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.))

    Ramon tries to skip out on work for a christmas party, but P catches him and makes him come up with christmas themed gimmicks! Honestly it's a real dick move by P.

    42: HOTTAKES-GIVING

    Every year, the staff of PGWW gets together for a company-wide meal, followed by the evening's entertainment: everybody telling the wrestlers how bad they are. This year is Ramon's first year as a presenter, and he tries out some of his material backstage with Power P! P's been doing this for years, but they test out some of their material too. They absolutely take the piss out of a stable of babies, an airhead MMA fighter, a hacker, and a piece of late 90's software!
