The weekly Recurrent Events column features the latest retro pop culture headlines. Listen to Jason and Mickey go in depth on select stories in the upcoming TRN Podcast this Tuesday. Movies, TV, Food, Video Games, Music, Toys…we’ve got you covered on all the nostalgic stuff that matters to you.
The big story this week is wrestling! I signed up for a 30-day free trial of the WWE Network this week and decided it was a good time to watch classic wrestling again. With Wrestlemania being moved to a no-audience production this year and wrestlers dropping out of the show, it’s a great time to look back at the glory days. Mickey has already released TRN’s Retro Wrestling Archives which showcases all of the content we’ve released launch day last year. Plus, Mickey and I will be featuring our favorite ’80s wrestlers on this week’s TRN Podcast AND you’ll hear the debut of a new ’90s wrestling podcast this Thursday on the TRN channel titled The House Show. The new podcast is being led by our very own Kevin Decent who also has contributed several TRN wrestling articles. There will be new wrestling-themed articles debuting this week as well, so get ready for some high-flying, elbow smashing action! If you decide to join in the fun, click the link above to signup for the free trial of the WWE Network. TRN is an official WWE affiliate so you’ll help us out while still receiving your free 30 days.
