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.

The Work of Wrestling kicks off with a Paul Heyman promo reimagined as a poem. Host Tim Kail then launches into The Lock-Up (7:55) where he talks about the mastery Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar display in their performances, cutting through lesser RAW segments by representing artistic excellence. For The High Spot (23:00) Tim talks with Rachel Greenhoe, an artist who relates her experience working as a clown to the physicality of professional wrestling. In The Finish (33:45) Tim is joined by his friend Francisco LaFontaine who talks about his favorite wrestlers, matches, Beyond The Mat, and how pro-wrestling influenced him as a child.
