Podcasts continue to be all the rage on the Internet, growing in popularity by leaps and bounds every month — especially amongst pro wrestling fans. With wrestling fans always hungry for more info, interviews and commentary, we decided to pick the five best pro wrestling podcasts out there right now. Mic check, one, two...three!
When it comes to top-of-the-line entertainment in pro wrestling podcasts, Stone Cold's The Steve Austin Show reigns supreme for many reasons. Being that most of his interviewees spent time around the Texas Rattlesnake, Austin is able to get them to deliver candid accounts and tales that only he knows of. Those narrations jump through listeners' headphones and only enhance the podcast experience.
Add that to the fact that he'll ask anyone anything and this podcast is one hell of a listen. His podcasts with Vince McMahon and Triple H stand out as some of his best work, but dig into his archive of well- over 200 episodes and you'll find gems with him flapping gums with the likes of Ric Flair, Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff, too. Great, great stuff.
Jim Ross doesn't work for the WWE anymore, but he remains the official voice of pro wrestling. His exchanges with Shawn Michaels and Superstar Billy Graham, in particular, are flat out excellent. Not only is Ross sharp with a dry wit, he also has a staggering wrestling knowledge that adds for the validity of his interviews. If only he would get as excited on the podcast as he did with the end of calling a pay per view...'OH MY GOD!'
Like a straight shooter, who's not going to hold back? Give Vince Russo's podcast a try. As a former writer for the WWE, WCW and TNA, Russo's wealth of experience shows with each and every episode. He's controversial, for sure, but his podcast is guaranteed to never be boring.
The former legendary manager and fixture on the pro wrestling scene brings profanity-laced conversations with some of the best in the business to his podcast. Raunchy, real and uncut. Cornette curses...a lot, but there is also a lot of knowledge in between those profane tirades.
Chris Jericho got bit by the podcast bug a few years ago with his first guest being none other than Stone Cold Steve Austin. Now, in a way, they're competing for podcast supremacy. (Watch out for the Stunner, Jericho). Ever the talker with plenty of personality, Jericho has had stellar, in-depth conversations with the likes of Edge, Bret Hart, Rob Van Dam and more. He also interviews plenty of musicians, actors and comedians for those looking for more variety.
His latest upload has him going back and forth with "The Lunatic Fringe" Dean Ambrose and before that he interviewed Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan. Ayatollah of Rock 'n' Rolla, baby! Between his podcast and Stone Cold's, especially, we have two of the best that the web has to offer. Talk...is...Jericho! But hasn't it always been?
