RevCast


Commentary, criticism and comedy about movies, TV and all corners of geeky genres and culture. A sci-fi convention in your pocket.

Dec 30, 2012

Were you confused when Sy-Fy added wrestling to their lineup? And not just because they forgot how to spell Sci-Fi? Then join host Gary Mitchel as he, and Orenthal V. Hawkins and David Perry step inside the squared circle to explain why it's not as unlikely a mixture as you might think. They go to the mat to look beyond the spandex and masks to dive into the history of professional wrestling and the unexpected overlaps between genre and sports entertainment.

Our theme music this episode is "Cultists On Board" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, courtesy of Divine Industries.
