Episode 58 with Allison Danger
Our first ever podcast guest Allison Danger returns for the latest edition of the Podcast, and it’s in the wake of her retirement earlier this year – a retirement that was punctuated by the news that she’d suffered a stroke in January and subsequently had discovered lesions on her brain. About three months after her emotional sendoff, we caught up with Danger to find out the full story on her health issues, how it all went down, when she found out about it and how it’s affecting her everyday life. Some pretty heavy stuff. We discuss whether the stroke was caused by wrestling, discuss her matches on that last weekend and why young wrestlers need to work smarter to avoid the problems she’s facing. Speaking of young wrestlers, we discuss several of Danger’s tips for the future, and how she’s most happy when she can help mould a young talent. We discuss family matters, Danger explains why all talent can’t (and shouldn’t) be booked everywhere and how the age of instant gratification means that some fans just can’t see the big picture. Quite the show – simultaneously some the most serious topics we’ve ever talked about mixed with trademark Danger wit. A must listen.
