My new article for Psyche on pro wrestling, philosophy, and the quest for truth is now online!
Many thanks to Nigel Warburton for editing it, I really enjoyed writing this.
As a fun aside, I happened to be at the show the lead photo for the article is from, which was the NJPW/ROH G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden in April 2019. I talk about bits of this show in Philosophy Smackdown too.
This picture is from the battle royal, with Jushin Liger, the Great Muta, and Kenny King. Liger and Muta were huge surprise entrants, and the pops for them were huge! Here Muta his Kenny King with the mist, but King would sneakily emerge victorious to win an ROH title shot.
