I've listed to a few different wrestling podcasts now and these are my thoughts:


I actually really enjoy XPac's 12360 podcast. Waltman can be irritating to listen to as he constantly stumbles over his words and forgets what he's trying to say so you get a lot of errrrr and ummmmm but overall I like that he gives a bit of a inside take on current goings on in the wrestling world. Waltman comes across as a pretty cool down to earth guy as well who seems genuinely humble about the opportunities hes had. The wrestling fan people who feature alongside him are good too giving the fan perspective.


Taz's podcast is ok, I prefer Waltman but again its good to get a guys perspective who has years of experience in the business.


The Wade Keller podcast is a good news round up with some good in depth views and opinions on the current wrestling product. I do feel Keller and his co-hosts come across a bit smarkish though.


Chris Jericho I haven't listened to that much, his is more of a guest themed podcast so I will tune in depending on how interested I am in his guest.


Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard is one of my favourites still but I do feel like hes running out of good material, I've listened to pretty much everything from the archives that interested me and the PPV themed podcasts I don't like so much, I prefer the ones where Prichard and Conrad focus on one particular talent. This is a good podcast for longterm WWE fans who enjoy a bit of nostalgia.


83 Weeks I didn't like that much. Bischoff is terrible for not remembering things and for trying to excuse his bad decisions and much of what went wrong with WCW.

There's only 3 I really keep up to date with. Right now the very best is actually one I find surprising that I even like at all, and that's Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia. Far and away the best podcast for my tastes these days.

After that are the tried and true originals, The Steve Austin Show and Talk is Jericho. Now that Austin is back, and apparently quite interested in AEW I could actually see Austin getting a job with AEW in the near future in some capacity. Whether he makes frequent guest appearances, has some kind of position on the sports analytics side of things, or something even more interesting, I expect to see Steve Austin in AEW.

Jericho, depending on the guest is just as good as the very best shows and he always has been.

I like the OSW podcast. Pretty good stuff and they do stuff on Youtube reviewing old storylines and PPV's. That and Talk is Jericho is pretty much it for me. I have been meaning to listen to Waltmans as well but the internet is so poor here I download what I can from HQ before heading into the field I keep forgetting.
Y'know what?....It's really fucking hot here in Africa. Who knew?....Well me, I have been doing this for almost 5 years

Wade Keller Podcast is my favourite. He's been in the business since he was in college in the 1980s and isn't afraid to speak his mind even if it might upset some wrestlers. You get five free shows a week too. Raw recap, Smackdown recap, Thursday chat usually with a wrestling personality or old creative person, Friday mailbag and a old interview from around five years ago to have another listen to.

Jim Ross Podcast has gone downhill so I only listen if I have nothing better to do and don't make a habit of listening regularly like I used to when I never missed an episode. Listening to his views on the current E shows and answering tweets/emails was very good. Now he shares it with the boring Conrad Thompson who's claim to fame is marrying a daughter of Naitch who isn't in the business and all they do is go over a topic from the past that I have no interest in hearing about in 2019.

The Taz Show is still a pretty decent listen. It was better years ago when it was five days a week and he had sidekicks to bounce off. Then he got a sports breakfast show so doesn't have the time these days, so we get very occasion short listens from him.

I enjoy Wade Keller purely for his intelligent insight into the business and the same of his co-hosts, however I do get a little tired of their constant WWE bashing and blatant marking out for AEW and anything non WWE. Just seems lately they are so negative about WWE even the stuff that is actually good which there is quite a lot of lately. 

My favourite two I would say are now X-Pac and Taz's podcasts. Reason being it's two guys who have been in the business a long time and have great insider knowledge and understanding of how the business works and a good old school perspective. Both have some loyalty to WWE but are not afraid to speak their minds and I love hearing their thoughts on current events in wrestling.

I've spent the better part of the past year listening to Something To Wrestle With with Bruce Pritchard (Brother Love.) I enjoy the insights getting all the behind the scenes stories on the stuff from the late 80's and 90's I remember. 

Making a complete hypocrite of myself in the process as I claim to want to think of wrestling in kayfabe. But I can't help but to watch. I guess it's called a sinful pleasure.

It's hard to be a wrestling fan and not like both sides of the story, Kon. ;)

Grilling JR has finally done a modern day episode called #AskJR where he answered tweets and emails.

Someone asked who apart from Ric Flair was a ladies man.

Surprise name he mentioned was Carlito. Apparently he did very well with some of the most beautiful women the business has ever seen during the Diva era. I know he dated Torrie in kayfabe but real life I don't remember him being linked to any of his colleagues Confused

I've listened to loads of the Something to Wrestle back catalogue and more recent podcasts that they've done. It's a great listen for nostalgic purposes for fans that watched WWE through the late 80's all through the 90's up to the early 2000's. I prefer the stuff from the 90's as I started watching in late 91 and the episodes that focus on a particular talent, I've listened to a few that cover a certain PPV event but not such a fan of those.

Conrad's obsession with how much money wrestlers were making gets a bit annoying but otherwise he and Prichard bounce off each other really well.

I've listened to a few episodes of 83 weeks and the Schiavone podcast but they don't have the same in depth knowledge as Prichard, well Bischoff does but he seems to have forgotten a lot and tends to ramble.
