Episode 52: Mike Chapman

Hello wrestling fans! It’s time for Episode #52 of Shut Up and Wrestle, with Brian R. Solomon!

My guest this week is noted historian and the world’s leading authority on Frank Gotch, Mike Chapman! Mike sits down (in Gotch’s favorite chair) to discuss the Peerless One, plus Hackenschmidt, Stecher, Caddock, Thesz, Hodge and other great shooters, and shares his views on just what was and wasn’t on the level.

It’s a deep dive into the early history of the wrestling business this week on Shut Up and Wrestle!
