1.31 - How Virgil Runnels Explains Wrestling

The Wrestling Estate's David Gibb and Juice Make Sugar's Nick Bond are here with their off-cycle supplement to the pleasantly in-depth discussion on what makes professional wrestling, well, professional wrestling (and, at least every other week) what that means for the world.

This week, we talk about "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodesthe thirteenth entry to our wrestling compendium. Dave and Nick spent so much time yakkin' about Dusty that we've decided to split the episode in two parts, with today's episode focusing on the man, Virgil Runnels: His start in the industry, the success he had in the 70s and his use of appropriated culture to propel him to worldwide prominence.  

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