TIA Off-Season: Tom's "The Jetson's & WWE: Robo-WrestleMania!" Report & The Cameo Game

Koko.jpg

On this week's off-season episode Producer Tom is finally making good on the bet that he lost many, many episodes ago - he's watched "The Jetson's & WWE: Robo-WrestleMania!" and is giving his full report.

Then, Joaquin has grown tired of coming up with bits to open the show, so he's come up with a solution - The Cameo game! Chuck & Tom face off in a game of Joaquin's design, with the winner choosing a wrestler off of Cameo who (fingers crossed) will do a brief intro for the rest of the off-season.
