Episode 170: Bloodied Old Men In Their Underwear

Mailbag episodes where we answer the listeners questions are always popular, so why not finally do another one? STICK TO WRESTLING is joined once again by popular guest Jayce “KO” Naccarato, and among the things we discuss are:

What were the best and worst looking championship belts of the 80’s?

If Crockett doesn’t lose Piper to the WWE, could they have taken the company national with a feud built around Piper and Flair?

What hurt the business more: the magazines, the newsletters, or the internet?

What if Ted Dibiase stays with the UWF after the Crockett purchase?

Why did Jesse Ventura and Adrian Adonis never get pushed as a tag team during their 1981 / 1982 run in the WWF?

What if Ric Flair went with Tully & Arn to the WWF in 1988?

Plus Johnny Mac talks about his earliest days on the internet and pointing out the impracticalities of a 1995 Fabulous Freebird reunion in WCW, so what are 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 wicked good and rawboned podcast.

Episode 169: You’re Not Gonna Turn On Me, Are You?

Popular guest Christian Boddie returns to Stick To Wrestling and we thave Part Two of our discussion about our favorite Summer in wrestling which happened thirty five years ago: 1986. Discussed on this week’s episode:

–Paul Orndorff turning on Hulk Hogan may have been obvious and an overly simplistic story, but their feud drew spectacularly.

–The AWA and World Class Championship Wrestling came into 1986 still looking and feeling like major league promotions. By the middle of this Summer they did not.

–Roddy Piper finally turns babyface and of course, is immediately in main events.

–The UWF putting on great television. The Freebirds and Eddie Gilbert’s crew are the lead heels while Hacksaw Duggan, Ted Dibiase, Steve Williams, and Terry Taylor are the top babyfaces. Bill Watts comes out of retirement and makes things even more interesting

–Championship Wrestling from Florida continues to spiral despite having the mega-talented Barry Windham and the promising Lex Luger in the promotion.

–The suspended Andre The Giant returns to the WWF…in disguise, as the Giant Machine.
