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.

Episode 48: It’s All The Accountant’s Fault!

On this week’s Stick To Wrestling John and Sean are joined by Jon Boucher, a smart, longtime fan and a friend of the show!

This is Part Two of our mailbag show, where we take listener questions from the Stick To Wrestling Facebook group and we discussed the following at length:

–Was there an “accountant” who should have, but maybe didn’t, keep Jim Crockett up to date on how much debt they were in, or is he a non-existent scapegoat?

–What promotion should have had television in Boston that didn’t? –If you couldn’t get Terry Funk to come to WCW in 1989, who would be your choice to be the legend rival for Ric Flair after The Steamboat trilogy?

–Which wrestlers in the mid-to-late eighties who never wrestled for Jim Crockett promotions would have made the best Horseman along with Flair, Arn, and Tully?

–What were your earliest exposures to “dirtsheets” and other insider publications?

–What is the most tasteless angle or promotional tactic ever employed by a wrestling company?

–I’m dating a wrestling fan and want to show her some classics, what should I show her?

–Could Greg Gagne have made it outside the AWA?

–If you could watch any piece of wrestling footage whether an angle or specific time period of a territory that doesn’t exist on tape, what would it be?

–Could Gary Hart have been a good managerial fit for the WWF in the mid-80’s and if so what would you see him doing there?

Plus, of course, we spin off more questions from these questions, which is one of the things that makes the Stick To Wrestling podcast WICKED GOOD. Give us sixty minutes and and we’ll make it your favorite podcast.

Plus Sean describes being a live witness at the Mass Transit incident. What are you waiting for? DOWNLOAD THIS BAD BOY!
