Episode 15: The Stick To Wrestling Listeners Demand Answers

John McAdam and Sean Goodwin are back for the most recent installment of the “Stick To Wrestling” podcast where we answer YOUR questions! What did ECW need to do to succeed nationally? What if Jim Crockett did not sell to Ted Turner? How on earth did a supercard with a lineup as weak as Wrestlemania I succeed? What if WCW won the war? Where are Brian Last’s pants? Not to guilt trip anyone, we would NEVER do that, but John and Sean missed the Browns vs Jets game to tackle (see what we did there?) these important questions!

John McAdam and Sean Goodwin are back for the final installment of the “Stick To Wrestling” three part series featuring all things 1985 World Championship Wrestling, Mid-Atlantic Wrestling, and Georgia Championship Wrestling.

We dive deep into Starrcade ’85 and the big angles that led up to it including the historic angle where Flair shows a lack of gratitude by turning on Dusty right after Rhodes saves Ric from the Koloffs (of course McAdam sides with Flair here).

There’s are also debates on whether they turned the right wrestler for Starrcade, and whether or not the title should have legitimately changed hands that night. Plus there’s a brief aside on Kerry Von Erich and wrestling memorabilia. Wrestling is stuck to us, so we STICK TO WRESTLING!
