This week’s show is all about romance and wrestling and why wrestling promotions think fans give a crap.
This week, I’m joined by author and social media star, Tara Clark (@modernmomprobs). Tara runs a hilarious Instagram account chronicling her struggles with being a parent and her new book – “Modern Mom Probs: A Survival Guide for 21st Century Mothers” – hits shelves at the end of April.
Tara is a lifelong wrestling fan. She was hooked the day she first set eyes on the lovely Miss Elizabeth. She’s watched the WWE ever since and admits that “90% of her social media feeds are wrestling news websites.”
In this episode, Tara and I discuss the original storyline between Miss Elizabeth and “Macho Man” Randy Savage and how wrestling got romance right the first time and failed just about every time after.
We also revisit the recent Lashley and Lana storyline, discuss exactly who these romance angles are made to attract, and talk about real-life wrestling couples and how putting those romances typically leads to failed relationships.
Tara shares her experiences being in the Thunderdome audience numerous times over the last year and how the WWE forcing fans to cheer and boo performers might have soured her young son on wrestling.
Plus, Steph shows up to explain why she missed the show. It’s a valid reason.
