The Negative One Podcast – 98 – Matt Ram-Jams the Wrestler

Welcome to the Negative One Podcast!

We’re really bad at releasing on time.  Eventually we’ll just be so late, we’ll call it early for the next week.

This week, Matt takes a stab at the movie that revitalized Mickey Rourke’s career, The Wrestler! Matt and Thomas talk about the popularity of wrestling in the past,  the ironic current popularity amongst peers, doing what it takes to get by, and some deep humanity issues while trying to unpack whether or not this was a good movie. Also, there are some comments on Marisa Tomei. When is enough enough? You put the lime in the coconut, mix it all together, and then you feel better?!

Does Matt talk about secret government tokens? Does Thomas McEltroll Matt? Does Matt learn about Jerry Lawler’s feud with Andy Kaufman*?

Listen and find out!

*Thomas incorrectly attributes a story about smacking a reporter to Jerry Lawler.  This was actually David Schultz (aka “Dr. D” and “Dr. Death”) slapping 20/20 reporter John Stossel.
