Cageside Chat with K. Sawyer Paul of International Object

Pro wrestling is an art form. Some may call it gutter theater, others may see it, determine how "fake" it is and decide to laugh at the very notion of taking it in as legitimate entertainment.

And then some may see it through a lens different than everyone else.

That's the case with K. Sawyer Paul of International Object. On top of having a respectable palate, the man is smart and well spoken. He's also got quite a few interesting ideas regarding this here entertainment industry we all love.

Like how he believes WWE could learn from the ballet. Yes, I said ballet.

Because Paul has such a different way of digesting pro wrestling, I asked him to come on for a Cageside Chat to talk about it. And talk about it we do. For just over one hour, Paul and myself discuss how we view pro wrestling, his issues with the Wrestling Observer and dirt sheets in general and whether or not John Cena is this generation's Hulk Hogan.

Unfortunately, I had some technical issues (there's that again, right?!) on my end and the sound quality isn't nearly as good as you're used to hearing when Sergio and myself do Cageside Live. But it could be worse and if you've got some headphones, all should be well.

It's worth the listen, Cagesiders. Check it out after the jump.
