Essential Wresting

Is Wrestling Essential?

Wrestling has carved itself a niche in being the only essential sport actual running; is this good shit for the business?

Heels! Markus Murden and Chris Thompson are back, and this week, we have special guest Nick Scelsa from the Lookback Podcast. We begin by talking about the impact of the “essential” empty arena shows on the wrestling business as a whole and then transition into what we would do to fix the situation. We then delve into the ultimate rumor, would Vince McMahon sell WWE to Disney, and what would change because of it?

We also discuss our predictions and what we’re most looking forward to for WWE’s next pay per view, Money in the Bank.

Tune in and don’t forget to check out the Lookback Podcasts at the link above.

The Quarantine Dream or How Wrestling will Bounce Back

The Quarantine Dream or How Wrestling will Bounce Back

Can WWE and AEW Bounce Back after the quarantine of COVID-19?

Heels! We’re starting 2020 speaking about how COVID-19 has put the sports world into a standstill, all except for wrestling. Now is the time more than any for WWE and AEW to reach into their bags of creativity and pull out something fantastic to draw in fans, both new and old.

We also talk about how WWE has evolved over the year from both a casual and hardcore fan perspective. Can WWE’s social media presence and 24/7 Title affect an uptick in the casual audience? Is strapping a new belt onto a celebrity the answer? OR should WWE focus on creating a product with its in-house superstars?
