Episode 124: Starz

This week STICK TO WRESTLING keeps it local with Natick, MA’s own Dave Flaherty! Dave moved from Natick to Florida over fifty years ago, so he’s more than qualified to talk classic wrestling from the Sunshine State! We discuss:

–Jack Brisco getting a monster push in the 70’s. Dave said Jack was forced down everyone’s throat!

–Dusty Rhodes’ famous turn in 1974.

–Jim Crockett lending talent to the group in 1987.

–Dave being present when Terry Funk won the NWA title in Miami Beach in 1975.

–Dusty Rhodes trying to resurrect the territory in 1989.

And more, plus Johnny Mac talks “Bedlam From Boston” and Dave shares a memory that makes John seek out a song that he hadn’t heard or thought of since sixth grade, so what are you waiting for? DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN TO this wicked good bad boy!

Stick To Wrestling- give us sixty 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!

Episode 15: The Stick To Wrestling Listeners Demand Answers

John McAdam and Sean Goodwin are back for the most recent installment of the “Stick To Wrestling” podcast where we answer YOUR questions! What did ECW need to do to succeed nationally? What if Jim Crockett did not sell to Ted Turner? How on earth did a supercard with a lineup as weak as Wrestlemania I succeed? What if WCW won the war? Where are Brian Last’s pants? Not to guilt trip anyone, we would NEVER do that, but John and Sean missed the Browns vs Jets game to tackle (see what we did there?) these important questions!

Episode 12: Black Saturday Was Worth It

Sean Goodwin is back! He and John McAdam discuss the 1985 JCP / Mid-Atlantic product, the promotion’s take over of the TBS and what led to it, Dusty Rhodes’ early days as booker for Mid-Atlantic after leaving Florida, Ole Anderson’s 1985 heel turn, and much more. It’s an interesting, informative, yet informal discussion as usual!
