Josh Nason's Punch-Out: Voices of Wrestling's Brandon Howard on Royal Rumble, Styles, stats

Success can't be determined by merely looking at a single number in the world of pro wrestling and it's time to rethink how we gauge success. To help navigate our way through what we know and what we should look for, we brought in the talented Brandon Howard of Voices of Wrestling for the 29th episode of Josh Nason's Punch-Out!

Brandon and Josh talked for an hour on a variety of wrestling topics like:

- His research project on RAW TV ratings, house show attendance, and the year that was 2015

- Who the best wrestler in the world when star ratings are taken into consideration and why WWE talent didn't make the top 25

- Whether he's excited for AJ Styles to come to WWE and what his leaving Ring of Honor might mean to their bottom line

- Our shared cynicism about whether WWE can get Nakamura and friends right

- What one stat/business metric he'd love to get from WWE

- HHH's sincerity (or lack thereof)

- His deep dive into social media statistics and what indy organizations can learn from it

- Why he decided to become a pro wrestler and what he learned when he first started training

- And lots more. Geek out on some wrestling business with us, will ya? (Note this show was recorded before the Wrestling Observer Newsletter awards were released.)
