicks for PGW. What they don't know is that their sessions are being recorded in secret and being released as a podcast.

((The Gimmick Room is a fictional podcast created by Eli Alaimo and Jonathan Alvarez. PGW is not real. At least not yet.))

    39: Human Beings ONLY

    The Monster International is soon! But Power P wants to round out the roster with some jobbers! So this year, they're adding humans! Just regular humans! There's kids from the future, wrestlers from the shore, bodybuilders, wrestlers from the mountains, and someone who may or may not be human at all!

    38: BREAKING THE CLOWN CURSE

    Power P is injured!!! In what seems to be a clown related incident! They take this to mean that the company is cursed, so P gets Ramon to come up with as many clown gimmicks as possible to dispel the curse through oversaturation. It makes sense. To them anyways. There's trucker clowns, artist clowns, sports clowns, high class clowns, high concept clowns, and the most terrifying deathmatch of all!

    37: ScreamFunk

    It's that time of the year! Ramon and P are gearing up for the Monster International! And to scout for it P went to a horror and funk music themed con! In this episode there's masked pianists, tie dye, knives, shotgun guitarists, and music that is impossible for the human hand to play!

    35 - Microsoft Samuel

    P comes in this week not with gimmicks, but with a scouting report! And by scouting report we mean they went and found a bunch of people at a bar that may or may not have been running illegal pit fights. In this episode there's computer voices, reformed polluting victims, too much blood, absolutely yolked authors and THE KEY TO VICTORY

    34 - The Ragnarok And Roll Express

    Power P's into music now! They never listened to it until they found spotify on their smartphone so this week is all music gimmicks. (Ramon was always into music, for the record. P completely no sells it, spoiler alert.) There's bouncers, coffee themed metal bassists, two eerily similar tag teams, and noisecore artists! It's Pitchfork's favorite podcast episode!

    33 - The Ivy Leauge Cowboy Stanford Hanson

    It's been a while! What's Ramon been up to? Coming up with a lot of vaugely similar but ultimately completely different gimmicks! In this episode we have College cowboys, doctors, hackers, magicians, extremely old wrestlers, and extremely young wrestlers trying to make it in this economy!

    32: Opera Singer "The Cursed Verse"

    This week P and Ramon only came up with names with the hopes that the other would be able to come up with the gimmicks. It went okay! There's opera singers, hoarders, stone people, and the most complicated talking fish gimmick to date.
