W2Mnet.com was founded by several people and is the culmination of something that began in the summer of 2012 when Sean Garmer and Gary Vaughan were part of a friend’s website, where there was an official podcast. Gary and Sean decided to start Wrestling 2 the MAX, or W2M for short. W2M was intended to be a sister podcast to that show. The podcast made a name for itself because Gary and Sean covered what others didn’t. Starting with WWE Smackdown, the early days of Full Sail NXT, Impact Wrestling, and some news. The show blossomed and continued covering more shows venturing out to WWE PPV‘s and WWE RAW as well. After that, they took things to a new podcast host in Spreaker and got on social media and Youtube, brought out the W2M EXTRA, and Sean also took over what would become the new flagship show, Video Games 2 the MAX too.
2015 is perhaps the biggest year of all, as it led to the creation of the W2M Network. With the growth of said Network and the addition of many shows ranging from wrestling and football to entertainment and gaming, a decision was made late in August 2016 to maximize that growth and create this website using those four aforementioned pillars. It’s also where the “net” comes into the name to make W2Mnet. Ultimately, this is a digital representation of a network that includes so many different genres. It is also a place with many different personalities and hopefully, it can continue to grow and add more of them. This website not only gives these podcasts a home but also a place for those personalities to flourish with writing, video, or other platforms entirely.
So, whether you are an aspiring writer or someone that’s always just wanted to have a platform to speak your mind on something you love. Please visit our “Join the W2M Network” or “Write for Us” links for more information on how to join the staff.
* We are proud and honored to have a great group of writers, contributors, and podcasts hosts. However, the following people are the ones who keep the website going on a daily basis. Whether it be in work that goes directly on the website, through podcasts, or behind the scenes. *
