This week we welcomed Dr. Marc Ouellette (pronounced Well-ette), associate professor of English from Old Dominion University, to the show. Dr. Marc is a life-long wrestling fan and has published on all bits of pop culture, from video games to professional wrestling and how they intertwine with gender relations and studies. We talked about his 2016 paper, "If you want to be the man, you’ve got to beat the man’: Masculinity and the Rise of Professional Wrestling in the 1990s." We get in deep on the Attitude Era of WWF and the nWo concept in WCW and the parallels between those story arcs and the changes in the portrayal of villains post-cold war in movies and tv. We also discuss the WWF's reactionary tactics to the changes in 90's American culture and angst and the paradox of choice, "A million options and choosing none"
