Episode 180: The Greatest Heel Turn Ever

This week STICK TO WRESTLING is joined by popular guest host Steve Crawford as we present Part Two of our conversation on Starrcade ’86, which happened 35 years ago this month. We discuss:

–The Midnight Express vs The Road Warriors Scaffold Match, a bout that wasn’t just dangerous, it was reckless. No one should have ever been asked to participate in one of these.(Did they do another one the next year? Of course they did).

–This was the absolute peak of the Rock & Roll Express, as the promotion would soon make a giant marketing error with them.

–We now have what was once unthinkable- A Russian babyface.

–The future of the Arn Anderson and Ole Anderson team after not winning the tag titles from the Rock & Roll Express.

–What was the original plan for Magnum T.A. on this night? (Yes, loyal listeners, this has been previously discussed on Stick To Wrestling. But someone asked).

–WHY wasn’t this event available on pay-per-view television?

Plus we provide physics information from “The Splat Calculator” and Mike Gunter provides his reaction to Jim Cornette’s bump from the second row, 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 wicked good and rawboned podcast.
