If there’s a late-breaking story deemed worthy of coverage, then WrestleCopia is on the case. WCNN hopes to make Gordon Solie proud as we discuss the latest news in professional wrestling, whether it be a recap of the latest PPV, a rant on what Vince has done now, or a tribute to a recently deceased performer, we’ll be here to share our thoughts from any number of our Podcast hosts.
 
We take a look at this week in wrestling. The good, the bad, and most likely the awful. You can pretty much expect explicit language on this program given the current state of the business. Plus, Missy Does the Mail (oof, she better be careful of paper cuts). All of that, and more… This morning… on The Power Hour!
 
You pull the pin and we’ll pick up the pieces… Join hosts Ray Russell and Steven Eckstat as they take a trip down Memory Lane to wrestling history’s past as they analyze and dissect complete years of wrestling history from your favorite promotions. From Hulkamania to Mulkeymania, from the Four Horsemen to the nWo, from the Midnight Express to the Lex Express. Which promotion are they deep diving into this week? What year have they time-traveled back to now? Tune in and find out!
