  • Big fan of wrestling and big fan of entrepreneurial podcasts, so it’s really cool to hear Justin not only ask all the basic wrestling background questions to his guests, but also ask about how/what they are doing to market themselves as athletes. I highly recommend the Lauren Burroughs podcast!

  • There are a lot wrestling podcasts that do a great job of covering content as well as doing interviews at tournaments. BASCHAMANIA is a piece of the puzzle that has been missing in the wrestling world! He hosts great athletes, coaches or prior wrestlers that have had an impact on our sport through an authentic interview...

    Jacob Kasper Just Made His WWE/NXT In-Ring Debut And It Was Awesome

    One month before Covid wreaked havoc on the world, on February 18th, 2x NCAA All-American Jacob Kasper joined me on Episode 36 of BASCHAMANIA.   We  had planned on recording for an hour, as is typical, but ended up going  an hour and 45 minutes.  Why'd we go so long?

    Agencies, Commercials, & Local Biz; NIL Continues!

    Right on cue, the Name, Image and Likeness activity is picking up, as we're exactly one week since NIL went into effect and it's getting better by the day. As I had said both in a previous article, and on the BASCHAMANIA Podcast, deals take time to execute.  When you have negotiating taking places, attorneys reviewing contracts, compliance departments reviewing deals and content being created, among other sponsorship activities, things just take time!

    Ready or Not, NIL Is Happening Next Week

    It’s happening. On July 1, many college wrestlers are going to be able to leverage their name, image, and likeness. But, until it rolls out (and probably even after), there are a lot of questions and speculations around the rollout. I’ve seen some of the guidelines for a few schools and there are components here that seem pretty universal, so I wanted to dive in and discuss at least those elements.
