Episode 98: Of Course She’s Qualified

Stick To Wrestling, the only WICKED GOOD wrestling podcast out there, is once again joined by John Muse as we talk about the first Clash of the Champions special. We go into the details of

–Why this show came into existence and how it changed wrestling history.

–Precious goes wild with coat hangers and wooden boards.

–Steve Williams rolls out one of the worst interviews of all time on live TV. Why was Doc still a babyface?

–The Midnight Express vs The Fantastics in a ten minute tornado of a match.

–The debut of Al Perez, managed by Gary Hart. Believe it or not, Perez was seen as a major acquisition at the time.

–The NWA had a Barbed Wire Match. The WWF would never consider doing one of these in 1988.

–A much smaller version of Nikita Koloff returns.

–Lex Luger and Barry Windham pull off a major surprise by winning the NWA tag titles from Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard.

–The NWA had a Penthouse Pet as a judge for the main event. The WWF would never consider doing this in 1988.

–Ric Flair vs Sting turns out to be Match of the Year, and Sting becomes a star in 45 minutes.

Plus we discuss Patty Mullen’s other endeavors, so what are you waiting for? Download and listen to this WICKED GOOD bad boy.

Episode 94: Breakfast Time For Some, Bed Time For Others

STICK TO WRESTLING is once again joined by popular guest Jammie Ward! It’s Wrestlemania Season and and we talk Wrestlemania 4 and Wrestlemania 5, and Jammie was in attendance for both events.

–What was the impact of having Wrestlemanias 4 and 5 at Trump Plaza?

–On the NBC special before Wrestlemania 4, HonkyTonk Man refuses to lose Intercontinental Title title to Randy Savage on NBC. How should the WWF have handled this?

–A copy of a WWF magazine leaked out that had Savage listed as the new WWF champion after winning the Wrestlemania 4 tournament. How should the WWF have reacted?

–Was Wrestlemania 4 the worst Wrestlemania ever?

–What was the reaction to Rick Rude beating Ultimate Warrior for the Intercontinental Title at Wrestlemania 5?

–What were the best and worst matches at Wrestlemania 5?

–Randy Savage was in the hospital (!!) on the morning of Wrestlemania 5 (!!) with a staph infection. What if Randy Savage absolutely could not have made the show.

Plus Johnny Mac goes down the fantasy booking rabbit hole and re-does Wrestlemania 4, so what are you waiting for? Download and listen to this WICKED GOOD BAD BOY!

Episode 72: Really Big Guys Who Pretend To Fight

This week John McAdam and Sean Goodwin are joined by Tony Caro, coming to you all the way from Thailand! We do one more week of mailbox questions, featuring:

– Starrcade ’87- if it did well on PPV, how does that change history?

– Pat Patterson was the only wrestler to get four championship matches in one run against Bob Backlund. Who else could have pulled this off?

– It’s 1988. Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard remain in the NWA. What happens next with them?

– 90’s indy promotions; which was our favorite?

– Kevin, David, and Kerry Von Erich- how would they have fared if their Dad had not been a promoter?

– The Andersons- who was the best?

– NWA POWERR- what do we think?

– What if Randy Savage went to the AWA instead of Memphis in 1983?

– Junior Heavyweights- why did they not get over in the United States?

Plus we show our contempt for the way WCW booked Bret Hart on the 20th anniversary of him winning the United States title, also known as booking him to fail. What are you waiting for? DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN TO THIS BAD BOY!
