Episode 317: It Was A Big Second

This week on STICK TO WRESTLING we focus on what was one of the biggest angles in wrestling history: Cyndi Lauper, one of the music industry’s biggest stars, appears on Piper’s Pit and the fireworks go off between she, Roddy Piper, and Captain Lou Albano. We quickly learned where this was all going, as Cyndi challenges The Captain to find a women’s wrestler to take on her new protege. The stage has been set for one of the biggest money angles in pro wrestling history.

Plus we discuss the other goings on in the WWF from forty years ago:

— The Sgt. Slaughter vs Iron Sheik feud coming to a close.
— The Roddy Piper vs Jimmy Snuka feud getting started.
— The WWF continues to roll not only in it’s traditional Northeast footing but in California as well.
— Buzz Sawyer entering and departing the company very quickly.
— The WWF invades Memphis, Louisville, and Nashville which were historically Lawler / Jarrett towns.
— The odd Adrian Adonis & Dick Murdoch vs The Samoans heels vs heels feud.

And more, plus there’s lots of rare and historic audio from this era, so what are you waiting for? Download and listen to this wicked good episode!
