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 podcast returns to the usual three-part format this week! For The Lock-Up host Tim Kail talks about Stephanie McMahon and Vince McMahon undermining Roman Reigns' push by behaving like cartoonish, bemused villains rather than sincere, vengeful overlords. For The High Spot Tim examines the importance of continuity in fiction; how a lack of continuity negates the audience's emotional investment but also how too much focus on continuity (as seen in modern comic book cinema) negates creativity. For The Finish Tim shares a personal story about how a conversation with his dad revealed why imagination and creativity is more important than adhering to a rigid set of narrative guidelines.
