Episode 309: World’s Saddest Babyface

This week on STICK TO WRESTLING we review the 1984 Texas Stadium Spectacular, which was forty years ago. The dream came true and Kerry Von Erich became the NWA world heavyweight champion! Discussed on this episode:

–Was David Von Erich supposed to win the NWA title? We actually have a new take on this forty year old mystery.
–On this show the promotion laid the groundwork for the rest of 1984, and well into 1985. We tell you about it.
–Should World Class have had more outside talent on this show?
–We tell you about the wrestler on this show who was trying to turn himself into a traveling attraction, much like Andre The Giant.
–Was this show the absolute apex of World Class Championship Wrestling?
–The Von Erichs chasing the NWA title dates all the way back to Fritz vs Gene Kiniski. We discuss that.

Plus Johnny Mac takes a shot at David Manning, so what are you waiting for? Download and listen to this wicked good episode!
