Episode 156: …Of The Apocalypse

This week STICK TO WRESTLING is joined by Matt Mann, and we celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the week the Four Horsemen were formed! On the podcast this week:

–The events that led up to the formation of the Four Horsemen, which actually started almost a year prior to the actual formation of the group.

–In their first official act as a faction, the Horsemen destroyed the Road Warriors. That had never happened before.

–Arn Anderson calling himself, Ric Flair, and Tully Blanchard “the three horsemen of the apocalypse” months before the faction was formed.

–Would Gino Hernandez have become a Horseman had he not passed away?

–Lex Luger making his Horsemen aspirations known upon his arrival in 1987.

–Dusty Rhodes as a member of the Horsemen in 1989? Hear about how that was the plan at one point.

Plus Johnny Mac talks about working with a girl who played Roller Derby, 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 rawbone podcast.

Episode 87: The Junkyard Warriors

On this week’s Stick To Wrestling we have Part 2 of our talk with Chris Tabar about the historic Clash Of The Champions 10 special, where the Four Horseman turned on Sting, and later that night Sting legitimately tore his ACL. We discuss:

–In one night Sting became the focal point of the promotion, but was injured and out indefinitely. The promotion turned Lex Luger babyface. What SHOULD they have done?

–Let’s be honest…were The Horsemen really in the wrong here? There’s an argument that Sting was flagrantly breaking the rules of that club.

–In the mid-80’s the Road Warriors got over in part because they were so much bigger than everyone else. We observe that by 1990 everyone else was big, and that the Roadies were no longer special.

–We put forward the argument that once Ric Flair had been turned babyface in 1989, he should have never been turned heel again.

We also mourn the loss of Kobe Bryant, and talk about Tito Santana winning the Intercontinental Title in Boston, who should have gotten the “Superstar Billy Graham run” with the WWF title after Bob Backlund’s reign ended, Chris Adams’ career, and more.

Episode 48: It’s All The Accountant’s Fault!

On this week’s Stick To Wrestling John and Sean are joined by Jon Boucher, a smart, longtime fan and a friend of the show!

This is Part Two of our mailbag show, where we take listener questions from the Stick To Wrestling Facebook group and we discussed the following at length:

–Was there an “accountant” who should have, but maybe didn’t, keep Jim Crockett up to date on how much debt they were in, or is he a non-existent scapegoat?

–What promotion should have had television in Boston that didn’t? –If you couldn’t get Terry Funk to come to WCW in 1989, who would be your choice to be the legend rival for Ric Flair after The Steamboat trilogy?

–Which wrestlers in the mid-to-late eighties who never wrestled for Jim Crockett promotions would have made the best Horseman along with Flair, Arn, and Tully?

–What were your earliest exposures to “dirtsheets” and other insider publications?

–What is the most tasteless angle or promotional tactic ever employed by a wrestling company?

–I’m dating a wrestling fan and want to show her some classics, what should I show her?

–Could Greg Gagne have made it outside the AWA?

–If you could watch any piece of wrestling footage whether an angle or specific time period of a territory that doesn’t exist on tape, what would it be?

–Could Gary Hart have been a good managerial fit for the WWF in the mid-80’s and if so what would you see him doing there?

Plus, of course, we spin off more questions from these questions, which is one of the things that makes the Stick To Wrestling podcast WICKED GOOD. Give us sixty minutes and and we’ll make it your favorite podcast.

Plus Sean describes being a live witness at the Mass Transit incident. What are you waiting for? DOWNLOAD THIS BAD BOY!
