Have we got a treat for you! Not only are we serving up delicious Post- KublaCon wrap up, but we have a jumbo sized interview with Tough Enough’s AJ Kirsch as well! If you are a fan of this unusually lucid reality show, I would suggest watching up to the latest episode before enjoying this week’s podcast, as there are spoilers. On that note, I’d like to thank AJ for the awesome interview, and welcome any AJ fans to our site. Bathrooms are down the hall, coffee station is right behind you. Please don’t feed the special guests.
Mike is joined on the podcast this week by Doc Atrocity, Scorpion (yes, THAT Scorpion) and Broseph Joe Brody from Oakland’s own Hoodslam for a discussion about professional wrestling on a weekend that is entirely coincidental and has no big wrestling events on it at all. They’ll discuss how a group of wrestlers goofing around with each other turned into one of the biggest drawing shows, with 1000+ packed into Oakland’s Metro Opera House every month. We’ll also break down wrestling’s macho culture in the wake of the latest training scandal, whether the internet’s passionate wrestling community is helpful or harmful to running a live show, and how interactivity and truly connecting with the fans is the future of wrestling.
