Episode 160: Hogan Goes To Hell, Or At Least Was Told To

This week STICK TO WRESTLING is joined by popular guest Thomas Bane, and we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Bash at the Beach ’96! We discuss the following and more:

—Supposedly Kevin Nash didn’t want Hulk Hogan in The Outsiders.

—Ric Flair was one of the best promos in history, but he was often terrible on the stick around this time.

—It was 1996, but someone called Rey Mysterio Jr vs Psycosis “the first great match of the 21st century”.

—We didn’t realize it at the time, but WWF castoff such as Bobby Heenan, Gene Okerlund, Randy Savage, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Jimmy Hart, Miss Elizabeth, and Hulk Hogan really did help WCW.

—The wisdom of putting Ray Traylor and John Tenta, both superheavyweights, in a match where they had to climb a pole.

—How this show ushered in a second career for the seemingly finished Hulk Hogan.

Plus Johnny Mac talks about driving to Hartford to see Ric Flair wrestle for “one last time” back in 1995, so what are you waiting for? Download and listen to this wicked good bad boy!

Stick To Wrestling- give us sixty minutes and perhaps indeed, we’ll give you a rawboned and wicked good podcast.
