Bryan Alvarez and Wade Keller…

seem to have a lot in common. Am I the only one who has noticed this? They are both more facilitators of discussion on their respective podcasts as opposed to being people relied on for their wrestling knowledge. They both disrupt great wrestling discussion (especially by Todd Martin who I am a big fan of when he is serious) by interjecting lame attempts at humor (subjective of course). Going back to the first point, neither of them are what I would call wrestling people. They are people who talk about wrestling, but they are not historians. They basically use their real-life beliefs to push their wrestling beliefs and narratives. They are also both relatively close-minded in a business where it is much better to be open-minded as an analyst because all kinds of things can be effective or ineffective (my next post is actually going to be about the fact that wrestling should be analyzed backwards in this era-I’ll explain in that post). They also do not watch as much wrestling as they should considering their jobs.
