This week on The Work of Wrestling podcast host Tim Kail reviews the SDCC Mattell, WWE panel for The Lock Up (14:50), exploring how a modern kayfabe can revitalize professional wrestling and enhance the viewers' emotional investment. For The High Spot (23:45) Tim plays a section of his Beast in the East real-time review that got deleted, where he counters the argument that excuses RAW's woes because it's three hours and marketed towards casuals. For The Finish (41:35) Tim tells a personal story about pro-wrestling action figures, and the experience of aging beyond the magic of such toys.
