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.

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 and it will be read on the show.
