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.))

    P and Ramon both made so many garbage-ass puns oh god. There's a boy leaking blood, a lady with a rock skeleton, party kids who love blocks, and a man with the worst typo in the world for a name.

    54: Deathmatch For Cutie

    P has some really bad opinions on matinee movies, which sets the tone for the kind of gimmicks they come up with this week! If you had "30 seconds" in the "how long until Ramon gets fed up with P" raffle, congratulations, you won. This week there's gameshow rappers, wrestlers who only work in the morning, elementary school instruments, and emo and ska, together at last.
