What's In A Name?

Expectant parents spend hours pouring over baby books picking out the perfect name. A name that has the right meaning and the right sound. A name that's not too weird, but still unique, and one that doesn't remind you of all the snotty girls from your school. The stakes are high as research has shown names can be related to economic status, success in school, and even political ideology.

Producer Amy Friedman looks at where that left the Minnesota wrestling scene as she speaks to fans divided between eras- one remembering the past, and another looking towards the future.
