Episode 35: Valentine’s Day

This week STICK TO WRESTLING is joined by Mike Gunter and we focus on Johnny Valentine’s career. Mike grew up in the Carolinas watching Johnny Valentine, and he carries a unique perspective into his career. This week we talk about:

–Mike being IN ATTENDANCE for a Johnny Valentine vs Wahoo McDaniel match and he describes how brutal it was.
–The plane crash that ended Johnny’s career, and what would have become of the rest of his career had that not happened. Mike also provides perspective of what the media coverage of the event was like in the area.
–Tim Woods was in that plane with a bunch of heels. What he did to cover that up was amazing, and we discuss it.
–Johnny Valentine’s feuds with Bearcat Wright and Paul Jones.
–What Johnny Valentine did when he was stuck in Argentina with no money and no way to get home.
–The story of Johnny Valentine getting fired in Florida.
–And of course, Johnny Valentine’s obsession with ribs, some of which were far from harmless.

Plus there’s brief tribute to the late, great Frank Robinson!

It’s a very cool discussion. Actually, it’s wicked cool! Every week give us sixty minutes and we’ll give you a breathtaking podcast – STICK TO WRESTLING!

Episode 18: Oh, no…Dusty got screwed out of the NWA title again!

This week John McAdam and Sean Goodwin begin their discussion on the 25 greatest angles in the history of Championship Wrestling from Florida. As usual, the hour flies by as we have so much to talk about, not only the angles themselves, but the legends who participated in them such as The Funks, The Briscos, Johnny Valentine, Ernie Ladd, Harley Race, and so many more including the American Dream himself, Dusty Rhodes. Then of course we bring up the Red Sox vs Yankees series because we can’t follow simple instructions and STICK TO WRESTLING!
