Clash of Employment

With WWE forcing its Superstars to sign new employment contracts, is the company overstepping its bounds again?

Heels! It’s your hosts Markus X. Murden and Jose Miranda back this NXT Takeover weekend with a lengthy talk about wrestling this week. WWE produced a surprisingly great show with Clash of Champions this past Sunday. But they then poorly followed it with again trying to blur the lines between employment and being an independent contractor with their Superstars.

AEW celebrates its first anniversary, and we go over some of our favorite details of their tremendous run so far. Shout out to AEW and NJPW for letting their talent breathe.

Check out the show.

Heels: In Memory of Hana, Larry, and Shad

We look back at a tough week in wrestling.

Heels! This week was a tough one, as we lost so much in our community. We lost an up and coming star in Hana Kimura, a stall worth of wrestling journalism in Larry Csenko, and WWE superstar Shad Gaspard. Please join us as we honor them. We then dive into the week in wrestling as usual. And remember, even though we’re heels, we’re still human. Be nice to each other when you can.

Essential Wresting

Is Wrestling Essential?

Wrestling has carved itself a niche in being the only essential sport actual running; is this good shit for the business?

Heels! Markus Murden and Chris Thompson are back, and this week, we have special guest Nick Scelsa from the Lookback Podcast. We begin by talking about the impact of the “essential” empty arena shows on the wrestling business as a whole and then transition into what we would do to fix the situation. We then delve into the ultimate rumor, would Vince McMahon sell WWE to Disney, and what would change because of it?

We also discuss our predictions and what we’re most looking forward to for WWE’s next pay per view, Money in the Bank.

The Quarantine Dream or How Wrestling will Bounce Back

The Quarantine Dream or How Wrestling will Bounce Back

Can WWE and AEW Bounce Back after the quarantine of COVID-19?

Heels! We’re starting 2020 speaking about how COVID-19 has put the sports world into a standstill, all except for wrestling. Now is the time more than any for WWE and AEW to reach into their bags of creativity and pull out something fantastic to draw in fans, both new and old.

We also talk about how WWE has evolved over the year from both a casual and hardcore fan perspective. Can WWE’s social media presence and 24/7 Title affect an uptick in the casual audience? Is strapping a new belt onto a celebrity the answer? OR should WWE focus on creating a product with its in-house superstars?
