    Haha--I've listened in a few times (usually when Cornette's on), but it covers an era of wrestling that I unfortunately missed, so a lot of the content is lost on me.

    That being said, it's an excellent show, and it's insane how much effort Last puts into each episode.

    Holy shit.

    Wonder what happened. My guess would be (like Helwani a decade ago) greener pastures elsewhere.

    I had a job interview last year at Anthem / The Fight Network, and it wasn't revealed to me until the end (after a tour + basically an implied agreement to work together) that they weren't planning on paying me. Now Jarrett says the company's on life support.

    Investing in TNA when both companies were dying was the height of stupidity.

    I can’t figure out how LAW made money. Some local Canadian ads?

    Wow.

    Either layoffs or a mass exodus. It looks like Ting is gone too. Lovranski is probably next.

    Yeah—I think they were getting a good licensing fee when they were on Sirius, and then when they came back to terrestrial radio on TSN, it was an ad-supported program.

    My guess is that the LAW probably wasn't a big revenue generator for Anthem (and likely was just sustainable enough to pay the hosts / production costs), but it's big imprint in the wrestling podcasting community was worth having it around due to its outreach.

    It was interesting when Anthem bought TNA at a time when the whole wrestling community was shitting on the company, and the awkward position that the Anthem-owned LAW was put in, but to their credit, the LAW guys told it as it was with the product. I wonder if that played a factor to what eventually led to today.

    If it hasn't grabbed you yet, give the Ric Flair episode a go.

    Im sad about the LAW because I always used to listen to RAW & SD breakdowns in the morning while watching the WWE and YT video clips. I’d maybe grab a torrent of an episode if it sounded really good. Now I won’t fucking know what’s going on without the full shit.
