Award-winning comedy writer Marc Haynes has watched every single Wrestlemania. Broadcaster Pete Donaldson hasn’t. Join them both every week as they subject the greatest spectacle in sports entertainment to the kind of scrutiny that ruins them entirely.
A hilarious and surprisingly insightful look into some of the most preposterous, glamorous and over-the-top sporting events the world has ever seen – from Hulk Hogan and Mr T at Madison Square Garden way back in 1985 to Roman Reigns and The Undertaker going head-to-head in April 2017 – Wrestle Me is a must-listen accompaniment to The Grandest Stage of Them All.
Say your prayers, take your vitamins and pop your human growth hormone while it's still technically legal. It's Wrestle Me!

    WRESTLE ME LIVES!

    WRESTLE ME LIVES!

    ONE MORE MATCH!
    Wrestle Me, as we know it...is over. But in the very *spirit* of sports entertainment retirement, we're simply going to wait a few days, clear out our motel room of whiskey bottles and resurface in another territory!
    So here's what's happening.
    We're going to be continuing the show you love, Wrestle Me *exclusively* over on Patreon. WWW.PATREON.COM/WRESTLEME baby!
    And we're switching things up. No longer are we going to just concentrate on good Wrestlemanias past, and terrible Wrestlemanias present - we're going to be taking a look at wrestling from all eras, all the time. We're going to be kicking off with AEW's Full Gear 2021, along with King Of The Ring 1993. Then we're straight into good old Wrestle Me-mas!
    January? Royal Rumble and Wrestle Kingdom - alongside some of your favourite ECW, WWF, WWWWF, Impact and TNA PPVs. And all the other federations that recorded their master tapes on wax cylinders. We're also going to be reviewing films and albums, too! So tell us about your favourites now...
    Will our comeback be HBK at Summerslam, or Warrior in Barcelona? Only time will tell...
    WWW.PATREON.COM/WRESTLEME - what the world has come to.

    Head on over to Patreon.com/WrestleMe for much, much more. Like... a silly amount more. More details to follow tomorrow - along with another PPV - King Of The Ring 1993!

“Unbelievable!”

Borrowing the over used phrase from Vinny Mac, this is a great way to re visit the WWF(E) from years past. The Lord Alfred “Roddy” outburst is never far from my mind. 😄

Perfect

Just discovered the pod, brilliant show, great humour, no annoying tangents, can’t wait to listen to the rest of it.

The Best

Ruined my memory of my childhood heroes in the funniest way ever! That Billy Graham poster can never be unseen!
