Professional wrestling is an art. The Work of Wrestling Podcast is dedicated to exploring that simple truth. Host Tim Kail, Editor In Chief at www.workofwrestling.com, analyzes wrestling shows, explicates promos, examines social issues, and shares personal stories about pro-wrestling's cultural merit in over 100 episodes of thoughtful arts criticism.

There are six common criticisms leveled at the push of Jinder Mahal.

1) He looks like he's using steroids. 2) The WWE is just pushing him to appeal to the Indian market. 3) He's bad on the mic. 4) He can't wrestle. 5) He was jobbing just a week before his push so there was no build. 6) He just doesn't deserve it.

Do any of them hold water? Do these criticisms represent an earnest point of view on the part of angry pro-wrestling fans who want the shows to improve?

Work of Wrestling host Tim Kail certainly doesn't think so, and he goes through each of these six points in detail to arrive at a rather simple conclusion. It's a conclusion many members of the pro-wrestling community are already familiar with, while others either refuse to see it or are content to keep their heads buried in the sand.
