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.
