WOW - EP134 - Battleground Review 2017
< 1 day ago
Work of Wrestling host Tim Kail returns to review the latest SmackDown Live pay-per-view Battleground. He covers every match with his usual blend of pro-wrestling enthusiasm and constructive criticism, calling it like he sees whilst enjoying most of the show. What was the best match of the night? How exactly should the WWE be presenting and booking Shinsuke Nakamura? What was great about the women's 5-way Elimination match, but what could have made it even better (hint - it's MORE TIME!)? While the AJ Styles vs Kevin Owens match was technically proficient and indicative of brilliant wrestling, why did it feel like something was missing? Is John Cena too good for Flag Matches (spoiler alert: the answer is a resounding YES!). Why has Tim changed his mind about Mike Kinnelis, but not changed his mind about backstage segments? And, lastly, why was the Punjabi Prison match way better than it needed to be? All of this and more are addressed on this new episode of The Work of Wrestling podcast.

A different kind of wrestling podcast
This podcast is for the creative smark who wants to see the narrative of WWE wrestling change to a better product. Tim's passion comes through throughout the podcast; be it his laugh when he surprises himself with what comes out of his mouth or a pal says something he loves; or his impassioned promos to Vince McMahon to become aware of how the WWE needs to change for a more aware world that is looking to improve.

What if "This American Life" focused on wrestling
Tim Kail treats pro-wrestling like an art form while maintaining the relatable and down-to-earth passion of a wrestling fan. He will talk about wrestlers, matches, angles, etc. in a manner that is deep, detailed, and intelligent, but without sounding pretentious. Tim is like if Ira Glass was on a mission looking to help his listeners, whether or not they follow wrestling, understand what about it is so special and why he is so invested in it. He is also refreshingly vulnerable as Tim has made episodes talking about his personal struggles as a wrestling fan and as a podcast producer to stay motivated and inspired. Tim has not only helped me in a lot of ways become a better fan and representative of the wrestling fan community, he's also inspired me to pursue my own passions. He also invites his mom on for conversations which are darling and always make for an interesting discussion. I can't recommend this podcast enough. Whether Tim is expounding his passionate support for womens wrestling and equal opportunities for women wrestlers or explaining how Dean Ambrose is the Millenial hero of the WWE, he is always impassioned, on point, and captivating. Easily one of the best pro-wrestling podcasts out there. Have a nice day.
