1.3. Anatomy of a Match

In this episode: Drew and Stefan call their spots.

The match is the central dramatic tool of the wrestling world, and the storytelling tool that separates it from other entertainment genres. Like film, television, theater, and music, the wrestling match conforms to a series of dramatic conventions built over decades to maximize the audience's experience and tell a compelling story within the confines of the squared circle. Join us as we provide an overview of these conventions and explore what makes a great match worth watching.
