Academic Analysis of Hardcore, Women's and Inter-gender Wrestling

Recommended Posts

Obviously plugging my own podcast here, but I truly would love to hear suggestions from others about where to find really good writing writing. I mean proper academic studies and educated writers, not just some guy churning out weekly columns. It is really hard to find quality writing for wrestling like your see for acclaimed TV shows.

I recently interviewed Jacqui Pratt about her PhD on rhetoric and composition, which included a chapter on professional wrestling. Specifically she covered independent, hardcore, women's and intergender wrestling, using the famous Candice LaRae and Joey Ryan v Young Bucks match from PWG, crimson mask and all. This was used to combine all 4 topics and the role of each in the wider world of wrestling in 2019, and in particular the subject of kayfabe and mattering in WWE and AEW.

Feedback is welcomed on her work, this podcast and recommendations.
