Episode 145: Worst Tag Team Of The Year

This week STICK TO WRESTLING is once again joined by John Muse, and we do Part Two of our 1990 Year End Awards. John McAdam and John Muse practically wrote the 1990 Wrestling Observer Yearbook, so who better to discuss the 1990 Year End Awards? In the discussion:

–Who was 1990 Wrestler of the Year? Both McAdam and Muse have surprising choices.

–John McAdam picked him as 1980’s Wrestler of the Year. A decade later he’s Worst Wrestler.

–1989 had four great pay per views. 1990 had none, but one of them had to win Best Show.

–Best Tag Team? There were two obvious contenders.

–John Muse’s pick for “Best Heel” barely wrestled in 1990. That’s how great he was.

–Anyone want to guess who got a vote for Worst Tag Team? 🙂

Plus John Muse talks about driving from Michigan to Philadelphia in 1990 for a couple of indy shows, 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 144: My Comfort Food

–Mike Awesome had a lot of potential and WCW wasted all of it.
