WOW - EP128 - WWE Backlash Review
2 days ago
Work of Wrestling host Tim Kail reviews the latest #SDLive-themed WWE pay-per-view Backlash. Tim breaks down every match, covering everything from the lackluster to the sublime. He even goes on some good old-fashioned impassioned rants about the state of the Sami Zayn character and the state of Women's Wrestling (the "family friendly" streak of episodes has been broken!) He breaks down the minutest details of the remarkable United States Championship match between Kevin Owens and AJ Styles, and examines the nature of "selling" and "active engagement" in wrestling regardless of style. He also gives a quick review of the main event match, trying his hardest to remain objective in his assessment while also expressing how great it felt to hear the crowd chant "Let's go Jinder!"

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.
