Episode 22: A Heel Version Of The MegaPowers

John McAdam and Sean Goodwin’s weekly discussion features analyzing Madison Square Garden shows from late 1976. We dive not only into the details of the wrestlers and the matches but how the entire machine worked. Other things we talked about:

-The real legacy of the recently passed Jose Lothario and his feud with former protege Gino Hernandez.
-Did they cancel a scheduled Madison Square Garden show after Bruno’s injury?
-Superstar Billy Graham, Ivan Koloff, and Ernie Ladd forming a miniature union of sorts and how it should have impacted the tag team titles.
-Haystack Calhoun’s level of stardom in the WWWF.
-Hey, what was the deal with Ox Baker appearing on WWF TV in 1980?
-How hot the Chief Jay Strongbow and Billy White Wolf team were in 1976 and the mistakes the promotion made that ended up making them ice cold.
-Plus John shares a (hopefully) funny story about meeting Johnny Rodz and Pete Sanchez in 1982. And more!
