Welcome to Crossbody of Work, a show where we break down a wrestler’s career through five of their biggest matches.

Hoss Month concludes this week with an episode on the ever underappreciated Umaga. One of the best big men of the late 2000s, we’re looking at the career of Edward Fatu. We check out his run in Three Minute Warning as Jamal, and then move on to his run as the monster Umaga. Matches against John Cena, Triple H and Jeff Hardy are there, and yes we do cover the Battle of the Billionaires. Ugh. On top of all that, Evan & Javier also talk about:

  • Overly specific Boston references
  • Mispronouncing names
  • The 2002 New York knicks
  • Representation

And a lot more.
