Play episode · 57 min

TV production for WWE likely just got more expensive with the introduction of the Thunderdome. Brandon Thurston explains his latest estimate of WWE finances for the remainder of the year.

Plus, it was an unusual week in TV viewership as Raw and Smackdown did their biggest audiences in months, NXT ran unopposed, and AEW was preempted into other time-slots.

Which Japanese wrestling companies are profitable? Not many of them, and New Japan greatly outpaces them all.

Finally we close with a prediction about what the wrestling business will look like a few years from now.
