This week we discuss the 1986 demise of World Class Championship Wrestling. Included in this conversation:

–Did the Freebirds return to World Class too soon?

–Should WCCW have pulled out of the NWA and anointed Rick Ruse as their world champion? |

–Should Chris Adams have remained as a heel, with Gino Hernandez turning babyface?

–World Class lost a lot of talent to Bill Watts’ UWF right after the 1986 Texas Stadium show, and replaced them with with some older veterans. Was this the way to go?

–Al Madril and Brian Adidas became the lead heel faction. We’re there better options? Really, were there worse options? –Black Bart was made WCCW world champion. Was there a better option? Really, was there a worse option?

Plus, we share more general knowledge and thoughts on WCCW in general, and what led up to the 1986 collapse. What are you waiting for? DOWNLOAD THIS BAD BOY!

We discuss the year in wrestling that was 1983, the final time the territories existed peacefully- well, sort of. In hindsight there were plenty of writing on the subway wall telling us that the wrestling world would soon be radically changing and that the “War of ‘84“ was inevitable. Download, listen, and discover that it really wasn’t Vincent Kennedy McMahon who killed the territories, despite any claims to the contrary.
