Wrestlenomics is the leading source for business analysis of the pro-wrestling industry.

Brandon Thurston (@BrandonThurston) independently operates and solely owns Wrestlenomics.

Our expertise has been sourced by publications like The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, CNN, Variety, Barron’s, Bloomberg, The New York Post, MarketWatch, Business Insider, CNBC, The Associated Press, Vice, The Hollywood Reporter, and on a nearly daily basis, various wrestling news outlets.

Since late 2021, we’ve worked closely with POST Wrestling.

The Wrestlenomics brand was originally created by Chris Harrington in 2013. Its roots trace back to as early 2005, when Chris produced the Indeed Wrestling podcast. Concurrently, he wrote about wrestling business on his influential Indeed Wrestling blog and for other wrestling media outlets.

Chris and Brandon co-hosted Wrestlenomics Radio throughout 2017 and 2018.

In early 2019, Chris stopped co-hosting the podcast when he began working full-time as an executive for All Elite Wrestling. He’s no longer involved in the operation or financing of Wrestlenomics.

Brandon contributed to Chris’s research in 2018 related to business planning for the project that eventually became known as All Elite Wrestling. Brandon has not participated in similar work following the launch of AEW in January 2019.

In 2020, early during the Covid-19 pandemic, Brandon relaunched wrestlenomics.com and the Wrestlenomics Patreon. He writes articles and records podcasts along with contributors like Chris Gullo, Jason Ounpraseuth, and Jesse Collings.

Brandon also worked as a pro wrestling trainer from 2015 to 2020 and as a wrestler from 2003 to 2021.
