Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

I can't get enough of the Starrcade Memorial. I've gone through it at least 5 times, probably 10 times. The bookends are the best ones 83, 84, 99, 2000. 87 is also great.

Have you not listened to the SMT yet?

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

I don't believe I have. At least this 1983 episode hasn't been familiar, and I doubt I would have just jumped into the middle.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

It's interesting to hear Gene Kiniski get raked over the coals. Obviously he was before my day, but he was always of unique interest to me because he spent his retirement years in the small town that I grew up in. My mom always told me that he used to be the world champion, and I always assumed that she was getting something wrong because he definitely never got mentioned on any wrestling that I ever watched. But he was a perpetual presence around town because he kept up a pretty solid jogging regimen that would always take him past our house, always jogging around shirtless despite being a heavy old guy.

I've seen that Flair-Race match before, but I think I'll have to rewatch it at some point just to focus more on Kiniski apparently bugging the **** out of Race throughout it. I knew he had sort of botched the finish, but had never noticed any of the rest.

Thumbs up Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

Excerpt from the Steve Austin show where Billy Gunn describes what great traveling buddies he and Steve became:

Quote:
the incident occurred at a hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana. Austin and Gunn scored the last vacant hotel room in the city and were going up to the room after having a few cocktails. Gunn said that Austin attacked him as they got into the hotel room, apparently for no reason.
“We get out of the car and I put the key in the door. The door barely cracks and I get crushed! I thought somebody had tried to mug us. I literally get crushed and I look around and lo and behold it’s little Steve, it’s still little Steve, and he’s trying to kick the s–t out of me! Like, I’m not understanding where this had come from. So I put the brakes on it by trying to choke him out. He goes, ‘okay, okay, okay, okay, okay, okay.’ I go, ‘okay.’ I get up, go to walk across to the couch, and wham, I get Pearl Harbored again! So now we’re tussling around again. I finally hook him. What am I going to let you go for? I go, ‘what is wrong with you? What are you doing?’ I go, ‘stop it!’ He goes, ‘okay.’ I go, ‘do you promise?’ He goes, ‘yes,’ so I go this time and take him for his word. I let him up and here we go again. So now we’re crashing through things. I hook him up again and I go, ‘this is it.’ I said to him, ‘I’m going to rip your head off if you don’t stop!’ I go, ‘stop!’ He goes, ‘okay.’ I go, ‘do you promise?’ He goes, ‘yes!’ I go, ‘do you swear?’ He goes, ‘yes, I swear on my kids.’ I went, ‘okay, alright.’ So you swear on that. I get up. Here it comes! I’m walking through the door. He hits me into the door and goes, ‘I’ve got billygoats!'”
That's the funniest **** I've ever read in my life. I SCSA

With all the stories (hundreds) I've heard and read of wrestlers destroying hotel rooms, it's amazing any hotels let wrestlers stay there.

I'm not sure what my previous highlight of the original WrestleMania was, but thanks to TLF, it's "I AM a big leaguer!"

Agreed 100%. I’ve used this line on my wife when she was breaking my calls about something. She had no idea how to react.

calls

Following up on this, it has caused me to develop this ridiculous tic (thankfully confined solely to moments when I'm listening to TLF by myself) where, if either host says the word "leg," I repeat it back in Executioner-voice.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

Next week on Bruce Prichard’s podcast, they are doing WM XIX. Since this was one of my favorites; I wanted to rewatch it so that it was fresh in my mind. It was then I realized that I had never listened the TLF’s podcast on it and decided to fire that one up from rat. I can say that it was easily one of my favorite podcasts that they have done. It had the right amp not of Lapsed Hogan which just cracks me up every tine. There is just something about a paranoid Hogan constantly fearing someone shooting on him or sneaking up for a roll up that just tickles me to no end

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

Souled Out 1997 (Part 2): 1:42:35-1:46:00. That is the best paranoid Hogan skit ever.

I was listening to the AWA Super Sunday (Part 2) episode a few days ago and JP did Hogan paranoid of a Richter push and I was dying.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

Having continued to work my way through the Starrcade TLF stuff...seriously, Bob Caudle is a lot better than the treatment he gets on the podcast.

That said, I can forgive the assassination as a small price to pay for the way that they've destroyed Kevin Nash.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

How many times can he have Vince Russo on his podcast? I honestly think I’d rather listen to him talk about hunting knives and maintenance at the Broken Skull Ranch before another Russo podcast.

“Here is what you don’t understand, Bro!”

The roasting of Dick Ebersol on the latest TLF (Main Event '88) is tremendously funny.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

Hulk changing the record books at the 8:30 mark of part two was one of the funniest things ever. "In the margin next to WM VI it says, 'see Halloween Havoc 98'" LOLOL.

The Hulk/duck stuff wasn't as much my thing. All of the business about mainstream media coverage just slayed me though.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

Every time JP starts singing a ****ing theme song on TLF, I cringe terribly until the pain ends. It always takes twice as long to end as I'm expecting it to.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

I don't mind the iconic theme like Flair's so much but I find it irritating when he's singing some obscure song like Tito's that nobody knows.

Also, I think he's just pandering to the @lapsedjukebox account so they have fodder to do stuff with.

I really really dislike the "digging in the crates" series.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

I haven't listened to the latest one, but based on the first two I agree (which is why I haven't bothered with the latest one). It does seem like they've run into a problem where they've already hit most of the most iconic stuff in wrestling history, so they're being forced to try to come up with new angles. I'm just glad they're not doing it consecutively like with other series.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

Tatanka's turn was SummerSlam '94 and he surely would have been considered a bust as a heel by '96. Nash spent most of '95 as a face and really hadn't gone full heel by '96 despite his post-match attack on Bret at Survivor Series. He was playing tweener for a while, and it was a good character but not exactly a heel.

Backlund was a great heel, but he had already transitioned to the "running for President" gimmick by '96 and wasn't really wrestling at all. Yeah, the pickings were slim. Vader did go WWF the same month as that tweet though, and then Foley was only a few months later.

If that Piper rumor had legs, I'm glad that they shifted gears. That would have been instead of Savage-Warrior.

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

I was thinking Nash was a heel at WM 11 for some reason.

Quote:

Funny you say that because if you remember, he came out on crutches with Virgil @WM7 because he had a bad leg. I wonder if that hip injury is what made them pivot to Warrior/Savage.

I wonder what Warrior would've done had that Piper/Savage thing gone through. vs. Perfect for the IC strap? The only thing that seems even reasonable for him is a rematch with Hulk.

Hot take: Bossman should've beaten Perfect for the IC belt at WM 7. This was the culmination of months of Heenan making fun of him and his mother and BBM had gone through the rest of the Heenan Family. I'm ok with it though as we got that great Hitman/Perfect match.
