Slaughter, Tully Blanchard, Harley Race, Barry Windham, Dusty Rhodes, Nick Bockwinkel, Junkyard Dog, Jerry Lawler, Randy Savage, Curt Hennig, Ted Dibiase, Andre The Giant, Roddy Piper, Hulk Hogan, and Ric Flair.

Episode 27: Joe Leduc Goes To The Hardware Store And Buys An Axe

Sean Goodwin is back, and this week he and John McAdam are joined by wrestling historian Beau James in the guest seat. We spend the entire sixty minutes discussing the history of Southeastern Championship Wrestling! (Which is like spending sixty minutes telling the story of World War II, but we did our best). We have bulletpoints!

–How Whitey Caldwell’s death had a deep, long term impact on the area and how incredibly big that story was in the area.

–Ronnie Garvin pins Andre The Giant. Somehow the tape disappears right before a mega-historic event. This was an eye-popping story.

–What a huge star Bob Armstrong was in Southeast.

–The story about how The Mongolian Stomper legitimately almost killed Joe LeDuc on television, and the incredible aftermath.

–An INSANE story about Joe LeDuc pulling th

–How Bob Roop was the Typhoid Mary of this area.

–Details of the roller coaster ride the area went through during the 1980’s.

Beau’s perspective, knowledge and attention to details and facts here are nothing short of amazing. Make sure you up your information game by listening closely to this show.

Episode 26: Jeff Bowdren & John McAdam don’t swap wives, they swap wife stories.

Sean Goodwin has the flu! So my friend of over thirty years, Jeff “The Booker” Bowdren is the pinch hitter for this episode and he totally pulls a Kirk Gibson. Here’s what you’ll hear about on this week’s sixty minute episode:

–A tribute to the late Dynamite Kid, including abstract stuff such as his time in Calgary, Portland, and Japan. Of course we discuss his legacy as an in-ring performer, but we also discuss his book, his out of the ring reputation and issues, that time he broke Curt Hennig’s neck, and more.

–How Jeff first got into the 80’s pro wrestling underground.

–The brutal WWF travel schedule and lifestyle during the Hogan Era and the misfortune it led to.

–Jeff and I veer off into the NWA’s year of 1989, since we saw shows together including an amazing event we witnessed at the Philadelphia Civic Center the night before the 1989 Great American Bash.

–Lex Luger, who Jeff had to deal with life as a CWF fan when Lex was an off the street rookie getting a ridiculous push.

–Brian Pillman’s start in the NWA.

–Johnny Mac’s favorite Dynamite Kid moment, where he DOES NOT Stick To Wrestling.

Episode 12: Black Saturday Was Worth It

Sean Goodwin is back! He and John McAdam discuss the 1985 JCP / Mid-Atlantic product, the promotion’s take over of the TBS and what led to it, Dusty Rhodes’ early days as booker for Mid-Atlantic after leaving Florida, Ole Anderson’s 1985 heel turn, and much more.

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 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!
