#62: Chris Benoit & the Dark Side of Wrestling w/ Guest Host Mason

True Crime Dumpster

Some say professional wrestling is fake--just a bunch of ‘roided out maniacs in tights acting out a play. They’re not totally wrong. While professional wrestling is scripted with story lines and predetermined winners and losers, the level of athleticism and commitment to the art is very real. Also, very real are the injuries sustained and the cumulative effects of years of head trauma, and concussions, which is the same with professional football players and boxers. These head injuries can lead to dangerous personality disorders and violence. Chris Benoit is a prime example of this. Join Kevin, Amy, and our good friend Mason, as we dish out the trash.
