#HWETW No. 3: How Big Van Vader Explains Wrestling

The Wrestling Estate‘s David Gibb and Juice Make Sugar’s Nick Bond are here with their off-cycle supplement to the pleasantly in-depth discussion on what makes professional wrestling, well, professional wrestling (and, at least every other week) what that means for the world.

This week, we talk about Big Van Vader, the second entry to our wrestling compendium and a mutual favorite of ours. We’ll cover what made Vader work as both a monster and a heel from the sumo halls of Tokyo in NJPW to Independence Arena in Charlotte, NC. We’ll also be announcing some exciting news about Juice Make Sugar and next week’s topic for How Wrestling Explains The World.

If you like the theme song, “Dog of War” by the Hell Yeah Babies, you should buy their album All The Things You Believe on Bandcamp

If you like the show after the theme song, rate review and subscribe to us on Podbean or iTunes.
