Welcome to Crossbody of Work, a show where we break down a wrestler’s career through five of their biggest matches.

This week we look at the most perfect man in wrestling: Curt Hennig. We’re looking at matches from his Mr. Perfect run in WWF, including a pair against Bret Hart. We’ll also dive into his AWA work before reaching WWF, including a pair of AWA Championship matches against Nick Bockwinkel and Jerry Lawler. On top off his matches and excellent career, Evan & Javier also talk about:

  • Lawler being boring
  • Where does Mr. Perfect rank among terrible jump shots
  • Tito Santana appreciation
  • Stu Hart’s meme potential

And a lot more.
