How much money do I spend on wrestling?

If this blog were more popular, I would have a poll and ask readers how much money they spend on wrestling per month. With that in mind, if we take away merchandise (I buy t-shirts or other merchandise that “speak to me”-I’ll actually list that one day), I spent more than $50 per month.

 

$10 for WWE Network

$10 for PWTorch

$10 for Wrestling Observer

$7 for ROH Ringside Membership

$8 for New Japan World

$7.50 for Prowrestling.net

 

For a freelance writer (which I am) who may go a while without any assignments, $50 is a lot, but I could not imagine going without any of the above memberships or subscriptions. I do not go to wrestling shows. I could say that my cable bill is part of the money I spend on wrestling, but I have cable (or DISH to be more specific) for more than just wrestling. With that said, I am not sure I would pay for DISH or any cable/satellite if it was not for wrestling so it certainly could be included, which would make it $150 per month (I watch just enough non-wrestling television that I won’t for the sake of this article).

 

As far as order of importance (since I’m here)

  1. WWE Network
  2. Wrestling Observer
  3. PWTorch (because of Todd Martin and Bruce Mitchell)
  4. New Japan World
  5. net
  6. ROH Ringside membership (it’s last because I can follow ROH easily with the free membership. I only have a subscription because I get discounts on Pay per Views and there are times where I want to watch the ROH show early in the week)

Adjustments to my viewing habits

I watch ROH every week now that it is on Destination America. I live in New York so I didn’t get a chance to watch the syndicated version on television. I read the spoilers, but I never watched the show on television even though I could have watched it on the ROH website-I just didn’t. Now I do watch every week and I watched the PPV on Friday.

Just wanted to give an update because I read my first “real” post and I saw that ROH wasn’t mentioned-because at the time I didn’t watch.
