Welcome to episode 3 of “Not About Dark Side of the Ring” - a humorous weekly review & recap of "Dark Side of the Ring" on Vice. This week, Steph, Chris, and Don discuss "Collision in Korea." The professional wrestling event - officially known as the Pyongyang International Sports and Culture Festival for Peace - was jointly produced by NJPW and WCW and featured 15 matches over two evenings in 1995. The second day of the event still holds the record for the largest ever attendance for a wrestling event, with a claimed audience of 190,000, many of whom were forced to be in attendance or get shot (allegedly) by government officials. The NAW crew discusses the massive event, Eric Bischoff's need to beat Vince McMahon at this own game, the fact that the event really only benefitted one person, the Muhammad Ali magic hour, what cassette tape might have been in Scott Norton's confiscated Walkman, 2 Cold Scorpio's homemade weapon, and the fact that Chris Benoit talked someone out of murder. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/not-about-wrestling/support

This week, I'm talking to Tom Green. No, not that Tom Green. This Tom Green is a former wrestling promoter. Green started booking shows at the insanely young age of 18 and he got into the business in an incredibly odd way. Green's friend somehow stumbled upon the home phone number of former New Japan and WCW star, Scott Norton. So they called Norton and asked if he wanted to be on a wrestling show that didn't exist yet. Norton said yes. Suddenly, the duo were wrestling promoters. Fight Sports Midwest lasted only a few shows the cards included incredible talent who dominate professional wrestling cards today. Names like Tyler Black (Seth Rollins), Eddie Kingston, Samoa Joe, Claudio Castagnoli (Cesaro), and Austin Aries to name a few. In this episode, Green discusses his early love of wrestling, the amount of work that went into booking those Fight Sports Midwest cards, the mistakes he made and the lessons learned, and how getting into the wrestling business is pretty damn easy but surviving in the business is a whole other story. Ladies and gentleman, entering the podcast, hailing from Lafayette, Indiana, this is Tom Green. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/not-about-wrestling/support

With the economy working through a recession - though certainly a unique mix of crosswinds - we thought it would be good to get out of the software space. Scott Norton, co-founder and CEO of Sir Kensington's, joins the Razor's Edge to talk about what he's seeing in this macro environment, both as someone who started out in finance and as the CEO of the condiments maker. He shares insights from the company's founding in the last recession and what makes the modern consumer goods company different from the big brands (though the big brands can still win, he points out). And since this is the Razor's Edge, we still talk a little bit of SaaS. Topics Covered 3:00 minute mark – Sir Kensington's calling its shot, but also missing out on another big startup 11:00 – How did the last recession shape the firm, and Scott's career? 15:00 – The market's liquidity rush and does the bill ever come due? 21:30 –Past recessions and Japan as models to keep an eye on as we work through this period 30:00 – What does 2020 look like for Sir K both in terms of work from home and changing habits? 37:00 – The feedback loop for the modern consumer goods company 40:30 – Cross pollination in the Unilever family 43:00 – What this period means for habit dislocation 46:00 – Planning amidst uncertainty 51:00 – New software tools?
