Like a House Afire (Ep. 10) - I will pay WWE $9.99 to leave Michael Sam alone

New, 3 comments

Welcome to the delayed by burnout tenth episode of Like a House Afire, a frequent video-cast that will rundown some hot topics in the world of pro wrestling with opinion and analysis from yours truly.

Fighting through the malaise that is post-SummerSlam WWE programming, we dive into the why of their amazingly successful ploy to turn the price of the WWE Network into a catchphrase.

Here's some background on the buzz that drove this episode:
