RJ is involved in a lot of different avenues of entertainment.That’s given him a lot versatility as a performer since he learns a lot from working with so many different audiences. But it’s also made him acutely aware of the different… physical requirements with wrestling compared to being a stand up comic. He’ll explain.
Plus, he’ll tell us all about why he’s become so bored with the traditions of wrestling; in his mind it’s a whole lot of very passionate people competing for very small stakes. That’s why he works to combat a lot of the ideas of traditional masculinity in his work. RJ will tell us about how intentional that is.
All of this and why he thinks wrestling isn’t headed for a mainstream audience any time soon.
