Alex Autrey, Nicholas Ahlhelm and John Morgan Neal join forces to talk about one of the biggest shifts in the history of wrestling! The Pro Wrestling Roundtable talks about the history of kayfabe in the business and its death at the hands of Vincent Kennedy McMahon. Plus we talk about the elements of kayfabe that survive, tell our own personal kayfabe breaking (and saving) moments and talk about the importance of the idea of reality in good storytelling.
