Hello ladies and mostly gentlemen my name is
not Maple, its David K. Martin and allow me to set the table for what I have to offer you fine folks today. Welcome to MLW History! I’m introducing the release of my newest episode ‘The History of Canadian Professional Wrestling’ (Part 2) to those who care to gain the wisdom of global wrestling history. I feel as though wrestling history has become incredibly viable and abundant in other parts of the world, however the origins to wrestling in Canada are quite bare in comparison.
Canadian wrestling history isn’t as well documented or even culturally transcendent as the Mexicans or the Japanese are in the world of sports and entertainment. Its not plentiful or by any means easy to find all this information, but it is documented, it has been professionally researched, and most importantly it is historically significant to the chronicles of professional wrestling.
The Follow Up
Notes from the Editor:
If you have not given my podcast a chance – here’s the gist. I’ve formatted my program like a television show essentially. I play music, clips from promo’s, matches, commentary quotes and now movie scenes! I take exaggerated pride in my heavily produced podcast and I’ll admit, although its targeted towards my generation (and more specifically Canadian’s) this is a history show first and foremost for anybody seeking knowledge.
However, because this is the podcast I have always wanted, expect it to be laced with beats and peppered with some tragically Canadian comedy. I guarantee a lot of you have never heard a podcast like mine before, and I’m not trying to kill the business for other podcasters that don’t edit. But after hearing my show, you just may feel compelled enough to jump on Patreon and complain to your favorite stick men why they make “x” amount every month but they can’t produce high quality audio?
I’m not trying to oversaturate my show, or defuse the spark that inspires me to do this, so I may later regret advertising the fact that this is a donation based program on top of everything else – and if YOU would like me to discuss some Canadian related topics, all you have to do is charitably donate any sum of currency to my provider Red Circle and then email me at [email protected]. Seriously its not a get rich quick gimmick, I simply just like podcasts with listener interactions. So, I figured this would be the easiest way to supply any demands for the casts while I work on reciting Canadian wrestling history start to finish.
My show’s take time to make but doing your fan requested podcasts have proven to be fun and easy. I encourage any listeners with disposable income to contact me with any requests for content. By doing this eventually I’ll have enough money saved up to afford a Newspapers.com subscription so that I can get a better understanding on certain historical matters and even potentially uncover some addition information to enhance the show and give people a more well defined narrative.
The Selling Point:
In the second installment of the series I cover the nationwide expansion of media, print capitalism, the very first 3-Way Dance in wrestling history, a follow up on the strongest man who ever lived Louis Cyr and his world famous wrestling match against the 5th tallest giant in world history! Not enough? How about the first crossover Canadian stars, the biggest fraud in the business, or perhaps a summary on a newspaper mogul who popularized and promoted boxing in America by using his empire to deceptively build up guy’s reputations in order to draw in more spectators. Hell, I’ll even throw in a Jay Lethal impersonation of the Macho Man and a great Canadian joke break segment to give you something modern in between 120-140 year old history.
There’s a metric shit ton of more info sandwiched in 60+ minutes of audio that I’m genuinely forgetting to mention. (because fuckin’ hell, its Monday) But that’s because I’ve done so much work on this series, its just hard to remember all the bullet points.
But I’ll just say this as a final selling point: I hate how I always have to skip the first several minutes of Grilling JR because of all the uselessly spent time bullshitting and advertising. I hate the sounds of podcasters licking their lips, breathing, coughing, sucking their gums or fiddling with the microphone. I absolutely hate that shit. So I made sure that my high quality podcast wasn’t just ‘loud and clear’ but actually a studio quality presentation. Not a job, but an event.
My “Best of”
The last time you saw me here, I was promoting a bonus episode on Kenny Omega that has quietly gone on to be blatantly ripped off by someone who shall not get his show plugged. And may I say that its both humbling and hilarious that my podcast has plagiarism worthy content! I’m not disappointed or mad at all but as you will (hopefully) hear, I give credit where its due out of respect for the authors, journalists and historians who’ve devoted their lives to documenting wrestling history.
I mean let’s be real, if I didn’t do that my words would mean nothing. I don’t have a reputation or a footprint beyond my developing audience, so it is what it is. But I’ll admit, giving a dude some credit or acknowledgments would be nice. Now if I do this correctly, you should see a link below of my apparently infamous podcast Kenny Omega: The Career thus Far. *snaps finger*
Once again thanks and appreciation goes out to everyone who has enjoyed the show thus far. I am incredibly grateful to have so many people listen to my programs. . You can’t follow me, but you can follow me on the blue bird gimmick @MLWhistoryPod.
The Maple Leaf Wrestling History Podcast is available anywhere podcasts aren’t sold. You can download the shows for free on every platform. I’m also expanding to Youtube since I found out a considerable amount of people actually listen to wrestling podcasts… in video form. Alright I think 1000 words should do it. I mean, you can get fuckin’ lost if you think I’m going to transcribe my podcast. I don’t even write a script; there’s no way in hell I’m typing out an hour-long conversation!
But with that being said… .I do sincerely thank everyone who doesn’t listen, but took the time to read this plug. I hope you’ll give the show a chance once I begin talking about more relevant subjects. Remember, your download is where it counts folks! And until we speak again, just remain calm, keep strong, and stay free y’all.
