We discuss the history of this carnival attraction turned billion dollar industry, the toll it takes on its performers, the ugly business dealings of Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon, and everyone’s favorite technicolor lunatic, the Ultimate Warrior. Feel the destrucity!

Such a pleasure working with you guys. I could listen to Rich’s tales of the territory days for ages.
I do, however, have one factual correction. Early on I claim that George Hackenschmidt used to pay sparring partners to injure future opponents. This is incorrect.
It was Frank Gotch who did that. George Hackenschmidt was one of the opponents he did it TO.
