The on again, off again segment planned by HBO’s Real Sports on pro wrestling will air tonight. The show, which will be hosted by Armen Keteyian (look for HBO to air the clip in 2003 where Vince McMahon slaps the notes out of Keteyian’s hand). As we previously noted, HBO did interview Marcus Bagwell for the segment a few weeks back, and pulling out of a scheduled interview with Konnan. According to the press release, the segment will focus on the road schedule, lack of job security and workers constantly performing while injured. Keteyian will also focus on what the industry is doing about these issues. If anyone catches the show, and can write up a recap, please do let me know.
