Ryan Satin

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ryan Satin is an American pop culture and professional wrestling journalist. He was a producer for TMZ[1] and founded Pro Wrestling Sheet[2] which reports on professional wrestling and mixed martial arts. He has since left the site and now works for Fox Sports. He is the son of Scott Satin, a Hollywood producer and writer.[3]


After having worked for TMZ for 6 years, Satin left and founded the Pro Wrestling Sheet news site in 2015. In July 2018, Satin sold ProWrestlingSheet.com to Collider.[4] In November 2019, Satin was hired by Fox Sports and began working as a news correspondent on WWE Backstage until the show's cancellation in early 2021.[5] In March 2021, Satin started a weekly podcast called Out of Character where he interviews wrestlers about the stories behind their personas.[6]

Personal life[edit]

Satin grew up in a Jewish family.[7] Personal issues with Vince Russo resulted in Russo losing his job as a podcaster at his then platform PodcastOne in 2018. According to Russo the head of PodcastOne personally contacted Russo to offer him his show back.[8] Stephen Colletti revealed that Satin was his college roommate freshman year of college at San Francisco State University.


In 2019, Satin became the subject of criticism on social media over a story about Sasha Banks and Bayley, stating that they had thrown a temper-tantrum backstage at WrestleMania,[9] in turn leading to rumors spreading that Banks had been "crying on the locker room floor", which both women have denied.[10][11] Satin has since apologized for the incident.[12]

Awards and nominations[edit]

In 2017, he was ranked 39th on The Big Lead's list of "40 under 40 most powerful talent in sports media".[13][14][15][16][17]
