Episode 167: Weddings Are Not PPV Main Events, Nor Is This Team

This week STICK TO WRESTLING is joined by popular returning guest Brandon Rice, and we honor the Thirtieth Anniversary of Summerslam 1991. On deck for this week:

–This show was headlined by a tag team with members who were 48 and 52 years old, back in the day when they only had to come up with three pay per view main events per year.

–Or, was a fake wedding really the main event?

–Bret Hart and Curt Hennig put on a clinic in what was thought to be Curt Hennig’s final match due to back issues.

–Kerry Von Erich’s push was done, and we discuss the reasons. —Was Ricky Steamboat really a good fit for the 1991 version of the WWF?

–How things did not go according to plan after the WWF signed Virgil in 1991.

Plus Brandon shares a cool Summerslam ’91 memory and McAdam whines about being in New York City the day of the show, so what are you waiting for? Download and listen to this wicked good bad boy!

Episode 58: The Whole Reason I Came Here Was To Get Away From That F…

On this week’s STICK TO WRESTLING John McAdam and Sean Goodwin are joined by Thomas Bane, and we discuss the WWF thirty years ago, in the Summer of 1989. We talk about:

— Zeus, who got three extremely high profile main events despite not even being a wrestler. The locker room was not happy about this.
— Dusty Rhodes, who debuted with the WWF and got over despite being given a terrible gimmick. The locker room was not happy with Dusty’s emergence.
— Terry Taylor, who did not get over with a terrible gimmick.
— Dino Bravo, who supposedly had Jacques and Raymond Rougeau looking over their shoulders. We’ll tell you why.
— Barry Windham, Arn Anderson, and Tully Blanchard, who were all major stars as members of The Four Horsemen in the NWA a year earlier. None were major stars in the WWF.
— Roddy Piper, who returns to the WWF after being courted by the NWA.
— Andre The Giant, who could barely walk but was still wrestling full time.
— Tony Schiavone, who was not good in the WWF.
— Bad News Brown, who could have had a major run as a babyface.
— Jimmy Snuka, who returned to the WWF after a four year hiatus. This was a major shock and a potential liability, braddah.
Plus a pro wrestler scares poor ol’ Johnny Mac half to death in a bathroom. What are you waiting for?
