Episode 132: Flair Is In A Limo While Luger Rides The Bus

The week STICK TO WRESTLING is joined by Max Levy and we talk about the demise of the WWF in the early to mid 90’s. So what happened?

–The steroid scandal, shrinking wrestlers, and an issue the fans could no longer turn a blind eye to.

–Berry Orton (named after Wild Red Berry) had a casual conversation with John Arezzi that morphed into a nationwide scandal.

–Was pro wrestling, at the end of the day, just an 80’s fad?

–The ridiculous and heavily pushed characters like Doink The Clown and Papa Shango that drove fans away.

–Sgt. Slaughter’s push, and the WWF tying their storylines to an ongoing real-life war.

–Hulk Hogan gets stale, and eventually leaves.

And more, plus this episode goes into overtime, so what are you waiting for? DOWNLOAD AND LISTEN TO this wicked good bad boy!
