On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with TV host and producer Kristal Hart.
While covering boxing, entertainment, and various cultural events for many years, she has now started covering catch wrestling.
Her show, the Kristal Hart Show, is aired on Manhattan Neighborhood Network every Tuesday at 9 PM ET. On Time Warner Cable, it is on channels 56 and 1996. On RCN, it is on channel 83. And on Verizon FiOS it is on channel 34.
Besides being aired on various networks outside Manhattan, many of her videos are also available online at http://www.youtube.com/kristalhart.
We spoke with her both at the start of the 2014 Catch Wrestling World Championship, presented by the Snake Pit U.S.A., at the MMA World Expo in New York on July 27, and again on October 15 in New York to reflect on that event and discuss the emergence of catch wrestling.
Speaking about the 2014 Catch Wrestling World Championship, she said, "I definitely enjoyed it. I thought that it's quick and there has an athletic as well as an entertainment value."
The basic rules of catch wrestling, where you win by pin or submission and there are no points, make it "sort of simple in its own way," she said.
"I think it could have a bright future if it could get some backing," she added.
We discussed the main matches at the 2014 Catch Wrestling World Championship, why 2014 has been a banner year for the revival of catch wrestling, what catch wrestling needs to do to advance to the next level, and more.
