Wrestling With the Past

McSweeney's looks at various instances of American history, as acted in the pro wrestling ring. Great idea, but will Al Gore and his steel chair return in '08?

And speaking of wrestling, check out the latest issue of Pro Wrestling Illustrated (with John Cena/PWI 500 on the cover). It has a review, by yours truly, of this DVD. (The review isn't online, but check your local newsstand.) No, it's not the New Yorker, but I read PWI religiously as a kid, so it's really something to actually get into the magazine.

I think I'm going to have to check out the Von Erich documentary. The Von Erichs are, I think, the saddest story in the history of wrestling. How does it compare to Beyond the Mat?
