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 14: Buddy Landel Did Not Need To Travel To Hawaii To Hang Ten

John McAdam and Sean Goodwin are back for the final installment of the “Stick To Wrestling” three part series featuring all things 1985 World Championship Wrestling, Mid-Atlantic Wrestling, and Georgia Championship Wrestling.

We dive deep into Starrcade ’85 and the big angles that led up to it including the historic angle where Flair shows a lack of gratitude by turning on Dusty right after Rhodes saves Ric from the Koloffs (of course McAdam sides with Flair here).

There’s are also debates on whether they turned the right wrestler for Starrcade, and whether or not the title should have legitimately changed hands that night. Plus there’s a brief aside on Kerry Von Erich and wrestling memorabilia. Wrestling is stuck to us, so we STICK TO WRESTLING!
