Episode 147: DTA – Don’t Turn Austin

This week STICK TO WRESTLING continues it’s talk on Wrestlemania X7, universally considered one of the greatest pro wrestling events era and the pinnacle of The Attitude Era. On tap this week:

–The WWF was crazy, and I mean CRAZY, to turn Steve Austin and align him with Vince McMahon.

–The immediate creative collapse the WWF suffered after this show.

–Triple H was great, but that was not how a heel should be portrayed.

–The company had been giving a lot of spotlight to the McMahons before and during this show, but we hadn’t see anything yet.

–The legends battle royal.

–Chyna found herself in a really tough spot, and still managed to come across as an unsympathetic character.

Plus Johnny Mac complains about the company trying to make Stephanie McMahon into a c-word, 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 144: My Comfort Food

This week STICK TO WRESTLING is once again joined by John Muse. John McAdam and John Muse practically wrote the 1990 Wrestling Observer Yearbook, so who better to discuss the 1990 Year End Awards? In the discussion:

–Steve Austin winning Rookie of the Year in a landslide, and how it was obvious he had superstar potential straight out of wrestling school.

–Who deserved the Most Obnoxious prize? SO many to choose from.

–Junkyard Dog was nominated as 1980 Wrestler of the Year by John McAdam. By 1990 he was the worst of the worst.

–What was the Best Gimmick of 1990? Again, so many to choose from!

–How the NWA went from Best Promotion to Wrest Promotion in only twelve months.

–Could there be a more qualified Worst Gimmick contender than The Black Scorpion?

Plus Johnny Mac tells an odd story about going to Baltimore for the 1990 Great American Bash, so what are you waiting for? Download and listen to this wicked good bad boy!
