The renowned WWE brand needs almost no introduction. Since the 80s Vince McMahon's wrestling powerhouse has entertained viewers of all ages, showcasing its flamboyant characters, awesome acrobatics, outrageous plots, and complicated interpersonal conflicts. Indeed, the program can be likened to a sports soap opera; each week introduces more drama and inevitable retribution, both inside and outside the ring.
Considering that WWE Raw, SmackDown, Superstars, and NXT add up to approximately five and a half hours of programming each week, the outfit could arguably run its own cable network. With so much action occurring a busy student or laborer might not have time to keep up with their favorite wrestlers. There is a solution, however: WWE AfterBurn, an hour-long recap of recent matches, feuds, and WWE news.
Each episode SmackDown's play-by-play commentator Jack Korpela condenses hours of excitement into a mere 60 minutes. While there is no substitute for the real thing, AfterBurn quenches a preoccupied fan's wrestling thirst. Diehard WWE aficionados who watch its programs faithfully will similarly enjoy AfterBurn, giving them a supplementary dose of wrestlers such as Edge, Alberto Del Rio, Rey Mysterio, Kofi Kingston, and even hall of famers like Jerry 'The King' Lawler.
