Episode 15: The Stick To Wrestling Listeners Demand Answers

John McAdam and Sean Goodwin are back for the most recent installment of the “Stick To Wrestling” podcast where we answer YOUR questions! What did ECW need to do to succeed nationally? What if Jim Crockett did not sell to Ted Turner? How on earth did a supercard with a lineup as weak as Wrestlemania I succeed? What if WCW won the war? Where are Brian Last’s pants? Not to guilt trip anyone, we would NEVER do that, but John and Sean missed the Browns vs Jets game to tackle (see what we did there?) these important questions!

Episode 14: Buddy Landel Did Not Need To Travel To Hawaii To Hang Ten

John McAdam and Sean Goodwin are back for the final installment of the “Stick To Wrestling” three part series featuring all things 1985 World Championship Wrestling, Mid-Atlantic Wrestling, and Georgia Championship Wrestling.

We dive deep into Starrcade ’85 and the big angles that led up to it including the historic angle where Flair shows a lack of gratitude by turning on Dusty right after Rhodes saves Ric from the Koloffs (of course McAdam sides with Flair here).

There’s are also debates on whether they turned the right wrestler for Starrcade, and whether or not the title should have legitimately changed hands that night. Plus there’s a brief aside on Kerry Von Erich and wrestling memorabilia. Wrestling is stuck to us, so we STICK TO WRESTLING!

John McAdam and Sean Goodwin are back for part two of the “Stick To Wrestling” three part series featuring all things 1985 World Championship Wrestling, Mid-Atlantic Wrestling, and Georgia Championship Wrestling. We discuss all of the big angles, how Dusty was at one point so good at identifying unknown talents and turning them into stars, the former Georgia guys who stayed and the guys who would up elsewhere, and much more. Plus Johnny Mac spends about ninety seconds discussing the latest Colin Kaepernick controversy. Just ninety seconds? Dudes, we STICK TO WRESTLING!

Episode 11: No Pinning Tony Garea In Utica!

Johnny Mac’s co-pilot Sean was unavailable this week, but longtime WWWF fan Scott Cornish was here for the rescue. What if the WWWF agreed to keep the title on Superstar Billy Graham, and for how long? What if the WWWF turned Superstar babyface after his rematches vs Bob Backlund? What if Superstar Billy Graham wasn’t available to take over for Bruno? Who, then? Who were Superstar Billy Graham’s missing challengers? Who were Bob Backlund’s missing challengers? And then the big one: what if Bruno Sammartino was willing to hold the WWWF title indefinitely? Check out this week’s Stick To Wrestling podcast, andJohn & Scott will give you definitive answers (also known as guesses).

Episode 9: Men Without Hats: McAdam, Goodwin & The Great Brian Last

John McAdam and Sean Goodwin are joined by The Great Brian Last, who is the first to sit in Stick To Wrestling’s guest chair! We discuss the year in wrestling that was 1983, the final time the territories existed peacefully- well, sort of. In hindsight there were plenty of writing on the subway wall telling us that the wrestling world would soon be radically changing and that the “War of ‘84“ was inevitable. Download, listen, and discover that it really wasn’t Vincent Kennedy McMahon who killed the territories, despite any claims to the contrary.

Episode 8: Johnny Mac Gives Arn Anderson The News

Sean Goodwin and John McAdam are back! We do a double dip “What If” Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard had not left the NWA in 1988, and what if they had never left the WWF in 1989. We do our best / favorite heel turns but not before heading down a hilarious rabbit hole while discussing Dave Meltzer’s match star rating system and how Mr. Meltzer’s recent amendments to it sent poor ol’ Johnny Mac into a tailspin. Sixty can’t-miss minutes. Okay, maybe fifty nine and three quarters.

Episode 7: Why Is There A Camera Here?

Sean Goodwin and John McAdam are back! A conversation that starts as a discussion over the best years of wrestling turns into a debate about what is acceptable “suspension of belief” in today’s wrestling as opposed to wrestling from the 1970‘s and 1980‘s. It’s a fun, spirited 60 minutes where we STICK TO WRESTLING!
