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 73: They’re not booing. They’re saying “DUUUUUUDES”

This week John McAdam and Sean Goodwin are joined by Jammie Ward, and we review Halloween Havoc ’89, thirty years later. Both John and Jammie attended the show and can provide a unique perspective. We discuss:

–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!
