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

Re: Wrasslin Podcasts

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.
