The Book of Wrestling

On Monday, WWE and The Ringer announced a Spotify-exclusive podcast called "The Book of Wrestling" -- a 25-episode series with each focusing on a specific catchphrase and related stories from the Attitude Era.

Hosted by David Shoemaker, the series will launch on Monday, April 4th, with new episodes dropping every weekday for five weeks.

The concept is based off Ringer founder Bill Simmons' The Book of Basketball which has also moved over from book to podcast form. Shoemaker is an author and the host of the weekly Masked Man Show on The Ringer/Spotify.

From the release: "David will talk to the people who either played a part in creating the catchphrase or were there to witness its impact on the wrestling community."

While a full episode guide wasn't released, several mentioned in the press release were "Curtain Call," "Austin 3:16," "Bret Screwed Bret," and "Suck It."

The two sides first announced a partnership in August 2021.

Here's the trailer for the series:
