PITTSBURGH (93.7 The FAN) - Whether or not WWE and studio wrestling belong on a sports talk show has long been debated, but when a network is willing to throw around this kind of money, you can't ignore it.

According to reports, FOX and WWE are nearing a 5-year deal worth $1 billion.

The Starkey and Mueller Show took on this topic and offerered their thoughts about scripted wrestling being worth this much money.

"I've never disputed the fact that wrestling is gigantic!" Starkey said.  "I'm not surprised at all honestly, I'm not surprised, and I'm sure that, in the end, it'll probably be worth it to them...I learned about this in newspapers when I would see which stories were most popular and I would see that pro wrestling would be among the most popular stories every single time."

When Joe asked Chris if he'd be watching, all Chris had to say was "I haven't watched in years."

We did have some fun trying to figure out what the promo reads on Thursday Night Football from Joe Buck would sound like as he tells us about all the action coming up on Friday night!
