Aren't i gotta play it A man that is all the fields for me. Money brings back some memories for me to my friend So listen the show opens with tony. Shivani and johnny weaver and we all know about tony but arm. What did you know johnny weaver. And do you have any fun stories as we start the show here it was just a guy that was just. He was a veteran and had his career under his belt and had a great career and was very popular in the carolinas. You know he was one of those faces the you saw. Hey this home team and what a nice manny was really was Along with penny weaver. Who is his ex wife and really nice lady to johnny. Weaver was was like the face of this show. At that time. Yeah we got crusher khruschev berry berry. So who would then be smash. He's taking on mark. Fleming in this one the coal officer at ringside and these are these three here. The nwea world six man tag champions at the time you would get involved more with six tags later on in your jim crockett premier. Jim crockett promotions. Run here but what are some of the pros and cons of working a six man tag. Compared to a normal tag it gives you a chance to to have the opportunity that other than one guy sitting on the floor and not getting that experience and stay in the loop to all guys being involved in the match and you can never get enough reps. Get enough match time. You know when you're out in our industry Even though we were working in those days every single day still the tv exposure you know was incredible and It was just a different different scenario. Six-man tags aren't. I don't know if i mentioned enough top at this is one of the first. Tv matches that you're going to be on on this card as we watched the show. You're taking on sam. Houston here you. And i were talking beforehand. This wasn't your first televised match. But one of the one of one of the first few For sure here of eighty-five yeah. It could have been second debuted and broke kids arm and manny fernandez. Kinda got into my business. And i had to give him. What's what's four. And i left him lay on and i was. You know pretty good launch for tv in those days have come out and have that kind of impact so this is probably week to add to not know sam. Houston never met him. But i found out pretty quickly. He's he's pretty season hand at this point already. She experienced the tremendous performer. A.
