September 17 is the 40th Anniversary of Ric Flair winning his first NWA title and we celebrate the day by having popular co-host Brandon Hefner return to STICK TO WRESTLING! Among the things we discuss:

–Was the average fan surprised when Flair won?

–Who would have been the alternative choices to having Flair as NWA champion?

–Would Charlotte have been a better choice as the city Flair won the title in?

–Did Eddie Graham and Dusty Rhodes try to undermine Flair’s title reign?

–Which promoters wanted Flair as champion, and which did not?

Plus we talk about Michael Hayes ‘ being announced as appearing at the Boston Garden in 1983 and the place coming unglued, so what are so what are you waiting for? Download and listen to this wicked good bad boy!

Episode 100: Plastic

This week Stick To Wrestling is joined by Sean Grande, who is not only a lifelong wrestling fan who grew up walking distance from Madison Square Garden, but is also the VOICE OF THE BOSTON CELTICS! Everyone in the Boston area knows who Sean is. We talk:

–The 1981 angle where the WWF title was held up in New York following the Bob Backlund vs Greg Valentine match.

–How the Madison Square Garden and Boston Garden shows were both very different and very similar.

–Why we were surprised that Harley Race challenging Bob Backlund in 1980 was a great draw and a poor match.

–Why the Junior Heavyweight Title never got over in the Northeast.

–The wrestlers we felt had a legitimate chance of taking the title from Bob Backlund

Plus Sean Grande and John McAdam share memories of both being at Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. We didn’t Stick To Wrestling the entire time this week, but the podcast somehow WICKED GOOD regardless. What are you waiting for? Download and listen to this bad boy!
