A great podcast for all pro wrestling and sports business fans

Unique and Insightful

Mookie and Brandon do a terrific job covering major wrestling news in ways that no one else does, especially in podcast form. This is not the show to listen to if you’re looking for the generic “WWE sucks” takes that you can get on virtually every other wrestling podcast in the flooded market right now. Instead, you’ll get reasoned analysis about things like house show crowds, Network subscriptions, the general financial state of the company, etc. Plus they talk about ACTUAL wrestling, too. It’s a must-listen for me every week along with a few other shows. I consume a lot of wrestling podcasts but Wrestlenomics gives me the most new information every week. Keep up the great work.
