Our scholars welcome Legendary Action Wrestling Advantage Champion, “The Ace” Dante Jayce to discuss the use of patriotism and foreign heels in wrestling.
Then, the scholars discuss the hiring of Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff to creative roles in WWE. They chat about why these men are infamous, and if this is a step forward or a nostalgia play. (23:40)
Then it’s time for the Word of the Day, Foreign Heel. They run through the history of this gimmick, how to make it work most effectively, who some of the notable foreign heel/patriotic wrestling combos are, and how this gimmick works in a modern sense. (40:25)
Finally, our hosts hop in the Kayfabe 5000 and answer important questions about VAR in wrestling, Mark Cuban to the Bullet Club, and more! (1:09:00)
