I love this show!

I love this show. I can’t remember how I originally heard about this show but I was immediately hooked by how different it was. In its presentation and outlook. There wasn’t and isn’t anything like it. Tim bears his soul on here. It doesn’t take long to see how sincere and genuine he is. Even if I don’t agree with him on everything, I always enjoy his honest take on wrestling and life. I’ll probably aways listen as long as he is producing content.

Professional wrestling is an art

Tim Kail knows that so much goes into wrestling beyond what we see on the surface. His thoughtful analysis makes me feel like wrestling could be taught in schools alongside great works.
