Zach Bogle started a current events wrestling outlet called Stalemates in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. With no wrestling, what else did wrestling people get to do to try to stay busy? It was like an extended offseason. Enter Bogle and Stalemates, which summed up the “Twitter tea” with weekly episodes, guests, goofy memes and a general breath of fresh air the wrestling world needed. 

Stalemates also ushered in another wrestling card concept, with a lot of former wrestlers and weekend warriors mixing things up in the Stalemates Street League. The second iteration will be coming October 29 at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines. Fans can subscribe to Stalemates via Patreon ( to watch for $3.99. We get a little bit into Bogle’s wrestling background and the Stalemates origin story before talking bout social media, wrestling and general goofiness as most wrestling people do.
