Pro Wrestler Podcasts: Dave Rayne and Social Gaming
[Podcast was originally published on our now defunct sister website, Egg Says Whut?, which was a video games blog which has now ben integrated into Media Muppet. Originally published October 2011.]
On the eve of the release of Batman: Arkham City, I sat down in a wrestling gym with Dave Rayne, who is the current Futureshock Wrestling Champion and wrestles all over the UK. One of English wrestling's worst kept secrets is that he is actually the booker for Futureshock too.
I had a great time sitting down with a cup of tea and chatting to Dave. He clearly loves his wrestling and his video games in equal measure (which is something that I can definitely empathise with). Dave expresses his opinions on franchises in the video gaming industry, why he thinks video games are superior to film, the impossible task of explaining the social side of gaming to old people, and we also talk about Sonic the Hedgehog celebrating his 20th birthday.
So, sit back for 25 minutes (or have it on while you change the bed linen or whatever), and enjoy the ESW interview with Dave Rayne.
