Madison’s Mindset: As mentioned above this is the first WWE podcast that they have operated. While previous podcasts such as the Stone Cold Podcast and Talk is Jericho have had editions on the network this will be solely operated by the company.
Something Else to Wrestle With by Bruce Prichard did share a great deal on the past. In doing this it is interesting as it does allow for the company to peel back the curtain and reveal things that would normally not be shared on broadcast TV. Will we hear things that are normally not admitted to? It will certainly be a fun listen.
