Episode 128: Mike Edison Talks “Wrestling Journalism”

Hello, wrestling fans! It’s time for Episode #128 of Shut Up and Wrestle, with Brian R. Solomon!

This week, one of Brian’s most popular guests–author, editor and musician Mike Edison–returns to the show to discuss the strange phenomenon known as “wrestling journalism”.

From the days of the kayfabe magazines right up to the head-scratching “press scrums” of today, Brian and Mike get into the weeds on the very nature of both pro wrestling *and* journalism, plus a whole lot more.

Buckle up, grab your beverage of choice, and listen carefully, or you may miss something!

Episode 127: Lucas Chase

Hello, wrestling fans! It’s time for Episode #127 of Shut Up and Wrestle, with Brian R. Solomon!

This week, Brian is joined by independent wrestler “The Cure” Lucas Chase!

In addition to being a student of Dustin Rhodes, Lucas is a student of the history of the business, and is here to discuss that history from the point of view of someone who applies the lessons it teaches every time he steps in the ring.

We get into what appeals to us about classic wrestling, as well as what it’s like to be a worker in a post-kayfabe world, and a whole lot more.
