Episode 75: Paul Ellering Was The Original Miss Elizabeth

Very recently the WWE Network released footage from the November 6, 1983 show held at The Omni arena in Atlanta. What’s old is truly new again as this was formerly unseen material! We analyze:

–The main event of Ted Dibiase vs Tommy Rich, and how Ted Dibiase was a godsend to this promotion. The 11/6/83 version of Tommy Rich, not so much.

Plus we take shots at Paul Ellering and Ole Anderson, and we talk about the buildup and planned push of the Sawyer brothers. What are you waiting for?
