SHOW SUMMARY: This week’s Deep Dive focuses on the big issues of representation in the WWE – particularly with women and how the standard becomes so high when HOF is mentioned for these women. Ciara Reid of Pro Wrestling Ponderings (@pwponderings) joins to give her outstanding perspective on the women’s wrestling scene internationally and historically, as well as the historical relevance and Rich’s thoughts on the latest New Day Pancakes situation – and Bruce Mitchell’s sterling commentary on it. Ciara also goes deep on the treatment of Sasha Banks online, the future of wrestling and its need to move beyond race/ethnicity-based gimmicks, and why we as fans need to demand more. The show closes with a ten-minute conversation with Ciara taking the reigns and fielding a caller who had debated with Bruce’s points online.
