Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard: Podcast Review

Something to Wrestle Review

A lifelong fan meets a lifelong creative executive in Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard. Vince McMahon’s long time right-hand man, Bruce Prichard recalls and retells the story of WWE history. Bruce is keen to get a little creative with his stories, but cohost Conrad Thompson refuses to let him off the hook. Each episode is a deep dive into a moment or character in the story of the WWE, which allows a litany of new stories to unfold each week.

The Hosts: Having served intermittently with the WWE from the late 80s to the early oughts, Bruce Prichard is a verified expert on wrestling. He has been in the writer’s room for some of the most iconic moments in the history of the WWE, offering a new perspective on the rise of stars like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Conrad Thompson serves as a fan insert, grounding the show in a more objective perspective. His cool demeanor is often tested, bringing out the humor in the show.

Highlights: Highlights are collected in the series “Best of” shows, but there is an obvious standout. In an early episode on Dusty Rhodes, the hosts found themselves in a heated argument about whether the WWE’s choice to clad the aforementioned star in polka dots was a joke. When Bruce holds firm that it was not, it brings Conrad to a hilarious boiling point.
