Professional wrestling is an art. The Work of Wrestling is dedicated to exploring that simple truth. Host & author Tim Kail analyzes wrestling matches, explicates promos, reviews pay-per-views, and shares personal stories in an effort to provide pro-wrestling the in-depth arts criticism it genuinely deserves.

The very first episode of The Work of Wrestling podcast! In part one, "The Lockup", host Tim Kail reviews the latest episode of NXT, discussing how a Blue Pants roll-up victory and a good Charlotte promo made him pop and why. In Part Two "The High Spot" (10:29), the most basic truth of professional wrestling storytelling is examined - the importance of distinguishing between "pro-wrestling" terminology and "sports entertainment" terminology explained. And lastly, in Part Three "The Finish" (31:25), Tim's old college buddy and fellow wrestling fanatic shares a touching story about how pro-wrestling "shaped his life". Thank you for listening.
