This time, J (@thenearzone) and Jeff (@EminentProf) go back onto the deep end and talk about pro wrestling as it is, not as it could (or should) be. WWE's storytelling is the hot topic today, and the basic question is: 'Why?' Why does WWE bury talents that it should be building up? Why does WWE make us sit through hour-long promos to get to five minute matches? And why, if WWE does everything that a wrestling show absolutely shouldn't do, is WWE still so successful? We do our best to dig into this, but it's complicated! It's gonna take more than one episode to un-weird the behemoth that comes from Stamford CT.

People keep comparing WWE to the election, or is it the election to WWE? I don't know anymore this world we live in is wacky!!!!!! If you prefer to bury your head in the sand for an hour rather than deal with more of this horrible parade of villains, please give this episode of Weird of Sport a listen! Jeff (@EminentProf) and J Onwuka make lots of jokes about Hillary scandals and Trump lies and at the end of it, the only thing that changes hands is a pro wrestling title belt, instead of the future of the human civilization. Laugh so you don't cry!
