Wrestle Daddies

Logo by Scott Latimer

We are the Wrestle Daddies, and these are our Wrestle Children

Jake and Brett have been longtime friends, wrestling fans, and improvisers. They have decided to take their relationship one further by entering fatherhood together, but these aren’t your regular baybays! We take your suggestions for wrestler names or wrestler gimmicks and nurture those ideas into fully grown wrestle children.

New Episodes every Thursday!

Brett and Jake are Toronto based improvisers, writers, and comedians, and founding members of Hot Garbage Players.

If you have suggestions of terrible, amazing or terribly amazing wrestler ideas for the Dads, send us an email at wrestledaddies@gmail.com
