This show is basically 2 hours of Side Show Bob fantasy booking wrestling with the occasional guest. T
A true fan & last professional broadcaster
Sam Roberts is a hard worker and has great guests & opinions on the wrestling business. Sam Roberts knowledge and passion for professional wrestling is second to none. Happy to see him on wwe network as well @MattCostigan -twitter
Dude knows nothing about wrestling. How many bumps have you taken? You’re a waste of time and should please stop talking wrestling.
What the hell were you thinking Sam?!
I’ve been listening to the Notsam wrestling since 2016. Great podcast, fast paced, great top-tier guests, and very positive. Y’all should go watch his Annoying Eater series on his YouTube channel NotSam Wrestling, the guy is a mess!
Always a fan
Sam always has great takes. He always tries to see things from a positive perspectve rather than just crapping on every booking decision but he also doesn't hold back criticism where its needed. Its mostly WWE focused; I'd prefer a little more AEW content as well but I'm a mark, what can I say.
Hard to listen to
He’s just really hard to listen to. His voice reminds me of a 15 year old talking to his juvenile friends about wrestling. No substance. Not worth the time to listen to.
Used to be a good listen, now this guy is just a mark for himself. Finally unsubscribing.
Great podcast for WWE Fans, but not AEW,NJPW,etc. Which isn’t bad. Not Sam doesn’t take wrestling too seriously, which is great because I do agree that wrestling is an escape from reality. I like that he’s very positive, even when the whole world isn’t.
Podcast went downhill fast
I used to be a big fan of this podcast (my 5 star review from a few years ago is below) but ever since Sam was hired by WWE he has gone from being optimistic to flat out refusing to say ANYTHING the wwe does is less than stellar (during a time where the creative is awful) But as soon as AEW or any non WWE topic comes up (which almost never happens) his super positive attitude disappears and has plenty negative to say. That’s prob what annoys me most, he claims to love pro wrestling but he doesn’t, he loves WWE. And love might not even be the right word cause you can still point out flaws or ways to improve things you love but his blind optimism is so corny and cringe to listen to (like actually cringe, not how kids use it these days) He’s like the opposite of Jim Cornette but equally as annoying to listen to. I guess more cause even though I don’t believe anything JC is saying at least he’s funny once in a blue moon. Also he won’t shut up about his Patron. No one cares about your discord room, Sam. OLD REVIEW: Him and Katie are great together and even with just sam it's great stuff. One of my favorite wrestling podcasts. Look forward to it every week. The only downside is his fantasy booking is so good I'll often get mad at WWE when they do something worse.
Of all the podcasts I’m subscribed to, I find myself looking forward to Notsam Wrestling the most. Wrestling is my escape and as such I prefer to enjoy it. Sam always brings a positive slant to what’s going on. Even if what’s going on in the world of WWE isn’t the greatest creatively, Sam can be trusted to point out what good could come out of it in the future.
Wrestling should be fun! I enjoy watching because it’s an escape from reality. When twitter is always too negative, Sam Roberts is able to put the weeks happenings in a fun entertaining recap. Great interviewer as well.
just as god-awful as you can imagine
sam's knack for over-explaining every happening, every joke, every THING imaginable is on parade in this solo venture, done in his basement and surrounded by his collection of little wrestling dolls. on his daily radio show done with jim norton, he kills every shred of humor by dissecting what the joke means. no thank you sam, i'll get my wrestling news elsewhere.
Very wwe bias. He hypes up even the worst segments and wwe can do no wrong. I’ll watch the network if I wanna hear propaganda
Greedy Not Sam Greedy
Moving the Thursday show after having it as a free option just reeks of greed. It would have been different if you started it on there but you didn’t.
Boring nothing happening podcast. He gets a check to work for tha E and it shows. So many wrestling podcasts out there are more worth your time. Nice enough guy but you can tell what side his bread is buttered on.
Old school nwa fan.
Sam pulling his topical weekly show after splitting the pod into 2 episodes instead of 1 and only giving the interview show on here that no one likes and trying to force people to pay for his Patreon trash is absolute Bush league small time greediness. Not to mention the show itself has turned into 45% name dropping and putting himself over, 45% sucking off WWE despite terrible booking, and 10% actual analysis and thoughtful conversation. Would give 0 stars if I could. Absolutely unsubscribing.
Great pod. Thanks Sam.
Always interesting with great content, I love to listen while on my way to work in the morning and stay up to date with all the news and info “Scoops” provides!!!
Been a fan since day 1. Thanks so much for staying consistent. Every week no hiccups. Through a maternity ward, airport, hotel bathroom, etc.... Mahalos Sam 🤙🏽
Interviews are great, solo content is awful
Scoops Roberts calls it both ways, so he’s always right. Also, for the love of everything good in this world, please improve the bluechew ads, I wretch every time I hear them.
Personally, I love the podcast show: Going In Raw, but this Sam Roberts podcast is okay too. What annoys me is the WWE peen stuck in his mouth; Other than that, the content is good.
One of my favorite wrestling podcasts!
This is one of my favorite wrestling podcasts to listen to. Top 3 for sure!
Ugh, the whole “Scoops” thing is getting old
Don’t strain yourself patting yourself on the back there Sam
It’s fine on tv. But it’s killed the podcast for me. Unsubscribed. Maybe I’ll watch some interviews on the YouTube but the character playing on the podcast is awful. Just an opinion
Not Sam Wrestling
This podcast is the best WWE podcast ever
Needs a name change
This should be called the Sam Roberts WWE Fancast. This used to be a stellar podcast. But as he got more gigs with WWE his criticism of their product gets close to non-existent. He too often elevates terrible ideas and alludes to the fans being dumb if they don’t like it. Meanwhile he likes to take backhanded shots at other companies which seems kind of dumb for someone that should theoretically be impartial. Maybe they’ll move his show over to the WWE podcast network. It’s still a good podcast if you just look at it for being a WWE show and not really a wrestling podcast.
This guy JO
Just heard the 11/7/19 podcast where he (not sarcastically!) said Roman Reigns should turn heel and join a faction led by Baron Corbin. I then went immediately to the unsubscribe button and everyone else should also.
Excellent Content but Sam Roberts...
Seems like he could easily be convicted of sexual assault. That hair and that voice scream suppressed emotions ready to explode at any moment. Highly Recommended!!!
You ruined crown jewel!
You ruined crown jewel for me and so many others who couldn’t watch live with the title of the latest episode! Thanks a lot buddy! Sure I’m not the only one who’s unsubscribing!!!!! 🖕🏽
5 stars with some tech help.
Sam is a great interviewer. The guests are great, and Sam’s insight in to what is going on in wrestling is thought provoking. The audio is down right bad sometimes. Driving with your hand on the volume to turn up when the guest speaks and down again for when Sam speaks is not fun.
Wow awesome interview with Braun Strowman keep up the great job last professional broadcaster !!!!!
Your fake heel gimmick is cringe.... like you better when you don’t act like a cocky tough guy
Monday night raw ep1
you forgot US Open when they may show it later in week
Sam is a true company man
i wish he would say what he feels but he doesnt want to offend the man who signs the paycheck. Still a good show
The Yellow and Black Attack
Love the show...
Love the state of wrestling but Sam you need a co-host for it to keep you on track. You’ve been going on extra long rants repeating yourself far too often. That being said I love your interviews and you’ve got me interested in Indy guys I never even heard of.
Simply the best
I’ve been a fan since Day One Ish (okay, episode 4). Sam produced the show through the eyes of a wrestling fan, one who actually LIKES wrestling. Other podcasts I’ve stopped listening to because of so much negativity. Sam always finds the positive. He’s well organized, and he’s one of the best interviewers on the planet. Sincerely. A notSam shill

Love this podcast
Guys and gals keep giving this podcast 5 why is this show a 4.0 needs no be more love it !
I was tired of listening to low quality bo bo wwe channels. Found this and really gave me something to do with my free time and actually really good content!
Stop trying to be a heel
I’ve unsubscribed. When you stop trying to force being a heel, both on your show and on the kickoff shows, maybe I’ll be back.
Love the content on every episode. State of wrestling is the best.
I’ve been listening to Sam for years. Back when he was in the O&A show, when he had his own show and he always delivers. Love the heavy WWE content and he’s just awesome. Thanks Sam!!!!
Falsely advertises free content
then directs listeners to pay on patreon to access it
Sam has great insight on WWE. If you want a positive spin on WWE, listen to this show. If you want anything positive about wrestling outside of WWE or something negative about WWE, you probably won’t hear it here.
THEE, best wrestling podcast
I am in my mid-thirties and I have been a pro-wrestling fan dating back to when I was ten years old. I have seen almost every WWE pay-per-view to date. I always look for post match discussion and analysis online, and I have to say that Sam Roberts has one of the best podcast/shows today for true wrestling fans. Sam is truly brilliant in his post match analysis and "state of wrestling" discussions. I don't believe that Sam is signed with WWE, but he should be...as part of the creative/booking/writing team. I recommend the most recent podcast that was put up right after the 2016 Survivor Series PPV. Sam has a great mind for the wrestling business, and although his voice may be high and squeaky at some times, his overall delivery is spot-on!
Four Stars To Match His Four Fingered Ludvig Borga
I have been listening for a while, but I have now found a way better podcast, The Major Wrestling Figure Podcast! I had no idea the I was listening to someone who had such a trashy wrestling figure collection! A missing finger on your Ludvig Borga??!! How can this be? Go check out Matt and Brian, also known as WWE Superstars Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins on The Major Wrestling Figure Podcast for a truly entertaining look at everything your childhood should have been!
Dennis Falcone without charm or talent
Milquetoast, 40 degree days, plain rice, Ford Focus, Rascal Flatts, Rene Goulet, the New York State Thruway and Joanne Fabrics...all of these things are more interesting than Sam Roberts who should be starring in the Laundry Folding Channel.
Best interview with Joe I’ve ever heard! Good job Sam! Keep it up!
