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.

Tim Kail returns to The Work of Wrestling following WrestleMania just to "check in" with the listeners. He wonders whether or not the idea of fandom has fundamentally changed due to the fragmented nature of the world. He shares his impressions of the "Superstar Shakeup" which was entirely successful for SmackDown Live and not so much for RAW. He discusses at length why SmackDown Live is the stronger of the two shows. He also gives a mini-breakdown of a recent Seth Rollins promo, and asks, "What makes someone a babyface" and gives an answer inspired by his recent viewing of every Star Wars film!

He also has a special announcement for diehard listeners who are looking for a new way to support the pod!
