### [Last Episode's](https://fanthropological.com/earthbound) Famous Last Words
What did we have to say before doing the preparation for this week's episode?
**G:** < Abstained >
**T:** Why do people enjoy watching bad wrestling?
[// Seems partially nostalgia: period where it was cool. lack of competition or desire to find other sources.]: #
**Z:** Wrestlers are pretty great show people, performing for the back of the room... have there been wrestlers that were not fans before they got into it (or ever during)? Is every pro-wrestler a fan?
