This week on The Work of Wrestling podcast, host Tim Kail is joined by his friend and newcomer to the show, John Macy. Tim & John discuss the origin of John's pro-wrestling fandom, the differences between the first brand split and the current one, how the concepts of "ratings" and "television" have fundamentally changed and how & when cable will be replaced by a collection of streaming services, the specific reasons WWE's ratings are bad and why they should make a key change to programming if they want that to change, how a WWE fan may struggle to reconcile their love of WWE with their hatred of the Trump administration, and why John, when he learned that pro-wrestling was "a work" still decided to love it.
