Episode 77: Seventy Years Of The King

Stick To Wrestling welcomes Shawn Heimberger as this week’ guest, since one guy on the show with that name apparently isn’t enough.

It’s Jerry Lawler’s 70th birthday and we celebrate The King’s legendary career! Jerry had two no questions asked Hall of Fame careers, first as a Memphis wrestler and then again as a WWF commentator and personality. We talk about some of the highlights of Lawler’s career, and also:

–Jim Cornette resigns from NWA Powerrr, his top ten one liners of all time, and his heat with Baby Doll.

–WWE Survivor Series, and the decline of The Fiend.

–Did Bob Backlund draw houses in the WWF, or did they draw in spite of him?

–Jerry Lawler and Bill Dundee: real life rivals.

–What is our favorite Jerry Lawler match of all time?

–What is our favorite Jerry Lawler angle of all time?

–Did the 1982 Pedro Morales vs Greg Valentine feud get the right push?

Plus Shawn talks about Bob Backlund evolving into a nerdy gym teacher.

Episode 52: Bill Watts Had A Strong Pimp Hand

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It’s the 52nd episode of the only WICKED GOOD podcast out there, Stick To Wrestling. We celebrate by delivering a special two hour podcast, one hour where we stick to wrestling followed by one where where we totally do not! Our guest for the first hour is none other than a fellow Arcadian Vanguarder, the legendary Jeff Bowdren! We discuss the following topics:

–What tag team wrestler would have been a better singles wrestler?

–Who would have been the best heel in the 80s to work a program with Jerry Lawler, but was never booked in Memphis?

–Should Bill Watts have made a move sooner when he had the TBS timeslot in 1985?

–If Hogan doesn’t get the role in “Rocky 3”, does he remain in WWF as a heel?

–Inspired by Andy Ruiz’s upset: Who was the best worker despite not having the best look or physique?

–What tape / match / footage is the “crown jewel” of your collections?

And more!

Then there’s an hour of open frivolity, including but not limited to Johnny Mac talking about the unchaperoned New Years Eve party he tried to organize as an eighth grader.
