Ep. 20: Death and Wrestling – Part 1


Are you ready to rumble?!  Today Jack and J. J. discuss the dark underbelly of professional wrestling.  Once your hosts warm up with a primer on wrestling lingo, they get into the meat of violence and murder.  They end with an in-depth discussion of the Chris Benoit double murder/suicide.  In the next episode, they’ll examine the reasons behind the inordinate number of wrestlers who abuse drugs, die early, or commit suicide.
