Episode 229: They Fired The First Shot

STICK TO WRESTLING is once again joined by popular returning guest Jammie Ward as we take a look at all things happening in the WWF during the Fall of 1982!

–The Samoans return to the WWF after leaving Georgia Championship Wrestling without dropping the tag team titles and without giving notice. This may have been the first real shot fired in the 80’s wrestling war.
–Magnificent Muraco returns after being away for a very brief time. This led some to believe he would win the WWF title from Bob Backlund.
–Big John Studd arrives in the WWF with Fred Blassie as his manager, offering prize money to anyone who can bodyslam him. We could all sense the upcoming feud with Andre The Giant.
–Eddie Gilbert becomes Bob Backlund’s new protege. Those who watch wrestling know this will not end well for either Eddie, Bob, or both.
–Pedro Morales’ reign as Intercontinental Champion rolls on.
–Tiger Mask comes to visit and delivers some unforgettable matches.

Plus there’s audio clips and Johnny Mac talks about seeing the WWF on consecutive nights, so what are you waiting for? Download and listen to this wicked good podcast today!

It’s Thanksgiving Week, so Stick To Wrestling discusses the Thanksgiving Day shows from thirty and forty years ago! We discuss:

–The miracle of the Georgia tag team titles somehow being vacant before the annual tag team tournament so that they’d be at stake.
–Stan Hansen as a good guy? Unthinkable in the WWF area.
–Who did Big John Studd say he owed everything to?
–What was the greatest shoot remark ever made in a wrestling promo? We’ll fill you in.
–Handicap matches are dumb.
–Who was the Marty Jannetty of a 1979 tag team? We talk about it.
–What if the WWF used Bruno Sammartino to get younger wrestlers over toward the end of his career?
–What should the cash prize for battle royals have been?
–Tim “Mr. Wrestling” Woods gets a farewell tour.
–Draw 3,700 fans putting on a house show, or let your crew spend Thanksgiving with their families? You know how Vince McMahon is going choose.
Plus, what if Tully Blanchard had dedicated himself to being a top star in ECW?
