About The Straight Shooters

Nick Piccone (, and Vaughn Johnson (formerly of started a pro wrestling podcast in 2015 and have continually produced excellent episodes weekly ... Live commentary specials before they were cool, deep dives into career retrospectives, high profile guests, current product analysis, and much more.

Not only do Vaughn and Nick discuss the main stage in WWE and AEW, but they also talk about the goings on in Ring of Honor, New Japan Pro Wrestling, NWA, Impact Wrestling, and the independent wrestling companies worldwide making waves in the wrestling industry. These guys don't just talk about what you see on television every week, they discuss their thoughts about the industry by citing interviews and live show experiences. Above all else, their fandom comes across to the audience as if they're sitting there beside them having a casual conversation about wrestling.

One of the longest-running shows on Wildfire Radio, The Straight Shooters have had a plethora of guests throughout the years, including WWE Hall of Famer and AEW broadcaster Jim Ross, former WWE creative writer Andrew Goldstein, WWE Cruiserweight Classic participant Anthony Bennett, former 97.5 The Fanatic host Nick Kayal,'s Sean Ross Sapp, the Rassle Rock crew, Bill Matz, Derek Badichek and many more! Comedian and host Brian Isley also entertained the masses by joining The Straight Shooters as their Third Man for an abundance of episodes in the archives!
