Our Editor's Take

Who says pro wrestling is fake? The Busted Open podcast presents a discussion on everything in and out of the ring. Sports radio host Dave LaGreca covers fanfare and industry updates. Episodes also feature rotating cohosts from the storied annals of wrestling. Together the crew swap trade secrets, speculate on the business of the sport and dissect the craft beneath it all.

Highlight moments include Chris Jericho's savvy explanation of why he signed with AEW. There are countless takedowns and breakdowns on the legacy of Vince McMahon. And there are contemporary perspectives, as well. For instance, WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray analyzed CM Punk's locker room drama for the show as it was happening.

Unrehearsed and packed with unique insight, Busted Open draws on decades of wisdom. LaGreca first headed a radio show about wrestling during his stint at NFL Radio back in 2009. Over a decade later, the show settled into a slot on satellite radio. Now the podcast gives LaGreca a place to carry on his work.

Most wrestling fans will find something to love in the archives of Busted Open. It's a comprehensive discussion on the art of wrestling and the industry that promotes it. Episodes are usually three hours long. But listeners with limited time can hear daily podcast clip compilations in mini-episodes that run an hour or less.
