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.

This week The Work of Wrestling podcast returns to the traditional three-part format. For The Lockup (11:55) host Tim Kail reviews the last two matches of WrestleMania 11, breaking down how Vince McMahon's obsession with celebrity comes at the expense of his roster of professional wrestlers and the stories being told. The High Spot (33:00) is a look at how the bad booking of the millennial generation has led to the perception that they are lazy, unenthusiastic, and lack personality - this is a deconstruction of a lie perpetrated on the WWE fan by the company and by many pro-wrestling journalists. For The Finish, feminist blogger and pro-wrestling analyst Scarlett E Harris submits a story about why it's better to remain an armchair critic (and a fan) than it is to work behind the scenes of a pro-wrestling promotion. If you have a story about how professional wrestling inspired you then submit to wrestlingworks@gmail.com and it will be read on the show.
