This week on STICK TO WRESTLING we take a look at the NWA during the Spring of 1988! Lot’s to discuss here with the first Clash of the Champions special, the Crockett Cup tournament, Lex Luger’s recent turn, the Midnight Rider, and there were only three members of the Four Horsemen…until Barry Windham’s turn. On the discussion table:
–We took questions from the Stick To Wrestling Universe, and most of the questions were about Dusty Rhodes’ role as the booker of the company. What should have been done with Dusty?
–Nikita Koloff returns! Or was it Nikita’s much smaller younger brother?
–Al Perez and Gary Hart invade the NWA. Why did we expect more from them?
–The NWA had the mother of all angles just sitting there waiting for them, and they blew it. We’ll tell you which one it was.
–Why did Sting get the main event at the Clash of the Champions instead of Lex Luger?
–Can the NWA of this timeframe be discussed without a long talk about the Midnight Rider?
Plus Johnny Mac provides two big, diverse answers to the “who should have replaced Dusty Rhodes as the NWA’s booker” question, so what are you waiting for? Download and listen to this wicked good podcast today!
STICK TO WRESTLING…give us sixty minutes and perhaps indeed, we’ll give you a rawbone wrestling podcast!
