Bruce Prichard shared some details regarding the new “Something Else to Wrestle With” show that is coming to WWE Network. Prichard confirmed in a new video that he and his “Something to Wrestle With” podcast co-host Conrad Thompson will both be on the WWE Network show. Prichard said the format will be the same format that viewers get on the podcast with both men in their home offices and it will be a video version of the podcast. Prichard said the WWE Network show will be roughly 60 to 90 minutes in length. He added that the show will be starting soon “within the next couple of weeks.” Watch the video that Prichard released at Youtube.com.
Powell’s POV: Prichard said the first show will be a topic they have never discussed before and they also plan to go back and do a deeper dive on some topics they have already covered. Prichard said they will continue to drop f-bombs and it will essentially be business as usual on the podcast, which will continue to be released every Friday via the MLW Network. Prichard said they will not be edited or told to say certain things. It’s unclear whether WWE will censor the swearing or perhaps place it on a different tier of the network that allows swearing. Either way, I enjoy the podcast and it’s a wise move by WWE to add it to the network. It would be a nice addition to the regular rotation, but it could also be a strong draw if they do launch the separate tier approach that WWE executive George Barrios indicated yesterday is in the works for the network. That said, the timing of the release of the show in a couple weeks would seem to indicate that it’s going to start on the current model of the network, as Barrios did not make it seem like the tier approach will be ready within that timeframe.
