Episode 86: Coca Cola “Executive” Tully Blanchard

On this week’s STICK TO WRESTLING we talk about the 30th Anniversary of Clash of the Champions 10. This was a historic night where The course of the NWA was changed forever, as within two hours Sting gets tossed from the Horsemen, becomes the promotion’s unquestioned top babyface, and tears his ACL, putting him out for months. We discuss:

–The hosts think Ole Anderson’s promo where he fired Sting from the Horsemen and why it was magnificent. Tabe disagrees. –

-Brian Pillman gets a tag team partner…Tom Zenk. The Z-Man. WCW didn’t get it’s audience.

–Tully Blanchard was supposed to return on this night, but he didn’t. We tell you what happened.

–A bad Steve Williams vignette, a Soccer Moms idea of who and what “Dr. Death” was. Johnny Mac lays out how Doc should have been presented.

–We talk about the brilliant, semi-scripted interview where Ole Anderson kicks Sting out of the Four Horsemen. This was pro wrestling improv at it’s zenith.

–On this night, Mil Mascaras wrestled Cactus Jack, and for twenty years Mick Foley has been venting against Mascaras. All three of the guys on the show buck that conventional wisdom and side with Mascaras.

–The silliness of Cactus Jack getting into a fight with a drummer and not mopping the floor with him.

–The silliness of the finish a “Falls Count Anywhere Match” taking place off camera, in a bathroom.

–Terry Funk interviewing Lex Luger should have been good, right? Maybe wrestlers do need scripts.

Plus, John shares a story about hanging out with a wrestling friend on Old Orchard Beach checking his phone once an hour to see if he has bookings. This week only, give us 60 Seconds and maybe 59 more minutes and perhaps indeed, we’ll give you a RAWBONE podcast.

–The NWA had four consecutive outstanding Pay-per-view events before this one. Could they run the streak to five?
–Who got the biggest pop on this show?
–Should Lex Luger have been in the main event instead of The Great Muta?
–How did The Skyscrapers wind up feuding with the Road Warriors?
–What were our initial thoughts on Brian Pillman?
–What was it like when Doom made their first appearance, having never been on television before?
–Why was the promotion jobbing Jim Cornette and The Midnight Express?
–Can Stick To Wrestling provide a first-hand, full, detailed, moment by moment description of everything, smell of the air, sounds of the fans, as the Dynamic Dudes are announced? Of course we can!

Plus Jammie shares a story about standing on a chair at the show, the chair collapsing while Lex Luger laughed at him and offered no assistance. What are you waiting for, DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN TO THIS BAD BOY!
