Length of the podcasts: Each episode is about one hour to two hours long.

Description: The podcasters talk about the recent matches, the relationships between the wrestlers, and share their predictions. In some episodes, they concentrate upon a specific wrestler. The overall history of the wrestler such as wins and when they have lost, memorable matches, and their “best rivals” are covered. The podcasters do use some explicit language while they discuss wrestling.

This podcast is good for both casual followers of wrestling as well as big fans. However, the hosts rely on Wikipedia or Wrestle Mania Net which is a Korean fans website for WWE quite a lot so that some fans who have visited the official website of WWE have complained about it. This podcast does have some technical issues which are mainly problems with the audio quality. In the podcast, the voice quality is not very good, which may be a positive as it seems a lot more like “normal conversation” just on the topic of wreestling.

Summary: Fan-made WWE podcast, interesting for learners of Korean who want to learn about the WWE.
