In this Ring, Aspiring Wrestlers Grapple with Opponents Within
By Eric Goodman and Trenton Daeschner
“Learning The Ropes” pulls back the curtain on an upstart professional wrestling school in Austin, Texas. For the students and trainers here, the performance lifestyle of wrestling has become a way out of – and for some a way into – very real personal struggles. Produced, shot and edited by Eric Goodman and Trenton Daeschner, with support from the University of Texas School of Journalism.
