Like a House Afire (ep. 25): Lots of options out there for pro wrestling fans frustrated with WWE

New, 12 comments

Welcome to another episode of Like a House Afire, a weekly-ish video-cast that runs down some hot topics in the world of pro wrestling with opinion and analysis from yours truly.

It was a really crappy week for WWE thanks to Bill Demott, and for wrestling fans who try to enjoy the on-screen product without thinking about the business' horrible history and reputation for how it treats performers. Luckily, there are a ton of options for the wrestling fan in 2015. WWE isn't going away, but it's not hard to find alternatives. We briefly rundown the landscape, with thoughts on the current product and business outlook for TNA, Ring of Honor, AAA/Lucha Underground, New Japan and more.
