WWE Network in China, NJPW G1 Climax update, GFW, Ronda Rousey
The WWE Network is finally coming to China! Chris Harrington (@mookieghana) and Brandon Howard (@BrandonThurston) talk what this means for WWE’s business.

The wrestlemetricians try to explain the reasons behind GFW’s sparsely-attended recent live events and contrast the large expected crowd from Progress Wrestling. Which promotion has had the most turnover in the last seven years? What was more popular in the late 1990s: wrestling or comic books? Ronda Rousey might be coming to WWE; has Inokism come to America? And more!
