1.24 - How Wrestling Explains Enron

The Wrestling Estate‘s David Gibb and Juice Make Sugar's Nick Bond are here weekly to provide a pleasantly in-depth discussion on a specific subject that professional wrestling helps explain in ways you may not have realized.

This week, it's Enron: it's a story that fits right into the strange turn of the century world that caused WCW, Eric Bischoff and Vince Russo to self immolate at nearly the same time Jeff Skilling, Ken Lay and Andy Fastow's byzantine plans keep their company going started to unravel before our eyes. And all for exactly the same reason: egos unmatched by anything other than their ruthless aggression and need for validation from people they thought were cooler than them. 

Don't forget to check out Dave's Follow-up Files on our Patreon -- this episode's edition will be the only one available without contributing -- to which if, for whatever reason, you like the people behind the show you can help us pay for hosting by contributing (you'll also receive a shout out on the show as a sexy wizard, so that's something to look forward to.) 

If you liked our theme song, "Dog of War" by the Hell Yeah Babies, you should buy their album All The Things You Believe on Bandcamp.
