Wrestlenomics is a podcast brand produced by Chris "Mookie" Harrington and Brandon Howard Thurston, talking the business of professional wrestling.

We produce Wrestlenomics Radio, a weekly 60- to 90-minute podcast, available for free on major podcast platforms; and Wrestlenomics Premium — exclusively for patrons — a weekly, more in-depth, premium podcast, with completely different content from the free show.

We're the premiere source for business analysis of pro-wrestling. We cover all aspects related to the industry including business deals, metrics, talent development, financial reports, new media, legal actions, match statistics and more, on companies such as World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW), Ring of Honor (ROH), Impact, Lucha Underground, various indies and other businesses.

This would not be possible without our informed listeners who contribute many questions, insights, concerns and content suggestions. It's our pleasure to produce Wrestlenomics, and your financial support makes it possible.

The Wrestlenomics brand was founded in 2013 by Chris, who has been podcasting since the launch of “Indeed Wrestling Weekly” in 2005. “Wrestlenomics Radio” was re-launched as a weekly podcast in 2017 with Chris and Brandon as co-hosts and is supported by generous patrons from around the world. "Wrestlenomics Premium" has been produced since January 2018. 
 
Chris covers wrestling business and legal news throughout the week on Twitter (@mookieghana) and has published numerous long-form digital and magazine pieces focusing on wrestling and business financials outlooks. Check out Chris’s work at indeedwrestling.com. He lives in Saint Paul, Minnesota with his wife Alissa and their two dogs. On the weekends, he performs short-form improv with Jesters Comedy Improv.

Brandon is an independent wrestler, wrestling trainer and writer living in the Buffalo, New York area. Since 2015, his award-winning written work has focused on wrestling business, new media and the modern wrestling audience. See samples of his work at brandonthurston.com. He’s on Twitter at @BrandonThurston.
