Episode 92: What The World Was Watching

This week STICK TO WRESTLING is joined by popular guest Brandon Rice. It’s Wrestlemania Season, so we talk about the first one, held in 1985. We discuss:

–We talk about David Schultz trying to pick a fight with Mr. T weeks before the show.

–The Hulk Hogan vs Roddy Piper match on MTV that introduced Mr. T into the angle.

–The wave of pre-show appearances by Hulk Hogan and Mr. T, and them hosting Saturday Night Live the night before the show.

–The riot that almost occurred when the Felt Forum oversold over 1,000 tickets.

–What if Wrestlemania was a flop?

–Where and how did we see the first Wrestlemania?

–Had The Freebirds stayed in the WWF, what role might they have played at Wrestlemania?

–Muhammad Ali was heavily hyped as the referee for the main event, but he actually had a very minor role as the ref outside the ring. What happened?

Plus we hype a pool for a tournament that’s not going to happen! 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 will give you a rawbone podcast.
