This week on STICK TO WRESTLING we celebrate the 35th Anniversary of SummerSlam ’88, the first SummerSlam ever! Discussed on this episode:
–Who was actually supposed to be the surprise guest on the Brother Love Show, someone who had never wrestled at Madison Square Garden, but did not make this show? We let you in on the surprise.
–Had either Ted Dibiase or Jesse Ventura ever been to the beach before, or even to a public pool? There’s a reason why we wonder.
–Wrestlemania was special. Survivor Series was special. This show…not as much.
–This was the final big WWF show for many long time, established stars.
–The wrestling game was changing, and Pay Per View events were becoming more and more commonplace.
–Baron Von Rashke is now managing the Powers of Pain. It’s been thirty five years and we’re still not sure why.
Plus Johnny Mac tells the story of how he found out that the Ultimate Warrior was winning the title on this night, 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!
