Re: For those that have been in a ring - Does it change the way you evaluate wrestling?

I think there's a lot of overly-traditional advice dispensed as gospel by those who have legit excellent reputations but who have not accounted for and who have little understanding of how wrestling has changed in recent decades (in fact many of them decry the changes and seem to think we can put t...

Re: For those that have been in a ring - Does it change the way you evaluate wrestling?

“Don’t steal my crowd heat from my main event!” An ideology that contributed to WCW’s death. Normally I'd be inclined to agree, but they went 20 minutes over and did a 45-minute match with wild spots all over the building. Main Event hit the ring right around the show usually would end. Either way,...

All of this.

Re: For those that have been in a ring - Does it change the way you evaluate wrestling?

I can't speak for anyone else but it definitely has changed the way I watch/enjoy/analyze matches. I am still able to turn my brain off and enjoy dumb/illogical wrestling from time to time but I am more likely to pick things apart if I ever find myself just watching as a fan (especially at indie sho...

Re: Get Weird with "3-2-1 Battle"

On behalf of 3-2-1, I can say that we honestly appreciate the plug John. Tonight is on paper, one of our biggest shows yet with Darby Allin, B-Boy and Jeff Cobb all appearing. Should be a lot of fun and I hope people check it out, whether it's in person in Seattle or live on Twitch at 9:00pm PST.

Re: Wrestlenomics Radio: WWE wellness policy, illnesses before TLC, Powerbomb.tv & SMV partner

Great show as always.

Just a question out of curiosity, my apologies if it's been answered before as I'm a relatively new listener, but do you guys know if there are any WWE investors who listen to the show?

Re: Wrestlenomics Radio: Dave Lagana on NWA, New Media Landscape

Your guys' show has grown to become the highlight of my week when it comes to podcast listening. I was a little worried that Lagana's addition would mess up your dynamic but this was a really great show as always. This might be a random question, but are you pro wrestler Daniel Makabe who faced Tim...

Re: VOW Flagship: King of Pro-Wrestling, Hell in a Cell, WON HOF & more!

Long time reader & lurker of this board. I finally felt compelled to create an account in order to post that I can 100% relate to Joe on the whole "need to shower after using the toilet" perspective. Otherwise, good show as always.
