Bruce Prichard's Something To Wrestle With podcast amassed a substantial following and translated its popularity into a WWE Network show. Their season finale on CM Punk is set to air this week, which Prichard recently discussed with TV Insider.
Prichard said he didn't know anything about the defamation lawsuit between WWE's doctor Chris Amann and CM Punk except for what he read online. Since he doesn't know anything first-hand, he plans on focusing his efforts on telling the early parts of Punk's WWE career.
"I don't know anything about the court case other than what I've read online and different things like that," Prichard said. "Me trying to comment on that is no different than any other media source commenting on it. I don't know firsthand. I wasn't there for that time. I want to tell stories of Punk in his early days in WWE and the growth before he exploded.
"We covered it on the podcast, and it did really well for us. He is topical, so it was a perfect way to end the season. And if they don't pick us up for Season 2 — no, we hope to be back for Season 2. You always want to end on a high note. I think covering Punk in his early days is a high note."
Prichard has a unique deal with WWE Network. The content on Something Else To Wrestle With is theirs and they also have the final approval. He also said they get no direction from WWE Network except for a few suggestions.
"The content is ours. That's something we have final approval on. We pick the subjects, and we write it, we do it, we perform it with no direction from them. Then we give them direction with the footage, and they come back with suggestions. That portion of it is pretty neat."
