I just saw that Bruce Prichard is doing his podcast live on 2  dates at the Gramercy Theater in NYC in August.  I assume he's hitting other cities too.  They actually want $35 to see this guy.  I'd day average ticket price for a band at that venue is $25.  Capacity is 500.  I'd be shocked if he draws 200.

Is it a solo event? I could see that concept during a Wrestlemania weekend or some wrestling convention, but as a stand alone event it seems out of place.

I somewhat OD'd on his podcast.  Started listening in February and went back and listened to all of the early episodes.   $35 seems steep unless it includes meet and greet.  He's developed a big following though, so it wouldn't surprise me if he gets a nice turnout.

Nope, meet and greet/VIP is $50.

I've paid $35 for less entertaining shows. If they were within a two-hour driving distance, I'd bite for that dollar amount.

I'm pretty sure his podcast live shows have drawn more paying customers than TNA has in the past two years, lol.

Prichard's podcast got a major plug last night...from WWE!  On "Bring it to the Table", one of the topics was how there are too many wrestling podcasts.  JBL and Corey Graves both said their favorite is Prichard's "Something to Wrestle With".  JBL also said Prichard is one of his best friends in the business and he wishes he would come back to WWE, and then they showed an old pic of JBL and Prichard sitting on a motorcycle together and played Mike and Maria Kanellis' theme song "True Love".

His events are sold out, they're even adding 2nd shows on certain weekends..pretty cool to see actually. I have to give props to Conrad and him for doing this and making good coin off it, they're selling a shit ton of shirts, have good sponsors, making mad bank. If you can make good money in the wrestling industry without sacrificing your health to do it more power to you.

I like Bruce's show a lot but I'm starting to like Tony's more.

I like sound bite they play about the live show and the attendee says they are even better in person.

The problem with Tony's podcast is that the best episodes are often the ones about the 80s or early 90s.....and the kids voting for topics on Twitter want late-run WCW. Except then the episodes turn into him not knowing answers because he admittedly usually just showed up, did his job, and went home. He doesn't have insider info or fun stories about this period. He does on earlier topics.

Bruce's, I see the 3 hr+ run times and just pass. Plus some of the clips I have seen on YouTube, he blatantly still tows the company line on why WM7 moved, told a completely made up story about Rick Martel at the 88 Royal Rumble (Martel wasn't even on the card), etc.

The length of the podcasts don't bother me much as I listen to them on my commute and that is true Bruce messes something's up but for the most part he seems like he is being honest while still being a loyal WWF employee. I can understand why he doesn't talk about money but I do enjoy it when they talk about marketing strategy and sold shows or the fundamentals of the tv shows. That's the stuff I enjoy vs some of the dirt they get into. I'm not a meltzer fan but he rails a little to hard on what meltzer said or didn't say.

As far as Tony's show the episodes about the 80's and early 90's are the best but the episode about the final nitro and the post buy out meeting and such was interesting.

Interesting thing I saw today. Conrad said on Twitter that "no one cares" about the JCP topics on Schiavone's show and that the later WCW episodes have 30% more downloads.

This is disappointing, and not from an old school standpoint necessarily. Like I said earlier, the later timeline episodes are terrible. Tony clearly comes off as less interested, and he didn't spend time with the boys at that point. The show devolves into 2 hours of Conrad reading old Observers and Tony answering questions with "maybe," "I dunno", etc. Throw in Conrad making 50 or so sexual comments, and you have the episode. I'd be cool with a later WCW show if you had a guest who knew what was going on and cared.

I usually enjoy any of the Bruce podcasts that go up until I lost interest in the current product, which is around 2000.

Too bad about less interest in the JCP era for Tony's podcast, I became a fan in the mid 80s as a kid. I still remember coming across World Wide Wrestling during the spring of '86 late at night on Saturday on a slightly snowy syndicated station.

"Something to Wrestle" received a huge honor by being named "Sports Podcast of the Year" by Sports Illustrated, beating out ESPN's "30 For 30" podcast, among other heavyweights. They singled out the 3+ hour episode on Roddy Piper as the best podcast of 2017.

The Brooklyn Nets are bringing in the Bruce Prichard "Something to Wrestle With" podcast featuring the former WWE Executive and performer and co-host Conrad Thompson in for a special post-game podcast event at the Barclays Center on 1/19, just a few days before Prichard will appear (as Brother Love) at the 25th Anniversary of Raw.

The podcast was recently named the sports podcast of 2017 by Sports Ilustrated.

The live podcast will take place following the game between the Nets and the Miami Heat in the Barclays Center.

The Brooklyn Nets are selling combination tickets to the game and the podcast for $35 at this link.
