About Wrestlenomics

Wrestlenomics is the leader in research and analysis on the business of professional wrestling. We're the source wrestling fans, reporters, and financial analysts turn to for insight.

Our expertise has been sourced by publications like The Wall Street Journal, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, Variety, The Wrap, New York Daily News, Vice, The Ringer, Forbes, The Hollywood Reporter, Bleacher Report, Wrestling Observer Newsletter, and many others.

We cover all aspects related to the industry including business deals, financial reports, key metrics, talent development, new media, legal actions, and more — on companies such as World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), All Elite Wrestling (AEW), New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW), Ring of Honor (ROH), Impact Wrestling, various indies, and other businesses.

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

The Wrestlenomics brand was founded in 2013 by Chris "Mookie" Harrington, who began writing and podcasting about wrestling business as early as 2005. “Wrestlenomics Radio” was re-launched as a weekly podcast in 2017 with Chris and Brandon as co-hosts. Chris's expertise is currently being tapped by All Elite Wrestling, which he's been working for since the launch of the company in early 2019. He's currently not involved in producing Wrestlenomics content, but you can still find him on Twitter at @mookieghana.

Brandon Thurston is currently the sole creator of Wrestlenomics content. He's also an independent wrestler living in Buffalo, New York. Since 2015, his award-winning written work largely focuses on the business of pro-wrestling, and has appeared on outlets like The Daily Beast, Vice Media, Seeking Alpha, Fightful, Voices of Wrestling, and others. He’s on Twitter at @BrandonThurston.
