We have a special episode this week! Dr. Jessica Krenek joined us in studio to discuss her work in studying non-male wrestling fans and topics surrounding that, such as gatekeeping and inter-gender wrestling. Dr. Jess then sticks around to break down the action of the 1996 Royal Rumble. We probe deep into the contradictory messaging the WWF was presenting at the time, chuckle at the Billionaire Ted bits, and analyze the Freudian tensions between Goldust and Razor Ramon. Rich also dodges and parries all attempts at claiming that Doink was his favorite wrestler. Thanks for listening!
