#HWETW No. 5: How the DDT Explains Wrestling

The Wrestling Estate‘s David Gibb and our own 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 The DDTthe fifth entry to our wrestling compendium. We discuss what made it work, how it informed Jake’s career as well wrestling in general and who (if anyone) comes close to Jake in the ring and on the mic. We also have another announcement, though less earth shattering than usual.

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.
