What is Inside the Ropes, anyway?
ITR is one of the oldest fan-created wrestling podcasts in existence! It started in 2012 as a weekly podcast hosted by Kenny McIntosh and Robert Duffin. The show has grown and changed over the years, and we now offer multiple shows per week covering news, Raw, Smackdown, and other wrestling goodness!

Why do you want money for a free podcast?
Unfortunately, producing a free podcast costs money. Web hosting, bandwidth, audio equipment, Internet connections… none of these things are free, and as much as this show is a labor of love, we could use your help to keep it going and make it even better!

Other than the satisfaction of helping out the show, do I get anything for pledging money?
Of course! While we’d never turn away money given out of pure generosity, we feel our VIP patrons deserve some extra content. You’re welcome to give any amount you feel comfortable with (anything helps!), but we have some rewards laid out for certain donation amounts. The reward categories are always subject to change—for the better! We’ll never take away rewards we’ve given in the past, but plan to add more content as time goes on.

Are Patreon donations going to affect the free content we’re used to receiving every week!
NO! We have no plans to take away any of the content we put out now. You’ll still be able to hear the Raw Rundown, Smackdown Summary, Retro RAW Rundown, and more absolutely free. Any content for our patrons is above and beyond our normal output as a way to say thank you for your generosity!

Can I change the amount I pledge from month to month or am I committed to stay at a certain level?
The nice thing about Patreon is that it's super easy to change how much you want to give from month to month. You can even pledge for a month and cancel altogether if you just want to make a one-time contribution; we appreciate anything you're willing to give!

That means if you normally pledge $5 per month but want to request a VIP special, you can change to the $50 level for just one month to get your reward and then go back down to your normal $5 the next month.

THANK YOU
$1 or more per month
By pledging $1 a month to us, you're throwing us a little thank you to show that you care about us (with cash)


Not only do you have our sincere gratitude, you'll also get:

-Access to one of our favorite episodes in the history of ITR: the infamous WRESTLEMANIA 6 review with Robert and Kenny. It's irreverent ITR banter at its finest; Sondra still cries with laughter every time she listens.

-Sondra's show notes for the Retro Raw Rundown and Retro PPV's. Some weeks may be more complete than others, but there are usually at least a few theories and observations that she forgets to mention on the show!

THE MID-CARD PACKAGE
$3 or more per month
Congratulations and welcome to ITR's mid card package where you get some awesome perks for your $3 a month. In addition to the Wrestlemania 6 show & Sondra's notes you'll also get:


- Access to a vault of full-length ITR interviews! We'll be adding at least one interview per month, and new donors will have access to every single interview posted. We've had guests ranging from Bruno Sammartino to Vince Russo to Jerry Jarrett, and their stories are fascinating. (there's also THREE HOURS of Ahmed Johnson if you're in the mood to self harm)

- You'll get the FULL between 90min and TWO HOUR reviews of the Non Big-5 WWE PPV events. This means that over the year you'll get 7 Podcasts with KENNY, DAVID AND SONDRA together (Gang Bang style) as they review The February show, Backlash, Extreme Rules, Hell In A Cell, TLC and Clash Of Champions.

THE POWER SLAM PACKAGE
$4 or more per month
In addition to the Mania 6 review, interviews and the 7 Dual Branded PPV reviews with the gang, you'll now have access to the one tier where you get all things FIN MARTIN!

You'll get.....


-The Power Slam Podcast at least 12 hours earlier than when it appears on the main feed.

- An exclusive Power Slam OverRun where every week for at least 15, usually 30 minutes, Fin and Kenny go over some of the topics that didn't make the main podcast.


-In the most exciting part, Fin will be writing at least two EXCLUSIVE articles for the site where he'll write about either topics on his mind, suggestions from you the pledgers or whatever else comes up. These articles will not be available anywhere else (not even on FindlayMartin.co.uk or in WrestleTalk magazine)

THE MAIN EVENTER PACKAGE
$5 or more per month
Congratulations, you've beaten all the mid-card jabronis and made it to the ITR main-event package. More content, you say? Along with the Wrestlemania 6 review, interviews, the 7 PPV reviews, Sondra show notes and ALL the Power Slam goodness, you'll get.....


- The BIG FIVE PPV reviews. That's right, the extensive reviews of Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, Money In The Bank SummerSlam and Survivor Series will all go up at the $5 level! These podcasts are our biggest of the year and we'll make sure they're available for you here on the site. (We will release the pods on YouTube three months after the show, but until then, they're reserved for the main-eventers!)

- Monthly Retro PPV Rundowns with Kenny and Sondra! The Retro RAW experience wouldn't feel complete if Sondra didn't watch the pay-per-views, so we might as well review them for our $5 backers! From WrestleMania and SummerSlam to Unforgiven and King of the Ring, we're going all out!

- VIP specials as requested by patrons who pledge $50 or more. We have at least one-two of these that we manage to get recorded a month, and they'll go up here. From event reviews, to video games retrospectives, we'll cover a variety of topics.

- The POD OF THUNDER with the Kayfabe Jobber & Oly Ossatian!

- Fave Five podcasts and other VIP specials when the occasion arises!

THE HALL OF FAME PACKAGE

This is our highest regular package and we can't thank you enough for pledging the $7 (plus Patreon's pesky charges)

THE YOU WANT TO SLEEP WITH US PACKAGE
$50 or more per month
Lets be honest, if you're paying $50 to hear us talk, there's an obsession going on.......which we're more than happy to participate in. (*** Legal note - this package is not an agreement for any form of physical affection)


Wow, you must really love us! To show how grateful we are, we want YOUR input on the show! You'll be able to request a topic for a VIP special. Want to hear us run down a pay-per-view not on our Retro viewing schedule? Analyze a particular wrestling angle? Talk about a certain wrestler's career? We're open to suggestions and so thankful for your generosity!

We try to do these as quick as we can. We ask that you send us a DM on Patreon and we'll make sure we get to it. If we don't receive a DM, we won't know what you want, although if you want to just give us $50, we will cry and love you forever.

It can sometimes take us up to 6 months, given schedules and having to watch shows so please bear with us. If you haven't heard anything please follow up with us.


*****Please note that once your $50 has been taken on the first of the month, you can go in and edit your pledge back down to your regular package. If you don't do that, Patreon will keep you up there. Message or tweet us any time with questions, we're happy to help*****
