Episode 137: The Other Superfly

This week STICK TO WRESTLING is once again joined by Brandon Hefner as we discuss two cards that happened forty years ago, one Championship Wrestling from Florida show and one Championship Wrestling from Georgia card. Of course the shows themselves are great conversation starters. We discuss:

–How Ted Dibiase, Terry Gordy, Dick Slater, Tony Atlas, and Mike Graham all could have carried the NWA world championship.

–The short term team of Ole Anderson and Assassin #1, two of wrestling’s all time greatest heels.

–How Steve Olsonoski was not exactly Captain Charisma.

–Kevin Sullivan’s brilliant and unexpected heel turn in 1981.

-Why Battle Royals suck and two ring Battle Royals are even worse.

–The subtle hint that foretold Sir Oliver Humperdink’s turn back to being a heel.

Plus we share the story of how Dick Slater beat the snot out of then college and future NFL star John Matuszak, who was six-foot-eight and weighed two hundred eighty pounds. This happened WHEN SLATER WAS STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL, 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 118: …And Say You’re Sorry

STICK TO WRESTLING is joined for the first time by Brent Nicholas and we discuss shows that took place this week in 1986! Included in the conversation:

–Terry Gordy, who as UWF world champion eld up favorably compared to Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan. One Man Gang as UWF champion did not.

–Terry Funk pretending to blow out his knee at Wrestlemania 2 so that he could leave the WWF right away.

–The abysmal failure of Dick Slater’s “The Rebel” gimmick in the WWF and how his career never recovered from it.

–Jimmy Snuka vs Colonel DeBeers, perhaps the worst feud of all time.

–Who would have been a better opponent for Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania 2? We consider Nikita Koloff, Bruiser Brody, and Terry Gordy.

–The Midnight Rockers looked like a joke when they debuted…then the bell rang.

Plus we discuss the controversial Vince McMahon / Trish Stratus angle and storyline from 2001, so what are you waiting for? DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN TO this wicked good bad boy!
