Recorded last night at Lucha Va Voom's successful New York debut, it's the Loser Leaves Town Podcast.

First I'm joined by T.J. Perkins (AKA Pinoy Boy/Puma/Cobra II, currently El Bombero in Lucha Va Voom) to discuss his travels around the world as a 25 year-old who's a 10 year veteran.  Lots of great stuff about going to New Japan and the LA Dojo including wrestling in the Tokyo Dome, the MMA training that led to him actually having fights, becoming Cobra II while being tempted with promises of maybe eventually being Tiger Mask V, and much more.

After that is Cassandro, the top exotico in wrestling today.  A 21 year veteran, he talks about his pre-wrestling career as a medical assistant, being trained by Rey Misterio Sr. in the class that included the original Psicosis/Nicho and a very young Rey Mysterio (Jr.), wrestling in Juarez and El Paso, being a gay man in the wrestling business in Mexico, how Antonio Peña helped him and others, his current travels around the world (including wrestling El Hijo del Santo at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France!), and more.

All in all, a very fun hour of interviews.

You can check out the (newly redesigned) archive of past shows at LoserLeavesTown.net.

Later today or tomorrow, there will be more Lucha Va Voom coverage as I go over my thoughts on the show and provide pretty pictures for everyone to look at.

After the jump, you can watch today's guests in action against each other in a fun match from last year.
