No matter what you think of WWE, there is no doubt that they are very keen to jump on new technologies as they arrive. Spotify and World Wrestling Entertainment are teaming up to bring the world all of WWE podcasts, a partnership that is the result of Spotify’s recent acquisition of The Ringer.
It’s Spotify, with the announcements table!
The move should prove to be quite the defining moment for Spotify’s podcast ambitions – WWE fans tend to be a little rabid and the streaming service’s podcast exclusivity in this industry is expected to attract a good number of its. nearly a billion followers on social networks. .
The Ringer has already started on his side of the market, attending the 2021 Summer Slam in Las Vegas last weekend to record the first episodes of The ringing fight show (previously called The spectacle of the masked man.) Original content is also planned – a show, Mackmania, was announced with WWE personality Evan Mack at the helm.
Spotify Greenroom will be used for live broadcasts after major WWE Pay-Per-View events, with some of that content being turned into a podcast. Existing WWE podcasts are also slated to become exclusive to the streaming platform.
Bill Simmons, Founder of The Ringer, said, âThe Ringer is the premier destination for sports fans, and WWE has used incredible stories and iconic characters to build a global following of loyal and passionate fans, making this partnership a perfect match.
WWE President Nick Kahn added, âWe believe this collaboration will provide a podcast roster that excites existing fans while also bringing WWE content to millions of Spotify listeners. “
