Episode 278: Ramblin’ Man

This week on STICK TO WRESTLING we review the WWWF Madison Square Garden show from October 23, 1978 as well as the television show that aired beforehand, all with popular returning guest Vincent Waller! On the discussion table:

–Ernie Ladd had a pretty interesting schedule in 1978, and we tell you about it.
–Bob Backlund is the new WWWF champion…and he also wants to after the tag titles? This did not end well.
–It may not have been a showcase of technical wrestling, but Bruno Sammartino and Superstar Billy Graham had an exciting match with a logical conclusion.
–Some old WWWF preliminary matches were fun! Baron Mikel Scicluna vs S.D. Jones was not.
–Squash matches at Madison Squaare Garden? Do better, WWWF.
–During the Monday Night Wars we could see as many as three turns in a week. The old WWWF had one turn in three years.

Plus Johnny Mac discusses the angle that had mind turning into the wee hours of the morning so what are you waiting for? Listen to this episode for a wicked good time!

STICK TO WRESTLING…give us sixty minutes and perhaps indeed, we’ll give you a rawbone wrestling podcast!
