Tim Kail is joined by friend & fellow pro-wrestling fan, filmmaker Alexander Monelli to discuss Summer Slam!

Tim & Al bring their usual blunt, thoughtful criticism to the show, pointing out what worked and what didn't.

They described why they enjoy WWE-style wrestlers & characters over indy wrestlers, pinpointing why indy-style wrestlers tend excel against WWE veterans (rather than against other indy wrestlers).

They differ on the DQ finish of the Samoa Joe/AJ Styles match, but agree on the sincerity and likability of Ronda Rousey.

The conversation is free-flowing, and easy - less concerned with match-order and more concerned with the big picture; what makes us really feel something and what makes wrestling really special.

You'll also get a nice peak behind the curtain of their recording as they end on a hopeful, personal note.
