Interview with Emily and Dann Read from Pro-Wrestling: EVE

This episode of Holy Shoot is an interview with Emily and Dann Read from Pro-Wrestling: EVE.

 

We had always planned to air this episode as part of Women's History Month, celebrating this ground-breaking feminist-punk-rock wrestling promotion that has continually played a major part in the popularity and increased exposure of the female professional wrestling scene. With the sad news that Emily is backing a step back from EVE this week, it felt even more important to share the interview. Both Emily and Dann were in fine form when we interviewed them in the run-up to Wrestle Queendom 3 back in January.

 

This interview was conducted for and included in Women Love Wrestling, a collection of passionate writing from women and about women in wrestling written, by fans, wrestlers, podcasters, journalists, promoters, culture critics and academics. You can find out more about this non-profit book at https://womenlovewrestling.net/

  • Why Does EVE matter?
  • Training at EVE Academy and encouraging women to be loud and physical
  • How training is different for women compared to men
  • How and why EVE obtain mainstream media attention
  • Helping wrestlers develop characters with movesets and promos that make sense for them
  • The history of EVE over the past 10 years that led up to Wrestle Queendom 3
  • How the 1st Wrestle Queendom, Europe's largest ever all-female event, came to be

Bestest Big Boi Battle Bowl

The Holy Shoot Wrestling Podcast presents The Big Boi Battle Bowl. This segment is inspired by the recent interest in NXT Big Boy Keith Lee, and the start of Wrestlemania season with the usual Undertaker speculation. Today 16 of the most famous big men in the history of wrestling will compete for the title of Bestest Biggest Boi.

Its not simply the best in-ring performer. These are big men, its about their in-ring work, their aura, the presentation of the gimmick, who you think would win if they booked the match, and who people enjoyed the most.

Women Love Wrestling - managing and publishing the book

Two straight white men talk about women and diversity in professional wrestling.

 

Brod interviews Jason about Women Love Wrestling, the book he has curated, edited and co-wrote with a team of talented wrestling fans from around the world. The book is all about women in wrestling and includes chapters by promotors, culture critics, wrestlers, PhDs, and journalists.
