This is a conversation between a husband and wife, whose distinct but complementary perspectives on wrestling are influenced by their educational and professional backgrounds, as well as the age at which they were introduced to the sport. Frank Tomcik is a life-long fan and current physical education teacher. Dr. Jovana (Joey) Martinović is a psychiatrist, who only became a wrestling fan fifteen years ago, when she met Frank. Dr. Nevena Martinović, Joey’s sister and a theatre and performance studies scholar working in the field of age studies, provided the guiding questions for this conversation, edited the final piece, and provided a reflection on their conversation through the lens of her academic work and lived experience.
