@KingOfPodcasts, host of The Wrestling is Real podcast and the Broadcasters podcast offers real-time commentary on everything from digital and established media (music, movies, tv, radio, and his guilty pleasure of pro wrestling) and topics worthy of water cooler talk.
Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman Assigned to Resucitate RAW and Strengthen Smackdown Live. KOP explains how the magnitude of this news alone will stimulate viewer interests. He also discusses how each of these new executive directors will have to work with a new canvas and new stars on like some of the familiar faces they had relied on in the past. Plus, is this enough to bring the momentum back into WWE favor and away from AEW?
KOP ponders the mindset of WWE Superstars once they Seek Out New Stomping Grounds. Does the company realize the chip on the shoulder of these wrestlers and how they are not going to be looking to come back to the company but instead supposedly will find greener pastures somewhere else the next time around
WWE Superstars are waiting out to Join AEW. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reports in a cryptic message via his paywall news site on a podcast that many WWE wrestlers are interested in leaving WWE to AEW.
KOP discusses how the recent news cycle has created a Cancel Culture in the Dominican Republic. Does the mainstream media realize how their quest for clickbait is crippling the tourism and thus the residents pockets?
The Real Reason US Radio Doesn't Pay Performers or Master Tape Owners Like Everyone Else. KOP discusses from an article titled US Radio Stations Don't Pay Performers or Master Owners. They Want to Keep It That Way.
The story explains that In the US, terrestrial radio stations don’t pay a performance royalty in connection with master recordings. In fact, they’ve never paid one, even though they use those recordings to make themselves rich. While everybody else pays a performance royalty in connection with musical compositions—the royalties collected by performing rights organizations like ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, and GMR on behalf songwriters and publishing companies—performers and master owners are left out in the cold.
KOP asks if this is why terrestrial radio always lags behind digital streaming when it comes to new music.
KOP is reviewing the AEW Double or Nothing response. Lots of wrestling writers , podcasters and fans are nitpicking and stripping down every little details to criticize this first PPV. KOP brings in his perspective on how he wants to handle the introduction of AEW into the conversation.
KOP opens up on his feelings on the conformity created and fostered by Social Media, Dating Apps and Making Friends. KOP explains even with his success and his shortcomings he wished he could still find someone like-minded. He also talks about how his cynicism and his commitment to live to work justifies his lack of socializing and dating acting like someone he's not.
KOP briefly reviews John Wick 3, and uses the movies narrative of the high table hierarchy. He talks about how Howard Stem and Michael Weatherly have chosen to atone for past mistakes. Regardless if they were pushed into doing it or they did it on their own accord kop explains why it is so damaging and so reckless to give in to political correctness social justice and cultural and political conformity Thus they are bowing to the high table of conformity.
WWE Creative Needs Climate Change. KOP acknowledges WWE is trying to address ratings and attendance issues as reported in their conference call to their shareholders. KOP explains how their efforts do no't address that a climate change needs to be made to make the creative team and the writers more effective in writing storylines outside of the boiler room that WWE has created.
