This may surprise you as a listener, but our team are friends outside the podcast studio. We enjoy attending shows and hanging out like any other group (well, before COVID f’d everything up). The big difference is other groups of friends don’t compete for the ESSR Title.
Listeners of the show will be familiar with our regular quiz shows. Whilst these are just generally fun to do, there was a need of something to strive off, a trophy so there was.
We brought in the ESSR Title which would go to the respective winners of these quizzes, as well as our WWE and ICW PPV sweepstakes.
So far, more than half of the team have had a reign as champion, with some being successful on more than one occasion.
See below for our past ESSR Title holders.
