–How did this switch come about? We’ve all listened to different versions, Will and Johnny Mac tell you what they’ve heard.

–We talk about all of the wrestlers that appeared on the card, including Andre The Giant, Ted Dibiase, The Freebirds, Mr. Wrestling II, Mongolian Stomper, Robert Gibson, a young Jim Duggan, and more.
