This week STICK TO WRESTLING is joined by Steve Generalli, a knowledgeable longtime WWF fan. In the second segment of a two part series, we talk about the Most Valuable Players of the Bob Backlund era, year by year. We cover:
–Captain Lou Albano, and how if managers qualified for the MVP he might have won it in 1982.
–Magnificent Muraco’s arrival in 1981, and how he looked like the next Superstar Billy Graham.
–Pedro Morales becoming the rock-solid number two babyace in the WWF.
–1983 feeling like reruns with tried and true stars like Sgt. Slaughter, Magnificent Muraco, The Samoans, and more coming back.
–Mr. Fuji and Mr. Saito being absolute heat machines in the territory.
–How Greg Valentine’s return in 1981 looked like the end for Bob Backlund.
And more, plus Steve and I give you the top five on our WWF MVP ballot for 1981, 1982, and 1983, so what are you waiting for? DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN TO this wicked good bad boy!
