We Made This Wrestling Video!
The Show!

Nick loves wrestling. Stephen hates wrestling. Join us every week for You Should Love Wrestling, a podcast where Nick Gligor and a special guest try to convince Stephen Perlstein to love professional wrestling. From the greatest classics and even some clunkers, they tackle matches and promos from WWE, WWF, WCW, NJPW, NXT, ROH, Lucha Underground and beyond, all in an effort to create another pro wrestling fanatic.

In this week’s episode, the boys welcome Ryan Stanger (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Dumbbells podcast) to the show to discuss “30 For 30: This Was The XFL”, the recent ESPN films documentary that examines the failed football league created by WWE chairman Vince McMahon and legendary NBC TV exec Dick Ebersol that lasted for one season. All of the most fascinating bits from the XFL are covered – from the much-hyped commercials, WWF cross-promotion and personalized jerseys, to the increasingly uneventful games, often shuffled personnel and technical disasters that earned the league national criticism. Then, in addition to football, the boys also talk about health, Soylent, Gatorade, marketing/image, and, of course, wrestling. Plus, Joey talks about how eating any food makes him “logy”, a word which is puzzlingly quite new to both Nick and Stephen.
