On the Bear Skin Rug: Road Trip
In a effort to save money most wrestlers will travel with other wrestlers. Sometimes the conversations on the way to shows are far more entertaining than anything on the show that night. In a effort to capture that type of magic we got the to best people for the job, Paul London and Tracy Smothers.
Paul London continues on with his "On the Bear Skin Rug" tour and Tracy Smothers is along for the ride. Both these men are highly opinionated and share common interests, friends and experiences.
