This week on Stick To Wrestling John McAdam and Sean Goodwin are joined by Brad Breitzman, a show favorite who grew up in AWA country and is a former contributor for the Pro Wrestling Torch. Brad shares his fandom of the recently passed Gene Okerlund and his views as an AWA fan in the early 80’s.
-How Gene Okerlund was the man who got Jesse Ventura over, and Bobby Heenan even more over.
-Why Verne Gagne wasn’t a fan of the Apter Mags.
-What a celebrity Gene Okerlund was in AWA country BEFORE he left for the WWF.
-How getting old sucks, and one of the worst parts of it is seeing the heroes you grew up worshiping passing on.
-When we all found out when the blood was real, and when the wrestlers changed identities.
-How Vince McMahon monkey-wrenched WrestleRock ’86. And was Prince going to perform as part of that show? Yes, that Prince.
-Brad tells the grossest non female period blood story ever.
-An old story Paul E. told Johnny Mac about how out of touch Verne was in the late 80’s. Hogan calls the local Minneapolis radio station to say that’s he’d won the REAL “world title”.
Plus: McAdam taunts Alabama football!
