Episode 157: Apartment Fire

This week STICK TO WRESTLING is joined by the King of Recovery himself, Jim Valley! The topic for the show was originally about the 30th Anniversary of Ric Flair leaving WCW after being fired by Jim Herd. We discussed that, but the conversation was not so regimented that we didn’t talk about other things, including:

–Roddy Piper’s 1979 babyface turn in Portland.

–Hulk Hogan’s initial run in WCW.

–The Portland / Pacific Northwest territory’s lack of coverage in the Apter Mags.

–The WWF’s brilliant decisions after the courts declared they could no longer use the image of Ric Flair’s WCW championship belt.

–The evolution of Sting.

–The Road Warrior’s 1988 turn, and why it was a bad idea.

Plus Johnny Mac had to do over half the show in a closet with the door closed because the landscapers showed up right at recording time, so what are you waiting for? Download and listen to this wicked good bad boy!

Episode 156: …Of The Apocalypse

This week STICK TO WRESTLING is joined by Matt Mann, and we celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the week the Four Horsemen were formed! On the podcast this week:

–The events that led up to the formation of the Four Horsemen, which actually started almost a year prior to the actual formation of the group.

–In their first official act as a faction, the Horsemen destroyed the Road Warriors. That had never happened before.

–Arn Anderson calling himself, Ric Flair, and Tully Blanchard “the three horsemen of the apocalypse” months before the faction was formed.

–Would Gino Hernandez have become a Horseman had he not passed away?

–Lex Luger making his Horsemen aspirations known upon his arrival in 1987.

–Dusty Rhodes as a member of the Horsemen in 1989? Hear about how that was the plan at one point.

Plus Johnny Mac talks about working with a girl who played Roller Derby, so what are you waiting for? Download and listen to this wicked good bad boy!
